Whatever It Takes

Guys, You got to want to win. The will to win must be bigger than all of your fears and worries, if you actually want to achieve what you set out to achieve at the start of the year. A lot of people have already given up on their goals or 'not started yet' because in hindsight it wasn't 'practical' or they have 'too many things going on'; but the fact is that's just another excuse. All you are doing is just saying, "I wanted it but now I don't". Simple as. The fact of the matter is that you're...

Why Your Long Process is Fine

Why Your Long Process is Fine

Lack of patience usually comes down to doing it for someone else. You're worried about someone's opinion on your 'hustle' taking long, so you want to do it now and quickly. But that leads to rushing. And rushing is always bad. Note that working with speed (which is good) is not the same as rushing. But it's about micro speed and macro patience.If you're doing it for your own reasons and not to impress someone else, then the fact that your process takes a long time shouldn't bother you. In fact, you should take pride in the fact that you're...

Persistence

The definition of persistence is continuing in a course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition. One of the most important variables of success is persistence. Never giving up. It may sound cliché but there is so much truth in this. I recently watched The Founder, a movie about how Ray Kroc built McDonald's into the huge successful franchise that it is today. It was very inspirational and I recommend it to everybody. Anyway, in this movie, towards the end, Ray Kroc said, "Nothing in the world can take the place of good old persistence. Talent will not; nothing...

Opportunity

Opportunity

Opportunities are abundant, and you need to make sure you seize them if they can get you to your goals. This seems self-explanatory but in actual fact, the truth of the matter is that usually we either think there aren't many opportunities and the people that 'find' the opportunities are 'lucky' or we simply just don't take advantage of them. We like to believe that the opportunity is only an opportunity if it comes to us and we don't have to do much. We wake up and then the prime minister or best footballer just happens to be in our...
