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...

Chase Your Dreams

This has been on my mind recently. When we are young, we are always told that we can do whatever we want when we grow up, but as time goes by, we are supposed to be more 'realistic' and more 'reasonable' and I don't know about you but this annoys me to the fullest.

Moral Victories

  How's everything going, Ardent? I want to chat about moral victories. You ever been really unproductive one day, then the next day you say you're gonna do 5 things, and you only get 3 done and then say, "Well at least I was more productive today that I was yesterday"? Well that's exactly what I'm talking about. These are moral victories - when you miss the mark, when you perform lower than your standard and then give yourself a pat on the back. Well, this needs to stop now. You haven't achieved what you set out to achieve. You've...
