It is not about the destination but the journey.

Bit by bit, that’s how we progress.
Step by step leads to incremental progress.
Sudden and progress do not go together.

Each step you take,
Each action you undertake in the right direction
Will eventually leads to progress

You may not see results immediately.
You may feel as if you are not getting anywhere.
That’s because progress is not sudden.

So what does progress looks like? If you want to become debt-free Progress means avoiding further debt And paying off your outstanding debt until you have none left. If you want…

To do the extraordinary, you need to arise above mediocrity

Mediocrity is the bane of greatness. Nothing extraordinary could ever be achieved with a mediocre mindset. A mediocre is content with average. Mediocrity lacks passion Mediocrity prevents excellence Mediocrity denies progress Mediocrity guarantees ordinariness (status quo) To go from ordinary to extraordinary. You have to ARISE You’ve got to challenge yourself and the status quo You have to relentlessly aspire for “extra,” above the ordinary. Do you want to become extraordinary in your relationship? Arise, love, and care for the people around you. Do you want to be a superstar…

A goal without a system will produce an inconsistent result

We are accustomed to setting goals whenever we want to accomplish anything. We have been told that setting and going after our goals is the only way to achieve results. Setting goals is so important that we have people describe themselves as goal-getter, goal-oriented, goal-driven, and so on. Undoubtedly, setting and pursuing our goals can make it easier to get what we want in life, but it is also true that not everyone who had goals actually accomplished results.

It is reasonable to be curious as to why some people…

We often get ourselves in trouble when we get into the comparison game. We become stressed and sad because other people are ahead of us. We assumed that they have everything in life all working for them. We use other people as a benchmark to measure our progress. And if we don’t measure up to these standards, we buy into the notion that we are “falling behind.” We assume that we are too late. Too late to complete our education Too late to get married Too late to have a kid Too late to buy our house Too late to…

Always insist on being your best

From time to time, you will face a choice. A choice to accept to cut corners or follow the expected process A choice to do a mediocre job or to go above and beyond in your tasks.

We all have plans, goals, ambitions, and dreams of things we would like to see come true. While it is true that we may not accomplish success in everything we set out to do, except you are with the proverbial Midas touch, learning how to improve our chances of success becomes critical. If you have two different paths that you can take to achieve your goals, with one path giving you a 90% chance of success and the other about 20% of success. Which path would you follow? …

Detours are not meant to stop you.

Our life’s journey is not always going to be on a straight path. There will be roadblocks, speedbumps, and sometimes obstacles on our journey. To reach our desired destination, we must embrace detours. When you encounter a detour on a road trip, You don’t park or stop completely. You find an alternate route to get you to your destination. In life’s journey, a detour should not lead to a permanent stop in your track. It may sometimes mean that you need to recalibrate or recalculate your plans. It may sometimes require you to…

Sometimes, normal hinders innovation

Photo by Noah Windler on Unsplash

Normal is the way we do it. We have done it this way for many decades. There is absolutely no reason to make a change at this time. So says the conformist. What if normal is not producing the best result? What if we can do better than normal? What if going outside the normal creates more opportunity? Do we still embrace normal and stay stagnant? It used to be normal to wait patiently and watch ads you are not interested in while watching movies on cable TV. Now, with streaming services, you are free from…
