12/14/2018Daily Motivation - In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life, It Goes On
Letting Go, for the Life You Want - Living a happy life becomes very difficult, when you can’t let go of the past. The effects are far reaching, since it gets us caught up in a false state of mind, making it appear as if only the past mistakes seem to matter. Some of the effects include squashed dreams, stressful relationships, and a distorted view of yourself, which can make you feel sad and frustrated every day. The good thing is that you can easily heal the pain of the past, and let us deal with that right now, so you can live life in happier ways. - Let your emotions flow - One common mistake that we make, is ignoring our emotions. Learn to cry if necessary, forgive, and move on. Make your tears the seeds of a happier life. Feeling emotions will make it easier to understand why you were upset, and subsequently will let you move on with life.
12/13/2018Daily Motivation - I dedicate myself to causes that interest me
Important things that you need to consider for a well-rounded and joyful life - You may have heard it said before, "there is more to life than just work"! In society today, it really rings true, that we should stop and think about what we are doing with our life (I almost said, what we are doing to ourselves - and that would not be too far off the mark). Yes, we have to make a living. Yes, we want the life that we dream of. We want all the fancy things that the advertising merchants show us in living color every day. The online "gurus" take advantage of the fact that most of us crave for a better life, painting a rosy picture of instant riches. There is nothing wrong with wanting a better life. The question we have to ask ourselves is, at what cost? We need a balance in our lives. We have to dedicate part of our lives to interest that are dear to us.
12/12/2018Daily Motivation - It all starts with a goal
Setting Goals to Keep Yourself Motivated - Some of us look at the achievements of successful people in awe, and think that you have to be some kind of a god to elevate yourself to such high standards, but the truth behind their success is that they take all of the emotions that come their way, whether good or bad, and direct them towards achieving their goals. We are all human, and as humans we are prone to ups and downs. You will undoubtedly find setbacks along the way. This is just the way life is. What keeps successful people going, is that they react to these setbacks by picking themselves up, and keeping their minds focused. - Making Your Mind Work for You - Successful people always have "success" on their minds. This is why, wherever they are, or whatever they do, the one thing on their minds is how best to achieve the goals that they have set out for themselves.
12/11/2018Daily Motivation - I successfully manage challenges in life
As some of you may have found out already, life can be tough and at times it is hard to go on. It might just last for a short period of time, or seemingly forever. Do we quit? Do we give up? Definitely not! If you have a strong purpose in life, a big WHY you do what you do, you will never be defeated! Don't forget, and keep in mind, you are not the first person to face a challenge, and it also won't be the last time you will be challenged. Hope will carry you through, and hope will never let you give up. With hope in your heart you will see better days ahead, and look at the hardships you are facing, as a means to elevate yourself to a higher plateau. Look at a person enjoying a great mountaintop view, they did not fall up the mountain. They went through the challenges of climbing up the mountain, finally reaching the summit.
12/10/2018Daily Motivation - An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind
Revenge is very often promoted as a reprisal for a wrong that might have been carried out against you. However, the unfortunate thing in all this, is even if you have the last laugh, the pain, which you experience will still haunt you. Ideally, obtaining revenge, is definitely not the final answer to your predicament. You need a much better way of dealing with hardships that come your way, especially if it is through the vicious actions of other people. By considering to punish those who spitefully use, and abuse you, you will be carrying a heavy load that will eventually wear you down. The sad thing in all this, is the undeniable fact that those individuals, whose actions or words may have harmed you, never waste a second thinking about what you may be going through. Consequently, it is best if you also cease to think of them, and try to find another means of handling your problem.
12/9/2018Daily Motivation - I deserve to experience success
Factors that shows you deserve to experience success in your life - Despite all the attempts to achieve life and work balance, do you still feel out of balance? Or is your work overtaking your life? You need to understand that persistence is an essential part of success in your life. In fact, without it, you risk being defeated by challenges that seem too small to worry about. You may already know that an optimistic outlook in life is a vital part of persistence. Let's look at some of the indicators showing that you are on the way to experience success in your life. - Having adopted an optimistic, positive mental attitude - Adopting an optimistic, positive mental attitude will give you the capacity to absorb many of the bumps on the road of life. When you’re pursuing bigger, as well as more demanding goals, which can take you out of the comfort zone, the bumps usually get bigger, and sometimes a little frightening.
12/8/2018Daily Motivation - It is important to remind young people that peace is the only victory
Peace is a small word, it has however, a deeper meaning attached to it. Some people think of peace as simply the lack of disputes, wars, or disagreements. Well, this is one of the viewpoints on its meaning, and understandably, different people would have different interpretations of the word. However, the understanding of peace brings a meaning to the word that every individual knows, and applies that specific attitude to their life. It has been said that you should first find peace, and build your life around it. True to this statement, our accomplishments in life would be useless without peace, more specifically, the peace of mind. Peace is truly a magical word that points to a soul that is happy and satisfied, and not just the presence of quietness or calmness. When quiet or silence prevails, it could be for a night’s sleep, remembering someone, or even worse, mourning the death of someone.
12/7/2018Daily Motivation - It's very easy to be different, but very difficult to be better
Jonathan Ive once said "It's very easy to be different, but very difficult to be better." If you have ever thought what this quote is about, you may have been confused, just like me. The truth is many people get confused on its true meaning, and because of this they don't live their lives to the fullest. Being different is pretty easy. All you need is make a decision without giving it much thought. It doesn’t matter whether it affects anyone or not. For instance, today you may decide to wear red hair, just to look different, you will choose to speak in British English to standout from the crowd, or become a vegan in a family where everyone loves meat. As you might have noticed, your being unique doesn’t really affect the people around you. In fact, it doesn’t add any real value to your, or their life. I mean, anyone else can also choose to dye the hair different, fake a foreign accent, or avoid meat. Unfortunately, this is what we seem to care most about ... being different regardless of the zero-value.
12/6/2018Daily Motivation - I embrace my identity
Embrace your inner power - A lot of people in world today no longer believe in themselves, they have lost faith in their own abilities. They lack the drive to achieve great things in their lives. The constant disappointments they faced throughout their lives takes its toll. Most of them have lost touch with the power, that resides within, the power to drive them in the direction of their dreams. Instead, they now settled for mediocre achievements, and successes that fall short of their potential. They no longer think of the great things they are capable of achieving. Their limiting mentality becomes a barrier for them, falling short of the dreams they once held. They have fully convinced themselves that this is all there is for them. This could not be further from the truth.
12/5/2018Daily Motivation - If you can light the spark of curiosity in a child, they will learn without any further assistance
Can Curiosity Make Your Child A Better Learner - When it comes to venturing into the uncharted waters, children fare far better than adults. As a parent, teacher, guardian, or any other care giver, the question that we should all strive to settle is not whether or not our children will be adventurous, but rather whether their curiosity will get the better of them? As we may all be aware, there is no better way to help your child learn other than make him or her explore her own little kingdom to the fullest. The truest educator of every child is not the information we try to drive into their heads, even when they are least disposed to take it. The truest educator is experience, and there is no better way to help our kids leverage experience, than letting them wander to whatever places their wild dreams take them.
12/4/2018Daily Motivation - I seek exciting adventures
If you were to sit back and evaluate your life, would it be a predictable and a monotonous one, or one full of excitement and adventurers? Well, to live life to the fullest we need to explore the daring adventures, that we once dreamed of while growing up as kids. Pushing the limits of your comfort zone, and exploring the most exciting experiences available, is both exhilarating and mind blowing. Any accomplished corporate executive will tell you that it is not by default that they got to where they are, but it involved a journey of risk taking as they push themselves to the limits, both in life and in business. To make any dream, or a goal a reality, we have to overcome our perceived limits. Ever wondered what it took for the first human to conquer the highest peak on earth, Mount Everest, in 1953? Climbing to about 29,000 feet is an impressive and dangerous undertaking, it was thought of as an impossible task. The stakes were high considering the harsh environment that one had to endure.
12/3/2018Daily Motivation - To acquire knowledge one must study. To acquire wisdom one must observe
It is very surprising that in this day and age, despite the milestones we've made in the literature world, very few people read nowadays. And by reading, I mean 'real' studying, and not just scrolling web pages and social media feeds. In fact, a recent research study shows that only 12% of the present, modern-day population read for leisure, compared to the 45% that could be seen reading regularly ten or fifteen years ago. Bookshops and libraries have been neglected in favor of movies, Pay TV subscriptions, and hilarious social media posts. The result is a society that reads only for the purposes of exams. And even then it is not 'reading' but merely memorizing facts. If the current generation wants to scale greater heights than those reached by previous generations, then it's high time we dropped those smart phones, switched off those TVs, and picked up books to improve our lives instead.
12/2/2018Daily Motivation - I have courage in new situations
Finding Strength in New Challenges - Sometimes in life we find ourselves in unfamiliar territories, way out of our comfort zone. Some people totally panic when faced with new situations, afraid of how they will face the future, in circumstances they are unfamiliar with. We have to realize, that the only thing constant in life is change, and it will always be that way. It does not help to fear the future, or panic because suddenly the ground under our feet has shifted, as we are faced with the unknown. It is important to face every new situation with courage, because that is the only way you will find your path in a world, that is ever changing. Draw inspiration from the fact that you are entrusted with unique gifts, which will help you get through any situation you face in life.
12/1/2018Daily Motivation - The miserable have no other medicine, but only hope
Hope is undoubtedly one of the most important, but commonly overlooked components of success. There are many reasons behind this, the most notable being the fact that life at time can seem very difficult. I am sure you’ve heard the phrase, "life is hard" many times. Most importantly, this phrase manifests itself in many people's lives numerous times. There’s no question about it! Life can seem hard at times. There are many obstacles that manifest themselves in our lives, and just having goals may not be quite enough. You have to keep getting closer to your goals amidst all the uncertainties that life throws your way. Life is very unpredictable, and hope lets you to deal with life’s challenges with the right mindset. Hope also allows you to keep the eyes focused on the goal, and increases your chances to eventually accomplish your goals and dreams.
11/30/2018Daily Motivation - A friend is a gift you give to yourself
Investing in Your Friends is Good for Your Health and Happiness - If we were to list the most important things in our lives, our friends would likely be near the top, so we know that it is important to maintain our relationships with them. Having a good group of friends is not just fun, but it can significantly improve our quality of life. So let's treasure our friends for their benefit and yours! Many people who express regrets at the end of their life say that they wish they had kept in closer contact with old friends. While sometimes we drift apart from our friends, it has never been easier to keep in touch than it is now. We can call, text or email our friends, we can message them on Facebook or follow their Twitter feed. It only takes a minute to send a message to someone you care about, so try to do it every day!
11/29/2018Daily Motivation - Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius, it's better to be absolutely ridiculous, than absolutely boring
Life Lessons from Achilles Tomb - There is No Voodoo Arithmetic to Success - History remembers Achilles as an exceptional hero, who led the Greeks to triumph against unsurpassed odds during the Trojan War. A story is told of how the gods consulted with his soul shortly before his birth to map his life in advance. The gods gave him the choice of a long boring life on earth, or a short but highly adventurous existence. Achilles settled for the second option and subsequently charted the short course of his life with his brand of heroic exploits of legendary proportions. Without the spirit of adventure, humanity would hardly make any progress. Every human being is born with enormous abilities to achieve remarkable feats of success in the business of life. Unfortunately, many people tend to squander wonderful opportunities in life, because of yearning and striving for the mirage of perfection. Success is planned. There is no voodoo short cut to victory.
11/28/2018Daily Motivation - I am where I need to be
Did you ever feel that your life should be different in order to do accomplish something? Like you should have more finances in order to invest, or that you need to acquire more knowledge before you can influence the world around you? If you ever feel this way, you need to rethink again. The truth is that regardless of where you are, who you are, or what you have, you already have what it takes to achieve your life goals. Start from where you are - There is a reason why you are in that situation now. If you keep waiting for something to happen before you can start working on your dreams, you are wasting much more time. In fact, the things you are waiting for might never come, unless you bring them on yourself.
11/27/2018Daily Motivation - If Opportunity Doesn't Knock, Build A Door
Throughout your life, you may have heard people talk about waiting for opportunity to knock. How many times has opportunity knocked on your door? Are you still waiting? Let's start thinking outside the box. Instead of being a passive observer, waiting for someone to come along and give you something, why not take action, and create something new. A new idea. A new business. How do you build a door? How do you create your opportunity? You may be building your door, creating your opportunity, by seeing a need that is not being filled by anyone at this time, and you go out and fill it. You may see existing ideas, and improve on them.
11/26/2018Daily Motivation - Everything is clearer when you are in love
When it comes to human emotions, nothing beats the feeling of falling in love. If you are in love, you look at the world around you in a very positive and optimistic way. Your love for someone, or something, encourages you to be the best that you can be. In other words, love is what's behind passion and inspiration. Just the mere sight of the person you adore makes your heart beat faster, and your brain work more efficiently. Even if you are going through something, love will be there to lighten the burden, and carry you through. In other words, you need love to fully enjoy life. Love makes everything better.
11/25/2018Daily Motivation - I see my goals with clarity
Tips on How To View Your Goals With Clarity - Everybody wants to be successful in life. However, success does not come on a silver platter. It is also difficult to inherit success. To be successful in life, we have to have a dream. A dream strong enough to give us wings, the desire to achieve our dream. It starts with setting goals. The following are some tips you can use in order to see your goals with more clarity - 1. Define your goals - 2. Set realistic goals - 3. Set a time line - 4. Ensure that your goals are measurable.
11/24/2018Daily Motivation - You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough
Living right every day is experiencing life more fully - Life is a collection of single days, one after the other. Each day, the sun rises and gives us an opportunity to live our life as we desire. The sun then sets in the evening, marking the end of that life-shaping opportunity. Living right is making sure we get the best out of each day. We need to live each day, and not survive through it. Each day is an extraordinary gift to embrace. It does not matter how yesterday or any other day was. Today is the best day ever. Many a times we worry so much about our tomorrow. Little do we know that our tomorrow will be the best day of our lives, IF we live today to the fullest. Below are a few things to do to ensure you live right each day.
11/23/2018Daily Motivation - I Choose To Live Life Heroically
We were never promised to live our life on a bed of roses. As you know, even roses have thorns. At many points in our life, we will encounter numerous challenges and hardships, many of which may even threaten to overwhelm us. As an example, a loss of a loved one, a heartbreaking divorce, or perhaps a loss of a promising job. All these circumstances can put us into a state, where there is nothing more to hope for in life, other than more disappointments. However, it does not have to be that way. We can draw on our inner power and put our life back on a positive track. By choosing to live heroically, you will essentially place yourself on the highroad of life, looking at setbacks and challenges you encounter as opportunities. There is always light at the end of a long, dark tunnel, that shines the light on the opportunities that lay before you.
11/22/2018Daily Motivation - Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all
Daring to Live a Bold Life - Most of us already know that there is no security in life. So why not be adventurous and dare to go after your goals and dreams. Step out into life and dare to live the life that you always dreamed of. Since there is no security in life, the fearful people, trying to avoid any unpleasant situations, are just as susceptible to danger, as the adventurous person. You should therefore be bold and take any step you think necessary to make your life better. Fear does not protect you from anything. Having faith that things will work out the way you want them to be, will help you take that first step toward your dream. Faith in your own ability, and the belief in your dream, give you the desire to overcome any fear that you might have.
11/21/2018Daily Motivation - I follow my instincts
Did you ever get that tingle, the tiny voice in your head telling you to do, or not do something? Well, that weird urge, or the gut feeling that you have, is your instinct. A lot of people say, "I saw it coming", even though the event didn’t seem predictable. You guessed it, this is the instinct again, giving us a hint of what is about to happen. The thing is, most people just can’t explain how this works, and ignore it! Tap into your instinct - Becoming aware of our thoughts is a good start. I had an experience last year, I was cutting tomatoes for lunch with a sharp knife. A thought flashed across my mind, blood shooting out of my fingers. Did I stop cutting? Unfortunately not, because a few seconds later I had a deep cut in my finger.
11/20/2018Daily Motivation - If you don't stand for something, you will fall for anything
When you believe in something, stand up for it, even if everyone else is sitting, otherwise, and you may not even realize it, you will be falling for anything. Every time you see something inappropriate, or morally wrong happening around you, and you think it is none of your business, it makes you a part of the "crime". Rather than being a silent spectator, stand up for what is right, for what you believe in. Taking a stand will only make you stronger, more confident and independent of other people's opinions. Act, and do the right thing, because it is your responsibility. Speak out, before it "kills" you - It is said, "We only regret the chances that we didn't take". If you believe in something, but are afraid to speak out, it won't let you sleep. Your mind will replay the event continuously, and it will affect your confidence, and it may start eating you inside.
11/19/2018Daily Motivation - Each Day I Strive To BE ME
I am where I need to be - It is unfortunate that we live in the world that has set expectations of who, and what we should be. We see it all around us. The pressure comes from friends, family, and our peers. The media dictates what we should wear, which fashion trend to follow, what to eat, what to study, and what beliefs we should have, among other things. The political correctness has run amok, it is almost impossible to express ourselves the way we want. Most of the time, we are left with no room to be ourselves, which will be a big hindrance in reaching our potential, and reaching our destiny. It is not easy to be YOU in a world that is constantly pushing us to be different. We are forced to forgo so much about ourself, that in the end, we realize that we have been living a lie, and the person we present to the world, is far from the person we are on the inside.
11/18/2018Daily Motivation - Indulging my curiosity brings new dimension to my life
Curiosity - The Key to an Extraordinary Life - Curiosity is a quality in us that is a virtual key to unlock an extraordinary life. Do you often ponder and question? Are you curious about things? Life is constantly changing, and every single moment is different from the next. So there is plenty to be curious about. Curiosity, or the joy of exploration, is not just for children. Curiosity is that hidden force that can add a new dimension in your life. There are always things that are new to us, even if they have been know by others for quite some time. Staying wide-eyed about the world around us, makes life more fun, exciting, and interesting.
11/17/2018Daily Motivation - Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings
How lack of ambition can prevent you from moving forward even if you're intelligent - Being gifted with an exceptional mind can give you many advantages in life. It positions you in such a way to have influence in your community, to be recognized for your intelligence. It allows you to navigate through difficult situations. But what many people fail to realize is that while being a highly intelligent person is clearly a blessing, it can also be a curse in disguise. The trap that a lot intelligent people tend to fall into is having a lack of ambition. As much as the gift of intelligence has given them, the lack of ambition takes away. Fortunately, just by realizing this, things can be changed for the better!
11/16/2018Daily Motivation - I let go of pain and anger
Life will bring us many situations that affect our emotions. We sometimes are exposed to people who anger us, or even cause us pain. Sometimes they may even get us to a point where we just want to give up. But what do we gain by being so angry and in pain? The truth is that these things add absolutely no value to our life. In fact, they affect our happiness, and may also distract us from realizing our goals and dreams. If we want to really enjoy our life, we have to let go of pain and anger. Shake off the negative energies - Anger and pain are negative energies that can lead to many unpleasant situations. When we are angry, we are blocking our positive thoughts and emotions, and we can get to a point where things like revenge, or even something worse, can pop into our minds. Unless we control situations like this our thoughts may spiral to a point when we start experiencing excessive stress.
11/15/2018Daily Motivation - If you're going through hell keep going
The Biggest Difference Between Successful and Unsuccessful People - Did you ever wonder how some people just never seem to get anywhere in life, whereas others seem to succeed no matter what? I am sure you answered 'yes' to that question, as nearly all of us have seen both scenarios, at some point in our lives. This may come as a big surprise, but unsuccessful people are born with just as much potential as successful people. But this brings up the question, why do some succeed and others don't? People that are extremely successful in life are born with no more innate capabilities than the most unsuccessful people. One of the things that make people a success is the fact that they do not float through life, they make decisions, and they make wise decisions, based on their goals in life.
11/14/2018Daily Motivation - I am a positive leader
The Power of a Positive Mental Attitude - It is a fact that a positive mental attitude will improve our outlook in life. Instead of seeing dark clouds when we face a challenge, we tend to see opportunities in those challenges. Life is not always a bed of roses, but as we work through our challenges, a positive mental attitude allows us to smell the scent of the roses, even though we may not see them. Here are some tips on how we can develop a Positive Mental Attitude that helps us through the ups and down of life.
11/13/2018Daily Motivation - You miss 100 percent of the shots you don't take
Taking Risks, and How to Win, even if you Lose - Sometimes in life we want something so bad that we feel like we couldn't cope with trying to get it, and failing. Fear of failure is a common way of self-sabotage that everybody had to deal with at one time or another. Can anybody influence, or even predict, how something is going to turn out if they have no control over it? You can drop a pencil and know that it will fall to the floor, but how will you know, for instance, if your new home business is going to work out for you, if you don't give it your best to succeed? Legendary ice hockey player Wayne Gretzky summed it up well, when he said that, "You miss 100 percent of the shots you don't take". The illusion, or the false sense of hope you get, from not acting and taking a risk, will only transform into guilt once you see that opportunity slip away from you.
11/12/2018Daily Motivation - I take time for relaxation
Taking Time for Relaxation is Important - Are you pressed for time? Having problems managing stress? Feeling like you need to work harder? Relax, take it easy. Life isn't suppose to be stressful. Calm down. Take a deep breath, and exhale slowly. Feel the relief? Taking time for a proper rest and relaxation is a key factor to maintaining mental health. Managing fatigue is important. Our body is not a robot, we need to take care of ourselves, and resting from time to time ensures that we stay in optimal condition. Resting and relaxation is an important part of it. So what will happen if we don't relax from time to time? Your stress will accumulate and affect your daily life. The more stressed you are the more you will keep stressing. Before long you will keep stressing about minor things. Your moods will change and people will start to avoid you. Your social life will suffer.
11/11/2018Daily Motivation - If you can't outplay them, outwork them
Get up and fight! The Will and the power to defeat the odds - Legendary golf star Ben Hogan once said, in reply to the question of how he managed to accomplish so much, "If you can't outplay them, outwork them". It is easy to be confident about your skills, but then loose heart, and start to doubt yourself, once you face the competition. The reality is that no matter how good anybody is, there will always be someone better, faster, stronger, or more skillful. Talent is never a sure ticket to victory, unless we put in the effort, the work to achieve your goals and dreams. If there is something true in this world, it is that we must fight for what we love. In todays society, with all its comforts and distractions, it always seems to offer us plenty of excuses for our personal failures. Politics, social situations, family issues, and all kinds of other factors that seem to play against us.
11/10/2018Daily Motivation - Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage
When we think about love, we immediately think about romantic love. But there is love between parents and children, between siblings, relatives and friends. Then of course there is the love that binds all of mankind. The love that we receive from others is what helps us get through tough times. When someone loves you no matter what, you gain strength, and you feel comforted. The love we receive makes us feel supported and uplifted, it instills a sense of security, that allows us to stand up to fear of failure, or any rejection. To put it in plain English, "I love you, I got your back!" You feel the love and support, which gives you strength. On the other hand there is the love that we are prepared to give to others. While the love from others provides us with inner strength, the love we pass on to others, helps us derive courage in our actions and thoughts.
11/9/2018Daily Motivation - Improvement begins with I
Have you ever thought of how you can improve your life? What is the best way to improve? What areas of your life need improvements? What exactly do you have to do? These are some of the questions you have to ask yourself, before you think of making changes in your life. Typically, improvement is a change that is believed to have a certain outcomes and directions. It is only achieved by providing significant efforts. You must be actively involved if you want to improve. That is the "I" in Improvement. There is no magic here, examining, planning and action! Improvement is a continuous process, starting with taking stock of where your life is at. Then ask yourself the question, where and what do you want to improve? Remember, if you do not put in an effort, there will not be any advancement, and your life will stagnate.
11/8/2018Daily Motivation - I deserve to be happy and successful
Happiness is our birthright - As a living, breathing, loving, feeling, thinking, aging human being, our most basic purpose is to thrive. Happiness is simple. All we have to do is look inside and find that, beneath any feelings of sadness or anger or low self-worth, there is a growing sensation of happiness, love, forgiveness, joy, elation, contentedness, and gratitude for life. Sometimes it takes courage to be happy. In those moments, it might be hard to remember what happiness feels like. It is very important during those times to remember that we deserve to be happy. We don't ever need to prove your worthiness to be happy. You don't need to be anyone other than who you are, in order to be happy. You don't need to earn happiness. You deserve to feel happiness simply by virtue of being an alive human being.
11/7/2018Daily Motivation - If my life is going to mean anything, I have to live it myself
"If my life is going to mean anything, I have to live it myself" is a true indicator of a person seeking to live a life of purpose and meaning. It simply drives home the time-tested truth, that no one can ever live your life for you. It does not matter how accomplished your parents, mentors, or friends are, you have to do your own growing and living. You have to find the meaning and purpose of life by yourself. No one else has the capacity to do that for you. Most people live their lives without understanding the purpose of being alive. As Socrates said, their lives are unexamined. They hardly stop to think where they have come from, where they are and where they are headed. A meaningful life involves following your passion and keeping your eye on the finish line. It means setting specific goals and aligning them with your life's purpose.
11/6/2018Daily Motivation - I anticipate challenges and opportunities
If one door closes ... Open the next one! - They say that there are two kinds of people in the world, those who see a glass of water as half full, and those who see a glass of water as half empty. A large number of people tend to believe that our lives are, in part, determined by fate, and that we can't escape some of our circumstances. If we float through life, like most people do, I could even agree. But the truth is that even the worst setbacks will bring us new opportunities that we can benefit from. You may have noticed already that life is a succession of challenges that we must overcome. However, they never become a chore until you loose focus on our dreams and goals. Getting a promotion may bring more responsibilities, but it will also bring a better salary, and an increase in your reputation, as an example.
11/5/2018Daily Motivation - I have no special talent. I'm only passionately curious
Talent vs curiosity - Albert Einstein never considered himself special, or a genius, as some people call him. Yet he made a number of brilliant discoveries. This should be inspiring to all of us, considering everyone is curious to some extent. And the only thing that makes some people special, is within all of us. You don’t need any special talent to be curious. All you need to do is develop a passion around that one thing you are super-curious about. Contrary to what most people believe, talent only has a small role to play in determining whether or not we are going to be successful. Some great talents live up to the lofty expectations, while others give up along the way, because they weren’t passionate enough to follow their dream.
11/4/2018Daily Motivation - I Enjoy Being Unique
If you are like most people, then you probably care about what people say or think about you. But why would you think that way? Consider the fact that nobody acts like you do, thinks like you, or even has the skills and talents you have? Let's be clear about this, you are special, gifted and unique in your own right. Think of it this way, your looks, body appearance and even thumb prints are different from anyone else’s. Do you want to live a fulfilling life? Then dare to be different in everything you set out to do, and also celebrate the uniqueness that defines your character. Just like a portrait painted by an artist, the experiences that have shaped you throughout your life regardless of how long or short, will never be identical to any other. However, there may be some similarities here and there, but the portrait of you life has different paint combinations and brush strokes.
11/3/2018Daily Motivation - Happiness often sneaks in through a door you didn't know you left open
Happiness is a choice! I wonder how many people would realize that? We were born into this world being happy. Just watch babies and younger children, they are happy and eager to explore the world. Everybody would agree that we all would love to be happy with our families, finances, health, relationships and everything that surrounds us. Why aren't we? The door to happiness is always open. When our lives run smoothly, we are happy. But watch what happens when our life takes an abrupt turn. What happens to our happiness? Does this mean despair? No. We become negative over what happened, we feel distracted, depressed and frustrated, but we should never give up.
11/2/2018Daily Motivation - If we have no peace it is because we have forgotten we belong to each other
LOVE IS PEACE - There is one big problem with humanity. And yes, I am talking about you, me, and everybody who considers themselves part of the human race. The majority of us human creatures lack empathy. We have stopped caring for each other, in order to get ahead of the next guy, to boast, hey I am better than you guys. But most of the time we forget that being more skillful, or more successful does not mean being superior to anybody. Never forget, we are all the same, and we should love everyone around us as an equal. Love and Empathy are the real measures of greatness, not power. We want no harm to be done to us, but do not care about others? Where is the golden rule, when we need it. For what purpose do we want to gain power and create an illusive environment around us, at the expense of others that are in the way?
11/1/2018Daily Motivation - I trust in the process of life
Everything Comes At It's Own Time - Life is a process, or a journey if you like. A baby will be born, crawl, talk, take the first steps up until he or she turns into a grown adult. Most people find themselves struggling in life and unhappy because they tried to rush it. It is necessary that we appreciate every stage of life and enjoy every little thing that comes with it until we outgrow it. Enjoy your life when young, travel the world, meet new people and pursue different interests as you try to find your footing. Do not be uptight, treating life like a rehearsal because then you will miss out on the fun part of it.
10/31/2018Daily Motivation - If it is still in your mind, it's worth taking a risk
Take the Risk and Pursue Your Dreams - Like a lot of people we choose to follow a certain path in life, but along the way we give up. Maybe because of new interests, or changed priorities, or unforeseeable circumstances. But there are some desires and dreams that just don't go away, however much we try to ignore or run away from them. Some of these dreams could be something like pursuing a different career path, trying a new venture, or going after the person we are attracted to. If you find that such thoughts are still in your mind several months, or even years down the road, then it might be worth taking the risk, and pursuing those desires.
10/30/2018Daily Motivation - I calmly release my stress into the wind
Techniques Of Reducing Stress - What is stress? "Stress is a state of mental or emotional strain or tension resulting from adverse or very demanding circumstances." Stress can basically be defined as the response we have when facing circumstances that force us to act, change, or adjust in some way to keep things balanced. Stress can be caused by both good and bad experiences. Some of them make us happy while others leave us frustrated. Stress can be beneficial when it is in the right dose. However, it can be very detrimental when it becomes excessive, and lasting for a period of time. It can harm our health, happiness, performance, and our relationships.
10/29/2018Daily Motivation - If you tell the truth you don't have to remember anything
The Art of Real Honesty - Truth! A five letter word that we wish would make the world run! A clear word that wins you respect, trust, and favor. A tiny word that brings to you friends that are worthy of your character and your direction in life. Truth is a virtue that will help you live a stress free life, with no fear of repercussions. Many people have had to live a life of mastering lies upon lies, in order to escape the disgrace of being found out. Yes, some may have succeeded at it, and still survived up till now, but they live in constant fear of what might happen to them the next day, or hour or minute. People who tell lies put a huge burden on their backs, and have to twist words and use tricks in order to get through the day.
10/28/2018Daily Motivation - I fear the day that technology will surpass our human interaction. The world will have a generation of idiots
The Greatness of Human Interaction - It is impossible to deny how the new technology has literally transformed the way the human race lives and communicates. Right now, as long as we have an online connection or a smart phone, anyone can instantly reach another person around the globe, thanks to the various social media platforms. All these electronic approaches of interaction have different ways to facilitate effective communication. However, along with the ease of communicating comes the immense threat to our personal human interaction.
10/27/2018Daily Motivation - I feel that luck is preparation meets opportunity
Preparation and Opportunity - With all the twists and turns on life’s highway, being prepared can become a daunting task when we don’t know what’s waiting for us just around the next bend in the road. Oftentimes, preparation is a benefit we gain through living, loosing, and learning what it takes, not only to survive, but to succeed. We learn what unique attributes we as individuals posses, that will keep us moving forward, when our feet get weary and the road gets long. These trials in life are an essential opportunity to get to know ourselves, our talents, and our strengths a little bit better with every win or loss. They give us the personal preparation and know-how to succeed when faced with new trials in the future. After all, it’s only after we have tasted defeat that we know what it takes to win.
10/26/2018Daily Motivation - I strive to be self-disciplined
Self-Discipline is Crucial to Success in life - When we were younger, our parents were always on hand to keep us in line, when we did something wrong. In a way, because of our very nature as children, we got used to acting properly around them, but being total brats when they were not around. Some will say that it is a stage that everyone goes through. That is true, however, when we grow older, will we still wait for someone to watch over us, in order to act properly? Growing up means taking responsibility for our behavior, and our life. Self discipline is very important in leading a successful life.
10/25/2018Daily Motivation - I am excited about my life
4 Tips To Spark Excitement In Your Life and Live It To The Fullest - "You live only once, but if you do it right, once is enough." - Mae West - Most of us believe that we only have one life. And that life is short. We can either live it, or waste it on things that do not matter. At the end of our life, we never regret not making enough money or achieving more success. But we will always regret not having lived the life the way we always wanted. And the truth is, we never know when the end will come. So it is better to live our life today. Don't postpone it for tomorrow. Following are tips to start living, and put new excitement into your life right now.
10/24/2018Daily Motivation - I am the greatest; I said that even before I knew I was
Like many people, you might be confused when you read, "I am the greatest; I said that even before I knew I was". I mean, how can you possibly be great, before you even achieved anything? To a lot of people, it may appear like wishful thinking, or too bold of an attitude, or even arrogant. But the truth is that the quote is actually true. Unfortunately, many are yet to understand it. You see, it is all about positive thinking. Every human being will go through ups and downs in life, twists and turns, and bumps on the road. There will be times when nothing seems to work. And yes, you will have to deal with imbalances in your body, mind, and soul. But by thinking positively, you draw your inner energy that inspires you to move on, no matter what the challenges are.
10/23/2018Daily Motivation - Your philosophy of life is evident in your actions
Our daily actions always show a direct link to our life's philosophy, and our commitment to a better and more meaningful life. Our philosophy is a vision of our life, and our life purpose. Everything we do should be based on our purpose, if we want to be true to ourselves. Most people follow the flavor of the day. They take their lead from what is happening around them, the movies they watch, the soap operas on television, with a sprinkle of the evening news. What is your life purpose? How many people do you know, who actually sat down to think about their life, and the purpose they want their life to reflect?
10/22/2018Daily Motivation - I am beautiful inside and out
As much as we would like to appear beautiful and attractive to the people that we encounter on a daily basis, we should always work at improving our inner beauty. How beautiful we are on the inside depends on the strength of our character, and the principles we build our lives on. People might devalue us, or be attracted to us, based on our outer beauty and our appearance. They will always value us for our characters and the principles that we stand for. Every individual is unique, and wonderfully made. We possess unique attributes and personalities that no one else among the seven billion people across our planet has. This fact alone should make us stand tall and be proud, because we are one-of-a-kind.
10/21/2018Daily Motivation - Formal education will make you a living. Self education will make you a fortune
The Master Key To All Round Success - Self Education - Let me ask you, would you rather be a person with seven diplomas, or more, and a relatively low wage job, with a jerk for a boss, or would you fancy to be a self-made millionaire, who carves the road to his own destiny, unhinged from the mediocrity of formal education? Don't get me wrong, highly educated people might be able to afford a decent meal at a posh restaurant, but wouldn’t you rather own the entire restaurant? The fine line between these two scenarios is only separated by countless years in a mundane education system, and getting a head start in life early on.
10/20/2018Daily Motivation - I accept myself wholly and completely
Accepting yourself wholly and completely entails valuing every part of yourself unconditionally. You have to be able to value both the good parts, and those parts that you think need to be strengthened. Unfortunately for many people, self-acceptance is a hard thing to do, especially when they look at the mistakes they make. But the good news is that self-acceptance is something that can be nurtured. It is a process that starts with acknowledging the judgments you usually make about yourself, and then being able to soften those judgments. We have to recognize that this process is a skill that you can practice, as opposed to being an inborn trait, that you either have or do not have.
10/19/2018Daily Motivation - Everything you can imagine is real
The power of imagination - The power to imagine is an inherent gift within every person. Each one of us can imagine. All great paintings, buildings, cars, songs, or movies begun with an image in somebody's mind. The ability to create something in our minds is one of the most powerful tools man has been given. Think about a world where there is no imagination! What a dull world that would be. People sometimes call dreams imaginations. And rightly so. Dream, imagine, the kind of life you want to live, and the world you want to belong to. Then make all your dreams come true.
10/18/2018Daily Motivation - Each and every day I feel fulfilled and joyful
How to Feel Fulfilled and Joyful Every Day - Feeling fulfilled and joyful each day is something that everyone throughout the world regardless of their background yearns to achieve. Call it bliss, joy, happiness, delight, ecstasy, elation, euphoria, the name does not matter, it is THE feeling we want to experience. In achieving the highest fulfillment, we first need to ask ourselves these questions: - What makes me joyful now? - How fulfilled am I on a daily basis? - What can I do to increase the feeling? - How do I react to negative happenings?
10/17/2018Daily Motivation - I check my pulse and if I can find it, I know I've got a chance
Finding Hope Even When The Odds Are Against Us - Sometimes in life we get knocked down by tragedies or adverse circumstances. The normal reaction for most people is usually to give up, viewing their setbacks as the final straw. Some people choose to focus on the bad things rather than finding hope in the unlikeliest of situations to overcome setbacks. Challenges will always be with us, because I doubt that there is anyone in the entire universe who has a perfect life. Even if we are rich in material wealth, there is always the possibility that we can still suffer physical and emotional pain, and in some cases money will not even be the solution to those challenges.
10/16/2018Daily Motivation - Each day I strive to learn something new
Life is constantly changing, and different aspects of our daily routine change with it. Things related to our professional lives and even our hobbies are affected by those changes. Unfortunately, we may not even be aware of the changes that are taking place. There is a thin line between success and failure and learning something new on a daily basis can essentially offer new possibilities through simply altering how we view things. It need not be anything overwhelming, but just a new bit of small, but interesting information that could change our life forever.
10/15/2018Daily Motivation - Empty pockets never held anyone back. Only empty heads & empty hearts can do that
Tips To Practice Positive Thinking - Early in life children have great aspirations. They want to emulate mom or dad, and become like them. Some want to be fire fighters, astronauts, or movie stars. Growing older, reality sets in. Or perhaps I should say conditioning sets in, from parents, schooling, church, and, not to forget, the media. They learn how to be victims of their circumstances. Little do they know that circumstances should never be a hindrance toward achieving our goals in life. Challenges are part of life. It is stuff that we can deal with as it comes up. It is no refection on who we are.
10/14/2018Daily Motivation - Happiness depends upon ourselves
Aristotle, the great thinker of the past, believed that the purpose of our being is to find happiness. He believed that the goal of life is to be happy, and this happiness depends entirely on the individual. It is never about what happens to us, or the events around us. We are responsible for our happiness. It is always a choice that we make. The challenges in our lives should never be a hindrance to our happiness. When we make the decision to be happy, the universe will conspire and help us to experience that joy. It should always be our goal in life to find the happiness within ourselves, and never in the events of our lives. We wish our lives away when we get involved in linking our happiness to different stages in our lives.
10/13/2018Daily Motivation - Being successful is my natural state
Does Success Come Naturally? - Ever taken the time thinking about how your subconscious mind manifests itself in your daily life? All goals you want to achieve, start as an idea. Having positive thoughts and visualization prepares your mind to turn the goals to a successful conclusion. Sometimes you may wonder why other people have success in life, while you fail in some of your undertakings. Does this mean that you are cursed? No one is cursed, unless you call "stinking thinking" a curse. I am talking about a negative mindset, because everything starts in your mind.
10/12/2018Daily Motivation - Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds
What is one of the most common themes in the lives of all of the great individuals in the human history? No matter when these extraordinary people lived, almost all of them had a hard time presenting their innovative ideas to the people around them. This includes artists, forward-thinking leaders, scientist and pretty well everyone else, who ever dreamt of a better world, and had the desire to make these dreams come true. Almost all of these people experienced resentment and rejections from many others who wanted to hold onto the status quo. This has been true since before the dawn of civilization, and it is still true today.
10/11/2018Daily Motivation - For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness
Tips On How To Manage Your Anger - There are many encounters in our daily lives. Some of them make us happy and others leave us with frustrations, or even outright anger. Living a life full of anger is a waste of our own time and energy, that would be better spent on something more productive. Prolonged anger can be very detrimental to our health. How can we avoid anger, or deal with it?. The following tips will help us tame our anger, so we remain happy most of the time.
10/10/2018Daily Motivation - Having Less Than I Need Drives Me To Work Harder
I consider myself lucky because I know the life I want to live, and the kind of life I want to wake up to on a daily basis. I look at different neighborhoods as a way of reminding myself what is possible if I work a little harder. I have a list of everything I want to achieve in life, and this has become my daily motivation. Every minute when I feel less motivated, all I need to do is look at that list, and visualize the fulfillment my dreams.
10/9/2018Daily Motivation - Everything is Possible - Think Possibilities
We are the sculptors of our destiny. We have the ability to drive our future into any direction we desire, but often we give up on our dreams for fear of failure, and fear of the unknown. But you can achieve anything you desire by having the right mindset and a strong will to pursue it. Some of the greatest individuals, past or present, neither had an exemplary childhood, nor did they attend the best colleges or universities in the world. They have one thing in common though, a commitment to their dreams.
10/8/2018Daily Motivation - Even If You Fall On Your Face, You're Still Moving Forward
One of the most common attributes that successful people share in common, is the virtue of perseverance. If you are going to look into the lives of high-achieving people, you will realize that they had to go through a lot of failures before they gained their current status. What does this teach us? Well, first of all, falling flat on your face doesn't mean it's the end of everything. The road towards success is filled with potholes and roadblocks. What you need to do is keep on moving forward, no matter what. Always keep in mind that if you fall, you can still get up and continue your journey.
10/7/2018Daily Motivation - Good things happen to me every day
In life, there are times when negativity seems to surround us, smothering our dreams and destroying our hope. But if we become more observant, we will see that the present moment is filled with a lot of beauty. We can either allow this negativity to saturate us, and hold us back, or we can let our positive attitude propel us forward. When we allow negativity to suffocate our dreams, we start to accept it as a way of life. It is very true that we cannot control what happens to us, but we certainly can control how you react to it.
10/6/2018Daily Motivation - He who has a why to live can bear almost any how
Tips On How To Find Your Life's Purpose - We face many challenges in our lives every day. Most of them are minor, but major challenges can make us feel like giving up. At a time like this, we are really tested, and can show what we are made of. People with a strong purpose in life have a much better chance to get through rough spots in their lives. When we have developed a purpose in our life, we are less likely to feel discouraged. We will remain optimistic, and stay focused on life. What is your purpose in life? If you are still working on finding your purpose, here are a few points that may help you...
10/5/2018Daily Motivation - Generosity is giving more than you can, and pride is taking less than you need
Go out of your way give to those in need - The world we are living in today is full of self-centered people. Everything that people are doing is aimed at benefiting themselves alone. Sometimes it seems that we live in a dog-eat-dog world. Is this the way we were meant to live? The world can be a better place if we all became a little more generous. By going out of our way to help our friends or neighbors in whatever they need, we will do more for them than we can ever imagine. Good deeds never go unrewarded, whatever good we do to others, comes back to us tenfold or more.
10/4/2018Daily Motivation - Enthusiasm permeates whatever I do
To be enthusiastic means we are inspired by a cause, which could be our dreams, or our purpose in life. Enthusiasm is an intense enjoyment of what we do. When we have enthusiasm for our goals and dreams, we will do anything to make it happen. If we lack some skills that are required, we show a willingness to learn, and want to become the best at what we do. Work will not feel like work at all. It becomes a pleasure to pursue our objectives, because we love what we do. With enthusiasm we tackle every aspect of our endeavor, and we do it with excellence. Our enthusiasm will be visible to everybody around us. They will wonder what we are up to.
10/3/2018Daily Motivation - Common Sense Is not So Common
What is common sense? Somebody once told me that common sense is what the general population on this planet lacks. Food for thought! Talking about food. Would you blame obesity, which is rampant today, on the fast food industry? Or would the answer be that people should know that fatty foods make them fat? The essence of common sense is in those questions. The best definition I found was on Wikipedia, "Common sense is a basic ability to perceive, understand, and judge things, which is shared by ("common to") nearly all people and can reasonably be expected of nearly all people without any need for debate."
10/2/2018Daily Motivation - Remember fear doesn't exist anywhere except in the mind
7 Ways to Overcome Fear and Improve Your Life - When fear takes over our lives, it expresses in all kind of different forms, gloom, depression, despair, and discouragement, among others. Where do we find the fear? Fear is a mental habit, that only resides in our minds. It simply does not exist anywhere else. Fear enters our mind when we start having negative thoughts, and negative feelings. And these thoughts translate into negative expectations.
10/1/2018Daily Motivation - Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school
The Real Meaning of Education - Education is very important in our development as a person. But do all of us know what education really means? When we were kids, we probably heard countless warnings for us to study hard. But when parents are asked why education is important, most of them will say it is for us to be able to get a good job. But is the reason for us to get a good job the real purpose of education? Do we really go to school just to be able to survive?
9/30/2018Daily Motivation - Don't re-open old wounds in order to examine their origins. Leave them healed
Healing on physical terms refers to the body's recovery, whether towards regaining health or that of a wound. On the other hand, it can also refer to something more of a deep emotional wound, which almost everyone knows, that the pain due to an injury or cut is nothing compared this miserable feeling of an emotional wound! Despite this truth, why do people tend to hang on to the past, rummaging through bad experiences, and even attempt to re-open old wounds? What's past is past. It is gone. We cannot change it.
9/29/2018Daily Motivation - Every obnoxious act is a cry for help
Ever noticed how kids throw tantrums when things don't go their way? Did you know that adults behave the same way, except they use a different technique. If you live with an obnoxious person, you know what I am talking about? Or perhaps your boss exhibit obnoxious behavior occasionally? It can be a nasty affair, so I am suggesting to add a little humor to the situation. Of course, I do not mean that literally, but create a little humor in your mind to make it easier to deal with. Imagine the person with a silly cartoon face, or even in diapers. It might also help to dilute the nasty things that might be said. After all they are the ones with the problem, not you.
9/28/2018Daily Motivation - Demonstrating self reliance increases my confidence
Self-reliance and self-confidence are two words very closely related, whereby one can’t do without the other. In other words self-reliance and self-confidence are dependent qualities. Let's define each one: SELF-RELIANCE - Self-reliance means depending on our own inner strength, abilities, power and resources to overcome the daily challenges. SELF-CONFIDENCE - Self-confidence on the other hand is trusting in our own abilities and judgement. These two qualities are very important in our self-improvement.
9/26/2018Daily Motivation - Do what you want with what you have where you are
Work With What You Have To achieve Great Results - Many times people harbor dreams of success and a good life but never really take realistic steps towards achieving them. The main excuse is that they lack the resources, and are waiting for the right time to pursue their dreams. There is never a right time to chase your dreams, because time waits for no man. Many people around the world today have enormous wealth, and successful businesses, not because they inherited some big chunk of money, but because they had the drive to start with whatever little resources they had at the time.
9/25/2018Daily Motivation - Consistency The Key To Success
When a person lacks the natural talent or ability for something, the best way to attain success is through consistent effort and practice. A less gifted footballer, for instance, can do well on the field in a competitive match, even better than the more talented individuals, because of consistent practice. The same player will be selected again and again because of the consistent performances, while others may have one great game, but are relegated to the bench, because of inconsistent efforts, in-spite of their natural talent.
9/25/2018Daily Motivation - Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality
Learn about the true power of commitment - Do you know the real power of commitment? If there is no commitment, there are only hopes and promises, and we will not transform our hopes and promises into reality. When we are committed, our words not only become the driving force of your actions, but also create a high degree of personal discipline. The real power of commitment is huge. It focuses our mind on the one thing that becomes our purpose in life.
9/24/2018Daily Motivation - Close some doors. Not because of pride, incapacity or arrogance. But simply because they no longer lead somewhere
Adopting to Change in Life - Life is like a moving wind, ever changing. The life we live today differs from the life we lived yesterday, and of that we will live tomorrow. But what happens when we keep looking back, and keep our eyes and minds on yesterday’s successes and failures? Most likely our tomorrows will lose some meaning, and the happiness we could enjoy today is diminished by looking back. Do yesterday’s worries and disappointments have any role to play today or in our tomorrow? Nothing more than a lesson learned.
9/23/2018Daily Motivation - By failing to prepare you are preparing to fail
The key to success is in planning - When we see successful people in life, either in terms of financial status or in a business career, we admire them for the success they have achieved. We envision of having the same type of success for ourselves, with a sense of fulfillment, and a life lived on purpose. Seeing the appearances of success, we must not forget that success does not come by chance. It is a deliberate, and well planned out journey with a desired end objective. By planning for success, we design a well defined path, complete with goals, toward our desired achievements.
9/22/2018Daily Motivation - By being yourself, you put something wonderful in the world that was not there before
Let us talk about one of the things that holds the key to transforming yourself and the world around you ... being yourself. Many people lack self-esteem, and as a result, they do not lead the satisfying lives that they really want. They also find it difficult to help or influence others. If that describes you, please listen closely. You are a unique, one of a kind human being. Your personality is unlike anybody else's, which makes you as important in this world as anyone else.
9/21/2018Daily Motivation - Build your own dreams or someone else will hire you to build theirs
Run After Your Dream! - Have you ever felt lost as if what you do is getting you nowhere? At some point in our lives, we all have felt as if we had no purpose or sense of direction. We end up simply living by the moment, relaxing, and procrastinating. We all want positive change in life, but without a goal and an ambition, we are stuck in the starting blocks.
9/20/2018Daily Motivation - Believe you can, and you are halfway there
Believing in ourselves is a major factor in our self-motivation. A self-motivated person has the confidence to step out of their comfort zone.
