The-next-24-hours-areThe next 24 hours are full of remarkable possibilities.

This could be the day that you use to catch up with a trusted mentor.

This could be the day when you are a trusted mentor.

Sometimes-you-just-need“I believe that I can do it.”

Then reality sets in.

“I still believe that I can do it.”

But reality continues to suggest otherwise.

“I think that I can do it.”

But still nothing changes.

“I hope that I can do it, but I’m starting to doubt.” Read the rest of this entry »

Do-something-that-makesHaving the ability to expand your comfort zone is an important component of living a successful life.

Introduce yourself to someone new,

Call an old friend,

Launch that blog that you’ve been thinking about,

Ask your boss for a pay rise,

Try a new sport or hobby, Read the rest of this entry »

Are-you-counting-theAre you waiting for the weekend, or are you doing something meaningful with your work during the week?

Are you waiting for someone to notice you, or are you working hard to ensure that they can’t miss the quality of your work?

Are you waiting for the perfect circumstances, or are you doing all that you can to make your circumstances better?

Its-a-wild-world-that-weSeriously, it’s crazy out there.

The world is an unpredictable place, full of constant and incessant change.

It waits for no person and cannot be controlled.

So what person is expected to thrive in such a world?

Today-was-the-worst-dayThis remarkable poem was written recently by high school student Chanie Gorkin, from Brooklyn, New York.

I hope that you like it:

Today was the worst day ever

And don’t try to convince me that

There’s something good in every day

Because when you take a look,

If-you-cant-take-theThere’s an old saying that, “if you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen.”

The inference is that when life gets tough, it’s time to escape, to run away, to avoid the pain.
