Thinking in probabilities

Is there a guaranteed outcome? Certainly no, embracing this no allows you to embrace the risk in any given situation. Understanding that there is a risk does not mean that you are accepting the risk. This is what it means to think in probabilities. Since the outcomes are not always guaranteed, it means that there […]

Rethink your life

Is your life intentional or coincidental? Are you living your life with a well- thought-out plan, or it is taken for granted? Does what you do in life give you a deep satisfaction, make you fulfilled, proud, and excited to wake up the next day? Do you know? What drives you? What moves you? What […]

Wonderful couple

When it comes to developing any skill, it takes time and effort to master the trade. Nothing happens overnight. For example, no one can be a professional writer or an author by writing a couple of paragraphs. If patience is lost, you lose the ability to make headway. Patience needs discipline and the opposite is […]

Set the destination in your navigation.

If you do not clearly set your destination, your ship will ultimately lose its navigation. This is a serious matter. If you are undecided about the destination, anything distracts you. Failure is probably a guaranteed outcome. Imagine a pilot taking off a plane, but he or she is clueless about the landing airport. There is […]

Great people are not born great.

Great people usually get catalysed, inspired, or challenged by certain circumstances and experiences. They get influenced or inspired by people around them from family, friends, teachers, or colleagues. The combination of the challenges, disappointments, dreams, failures, and successes that people experience in their lives shapes who they truly are.

Burn the ships. We win-or we perish!

I love to share this story from Napoleon Hill’s book, Think and Grow Rich. The point is that plan B or C always makes people unenergized enough to win. People often resort to their comfort zones when they face problems on the way. Cutting all roads to retreat is essential to success. “A long while […]

Design is everything

If you look at any building whether a small one with few storeys or a skyscraper, there should be a functional drawing for the constructed building. Architects create the drawings and civil engineers supervise the construction based on these drawings. It does not work the other way around. The functionality and totality of the design […]

Action verbs matter for 2021.

No miracles will unfold in the new year unless you win the lottery. What you started in 2020 will continue its uptrend or downtrend trajectory in 2021. You will harvest what you planted. The coming 365 days are the continuation of the past 365 days. Rather than wishing and hoping a happy new year, use […]

Contradicting states of mind

Why do people fail to eliminate a heavily reinforced, deep rooted acquired belief, habit or a thought? Why do they fail to develop and sustain new desired habits? People forget that beliefs, habits, norms or thoughts took so long to materialize. Eliminating a deep rooted belief system does not happen overnight. It does not work […]

Impatience is not a lack of patience.

Let’s start with this fact, the costs of being impatient are immense. Impatience is not a lack of patience. It is the lack of passion. If you are unpassionate about something, it weakens your determination which affects your patience. There is a huge correlation between patience and passion. This pair has a substantial effect on most […]
