“It’s only after you’ve stepped outside your comfort zone that you begin to change, grow, and transform.” ~Roy T. Bennett
Being a recovering procrastinator, self-motivator learner (is that a real term), I’m constantly reading and re-reading books on leadership and management. The popular misconception that they are only pertinent to success in your professional life or business; few people think to carry them into their personal life. But have you given that thought that, if you’re not the leader in your own life, then someone else most certainly will be and they’re not going to lead you in the direction you want to go, but rather in the direction they think you should be going? If you’re not managing your life the same applies.
People tend to be generous when sharing their nonsense, fear, and ignorance. And while they seem quite eager to feed you their negativity, please remember that sometimes the diet we need to be on is a spiritual and emotional one. Be cautious with what you feed your mind and soul. Fuel yourself with positivity and let that fuel propel you into positive action.
We do not get to choose how we start out in life. We do not get to choose the day we are born or the family we are born into, what we are named at birth, what country we are born in, and we do not get to choose our ancestry. All these things are predetermined by a higher power. By the time you are old enough to start making decisions for yourself, a lot of things in your life are already in place. It’s important, therefore, that you focus on the future, the only thing that you can change.” ― Idowu Koyenikan,
There’s a difference between interest and commitment. When you’re interested in doing something, you do it only when it’s convenient. When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.
You have the power to shape your life the way you want it to be. Every thought, every word, every action guides you with a purpose. And that purpose is to fulfil your destiny. Some may say you’re just a dreamer. But everything imagined began with a dream. ~Amaka Nkosazana
