🔥5 High Performance INSIGHTS🔥


YOUR choice is the only one that matters. 

People are going to tell you that you can’t do things. That your vision is impossible. That it's too hard. That it cost too much. That it's too tiring.

The only label that is going to stick is the one you put on yourself, so throw all those thoughts out of the window right now. It does not serve you. 

You can do it.

Your vision will come to pass.

It's going to be hard but you WILL find the strength.

It'll cost a lot but your resourcefulness shall see no limits.

It is tiring but every single moment shall be inspired living.


Shadowy doubts

Self doubts are just like shadows. Whenever there is light, there it will be.

Like shadows, sometimes it can look big and scary. But when you try to touch it, you will realize that it is not real.

Your mind is so powerful and wonderfully made that in the same way it can give power to mere shadows (that don't exist), it can give power and endurance to affirming thoughts about yourself.

Practice those instead.


Feedbacks come in many shapes and forms 

Sometimes, your best feedback comes packaged with a doze of irritation and unkind words. Other-times, your best feedback are those that are completely silent. 

Taking feedbacks personally would be a big mistake because it would mean that you missed the point. In those feedbacks are PRECIOUS GOLD nuggets that will show you the route to success. 

So go out there into your community today and gather as many gold nuggets as you can. It is going to make you rich!


You have so much to give the world.

When we talk about giving. People always think about money. 

You have so much more to give the world then just money. We need to think differently about the concept of giving. 

You can give time, you can give heart, you can lend your voice, you can offer your words and most importantly, you can give love and care.

When we expand our concept of giving, that is when we are able to take things that are intangible and unquantifiable and turn them into something real and solid.

The mark of a true creator.


The biggest miracles are often hidden in the smallest details

These days, everything is about speed and moving fast. Our minds are already on the next task before the current one is complete. We have the tendency of living in the future.

The problem with that is that we miss the many beauty and miracles that are happening in the present. 

That little hug your boy gave you when you drop him off at school.. the way your little girl hold on to your hand while the both of you were walking to the car, the playful banter you had with your wife in the morning…

And then at the end of the day… we question the meaning of life.

Beloved… The miracles are already there. Live in the moment and you will begin to notice it.




“Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.” — Albert Einstein


“Life is like a camera. Focus on what’s important. Capture the good times. And if things don’t work out, just take another shot.” – Ziad K. Abdelnour



What is one improvement you can make tomorrow that will add meaning and purpose to your life?

By answering this question, you will be practicing..

  1. Taking small steps to achieve a big goal
  2. Being just a little bit better everyday.

These are the foundation principals towards living your best life. You will look back at this in the future and be so proud of yourself for how far you have came.

So go deep, get asking. 

Take small steps. Find your purpose.
