🌻5 SMART INSIGHTS🌻
“Refusing to compromise is an integral part of the path to success”
Your worse missteps will be the ones that you have chosen to compromise on in order to be “successful”. Some of these may not feel like “choices” to you at the time but they are. Never compromise on your integrity, self-respect, health and mental well-being, family and your walk with God.
“Most successful people more often than not, have mentors in their life. People who’ve been there, done that, people who speak truth into your lives to help shortcut your success journey.”
Successful people model other successful people. They are constantly looking for people who are better then themselves. Leverage on other people's success to fast-track your own. Who inspires you? What are their daily routines? How do they overcome their obstacles? What drives them? Their secrets might be your breakthrough.
“If you have a very clear vision of where you want to go, the rest of it is much easier.”
Don't just think it. Speak forth.
Don't just speak forth. Write down.
Don't just write down, look at it daily.
Don't just look at it daily. Act on it.
And never stop acting on it till your vision come to past.
“Absolutely refuse to accept less than your best”
Do not mistake doing your best as doing your hardest. Slow down and consider the next few words properly… Doing your best may mean you have to hold back to prevent a burn out. Doing your best may mean you need to take a break even though your mind want to move forward. Your best is relative. Realize that days for you to slow down are meant for you to go far.
“Learn to enjoy and appreciate the process”
You are going to spend far more time on the actual journey than with those all too brief moments of triumph at the end. Have precious moments with yourself. Appreciate the pain you feel after a physical training. Appreciate the taste of your meal. Appreciate what you read and how there are real people behind actually writing it. Life is full of little miracles if you will just take a moment and appreciate it.
🌻2 QUOTES FROM OTHERS🌻

“The eye through which I see God is the same eye through which God sees me; my eye and God's eye are one eye, one seeing, one knowing, one love.” – Meister Eckhart
🌻1 QUESTION FOR YOU🌻
How fast do you adapt in the light of new and credible information?
Be mindful of your usual thought process. Are you usually a skeptic? How quickly do you act on a good idea?
Go deep, get asking.
Until next week,
