Discomfort Is Necessary for Your Success

Get out of your comfort zone

Most people don’t know much about the process of actually committing to their life dreams and goals, because most people don’t keep most of their agreements.

Most people add a silent, unconscious modifying phrase to all their commitments: “…as long as it’s not uncomfortable.” Or at least not TOO uncomfortable. This chink in your armor is all that excuses need to wedge their way in.

1 percent brains, 99 percent hard work

1 percent brains

In my first week of university, I recall sitting in a lecture doubting my ability. My lecturer said, “Look to your left. Look to your right. By the end of your first semester, one of you won’t be here because you failed or quit”. Such inspiring words for an already nervous 19 year old! I […]

Whatever you want in life, you are already enough

Operation outsource my life

You’re probably going to think I’m lazy because I outsource my life. I don’t do much if I don’t need to or don’t want to. Hell, I can’t even remember the last time I vacuumed or washed the dishes at home. Not that I can’t vacuum. I just don’t want to. Perhaps I should explain […]

Smart entrepreneurs Play CARDDS

Perfect entrepreneurs know, “If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself”. The trouble is, there are no perfect entrepreneurs.

Life is about choices

Life is about choices

Life is about choices. If you live long enough, I believe life will get hard. Whoever you are; life can be unfair. Life can break you down. You can stay down or you can get up and start jumping hurdles. Anything worth doing in this life will challenge you. You may not win every challenge […]
