Define Success on Your Own Terms

“Your true success in life begins only when you make the commitment to become excellent at what you do.” —Brian Tracy

“Success comes from knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.” —John Wooden

“The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle.” – Steve Jobs

Success, like happiness, is an individual pursuit. For years, we have been taught that success is all about making a lot of money. That is also what we have inadvertently taught our children and in turn, they too will pass on this folly to their children. You might never have heard your parents speak about success but isn’t it true that they often encouraged you to become a Lawyer or Doctor, long before you were old enough to know what you are good at?

Quote of the day

Be in the Right Place at the Right Time

Surrounding yourself with the kind of people that will help 
you stay focused is important, but even if you stand
alone, you can reach your goals if you are in the right place at the
right time. Finding likeminded people rarely happens when you
idle at home alone. You need to put yourself in the ideal locations
to find what or who will motivate you to reach your goal. Your aim
should always be to optimize your environment in such a way that
it will push you closer and closer towards your goals.

You don’t need a title to make impact

How to make impact in life, at work or business - motivational quote
We live in a society that places so much importance on titles. I remember those days that anyone who made a few millions would run to his village to obtain one chieftaincy title or the other. At a time, in some places, it became a battle of the 'highest bidders' for the titles. Why? Everybody wants to be called chief and seen as someone very important.

The Wisdom in Diversification

Need to have different porfolios and streams of income during economic depression
In these uncertain economic times, we need to talk about this. A school of thought believes one should put all his eggs in one basket and watch over it, while another school is of the opinion that you should put your eggs in different baskets to guard against the unexpected.
