Are you thankful for your adversities?

As you pursue your dreams, stay ready for adversities. Cause they will come.
And be thankful for your adversities. Your adversities make you a stronger person by developing the person within you, by developing the child within you, by developing the warrior within you.
The next time you have adversities, instead of being sad, be thankful. Cause God gives you adversities only to make you stronger than you already are.
God bless you and have a great weekend!

What's the point?

What's the point of chasing professional success if you forget your parents' birthdays...
What's the point of earning a lot of money if you are not willing to go shopping with your dad and buy him a new pair of comfortable shoes because you think you are too busy...
What's the point of smiling a lot in office if you are too tired to smile at your mother/wife/children/husband...

What's the point?

What's your commitment level?

When I am doing any training for a group for our company SPEAKRISE Training Services, I always keep in mind that it is my responsibility to help people improve their mindset & skillset by training, motivating and developing them. That’s right, no?
But is it ONLY my responsibility? Think about it: Is it also not the responsibility of the participants too?
A few months back while doing a training series, I got to meet a great young man who signed up for our public speaking group training program. During the course of the program, I saw the intensity of the person go high in terms of attitude of learning. He took notes, always completed his homework assignments and did all we told him to for his benefits. He is a true “student of the game”.
Today that guy is a very confident and dynamic public speaker. Yes we helped him achieve that. But is it only our training involvement that made him so good? Is it also not the involvement and the commitment of him too?
I remember as a school student, when I had lower grades that desired, I used to shout, complaint, blame and moan thinking “my tutors are not good, my teachers don’t teach well.” I was blaming them for my low grades. I forgot: It was the involvement and the commitment of mine too.
In which areas of your life do you think you are not getting desired results ONLY because of someone else? Think about it: Is it not lack of commitment level/work from your side also? If yes, change it. If no, think about it once more.
Have a great week ahead.

The perfect age for starting a new venture

You don't need to be of a certain age to start what you want to start, except for marriage :) There is no perfect age for starting working on your dreams.
Start where you are. Listen to your heart, follow your intuition and do all the work required for your dreams.
“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”
