My thoughts for the month…

Just as it’s important to keep physically active, it’s of equal importance to keep our minds active. By reading a variety of books and exposing ourselves to a myriad of ideas, we increase our knowledge as well as our ability to understand a plethora of thoughts and ideas.

Reading a variety of books can take us faraway to learn and guide us on the exploration of our inner-selves. It has always been of great interest that mankind eagerly explores science, medicine, the workings of the human mind and outer space without ever looking inward to explore their inner-selves.

The more we read and explore new thoughts and ideas, the closer we come to identifying what we want out of life and then the plan is put in place to achieving our goals. The More You Know, The More You Grow, as the saying goes.

It has also been said that we learn more from our mistakes than from any book or course, and I agree having made many mistakes myself. At the same time, I encourage you to learn from your mistakes and the mistakes of others as well, as you really don’t have enough time to make all the mistakes yourself!

Whether in your personal or business lives, many of the most successful people have failed their way to success. Failing is part of becoming successful, quitting is failure. As for feelings of inferiority, those must be eliminated, if we are to find the success we seek. When we feel inferior, we tend to act inferior and our body language screams that to the universe.

We don’t make mistakes intentionally, but fear of making a mistake can hold you back. So go and make mistakes and become incredibly successful knowing that you have the ability within you to be what you want to be and you were meant to be a successful person.

"While one person hesitates because he feels inferior, the other is busy making mistakes and becoming superior." – Henry C. Link
