HOW TO BE SUCCESSFUL - IN WORK AND IN LIFE

* Find your PASSION, ie. what really motivates you, what drives you?
* Dream big dreams.
* Have a goal and plan to achieve.
* Have your goals in line with your deepest principles,
totally in alignment with your highest life values.
* Love doing what you do.
* Listen to the advice of your spouse/partner.
* Seek help from those whose skills
you don't have.
* BELIEVE you are a winner, or one who CAN be.
* Work
smarter, not necessarily harder.
* Fly with the eagles, don't scratch with the turkeys
(Though eagles may fly high, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines).
* Be prepared to take calculated risks.
* Be aware that opportunities are always around (and are often
disuised as problems!).
* Promote your product well.
* Satisfy customers needs completely.
* Be decisive, determined and self-disciplined.
* ENCOURAGE others constantly.
* Stay POSITIVE, no matter the adverse circumstances you may be facing. A positive outlook, ie mind-set works wonders. Know that this too "shall sometime pass" (the really tough times we all go through, as well as the easy times, when we coast along, hair blowing in the breeze,.
* Enjoy the journey, even as you slide down the rapids of life...
and most impoirtantly, have FUN and laughter along the way.
* N.B: Act and live
with utmost integrity at all times.
* Have a strong belief in yourself.
And, no matter how dark your circumstances,
* An even stronger belief and TRUST in God, a Higher Power, a Supreme Being, Life itself
(or whatever the concept of God means to you personally)...
that things will work out for you and your life.

"Become the person you are CAPABLE of being ... and ALL the
person God, Our Creator, the Ultimate Source intended us to
become."

"Do not follow the well-beaten track of others towards success -
like the rainbow, it is often an illusion always just beyond
our reach. Make your own path and let your spirit blaze a
brilliant trail towards the pot of gold, the prize for the
gift - one that is uniquely you and YOUR successful journey
down the river of life."

"Success to others may be apparent in what you DO; but
significance, meaning and purpose lies, then reveals itself in
what you ARE and BECOME down the 'river of life' - how and the
spirit with which you face, then overcome the daily obstacles,
the frequent trials and tribulations along the often rocky
path-way of life's magical and mysterious journey. Light your
path brightly."

"For me life is about loving a lot,
laughing a lot and having good friends.
To feel good about your uniqueness and all the special qualities
that are yours to share with the rest of the world.

It's your time to shine...
to celebrate all that's best and brightest in your life.
So be the bright light you can be to the world."

"Our Greatest Good is perhaps not to achieve wealth and share our material possessions, our money and 'riches' with others, but through encouragement and faith in other people, to lay the firm foundation of revealing the rich treasure that lies within themselves.
Perhaps that is true success in life."
