Following Principles

As you start turning your dreams into reality, by putting what you have to good use, you must learn to be patient and you must learn to be persistent; nothing good comes easy, without painstaking effort.

Be prepared for criticism but do not be discouraged by them.

Even as you persist, at what you are good at, be rest assured that you will eventually break through and even.

You must make up your mind to work hard.

Whatever your hands finds to do, do it with all diligence; a diligent person will not stand before ordinary men, but before kings.

Success does not happen by chance, it does not come by praying and fasting alone.

There is a prize to pay. It is hard work.

Successful people are those who failed at one point in time, but refused to give up.

Those who didn’t attain that climax, are people who had the potential for success, but gave up soon after they failed.

Doing no work is the hardest kind of work; unfortunately, it yields no return.

Through hard work,
you develop your skills and cultivate the habit of excellence.
All successful men and those who excelled, in the niche they carved out for themselves, all followed principles and still do.

Start small and work HARD at it.

Start with what you have and apply the right principles.
Be persistent and don’t be scared to dream too BIG.

who has shown through her undeterred actions, that a woman can do better at what men do, not only if given a chance BUT when you take that chance.

Start Right

People are out there doing a lot of things to get by and I’m doing nothing but sit on my ass waiting for a big break. I thought it’d be easy to deduce from the fact Rome wasn’t built in a day that life is a gradual process where every thing starts little and grows with dedication, not just hardwork at first. When it comes to success, suddenly everyone is myopic; we don’t see the big picture on the seemingly small canvass. It doesn’t feel like a multinational now doesn’t mean it won’t grow to be one.

Its hard, considering the nothingness we’re engulfed in these days but I dare you to dream big. Prepare possible responses to questions about your grounds breaking achievement(s) in the mirror, and one day that practice would make perfect the success you’re becoming. Make your dreams a reality through constant positive thoughts, believe in it so much its imprinted in your subconscious; then leave the rest the faith which perfects all things as long as you believe.

We have all put off one bright idea or the other at some point because at the time it made little or no sense to us, let alone the world at large. Right there could have been the birth of an ingenious streak of ideas, the murder of a perfectly carved out niche that could have separated us from the lot. That sieve that separates the wheat from the chaff, same one that separates the boys from men. If you are thinking different from the next man you are on the right track. Dare to think outside this box they say is round.

More often than not, failure is a vital lesson. Its a first hand experience on how to do things differently. In every obstacle, there is a maneuver tactic to be learnt & we all know practice makes perfect.
