“If you think you can or think you can’t, you are always right.”
– Henry Ford – founder of Ford Motor Corporation.


Each of us is gifted with different abilities, skills, strengths
and weaknesses. Each of us needs to establish exactly what you
want to do with your life.

One of the most important keys to being successful is to have a
life purpose – no matter what this is.

You are unique with your own special characteristics. You also
have a unique purpose for your life. You are born into this world
with a small legacy and when you pass on, you will leave this world
with what you have gained. What is it you want to achieve in this

Not having direction and focus in your life is similar to driving
a car without any steering. Life is like an ocean, full of winds
and currants which take you off track if you let them. Direction,
purpose and focus is the steering mechanism which guides you
through those disruptive currants and winds and gets you to where
you want to be. If you don’t have focus and direction then you
are at the mercy of the currants and winds of life.


Nothing will be achieved here or in any department of life if one
is not entirely truthful to oneself! This is the very first step!
I mean warts-and-all type of truthfulness. There are many parts of
ourselves we do not like but it is important to learn that that is
the special you and thats the way you are. By the same token, and
no matter how hard you search, each of us has a fantastic number of
good points. Love of yourself is a basic fundamental in
progressing to success. Tolerate the parts of yourself of which
you are not to happy with and start to work and re-shape them into
a better you.

“I have learned success is to be measured not so much about the
position one had reached in life, as rather than by the obstacles
which have been overcome while trying to succeed.” Anonymous
