Why you need to set goals & how to do it

Why you need to set goals & how to do it  In every aspect of life one needs to know where he’s heading.  Otherwise, time is passing by and we are moving through life aimlessly like a ship without the captain being on the steering wheel, left in the mercy of the waves to throw it here and there.

Why choose self employment?

We have been brought up in a society that teaches us to go and have a good education so that we can then get a good job. Employment is the normal thing to do when starting a career and rarely does a youngster consider going into business straight after college. So we usually get qualified into something and then we seek relevant employment. After awhile, however, we realise the unpleasant aspects of the whole thing. Long hours working for someone else; Long commuting hours; A bossy boss; Power games amongst employees; Low pay; Doing things that don’t fulfil our soul; […]

Although to some people new in this technique it might […]

Why we need to step out from comfort zones

Imagine having walked a certain length around a central point several times. You have walked that same area enough times and made it “your own”. Then you’ve decided that you will put some sort of borders, boundaries to seclude and secure this area and that you do not wish to go outside of it. You have decided to stay within those boundaries, not because you necessarily are completely content within this area – the Zone – but because it feels safe, known and what happens in it is predictable. This might  feel right when you first established this protected circle, […]

How our beliefs can block our progress & success

Our belief system is a set of concepts or ideas that we carry as our truth and govern our thoughts, words and actions.  These beliefs begun to formulate from the moment we were born and have been influenced by our parents, teachers, the society and our own observations and experiences whilst growing up.
