    Monday motivation So this statement has in recent times been questioned. Many now say, that the experience of others is the best teacher, why go through a thing when you can read about how another person went through it and take a Que from there!!?? Hnmmmm!!! So true!!! Here is however a 2 Kobo worthy of consideration.

    Monday motivation I remember my dad’s truck, he uses it for works on his farm. That truck can carry the whole world…lol. From time to time when I needed to carry some loads, I would call popsy to borrow it and he graciously allowed me use it but the truck had a problem; the reverse gear didn’t work well.

So when installing, one great way of knowing you are done, is to have no screw left! Therefore if the box had 1000…

      Monday motivation If you have read a good number of motivational books I’m quite certain that you have come across the story of the Chinese bamboo tree and how it is often used by motivational speakers as a case study for patience, perseverance and persistence. No? The Chinese bamboo tree is one of the most interesting trees in the world, aside the fact that it has so many incredible uses and unique feautures, the most fascinating thing about this tree, is it’s growth process.

    Find your voice: carve a niche for yourself!

    Motivation Monday It’seasy to get lost in this crazy mixed up world! Loosing your essence, misplacing your originality is quite easy. You need to know however, that amidst all the distractions, chaos, confusion and anarchy, you still can shine through. Do you feel lost, do you feel choked up by everyone and everything, do you feel invisible. Do you feel as if no one hears you or sees you.

Early this year this experience hit…
