1 Idea, 1 Quote, 1 Book Recommendation


This year has proved to be difficult for many, but on the contrary, people have also revealed to me that it has been a great year.

Regardless of who you are, this has been "The Great Reset ©" i.e. a chance to reflect, review and respond to the changes to the system.

Here are some questions to think about:

How has this period impacted you negatively?

How has this period impacted you positively?

How must you be going forward?

If you don't know the answers to these questions, then I would urge you to reflect upon them. I say this because if you are able to understand what is required of you, after we come out of this period (however long it takes), then you are better positioned to understand how to create successes in your life and acknowledge when failures or negativities are looming.

What I do know is, that regardless of how we see things, this is an opportunity for real learning and growth. The world has never seen this before, which means you can recreate a new version of yourself...


“Success is the good fortune that comes from aspiration, desperation, perspiration and inspiration.”

- Evan Esar

To me this is another way of saying success is fuelled from many types of sources. How you see the world determines what drives your success. The good and bad are all necessary.
