Start where you are

Starting something new for many people is really hard. And I must admit that this is not a notion but a reality. It is relatively easier to continue an agenda started by someone else than to start on your own. The hardest part of any endeavor is the beginning. Everyone has an opportunity to start something of their own but very few people actually take the step. This is because of the fear of uncertainty and the risk of loss.

The fear of uncertainty is the anxiety that is associated with not knowing a future outcome. Chances are things may go horribly wrong or your expectations may not be met. Also, the risk of loss has to do with the possibility of losing valuables. Looking at the stakes you may not want to venture. Unknown to many people these challenges can be overcome by one element-faith.

Faith is one of the most powerful resources in the world that is heavily underated. The faith of a man lights his path in darkness. Have that strong belief that at the end of whatever it is you choose to start is success. This is not to brush aside all the challenges associated with your endeavors but rather encourage a strong attitude in the face of these challenges.

All you have to do is start.




Be the Best

The best are always on top. They are always the preferred choice. They are the distinguished among the rest. They are those who were able to beat the competition. Everybody was born to be the best in something at some point in time.

For someone to be the best, the person must do something first. Do something not only for yourself but also for those around you. In doing something, you build confidence, experience and expertise. Those who value what you do will give you recognition for your efforts. Therefore you become what you do. Once you have that recognition, competition sets in. Competition is a test for everybody. It takes unusual skill and extraordinary ability to beat the competition and stay ahead of the rest.

Being the best means beating the competition within and without. To deal with the competition within requires faith over fear, love over hatred and hope over despair. As for the competition without, they are uncountable. It only takes your resolve to overcome them all.

Nothing can stop what a person chooses to be. It is in every human being to be the best. Offer more than what is expected of you. This is not about perfection but resolution. Go for gold.
