When you fall along the journey of life, do not focus on the ground but to those around you. Watch the faces keenly and identify those smiling. Never forget their faces.
Failure is part of life. At some point, we have a failure. Failure only gains meaning when we start blaming others for pushing us to failure without justifiable means.
A smiling enemy is more dangerous than one who shows it openly. Some come with doubled smiles when they are about to deliver the final blow. Weigh every smile and every assurance.
Not everyone is permitted to speak into your life. The journey to success is a lonely one. You may choose a few you share a dream with but just know that your destinations may differ as you move along the journey.
Along the journey of success, there are so many fake destinations that look like real ones. If you are not careful, you will arrive too early with little effort and lose out on your main destination.
As you move on to success, choose your fights very carefully. Not every fight is worth your time and attention. You don’t need to fight every negative soul that comes your way. See them from a distance and avoid them.
People will always speak, whether you do what is right or what is wrong. They will speak. They have mouths for that purpose. You don’t have to change to be on their good side. Just be you and do the right thing.
As you move up the ladder, there are friends who will appear genuinely to be on your side. They will want you to succeed. Yes. They will cheer you on but they will never allow you to overtake them. Be wise. Be careful.
If you have a circle that does not inspire you to dream more, grow more, do more, and bring out the best in you, then you are not in a circle but a cage. Break out of such a cage.
Lastly, never ask directions from people who are going nowhere.
