The power of discipline and consistent habits cannot be underestimated. By vanishing for half a year and focusing on developing positive habits, anyone can emerge as an unstoppable force, just like Jack Ma and Wangari Maathai. As an Arabic proverb says, "The journey is the reward." It is the small daily actions that lead to great accomplishments.


In many cultures, there are proverbs and sayings that highlight the importance of discipline, perseverance, and self-improvement. In Africa, there is a saying that goes, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” This means that even the greatest accomplishments start with small actions.

If someone were to vanish for half a year and focus on developing positive habits, they could emerge as an unstoppable force. For example, there are many people in Asia and Africa who have achieved success by practicing discipline and consistency.

One example is Jack Ma, the founder of Alibaba Group. Ma grew up poor in China and faced many challenges in his life. However, he was determined to succeed and started building his e-commerce company in 1999. Despite facing numerous setbacks and obstacles, Ma persevered and continued to work tirelessly on his business. His discipline and focus eventually paid off, and today, Alibaba is one of the largest e-commerce companies in the world.

Another example is Wangari Maathai, a Kenyan environmental and political activist. Maathai was the first African woman to receive the Nobel Peace Prize for her work in promoting sustainable development, democracy, and peace. She started the Green Belt Movement in Kenya, which has planted over 50 million trees and has empowered many women to become environmental activists.

Both Jack Ma and Wangari Maathai achieved success by following consistent habits and practicing self-discipline. By exercising regularly, maintaining proper hydration, acquiring new abilities, and following a nutritious diet, they were able to maintain their physical and mental health. They also kept daily diaries, practiced self-control, and took daily strolls, which helped them stay focused and motivated.

In addition to their primary ventures, they also launched secondary ventures that helped them diversify their interests and grow their influence. This shows that by following consistent habits and practicing discipline, anyone can achieve success in multiple areas of their life.

Another interesting person of note is Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla, SpaceX, Neuralink, and The Boring Company. Musk is known for his incredible work ethic and discipline, working up to 100 hours per week to achieve his goals. He also follows a strict daily schedule that includes exercising, reading, and spending time with his family.

Another example is Aliko Dangote, a Nigerian business magnate and philanthropist. Dangote is the founder and CEO of the Dangote Group, which is one of the largest conglomerates in Africa. He is known for his hard work and discipline, often working 16-hour days to grow his business. Dangote also maintains a healthy lifestyle, exercising regularly and following a nutritious diet.
