Success means doing the best we can with what we have. Success is the doing, not the getting; in the trying, not the triumph. Success is a personal standard, reaching for the highest that is in us, becoming all that we can be.
Sccess is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.
Mistakes are really just opportunities for learning and growth. Never be ashamed to own he has been in the wrong, which is but saying... that he is wiser today than he was yesterday.
The only real mistakes are the ones from which we learn nothing.
@Regrann from @theisaacola: The real challenge for a lot of us is that when we go about our lives, we interact with so many “big” things and we forget or don’t even know how they originally started. It’s difficult to understand how the evolutionary process of products and brands contributes and is vital to what they are today. We also all have big aspirations and want to get there fast.
I’ve personally made the mistake of trying to jump to “big” too soon many times before. I think there are probably countless other examples out there where founders try to have an immediately huge vision.
What I’ve notice more and more, is that great things almost always start small. Most of us know that Richard Branson started the Virgin brand with a student magazine, but Virgin is just one of many examples which shows that the reality is counterintuitive: actually, the best things we know and love started as tiny things.
I’ve found that if I look into my own life, I find similarly that some of the most important achievements I’ve made started as little projects. Look around you, everything big you see around actually started small.
Successful business entrepreneurs and visionary leaders start small and eventually grow big through numerous challenges. Nothing big started big. Study your neighborhood, match your gift with a problem, start small, learn quickly as you grow along and you're more likely to succeed.
Some months ago, I was privileged to speak to my fellow youngster at the Infinix mobility Fans forum and It really was an incredible experience for me. As I listened to myself speak, one of the things that stood out for me is the un-negotiable need for a daily commitment to our set goals, as this ultimately will be one of the most important factors to achieving our life aspirations. It's virtually impossible to commit yourself to something daily and you won't get better or be transformed by it. There has to be DELIGENCE. The word of God says in Proverbs 22:29
" Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men. " so someone might say! Have tried na!! No you haven't! You have to be careful and persistent at your effect. And you must be deliberate. The question to you is. Did you do it daily? No matter how little! The catch here is, that goal of yours has to be registered in your mind daily, else previous work applied becomes null. #batinix#successtoriesafrica#SSafrica06#thefutureisnow#infinix#success#inspiration#africanyouth#youthdevelopment#topnaija#futureleaders#nigerianyouths#youngpeople#integrity#integritydiven
It Can Be Painful But You’ll Learn The Most By Failing
We happen to think we are big failures when we are failing. We aren’t failures, we just need to go through the process of life when we try things. That’s the reality. We have to overcome the negativity. The sad part is that we low-key know about this but ‘fail” to take this approach because it’s unconventional. But you know what? Everything I have ever succeeded at was done through failing many times and not giving up.
“Failure isn’t fatal, but failure to change might be” – John Wooden
Volleyball had many practicing hours before I could even learn to serve. Writing took me writing 83 essays to every 1 my classmates wrote so I could top them. In all of those essays, 1 in every 15 would be really amazing. My driving test took me two attempts. So what I want you to do is to learn to fight the thought of failure being a bad thing. See the word “fail” and turn it mentally to “learn”. It’s hard but only through failing will we learn the most. It’s painful but it shouldn’t have to be.

Bear with me for a second. I asked my boyfriend what “failing” means to him. His response was............. ____________________________________________________

Moments from @Vnigeria_ctp#Reboot2016 event earlier today. One of the participants @sa__amin said " I learnt a lot about IT or ICT at reboot 2016 and how to use it as a tool to create, motivate, educate, improve and change lives and most importantly our country not only in this #Recession period but in the future. It was so educational and motivating. I thought I knew enough until I got there". #vnigeria#redhat#reboot2016#Topnaija
