Success is a dirty word.

Just the mere mention of it will conjure up a whole set of expectations and emotions.

You’re attached to the idea of it.

It haunts you.

You think you know what it means, but the reality is, it’s been defined for you.

And it’s come to define you,

It’s even been associated with your value as a human being. 

Success is not about achieving an aim, it’s about having one

It’s not about winning, it’s about trying

And it’s not about how much you have, it about what you do with it

And fundamentally it’s about who you are, your character, as a person.

Success is not confined to this world

Nor should it be

So don’t let anyone tell you if you’re successful or not, that’s not for them to say

It’s for you to figure out, and that’s best left to you and God.

  • The Decision of No Decision
    Indecision is a decision in and of itself, even though you may not recognise it as such. Your decision to do nothing – to let things play out on their own. It’s taking a back seat and waiting to see how the chips may fall.
  • Taking Your Second Chance
    It’s pointless, because history will always be confined to history. Instead it may be time to look yourself in the mirror, at the risk of not liking what you see. Because getting it right, means being honest with yourself. It comes with the brutality of having to confront your own demons, And being able and willing to take the hits. So take your second chance. Don’t look back in anger, maintain the hope And be determined to do things a little different.
  • Symphony of Sadness
    There’s a great symphony in sadness A million things conspiring beautifully together to set a sombre tone. It’s a tragedy, no doubt.  Irrational at times, often transcending words or reason....
  • Communication Is Not a One Way Street
    Communication is not a one way street. It’s not about talking, it’s about listening. It’s not about reacting, it’s about responding. It’s not about knowing, It’s about understanding. It’s not about judgement or pretense It’s about connection.
  • Leaving It All Behind
    Some things are certainly worth holding onto -  Others we just hold onto because we are too afraid to say goodbye.  Not because we can’t But because doing so means facing our own mortality
