💡 It’s a fact of life that some people may hold us back, while others will propel us forward. Learning how to deal with this is more important than wishing our reality was different. We therefore cannot hang out with negative people and expect to have a positive life and be thriving in business.
More importantly, if we do all the right things, but don’t get around people who hold us to a higher standard, we may not thrive further than our current limits (and why so often we may struggle in any ventures, be it business or life).
The lesson here❓
✅ Actively constructing our social environment is important, BOTH for our life and business.
➡️ Don’t let it depend on proximity or chance or on how the past has always been. Rather consciously plan which opinions, attitudes and life philosophies are allowed and NOT allowed in our life.
✅ Putting ourselves in environments where we can maximize #growth is the best tool (learning) for success.
➡️ Do not hesitate being in such environments for the fear of looking stupid. This only limits the opportunity for growth.
✅ Investing in a business coach or mentor who not only holds you accountable but is able to help us steer our ship in the right direction is a recipe for success (versus one that is trial and error).
➡️ Being the smartest in the room is a sign that a new horizon is required. And remember, success leaves clues, so surrounding ourselves with success is key!
💡 Like a turtle, we all have a comfort zone where we can curl away, feel cozy and safe inside a shell…
But if there was ever a lesson I learnt the day I started my first business and was at the brink of having nothing 2 years later, it was the following:
✅ To change our destiny, our thinking and neuropathways need to be challenged i.e. one must be willing to step out of the turtle shell no matter how much we feel at home
✅ Our mindset will only begin to change if we allow ourselves to be exposed to the possibilities of change. Stepping out of the comfort zone can be one of the hardest things anyone can do, but it all starts with building self-confidence.
✅ There is no over the counter formula we can buy for success, but here’s a formula to remember:
PREPARATION (i.e. personal development) + ATTITUDE (mindset) + OPPORTUNITY (actively pursuing and not waiting) + ACTION (doing something about it)
✅ Before stepping out of our comfort zone, accept that we will meet fear along the path e.g. an excuse, a misbelief that may make us believe something that is simply not true. It’s important that we become adept at seeing it for what it is.
💡 “I’m not really a creative person” may be a really common sentence for many when asked to do something, such as starting a business, or doing something outside their comfort zone.
Yet, could it really be that some of us are born to be more creatively gifted than others and end up running great businesses and lifestyles whilst others are merely ordinary❓
✅ The truth is, (as scientific studies have shown) NO. We all have the be creative capacity to unlock anything we consciously choose to do, whether its business or in our personal life.
The key is to UNLOCK it, and here’s how:
✅ Schedule creativity time every week in the calendar. This environment should be a safe place that provides for a dopamine high, relaxed state of mind. These scientific factors are ideal for creativity and idea formation.
✅ Ideas need to marinate, bake, and form before they move forward. An undistracted environment that allows us to explore our internal creativity is core to this. Anything from exercising, to listening to inspirational music to salt baths.

💡 Starting a new venture in life or business may not be easy for anyone, however by understanding the rootcause of any emergences of our fears, we can use this as a navigation to direct us to our ultimate fulfilment, whether in business or life.
Many may ask, how is this possible❓ And below are some tips to consider, if fear may be holding you back in life:
✅ Firstly understanding the root cause of our fears by listing down all our fears and the reasons for them allows us to separate them between tangible and intangible (a fallacy) fears.
✅ The reason for determining the source of our anxiety isn’t to give us an excuse to keep living in fear. It’s to help us assert power over these fears so that they no longer control who we are by implementing ACTION PLANS.
✅ How we do this is by changing the story of our lives we tell ourselves and changing our mindset. The first step is recognizing that we ALL have a choice. We can blame outside forces for our emotions and feel out of control, OR we take charge of our life and stop living in fear.
✅ Remember, fear emerges in response to growth; it’s a sign we are doing something new. For growth and transformation to appear, fear will arise continuously as we step outside the comfort zone – YET its a sign that we are doing what we are set out to do.

💡 Having failed in multiple start ups early on in my career, and having to revert back to corporate world for a few years before returning in the entrepreneurial race, I realized there are two distinct groups of people when it comes to choosing our own destiny: 1) those who drive (change and take action), and 2) those who follow a lead.
What may the difference between entrepreneurs (or individuals) who then choose to sit in the driver’s seat vs the passenger seat?
✅ Being the driver means, we have control of our outcomes i.e. we decide which highway to take, which side road to escape traffic, whether to slam brakes or hit the accelerator etc…
It’s easy to visualize the above, as we see (or sit in) cars almost daily. Yet, many of us may struggle applying this principle in our career, business or personal life…WHY❓
✅ When we haven’t seen the end outcome in reality, instinct may call us out on self doubt and fear of failure…
✅ So we then step back into our comfort zone in fear the result may not be as expected
✅ The downside… do we live a life unfulfilled not realizing our true potential and ultimate dreams of our purpose in life❓
