Testing yourself

"Testing oneself is best done alone." 

If you do not make time to evaluate yourself you may end up spending weeks, months or years being false to yourself and those around you. You need to develop methods of measuring your internal intentions with actual results. 

If you have a vision or a dream that you desire to for-fill and it only remains an internal picture then you need to ask yourself a few hard and serious questions. If you don't question yourself then you will not have the opportunity to answer yourself so that you may bring about the necessary changes. Here are a few questions that you may like to ask yourself. 
  1. What needs to be done in-order to make sure that my character has the capacity to stand up to the size of vision that I have within me? 
  2. Who can I passionately make my vision or dream alive to investors or dream builders?
  3. What can you do to draw out the contents of my dream and make it a reality? 
Pro 20:4-6 AMP  The sluggard does not plow when winter sets in; therefore he begs in harvest and has nothing.  (5)  Counsel in the heart of man is like water in a deep well, but a man of understanding draws it out. [Prov. 18:4.]  (6)  Many a man proclaims his own loving-kindness and goodness, but a faithful man who can find?

Those who make time to inspect themselves with true scales are those who have the opportunity to make important decisions  that will enable them to be more fruitful than they have been up to know

1% better in a 100 ways

1% better in 100 ways 

"It is hard to be 100% better than your competition, but you can be 1% better in a 100 ways - Rick Melman 
  • I will do more than belong, I will participate 
  • I will do more than care, I will help
  • I will do more than believe, I will practice 
  • I will do more than be fair, I will be kind 
  • I will do more than forgive, I will forget 
  • I will do more than dream, I will work 
  • 1 will do more than teach, I will inspire 
  • I will do more than earn, I will enrich 
  • I will do more than give, I will serve 
  • I will do more than live, I will grow 
  • I will do more than suffer, I will triumph
Today matters; as you shape your today, you will be blessed with a richer tomorrow - your tomorrows are waiting for you to take hold of the today's and move the boundaries of the "I cannot" into "I have found a way forward." 

Everybody is aiming at the 100% target, but if you add that extra percentage daily in a 100 different ways, as time goes by you would have move from success to significance (brilliance)

Making today matter

A mark of brilliance 

Tomorrow is the only day in the year that appeals to the lazy, the doubtful, the double-minded or fearful personas a good time to do what needs to be done.”- Martin van der Merwe – 

As a leader you need to gain momentum in order to go beyond the mainstream called average. You have it in you to prevail beyond producing what the masses produce, and as you stretch yourself in the direction of excellence you will end up leaving a mark of brilliance behind you. 

"Successful people are successful because they form the habits of doing those things that failures don't like to do." ~ Albert Gray

Remember that your habits are on autopilot, so if you dislike your daily results then you need to reprogram your habits (reset the auto pilot)  

Overcome befriending "yesterdays standards" and pursue a "brilliant tomorrow" be consistent. As a leader you know that average is not the way forward.

Words - words - words

Words - words -words

1. Are you a person of many words and little action?
2. Is your mind and heart taking account of all the words that float around in you and do you have a reliable personality that does not permit procrastination?

The difference between extraordinary people and ordinary people is the little “extra” that extraordinary people do more than normal people. And you are no different than the great people out there.

If you trained yourself to be a steward of your thoughts and your spoken word(s) then you will start to see that your inner vision will start to get external structure, you need to take what you are saying seriously and as you find ways to overcome procrastinating your words and thoughts you will become overly successful.

Consider doing the following daily:

1. Attitude: I will display the right outlook daily.
2. Priorities: I will act on the things most important to me daily.

3. Meditating: I will practice good thoughts daily.

4. Commitment: I will make and keep proper promises daily.
5. Faith: I will deepen and live out my faith daily.

6. Relationships: I will initiate and invest in solid relationships daily.
7. Values: I will embrace good standards daily.

Consistency is a character trait that everyone can work at, people who have disciplined themselves, who have worked wisely and who have consistently applied excellence to their day - to - day work load  will always over time move from success to success and from great to greatness. Consistency that is applied through the habit of excellence will bring stability, clarity, reliability and it will give you endurance to face every day with an energetic approach. Consistency passionately applied will cause  mediocrity  to be non - existent, the excellence that you apply continuously will cause you to stand out in the crowd, remember you must endure to prevail, many people start of with consistency but as time goes by they altar their values, make excuses, look for shortcuts and end up surrendering to average. If you want to move "fast forward on purpose" work daily on being consistent and work at those things that will guarantee success.

Those who make today matter will enjoy the blessings of a great tomorrow.
