Let’s Talk About It – Respect humble beginnings

Everyone has their own story to tell and, I believe, everything starts somewhere. It is important for us, as humans, to respect our humble beginnings because that is where greatness is formed. Many people have inferiority complexes because of their current situations and circumstances. It takes a strong mind to rise to the occasion when…

Let’s Talk About It – Making your own decisions

With the passage of time, I have learnt that growing up and being an adult is all about making decisions. It is clear that all stages of life involve decision-making to some degree unless you are a child – then you cannot decide for yourself. As we become more aware of ourselves, we get to…

Let’s Talk About It – It’s not about where we come from

I have observed and noticed that many people blame their circumstances for their failures in life. It is important to realise, however, that where we come from does not really determine where we are going. If we are all to blame our backgrounds, then most of us would see no signs of success because many…

Let’s Talk About It – The art of persistence

Success belongs to everyone with the relevant qualities and who apply them consistently. We may all want to be successful but very few people get there, even those who do have the right qualities – hard work, passion, determination, dedication and all that. If, however, we lack just one thing – the art of persistence…

Let’s Talk About It – Becoming a better person

It is an undisputed fact that no one is perfect and, if anyone could be perfect, they wouldn’t be human. As people, we tend to expect others to be perfect and yet we know that we all make mistakes. Allowing ourselves and others to be imperfect takes a great deal of acceptance. Not feeling accepted…

Words of Wisdom: Overcoming Crisis

Living on earth requires of us to expect the unexpected and prepare for the unforeseen. Nobody thought the Zimbabwean president, Robert Mugabe would step aside in 2017 in the manner in which he did. It took a crisis to enforce such change. The soldiers became the drivers of that crisis; that’s the nature of life….

Let’s Talk About It – just start doing

Everyone has something they want to achieve in life; the only dilemma is where and how to start. We can all dream, plan and envision where we want to be but as long as we do not take the first step, we will never really know what we are doing. It is one thing to…

Let’s Talk About It – The pressure

As human beings, we have to go through so much pressure in life that it often leads to depression. The kind of pressure usually depends on the stage of life we are at but, the truth is, not everyone can handle the pressure that comes with life. It is not easy to deal with pressure….

Let’s Talk About It – Don’t be afraid to fail

I believe that many more people would succeed if they were not so afraid of failure. When the fear of failure overrides the excitement of success, we only see the negative and block ourselves from going after our goals. People are too concerned about what others think of them and are afraid of being the…

Let’s Talk About It – Never, ever give up in life

I have noticed that many people have given up in life. They have given up on their dreams, goals, relationships and even a good life. It is a sad reality to see people without hope for the future. We all reach a point where we feel exhausted or drained by our ambitions and, sometimes, it…
