When someone you know specially your junior is successful, does that make you jealous or does that make you curious.
Better be curious. Find out what it takes for you to go to the next level. Refuse the temptation to sulk, whine and to blame. But channel the energy towards growth, development and improvement. This is always better. #PassionPurposeProductivity

When we had very little and life was hard, our hope was in God. But when God blesses us and we begin to have much, we need to fight the migration of hope to the things we have and the things we do. We need to remind ourselves constantly: “Do not just look at the blessings of God, but look first to the God of the blessings. This keeps the ego in check. #PassionPurposeProductivity

Gentleness is powerful. Meekness is not weakness. It is literally defined as “Power under control.” Do not mistake meek people as weak people. They may have a hidden strength that makes them refuse to participate in useless dramas. And in many cases, those who are rash, loud, rude and disrespectful are hiding insecurities and they offend many. Always be respectful. It is a mark of maturity and power. #PassionPurposeProductivity

Time is not gold; not money. Time is more valuable than both. When you lose gold & money you can earn them back but when you waste time, it is irredeemable. So here is the deal. Do not invest time on activities & stuff that would not add value to your success goals. Reassess your many activities, eliminate those that are merely time wasters & use productively only on those what would help you attain success and growth. #PassionPurposeProductivity

If you cannot change your job, then do whatever you can – to change how you feel about your job. Quitting a job in order to pursue happiness is not practical.
