Whenever you try to do anything of importance, you will always stumble upon people waiting to tell you why it cannot be done. Often, these people are the ones closest to us, including our close friends and family. To succeed in any venture, you have to learn to disregard the inevitable negative voice of critics and forge ahead on your own path.
A radical, yet widely accepted belief amongst those with a strong spiritual bent, is that life has no external or material purpose. Society has brainwashed us to believe that we need to achieve so-and-so, making us all scurry around in a never-ending cycle of ‘doing’, instead of being able to just enjoy life and be in the present.
Often there can be significant differences between our perceptions of what our customers want, and what our customers truly want. Gut and Instinct are often poor predictors of actual consumer demand, as are the encouraging words of our close friends and family. Before you invest significant time, energy and money into developing a product, it is essential that you actually test if people will buy what you are creating.
If you wish to achieve large success, it is essential that you learn to think big. Too many people prefer to think small and focus on achievable goals, and miss out achieving anything big in life. On the other hands, people who think big, end up benefiting from lower competition, higher motivation and greater chances of success.
Too many of us rely solely on doctors and medicines to solve our health issues, ignoring the many real and known problems of modern medicine (including the very real side-effects and a focus on symptoms vs the root cause). While medicines have their place, we should not ignore the tremendous value of alternate therapies – including the power of our minds, the proper diets, home remedies and traditional medications.
We often see success and excellence post-facto, and it appears the sheer magnitude of what has been achieved seems impossible to replicate.

We live in a society that has taught us that happiness lies in more, while in reality the opposite may be true. Having too many things distracts us and does not allow us to fully enjoy the few things in life that we really love. Minimalism helps clear your mind, frees up time to do what you love and is tremendously liberating.
We often get so caught up in doing, that we forget to check if what we are doing is really helping us proceed to our desired goals or destinations. While action is important, it is critical that the action is something that it taking you closer to (and not further away) from your desired goals. Are you on the right road?
Your own reach is always going to be limited, especially in contrast to the tremendous reach of the top media houses and influencers in your field. Other Person’s Audiences, is a digital marketing concept, that focuses on how you can best leverage the reach others (especially influencers and media) have to market your content or services.
Everybody has great ideas, but it is only a few that can actually act on a good idea and turn it into a viable business. The execution of an idea is often much more important than the idea itself. To succeed as an entrepreneur, it is vital that you and your team have the ability to execute.
To achieve true success, happiness and contentment it is vital that you follow your own calling, as compared to what your parents, family, colleagues, friends or society believes is the best for you. We each have unique skills and our own special calling, and no one but yourself can determine what is the best path for you. Walk your own path, not one laid down by someone else.
