It’s a fact that many people in life fear stepping

into the unknown and questioning their abilities. They fear failure, disapproval, and discomfort. They are more aware of the thousands of potential obstacles that paralyze them. I have watched over men and women who were so daring in the past to step out and step over, making huge contributions to mankind and impacting the word with their success. However, once you make the decision to step out of your comfort zone and fully commit to doing this daily, you’ll experience many amazing things you wouldn’t have otherwise.

I want to encourage you to become comfortable with feeling uncomfortable by showing you the great consequences of embracing discomfort. There are many things I look back now, and wish I should have dared to step out and do, some of them are what I term lost opportunities but that as then, am still young I have made up my mind that I will always be daring, step out and step up to reach my goals. There ain`t no more comfort zones for me.

In this life if you and I want to see progress we MUST get out of living in the comfort zone, comfort is the enemy of achievement; we have to imagine ourselves in uncomfortable situations. In your mind while you are living in comfort, as there will come a time when you will be forced to change because of your situation, so it is better to make progress while it is an option and not a necessity. Once you get out of your comfort zone you will grow as an individual, nothing great was ever achieved by remaining in a comfort zone. Many business ‘have been started during a crisis and many leaders are born and step out during difficult times of life.

Travelling around the world, I have realized that, too many people have no pressure in their lives, so they just sit back and wait for something to change. They take it easy day after day, wasting their time doing nothing, just living life like everyone else, what is so hard in being average, nothing, it doesn’t take much effort to be like the rest of the population, working their 8-5 jobs, paying bills, living for the weekend, and leaving your future in the hands of someone else, are you not in charge of your life, yes you are, you can shape your destiny, you can dictate how you live. The rules of the game of life are not set in stone, they are there to be broken, and we can live life on our terms and life live to the limits.  Brian Tracy once said, “Move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new.”


Nothing will change if you do not change what you do daily; you have to dedicate at least one hour a day to self-improvement and entrepreneurial activities. Take a close look at your life and see that if you continue doing what you’ve always done, your life will remain just as it is, break through those imaginary shackles that are holding you back, don’t just exist, live. Live life at a different level from everyone else and strive for excellence, wake up with determination to be the best that you can be, and take action, action is the only thing that will take you from where you are to where you want to be.



Don’t regret being alive later in years, when old age has caught up with you, the energy to do what you were meant to do is gone and dried up. Don’t wait to figure it out later, figure it out now and step out and step up now. Comfort zone is the thief and killer of many a dreams in people’s lives. You are born an achiever a trendsetter. Make good use of this new Year/ New season and pursue after your dreams relentlessly.

A life of inspiring others.  


Abraham LincolnBy Herbert Mtowo

It seems nowadays society, mankind is getting more and more selfish, unkind, greedy and uncaring for anybody. But believe you me this isn’t the way to go and be able to achieve much. Africa bleeds at and is suffering at as a result of despots, selfish, heartless leaders parading as saviours and heroes. There is a rise of a new breed of leaders, politicians and business people in Africa who put people first. Their joy is in seeing poverty, down trodden and hopeless peasants be inspired and cared for enough to rise to greatness.

The men and women , who are the true entrepreneurs, are those individuals who make the biggest impact to society in a positive manner, to touch people’s lives’ and improve it for the better. The ones who are just committed to accumulating the most wealth will fail in their endeavours ultimately, success is not about how wealthy you become, it is about how many people you can help to live a better life. In this life I have observed that, the ones, who truly succeed, are those who chase after a bigger vision, who aim to help millions of people by sacrificing their own desires to live in the service of others.

My challenge to you and me in 2016 and beyond is to be   selfless and make the world a better place for all, you were born unique, you were born with your own dreams and talents, don’t let it lay dormant and die with you. I am of the strong belief that,an  un-lived life is a life wasted, attack your fears with determination, and chase after your dreams, turn your dreams into goals and live life on your terms. Be different and aim for greatness, you truly are special.

I am sure that many successful,people know what the meaning of hard work is, they don’t sit around acting like everyone else. Those who are dedicated to living life on their terms spend time every single day working on their goals, it’s not a maybe, it’s a must, you must allocate time to success. Most people have a laid back approach to life, they say I will do something different tomorrow, or next week, or next month, or next year. The question is why are you not doing it today, why is there such a lacklustre approach to life, people get comfortable in average, do you really think that this is you at your highest potential, just know that you can do more.

There is no magic in success but it comes  only  from hard work, nothing will come to you without putting in the time and effort, move away from the way everyone else is living, you have to start acting differently, if you want to live differently, don’t act like everyone else. People make time for failure, but they haven’t got time for success.

The beginning of any project is the hardest because you are building something out of nothing, you are laying down the foundation for your future, the foundation must be strong so that no matter what happens you persevere and continue building until you are where you want to be. Don’t give up, the weak give up, stay consistent and make time for life-improvement every single day, allocate one to two hours of your day to success, if you don’t make success a priority how do you expect to become successful.

I dare you,If you want to become an entrepreneur you must get in the game, start something today with what you have, nothing is perfect in the beginning, improvements come about from failure, how do you expect to know what works and what doesn’t if you don’t start something. Reading, learning and researching are great on the journey of becoming an entrepreneur, however taking action is the best thing that you can do.

The  progress  that you and me can make,in terms of becoming an entrepreneur is to take action, that is what takes you from where you are, to where you want to be, get on the road of success.

Talk is truly cheap, people love to complain but when it comes to putting in the work they’re nowhere to be seen, people like to talk big, but they don’t get up and grind, people are deluded, they are living in a state of delusional insanity. Do you want to be like everyone else, make a choice today, average or great? If you want to see changes in your life, make some changes, if you do nothing, you get nothing. People who are serious get up and put in the work

Those dreams that seem unattainable became attainable through hard work, hard work will take you anywhere you wish to go, believe in yourself you can do this. Nothing worth having comes easy in life; don’t ever give up on your dreams.

Live a life of helping others and help to make a positive impact on the world, people assume they should just concern themselves with their own lives earning their wage, living without contributing to making the world a better place, we are all one people, some have been given more, and some have less, so the ones who have an opportunity to help others should take the opportunity to make a difference .Never look down upon people, who are not where they can be, we all have been at the bottom, advice is better than insults.

We all have been given gifts that we must utilize to create a better world, leave the world a better place then you found it, you have something special within you to offer the world. It is easy to just live the 9-5 life, but to live in the service of others is true greatness, to touch people’s lives in a positive way so that they don’t have to struggle in life, we are all capable of helping others to improve their quality of life

Don’t start a business to just make money, start a business to make a difference that will change the world, be a game changer and be bold, there are thousands of companies that are solely focused on just accumulating the most wealth, be different and do something that will elevate you up with the some of the greats such as Tony Robbins,Richard Branson,Abraham Lincoln, Mother Teresa, Martin Luther King, Ghandi, and Nelson Mandela. Start a business based on the vision of helping people and the money will follow, the priority is goodness, do good and good will come to you in abundance.

Start small, think big, work hard and never give up. Get up and go out there and change the lives of millions of people. Believe in yourself you can do anything, one person can change the world for the better if they are determined to do so. Find a higher purpose and live a life of meaning, don’t just waste your days and resources doing nothing, complaining and not moving forward. Life is too short to be a spectator.

I want to ask you this question, take your time to answer it:” What you are going to do to make the world a better place.” We all have opportunities in life, sad many a times opportunities come when a=we are least prepared and others seize them and have a stronger desire to accomplish than others have. Desire is the difference, how bad do you want to be relevant to life and mankind.

I want to hear from you how has your year started and share with me your plan and goals and how you making sure they become fruitful and real

2015 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 8,300 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
