‘Invest In Yourself’

Yvonne, you are not ordinary but Extraordinary’ and that is what I tell myself daily and I Stand by that Affirmation!

Why, I hear you ask? I have always this deep desire to make a change in the world and be successful in all I lay my hands to. And defining Success can be quite relative?

So what does Success mean to You?

Success starts with being hungry. I have always been hungry for success I guess all my life but got somewhat distracted along the way until I understood the principle of Self-Belief and Affirmations. Sometimes, it helps to talk with and to ‘self’ – do refer to an old blog-post titled ‘Be the CEO of Your Life!‘ about how affirmations can help your mindset to achieve even the impossible.

Instead of being all bitter and mad at words said to you; turn that around as motivation. That should be your power. Go out there and say: I’m going take this and do something with my life. I’m gonna better myself. I want to better my condition. I need to break the negative cycles that are going on in my house with my family and everything around me. The power of positive words is amazing to a mindset.

We all have heard the saying: ‘If at first you don’t succeed; try, try, try again.’ And that is the daily mantra in my household! The word ‘can’t’ is not allowed to exist at all. The word ‘failure’ is banned as I
believe you allow yourself to fail – the power is all in your hands. Hence the phrase: ‘Failure is not an Option‘ is constantly repeated when negative thoughts or doubt sets in.

Part of my 2017 manifesto was to change my environment settings and surround myself with things and people that will help bring out the best Yvonne that lies within. Hence the famous quote: Your Network is Your Net Worth!

I tell people all the time, that success is a race and most times, it’s not about coming in first place. It’s about finishing. It is about keeping your word. It’s about being loyal. And just knowing the most important investment that you could make in this race is in yourself.

So what are you waiting for? What is holding you back? Go ahead and make that most important investment – Yourself!

    I agree, the one thing about success is that you have to stay hungry. The hunger for success is what keeps you motivated even when you fail.
