Leadership starts with you. If you can’t lead yourself, you can’t lead anyone.
Kanwer Singh, professionally known as Humble The Poet, is a Sikh Canadian author, rapper, and artist.
Knowledge is power, but applied knowledge is better.
People are not living their lives because they don’t want to fail. They don’t want to embarrass themselves. People fail in life because they set unrealistic goals for themselves.
Do you know where you want to be? Do you know how to get there? Are you ready to start moving (if you are not already moving)?
Self-discipline is the foundation upon which success is built. Self-discipline is doing what you don’t like to do. Self-discipline is doing something right in the face of obstacles. Self-discipline is doing what is important, not what is urgent.
What is self-confidence? Why do we need it? Self-confidence means self-acceptance. It means you have positive feelings about yourself. It means you respect yourself, value yourself, no matter what. It means you are comfortable in your own skin. It means you feel good about yourself, no matter where you work, what you do, or where you live. In other words, self-confidence is unconditional.
There is no life without obstacles. No one has succeeded without facing obstacles. Sometimes what we call obstacles are not really obstacles, they are transit zones for you to think, plan, and move on. What happens to us is not an obstacle until we call it an obstacle.
