Most children grew up listening to their parents’ monologue, “Study hard. Get good grades so that you can get a good job and become successful later on.” This is not surprising since all parents want their children to be successful in life. Some parents even take their achievement goals for their children to the extremes. It is a simple formula, study + good grades = success. Unfortunately, life is more complicated than that.
Whether we like it or not, challenges are part of our everyday lives. We will encounter challenges no matter how good, smart and careful we are. It does not matter whether you are a child, a student, an employee, a housewife or an entrepreneur; you are not exempted. Everyone has to go through them on a daily basis.
You are special. You have gifts and talents that are uniquely yours. All you need to do is to believe in yourself. Know that you are enough and that you have what it takes to be successful. Just let go of your fears and self-doubt. Be confident.
Message is simple. Love your body. Nourish it. Protect it. It’s the only one you got.

According to Socrates, the father of Western Philosophy, if you claimed to be a wise person, that itself made you unwise. For him, a true wise person is conscious of his/her own ignorance.
There are a million and one reasons why you should stay away from negative people. For one, it is hard to be grateful and happy when you are around them because they always see the bad side of things. Being with them is always stressful. They drain your energy. They are also highly contagious. They influence your thoughts, behaviours and feelings. Before you know it, you too, have become a negative person.
Reading books will make you grow as a person. You will have access to a vast range of information. It will entertain you. It will stimulate your creativity. It will also open your eyes to a new whole world that is different from your reality. It will make you dream and aspire to become a better version of yourself.
Failure is not the opposite of success; it is a stepping stone towards it. Failure allows you to learn so that you can be better prepared for achieving success.
We all know that we need money to travel. Some of us choose not to travel in order not to incur travel expenses. Others set cheap travel plans, while others take their time and save up for their dream destinations.
Aside from having a vision and a goal, you also need ignorance and confidence to attain success.
How we dress can affect our mood and our mood can also affect our thoughts. So if you want to feel and think positive, dress in your favorite clothes or the clothes that make you look and feel your best.
