Written by a motivational speaker main message – believe in yourself, you are enough. Remember when you are a child you knew this, now as an adult you may forget this.
Take action, don’t just talk about it. In particular, do things that take you closer to your dreams.
When you do something that doesn’t work, do something else and if that doesn’t work, then do something – keep repeating this process and don’t give up.
We always overestimate what we can achieve in a year, and we always underestimate what we can achieve in a moment.
You will have no shortage of critics and detractors, the more powerful your idea, the more detractors you will have. Rejoice in knowing it will be these very people who, when you achieve your dream, will come to you and say, ‘I always knew you would do it.’

Jobs for life are reducing in number, your present organization may seem like your world, it isn’t, and if you are made redundant believing that it is, that is what you will feel, redundant. This is more likely for people who work to make themselves indispensable by clinging on to their job role, and responsibility over others.
The keys to future success are sharing, collaboration – the ‘we’ being far greater than the ‘I’.
Knowledge is no longer power. Relationships, leadership and teamwork are today’s power.
