Road to success EP16!

Mathew's Road to Success:

NameMathew Marlon Sissing

Occupation: "I'm a Partnership Specialist for a Global Marketing Agency & a Marketing student in my second year, aiming for an MBA (Masters in Business and Administration). Oh! and I'm the blogger of this site's boyfriend lol."

Goal: "My goal in life is to die empty. In other words, every talent, principle, value, smile, tear, laugh, scream, helpful hand, honest opinion, cent stored up, invested time, genuine cared for emotion, loyal expectation, loving soul and every emotion, thought, creative vision, every muscle etc is totally exhausted. I want to be buried knowing that every ingredient God has added into my soil and soul is 100% used up. I want to be a jack of all trades and leave a legacy behind for eons to come."

What is success? "Success for me is to be worry free in every aspect and sector of my beautiful life. Success for me is to never stop learning, because life never stops teaching us lessons. Success for me is teaching the things I've learnt to people that aren't aware of the lessons because success, is not an individual thing, its an ambiance that the hungry and ambitious surround themselves in. Yes I am responsible for my own success, but it would be selfish if I don't share my success formula, as a result, that makes me successful. "

What is your success? "My success is to be my sons first hero and my daughters first love. My success is to be my wife's 2IC (2nd In Command) to God, to be her second protector, second provider, second source of happiness, her second love, her second earth, wind, air, water and fire. My success is to be the the futures answer to politics, technology, economy, social development and most importantly, let every living soul see God through me."

All the best on your road to success Mathew...

Occupation: "I'm an almost qualified teacher for grades 4-9."

Goal: "My goal in life is to be happy in anything I do, I hope that as I age I don't become money hungry and lose sight of what I love."

What is success? "Success for me is setting goals and reaching them, success is when you can look back and say 'that was tough but I got through it', success is doing what you love and earning money while doing so."

What is your success? "I would like to achieve all my successes and hopefully when I'm older, more successes will be added because I will have a husband and a family to consider too."

Goal: "My goal is to translate my dreams to their financial and physical equivalent."

What is success and what is your success? "Success is a ladder, many who try to climb it, fail and never get to try it again, the fall breaks them. Some are given the chance to climb, but they refuse, they cling to Gods, Love, illusions. Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is."

Road to success EP13!

Mikaela's Road to Success:

Name: Mikaela Eleftheria Frangandonis

OccupationSales Executive

Goal: "Personally, I don’t believe in setting goals. I feel that if we set goals, we put limits on our true potential. Instead, I set milestones, which are significant stages in the development of something - because ultimately, there is always room for improvement, always room for more.  I want to be the voice of the unheard, I want to positively change lives through journalism, and my milestones for life lie in making a wondrous impact on as many lives as God may bring to me."

What is success? "In the world as we know it right now, too many people believe you only reach success when you have money. Success to me however, is when you are beyond content in where you are, who you are, and where life may take you. I don’t believe a person is at the point of success only once a set “goal” is reached. If everyday you wake up and are happy with where, what and who you are RIGHT NOW, then you are a success."

What is your success? "My success is to be happy in all that is my life. The impact I make on others will result in this happiness. For every milestone achieved, is a step in the direction of my ultimate success."

All the best in your road to success Mikaela...


Road to success EP12!

Brian's Road to Success:

NameBrian Kariithi


GoalTo get a Nobel Prize for Medicine/Science.

What is success? "Success to me is more than just reaching a goal, for me it's about successfully being able to get pass the obstacles in your way to reaching that goal. I call it leveling up. It's like playing a video game, every level gets hard as you go and the success lies in beating every level, not in reaching the end."

What is your success? "I want to be a father to my kids one day, a good husband to my wife one day, the top professional in my field and be able to love like Jesus loved. If I achieve such I would probably think that I have achieved all."

All the best on your road to success Brian...

If you focus on success, you'll have stress. But if you pursue excellence, success will be guaranteed.
-Deepak Chopra 

When you make a choice, you change the future.
-Deepak Chopra 

Prove them wrong!

To be honest I've never been the type to care what people say or think, but sometimes it brings great joy to prove someone wrong. That moment when someone is like "You can't do that." or "You'll never be rich or successful." or "You're not that smart and that requires someone with brains (which all of us do have)" or "You'll fail, don't try it."... Literally that moment when you like, Just because you said that I will prove you wrong and succeed! We all have at some point proven someone wrong, our teachers, lecturers, parents, friends, coaches and sometimes even proven ourselves wrong. 

You have to stop believing you can't and just do it, just prove them wrong. It's an amazing feeling, for real, not only because you achieved whatever they said you couldn't ACHIEVE but also to just say "I DID IT, i SUCCEEDED!!!"

Occupation: "I'm a data capturer and I'm call centre based."

I also believe in hard work, if you don't do the work you can't expect results... Mainly I believe that ambition drives success, so if you have no ambition and no passion for anything you won't succeed in anything."

What is your success? "To be successful in my career."

What we think, we become

Hello Giants


Beware of your thoughts. They have the power to break you down, tell you that you are not worth it and that you'll never be successful... Or they can have the power to uplift you, help you grow and succeed in life.

  • Choose wisely and don't let just any thoughts in. 
  • Positive thoughts always!
  • Think success and you shall be successful... Think you can and you will!

Buddha Quotes on Thinking

Positive vibes good people!

10 Life Changing Tips Inspired By Deepak Chopra

Hello Giants

I didn't know of Deepak Chopra until my boyfriend told me about him and to check him out so I did. He is an author, holistic health/New Age Guru, licensed physician and champion of alternative medicine. Impressive right?! He helps and hangs out with many celebrities such as P.Diddy, Lady Gaga and many more. So I stumbled upon this article on and thought I would post it to help with our road to success!


10 Life Changing Tips Inspired By Deepak Chopra

1. Let Go

“Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way, ask if you want to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future.”

2. Nothing Is Impossible

“You must find the place inside yourself where nothing is impossible.”

3. Embrace the Unknown.

“Even when you think you have your life all mapped out, things happen that shape your destiny in ways you might never have imagined.” 

4. Go with the Flow

“Don't try to steer the river.” 

5. Embrace Stillness

“In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside of you.”

6. Live a Conscious Life

“The way you think, the way you behave, the way you eat, can influence your life by 30 to 50 years.” 

7. Find Your Purpose

“There are no extra pieces in the universe. Everyone is here because he or she has a place to fill, and every piece must fit itself into the big jigsaw puzzle.”

8. Let Go of Your Ego

“If you want to reach a state of bliss, then go beyond your ego and the internal dialogue. Make a decision to relinquish the need to control, the need to be approved, and the need to judge. Those are the three things the ego is doing all the time. ”

9. Embrace Your Current Relationships

“Whatever relationships you have attracted in your life at this moment, are precisely the ones you need in your life at this moment. There is a hidden meaning behind all events, and this hidden meaning is serving your own evolution.” 

10. Be Open To All Possibilities

“Even when you think you have your life all mapped out, things happen that shape your destiny in ways you might never have imagined.”

You cannot have the same outlook on life as you did the day before, week before, month before or year before... Something needs to be different. You learn something new each day therefore your outlook on a specific thing will differ from before and day to day, so learn each day, change your view, grow, do something different! We are all on the road to success, you cannot have success with the same old view. You learn, you grow, your view changes, your outlook changes...

Growth is one of my keys to success!

Road to success EP6!

Sheilla's Road to Success:

NameSheilla Nyaboke Chepkorir Nyandiko


Goal: "Still trying to figure out what my goal in life is. I should know by the end of the year. However, in life,  my goal is to change people's lives in big and small ways. I want to be someone that carries hope wherever I go. With my talents I want to bring a message of the good news of the Gospel. I want to become more and more of who God wants me to be." 

What is success? "When I think success, first thing that comes to my mind is big house and lots of money and my songs being famous(I write songs).
However I believe there is more for what shall it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul? So....although the image I have just depicted is, unfortunately, the image many people have of success, I believe it is too far fetched. It is good to have all this money and glitter, but to me, success is rising up after you have fallen, overcoming challenges and having a dream in which you focus on every day and once your dream materializes, for me, that is success."
What is your Success? "The success that I want to achieve in life is to be the best that I can be. For me to inspire. For me to raise up those who are down. To shine the light and to point people to the way. I have dreams-dreams so big that I get scared.....I get goosebumps imagining it all. God being the wind beneath my wings, I want to do things that He would like to be done on earth. I will be His hands. I will be His feet. So my view of success is very eternity orientated. And if riches come with it....I will not complain. May He help me by making my dreams come true. My dreams are a lot. Mainly they involve music. Yeah.....success.....I want to get to that land.....I can see it from this mountain on which I stand. And now I am going to cross the river using my failures as stepping stones. Carrying self discipline, faith and with God helping me, sooner or later, I will eat of that beautiful land."

I would just love to add that Sheilla is a classmate of mine, we both study medicine. She is a beautiful soul inside and out! I learn so much from her... God bless you Sheilla. 

All the best on your road to success Sheilla...

Impossible Quotes

Monday, 14 April 2014

Giving up is never an option.

Hello Giants

I sometimes wonder how things would be different if I had chosen to stay down after every fall, give up after every rejection and failure and how different things would've been if I had stopped trying and persevering and pretty much LIVING to reach my goals and purposes. 

It's so easy to give up, it really is. It's even easier not to try... But you know what makes NEVER GIVING UP so worth it? The fact that once you reach your goal and you look back, that feeling of achievement and that 'Yes I made it", the rewards for the hard work make it that much more worth it.

So I challenge you today... Keep persevering, keep on pushing, stay determined, remember your goal and why you actually doing this, get back up every time you fall, do your very best and KEEP ON KEEPING ON!!!

Peace. Happiness. Success

Road to success series!

I woke up with an awesome idea yesterday... The ROAD TO SUCCESS SERIES

Okay so not your typical series for sure but what I have in mind is to basically interview a whole bunch of people, Family, Friends, Boyfriend, People I know and anyone else who is interested. The reason I think it's such a brilliant idea is because each of us have our own roads to success and paths we have to take to get to our purpose, goals and wishes. 

There is no 1 version, route, step, advise etc. to success... there are many ways and many reasons as to how you'll get there (and obviously your reason for wanting your success). 

So I want to bring different views and maybe yours is similar to someone else's that you can learn from. We all have our own success we want to achieve and by learning from others success, following their footsteps and hearing what they have to say, then eventually all of us will reach our destiny of success!

Enjoy the series.

I believe in you guys and keep taking those steps closer and closer to your success!

Food for thought: Being busy will not necessarily bring you success

Hello Giants

My boyfriend sent me this email yesterday... I literally thought it was insightful and a real eye opener. I don't know where he got it from but it must be from somewhere. These are not mine or his own words, if anyone knows where this comes from please let me know. Hope it helps you guys too.

This is what it said:
"It is a fact that the most successful people in the world aren't busy. Success and busyness are not related. Have you noticed how people feel so guilty when they aren’t busy, and how they often try to look busy? Just about everyone likes to be busy or prefers it that way. We all have to change that life pattern.
In our minds we seem to confuse being busy with achieving. Our efforts to keep busy seem to be replacing our drive to be successful. Perhaps we feel that if we keep busy, at some point our efforts will magically bring success. Or perhaps we keep ourselves busy to take our minds off thinking about other things. 'Busy' is one of today's most overused words. We hear all the time, 'I’m too busy,' or 'I don’t have time.' How often do you actually achieve results while you are busy? Not too often. Switch your focus from being busy to being productive, so that you can accomplish more, see tangible results and have time for fun. Most of us dream of a calm, peaceful and successful life, which is quite the opposite of a busy life.

Being busy is what happens when we find ourselves adrift from what really matters in our lives. Being busy is what happens when we find ourselves working to the values and goals of others.

Keeping busy takes people away from their own thoughts and visions. It takes them away from working toward their own success or purpose. Busy people have little time to consider ‘the big picture’, they are busy working on a little piece of a puzzle without knowing where or whether it fits.

What happens when we are busy?
- We stop talking to people.
- We stop listening to others.
- It takes time away from other important things.
- It takes time away from other important people in our lives.
- It negatively effects our health.

Tao master, Chuang-tse, tells this interesting story ... There was a man who disliked seeing his footprints and his shadow. He decided to escape from them, and he began to run. But as he ran along, more footprints appeared, while his shadow easily kept up with him. Thinking he was going too slowly, he ran faster and faster without stopping, until he finally collapsed from exhaustion and died. If he had only stood still, there would have been no footprints. If he had only rested in the shade, his shadow would have quietly disappeared.

For all of us, it is easy to fall into the trap that says, 'Because I’m busy and a hard worker, I’m productive and will be successful.' This is not true. Not everything we do will lead to success. Covey showed me that success isn’t about doing enough things. Success is about doing enough of the right things.

Let’s take a look at what we can start doing today so we can increase our productivity and become more successful:

- Start everything knowing what you want to have achieved by the end of it.
- Always do the highest priority things first.
- Focus on the important stuff, not the urgent.
- Focus on one task at a time until it is done. Stop multitasking, it reduces productivity and increases stress levels.
- Manage your email and social media more effectively. Constantly interrupting tasks to check emails and social media reduces productivity. Set times during the day for checking email and social media.
- Take regular breaks throughout the day. People who take regular breaks throughout the day actually do better quality and more productive work.
- Learn to say 'no' more. Many people often find it difficult to say no to things, even if it impacts on their own priorities. It’s okay to say 'no'. It will stop you taking on less important stuff at the cost of your priorities.

Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first 
four sharpening the axe. - Abraham Lincoln "
Peace. Happiness. Love.

Number 1

Hello Giants

Who knew being successful in this life and world would be so difficult, stressing and time consuming. But I've learnt that nothing in life comes easy especially something you want most and therefore explains why there are so few successful and rich people out there. It's because they persevered and never gave up and the rest of us fall and pretty much stay down. Rules of success: ALWAYS GET BACK UP!

Peace. Happiness. Success.
