English language brief summary

English language brief summary

Ever wondered how English with approximately 750,000 words came to be the wonderfully expressive and multifaceted language it is today? Unlike languages that developed within the boundaries of one country (or one distinct geographical region), English, since its beginnings 1,600 or so years ago, evolved by crossing boundaries and through invasions, picking up bits and pieces of other languages along the way and changing with the spread of the language across the globe.   Old English (450-1.100) The history of the English…

Power of social Media

Power of social Media

Entrepreneurs, young and old, are all jumping their presence online every day. Every other investor or entrepreneur one meets in a seminar or conference hands over his business card, which details the said person’s social media handle. From LinkedIn to Twitter and Facebook, not one is considered any less important from the other. Right said by Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg “When you give everyone a voice and give people power, the system usually end up in a good place.” Fuelling the…

Hollywood

Hollywood

Hollywood is the center of America’s movie industry. It is part of the city of Los Angeles, in the western state of California. In eighteen-eighty-seven, a man named Harvey Wilcox decided to sell some farmland he owned near Los Angeles. He hoped builders would put up houses there. Harvey’s wife thought the name Hollywood would be nice for the new housing development. She liked the sound of the word, although no holly trees grow in California. At first, Hollywood was…

Succeed, world-class health, internal fulfillment and sustained happiness don’t just happen. These elements of your best life are created. All too often we look at a human being playing their best game on the playing field of life and assume they got lucky or were born into their lofty condition. What we don’t see is all the devotion and discipline that went into crafting the extraordinary results we see. What I’m suggesting is that personal and professional greatness takes work….

Die daily

Die daily

Die daily. Give yourself to life. Take some risks. Open your heart a little wider. Speak your truth. Show your respect for the gift of life that’s been given to you. Shine brightly today. And then, wake up tomorrow and reach even higher. At the end, people will remember you as one of the great ones.

♥I fail more than most people. I fail all the time. I’ve had failures in business. I’ve had failures in relationships. I’ve had failures in life. I used to wonder why this happened. But now I get it. Failure is the highway to success. And the more risks you take in the pursuit of your dreams, the more you are going to fail. Too many amongst us live our lives in what I call “the safe harbor of the known.”…

Leadership

Leadership

’Leadership has nothing to do with the title on your business card or the size of your office. Leadership is not about how much money you make or the clothes you wear. Leadership is a philosophy. It’s an attitude. It’s a state of mind. And it’s available to each one of us. Here’s an example. I spend a lot of my life on airplanes and traveling so I’m hard on my luggage. The handle on my carry-on luggage broke after…

Appreciate

Appreciate

Some pundits encourage us to enjoy the moment and appreciate what we have, suggesting that constantly striving for more is unhealthy and the primary source of our discontent. And others say that, as human beings, we were built to push beyond our comfort zones each day and reach for something higher. I’ve struggled a lot with this issue, as I articulate a personal philosophy that I will live my life under. I think I’ve found the answer, a solution that…

Why wait

Why wait

Too many human beings postpone living. We say that we will live our best lives when we have more time or when we finish the pressing projects that are consuming us. We tell those around us that we will be more loving and passionate when things slow down. We promise ourselves that we will get into world-class physical condition and eat healthier food when we have a little bit more time. Yet, deep within us, each one of us knows…

Big question for you: “what are you doing to help build a new and better world?” Don’t blame the politicians. Don’t blame those around you. Don’t blame your parents or your background. Doing so is playing the victim and this world has far too many people playing the victim when they could be shining and making a profound difference. Mother Teresa said it so much better than I ever could: “if each of us would only sweep their own doorstep,…
