A clean street in Kigali City , Rwanda
You can live in a clean or dirty environment depending on your mentality. With scarcity mentality you will tend to do very little on the environment and the blame your failure on lack of resources. With abundance mentality you will have a positive approach to life and you will do all within your power to improve the environment. For sure if you cannot afford to the luxury of employees to clean your environment you will clean it yourself after all you are partly responsible for making the environment dirty. With abundance mentality , it is possible to overcome all the challenges around us.
Celebrate every achievement
If you develop a mentality to celebrate every achievement, you will work so hard to achieve success so that you can celebrate. Create a success celebration mentality and you will achieve whatever goal you aim at. I remember introducing in the firm I worked for a high tea at my cost to celebrate major wins and the staff worked so hard to achieve the wins in order to enjoy the high tea. The exercise became fun as win after win were announced. I had to ask the firm to meet part of the high costs as the wins became quite many for me to finance.
Always look at the light in the tunnel
In our life journey we will meet many challenges which we have to overcome in order to move forward. Every challenge has a soft part which can start with in order to deal with the challenge. The challenges may create darkness around you but always look for the light of the stars, glowing worms and singing of the crickets. In the process you will develop a determination to move forward following the light you have spotted.
