Working hard to succeed and be a champion
September 4, 2011
sir, i'm a student with two university programme and also working, married with children. What are the tips i should implore to success as a champion in all? Ur programme is interesting and encouraging.

You are certainly doing much to further yourself and your family. I am sure that you are highly motivated to succeed. And that is a very important factor.
It is important to be able to manage your time, so that you are able to take care of all your obligations. However, you also need to take a short amount of quiet time each day just to relax and reflect. That is necessary in being more effective in things you do.
Set a specific long range goal, as well as short-term goals. When you achieve a short-term goal--like finishing an assignment--you can congratulate yourself and know you are on the way to achieve your long range goal.
Knowing you are doing your best in taking care of your family and in moving forward in school means that you are on your way to being a champion.
I hope these ideas help. Best wishes for success in your endeavors.
I want to join your school.
August 11, 2011
I want to join your coach class or school.
esau - Nigeria (21880)

How can a fulfill my dream?
June 26, 2011
How i can fulfill my decision?
Shaf'e mo,alim - Somalia (21762)
If you set a goal of something you want to do and then make a decision to seek that goal, you start to move forward on the process. However, many people soon give up.
The best way to fulfill your decision is to write down what your goal is and what you want to achieve. Put that goal in a place where you can see it, as a reminder.
Then make a list of things you have to do to achieve the goal. In this way you will be focused and will move forward to fulfill you dream.
Request stories of ordinary people succeeding
June 16, 2011
I would like to request for newsletters(biography) of ordinary people defying odds and becoming great people doing extra ordinary things particularly turning their ideas into solving every day problem.
Selorm - Ghana (21731)
That is a good idea. We will try to start giving more stories of ordinary people succeeding and doing great things.
We do have a page called Success Stories where readers send in their successes. However, we will try to find some extraordinary success stories.
How to forget the problems in my life?
June 12, 2011
How to forget the problems in my life and to how to decrease anger and jealousy ness towards others and how to be alone to my self without friends and be success in my life
Nandhu - India (21710)
Spend some time looking over your achievements and accomplishments that you have done, as well as the abilities and skills that you have. They do not have to be anything big or outstanding. Instead, they should be things that you can be proud of. Even something as common as learning to use the computer and the Internet is an accomplishment and a skill.
It is good to make a list of all these things, so that you don't forget them.
Realize that there are people who cannot do the things you can do. In fact, it is helpful for you to realize that you have a lot to offer other people.
Problems are challenges to overcome. They can make you stronger. A person without problems becomes weak. In fact, some people who seem to have so much often become unhappy on the inside because life has no meaning to them.
When you do things and complete goals, congratulate yourself for the achievement. That is what success is all about: you do your best and are happy about it.
Anger and jealousy only tends to discourage. Use the success of others to inspire you to do your best.
You have the potential to be great. Don't let negative thoughts about others hold you back. Look at your skills and experiences and move forward in life. You have the potential of being a champion.
I sometimes lose hope in life
May 17, 2011
i sometimes lose hope in life because of the family i live with its nt legitimate to me
manqoba - South Africa (21591)
It is good to try to accept what you have and look at the best side of things.
Although the family you live with may not be legitimate to you, try to be grateful for what you have.
If your health is good and you have some friends, those are also blessings in your life.
If life is a struggle, that only makes you stronger.
Best wishes for the happiness you desire.
Should add spiritual aspect to success
May 3, 2011
About: 'Success Secrets of the Motivational Superstars'
Excellent and anybody could appreciate the amount of pain and efforts gone into churning out something like this. Kudos. Further, I would like to add a word of caution to all these principles is the ability of the individual to perceive these principles in the right perspective, by being able to do a realistic SWOT analysis, which would not be complete without considering the Spiritual aspect( not to be confused with religious aspect). Whatever be the effort-be it a thought, word or deed-if it is not entrenched in righteousness, one cannot escape from its consequences, as it is the general human nature to be blinded by one's own passion or conviction without doing a proper moral check, by self justifying that 'the ends would justify the means', only to be left in the lurch at the fag-end of one's life to sadly realize that life was not spent properly. Thus, we can find almost 99.999% feel totally dissatisfied with life, besides the incalculable damage caused into the society and world. Your 8th point 'Don't Delay' is an excellent reminder that we don't have time, implying that there is no time for 'half-baked approaches'.
Truly a nice work. Best wishes and Prayers
Ravindran - India (21546)
Thanks for your feedback and ideas.
It is true that many articles on success techniques seem to only emphasize personal improvement and material gains, the spiritual aspect of success it important. A well-rounded life requires not only positive attitudes but character and spiritual health. Our sections on Character and Spiritual Health address those concepts.
How can take 100% control of my life?
April 13, 2011
In a country like Nigeria where am living that i have to depend on my mother for money and food in order to go to school. This is because school time would not permit me to combine school with work. do u really think i can take 100% control of my life? waiting for ur reply. thanks
Lawal - Nigeria (21478)
It is good that you are furthering your education. You are also fortunate that your mother is able to assist you at this time. Appreciate her efforts to help you have a better life.
While you are taking your classes, look for the types of jobs available where you can use your education and be able to be independent, as well as to help your mother. It is good to talk to people for advise on jobs you can do when you graduate. Often others will point you in a direction for a good job.
Realize you are on the road to success. Do well in school, get a good job, become 100% in control in your life, and then give back to all those who helped you.
Best wishes in your success.
Sexual thoughts and masturbation distract me
March 6, 2011
sexual thoughts and masturbation always distract me although thinking to control
drlawrencebando - India (21300)
It is natural for a healthy person to have sexual thoughts. If unable to have a mate for sex, some use masturbation to provide relief from the sexual and glandular pressure. However, excessive sexual thoughts and excessive masturbation is unhealthy, just as an excess in anything is unhealthy.
How can I improve on life?
February 10, 2011
How can I improve on life every single day like this?
Ishaq - Uganda (21176)
See Formula for a Good Life. Some of the ideas may help you.
Best wises on improving your life every day.
Start to forget to plan may day
February 5, 2011
Good Evening Sir/Madam
My question is on the issue of getting my day planed at the night before the day. For me i can do that but it is for a while and then i will no more do it again and i could not be able to figure out what the problem is all about. Pls i will like u to conceal me
Chigozie - Nigeria (21151)
That is a common problem that people have. Many people can plan their day, and it works fine, but soon they forget and stop doing it.
Since I said to list only the three most important or urgent items, it makes it easy to finish those three. When you finish the three, celebrate and congratulate yourself. Then you can move on to other things you want or have to do. By acknowledging your success, you reinforce how worthwhile the process is, which encourages you do repeat the process.
After doing it on a regular basis, soon it will become a good habit or routine.
I hope these idea help. Best wishes in have great and productive days.
I am getting too lazy to get out of bed
January 12, 2011
i really lazier in getting up at bed, so what can i do in order that i get up quickly from bed?
bukerebe - Tanzania (21010)
If you have something to look forward to, you will be anxious to get out of bed. Even looking forward to a good breakfast can motivate you.
Reasons people do not want to get out of bed includes such thing as they have stayed up too late or because they hate going to their job.
A good thing to do is to plan on three things you want to do the next day, before going to bed. In that way, you will be anxious to get up to do those things, especially if they bring you rewards or personal satisfaction.
Life in Africa is tough
December 4, 2010
am working for a cleaning company and am getting $50 per month but am worried of how to move on life in africa where life is tough and full of tears yet am accompanied by many things to handle like looking for my little sibblings among others.advise.
ssebagala - Uganda (20796)
Ideally, you would like to do a job that you are good at an enjoy doing. However, the job must also be one that pays well. Have a dream of what you would like to do and what levels you would like to reach. Always be aware of opportunities to move in that direction.
Even in countries where life is tough, there is a need for various services and products. Companies provide what people need. Workers provide what companies need.
Realize your skills and knowledge and try to fulfill the needs of your employer or some other.
You have ambition, and that is a great start in becoming a successful person who can help support his family.
I am always thinking in negative way
October 13, 2010
sir,i am always thinking in negative way. I can not control my negative thinking.so as a outcome i fell down from the studies.The mainly Dystychi phobia.so what can i do?please tell me.
sivakumar - India (20530)
Dystychiphobia is an intense fear of something that poses no actual danger. If you are always thinking in a negative way, you may be considering things as problems that may not be problems.
If you think of something in a negative way, examine that and ask yourself, "If this is true, what is the worst thing that could happen to me?" Unless something was so dangerous that you could be killed or seriously injured, most things are not that serious. So then you can think more positively about them or simply ignore them.
Also, if you are thinking negatively that you will fail your classes, so you don't do you homework, consider whether you are simply making an excuse because you have set your standards too high.
It is difficult to stop thinking negatively, but it is worth the effort to catch yourself when you do think negatively and remind yourself that there are better things available.
I hope these ideas help. You know you have a lot of potential, so do not let bad thoughts spoil that potential.
How can I be energetic in my work?
September 24, 2010
How to be energetic in my work?
Ravinder - India (20433)
If you your work is something that you truly enjoy, you will tend to have more energy and actually be anxious to go to work. Although it is difficult to find such a job, it is something you should always be seeking, because usually what you like is also what you are good at doing.
However, if your job is really not something you enjoy, you can still find things about the job that are enjoyable. Perhaps, you have some friends at work that you may enjoy seeing. Another thing is to have some activity or hobby outside of your job that you look forward to doing. That anticipation can give you energy.
Finally, being in good physical condition, including eating the proper foods will help you with your energy.
