  • There will also be unforeseen challenges in your way to reach the summit of your vision, and their cumulative effect will really test your resolve.
  • If your vision is true and your passion strong, then you will be able to cope with setbacks and return stronger and more determined to succeed.

Take strength from adversity.

Take strength from adversity.

Rewind, accept and have faith

Rewind, accept and have faith

When things are not going your way, embrace the principle of RAF to get you through:

  1. Rewind and go back to your mission, picture success and hold this image in you mind. This activity will move you out of the negative state and refresh your mind to get you back "on purpose".
  2. Accept that things will not always go your way. Avoid long drawn out dissections of why things turned out the way they did. Accept and move on otherwise negative self talk will hinder progression.
  3. Have Faith in yourself and your ability to achieve what you want out of life. Bouncing back when things go wrong is far easier.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone
