Believe in yourself

Believe in yourself

“In the work environment, innovation comes from great trust. From people having a voice. Fear inhibits innovation,” Susan Reily Salgado.
Success is inherent, but it is not handed freely; be prepared to pay a significant price complete with innumerable sacrifices to have your heart’s desires.
Self-edit, figure out your time and engineer your calendar every day and every week.

I suggest you leave an open space for thinking as well — immense power is acquired by assuring yourself in your secret reveries that you can do anything you set your mind to.
Categorically speaking, I am saying: be in control of your life, trust yourself better, you were born to innovate.
The saying is so true — a man who acquires the ability to take full possession of his own mind may take possession of anything else to which he is justly entitled.
Some people are hungry to action real transformation in the world. Why not you? Why wait?

What makes you tick, flourish and inspires you? That’s your calling right there. That’s your business. Just make sure whatever you want to do adds a lasting value to customers and society.
It goes without saying that Lesotho is a country, somewhat, recovering from uneven development and inequality. The country has huge opportunities and significant challenges.
There is something beautiful about those challenges: they give birth to a beautiful thinking; a constant desire to optimize and think about everything in a new way. That’s where a lot of creativity should come from.

There is something beautiful about ignoring all realistic constraints — Elon Musk has and now has a rocket company and a car company.
On a regular basis, imagine a world where there’s unlimited resources, what would you do? I was raised in a gender-neutral household, I am in awe of my late father, I always knew I was a girl but it never occurred to me that there was a limitation.

I guess that’s why I got obsessed with leadership. Because in my world it’s only a question of time and society evolving and adapting; rules are meant to be changed they are meant to evolve and adapt to society.

What I am basically saying is you do really live in a world where there is unlimited resources, where anything is possible.
You might as well, like Wright brothers, create your airplane. Forget about constraints, forget about force of gravity.
Don’t let your subconscious rear their ugly, snide head.

Focus on the indomitable human spirit to conquer all obstacles, the spirit that helps us laugh at our failures and chalk them up to experience.
Go deep on the idea that entrepreneurship is a solution to our problem in Lesotho. Next time, when you look at a man or woman who is wearing clothes that reduce them to gaunt, angular cipher of poverty remember that you a miracle they are hoping for. A solution to their problem. What then is stopping you from being an entrepreneur, doing what you love, and being the best you can be?
