Q 1

2019 sure is going by in a whoosh!

Appreciate what you’ve achieved in the past three months. Remember, comparing yourself to others will make you feel despondent.

Learn from them by all means but do not for one second think you are inferior because of some material achievement they’ve got and you have not. No two journeys are identical.

Focus on your growth and approach the next quarter with renewed zeal. 2019 will be a great year for you and you and you in shaa Allah.

With Love,

Oumissa,

Tenacity : The Making of Success

Founder of ScaleMyHustle , lawyer, investor and global entrepreneur, @Mochievous received great news today. Her paper on innovation which had earlier been turned down was accepted by the World Bank for its 2019 Conference on Land and Poverty. Her joy was palpable as anyone who has toiled over something similar can testify to.

This has great impact and inspiration for all young people especially young women. News like this encourages them to believe in their dreams, keep working through defeats and sustain confidence that they will succeed. As if one could not be happier to see such heartwarming news, she goes on to offer two lawyers a chance to research and co-author the final work. Way to go! Sharing the spotlight and giving talent some opportunity is a crucial way to hasten development across groups.

Congratulations Moe!

Too often, we are afriad of taking the next step in our professional , academic or personal life. We must remind ourselves that if we do not try, we will not find out the amazing things we can accomplish. We effectively deny the world of value when we hold back and let fear keep us in a state of limbo. Worse we let rejection dampen out optimism and then we stop.

So please do it and don’t rest until you win.

Start Writing Today!

Don’t complain that you have no ideas. Just start. Look around you, there is so much to write about. Scenery, experiences , overheard conversations, dreams, happenings around the world, the list is endless.

Write to escape, to make sense of life, to feel better, to channel your anger and other emotions. Write to teach and inspire. (I love this word so much it’s part of my brand name).

Take these ideas and create something beneficial and useful. It’s your talent/ability/skill. Use it to add colour to life, to give unheard people amplification,to bring issues to the front burner, to shut out the noise and bring quality.

Put pen to paper….Your fingertips to your keyboard and write away! P.S.- when you notice I am in a writer’s block….Please remind me of these words.

Let’s do this together. Have a great day.

SpaceX Launch – A Triumph of Innovation

This photo right here about to beat that iconic Neil Armstrong’s.
Yet another reminder that ideas flourish in an enabling atmosphere. (all shades of pun intended).

By making space exploration look so cool and fun, Elon Musk has inspired millions around the world. He made history by sending his other invention, a Tesla with a mannequin into orbit .You know when you achieve and everyone- even your haters- respect you.
That’s the level of success we must try to attain. The type that makes humanity proud.

I N S P I R E
To all the kids who get bullied for being a geek,nerd or whiz, keep believing in your dreams and never stop working to make them true. For when they do,the world (and space too!) will watch you shine.

N O S T A L G I A
I kind of understand how the Apollo ’69 moon landing must have felt like. I was obsessed with space as a kid and for a while I wanted to be an astronaut. This is so exciting!

Please share your thoughts about this amazing event.

P.S Thanks to @bonsaisky for gracious permission. Follow him on Twitter.

Stay Positive

We spend too much time on how things do not go well.
This gives rise to discontent, sadness ,resentment and envy.

Move away form that. Set a goal to bring out a lesson from every experience, a positive aspect in all things and grow faster!
