The Difference Between Good And Great | Good people do good work; the best they can get away with. On the other hand people who do great work do that over and above the expected and acceptable work.
A Key Talent | I would say it is my curious nature and critical thinking skill. I am always trying to find out why, how and what if.
Reading and reading about everything and I mean everything whatever I find interesting.
The Characteristics Of Success | I am open minded, a good listener, curious, I like people, I enjoy sharing with others what I know and what I have, I am not judgmental, I trust everyone’s good nature and give them a second chance even when they disappoint me. I choose to be happy and therefore do not harbor ill feelings about people. I believe many tough situations do not last forever – my motto is “this too shall pass”.
Principles I Live By | Respect for others, humility and believe are people are born good human beings and want to do good.
Critical Skills I Develop | Work hard, push myself, do better than is expected.
How I Use My Mind | I know for sure that there is an answer to everything that is a challenge; so I do no give up very easily.
When situations get hard and I cannot break through with people I know I have to change myself.
I am very analytical and spent a lot of thinking carefully about issues but I once got feedback from a boss that sometimes I take too long to act and I worked on changing that.
Lessons I Have Learnt | I have learned that the people we have a privilege to lead are capable of the success we dream for them.
Dealing With Doubt | I always have moments of self-doubt and great fear and in those times my faith in God helps me. I remind myself that He has not brought me this far to make me fail or make a disaster.
The Best Advice I’ve Received | It was a lesson from my grandmother to always say ‘thank you” and show gratitude. She used to say it is the 11th Commandment.
Advice On Building Wealth | There is nothing wrong with that goal but once you have the wealth what would you do with it? So be clear of how you intend to make a difference in others’ lives. Remember, however wealthy, rich or poor we will all end up the same way, dead and six feet under or simply ash.
