The pain of discomfort is the creator of change. Pain is a sign that something is wrong. It helps to make the necessary changes. The greatest nations today are the ones that used pain as a catalyst for growth (Malaysia, Japan…). The avoidance of pain brings about penury while facing it brings about change.

In life, you’ll need people who will help you navigate the troubled waters of time. Your assignment determines who your partners are and not the other way round. As much as you need friends, you also need coaches. Your coach is not your friend, he is someone who has mastered what you want to master because if you make the mistake someone else has made, you can be likened to a fool. Surround yourself with people who are smarter than you are. These are people who will improve your net worth within their network. People who need you should come to you, whereas, you should be pursuing those that are ahead of you. Always remember that if you are the best of your friends, then it is time to leave that clique and move forward.

  1. Iron sharpens iron…greatness is contagious…our environment truly has a great impact on our growth and development. Pain is not easy though…maybe that’s why so many of us don’t want to leave our cosy homes…
