Your job is to act, not judge.

 

The seeds we plant can sometimes grow much beyond us. Your job is to not judge the seed. Your job is solely to plant. In life, your job is to say yes. Say yes to the opportunities that come near you.

I took on many leadership roles growing up, never really knowing why I was in those positions, or why. But whatever the opportunity, I tried to make the most of it.

This gala I was honored to be hired to be the keynote speaker is one of those Yes moments I never forget. You see, this event came out of a necessity in my second year university. I was in the biosciences program full time and the wrestling team full time with no time for a part time job, and I had $0 left. I was coming from foster care and asked my social worker if there was any funding that could assist me, as I couldn’t work, while training and studying full time. She looked into it and reported back, not really. I asked why not. She said, there really had not been anyone in your unique position. See at that time,...

Just Lean In!

Growing up in Africa and having dreams. Never realized one of them would include being chief of my Village one day.

There is pride in being uplifted to a position by the people. They put their trust in you, they’ve chosen you to represent them. They’ve entrusted you with their children and their children’s children.

Life will test you anytime you get elevated. But perhaps it is more of a preparation than a test. The teacher must make sure you are the one. The journey requires intestinal fortitude and it comes with a cost.

Many will not shoulder the burden, but those who do will emerge stronger. I often yearn for an easier path, but I also understand that to whom much is given, much is expected. Life’s challenges develop big shoulders, and right now I’m loving my shoulders. The bigger the ask, the bigger the cost. Accept it. Pay the cost, it’s the only way. It’s like sports. Those who are the best were willing to make the sacrifice.

Many do...

STOP CHASING THE MONEY

STOP CHASING THE MONEY!
Throughout my athletic career, we trained 2-3 times a day 5x/ per week. The tasks were repetitive, making literally the smallest of changes from day to day to our technique, mindset, body, strategy, etc.. This went on for years, months, weeks, days. How did we not lose our minds? We literally did the same thing day in and day out. What carried us through? It took a while to answer this question. I would venture to say it was the passion for the craft. There was natural enthusiasm towards the task. I remember I could practice for hours, go and watch videos to look for new techniques or ways of improving my errors, then go to sleep, get up in the morning and repeat with passion. There was such an excitement in the smallest of improvements. The art took on it’s own form. I was no longer doing wrestling, I now was a wrestler. At this stage, I was giving everything. I was investing all with joy. Joy came from giving it my all. Joy came from the...

It Takes Guts to Leave the Ruts!

ugo ugofit ugohp May 04, 2019

“It takes guts to leave the ruts” - was a saying I heard years ago.

When you decide to go to another level in life, it will take everything you have. You will be tested in every way possible. You will be forced to grow. You will have to decide many times over whether you want to keep going. Your mind will play tricks on you. You will have to have resilience beyond measure. People will not believe in you. Many times you will not believe in yourself. You will feel alone, misunderstood, etc.. You will have to sacrifice for unknown periods of time .......

BUT if you DECIDE ... that you will find a way to grow, to rise, to honour yourself through every adversity, every doubt, and to believe in yourself and your purpose when no-one else but you does.

And decide to overcome every obstacle in your way.

If what you are after is true in your heart - IT WILL BE WORTH IT!
