Take a glimpse at the future, don't look back!

Soon it will be 2010 and 2009 will be history. As Alex Haley puts it “In every conceivable manner, the family is link to our past, bridge to our future”.

Ask yourself did you meet your plans or resolutions this year? And what were the major obstacles? For best answers always listen to your inner-self and consult with people you Trust.

Let us look at USP (Unique Selling Point). Have your ever done a self evaluation and gotten your USP? How did you use that something in you to make a positive impact in someone’s life (anyone)?

Something to remember for the faint-hearted, everyone has got the potential to achieve anything in life provided if you have the Desire and Faith in yourself.

Take time and reflect back and focus on the future, how can use your USP for even better results in 2010? Soon it will be World cup and believe me or not, if we had started planning and saving 10 years back we could have seen ourselves in South African in some few months to come. I know this is somehow vague and it is tied to many factors, but the point here is, we shouldn't be afraid to Dream and desire what we want to achieve or even who we want to become in future. You should always have courage and believe in yourself. On the other hand you can always make a long term plan for example, where do you see yourself in the next 4 years to come? Fear is part of the human emotion but it can be controlled by none other than YOU.

There is always light at the end of the tunnel, my short story growing up in the slum area was not an easy task with an arrays of vices surrounding my environment ranging from diseases, poverty, pollution etc. But I haven’t stopped there despite the environment wasn’t favorable for learning or aspirations in life, and I know somewhere out there in the World someone might be in a worse situation than mine but if you put your heads as TEAM you will always sail through, be it in a community club, family, peer group etc.

The rule of the thumb as the famous saying “charity begins at home” let us obey, respect our parents and in cases of difficulties let us give dialogue a chance before pointing fingers.

Before I conclude close your eyes and ask yourself this question;

- Is there anything that you could have done better?
- Are there any steps that you made towards the betterment of yourself and others?
- Being a young person how did you deal with the challenges in life 2009?
- And if you didn’t do this before, what is your USP (Unique Selling Point)?
