Welcome to the world of "WHY NOT"

There are a whole bunch of people looking like they are doing things to better themselves and their situations. They are making all the right movements, but in reality all they are doing is treading water. Sure they are staying afloat, but they aren't moving in a forward direction. "Stretch 2 Succeed Foundation" aims to grow a community of people who wants to keep moving forward in life. Because remember "If you are not willing to risk the unusual you will have to settle for the ordinary"

As we worry about many things the following thought will keep us grounded: 

Nothing is permanent except change. We know that things have changed and are changing everyday even in our real life. If we see last 10 years and compare it with today, they are not the same. Similarly things in next 10 years would be dramatically different, just the thought of it can excite someone who are in pace with the change or ridicule someone if they are stand still. 

What we keep worrying about (past) is already gone, but it has given the most important thing which is called "learning and experience" good or bad. And we can learn from both and use this as a basis to plan an action plan to achieve our deepest desire in next 2 to 5 years. As we know the time machine is going to move, whether we moved ahead or not is entirely upto us TODAY.

Daily discipline

Having a purpose driven Goal 🎯 powers your day. Your mind directs your thought in the direction of "the things to do today" to get closer to your weekly / monthly goals. A person without a goal WAIT for luck & miracles to happen, a person with a goal CREATES his luck everyday.
Success is easy for anyone, following a daily discipline is hard for most. 🏃🏻🗓📚
Inspiration from the book "Law of success" by Napoleon Hill.

Importance of environment:

Napoleon Hill in his book Law of success writes: 
"Ambition and desire either come from birth or can be created through the "environment in which we live", our daily associates are an important part of our environment to progress or regress. If the present environment you live is not encouraging then change it. "

I talk to many young adults popularly known as Generation Y, they have lot of energy and to some extent they have ambition and desire too, but they do not have access to an environment where they can dream more, where they are encouraged to thing big, plan ahead and take action. Many times they just go with the flow with their existing associates and 10 years later they find themselves in a job or profession they are not happy with. They hate it everyday. Why,, make a shift,, Wake up & live an outstanding life.

Just as the great fundamental laws of life are wrapped up in commonest sort of every-day experiences that most of us never notice, so are the real opportunity often hidden in the seemingly unimportant transactions of life.

Many times we ask this question, why am I not where I want to be, how can I form a team, how can I be trustworthy and be an exemplary Leader? Here is an excerpt from Lesson on Initiative & Leadership from Napoleon Hill in the book "Law of Success" written in 1928.


What does Leadership consists of? What must I do to become a leader?

What are the attributes of Leadership and how can I cultivate them?


Answer: Leadership is a composite of a number of qualities, most important among them are:

1. Self-Confidence (know your business, know yourself)
2. Moral Ascendency ( you are maintaining higher moral values, physical endurance & vitality than people you are going to lead)
3. Self-sacrifice (work while others sleep, take responsibility for you and your men, you are dream driven hardest worker compared to others)
4. Paternalism (watchful care for the comfort and welfare of people with you)
5. Fairness
6. Initiative (those who take initiative lead)
7. Decision (deciding and standing by it)
8. Dignity (self-respect, show better discipline to your men by being punctual, on course, better appearance & look)
9. Courage (be bold and taking responsibility of your act)


To lead you must know!!

Know your men, know your business, know yourself!!

The Power of One

“Always in life an idea starts small, it is only a sapling idea, but the vines will come and they will try to choke your idea so it cannot grow and it will die and you will never know you had a big idea, an idea so big it could have grown thirty meters through the dark canopy of leaves and touched the face of the sky.' He looked at me and continued. 'The vines are people who are afraid of originality, of new thinking. Most people you encounter will be vines; when you are a young plant they are very dangerous.' His piercing blue eyes looked into mine.' Always listen to yourself, Peekay. It is better to be wrong than simply to follow convention. If you are wrong, no matter, you have learned something and you grow stronger. If you are right, you have taken another step toward a fulfilling life.”

Growth  comes by breaking the barriers and barrier often a time is insignificant and internal". Each and every one has their own set of barriers, barrier could be giving up something, barrier could be not having clarity of the goal next year to 5 years, barrier could be what others think, barrier could be the average content type thinking. Two things are fairly important to surpass the barrier and go to the next level:
a) Knowledge of the next level, what is the next level in your journey to predetermined success level
b) What is the barrier, what is stopping you?
