‘It is in the ring where one is bloodied and bruised, but it is also in that same ring where the victor is applauded. I will press on!’
Success was never designed for the frail of heart nor the timid. It is something that most of us will have to fight for with all of our might. And once you’ve got it, you may still need to fight to keep it. Success is not for the weak. It is for the brave. It is for the dreamer. It is for the believer. Success demands blood, sweat and tears, because it knows that success won easily often leads to success easily lost. However, success won through the heat of battle will make your victory sweet and your success appreciated. Do not despise the fight. For from the darkness will arise the light.
Laughter is medicine. It heals ills and sustains sanity.
Learn to be able to laugh at yourself and your circumstances. Don’t laugh at another’s expense. Fill your home with laughter. Fill your workplace with joy. Steer clear of the crude and the rude. There is so much more to laugh about if you use your imagination. Timing is crucial when it comes to laughter, but with practice you will master the art. If you need practice, hire a comedy video and lock yourself in a room where you can let loose with a huge laugh from the depths of your being. You’ll notice the difference. For he or she who laughs lasts.
Here’s a cartoon I did recently that was printed out as a large poster for a client Tough Glass in Australia. I’m sure it will help their workers become more successful in a short time!
They kindly let me reuse the image here and on my website – hopefully it will help you become more successful too?
1. Being on Time
2. Work Ethic
4. Body Language
8. Being Coachable
9. Doing Extra
After reflecting on these attributes, I realise that you get most of these from me if you commission any artwork! 🙂
This cartoon is poster size A2 which is 59.4cm wide x 42cm deep. Ideal for training staff/colleagues to be more safety conscious.
Some of the health and safety hazards include: hanging broken ceiling lights, dirty greasy extractor fans, cobwebs, dirty extractor filter, guy picking his nose, dirty clothes/uniform, pool of water on floor – slip hazard, twisting with heavy item, extremely hot chip/fries fat, workers messing around with knives, caution wet floor sign knocked over, pool of water by overflowing waste bin, rats near food waste, worker with chicken pox, cockroaches, cleaning meat slicer while still switches on, blocked fire exit, fire blanket hanging out of box, changing light bulb while stood on table, pet cat on work surface…but there’s plenty more!

The good news for you is that when you know how to
create an abundant, positive mindset yourself, you
can achieve ANYTHING you want — whether in life
or in business!
All it takes is a simple formula:
No.1 — Set out your intention and goal
No.2 — Make yourself attractive to that which you
wish to attain or achieve
No.3 — Use visualizations that involve all 5 of
your senses to see and feel the outcome that you want
No.4 — Take some action — even if it’s small! —
to put the ball in motion
Before you know it, you’ll have ANYTHING you can
What crazy ideas are your working on?
When you try to go 10% bigger, you have a ton of competition,
when you’re trying to go 10x BIGGER…you are going it alone.
By doing so…you begin with a clean slate, a clean sheet of paper
and approach the problem differently, radically, and methodically.
You don’t have a legacy that you are dragging into the present.
WITH HUGE GOALS – it’s hard to fail completely.
When you go after a moonshot, something that is 10x bigger…
you are out there on a limb challenging yourself.
You begin asking yourself different questions, such as…
Why can’t I accomplish my 10 year goal in 100 days?
Is there really anything stopping me…other than myself?
So, if you were going to do it, how would you get it done?
What system would you need to develop or use in order to
accomplish your 10 year goal in 100 days?
This is the one I recommend. It’s the best there is.
Use it to finish the year strong!
Best wishes, Richard
P.S. If you’re excited about the idea of achieving your

Pain may sometimes be the reason why people change. Getting flunked grades make us realize that we need to study. Debts remind us of our inability to look for a source of income. Being humiliated gives us the ‘push’ to speak up and fight for ourselves to save our face from the next embarrassments. It may be a bitter experience, a friend’s tragic story, a great movie, or an inspiring book that will help us get up and get just the right amount of motivation we need in order to improve ourselves.
With the countless negativities the world brings about, how do we keep motivated? Try on the tips I prepared from A to Z
A – Achieve your dreams. Avoid negative people, things and places. Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
B – Believe in your self, and in what you can do.
C – Consider things on every angle and aspect. Motivation comes from determination. To be able to understand life, you should feel the sun from both sides.
D – Don’t give up and don’t give in. Thomas Edison failed once, twice, more than thrice before he came up with his invention and perfected the incandescent light bulb. Make motivation as your steering wheel.
E – Enjoy. Work as if you don’t need money. Dance as if nobody’s watching. Love as if you never cried. Learn as if you’ll live forever. Motivation takes place when people are happy.
F – Family and Friends are life’s greatest ‘F’ treasures. Don’t loose sight of them.
G – Give more than what is enough. Where does motivation and self improvement take place at work? At home? At school? When you exert extra effort in doing things.
H – Hang on to your dreams. They may dangle in there for a moment, but these little stars will be your driving force.
I – Ignore those who try to destroy you. Don’t let other people to get the best of you. Stay out of toxic people the kind of friends who hates to hear about your success.
J – Just be yourself. The key to success is to be yourself. And the key to failure is to try to please everyone.
K- Keep trying no matter how hard life may seem. When a person is motivated, eventually he sees a harsh life finally clearing out, paving the way to self improvement.
L – Learn to love your self. Now isn’t that easy?
M – Make things happen. Motivation is when your dreams are put into work clothes.
N – Never lie, cheat or steal. Always play a fair game.
O – Open your eyes. People should learn the horse attitude and horse sense. They see things in 2 ways how they want things to be, and how they should be.
P – Practice makes perfect. Practice is about motivation. It lets us learn repertoire and ways on how can we recover from our mistakes.
Q – Quitters never win. And winners never quit. So, choose your fate are you going to be a quitter? Or a winner?
R – Ready yourself. Motivation is also about preparation. We must hear the little voice within us telling us to get started before others will get on their feet and try to push us around. Remember, it wasn’t raining when Noah build the ark.
S – Stop procrastinating.
T – Take control of your life. Discipline or self control jives synonymously with motivation. Both are key factors in self improvement.
U – Understand others. If you know very well how to talk, you should also learn how to listen. Yearn to understand first, and to be understood the second.
V – Visualize it. Motivation without vision is like a boat on a dry land.
W – Want it more than anything. Dreaming means believing. And to believe is something that is rooted out from the roots of motivation and self improvement.
X – X Factor is what will make you different from the others. When you are motivated, you tend to put on “extras” on your life like extra time for family, extra help at work, extra care for friends, and so on.
Y – You are unique. No one in this world looks, acts, or talks like you. Value your life and existence, because you’re just going to spend it once.
Z- Zero in on your dreams and go for it!!!
