“The most important thing in life is to stop saying “I wish” and start saying “I will.” Consider nothing impossible, then treat possibilities as probabilities.” – Charles Dickens

When was the last time you stopped and contemplated where life has taken you? Did you intentionally stop or were you just forced to stop by an unexpected circumstance?

Are you afraid of stopping because you know that when you do you will have to face your fears and self-doubts? However, how would your life be if you kept thinking and acting in the same manner?

If you want to live a better life but do not know where or how to start, then tune in to today’s episode. Dr. Ray Sylvester and I will enlighten you on the most empowering thing you can do to propel your life in the most astounding ways.

Dr. Ray Sylvester is a US-based professor who profoundly specialises in personal branding.

Start living an intentional and fulfilling life today.


⚡️ Being intentional is becoming conscious of the things that are important in your life.

⚡️ Negative reinforcements can sometimes lead to losing the will to be intentional.

⚡️ The art of stopping is a much more challenging task.

⚡️ Knowing and exchanging values creates harmony.

⚡️ Looking into the reality of where you are is the bravest thing you can do.

🔥 Stopping:

  • Helps you to become intentional, appreciative, and to be present.
  • Gives you room for growth.
  • Allows you to be contemplative.
  • Makes you open to creating new ideas.
  • Enables you to understand and know your value.
  • Gain perspective on yourself and others.
  • Empowers you to face your fears.
