Speaking for the world: Smooth sailing on the seas of success! The seas will be tumultuous at times and very calm at others. Your mission and you must accept it, is to prepare yourself for the changing of the tide. Here are some suggestions for you,
Gain wisdom, knowledge and understanding by associating with those who know more than you.
Rethink your priorities when time becomes a scarcity.
Avoid negative places, things and people.
Diagnose your bad habits readily and take steps to correct them.
Uncover your life’s purpose and you will live a happier life.
Achievement is nothing if not spiritually anchored.
Tap into your passion and work becomes play.
Expand your mind by reading, especially the biographies of other successful people.
Additionally, you are encouraged to:

- Keep a life preserver handy — believe in something greater than humankind but make sure you believe in yourself.
- Have a compass— set goals and be flexible while achieving them.
- Look for the horizon—remain positive and focused.
Weather the storm—ask for help when you need it. No man/woman is an island.
