Well, I don’t just know where to start this. Shall I start congratulating myself or express my profound joy and excitement for a job well done.

This has been exciting, rewarding, and successful journey and I sincerely feel on top of the world and highly delighted about the immense success of my journey.

This was as a result of a monumental effort and it only takes a stamina seldom demanded heart to accomplish this.

There were lots of pitfalls and at times I feel grossly incapable. Reasons have been financial difficulties.

However, if all reasons for trials were lumped together, one significant factor stood out like a sore thumb – lack of necessary support.

A person will never succeed if he/she does not possess the artful skill of passion and the techniques of his/her profession, as well as fortitude, perseverance, and a positive mental attitude

A great deal of sacrifice gone into this and I have discovered the key to success – which is honesty, integrity, trust coupled with proper and valid credentials.

Any success that a person accomplishes is in direct proportion to the contribution he/she makes.

If your contribution is meager, so will be the reward. If your effort is average, average results will follow.

If your contribution is exceptional, things will seem to happen like miracles – but they will not be miracles.

Success will simply be a result of a proper and worthwhile effort and contribution.

To all those struggling to get things done, this is to help you in your quest to succeed, to advise you of the proper approaches that will make your campaign more productive, to help you fulfill your dreams and finally to prepare you for the processes that follow in your next level.

However, to remain in the limelight of success and popularity is not an easy thing. One must not rest on one’s oars. Yes, to be frank, I even slept in my office many times.

Let me take this opportunity to properly acknowledge the many hundreds of persons whose motivation made this possible. The result of your effort has opened a channel of wealth and prosperity to those in need. The greatest gift is your daily motivation and the sharing of experiences and knowledge. I dedicate this to my late mother who raised me and every single mother who goes to bed with a single meal.

Thanks to you ALL!!!!!!!!

Am thrilled for you

Isaac, I could not help smiling as I read this post. From your previous journal entires, I know that you work very hard to help provide leadership skills to the women in South Africa and I am so happy to see that you have found your work to be fulfilling and rewarding. You have opened doors for so many and have mentored many leaders of tomorrow with your team. You are doing such important work and I applaud you for all your efforts in empowering women and youth. That is no small feat and I congratulate you on your success.

Thank you for your inspiring words and I look forward to hearing of the continued success of the Women's Business Center. Best wishes,

Oh, that is great news that you feel success at all your hard work! Congratulations! Many of us have been thinking warmly of your efforts so am glad you can feel like you managed to accomplish something.

It is so true that we need to remind ourselves that our efforts are what count most and we do need to give it our all and not just think I will start this and others can finish it, guiding it along is key, like you say. It is inspiring reading your post so thank you for sharing with us!

Hurrah Isaac!

Dear Isaac!! What joy. I remember meeting you so well for the first time at AWID. I knew then that you were a special and devoted man to the cause of women's empowerment. The world needs many Isaacs - can you clone yourself? How was the roundtable? Sounds like it went well!!
With great regard and congratulations,
