“If you’re not reaching back to help anyone then you’re not building a legacy.” – Germany Kent

If you are only focusing on yourself and your life then are not building any type of legacy. Becoming successful is tough but nobody does it without helping other people. A life is only worth the impact it has on other lives so strive to make the people around you better.

“The greater the difficulty, the more glory in surmounting it. Skillful pilots gain their reputation from storms and tempests.” – Epictetus

If we were never challenged, we would never learn anything! You can pick up some of the most valuable lessons from your life’s challenges. You have a chance to become wise after going through arduous times. Look at it like school – The School of Life.

“A real girl isn’t perfect and a perfect girl isn’t real.” – Harry Styles

With all of the media we have today, sometimes love is portrayed in an idealistic way that is not really for anybody. People get ideas in their heads from movies, which were written to be perfect. Perfect people are not real and we need to realize that.

“Not knowing you can’t do something, is sometimes all it takes to do it.” ~ Ally Carter

It’s funny to think that you may accomplish things without even knowing that you couldn’t do it. It’s kind of like the placebo effect, but in reverse. If someone would have told you you couldn’t do it, maybe you wouldn’t have been able to do it. Think of all of the things you think you can’t do, and question why you think you can’t do them. Can you not do them because you know you can’t, or because you tried them and were not successful? It may be time to try things you once thought you couldn’t do.

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”- Dr. Seuss

Leaders are readers, no doubt about that. Reading helps you learn about whatever it is you want to know about. You can study up on an exotic travel destination, or a new method of doing business. There will always be those willing to share their knowledge with you, and this gives you a jump on the situation so you can have as much information as possible. Reading and learning really are the ticket to getting around the globe.

“In the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity.” – Albert Einstein

If anyone knows about this, it’s Albert. Every single challenge you face has something in it that is of value to you, should you choose to see it. It goes along with the saying about every cloud having a silver lining. Learn and grow from your troubles and you will only be empowered because of it.

“If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito.” – Dalai Lama

Even the most seemingly insignificant beings can make quite a difference to someone. Everyone you come into contact with gives you an opportunity to make a difference. Get off the couch and go make one today. Get started, work hard, and the differences you make in your life and that of others will only grow.

Uganda Travel Guide: My 7 Favourite Spots to Visit

If you are searching for a perfect relax spot far from the bustle of the capital, Munyonyo Commonwealth Resort located in an hour drive from Kampala is the best place to escape to. It has an impressive territory of green landscapes bordering with Victoria Lake (they just need to build a golf course here!). I’m in love with its beautiful pools which seem to be made for instagramming.

Если вы ищете идеальное место для релакса вдали от суеты столицы, Munyonyo Commonwealth Resort, расположенный в часе езды от Кампалы, – лучшее место, куда можно сбежать из города. Он имеет впечатляющую территорию с зелеными пейзажами (на этих лужайках так и хочется разбить поле для гольфа!), граничащими с озером Виктория. Я влюбилась в красивые бассейны курорта, которые, просто созданы для инстаграминга.

The food in Munyonyo’s numerous restaurants is one of the best I’v tried in Uganda so far. That is why many locals choose this resort for special events and wedding celebrations. My favourite dish was grilled fish from the lake. Delicious!

Еда в многочисленных ресторанах Munyonyo – наверное, лучшая из всего, что я пробовала в Уганде. Именно поэтому многие местные выбирают этот курорт для особых мероприятий и свадебных торжеств. Моим любимым блюдом была рыба на гриле, выловленная в озере. Потрясающе!

Apart from a great SPA, one of the most famous Munyonyo’s source entertainment is their collection of vintage cars. I couldn’t resist taking pictures with an old Rolls-Royce, but there’re also many antique options from Uganda’s colonial times.

Помимо великолепного спа-центра, одним из самых знаменитых развлечений в Munyonyo является коллекция винтажных автомобилей. Я не смогла устоять перед фотографией на фоне безупречного роллс-ройса, но в коллекции есть также много старинных машин времен колониального периода в Уганде.

Fancy a swim? Head straight to Africana hotel in Kampala. It’s a great spot to chill near a pool. I enjoyed spending my mornings here while getting a healthy tan with a glass of fresh fruit smoothie in hand.

Хотите поплавать? Вам в отель Africana в Кампале. Это отличное место, чтобы расслабиться у бассейна. Мне нравилось проводить здесь утро, получая здоровый загар со стаканом смузи из свежих фруктов в руке.

Banana bar is a good place to meet with friends for a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. I used to head here after a swim at Africana. I wouldn’t suggest having a snack here, as the food is not at the top. But for a quick cappuccino fix in the afternoon there’s nothing better.

Бар Banana – отличное место, чтобы встретиться с друзьями на кофе или бокал вина. Я заходила сюда сюда после заплыва в Африкане. Я бы не советовала здесь перекусывать, так как еда не на высоте. Но для быстрой капучино-паузы во второй половине дня нет ничего лучше.

Entebbe Botanical Gardens were founded in 1901, offering an introduction into Ugandan wildlife. It’s a home to 300 species of plants, 200 of which are exclusive to Uganda. A walk there is restoring for the soul and educative for the mind! If you want to see them in a movie, go for ‘Tarzan’ from 1957!

Ботанический сад Энтеббе был основан в 1901 году, и это лучшее места для знакомства с дикой природой Уганды недалеко от Кампалы. Здесь произрастает 300 видов растений, 200 из которых характерны исключительно для этой страны. Прогулка по саду – словно медитация для души и накопление знаний о природе для ума! Если вы хотите увидеть сад на экране, скачайте фильм «Тарзан» 1957 года!

‘Che Passa’, a Mexican hang out in Kampala, is a meeting point for everyone in the city: on weekend nights you literally cannot find a place here! The cocktails are amazing: make sure to order some Margaritas to be followed with tacos! Otherwise, the Sky bar of the Mariott hotel. It’s the chicest place to watch the capital’s panorama at sunset. The interior, the view, the cocktails, the staff: everything is at top level. On Sunday you can find a great brunch and live music here.

‘Che Passa’, мексиканский тусовочный бар в Кампале, – место встречи для всех и вся: по вечерам в выходные дни здесь буквально не найти места! Коктейли потрясающие: обязательно закажите Маргариту, а затем тако! А на романтический вечер отправляйтесь в бар Sky при отеле Мариотт. Это шикарнейшее место с лучшей панорамой на закате. Интерьер, вид, коктейли, персонал – все на высшем уровне. А по воскресеньям здесь готовят отличный бранч.

For a calm Sunday, head to lake Victoria. The ‘2 Friends Beach Hotel’ is the right place for a lazy weekend off the city. The atmosphere is relaxing and homey. I highly advise to have a burger for lunch here: they are outstanding!

Если вы хотите провести спокойные выходные, отправляйтесь на озеро Виктория. ‘2 Friends Beach Hotel’ – подходящее место для ленивого уикенда за городом. Атмосфера расслабляющая и домашняя. Я очень советую заказать бургер на обед: они здесь потрясающие!

“One word of sympathy can heal the thousand wounds of heart and soul.” – Anonymous

One word sympathy can carry a lot of weight. One word of sympathy can heal the wounds of many hearts and souls because of the meaning behind the word. If you choose your sympathy wisely you can make any situation more positive.

“Hard work without talent is a shame, but a talent without hard work is a tragedy” – Robert Half

Some people work hard but have no talent and other people have talent but do not work hard. These are both sad situations, but the person who realizes their talent and doesn’t work to maximize it is a very sad and discouraging sight.
