A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step! I am glad to welcome you to the first edition of New Kulture magazine. Newkulture started with a single step- a dream! The magazine was born out of excitement, hope and the desire to inspire.
Our mission at New Kulture is to bring the extra into the ordinary life, to inspire you, our readers to live your best life, whoever you may be. We are excited to be on this journey with you. We pledge to inform honestly and inspire you in building your business and rising in your career, in your interpersonal and intrapersonal, organizational relationship, in mental and physical health, in food, fashion and beauty, tourism and information technology.
This very first issue has truly been a labor of love, hope, disappointment, good writing and eye opening into the world of publishing. The team of NewKulture magazine have truly been God sent, leaning in with support, contribution, encouragement and enthusiasm. I can not say thank you enough to everyone who helped.
We have on our team, experts who are kind enough to contribute their talents and time, to bring their expert advice to you, on how to manage your career, build a successful business, have clean mental and physical health, we have shopaholics who would tell you all about shopping online and offline, on how and where to get bargains.
The end of an era has come and another begins. The pain of yesterday is today’s strength. The big lesson for this edition is Gratitude! What are you grateful for in your life? In my life, I am grateful to be alive, to have breathing space and beautiful scenery that inspires and keep me wanting more. I am grateful for the people God placed in my life. I am grateful for where I was, and where I am now. My victories and my failures have shaped me into the woman I am today.
One of my favourites saying is that we live once and we should take advantage of that while we are alive. What is needs changing in your life? What are the things you need to do less of and more of?
It is perhaps that tome. The New Kulture team is excited to be on this journey with you.
The theme of the first issue is reinventing yourself. I have learned from personal mistakes and failures that whenever you want a second chance all you have to do is go for it. There are many things in life that seems to be holding us back but truly we are the only ones holding ourselves back. Before you go out to pursue your second chance take an inward look at your life to see what is truly holding you back like issues with past. I had to overcome some powerful feelings of anger, pain, fear of success, fear of failure and procrastination! Apart from the internal issues we maybe dealing with, there are external issues that seems to be holding us back from achieving our goals like our weight. Open up to the many ways of reinventing our lives.
I was reminded many times while trying to publish this magazine, lack of finance and in the midst of discouragement that nothing good comes easily. Are you ready to make sacrifices and have perseverance in your everyday life? If you are life will surely reward you with success!
There is always a room for reinvention and change means reinvention. It may be out of love for yourself, or you seek redemption and second chances as your life desperately needs changing.
Most often when people think of reinventing themselves, they think of the most obvious: outside appearance. A simple change in hair color, change in style, and friends is labeled as reinvention; however, true reinvention resides deeper within, sometimes we need to take a step back and analyze our inadequacies. Reinvention is not always easy. It is a conscious effort. We have to take control of who we will become or risk never reaching our full potential. You don’t have to wait for the future to find you. You should start building it now. To reinvent, consider what you value, Rediscover your interests, Embrace your personality, scrutinize your skill set, Develop your brand
Then, no matter what you feel in the moment—lonely, self-critical, tired, lazy, or disappointed—do something to maintain momentum, even if it’s one small thing. There’s an old adage that says that true courage isn’t about not feeling fear; it’s about feeling fear and acting anyway.
