too-late (1)

Before it’s too late

You,
You were born for a purpose. You were born to make a difference. You were born phenomenal.
You aren’t an average. Everything you do is an average not because it’s average but because you made a decision, you made a choice to be an average. Why?
Because people  around you are average or maybe you grew up in an average environment.
So, you you decided to go against who you are. You aren’t living like you should live. You are not being who you should be.
You have never committed yourself to something. You have never seen what you could be if you threw your whole self at your dream.
If you quit however, it will last forever.
 You have to believe that something different can happen. He who says he can and he who says he can’t are both usually right. Most of people say they want to be successful but they don’t want it bad they just liked the idea. They don’t want it bad as much they want to party. They don’t want it as much they wanna sleep.Go deep in yourself and ask yourself who you are gonna be and how you gonna do it. Just decide.
It’s time for you
 to look within yourself and decide that I am in charge of my destiny. And when you decide that you are going to do it, life will never be the same again.
One day it’ll be your day. One day you gonna own a moment of glory, a  moment of success.
Before it’s too late..
Work on yourself and live your dream.

The story behind #SEEBusiness

The story behind #SEEBusiness

The story behind #SEEBusiness

Enactus mansoura has raised the hashtag #SEEBusiness for its recruitment campaign. At the early beginning you may guess that, that “SEE” means watch or find business. But in fact it doesn’t!

Every letter in “SEE” has its own meaning, as the following:

S ➡ Social

E ➡ Economical

E ➡ Environmental

As to work on a project, certain criteria must be applied. To serve this criteria, several aspects should also be served: ” Social, environmental and economical”  Even if you can not serve all of the three aspects, at least don’t impair none of them. Let’s talk more about the three aspects:


1-Social (commonly referred to as People):

This is also known as Human Capital. It really just means treating your employees right, and extending that into the community where your business operates. In this part of the triple bottom line model, business not only ensures a fair day’s work for a fair day’s pay; but also reinvesting back some of its gains into the surrounding community through sponsorship, donations or projects that go towards the common good.

 

2-Economic (commonly referred to as Profit):

The Economic element in the triple bottom line is about making an honest profit rather than making a profit at any cost – profit must be attained in harmony with the other two principles of People and Planet. However, it is equally true     that without people and the environment, companies would not be able to operate. This relationship between profits, people and the environment is what informs the triple bottom line concept.

In the past, many major corporations and policy makers frowned on the idea of having companies be accountable to people other than their shareholders.  However, a greater awareness about the environment and how people in and outside an organization work together to the benefit of each other has brought to the shore the importance of the triple bottom line concept. Today, many organizations have significant community and social responsibility budgets geared toward giving back to the communities in which they operate.

 

3-Environmental (commonly referred to as Planet):

This is Natural Capitalism A business will strive to minimize its ecological impact in all areas – from sourcing raw materials, to production processes, to shipping and administration. It’s a “cradle to grave” approach and in some cases “cradle to cradle” (i.e. taking some responsibility for goods after they’ve been sold)

 

The Triple Bottom Line concept has changed the way businesses, nonprofits and governments measure sustainability and the performance of projects or policies. Beyond the foundation of measuring sustainability on three fronts; people, planet and profits. The flexibility of the TBL allows organizations to apply the concept in a manner suitable to their specific needs.

Enactus Mansoura, a part of my life.


Enactus Mansoura, a part of my life.

Abdelaziz Boghdady, the EX chairman of the board of Enactus Mansoura. He was asked: “If you weren’t an enactus member, why would you join enactus?” and his answer was..

My motivation for applying to this organization is because of the unmatched value enactus places upon its people and the excellent self development opportunities enactus provides.
I believed that the only race I have to win is the race against myself, there will always be someone faster and stronger but there will never ever be another me, that’s why I urge anyone who want to be a part of this entity to push their own personal boundaries. Have the strength, the courage, and the confidence to pursue their dreams.
In every situation there is always something to be learned, and if we are able to take away the important lessons, we will eventually achieve what we set out to do.
A further step in my enactus career aspirations was becoming a part of its management. I believed that I have the drive, determination, and energy to succeed. I was willing to commit to the time and dedication needed to complete the mission.
I believed that being a part of enactus MU’s administration requires solid understanding of how to manage and lead, especially in the times of stress and conflicts, along with a deep perception of enactus’s concepts, and work model. And that’s exactly what I have been striving to achieve over four years of working within enactus Mansour University.
Being enactus Mansoura Chairman of the Board was a dream that turned into a tremendous honour and pleasure by its members’ dedication, a dream that turned into a great responsibility and non-stop exerted efforts…

In enactus, I found a real unique combination of high quality trainings and experience in international business..

I love enactus..
I believe in enactus..
