I don’t know much about politics but I know a little about raising a family and parenting children.  I reckon there are few differences between what’s required to run a harmonious, successful family and to run a harmonious successful country, or any leadership role for that matter. So I thought I’d list the basics here for consideration by all fathers but particularly for our President as he prepares to address us, the children of South Africa, on the state of our nation.

I’m a person who likes to try new things. These ‘things’, may refer to, food, music, entertainment, hairstyles, clothing trends or as many today would say, steez. However, there is one thing in particular that I’ve tried after 16 years activism, so to speak.

I was never a fan of fake hair or weaves or whatever they call it. I still don’t like it, but that’s a story for another time.

In all mortality, there exists innately and achely, an abiding need for a sense of meaning, significance and purpose.

As a product of what he seeks as answers to the afore mentioned, man has out of sweat, tears, theft, blood and any conceived and preconceived methodology that can find its possibility within the context of this now our empirical world; built himself monuments, empires, acquired wealth, fell in love and done all proclived works produced of his hands…

I am concerned of how many a young people in South Africa are unwittingly subscribing to the main stream culture which purports success and the principles that pertains to it to be just the acquisition of money and capital gain. I shall refer to it as a culture as I perceive it to be informing the values transmitted into society and a peoples’ general way of living through various proponents which include the growing Hip Hop music. I mention here Hip-hop because I deem it the main proponent of such a culture and most importantly arguably amongst the main influencers of South African young minds, but I am also aware that such a culture is not limited to Hip Hop as Hip Hop is but an art form, and art is informed by life.

It’s that time of the year again. We are eager to effect change in our lives.

The Goal Setting and Manifestation workshop is designed to show you what to change and how, in order to increase your goal manifestation success rate.

If you are tired of goals that seldom or never come to fruition, this workshop is for you.

A friend of mine once said “if we all had great jobs, worked hard and had the same amount of money, what would differentiate you from the rest of the masses”. Although it is the most asked questions, a lot of us are yet to find out who we are. When I am not working or doing my community service projects I read a lot which is why most of the time I quote other people. One of my favourite quote is by Mark Twain and he says that the two most important days in your life are the day you were born and the day you find out why. I however believe that, the day one does should also fall into that category because it is the day that people will honestly reflect on your life.

Doubter. Realist. Dreamer. Visionary, these are the four voices in our heads. The key question which we should ask ourselves: If we are committed to being successful, how can you put your dreamer and visionary at the helm on a day to day basis? Turn up the volume on the voice of the doubter, you are guaranteed to create more opportunities for greater success with much greater ease.

How many of us can stand up in a crowd and confidently say that we know ourselves and are living us. I am sure a couple of hands would go up in response to this question, but how many would be telling the truth, a small percentage I believe. People put on great facades, you would be surprised how many people play the game of charades because they are ashamed of themselves, they are too scared to be them for fear someone will tell them they are not acceptable the way they are. In my lifetime I have met so many people pleasers and suck ups…

2014 was an amazing year and 2015 looks to be even better but we need guidance here is my 10 steps for 2020 leaders

1. How You Think is Everything: Always be positive. Think Success, not Failure. Beware of a negative environment.

Your belief that you can accomplish your goals has to be unwavering. The moment you say to yourself “I can’t…”, then you won’t. I was always given the advice “never say I can’t” and I’d like to strike those words from the dictionary.

The past year had to be the hardest for my grind. I had to wait for a lot of things to happen and in my waiting I encountered a lot of pain and failure and I had to wake up dust myself and do better than I did. I didn’t let failure deter me from what I had to achieve.

Failure comes and becomes an encouragement for you to go further and run faster than you did the first lap. Success is a marathon that you prepare for all lifelong with studying, working and all the other things that you might do to attain your success.

I was born in Bostabehlo a township the south of Bloemfontein, in the Free State Province. When I was born my grandmother together with my mom and other relatives lived in a shack. Years later they got an RDP and that is where I was taught most of the values I know. The one important value I know of is not bad mouthing others or bad mouthing them. I used to do that as a kid, no knowing any better and my grandfather gave me a physical lesson (I can still feel the beating today)
