DON'T SETTLE FOR WHAT YOU HAVE

Potential is always present waiting to be exposed. It demands that you never settle for what you have accomplished. One of the greatest enemies of your potential is success. God wants you to maximize the potential he has given to you. You are not yet what you are supposed to be though you may be pleased with what you now are. Don't accept your present state in life as final, because it is just that, a state. Don't be satisfied with your last accomplishment, because there are many…

Back home again

Well, i'm home again since September the second and i still have to get used to it. My visit in Somerset East has made such a great impression it's still hard not to be around my new friends. Going to university again and meeting my friends from here in Holland has made it a little less hard to cope with but still can't stop thinking of my experiences in Somerset. I keep on thinking: "Are they still working on the computers? Are they building on their futures? What will become of…

What is the meaning of football?

Young lads are special and just watching them playing, one can see that they are innocent souls. And these young lads are easily influenced by what they and they cant make decision at their own. They are looking for someone who they can trust, a family member, a friend and a mentor like a parent. I have being hanging in the informal settlements for long and it is similar to the farm lifestyle where I was born and what I see is most young lads copy their parents' lifestyle and other people 's… Continue

Youth Zone Experiences

So it's 1803 here in the UK, and my flight back from SA landed at 0515 this morning.  Meaning I am pretty tired!  But I wanted to write something about my experiences with the Youth Zones, and the value of the work they are doing with young people in the communities in which they operate.

 

So far I've been lucky enough to visit Youth Zones in SA (Cosmo, Soweto and Mogwase) plus those in Zimbabwe and Mozambique.  Each visit has impressed me, I think the holistic approach the…

Mogwase CSI Day

It was a great moment to see managers, coordinators and directors from ABI branch in Rustenburg sacrificing their day by coming to Mogwase and hang out at the school, painting the classes and netball court and interacting with everyone. My highlight of the day was me being inspired by our nowadays ladies climbing the ladder for the greater heights and becoming leaders in their companies and still down to earth. Thank you to Sesi Nono  and ABI for the donation of air conditioners for the…

Life-Skills

The soft skills we normally learn as children or pick up along the way can change the course of history.

How a person communicates, how one reacts to criticism or in a situation of conflict-can have great consequences. Leaders are skilled in two areas: managing their own lives and managing their relationships with other people. Just as we need to learn and practice football, netball or basketball skills, so we have to practice our life-skills.

One of my golden rules is: “never…

Loyalty and Honesty

For sure in life there is nothing better than self honesty and being loyal to oneself and to others. And is definitely sad to leave under self-deception and illusion. Is like chasing the wind. The true warrior is the one who does what is right, just and fair and have a good heart and motives when no one is watching. To be loyal and honest to one 's commitments and work hard. And to remember one reap what you sow and nothing in life shall go unseen, even if doesn't come now but it will come one… Continue
