S.A. Quote: Business

“There is no doubt that world class businesses exist in South Africa and that ultimately they will attract a golbal following”

Tim Read as quote from the Penguin Dictionary of South African Quotations written by Jennifer Crwys-Williams

I have yet to sit down with a South African Entrepreneur (well, to be truthful – all entrepreneurs on a global level) who have not faced their own doubts and demons of why they originally decided to start their own business(es) … yet, in the same way, they cannot imagine themselves anywhere else – even if they try.

These individuals, icons in their own right – are each a building block on which the future of any country will be build or broken.

All great businesses started out as an idea, which grew into small businesses through the actions of those individuals who first got involved. Through their dedication and efforts grew into the success stories we read today.

When you look within your own community, it is not hard to find these iconic individuals and their businesses are not too far off from your own doorstep. Although these individuals have not been sanctified into celebrityhood as per yet – the proof of their impact and ripple effect can be seen in the communities where they have started… and could still be operating from.

However, these individuals and business do require the support of their community in return and that is where their local community plays the biggest role… and it is only through understanding and supporting each other that these individuals, businesses and communities uplift each other to new horizons.

Our wish for you, your community, your small business(es) is to be blessed with prosperity. May you all naturally create your own freedom, meaning and wealth!

S.A. Quote: Education

“When the history of this time is written, education could stand out as the factor which led our country to unity or it may signify the Achilles’ heel through which a troubled yet promising and beautiful country bled itself to a sad end.”

Franlin Sonn, as quoted from The Penguin Dictonary of South African Quotations written by Jennfer Crwys-Williams

Most parents week received those pieces of paper which state how their children performed in accordance with a standardised model of testing all children on their capabilities to perform standardised tasks… and once again a reminder of the classic cartoon strip…

You know – the one where there is seven or eight different animals (monkey, dog, fish-in-a-bowl, bird, elephant …) standing in front of a teachers deck in the middle of the bush with a solemn tree behind them, and the teacher states – “For today’s exam you will have to climb a tree…”

In the past 100+ years, everything around us has been improved. We have found and developed new ways to do everyday general things which we cannot live without… yet our education system is still based on training individuals to comply with a revolution that has almost been completely faded out of existence in our modern society…

Did you know the classrooms as we know them today is the same as it was when ‘formal’ education was introduced for all children at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution… to be trained to sit in rows (specific order – always the same seat, everyday) listen and completing specific instructions, in a set time, to be repeated daily and only be interpreted by a ringing bell to advise on the break times… Thank you, Mr Rockefeller & friends

And although so many things have changed, children in mainstream formal education is still taught information which has been scientifically proven incorrect 10/15 years ago, they are still not taught being taught how to build and manage wealth … yet society accepts these same children to walk out of school and be able to contribute to society.

And to think, these poor children also expect that there will be some sort of J.O.B. waiting for them when they are finished with school… yet for so many, this turns in to a nightmare, instead of the dream they thought it was going to be.

Yet when we look back into history today, we can clearly see how previous generations taught their children and where the masters and guru’s where different… and still we continue on a path of one-size-fits-all. Maybe we should really rethink this approach…

I sincerely hope that when the following generations look back at their history, they are able to see that we as humans are capable of learning from our own history and we can effectively implement changes in our education systems to suit the needs of the next generation … thus providing them with the advantage of a new foundation to build on – instead of crumbling ruins which they must try to mend and fix just to try to keep the roof up and the lights on…

For those who have already gone through our current education system – I bid you, continue your self-education by any means possible… for education provides you with knowledge and once knowledge is implemented it becomes a power in your own hands!

From our side, we provide you with the following to assist you in your own self-studies on how to naturally create your own freedom, meaning and wealth!

Or here are some of our friends and partners’ programs you could join

May you find the education you need to master living an inspired life filled with abundance and prosperity!

S.A. Quote: Beauty

“Could anyone really successsfully shield off beauty?”

Albert Luthuli – as quoted in The Penguin Dictionary of South African Quotations written by Jennifer Crwys-Wiliams

Beauty… beauty is in the eye of the beholder. The admiration of an object or person which ‘looks’ are pleasing to the eye and the mind of the individual who has acknowledged their own perspective of the object or person. But if the acknowledgement is one of admiration, why does it have to be shielded off…?

Why do we have to hide the beauty of things in order to protect them/it?

Why does it seem ‘okay’ for some to destroy beauty through their actions or even non-action…?

But how could we distinguish the beauty from it’s opposite the ugly … if it was not for the ugly, we could not acknowledge the beauty…

However, this in itself does not provide one to destroy the other … does it?

These days all you have to do is open a news channel timeline on any social media platform and within the first page, we find a story of another beauty that has been violated and/or destroyed by the ugly… And only in extreme cases do you find that there might be the mention of those who are trying to protect/shield the beauty from the destructive actions of the ugly, yet tomorrow there will be another beauty that has been violated by the destruction of the ugly.

We launch campaigns to create awareness on the subject of protecting the beautiful, we march and demand action to be taken towards its protection… we demand some sort of retribution as if it would erase the ugly form the situation … yet we forget that it is by our own in-action as a whole that gave rise to these circumstances in some way or form.

Maybe, we should just take a step back and refer back to nature… or rather nurturing and re-examen how we have been taught. May we should hold ourselves accountable towards each and every beauty and equally to each and every ugly … acknowledging their individual existence and leading them through our own example of how to appreciate each other. May then… just maybe two could exist in harmony without violation of either one…

S.A. Quote: Freedom

Perhaps the long walk to freedom knows no final destination

Breyton Breytonbach quoted from The Penguin Dictionary of South African Quotes by Jennifer Crwys-Williams

Freedom – what does this word really mean to you?

According to the online Etymology Dictionary … Freedom (n)

Old English freodom “power of self-determination, state of free will; emancipation from slavery, deliverance;” see free (adj.) + -dom. Meaning “exemption from arbitrary or despotic control, civil liberty” is from late 14c. Meaning “possession of particular privileges” is from 1570s. Similar formation in Old Frisian fridom, Dutch vrijdom, Middle Low German vridomFreedom-rider recorded 1961 in reference to civil rights activists in U.S. trying to integrate bus lines.

It has been said by some physicians, that life is a forced state. The same may be said of freedom. It requires efforts, it presupposes mental and moral qualities of a high order to be generally diffused in the society where it exists.

John C. Calhoun, speech, U.S. House of Representatives – Jan 31 1816

And that is just it… as Joh C. Calhoun stated in the abovementioned quote.

Freedom is an endless goal, a journey without a final destination – especially if you want to maintain it.

Very few individuals realise the amount of order that has to be in place for freedom to seem effortless. In all the interviews, research and analysis which we have gone through the past three years, all the data illustrate a tremendous amount of order which provides the seemingly effortless freedom.

And right there is where the hick-up in the system comes for most individuals… true freedom is coloured in a lot of hard (& smart) work, thus few take up the challenge, fewer have the discipline to maintain it … resulting in only the top 1-3 % of the global community truly obtaining this elusive holistic freedom. {Hollistic Freedom as inclusive of Financial Freedom]

Well, dearest – the joke is, it is all as a result of the BIGGEST Gift and downfall of the Human race, free will!

The only question you should be asking yourself is – what are you going to do about it?

Are you going to use your free will to accept your reality and perspective as it is right here and now…?

Or are you going to use your free will to change your reality and perspective to that which you dream it could be …?

Create your own Freedom, Meaning & Wealth – naturally!

S.A. Quote: Lifestyle

Simulltaneously, wwe have to cope with economic holocast and social Armageddon.

Mike Lipkin – Quoted from The Penguin Dictionary of Suoth African Quotations by Jannifer Crwys-Williams

This quote was published in the abovementioned book in 1994… and yet if you are a TV news watcher, you could be led to think this was said within the last few weeks.

For some, the reality of this quote has not changed since the date it was written, as this is their day-to-day perspective of the world we live in.

History repeating itself – a constant loop, effectively going on ‘Forever’… only because the generational cycle has not been broken, or rather changed.

Will the ‘good‘ ever overtake the ‘bad‘?

Or … is there a deeper realisation of balance underlying it all? A greater need for upliftment …?

At what cost will be?

And just to put a twist into the mix – is it all worth the fighting?

We are all part of the human race, all part of the universe, all part of life…

We are all connected and All is connected to us!

If there is no marketing, then you’re not going to get your market share!

– Bill Venter

More than 95% of Small Business does not make it past the first three years, another 95% of the remaining 5% do not last past the next five years…

There are all sorts of contributing factors influencing these stats… one of the key factors is marketing!

Without a strategy to co-ordinated marketing for your business congruent to your business goals, which can be recorded, tracked, measured and be reviewed if needed … how do you consider to get growth in your business?

One of my mentors kept on telling me…” Your social media must always direct back to your website. They are the map directions to get digital traffic to move through your virtual store…”

With this in mind… here is an eBook bundle which could assist you in your marketing – Audio & eBooks: Block Buste Cash Secrets

F.I.C. Book Review: 5 Insider Secrets to Marketing…

Marketing is a business art, not a business science, and the chief executive tends to shy away from it, delegating marketing decisions and responsibilities.

– Darryl Phillips (South African Businessman)

Marketing is, in my opinion, one of the life tools of a business, whether big or small … it is of vital importance to have some sort of marketing running for your business. However, as the quote above states – most business owners and/or chief executives, shy away from this.

In all my years in the financial industry and now the past few years in the coaching industry – I have come to realise more and more the truth behind this quote. The problem is that the business owner is so busy trying to make the business work while working in the business and completely forgetting the fact that he/she has to work on the business as well…
