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!

Meaning: Our Judgement of Others

When you meet a man, you judge him by his clothes; when you leave, you judge him by his heart…

This is a Russian Proverb that had me thinking… How many times in life have we looked at others and judge the way they live or even envied their lifestyle?

But … is that which we are seeing really the lifestyle you would want? Is that lifestyle really so glamorous and without care? Or is it a case of abundance in one part of their life and lack in another?

We should rather take the time to investigate and question the individual directly before judging. 99% of the time our perceptions and judgements are completely incorrect. I have met and worked with millionaires, that has not brought themselves a new outfit or vehicle for the past ten years. In the same breath, I have also met and worked with individuals on the verge of bankruptcy that were driving the latest model of their favourite brand vehicle and wore only the latest fashion trends … but in all cases, the story behind the perspective or is not always a story of a true heart, but rather a lost and wounded soul.

Thus – a word to the wise … don’t judge any book by its cover. The pages might be torn and the cover might be tattered … but the story from cover to cover might just stun your mind and make your soul bleed. Whereas the latest release, still on the shelve neatly sealed in the bookstore … is not worth a second read.

For that matter, do we want to be judge on others perspective of us, instead of the true, naturally authentic individual inside … Just think about it

To our continued success,

Financial Independence Coach Show: Ep2 -Testing format and recording

Stepping into a new project can be daunting, especially when it is a completely new arena. Yes, I have been on YFM … but those three sessions was two over the phone and the one in the studio was not even 10min long. Taking these steps into talk radio is a challenging and existing adventure. After episode 1, we decided to record the full session, to be able to post it on our YouTube channel and start getting content follow there as well. For me, it is a way to measure my personal performance for myself.

When you speak to those who know me intimately, they will tell you that I am actually an introvert. Although I have learned … and mastered the skills to be an extrovert, to the extent that almost everyone I meet is convinced of the fact that I am an extrovert, I am an introvert by nature and nurture.

So much so, when I requested a few close friends, clients and family to review the following recording … one of my friends/clients told me that I am being a hypocrite… a hypocrite? … for preaching to him about being your natural self and here I am being … well an introvert, not my lively, bubbly, energetic and all most overbearing self.

Truth be told … sitting in the studio for me is like sitting in my “cave” enclosed in my research, my studies, my creative process and just following the flow of my natural thought process to come to solutions and resolutions. Admittedly, that is not what this show is all about and should we wish to achieve the aim of this show, I will have to change the structure and my presentation. Ultimately this show is for you, the listener, to assist you to move forward. TO enable you to naturally create your own freedom, meaning and wealth!

Michael, thank you for your honesty and brutal feedback. I promise I will adjust the content to reflect the other side of my personality as well…

Without further delay, here is episode 2 of our new show on BrandLive.co.za

With gratitude,

Financial Independence Coach Show Ep1: Test Run …

A journey of a thousand miles starts with (the first step) one step … a Chinese proverb.

I have read this proverb about a million times and every single time I decided to go head-over-heels into something this proverb rings true in my mind.

Who knew when I went to the coffee meeting to discuss education and coaching, I would walk out with a radio show…  In fact, I was even only informed afterwards, who it was that I went to see…

Thank you Samm and BrandLive for this absolutely brilliant opportunity!

The beginning to bigger and greater things … here we go!
