How to stand out and reach your next level of success

  A lot of people have been asking me, “How can we get to that next level of success?” Whatever it is you want to excel at – the best spouse, cook or entrepreneur – you need to have a USP: a unique selling proposition. It’s something to make you stand out. I love using Usain Bolt as an example…

The most important asset in your life

  I had just gone for a swim in Durban’s Indian ocean when I noticed a group of about 30-40 people, aged around 16-24. I don’t always understand religion but what they did really touched me. They broke into small groups of 5, went to the water, shared a prayer and when the one person was prayed for they switched.…

Taking Life for Granted

  It’s so easy to look at where you’re missing out on life – to look at what you’ve done wrong, what you’re lacking or what you don’t have. What we forget to acknowledge is that we won the lottery by being alive. If you think about the chances of you coming out as individualistic and unique as you are…

Change your Story with Self-Awareness

  Self-awareness sounds like it’s this airy, fairy thing but I can tell you now that when you master your self-awareness you can change your life. We’re governed by stories that we tell ourselves.

How to Get Comfortable with Loneliness

  A lot of people have been messaging me and asking how they can get more people to accept them. The truth, however, is you’ve got to accept yourself first before you expect anybody else to accept you. The problem with getting validation from what other people think is that it often depends on what situation and social circle you’re…

3 Ways to Increase Your Assertiveness

  Sometimes people think assertiveness means people following you and that your way goes. That, in my opinion, is not assertiveness. It’s knowing what you like and dislike, then allowing or disallowing people to treat you in a certain way. I want to challenge you to go stand in the mirror after a long day and ask, “Did I put…

The Value of Curiosity

  I recently learnt how curiosity is such a valuable part of success. As soon as you think you know it all you’re getting into a trap. When I catch myself doing it, I remind myself that I need to be curious, like a child trying to figure everything out. During a recent workshop with a corporate client I noticed…
