Fear and forgiveness

  I want to talk about children and babies specifically because I think they get life. There’s a quote that says, “The older I get the less I know” because the older we get the more logical and sceptical we become. I wrote this because of my sister’s two baby boys. These babies have serious gifts but the two that…

Change your life with this ONE thing

  I know I bring this up in a lot of my videos but if you can really figure this part of your life out, your life will take on a whole new meaning. That thing is appreciation. If you can appreciate what you have you become the richest person in the world. When you can’t or don’t you become…

Don’t Let Your PAST Affect Your PRESENT

  I’ve been in Thailand for a few weeks visiting my sister who moved here 3 years ago with her husband. While talking to her I asked her how long it took her to adapt to Thailand because it’s completely different to South Africa. It’s a different atmosphere, language, culture, climate, people and adapting to this amount of difference would…

To Change Your Life, You Have to Change Your ENVIRONMENT

  I’m sitting with a new friend of mine, Ode. He’s a local in Thailand and while talking with him I realized it’s important to realize that if you want to change your life you’ve got to put yourself in an environment to have that change. As someone who’s been in Thailand only a few times, there are certain nuances…

How to Tackle Difficult Situations

  I can happily say we arrived safely in Thailand. It was an incredibly difficult trip – we flew in with my sister and her 5 month old twin babies and it ended being a 24 hour trip. When you’re working with 5month old babies they sleep, eat and need to be entertained for the full 24 hours. I knew…

How to Master Every MORNING!!

  One of the things I’ve applied and believe is going to give me more success than anything else is a routine – a morning ritual. When you become more successful, you obviously earn more but you have to deal with more responsibility. You have to deal with more stress, obstacles and people. Think about corporate – when you start…

The 5 Love Languages

  Communicating love. That sounds simple doesn’t it? If you love somebody you just tell them that you love them and that’s it! No. There’s this thing in psychology called intention and perception. I’ve got a certain intention when I say something or gesture to you; and you have a perception about what that means. For example, I was giving…

Where Your Energy Goes, Success Flows

  I was speaking to a German on the Germany leg of my European tour and I asked him, “How is it that Germany is known for its precision? How are you guys so good at getting things right?” He said, “It’s because we know how to focus and what to focus on.” It made me realise that where our…

Success is a Journey

  Today I wanted to check in with you to make sure you’re living life as it should be – as a journey not as some sort of a pilgrimage that has an end. I think where a lot of people get stuck is thinking you need to reach some point and only then you’ll be happy. We start to…

Becoming Independent

  Today I’ve got a guest, Judith, who I met here in Croatia. She’s 20 years old and travelling on her own. Laurens: “So, being an independent girl, what would you say to someone striving to be more independent?” Judith: “It’s important to know who you are. You can’t be independent if you don’t know that. You can only find…
