How to empower yourself through others

Probably the most important resource you have in your life is the people you surround yourself with. I’m sure you’ve heard the saying your net worth is directly determined by your network. If you have people around you that have a poor mindset, body and bank account that’s going to reflect in yours. You can’t change others around you but…

How to open yourself up to greatness

  I want to talk to you about a growth mindset. A growth mindset is the opposite of a fixed mindset. A fixed mindset says “I am born this way, with these skills, strengths and weaknesses and there’s nothing I can do because I was born this way.” I completely disagree with it. I think it can limit you massively…

Pick Your Hard

  A lot of people see what I’m doing – speaking a lot, traveling, living a nice lifestyle – and think that it’s easy. It’s not. Entrepreneurship is hard. I go through many moments when I’m not sure if I’ll be able to pay my bills. I go through doubt, frustration and insecurity because I’m not sure if I can…

Observing the Signs Around Us

  Sometimes we forget to hear the messages that the universe is giving us. When something irritates you about somebody, that’s the perfect time to reflect and ask what it is in yourself that’s irritating. Relationships and people around us are just mirrors. If something irritates you about somebody else, it’s usually something you need to reflect on in yourself.…

The 1 Thing You Must Understand About SUCCESS

  Something that doesn’t get spoken about enough is that success takes patience. It’s not something we want to hear because we want to see the flashy exciting part of it. In my experience, from what I’ve seen and the people I’ve been around, success takes time to build. Our society and conditioning has been that success comes quick and…

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 Become UNSTOPPABLE

  When I wrote this, my sister and I were about to fly roughly 20 hours to Thailand with her two babies. She keeps worrying about what other people are going to think once these babies start crying. I can understand why she feels that way but that’s probably the thing holding most people back from taking a chance on…

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…

Number ONE Key to Unlimited SUCCESS

  Yesterday while finishing another seminar about financial freedom through property investing, a gentleman stood up and asked, “Laurens what is the number one factor that has been influential in your success?” It kind of caught me off-guard because there are a lot of things that come to mind. Reading regularly, meditation, getting mentorship, constant self-development and doing due diligence.…

Take Responsibility of Your LIFE

  I just got back from an extended trip in Europe and what’s so nice about being in another culture is seeing their different fundamental ways of doing things. It made me think about if the way we’re thinking and doing things here in South Africa is the right way. I think there’s a sense of entitlement that we have…
