The Power of Decisions

  Often time’s people think it’s the big decisions that lead to big results. It’s the inconsequential decisions done right on a daily basis that change your life. You don’t become unhealthy from eating a burger once a week. It’s those daily rituals that, small as they may be, lead you to the results in your life. The compound effect…

Become a Doer

  So many people come up to me and always tell me what they want to be. I want to be financially free. I want to be a property investor. I want to be a business owner. However how they act and what they want are not aligned. Wanting to be something is not good enough. You’ve got to have…

Take a Risk on Your Dreams

  About four years ago I was sitting in a Rich Dad event listening to a speaker talk about the opportunities in property, specifically in South Africa and the UK. When I sat there, something in me said, “This is right.” I had to take a chance but I was scared. It’s scary to go into property. In fact it’s…

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…

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…

Taking Back Control of Your Life

  How can we stop letting what happens outside of us, from infecting our internal side? Maybe someone you like has been cold to you, or your boss said something that’s just killed your confidence. Today I want to give you 3 tips on how you can build internal resilience so that when things happen outside of your control, they…

Break the Rules that Don’t Serve You

  While rules have their place, breaking rules can liberate you from their expectations. When we have a rule in place and things don’t happen according to the rule we become disappointed. So what I want to challenge you guys on today is having less stringent rules. There’s a guy who had quintuplets (5 kids at the same time), and…

It Will Never Be the Right Time

  As I’m travelling and talking to people, the biggest excuse I hear from people is that it’s not the right time. It’s as if there’s going to be some magical moment when all their ducks are in a row and that’ll be the time to make a decision. I hate to burst your bubble but it doesn’t happen that…

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…
