Why I do what I do?



I was always busy building businesses to grow bigger as an entrepreneur to dominate the world. It was always about how much I can achieve with my life. After 10 years working on it intensely, my health was badly affected. I was eating unhealthily, lots of late nights and I was not sleeping at all. Worst of all, I was afraid to visit the doctors. So for the last 4 years, I decided to only work on only meaningful work that made a difference to make lives better. I decided to terminate businesses and people within my group that did not make a difference that was not meaningful. I decided that I was NOT going to carry the weight of people with me that did not go the distance with me. I decided to lose all the burden and baggage of unhealthy (negative, free riders and people with bad intentions people) I decided to live a healthier life that is worth living. So today at 44 I am feeling pretty awesome and I look forward to many more years ahead and it all starts with me taking care of my life as I cannot provide if I am not healthy. I have since lost 25kgs in total and I am still working out in the gym every morning and watching what I eat everyday. I am still a work in progress and I intend to live the rest of my life healthily. I encourage you to do so as your internal body system will drive your positive and motivated life forward. With desire, the belief and massive actions, anything is possible. The question is are you ready to make that sacrifice to get to where we want to get to? Or are you just here till the next thing comes along? I will not be waiting for you if you are not all in and all out in this awesome journey ahead. Those that do not will be removed and I wish you all the best in your future. And those that do will have an awesome and amazing journey ahead with us!

A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events and outcomes. It is a catalyst and it sparks extraordinary results.
We will give you our best effort to get the best result.

It's all part of my journey. I've done a lot of stupid things, but you learn by your mistakes.I've learned that fear limits you and your vision. It serves as blinders to what may be just a few steps down the road for you. The journey is valuable, but believing in your talents, your abilities, and your self-worth can empower you to walk down an even brighter path. will be there with you.
