Before the challenge

I am currently an employee, as my father is, as most people are I suppose, but with a difference.
I have been looking for change for a while, because I realized that somewhere in my life there is obviously something missing. This cannot be it, receiving a pay slip, spending my salary on debt and groceries, and then waiting for the next pay slip.
I saw other people live life, and not only being alive, and I wanted that.
I then asked God to show me the way, then one Sunday I saw an ad about Hannes in a newspaper.
The secret
I have personally experienced the power of positive thought, like attracts like and that you receive what you ask for, in several instances of my life, although at the time I did not realize it.
  • I prayed to God to lead me to my wife, and He did, not long after.
  • When my wife and I started with a family, both of us asked for a boy, and guess what, it was one.
  • When we planned for our second child, we asked for a boy again, and lo and behold, it was one again.
  • I prayed to God, not for riches from somewhere, like winning the lotto, or from someone else, but simply for someone who can teach me to become wealthy, to make a positive change in the world and He led me to Hannes.
I am currently a Hannes Dreyer Wealth Creator Mentor student, and I would not change that for anything in the world. It has made me aware of so many things that you cannot learn anywhere else.
Personal change
I thought that if I could be rich (financially), as small thinkers do, then my whole world would be a better place.
After the challenge though, I know that financial wealth is only a small portion of what wealth really is, and that it is secondary wealth.
I am currently working on my physical health, as this is very important to me. I train regularly, doing weight lifting, cycling, running, playing squash or just kicking a ball around, as long as I am physically active. I even park my car further away from the stores where I need to go, on purpose. I watch what I eat and read up a lot about eating healthily. The Men’s Health magazine lands in my trolley each month.
I am doing all the courses Hannes has to offer as I can afford them, because learning is the most important thing that you can do. Rule number one is to invest in yourself and apply never ending change and growth.
Personal me-time is of the utmost importance. You have to know yourself first, before you can progress in life. Now that I know this, I can relate to so many instances that all of us know, but never actually thought about it in that way.
Einstein, Newton, Beethoven, you name them, did not perform their best work when there were people around, they did it whilst being alone, being “in the zone” as it may, being in connection with a higher state of mind.
I now know that the Universe is in line with positive people and desires us to have everything we want and more. I am striving to be more positive and has achieved that a lot, although 30 years of conditioning does not change at the tap of a finger, and I know that progress is in motion, slowly but surely.
I treat other people with respect and try to understand their point of view first before making myself understood.
I read a lot as readers are thinkers. Taking responsibility has become very important to me, and reading means that you are learning about each topic and thus growing slowly.
As the Kaizen Challenge taught me, nature gives in abundance.
I am a better person and will definitely read through the kaizen material again, because there is so much which can be learned from it.
I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you Hannes. Thank you so much for everything that you have taught me as well as others, for being unselfish and wanting a better life for all

Do I feel like one in a million? A resounding yes! Do I regard myself as superior to my contemporaries? No! I only think that I may be able to use my talents more productively (sometimes).   I am a hard of hearing, hands-on father of 2 Angels (2 and 4 years). I can only meaningfully communicate in a person to person basis. In group situations I am like a Read more...
Wealth Insight 2009-07-03 Mindset changes everything Andrew Lloyd Webber has a song called ‘Love changes everything’. Which is true. But mindset changes everything too. Take a look at this story I was sent a while ago...  “Last year I started on a puzzle. It looked like a tough puzzle. Lots of pieces, lots of similar stuff. The background was scattered with yellow leaves. In the foreground was lots of water splashing from one side to the other. In the middle were horses,... Read more...
Wealth Insight 2009-08-21 If you’re gold, for goodness’ sake, glitter! Remember the story last week about the woman who was gold to her boss, but he never noticed? He treated her like nothing special, and she left. And that was when he realized for the first time that she was an angel in disguise. She was gold, but he hadn’t noticed. He really lost out, but how about her? She did too. She left with nothing. After 20 years of building someone else’s business. Why?... Read more...
Wealth Insight 2009-07-31 Split second decision making I’ve been studying how we make decisions. Sometimes we take a long time to decide and then make a mistake anyway. Other times we decide in a flash and we are right. Does it matter? Very much so! If spending more time on a decision doesn’t guarantee success, then what should we do? Let me give you two examples. Example 1: A panel of art experts spends months deciding to buy a $10 million work of art. They take samples, they... Read more...

During the Kaizen Challenge I have reminded myself every day that whatever image I hold before me will become my reality– that the future is in my hands. This is a tremendous realisation if you deeply meditate on it, a huge spiritual realisation. It is such a profound Read more...
