I was fortunate enough to meet Hannes at a reasonably early age in my life and I cannot even start to explain how much I have changed since then. I want to thank the Lord for putting this remarkable man who is willing to share his knowledge and experience with anyone on my path. If you are reading this and are looking for a quick fix solution to your life’s problems, you are wasting your time. This is about taking responsibility for your own life, get off your backside and JUST DO IT. These are some of the changes I’ve experienced. We are on holiday in Europe and I’m writing this on a train from Munich to Salzburg which in itself is a testimony of how much I’ve changed.

 
We all have 24 hrs in a day make the most of your 24 hrs. I never had enough time to finish all my daily tasks, but when I actually sat down and started analyzing my day I was only actively working for a couple of hours a day. The rest was wasted surfing the internet, reading newspapers, watching television and aimless daydreaming. The first thing I decided to change was to start every day with some quiet time for myself and planning for the day ahead. Not work planning, but personal planning. Only when all my personnel tasks were completed could I read the news and my emails. In the beginning it was very difficult to change the old habits, but it got easier the longer I carried on. Now it is like second nature.
 
Decide what’s really important to you in life. My philosophy has always been to study hard, get a job, and make money which you can enjoy later with your family. I was so busy working for someone else that I completely neglected my loved ones, and the excuse was always the same, I’m doing it for us. Once I realized that they are the most important part of my life I’ve changed my priorities and put them first again. I’m making time to spend with them and I’m enjoying every second of it.
 
Make GOD part of your life and pray for wisdom. The day after I read the lesson where the following text was mentioned "What things so ever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them." (Mark 11:24) my mother-in law was diagnosed with cancer. We all prayed really hard and truly believed that she will be healed. The initial diagnosis was a very severe grade of cancer which miraculously changed to a less severe cancer after subsequent test. The doctors cannot explain why, but I know that it is a miracle from GOD. There is every reason to believe that she will be completely healed after 6 months of chemo therapy. Praise the Lord
 
Be positive (radiate positive vibrations) and distance yourself from moaners in life. We have a choice on how to react to every situation in life and our reactions can be positive or negative. Positive reactions/energy will pick you up while negative energy will drag you down even further. I’m trying to be more positive about life and its many challenges and not to get involved in all the negative conversations around the barbeque fires.
 
Get out of the rat race. The past 7 years I’ve worked for a large Oil Corporation with assignments all over the world. The salary is good and the work challenging, but I’m away from home a lot of the time. I wanted to change jobs a couple of times before to get out of the rat race, but every time they increase my salary or benefits and I stay a slave for another year. I have resigned a couple of days ago to pursue one of my lifelong dreams to take over our family farm in the Karoo. If you want to buy the tenderest Karoo meat please contact me.

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...
