Unbelievable.... I started the challenge on 4 June 2007. I was having a "bad" day, I was negative, short tempered,  over-all just in a bad space... Blaming everyone for my problems.... Playing games on my phone in stead of focusing, reading the paper in stead of doing my job (And still wondered why things weren't going my way!!!)

I thought to myself that this really wasn’t the right day to start but since I put that date down to start, I should just as well do it…I signed in and started my first lesson.... Little did I know that I was taking the first step of an unbelievable, life changing journey!
I started off small: Didn't play games on my phone anymore, took the stairs in stead of the lift, etc. but my goals grew as I became more positive... I started slowly concentrating on the types of thought crossing through my mind. I stopped listening to the news on the radio. I stopped reading the negative articles in the newspaper every morning. I then found myself consciously changing my wording in my sentences when I spoke to people to positives in stead of negatives.
I started focusing on tasks at hand at work… Being more positive just made everyone I dealt with more positive. I started closing deals, one after the other!
My wife immediately saw the change in me.
I was driving home one afternoon (11 July – round about day 30 something) and I remember thinking to myself: Why is it that when we can control everything around us, do I still have to smoke? You must know that I smoked between 20 and 30 per day…. I got home and said to my wife that I have 3 cigarettes left and then I am quitting. I couldn’t really read her thoughts but something told me she wasn’t too sure whether I could do it this time. I literally finished my last smoke that evening, threw away the packet, said my prayer to ask God for the assistance – AND THAT WAS THAT!!!!!!!!! I said to a few people after that that it was actually scary how easy it was this time: I just reminded myself that this is good for me, others and the greater Good every time I had a craving and it just went away!
I can honestly say that the KAIZEN challenge changed my life.
I will continue this from here. I have already set out a plan as to do my quiet time in the mornings, to read a motivational peace every morning, set my goals and live the Kaizen way!!!
Thank you Hannes Dreyer and the Kaizen Challenge for an unbelievable experience! Thank you for opening my eyes to a world that is being kept from us by the world! Thank you for showing me that there is so much more to life than rushing around like rats, chasing money!!!!
Thank for making me realize that life truly is a journey and that we have to take responsibility for ourselves.....

When I decided to do the Kaizen Challenge I was at the lowest point in my life, having endured several years of nothing but one disaster after another – and I was totally lost and did not know how to turn my life around. My daily mantra was “I must have been very Read more...

What can I say. This was the most exciting 49 days of my life.  Just taking a few minutes per day can change your life.  One thing I must confess, is that my husband is a much more positive person than what I am and I needed this 49 days challenge to change my mind.    I can be influenced very easily from Read more...

I was always amazed and envious of the lecturers/presenters at courses I attended that seemed to operate on a different clock than mine. They seemed to have so much time to do all the things they get done and still stay Read more...
Wealth Insight 2009-06-12 How Wealth Creators think is how they get rich If you want to break through the thinking that says – making money is hard; it takes years; it takes money to make money; it is very risky; it’s winner take all; most people take the gamble and don’t win; and a tiny handful of blessed or lucky or talented or well-connected people take the lion’s share ... ... then I strongly, strongly recommend that you take a look at my... Read more...

I approached the Kaizen Challenge at first very skeptically mainly due to the fact that I have already started reading self improvement books and though I know it all already. I had some successes but mainly failures (and mostly in terms of money). I never realized why as I thought as I exhibiting the right behaviors and Read more...
