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 fish out of water. I cannot make use of the phone. The only meaningful way I can communicate long distance is via e-mail or text message. As can be imagined this seriously hampers one’s ability to do all the wheeling and dealing required for the running of a business, or to keep long distance relationships alive etc.
I have blamed much of my (relative) lack of success on my hearing, or mostly on other people’s conception of my impairment. I have blamed other people because they stared themselves blind against my impairment, instead of giving me a change to do this or that.
I now know that I was the only person ever to put real boundaries around myself. I have come to realize that I, me, myself are holding my destiny (God permitting) in my own hands. I have removed my destiny from the hands of people and organizations that I have allowed to control my life and destiny.
I have applied Kaizen to my life the past 49 days. The results are visible.
I have been able to visualize my lower back pain away.
My wife is happier; we have a deeper understanding and are more supportive of each other.
My children are happy and laughing. Mind you, they have always been, but I enjoy their company much more.
I came to enjoy the early mornings immensely and will jealously guard over my precious meditation time.
My non existent relationships with people at work (I own part of it) has improved.
I am more productive at work and at home.
I am building on relationships that have stagnated, and am seeking to start new ones.
Monetary wise I am hesitant to state the slight improvement in my bank balance has been the result of Kaizen, but I have been working faithfully on my monetary goals although no results are visible yet.
Spiritually I have grown immensely. I am nearer God than ever before. He is in me and I in Him. I pray that when people look at me, they may see a glimmer of Him in me, his humble servant.
My Kaizen journey was not an easy one. I went through a depressive time, but sticking to Kaizen I got through it. Getting out of the rut was never easy for anyone I think. There are many areas that calls for improvement. I skimped on my mentor’s, but look forward to getting back on track.
I am grateful for all that I have, that I am, that I can do. I am grateful that I have been able to partake in the challenge. I am grateful to my mother whom has paid this course as way as a present to me. This probably is the biggest present I have ever gotten from her.
I think I can say that I am a happy person now, due to Kaizen.
I am grateful to you Hannes, for giving me, and us this opportunity. For sharing with us. Congratulations on your fantastic English! When starting the course I at first thought that you had bought the course from someone else, and was presenting it to us with a bit of your own content. Well done, I am glad to be proven wrong!
This 49 day Kaizen exercise was only the beginning of a much longer, larger, fulfilling journey that now lay ahead. I plan to enjoy the journey, is it ever completed? Should we not regard the journey as the destination?

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 2009-07-03 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...

What has this Kaizen program meant to me?  When I was a child, I was creative, positive and fearless. It was second nature to imagine something and go for it. But, over time, as a result of "society believes" --- some of these “believes” baseless and passed on through generation Read more...

At the end of last year (2006) I made a big decision to resign from my job. Realizing that this was my only form of stable income the decision was not an easy one. One of the reasons for making this decision was that Read more...

Much of the teaching of the Kaizen Challenge can be encapsulated in a phrase often used by my late grandmother.   Her words went over our heads, but they now make a huge amount of sense to me, and will strike a chord with all who have followed the Challenge.    “Cast your bread upon the waters, and they shall Read more...
