With apologies to Bob Dylan

“Come gather 'round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone.
If your time to you
Is worth savin'
Then you better start swimmin'
Or you'll sink like a stone
For the TEM$ they are a-changin”

For me the greatest lesson to be learned during the Kaizen Challenge can be
summarized in that classic (albeit slightly modified) first verse by Bob Dylan.
 It is imperative that in order to grow and learn, one has to set aside the TIME.
Time is nothing if you’re doing nothing, so put in some EFFORT.
Use that effort to slowly change your MINDSET to that of a Wealth Creator,
and at the same time be willing to INVEST IN YOURSELF FIRST.
As far as the actual challenge goes I found I did struggle with consistency.
Ideally I’d liked to have started at the same time and same place every morning in order to build a habit, but Corporate Aviation has other ideas and with 5am departures and constantly changing destinations, it was a challenge to say the least. But I persisted, and made certain that each daily task was accomplished.
The trick now is to maintain the momentum and continually build on those qualities required to stay on top of the game. Like someone that trains hard to do the Argus Cycle Tour or the Comrades Marathon, it’s very easy to rest on ones laurels having accomplished such a challenge, and in effect go straight back to the “rat-race” mentality. I am about to start the Kaizen Challenge from the start again, and indeed again after that, if that’s what it’ll take to make me a habitual “thinker”.
Already I find myself spending more time in the day contemplating my own life path than reading newspapers that sell only doom and gloom and depression, but it still needs work.
In conclusion: I find myself healthier, happier and in love with life. The relationship between my wife and son and I is stronger than ever and the positive vibrations appear to be oozing out of the walls of our home. My 10 year old son is already showing signs of an eagerness to learn more as I use Kaizen principles to teach him life’s truly valuable lessons.

This is how my story begins; towards the middle of last year I saw an advert in the newspaper about a free seminar on wealth creation. For some reason I could not shake it out of my mind and I took a decision to attend. The seminar was held in Midrand in the early evening. From that day I have never regretted because Hannes has continued to challenge all Read more...

I know I have changed over the last 49 days. In fact, a number of work colleagues and friends have commented on it.  I have completely given up reading the daily newspapers. It's given me more time in my day. Never being one to watch much TV, I watch even less and find my eldest Read more...
Wealth Insight 2009-11-20 I Divide Internet Entrepreneurs Into Three Groups. 1. The average entrepreneur This entrepreneur does not have a good chance of success because of three things – A scarcity mindset (the belief that there is not enough to go around). This is the opposite of an abundance mentality. Dependence on the ‘experts’. Webmasters, gurus, financial consultants. This always drains profits, adds delays, and works against success; A culture of... Read more...
