#truthbetold if you’re not living to leave a positive legacy then perhaps you are lost and need to find yourself. If you find yourself finding parts of life experience as airy-fairy then you might not be conscious to this life which you have been given which is actually a huge responsibility.

Tony Robbins lives a life of servant leadership. When your life is not your own, but to bring purpose and meaning into the lives of others. This is the most rewarding gift you could ever give to yourself.

Amidst all the suffering and heart ache there is a man destined to go to a battle and a woman looking to be romanced. Battle for life, to live, to thrive. To be romanced by beauty, creativity, design and friendships. So #truthbetold we do have the power and means to influence, to make a change and to have a voice.

Wild at Heart: Discovering the Secret of a Man’s Soul: John Eldredge. “Deep in his heart, every man longs for a battle to fight, an adventure to live, and a beauty to rescue.”

Captivating: Unveiling the Mystery of a Woman’s Soul by Stasi Eldredge. “We desire to possess a beauty that is worth pursuing, worth fighting for, a beauty that is core to who we truly are. We want beauty that can be seen; beauty that can be felt; beauty that affects others; a beauty all our own to unveil.”

“We all have something that brings us to our knees.” Stasi Eldredge

There are countries, city’s, communities and networks in dire need for inspiration and to be asked “what inspires you?”.

Live your life for all the right reasons. Do life with purpose and intent. Don’t be scared to look in the mirror. Experience a life of courage and learning mistakes. Let your elders teach you, be open to the lessons you will learn through the conversations and interactions that are opportunities and blessings to exchange gifts.

In my older years I have come to appreciate that the gifts you enjoy… you enjoy more when you give. That they’re not always wrapped in a bow, but sometimes in an email, in an sms, in a moment in time.

Are we really free? Or are we crippled by the fears that society delivers to us on a golden platter. Fear of judgement. Fear of failure. Fear of ignorance. Fear of hurt. Fear of rejection. Fear of crime. Fear of injury. Fear of loss. Fear of abandonment. Fear of trust.

Can we as a world and as a nation not just embrace our diversity in all it’s beauty? Diversity is not about race or gender only. It’s about the fact that all of us are different. To live our life from a place of heart and meaning and intent to make the world a better place.

We have lost many great philosophers, theorists, artists and creatives as a result of time and society. Can we stand together and grow more leaders for a future that will make our children and generations to follow proud? Why is it so difficult for some and not for others?

I am inspired by people around the world – most noticeably from America. The land of the free and brave. These are the words in the anthem and the mantra they live by. They have birthed souls that are helping to save us all.

” Oh, say! can you see by the dawn’s early light

What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming;

Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,

O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?

And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,

Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there:”

They sing about their resilience, their optimism and determination. Come on South Africa. What will it take? What will you need to rise up and make this country a better place?
