#Attitude

 

“I have no problems” - Dr Myles Munroe 

 

The Wowos 5 Am Club and Wowos Motivational Spiritual Club are cohorts created to uplift our spirits and give us the in-it-to-win attitude. 

 

Today, I would like to talk about Attitude. Munroe defines attitude as “a product of belief”. He said your attitude comes from your belief system. 

 

Napoleon Hill argued that we must have a positive attitude and that a “positive attitude allows you to tap the source of great power that resides within you, enabling you to accomplish things you never before believed were possible”. 

 

So, Wowos, it is not about how many degrees you have or how rich or poor you are! It is not about your titles or your height! All you must do is fix your belief system, which will result in you having a positive attitude. Let me give you an example; we asked Wowos to sleep on the floor at least once a month. We were challenging your belief system. We were taking you out of your comfort zone. We were planting a new seed of a positive attitude in you. 

 

Please listen to this recording: https://youtu.be/KCA4Ta0vEBg

 

Have a relentlessly positive attitude today, Wowos. Work on your belief system and come alive! You are what you think.

Wowos Book Club hosted Dr Jabu Mtsweni

 

“Those who do not read or write must not lead, lest they are going to lead us into temptation and deliver us to poverty” - Tshilidzi Marwala

Remembering Malusi Jamela

 

Malusi Jamela passed away on 4 February 2006. The ever-smiling, tall, and intelligent J was laid to rest on 11 February 2006 in Port Elizabeth (now known as Gqeberha). Today, 17 years later, post his death, we, as Wowos Club, remember him. Pastor Sivuyile Hlam, a best friend of uMalusi, wrote as follows back then:  

 

 

I hope you know that I am mad at you for getting into your car and driving at that hour, when you were most probably tired or even drowsy. 

You know I told you to be careful with your driving. But now you can be careful no more, for you are gone!

During your tragic accident, I hope you called out the name above all names, the name of Jesus - who had been long calling yours. 

Yes He had been long calling you, and some of us know it, but I especially know it. 

HE calls with a voice as commanding as a king, yet as a assuring as a lover, and in my heart I know you have to finally respond again.

Something I cannot explain within me tells me that Saturday morning the Lion of the tribe of Judah roared at the devil, and the devil could hold you no more.

The devil wanted to take you in December of '95 while you were at the school of initiation, but the LORD wouldn’t permit it, coz you were the Lord's and not satan's.

 

Even if the anointing upon my life could raise you back to life, I don’t think God would permit a mere man like me to call back to earth one of heaven's finest treasures; but we'll surely miss you here!

 

Today you have joined the cloud of heavenly witnesses and in the heavenly balconies; and you applaud the works of faith. 

 

Today you can preach no more nor do you need anymore preaching, how could you, when you are in the presence of the Captain of our Salvation, the Author of our Faith - as worship rise, all those must cease.

 

As the gentle hand of Jesus gave you the divine touch that morning, I hope that the bits and pieces of your life and journey of faith finally made sense and your salvation was made complete.

 

Fare thee well J. 

Side sibuye sibonane Gxiya mfondini, thole ndini lamaGqwashu. 

Wena kwekwe end' enesigweqa ibe inebatha yaye ichul' ukunyathela okwenyamakaz' engabizwayo!

Hamba zibulo lezibulo lakwaJamela!

Push yourself

Push yourself 

 

Waking up this Monday morning was not easy. I had to push myself. I had to make up my mind - do I continue to sleep and ignore these messages from Wowos 5 am Club, or do I stand up and move? 

 

I had to remember the words of Les Brown, “whatever you wanna do, you must do it massively”. He says you must push yourself. Double the calls if sales are down! You’ve got to be hungry, he argues. He says work more than you are paid. Read that again, Wowos Career Engaging Club Members! 

 

Les tells us to watch our faces and body posture. We must surround ourselves with positive people. That is why Wowos 5 am Club is important to me! Take a listen to this audio: https://youtu.be/_5ac2sQ_hc0. 

 

Have a massive day, Wowos. Increase your pace, be relentless and give all you’ve got!

#Faith cannot be seen. Faith cannot be touched.

 

Faith cannot be seen. Faith cannot be touched. 

 

My role model, Michael Jackson, has a ballad song titled “Keep the Faith”. The song comes from the Dangerous album, and it has the following passage: 

 

So keep the faith

Don’t let nobody turn you ’round

You gotta know when it’s good to go

To get your dreams up off the ground

Keep the faith, baby, yea

Because it’s just a matter of time

Before your confidence will win out

Believe in yourself no matter what it’s gon’ take

You can be a winner

But you got to keep the faith

 

Please listen to the song here: https://music.apple.com/za/album/keep-the-faith/322847038?i=322847213. Do listen to the entire album as MJ sings about “racism, poverty, romance and self-improvement, and the welfare of children and the world 🌎 “. 

 

Keep the faith today, Wowos. Don’t allow anyone to turn you around! You are so close to achieving your goals! 

 

Have a wonderful weekend!

#repoinflation #reporates #GDP

#REPO RATES SYNTHESIS ON EACH COUNTRY’S CITIZENS:

#SCOPE LIMITATION> USA, UK & SA REPO RATES, INFLATION & GDP PER CAPITA.

#SCOPE PERIOD LIMITATION>2023-02-02

#ASSUMPTION> EVERY CITIZEN WAS ECONOMICALLY ACTIVE, AND THAT WEALTH WAS SPREAD EQUALLY AMONG THE TOTAL POPULATION.

#DATA SOURCE>TRADING ECONOMICS 202

1. REPO INFLATION:

1.1 USA - 6,50%

1.2 UK - 10,5% 

1.3 SA - 7,20%

2. REPO RATES:

2.1 USA - 5,7%

2.2 UK - 4%

2.3 SA - 7,5%

3. GDP PER CAPITA:

3.1 USA - $61 855.52 

3.2 UK - $45 101.54

3.3 SA - $5 947.89

 

In Conclusion:

From this data, with SA Fiat currency having no reserve status and weak manufacturing, RnD whilst the other two have that privilege, it is clear to even a blind man or woman that citizens are 10 x worse when compared to the USA citizens n 8 x worse when compared to the UK citizens. This means our GDP is growing the slowest and bringing the mix of a skewed structural arrangement. We may see a hyper heating scenario as consumers defaulting ~ ceteris paribus. I hope I am wrong, as that will escalate political instability and social misery.

#Discipline is the foundation of #life.

Discipline is the foundation of life. 

 

My role model, Denzel Washington, once said, “So have dreams, but have goals, life goals, yearly goals, monthly goals, daily goals. I try to give myself a goal every day, sometimes just to not curse somebody out. Simple goals but have goals and understand that to achieve these goals, you must apply discipline and consistency. In order to achieve your goals, you must apply discipline, which you’ve already done, and consistency every day, not just one Tuesday and just two days. You have to work at it.”

 

I am bringing discipline up as Les Brown also mentioned it in his webinar yesterday and said it is part of having a relationship with yourself. 

 

Wowos 5 am Club is one cohort that encourages us to be self-disciplined. The idea of waking up at 5 am, Mondays to Fridays, is no child’s play! No one is watching but you! I am telling you, in Jim Rohn’s voice. 

 

I have so much respect for my mother, Doris Balekwa Ntshinga (born Mapu), who woke up at 4 am Mondays to Fridays, prepared us for school and off she went to work non-stop for years until she took earlier retirement. If you have a parent that did that for you, please respond and tell me all about it here. 

 

I also respect Zibuse L Kunene. This guy will send you motivational stuff at 06:00 am every day. How does he do this? Discipline! 

 

Of course, there are temptations to stop this 5 am club business. The voice comes and says, “sleep for another 30 minutes”. Jonga, it is not easy to wake up at 5 am and do three pockets. Not easy! Only 1% of Wowos are doing this! 1%! 

 

Please, take a listen to this: https://youtu.be/7K001IvyZs8

 

Be self-disciplined today, Wowos. Take your power back!

A consistent #plan or #gameplan is necessary.

 

 

Setting goals, we are told, is very important. Oprah says, “you must have a vision even if you do not know the plan”. 

 

Today, we look at your plan. We look at it because your family, business and schoolwork need a plan. But the truth is, setting goals and reevaluating them is hard. That is why many let the planning slide away. 

 

Wowos Club allows you to be surrounded by people who have plans. Learn from them. Learn from those Wowos that read. Join Wowos Book Club sessions like we did last night. Learn from those who write 📝 and those who have businesses. Attend Wowos webinars, and connect with us via our webmail, website and WhatsApp. Read our morning messages. Attend our functions and read The Morning Thought of Zibuse L Kunene, which offers us free advice. 

 

Oprah said, “you must find a way to serve”. Find a way to serve and serve excellence. We have various opportunities for you to fill in Wowos Club. Chat with me if you need a space to do this. Jabu and Zibuse performed excellently yesterday - they brought us a platform to talk about a book many of us did not read, and today we have the knowledge 📕 of that book. 

 

Jim Rohn said, “If the future gets clear, the price gets easier”. Take a listen to this: https://youtu.be/eSwTv46tLBM

 

May your plans come true, Wowos. See you today at 16:00 at the Les Brown webinar - let me know if you need the details.

What is your #mirror showing you, #Wowos?

“The world is a mirror. And we get from life not what we want, but that which we are” - Robin Sharma.
 
What is your mirror showing you, Wowos? 
 
Denzel Washington, my favourite actor, once shared this story: 
 
“And I’m looking in the mirror, and I see this woman under the dryer behind me and every time she looked up –she was looking at me. She was looking me in the eye, I don’t know who she was, and I said, you know, she said somebody give me a pen, give me a pencil. I have a prophecy. 27 March 1975, she said boy, you are going to travel the world and speak to millions of people. Now mind you, I flunked out of college. I’m thinking about joining the army. I didn’t know what I was going to do, and she is telling me I’m going to travel the world and speak to millions of people.”
 
When I arrived in Johannesburg, this woman I met on the train sat with me and explained which station I would get off at. I was so afraid. She sat with me and told me to get off when I get to the station before Randfontein, count from now on, there will be so and so stations (I can’t remember the number she gave me) - “you need to get off at the station before Randfontein”.  
 
Kouzes and Posner wrote, “If you don’t believe the messenger, you won’t believe the message”. 
 
I believed in this woman, and I counted the station and got off at that station before Randfontein. It was the right station. 
 
John Kehoe wrote, “It’s natural to want all the answers before we’re willing to risk any legwork. We’d all love to see the steps and know all the details of everything that will happen to us. But you rarely see those details and steps at the beginning, and very often, things unfold in the most unexpected ways”. That is why Martin Luther King said, “take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase. Take the first step”. 

So, today, Wowos, remember to believe the messenger for you to believe the message. Have a beautiful day.

Don’t you #quit!

Don’t you quit! 

What have you done with your life since yesterday’s powerful message, Wowos? We got affirmations from many Wowos that yesterday’s writing was valid! Some Wowos wrote to me offline and told me about their struggles! They said it was not easy. Others asked me how do I challenge my family on these things. After reading that post, one person took the initiative to apply for a job yesterday, attempting to move away from the toxic work environment. 

T D Jakes says everyone has thought and decided to quit over something or someone at one stage. He warns us that we must never quit on our dreams! You might not be fast or quick enough, but never give up on your dreams! Don’t quit, as you will become better after this! 

I could hear and read the pain in yesterday’s Wowos 5 am cohort, but what is remarkable is that the pain will pass. We will live through it as it is part of life to make us grow.

Don’t you settle for less, Wowos. Keep trying this year; get up every day at 5 am as we do in Wowos 5 am club! Get up! Respect your time on this earth! 

T D Jakes said, “what separates us is transformation”. I urge you to transform and be better for yourself this year. 

Yesterday, we said remove the clutter, the junk, remove the negativity! Don’t rest in the middle, rest at the end! You will see things are going to start happening! 

Take a listen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D88dnGN3KO0
 
Dream big - Novak Djokovic told us yesterday after winning the Australian Open. Les Brown said, “it takes courage!”. It takes courage to be new! 

Don’t you quit today, Wowos! Have a productive Monday!
