“Thank you Angelique du Toit for the Nomination, I am honored and thank you Julie B Steynberg, the Executive Director for Difference Makers SA, for allowing me this opportunity and platform to contribute in Changing Lives Making a difference.
I believe you have to bring your whole self to the table if you want to thrive in today’s world. This includes your unique set of gifts, personality, sense of humor and most importantly, your heart. Whether you run your own business or not, a creative and entrepreneurial approach is critical to fully blossom in the modern world and to experience the happiness and fulfillment you deserve. But most importantly, no matter what your dreams or obstacles, you have the power to change your life and, by doing so, you will change the world and those that live in it.”
I have been exceptionally blessed to have worked in four of the seven continents, meeting some remarkably talented and high profile individuals and leaders. It has indeed been a humble experience to witness changed lives, relationships and careers through our material, unique experiences and mostly the love for people. Without a doubt this has only been possible with a great team, God given talent and the fact that my company is build on a bedrock of love, a passion for what is possible and a commitment to be an unstoppable force of good to our clients but maybe more importantly to every individual in all different walks of life.
One of my biggest achievements was to have summited Mount Kilimanjaro. - A special project to honor 25 cancer patients from the Eastern Free State Cancer Association. An achievement only possible with the support of a great Tanzanian Team and my amazing loving husband. With every step on that mountain I felt the “battle” each cancer patients goes through…they are climbing their own “mountain”. Some reach the summit, some never. It was indeed our great honor and a very emotional moment to hand each patient a small lava rock as a token of appreciation for their commitment and internal “fight”.
Do what you can with what you have.
To make a difference and be remembered you do not have to do incredible things, just being there for the people around you can save someone from a meaningless life and help them lead the life they were meant to live.
In truth we might all be here to help each other, we might all be a part of a machine that fosters cooperation, or were not. We might just be here to make the best of the situation for ourselves. Helping others, bring happiness and prosperity into our own life, so in whichever way we choose to help others, it will always help us in return. And that is the “gift of giving”.
