  • Love the skin you’re in: Personal Grooming and Image

    An excerpt from Standing Tall in a Falling World
     
    I am sure you have heard the saying, “Who you are speaks so loudly, I cannot hear what you are saying!”  That is what looking and being the part without saying a word, is all about.   Your personal grooming and image is your personal branding.  Who you are has your signature all over you.  Be confident in your image, don’t apologise for who you are.  It is our individual uniqueness that makes the world such a colourful place.
     
    Wherever you are, go prepared to market yourself before you attempt anything else.
     
    Present yourself well… Continue reading

  • Invading my soul – A personal narrative by Mpho Mpofu

    I was once told that in life there are no coincidences. Life presents carefully planned and God crafted experiences that present situations or people that are there to impart knowledge, skill and support. For the longest time I never paid much attention to this insight but the older I get, the more I understand it to be true. In August 2015, at a Professional’s Speakers Association’s “Food for thought’ themed Women’s event, I met Angelique Du Toit who touched my heart. She pierced into a place inside of me in a profound and significant way. I found myself wondering, how… Continue reading

  • God’s Workmanship

    Not so long ago I received this very powerful emailer from Greg Hinnant Ministries. He delves into the biology of humans and the incredible way in which we are made, from our intelligence right down to our flesh and skin. It’s most certainly worth the read…
     

    So Random Force Did All This?
     
    Stunned! That was my reaction to Amsterdam’s Dutch National Museum of art when, as a rather incurious sixteen year old, I wandered through it, noting the brilliant contrasts of light and dark and exquisitely fine detail in every painting. Young, inexperienced, and uninformed as I was, even I knew there must… Continue reading

  • You are Your Message

    An excerpt from Standing Tall in a Falling World
     
    Life is really a series of presentations.  These presentations are verbal, non-verbal and a combination of both.  The better your presentation is, the better your life could be.  Daily you make presentations to your husband, your children, your staff and your friends.  The more significant your presentation is, the better your chances of having fulfilling relationships and greater success in your daily life.  Just imagine the possibilities contained in doing a series of significant life presentations.  It could take your life from mediocre to magnificent!
     
    It is a fact that the first impression… Continue reading

  • Stop Worrying – Start Living

    These three steps from Coach Brett Blair will help you to practically to stop your ‘worrying’ in its tracks. 
     
    Worrying is worthless.
     
    Worrying has no productive value.
     
    Worrying never gets you closer to peace, to happiness, or to accomplishing your goals. It can become a paralyzing trap.
     
    Erma Bombeck is quoted as saying “Worry is like a rocking chair: it gives you something to do but never gets you anywhere.”
     
    I know a lot of people who are chronic worriers. I bet you do as well. They are sweet, loving people, but their constant worrying is not helping themselves or anyone else. It can also be… Continue reading
