Unleash with Bertha M.png

I believe that our experiences, good or bad, weave into life to form an intricate, purposefully designed tapestry. Without each loop, thread, strand and colour, we cannot have the masterpiece, our self-actualised selves, or the fullest version of ourselves. The bad experiences do not have to be in vain. We can use them to champion our growth, gain wisdom, and better understand ourselves and others. We can turn our lemons into lemonade  - if we know how.

Unleash Your Full Potential

A Life Steered - book excerpt

Watch my YouTube channel trailer

Sandra is determined to please her father, who is ambitious and understands the value of education. Unfortunately, her father is dealing with problems that not even he can control. Consequently, Sandra’s hopes and dreams are shattered when he fails to honour his word to support her in getting into higher education. Sandra eventually accepts this reality but suspects a family member may have had something to do with it. And when her father suddenly resigns from his job, he makes it clear that Sandra must shoulder the family responsibilities. It's an onerous task, and Sandra has obstacles at every turn, but she takes it in her stride.

Later, Sandra falls in love, and for a while, life seems enjoyable. But like all other things in her life, the relationship doesn't last. She later meets and marries Maxwell, who is more mature than she is. It is not love at first sight for Sandra, but she soon discovers that Maxwell is 'Mr Right' after all. At last, Sandra's life seems fulfilled as her husband supports her in every way and encourages her to follow her dreams. But little does she realise that tragedy is waiting around the corner.

My Book and Product Reviews

A few weeks ago, I saw my daughter play with a stress ball one of her friends gave her. I had never seen one before, so I got curious. What she told me fascinated me and I decided to buy a pack for myself from Amazon, but with a motivational twist. Watch the video below to hear my review of these Amazonmotivational stress balls.

Health is wealth 

We all know that without health, we have nothing. One of the ways to ensure that we stay healthy and have a good quality of life is to implement what we know about health. And so, as the saying goes, knowledge is power. Therefore, in the video below, I review the book I have on my shelf, Healing Foods: eat your way to a healthier life. It is my hope that by watching this video, you will gain more insight into your health needs. You can check the book on Amazon or by clicking on the book image below.

My Book Reviews

My most recent favourite reads are Michelle Obama's Becoming, Atomic Habits and Rich Dad, Poor Dad, which I found to be life-changing books.

In Becoming, Michelle recounts her journey from childhood into the White House, and she has impressive story-telling skills. She makes you the fly on the wall, watching and listening and sometimes you're right there with her as she takes you through the highs and lows of her childhood, dating Barack, becoming a mother, the wife of a politician and the sacrifices she had to make. I first bought Becoming on audible and later realised it is the kind of book I wanted to have on my living room bookshelf to read again and again and to lend and to gift others. Check it out here.

Atomic Habits is about recognising how our daily actions and thoughts shape us and what we can do to change and improve our habits to improve our lives. The principles stipulated in the book help you take a closer look at our behaviours and how, sometimes, without even realising it, they are shaping us for the better or worse. It is also helpful if you want to break bad habits and build good ones that will enrich your life. Check it out here.

Lastly, Rich Dad, Poor Dad is the kind of book that will help you understand the capital world and motivate you to take action to change how you do business and use your talents to generate income. It also dispels some misconceptions about what we regard as assets and shows you what tangible assets are and how to acquire them as you create generational wealth. This book made me realise how many of us sit on our laurels. Check the book out here.
