On your transport to your spot...

14 November 2012, 08:27

There is a problem with my people. We are not willing to come early and leave late. We are not willing to work under the storm yet we have great ambitions and dreams. It is unquestionable that you have all the potential but what matters is how one uses it.

Let me take you back to the story of Mzansi finest "Itumeleng Khune". We all see him on our screens weekly diving for those balls, saving his country and his club from embarrassment and partly doing his job. The same Itumeleng Khune you see is the same guy who used to be a "Ball boy". The same Itumeleng Khune, who’s undoubtedly successful in life, is the same guy who used to sleep in the train station to make it on time to training at Kaizer Chiefs. Don't expect things to be easy. 

It was a remarkable display of devotion to duty that has earned the affable goalkeeper his due rewards.


If you haven't got my point let me summarized it to you...THINGS MIGHT LOOK EASY BUT THEIR ACTUALLY NOT THE WAY THE SEEM TO BE. There is pain that's going to comes with the life you're striving for. It is up to you if you’re willing to stand for what you believe and love or you will let those temporally barriers to impair you on your journey to success. Every dream has a price to pay, someone has to wake up early, someone has to forget about the bumpy ride and focus on the bigger picture. 

On the other hand, most people will remember the Boxing match in October 30, 1974 even though I was not born at the time. It is all over the internet. This was when the undefeated world Heavyweight champion George Foreman was against former world champion and challenger Muhammad Ali.

Ali said during the fight to Foreman "My mother can punch better; they told me you could punch, George! And they told me you could punch as hard as Joe Louis." According to Foreman, near the end of the fight, Foreman slammed Ali with a thundering body blow, and Ali whispered to him "Is that all you got, George?" to which Foreman thought "Yep...that's about it." After that, Ali began to dominate Foreman and won the fight by knock out in the 8th round.


In life you will be faced with giant’s problems in front of you. You will be punched hard by those problems, they might look big and highly recognized but you have dominion over them. Ali could have gone down if he wanted to but he stayed positive and take all the punches. 

The most important thing he did was to wait for the right time then takes that killer blow. Maybe that's what you need in your life. Take things the way the come, no matter how hard it is. They cannot last forever, their bound to crumble. Every problem has a limit, it can destroy you to a certain extent but you on the other hand you still have the ability to rise

The real question is; are you willing to put more effort in your dreams and care less about the barriers? Are you willing to do whatever it takes to be who you want to be? Are you going to let the poor governance to determine you life? Are you going to let people tell you what to do? Are you going to entertain your problems or are you going to focus on the bigger picture? Are you?
