Is it not time we did things for ourselves?

Have you ever wondered why are our people angry? I mean young people are angry. So are students. University students! They are angry.

Everybody is angry. Except me, of course. I’m not.

Why is that? Simple, I’m responsible for my life. If I messed it up, I messed it up myself. I wish there was a next time. And next time I wouldn’t mess it up. But there is no next time. There’s only now.

Now is the time. Now is the time to take charge of your life. Now is the time to be responsible for your life. And say, “I am the creator of my life.” Most people do not say that.

Those students that are striking and stabbing each other do not say that. They want someone to lead them. I do not. I’m a grown up. I can lead myself. Do you see what I am getting at?

Maybe you are not. Maybe you are blind. But if you are not, you will know what I am getting at. I am getting at power. I am saying you’ve got the power. There is a hit like that, I guess.

It says, “You’ve got the power!” And revelers say, “Yeah!” They do not mean it. They are just intoxicated, enjoying life, as they’d say.

You’ve got to mean what you say! Most of us don’t.

We are good deceivers. We say, “Yeah” while we mean “No.” Am I right?

Does the truth hit home? So when we strike and hit out, what do we want? Do we want a Messiah to lead us to paradise?

There is no Messiah that is going to lead us to paradise. There is only you that is going to lead you to paradise. Get it into your head.

You are your own liberator. Do things for yourself!

Ah, some people are going to say I’m too harsh. I’m not. I’ve been around, and I’ve seen things. Where people are happy, are where they are doing their own thing. They are not fighting.

They are not demanding things. They are doing their own thing. Think about it. Look around. Go to France, Germany and Denmark. Go to Japan.

What are people doing there? They are doing their own thing.

Don’t argue. Don’t say, “But…” just look around and say, “How can we be like that?” The other day I said to someone, “I wish I had R15 million.” He said what was I going to do with it.

I said I was going to invest it in the township and create 250 jobs.

That is how we should think. We should look within. What can we do for ourselves? We can do a lot. We can do amazing things. Yes, we can!
