To be the best - you must learn from the best






The Secret to life is to fall down seven times and get up eight times : Paulo Coelho   



As South Africans we are built pretty tough.

Famed Brazilian author Paulo Coelho is a fan of the ever more popular ” The School of Hard Knocks” road to human greatness , but there exists a far easier, less bumpy road .

Here it is in a nutshell ;

If you want to be the best – you must learn from the best

Indeed , human greatness leaves footprints.

Take heed of those who have achieved Sustained Success and Significance – what they know , what they do and what they do not do on their way to human greatness .

The problem is most of us simply do not have time to observe and study what they do .

Now , we’ve just made it a lot easier for you with a new 2017 POWER TALK :
