My dad lived a very acute life and was faced with many challenges. As a young boy, I continuously observed the ostensible financial challenges my dad exhibited. This inspired me to work hard and ensure that I live a better life for myself as well as being able to assist others so that they do not have to live with similar stresses. Also, losing my dad at the tender age of 15 and being the only child, really motivated me to work hard and make a life for myself.
Live in the present and challenge your energies on factors that are within your control. Also, to not be hard on oneself and celebrate all the simple things in life. Live in the moment.
I would like to see a country in which we create stability, sustainability and instil confidence. This would entail resolving our current energy crisis; reducing corruption at all levels; eradicating crime; creating equal opportunities for fellow South African, especially our previously disadvantaged communities; addressing the current inequality and socio-economic challenges.
