Martelize woke up one morning with pain in her legs. Doctors suspected a virus, infection or inflammation in her spinal cord and this left her paralyzed. This all happened by the age of 14. Martelize has been in a wheelchair for over 20 years due to this illness she experienced as a teen. Through her seemingly discomforting situation, she felt complete freedom and joy and chose to look at life through the lens of optimism. In 2012 she started the Pink Penguin project in support of charities that challenge her outside of her comfort zone. Via this channel she’s undertaken a number of extreme adventures including kayaking to Robben Island and visiting the forests of Rwanda to see gorillas, all without the use of her legs and that is what inspires me. Some questions I asked:How can we get beyond our life restrictions? (10:36)What does it mean to have war on comfort zones? (18:36)Why do people think and behave the way they do? (24:38)What are your fears? (28:38)Has restrictions on your life helped you and is it helpful? (31:35)How do you deal with indecisiveness? (35:15)Actionable advice to change our perspective on life? (43:09)Key takeaways:Go through troublesome times one step at a timeUse stubbornness to your advantage and move forward in life Say yes to opportunities without knowing how you will get it done The secret to happiness has to do with the war on comfort zones You absolutely need to challenge yourself outside of your comfort zone to grow Take the necessary steps, although they might be scary, or be unhappy for the rest of your lifeSTRUGGLE is one of the best character builders in the worldReach out to Martelize:Website: http://www.martelizebrink.co.za Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/martelizebrink/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/MartelizeBrinkRSG/Twitter: https://twitter.com/MartelizeBrinkHOW CAN YOU SUPPORT THE PODCAST?-> This show grows and impacts people only because of awesome people like you!To impact more people, please subscribe, share & review this podcast on your preferred platform: Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, RadioPublic, TuneIn, PocketCast & CastroSubscribe to the show for lots more to come!

Today I had a chat with Thabang Madiba and he is such a humble and inspirational guy. Through hard work, dedication, and passion, he has won the South African Trail Running Championships multiple times and was the first black South African to represent the country in trail running. He is the Two Oceans Marathon Trail Race Champion, Skyrim African Champ & Racing Madagascar Champion.Some questions I asked:How do you define success? (14:26)How do you prepare yourself mentally? (15:48)What fears do you have? (18:44)Who inspires you? (20:25)How can running make you a better person? (23:24)Key takeaways:Trail running requires an exceptional amount of mental toughness to endure such long distances especially at a fast paceIt’s a blessing when you are disadvantaged or come from a struggling background as it forces you to dream big!Focusing and working constantly towards a big goal helps you silence your excuses and make you forget your current problems or situation.Envision yourself with the top class players or participants. It could very much help you endure what you are doing.It is not always about winning. It is about enjoying the journey on your way there.To be a great runner, or any type of athlete for that matter, takes a lot of hard work and discipline. It takes discipline and also builds disciplineReach out to Thabang:Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thabangmadibaFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/thabang.e.madiba HOW CAN YOU SUPPORT THE PODCAST?-> This show grows and impacts people only because of awesome people like you!To impact more people, please subscribe, share & review this podcast on your preferred platform: Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, RadioPublic, TuneIn, PocketCast & CastroSubscribe to the show for lots more to come!

Nershen Pillay is a Demartini Method Facilitator for Dr. John Demartini and a human behavior specialist who researches quantum physics, cell biology, neurology, brain chemistry and more, all in the pursuit of understanding which laws govern us. In this episode we discuss how and why we should live a life according to our highest values.Some questions I asked:How to empower someone who is stuck in 9-5? (14:36)How are we causing our suffering through positivity? (26:53)Do we need to view both the positive and the negative side of things? (33:57)How do we stay in balance? (39:02)How can we break a habit? (42:43)Key takeaways:Cells are more responsive to energy and our thinking than to the actual material in the body. With medicine, only 10% of the receptors on your cells respond to chemicals.Your genetics get triggered by an outside influence, it’s called epigenetics. It is far more influential than your genes than your physiology than your actual genes.The key to inspiration at work: look at the job traits or tasks that you physically do and link them to what’s most important to you in your life, your priorities or values.There lies massive power in gratitudeYou get what you are, not what you want. If you are lacking, you get more lack.The quality of life is based on the quality of questions you ask yourselfReach out to Nershen:LinkedIn: https://za.linkedin.com/in/nershenpillayWebsite: http://nershenpillay.comHOW CAN YOU SUPPORT THE PODCAST?-> This show grows and impacts people only because of awesome people like you!To impact more people, please subscribe, share & review this podcast on your preferred platform: Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, RadioPublic, TuneIn, PocketCast & CastroSubscribe to the show for lots more to come!

Andrew Patterson dedicated himself to a larger cause after being retrenched from his seemingly specialized job. He climbed Table mountain every day for an entire year and donated all the money raised to charity. We discuss why he did it, what we can learn from it and how people can commit themselves to something bigger to achieve better results.Some questions I asked:Do people need to experience pain before changing their lives? (26:05)What does the word Ubuntu mean? (30:00)Advice for people to listen to their inner voice? (34:03)How to stay consistent and persist with your endeavors? (40:05)What can people do to broaden their perspectives? (59:46)Key takeaways:People procrastinate because they lack clarity on what they want to do or if they do know what to do then they procrastinate because they don’t know how to get thereIf you do not have a purpose then it’s easy to hit the snooze button in the morning when you actually need to get up earlyThe pain in which you are living now needs to be greater than the pain of trying to get to where you want to go in order to make a big change in your lifeJust because you are not responsible for someone else’s suffering does not mean you can’t be part of the solutionDo the things that put your soul on fire!Ideas come from within. Ideas come to you with a specific purpose and you should act on them. All you need to know is that you have all the resources within you to ACT on the idea.It’s not that we don’t listen to our inner voice but rather that we get caught up in other people’s opinions. People don’t see the full puzzle, they only see a piece of the puzzle. Reach out to Andrew: IG: https://www.instagram.com/365ubuntuclimbs/LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/andrew-patterson-76a26131HOW CAN YOU SUPPORT THE PODCAST?-> This show grows and impacts people only because of awesome people like you!To impact more people, please subscribe, share & review this podcast on your preferred platform: Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, RadioPublic, TuneIn, PocketCast & CastroSubscribe to the show for lots more to come!
