Thomas Edison said, “Thinking is the hardest work of all that’s why most people rather die than think.” The quality of your thinking determines the quality of your decisions; the quality of your decisions determine the quality of your actions and the quality of your actions determine the quality of your results and of course the quality of your results determine the quality of your life.
Quality thoughts can only be influenced by few things; listening to positive and quality messages or talks; by reading good books that share life changing experiences; personal coaching and mentoring as well as personal development interventions like time-management, goal-setting, etc.
Veli Ndaba dedicated his life in helping people gain self-awareness and identifying gaps through his well delivered and thought-provoking NeuroLeadership and Brain-Based motivational talks, well -written and insightful books as well as one-on-one empowering life-coaching sessions.
