Thanks god we started this as ULwaz No Makhula, although I’m not making god a pedestal it’s just a metaphor no offence. So according to this title normal people thinks and acts the same way and you should get out of that’s trap. So in this piece I will explain what’s I mean in point form and I want to be blunt with you I rarely do research on this topics, mostly it’s my observations and the way I look at the world around me.

- They see the same business opportunities
The reason this article exist it’s because of this point only, but bear with me on other points as well because bonuses are usually life altering. The fact that’s us normal people cannot look ahead in the future is a misstep on its own ,we are lagging behind on this and we need to pick ourselves and start figuring what’s exactly might happen in the future in terms of the world of business. That’s way we will act accordingly. The only way to do this is through reading books about things that’s are still seems like myths and impossible to happen like artificial intelligence as well as Space travel ,Flying cars and so on. So that’s when those things manifests we will be in top of our game and be ahead to seize those opportunities.
Now today here in South Africa Level 4 Lockdown, open a new business that’s seemed to be dormant before, selling the face masks. The problem is people didn’t anticipate this moment. Mast were important from the beginning of this virus, but no one thought it’s would last for so long until it’s a mandatory thing for the whole country. Then the government announced and the doors flood open, and everyone in the city was trying to capitalize on this same thing.
I would like to appreciate the effort though from people in my country for taking that’s move and manage to compete with pharmacies on price. Earlier on myself I could but R40 mask it was too expensive, now it’s just a commodity I can get it for R10. Now this goes back to appreciating people to be creative and sew this, with that’s said most of the industries needs to be disrupted by a average person like you so the prices won’t sky rock, because you won’t only see the opportunity, but also the need to make everyday person to get that’s item, but leave it to big companies its will turn to a scarce and something for rich people only. On this point I can go forever if you can take anything here take the fact that’s you can start something from the scratch and make people realize they needed it and eventually its will become a need and you won’t have a hard time selling.
2. Social proof and you should be aware of it and avoid it
So I studies a book called influencing phycology which deals which knowing how people thinks and how you can influence them to comply in your needs. One of them is Social proof, as people if we see other people doing something, it’s easy for us to do it as well without really think about it logically. I will make two examples on this , one is Comedians from KwaMashu who were making a joke at Workshop Durban , they joined the cue one by one , and the last person came and ask ,what’s it’s this cue for?
And the guy at the end answered, I saw them standing and I stood as well, instead of that’s guy leaving he continue the cycle, that’s was social proof at steroids. By this point you should avoid thinking like most people, question the norm, I disagree that’s life is to the internet and money will be made there, but my friend has a great conviction about that’s.
I think money has been made here already, is there potential for more of Couse, but not like before. There are industries out of here that’s will never their intrinsic value , like agriculture and transport and there are more like manufacturing stuff .So instead of all of us coming here and taking those chances , we have a better chance at dealing with energy problem and revolutionize the world. Water seems to be the problem and you can see this is taken lightly but other companies overseas are going to capitalize on it. We are surrounded by water but maybe we can figure out a way to manipulate that’s see water into a drinkable liquid ,this assumption is not coming from a science background but like you and me I’m sure that’s thought has crossed your mind. The question is why there are no efforts towards that’s .Bills are no good trust me, they limit our potential with money, If government can encourage experiments like it’s did on technology, math’s and science.
3. We all think someone has already took an initiative to fix the community problem
If as a community we are minding our businesses all the time, and dismiss what we can does as society. Only pandemics will make us realize we need each other. In my township we all assume someone has called municipality to fix electricity. Now let’s look at it this way, how quick would the problem be fixed if 10 homes call one after another? Don’t you think it will be a matter of minutes?
Fixing a road, you can do it and don’t expect praise and let it be a bonus. I heard the stories that’s high achievers and high earning people has a different way of viewing things ,Average people asks why e.g. Motsepe isn’t fixing the road from the place he grew up in or where he lives? And the response from the public figure, by staying in that’s area they add value. I agree with that’s and really supports,, now can’t you add your own value but doing something about that’s road as well ?
This is the better way to look at it as well, the famous guy earns millions and pay more tax, then average person so he has played his part already.
4. They don’t understand the discipline concept and most of them thinks it’s something else.
When I was an average person, I thought discipline is respect. I don’t know why and that’s took time to get out of my head. In a simple short made definition. Discipline for me is doing something hard for a long whole without losing enthusiasm , for example reading ,gym ,learning a certain course , writing a book , being a certain professional . All those things needs discipline. Running a YouTube channel, blog or a Facebook page, I’m not say having those things and no content no I mean really use them every day. The only thing average people do well is their jobs because its pays their bills and they’re quick to settle on a position and stop growing. Unlike the C.E.O or boss of that’s company who learn something new every day.
So I encourage you to start doing something that’s will move you self-discipline forward and really boost your brain muscle. Don’t come across a term many times and not knowing its meaning like I use to , Don’t not understand people way of thinking , that’s will help you know yourself more. As I’m writing this I pay more attention into my mind,it’s always want me to make decisions and I always need to choose the good one 80% of the time or you will never see this articles if I let the wrong side of my brain take over, the problem its will always be there, all I have to do is beat it, 90% of the time.
It’s not easy,it’s hard but that’s life and there are a lot of things that’s I still need to overcome once I do, I will come back and brag, so that’s why I need to deal with them as soon as I can. So I challenge you to comment below with things you have overcame in your life. I want to stress something here while I’m in this point, don’t be strong in one angle of your life try to balance everything. I see people who are fit but they’re broke ,they don’t take care of their money habits , you need to work on that’s as well . Others are rich and their relationships crumble and others are social media junkies like I use to still am a bit, but I’m slowly moving away cause I know what’s I want with my life
5. Because they have excuses and blame to protect themselves with
There’s a little boy here at home called Mnqobi , he has excuses and blame others for almost anything .So this is a great skill of selling ,he sells us wrong things thought he is a good manipulator and I will try to play my part to teach him responsibility and accountability. See I believe my grandmother and my mother groomed us well because now me and my brother we are able to admit to things and deal with consequences.
This got to me when I was young as a boy I was scared of belt hitting from my parents. They sometimes forgive you if you speak the truth, rarely they hit you, that’s way along the way I knew truth can set you free. So making excuses to avoid tasks or want those responsibilities is bad, kid or not it’s worse if you are an adult and you don’t take your loses like a man or a woman.
I can call it a crime, if you always, get away with your mistakes by attributing them to being other people’s deeds or they gave you wrong information or if they told me to wait. Once we all take responsibilities for our actions and inactions we will be better of. Because the day you realize that’s you are in this life alone, you will know that’s really your life is yours. You can die alongside with 10 people in a car accident but a person that’s will still matter the most to you is?
Well I was getting ready to get to bed when I started this article ,but because I don’t have any schedule ,once its hit me ,I get down to it. And I need average of 5 aticles per week to last the following week. No last minutes here so I hope you got something out of this.
