Welcome to another piece of the most popular subject of the moment Covid19. Disclaimer this is not a professional advice it’s a survival skill from an ordinary person for more in depth advice contact a doctor or a proven facts on the web. Here is a discipline and a new habit you need to cultivate to not be caught by this virus
Be paranoid and don’t mind looking stupid
You life is at stake you need to do what’s ever in order to survive until this hell hole we find in pass or can be contained.
Wear masks and face shield ,have your own little sanitizer for on the go situations especially if you like me and about to get to a work place where there has been numerous cases of this pandemic ,gloves should be your friend as well as your overall hygiene.
Wash regularly your clothes & hands even have a uniform remaining at work don’t take it home with you and maybe you can consider using a laundry if you can afford it.
Take medication before it’s seems necessary
This doesn’t mean drug yourself but already vitamins boosters tablets and so on are recommend.
Getting back to to Our popular qoute eat your food like medicine or you will end up eating your medicine like food , personally I don’t enjoy eating things like garlic and lemon that’s is being recommended but if that’s what’s its takes to prevent in advance than its a best call cause any medical inconvenience cause a serious distress.
The obvious keep away from crowded places
This may mean waiting for a month end craziness settle down. Or do your grossing earlier or use internet shopping and get things delivered on your doorstep.
Follow the laws in place putted by your government and professional doctors and stop sharing cigar and unnecessary hangouts.
Embrace technology and use it for good not just social media ,use your zoom and skype to conference and keep the work going increase your chances of being indoors until there’s is a cure or a proven system to get covid out of a person system and live normally again.
But even when that’s day come you should be able to live virus free by keeping the above good habits.
Don’t physically contact other people and keep a distance if you don’t have mask on
Kissing and hugging as well as shaking hand are already old way of showing love so don’t be stubborn and act foolish like anyone else.
You know at first I didn’t take this virus serious up until people I respect got affected business wise ,for starters I didn’t watch tv since 2018 January but lately I had to watch president speak cause his restrictions affected me in many ways.
But what’s I got clearly eirlier on was the fact that’s its all on me ,if I continue the old way I will get burnt so do you ,keep social distancing and conspiracy or not we will all be fools so don’t try to be a special case and think this doesn’t exist because you haven’t see live in action.
It’s time to enjoys and disable tension within your valuable relationships
This may look out of the subject but by seeing this chance as a way to bond with your family you will come out strong than trying to run away from them cause you are not use to be with them since job takes all your time.
Working from home has obviously shown another side of life that’s you were oblivious from or having your patner layed of make it seems like he/she wants your love more or they want to take out their stress on you.
But if you can look at it positively and enjoy the moment that’s can be quickly taken and give her/ him all the love with the time that’s just presented itself now you will thrive even in the future.
Seeing you housewife how she spends her day shouldn’t get to you cause what’s ever you see ,if she had to follow you at work all day you can be uneasy too so let it be and understand you choose this arrangement long time ago and minor inconveniences should derail both of you.
Well starting this blog ,like any other of my posts I rarely think I can make it to point number five as I almost gave up at 3 ,but I had to be focus and give you the best information I can..

Maybe I have talked about my hustle in other articles but here is dedicated to just that’s and the mindset, work ethic, and more. There will be no particular order in this advice and lesson’s. The goal of today’s piece like “Steve Jobs” is to help you think differently. There was a speech by the man himself saying dogma were man-made that’s doesn’t mean we should keep following them so I will share the way I move so far to reach my financial freedom and I will be honest it’s not easy.
Don’t be a consumer ,be a saver and an investor
My first job was Toyota and I worked there for 2 and half years and its was enough for me to start building my own cash cow, which was rental rooms. My retrenchment came at the right time while I was thinking of buying the car the following year and thanks god because I already had my driver’s license then around 2017 ,I have drove once or twice ever since and I don’t mind cause I know if I love a car I will have to break my own.
My living strategy was saving and then I had no much commitment and my girlfriend was out of high school she was perfect for me I was stingy probably still am.
By the time I left a job I had around 250k plus 50k from provident fund so I still had to figure out my move of how I will save this money, life was good then no stress up until I started building rental rooms.
Be ready to fail big and consistently
Loss and failure is the name of the game, but I don’t want to make it sound lightly this is where people give up and to be honest I don’t blame them but giving up completely is a bad call.
Here is what’s I did during working building my rooms, I listened to financial education on YouTube and listened to business people there and I read books a lot and tried to emulate their work ethic and by the time the black sworn come I was prepared mentally like the book unfuck yourself by Gary bishop, its re-enforce what’s I already know in business if things are going to well something bad is really coming and you didn’t attract it its just laws of nature.
Although Bob Procter seems to disagree so that’s pessimists will stop being negative about starting something new, that some businesses do succeed without major failure or it’s not true that’s people get broke at 30 it’s just what’s pessimist pay attention to and there is always the good and bad side, for you to succeed you need to try to look at the former.
Something terrible happened and rooms were closed and there was no source of income at least one but it was not even close to what’s rooms pay me, that 2018 and stress took a couple of days and couldn’t sleep and ended up keeping my distance from that’s building and look at it objectively not as my retirement fund.
The risky come back
Its 2020 and that’s like now and my rooms are back and things seems to be going well but there is a lot at stake you guys can pray for me to be able to fix all that’s needs fixing before I run into the dip of failure again.
My successful grandfather who supports me in my hustle and who I support a bit in his gave me strength during the first disaster and told me not to sell and I listened and now I’m back and this year he loaned me 40k to down payment another property and I’m very grateful about that’s.
This will be my third small rooms and more cash flow and few debts that I will settle by the end of the year now more risks, am I scared a little do I get stressed now and then yes a lot like when buying a new house there is a lot that’s can go wrong and I tried reaching out to elders and turns out there is no one I’m on my own and I have got used to that.
Your dreams and your better future is your and entrepreneurs or business-minded people are not in a luxury of living a risk-free life because there is none anyway, people who are not investing in the better future of their livelihood are preparing themselves for unmanageable catastrophes and be not one of those people and take control and charge of your life.
My DNA like Gary Vee usually says doesn’t feel my sacrifices as something I deny myself to do or enjoy is just part of how real life is supposed to be. The problem is school and in church, we are not taught to delay gratification although bible touches on Jesus being a sacrifice the main challenge with Christ deed he left his people free ride in religion and according to hustle without sacrifice, there are no fruits and worse if the bible says there is already someone who has sacrificed himself for your sins, chances are you will keep sinning knowing you will be cleansed in altar every Sunday.
The starting from the bottom is not like that’s in that respect, you have to be in harm’s way and be willing to get burned for your life dream ever since I was in high school I had a picture of the life I want and to be honest is was more like of other people but sooner.
Now tables have turned with new insight and growing I have new plans and no rush of settling down cause I know that’s might slow me down, the hunger, drive, and unforced discipline is still part of my life enjoyment like writing this I had to be in another zone and most people cannot do that.
I have sacrificed most of my normal senses and developed new ones, for example, I’m no longer used to laugh out loud, I try to not be tense and be easy to talk to yet I know if I am in a working environment I’m very strict and pushy and it’s very awkward and the paranoid is keeping my eyes open all the time no matter the setting I’m in, I feel the tension and correct myself quickly if I get out of line and I spend most time alone few likeminded people here and hanging out with them cause us to talk more than do but we motivate each other and know we on the right track.
This is a quarter of my story
Having a thick book is not a easy task, having a book at all is a huge achievement cause people will benefits from your existence. By clipping my life here I’m portraying a picture things might be going well for you, have a job and a family and business you saved it for later and I agree not all people should do the same thing.
But being in control of your future and your time and how you spend it and opening your eyes with good books and really see the depth of life, but writing this I wish you to be curious and learn more do more and with your leisure time listen to audio books and biographies of successful people.
Look you may be a millionaire in your own right and knowing money when you have it you don’t change that’s much, yes you effort quality things even your skin is moisturized but still, your mindset is your and humility, love or hate of other people is still there.
Less than 3 million seems like you have something but by your standards you know you can have more and the tricky part is how you measure that’s worth if it’s liquid cash you might consider better investment tools or if it’s fixed in one property or maybe is in your personal assets than you are not rich but I’m sure you know this by now.
For those who are at the bottom and want to go up, here is one advice: avoid doing what’s many people do and follow what’s rich people do by listening to their advice and looking at how they handle themselves and lastly help the rich to get started cause if you help the poor at this stage they will drag you down with them. Go up and share wisdom and anyway you can help but don’t get swayed easily.
The real challenge is starting, when you in you can focus and get things done and a point across. Thank you for coming over and really use your curiosity for good cause there are lot of titles online and they’re no good hope I’m not one of those. I know I’m not the amusing type but please keep this Blog nearby or bookmark it my live journey will be printed here as well as our music hustle as LnM, Aka ULwaz No Makhula please like the page aside for the fun of it.

It’s going to be hard taking time looking at this but you might guess that’s I will talk about tax or whatever but you will be surprised because it seems so basic but most man, woman boy and girl experience it. I wish I was a statistic guy and a research individual but I’m not ,I use experience and facts that’s we all know or maybe dismissed but now is a great time to realize this before it’s too late.
Male and female sexual thinking in general sense
This is not addressed anywhere not in early schooling or middle schooling and unless it’s a concentrated cause universities don’t teach it. Apart from your own brain thinking about these things you might wonder why this is important to me.
Well here is an example a mind of a male thinks about lot of things during the day but once a woman comes across his face his mind get distracted a bit or throughout the day ,especially if a woman is wearing clothes that’s shows most of her sexy parts of the body.
In our today’s society the dress codes are not a matter of a subject but they should, another example how you dress your teenage girl is a different between her becoming a victim of rape or her equal age boys touching her or your daughter being seen otherwise and respected. It will be a great habit for a mom to teach a child not to revile her body and as in church they say your body is a temple of the lord.
We know that’s member’s of family your uncles aunts and older siblings touches little girls and boys and end up abusing the kids sexually but we don’t know how long they endure the temptations leading to those moments.
I’m not giving anyone a way out for me as a uncle I have a responsibility to control my mind and feelings or not recommended but a better option self help and get rid of a steam than hurt another girl or a child and turn to a monster.
The way woman dress in the beach ,well we all out there having a good time we shouldn’t make a big deal out of it right? Wrong, just tell me what do should men do? But for now self control and men love their partners enough not to consider the booty they saw.
There were a video couple of girls raping a guy, and it’s reached the right people and law took care of it. For man that’s was a horrible gangbang towards a woman but for a man this guy was stupid not to take advantage of that’s moment right? Again wrong this male asked for a protection on the video there was none ,and all the sexual transmitted disease after math was going to be his problem ,leave that’s not say his belief if he is a religious person physiologically he is going insane and can potentially kill himself if he doesn’t get help.
Back to men guys we are far from being saints but our sh*t is out there and maybe the law will get hard on us and its should but I want to talk to you in the individual sense ,the need to prove a point should not be an option to you especially if its mean beating your loved one. Here is another example if you are a grown up and you find yourself fighting with your mother having a serious conversation do you resort to beating her up? No, why not? Isn’t that’s you know how valuable your mother is to you ,she groomed you as a baby fed you and say now she’s a reason you lost your job but you still find a way to forgive her.
Your girlfriend is not your mother or your wife is not your bloodline but maybe you have kids together and its easy for me to say cause im not there yet, but since she is your mother of your kid’s would you put booze aside and think of the wellbeing of the children and the wellbeing of her and yourself after this is history after 10 years?
I know people here are not planning to do something bad, last week I beat a guy and I don’t carry any weapon he stole my t-shirts while it was on the line and I caught him by luck, the decision of hurting him came with some small consequences my hand had pains at night, I anticipated his move but he got scared and I built an enemy,there is no justification for what’s I did cause I would’ve reacted differently but human nature played it role.
My thinking went like this,at home there are only boys if someone does this take us for granted and treat us like girls ,I will teach him a lesson also realize if I don’t beat him since I caught him in the store the guys there won’t respect me at all and want to take chances with me so I was proving the point to everyone who was watching just don’t mess with me. Other than that’s I’m a nice guy.
Are you a kind of person who rub their dirt into other people? Or you never take responsibility it’s a habit you cultivated back in school? Maybe it’s time for you to change. Yesterday at work with my Forman we were discussing a bible the theory that’s Adam & Eve didn’t want to take the … Continue reading Why it’s important to admit when you are wrong→

Instead of winging it you decided to learn on the topic. DISCLAIMER: You may also need to get … Continue reading How to spend your first/early paychecks (Salary/ Wage)→
You may say people always talk about this one but I saw a post this week saying how to start a business while they meant how to register a company and look for funding. You see I find it’s hard to comments on such posts because the poster possibly don’t run any business and people who appreciate the free advice don’t consider that’s.
Now on the internet teaching people how to start a business is a business on itself and YouTube is that businessman revenue. I want to clarify my position here, I do have some kind of fundamental understanding of a business because I reach about it and I have things that’s pays me money every month but my advice might not work for you.
But I will share anyway the best way I have been doing it, first getting a job has been the most important part of my learning process and getting money to start whatever I want to start, but maybe you can find capital elsewhere but not all business needs capital from an idea you can make money, that’s is if you work hard and smart with your idea. Here was my idea to prove a point I had a second hand machine that’s someone gave me for free after helping him on building his blocks.
Then I had the idea, what’s if there are people out there that are needs blocks who already have a concrete floor and they want to save money and don’t buy bricks at the hardware and want to build them themselves. I putted out 50 cent each poster around my place which written I make blocks R1 each you buy material we build them for you and my phone number.
Then I was in business with a friend and he left since it was hard but we did get paid and if we didn’t stop we would have viable business now, I was already in R1,30 and making a nice profit and manage to hire one guy. This is even before I think of registering a business, no loan or funding just making it happen. You might have MBA degree in business and you have a better definition on how to start a business you can comment below, I’m just saying this subject is not taught well enough because people who teach want to lead people to conferences and make money out of them.
If you want me to make money why charge me the little I have instead of encouraging me to put it in my business? Be careful buying causes and products online, I might make them in the future but trusting me now will make it easy for you to count on me, if I do I will rather get paid from a business profit not you.
Power of the internet
This point supports the previous article check it out, internet is powerful yet very shinny and destructive don’t build your life around it but at least build your business or company around it. This means you get people to push what are needs to be pushed there and get back your life into a certain extent, do it as well but being too religious about it will cost you two most precious things time and money.
The branding side of things,I have realized what’s is branding ,branding is what’s people associate with your name or company here is an example to get you in the right path here is brand in a nutshell coca cola red and white ,smiling people and a 55ml bottle that’s branding seeing this all over its easy for me to associate with a cold drink. What are you doing online without the features explained above?
Your color your fonts and your message ,for an average consumer internet is a second home but let not be you have a life that’s is not based on what’s people said on face book ,twitter or anywhere build your own identity and brand yourself in real life and supply real products that’s you believe in and uses yourself.
Here is the recommended power of internet and there still you should not overindulge, that’s personal development articles like this and Google good information as well as YouTube how to videos and downloading books and go offline and read them less novels more biographies of successful people and personal development books and business books even if you won’t be in business philosophies will help your life.
Imposter syndrome and social proof
This one is not for general public is for you, if you have read so far thank you now here is the meaning of the subtitle, you will read the above things and conclude that’s you can’t do it and doubt yourself that’s imposter syndrome and you don’t want to have that’s disease cause you will never amount to anything if you do. You can change your life , you can control your feelings and anger ,you can take charge of what’s your girl or boy wears ,read ,eat and do while they are still under your supervision and you can stop a bad habit ,by not talking about it ,thinking about it or hanging around it or dismiss it while it’s in front of you.
Don’t copy especially things that’s you don’t understand why people do them, don’t follow the crowd and be your own man or woman and live your life differently all of that’s just a social proof, if most people do it be the exception and that’s way your whole life will. Value your time and other people’s time ,I know some people don’t like me because I hardly commit into anything ,if I do I ask for money if I’m free that’s my problem don’t add stuff and your silly dreams on me.
I love and respect people and I get wrong sometimes but trust me all of the above is worth it. In closing I want to tell you the painful experience I’ve been experiencing lately and its will pass , a girl I met on twitter showed interest and we talked for a while and we ended up dating and then all of the sudden she dropped me without a word ,I might have said things as well but she’s straight up rude right now and here is my lesson in this painful as it is ,for me is one of those experiences that’s makes me want to be so successful in life that’s I will wonder why this moment of might life was such a big deal anyway. I love and respect woman but that’s one I feel sorry for her.
