In Need of 'UnCommon' Sense that seems to escape
The Power of Choice
Every day we are given the opportunity to re-evaluate who we think we are; how we interact with and contribute to the experience we call life and the community in which we find ourselves.
For some life is an invigorating and inspiring experience, while for others life is something to be endured. But for all of us our interaction with our day, and every circumstance it brings, is a personal choice. Our choice activates the law of cause and effect, creating our joy or sadness and lays the path to our amazing or dismal future. We always have the choice!
The questions I always need to ask myself at the end of the day are:-
- Am I overcoming or succumbing to my life's challenges?
- What have I contributed to my world?
- Did I create more than I have consumed?
- What have I learnt about myself today that is and will continue to add value to my future possibilities?
Irrespective of our starting point, we all have within us the creative energy and tools to fashion a future far more amazing that our current circumstances. Every new vantage point achieved gives us another opportunity to expand our vision and continue the process, in accordance with our chosen point of focus. Life is a non-judgemental, exponential and infinite progression of choices, changes and consequences.
When I was in my twenties, desperate to escape from all my sub-economic background and perceived handicaps; poverty, partial deafness, numerous learning disorders and the fact that I had never finished school to name but a few: I applied my mind and embarked on a self created learning experience that was destined to dramatically change the way I saw and experienced the world.
I made it my business to spend time with dropouts and homeless people. I intuitively knew I needed to understand how life had brought them to this place. Their stories were very diverse, some like me had come from 'disadvantaged backgrounds' and had very little formal schooling but to my amazement others came from affluent families, had attended university, were failed entrepreneurs, corporate executives and professionals. All had a common theme, they were all stuck in their past: "what went wrong ...; being a victim of ...; the list was endless, they were all playing the blame game and not accepting any responsibility for the part they were playing in their experiences leading up to their present circumstances.
During the same period I also made appointments with successful business owners, all of whom had started from scratch; not people who had taken over family businesses.
Many of them had very little formal education; started with no capital, had set backs due to poor choices in partnerships and/or marriages ... had lost everything through unwise decisions... the list was endless, and they all had common themes; they accepted personal responsibility for whatever happened in their past; they got back up; wiser and more robust; took their focus off the past and refocused on their desired outcome. And immediately went to work on even bigger dreams; they never played the victim card.
I had inadvertently discovered the natural law of attraction; "The Universe helps all of us manifest our consciousness as our personal reality."
This opened the gateway to ongoing learning, giving me the life experience and wisdom that has become the foundation of my work and the wealth and abundance of my reality. I had found buried within me the manual for a life of opulence that was unimaginable as a child.
On Saturday the 16th of February I will be doing my insightful and practical one day workshop, "The You within You"
at my venue in Gauteng, South Africa. Re introducing you to your personalised copy of the Human Manual. Yes we did come with one, despite popular beliefs to the contrary. There are only a few seats available. I hope to see you sitting in one of them, chose wisely invest in yourself.
Yours in growth and conscious evolution.

The Re-Inventing Me workshop was facilitated with the unique blend of wisdom, insight, passion and enthusiasm of Dave, whose life experience demonstrates that there is always a better way when we have the courage to overcome our fear of change and follow our heart.
The feedback from the participants bears testimony to the profound insights received; the way Dave challenged their thinking and encouraged them to examine their beliefs at times incited resistance and interesting thought provoking debates. Dave certainly gave everyone much to think about and most importantly the realisation that impossible is a self-limiting belief that can be overcome by making conscious intelligent choices and that our life is a personal responsibility.
For me it is simply having a clear intention of overcoming a fear based attitude that leads to victim hood, by choosing to see life’s challenges as opportunities for growth.
Resistance to change is resistance to life itself; the cause of much suffering. Change being the only constant in the universe and the source of perpetual uncertainty, it makes sense that if instead of resisting and fearing the unknown we chose to embrace our fear and respond to its invitation to be courageous and face our personal limitations, we will find excitement in every challenge and adversity.
It is ignorance of who we really are and of universal laws that manifests as fear. Our evolutionary journey summons us to keep re-inventing ourselves, to make conscious decisions aligned with our intentions in order to express and experience our own magnificence.
The simple tools offered during the workshop has the potential to transform lives, but it is up to us to apply them. I look forward to Dave’s next workshop; the “You within You” exploring the tool-box for the creation of infinite possibilities, it is one of my favourite.
The upcoming TAG-REIKI
workshop on the 23-24 February will introduce you to yet another aspect of who you are and equip you with simple practical tools to make the most of the universal energy that flows through you.
We are primarily energetic beings and the quality, focus and command of our energy affects every area of our lives. Join us for a fun empowering weekend; learn to work with the law of cause and effect and consciously improve the quality of your life in and on every level.
May love light your way always
