“The seminar exceeded my expectations; I have participated in many workshops during my career as a sales person and must say that I was glad to be in this one which I consider to be innovative.” P Ramsahye 15/08/2015 – Unleashing Creative Potential Mauritius

“This was one of the best seminars I have attended. I was poor in thoughts and left rich in mind. Thank you for the great course presentation” P Basantrai 18/08/2015 Unleashing Creative Potential Mauritius


My stay in Mauritius exceeded my expectations. I am not sure that my new family have worked out who I am yet, but they embraced me all the same and made me feel very welcome. Future visits will give us the opportunity to get to know each other better.

The feedback from the attendees of the two one day workshops was very positive and there has been a lot of interest in things to come. Will we turn the Island on its head, time will tell. One thing for sure, as with all that I do, I will be giving it my best shot.

The people I worked with were friendly and receptive. I was pleasantly surprised by the willingness to question the norm and explore new ideas that challenge the old established paradigms, and the eagerness to take the principles home to integrate with their families and the community at large.

The people I had the privilege of working with understood and embraced the principle of proportional exchange of energy and the dynamics that make an economy work. They are not afraid of work and agree that it is a privilege to serve while many were still grappling with the concept that their uniqueness is there greatest asset; a somewhat foreign model in a social system which traditionally embraces conformity and the need to belong.

What I found interesting in Mauritius was that I kept getting the ‘how do we make it happen?’ question and not the ‘but that will never work here!’ objection that has become the norm in South Africa. Most of the people there are hungry for the knowledge that will give them a competitive edge and that is an amazing start to Unleashing all kinds of hitherto impossibilities.

Remember the basic rule is if it is imaginable, it is possible. And once we have established the possibilities our task is to listen to our internal guidance system, the one that most people refer to as intuition; work every ‘coincidence’ that is attracted into our lives while we are growing into the person who is equal to the thing imagined. A tall order, yes, but then nothing but mediocrity has ever been achieved by the weak or faint-hearted.

If I have one criticism from my short stay on this amazing island, it is the slow pace of decision making. But I guess island life is just a little laid back. Before I left I was asked if I would invest in Mauritius, the answer is Yes! In fact I think I already have.

This month I would like to leave you with a parting thought: “Successful people don’t need permission to do what needs to be done, they don’t need others to approve, they just need to stay true to their vision of their greatest possibilities and do something every day that will take them one step closer. They know what they want; their lives are dominated by their vision of their future, so they don’t have to call a meeting to make a decision when opportunity presents itself. “



Until next time.
