Who are you not to think highly of yourself? … By Sharon Itumeleng Bosii

cat-looking-in-mirror-lionabout-the-smart-yug---smart-yug-fk8mglan

Romans 12 states “Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you”

When I look at this scripture, I used to think that I shouldn’t think highly of myself, really I thought so! It took some rereading the scripture and thinking thoroughly about what Paul meant when he wrote this…man Paul is a deep man. Read the rest of this entry »

Genius Level Hypeman

Genius Level (4)

After being bombarded with the subtle imprinting on my subconscious that has been going on, on my twitter and bbm for what feels like almost a year now, regarding this Genius Level thing, I found myself reading the Blog. At first, I thought Genius Level was some new catch phrase with a hashtag next to it that I wasn’t quite catching on or two words that one (Kagiso) says to themselves to assure themselves that they are cool, of higher intellect than their counterparts or that they have life figured out. Mine is #LiveForever. Anyway, I took a bash at reading the blog and the further I got the more one thing became certain; I needed to contribute. And so the same way this all began, I sent a BBM and I was well on my way, and I decided to start it like this. See what I did there, the beginning had begun and I haven’t even began yet #GeniusLevel. Read the rest of this entry »

Genius Level Excalibur!!

Excalibur-Sword-in-stone

To assume everyone would know what the Excalibur is would be a rock stuck-up mistake from my part. The Excalibur is most probably thee most famous sword in history, yeh who cares about Lightsabers right?

The Excalibur is the magical sword that King Arthur alone managed to remove from the stone.

Don’t you be scared, I’m not going to quote pages from my favourite comic strip. The Excalibur simulates a very significant struggle we all should go through in order to reach that so desired Genius Level.

In the movie King Arthur, countless number of people tried countless number of times to remove the magical Sword from the stone, and attempt after attempt no one was able to remove it. Now draw a line for a moment, try thinking like there is no box and only then you will start to notice that the Excalibar that could not be removed from the stone represents everyday hardships. You will then start to see that the everyday ‘struggles’ you go through are just like the sword stuck in the stone, it is never easy to draw them out of the stone. Hell it might even take months or the famous 21 day habitual build up period to concur whatever shortcoming you are facing.

Either it be trouble waking up in the morning, trouble focusing in class, trouble concentrating in the library, trouble getting yourself to a desired discipline level, trouble coming up with brilliant innovative ideas for your marketing team, trouble getting your business out there; it could be anything that you want to achieve, one thing remains clear with these, the process of concurring these troubles will not be easy, might even be difficult or take years to accomplish. Picture all those troubles as the stone that is locking you in and holding you back from realising you full potential.

Excalibur-sword-in-an-Excalibur-movie

You may choose to give up but that only means you remain entrapped to the stone and live a very limited life of regrets and routine.

Unleash the King within and do all things possible given your drive and motivation that is well within you to draw yourself out of the stones that are holding you back.

Pressa Pusha Panda!!

Once you fully out of all things holding you back you will then realise you can wield yourself swiftly and cut through all opportunities you have been waiting for, just like the Excalibur that was useless while entrapped in the rock, once King Arthur removed is from the stone it became the most powerful sword the world has ever witnessed. Your best is awaiting……………………

Here’s To The Crazy Ones… The Ones That Let Their Ideas Outlive Them #kanyefridays

article-0-1B5EB488000005DC-513_634x506

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do” Steve Jobs

original

Here’s to the ones that got on stage and spoke their mind, here’s to the ones that let their ideas outlive them, the anomalies, the weird kids in class that just didn’t fit in, the ones who get bullied because their different take on life pisses off others, the ones who persevered even when life was throwing curve balls at them.

Barack-Obama-and-Faker

Here’s to the ones that fooled an entire nation hahahaha, the ones who got a chance to rub shoulders with world leaders, the ones who hustle their way to the top while constantly bullying the status quo and letting their crazy ideas outlive them…. Here’s to the ones that inspire us all yet we too egotistic to let them know, here’s to the game changers, the geniuses, the ones that wanna change the world.

dj-sbu(instagram)

Here’s to the ‘fosters’, the ones who don’t take no for an answer, the ones who redefine the rules and go for a kill, the ones not afraid to take risks, the ones with so much ‘fire’ they inspire a young nation that hungers for guidance… be the game changer you wanna see, be crazy, be yourself, be different. everyone can be better at everything else, but they cant be better at being you….

Genius Level Kendrick Lamar (Good Kid Mad City- An Album about The Streets, Gangs and Finding God)

download (2)

Kendrick Lamar, K Dot or Good kid. Call him whatever but one thing remains clear about him, he’s a genius; a musical, lyrical, song writing genius. Rumor has it he’s ghost written for a couple of famous acts in the industry. His music always has a message and that message can be seen in the way he sets up his albums. From Section 80 to the recent Good Kid Mad City album. In my opinion, the later is the best album of our time. I’ll even take in further and say its not an album it’s a movie, how? Well just listen………. Here’s what Drake had to say about the album

“The last great concept album was Kendrick Lamar’s good kid m.A.A.d city—still obviously true to his life but very conceptual. Very specific stories that need to be told. I always say hats off to that album, that album’s incredible, what an undertaking” Drizzy Drake

As tempting as it is, I will avoid going into the control verse controversy. I got shocked the other day when someone told me ‘Swimming Pools’ is a commercial track, really? Let me not get too excited, let’s dump it down from the start. Read the rest of this entry »

#MGM ‘Man Genius Monday’ ~ Vusi Thembekwayo

KJP3316

It’s that time of the week were we give you a genius we find interesting given their space of mind and drive.

The Man Genius Monday winner today is Vusi Thembekwayo. some of you might have seen him on Dragon’s Den South Africa, I accidentally found out about him while driving back from work listening to ‘The Money Show’ on Talk Radio 702 back in 2013 and tell you what!! tell you what! I was pretty much blown away by his drive, confidence and accomplishments at such a young age. His energy is infectious (because contagious is an outplayed word haha), he instantly commands your attention without trying, he has that type of “I’M IN THE HOUSE SHOW ME LOVE” kind of presence. He surely had me moved and still continues to keep consistent to the electrifying vybe he gave when Bruce Whitfield introduced him to me. Read the rest of this entry »

Say Hello To The Good Old Me … By Moshibudi Thatego madia

istock_000004424431small

SAY HELLO TO THE GOOD OLD YOU.

With every new thing, plans to sustain it have to be made, just like moving from one year to the next. The blessed transition into 2015 is one that is followed by bucket loads of resolutions.

In my younger years, having New Year’s resolutions was important; even though I really didn’t understand how binding they were I continued to make them, so that I’d have something to say when I get asked:”what’s your new year’s resolution?” But with age, time and faulty; uncompleted resolutions, comes wisdom. I genuinely feel like I’ve come up with the solution to the pressure of resolution making. The answer is that we are not perfect, therefore we can’t set perfect resolutions, we need to come to a point where we realize that resolutions aren’t the gauge to measure how successful we’ve been in that year, but rather they are a way of encouraging goal setting.
