A Tribute to Nelson Mandela

There is no greater person who has inspired the whole world in his quest for peace than Nelson Mandela. The world is mourning the loss of the greatest leader of all time, a man who taught people the true meaning of belief.

So much has been written, filmed and spoken about Mandela’s life, which inspired millions of people worldwide. For me one of the most unbelievable facts is that after spending 27 years in jail in the prime of his life, when he was released from prison, Nelson Mandela chose to speak of the future of South Africa rather than the 27 years he spent in a tiny cell.

This week’s mantra is dedicated to Nelson Mandela who always chose to look forward, not back and to live a life true to his beliefs no matter what it took. He had the courage and belief to live a life filled with purpose and be true to himself. By doing this, he not only inspired and changed a nation, he changed the world and his memory lives on forever.

In the words of Madiba himself:

“There is no passion to be found playing small in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”

Make a difference, live a life true to your purpose by accessing your authentic self and most of all BELIEVE, in yourself and in humanity.
