Gary Player on Discipline & Exercise

Gary shares the story of how his brother motivated him to become whatever he wanted. His brother gave him a set of weights and instructed him to keep training for the rest of his life. Gary was a mere 9 years old when he made his brother that promise to train every day and started working on his dream. Today, Gary is still going to the gym every day at the age of 84. He decided at a young age to become a professional sportsman, and through hard work and dedication, and of course daily discipline, he created an active and healthy lifestyle for himself. Gary talks about the poor lifestyle choices people are making today. He reckons that most kids are obese because they have a poor lifestyle, taught by their parents. He believes exercising and healthy eating habits would be part of the education system. We feel encouraged to eat healthily and train every day, how about you? #Motivation #lifestyle #Exercise To learn more about the producers of this channel go to: https://www.instagram.com/storiesthatinspiresa/ https://www.facebook.com/StoriesThatInspireSA --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/stories-that-inspire/message

Gary Player on Discipline & Exercise

Brand Pretorius shares his take on Ethical Leadership

Brand Pretorius led a massive corporate turnaround by means of Ethical Leadership. According to Brand, Integrity is the crucial currency that leaders should have in order to be effective. Leadership is not Charisma, but rather Character. It is not Personality, but rather a Principle-based. It is not a way of behaving, but a way of Being. When a leader behaves unethically, he/she discredit themselves, and can't lead effectively. Their followers will feel unsafe and will not trust them. This leads to reluctant compliance instead of commitment. Unethical leaders start cancer in their organisation because you can't have two sets of values. #integrity #leadership #Inspire To learn more about the producers of this channel go to Instagram Facebook --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/stories-that-inspire/message

Eradicating Poverty

The investment one makes in one's own people delivers a phenomenal disproportional return. With the top 10% of South Africans earning 58% of the country's total income, while the bottom 50% only earn 8%, it is an illustration of the unacceptable inequality that still exists. We are creating a breeding ground for massive social unrest. There is a solution though. We have to create a more inclusive economy and a more equal distribution of wealth. We should make investments in the development of smaller black entrepreneurs and support them in their journey to success by mentoring them and offer them a share in our businesses. They become living examples of the value they bring in the organisations they are involved in. It creates positive momentum. #quotes #motivate #inspire #goals #motivation #inspiration To learn more about the producers of this channel go to www.wasteplan.co.za Bertie Lourens is on the search for exceptional South Africans to interview.
