The moment you realize that the word impossible doesn’t exist in the book of life your life will change for the better.

I have had a YouTube Channel for a few years now, but only started using it right in 2019. I must say, I thought I loved picture more than anything but producing content through media is a joy for me.
It’s the transformation for me more than just being behind the lenses. Every time I do this I realize how i’m so much of a creative and a teacher. I love to see others WIN.
Some measure success by what you have only learned for you but mine is beyond that, when I WIN I know that someone else out there is winning.
A very close example is seeing my baby sis achieving a goal that she’s been longing for, and being there to witness it encouraged me more.
So you see, my success transfers to others.

RealTalkWithNthabi is now an official brand and the channel puts a stamp on what I need to do, which is empowering and transforming others through my passion as a designer and brand builder, through my journey of self-motivation which became a huge blessing to thousands around the world. I don’t know what tomorrow holds but I know that what I do today will influence my tomorrow.

Being in the social world one thing I have learned is to remain true to who I am.
Oprah Winfrey, an amazing woman I look up to once said, When you undervalue what you do, the world will undervalue who you are.” She also said, With every experience, you alone are painting your own canvas, thought by thought, choice by choice.
I choose my truth, I choose to trust the process, I choose to keep working on my craft and I choose to be consistent in what I love the most.
With that said, live, love, pray, meditate, smile, dance, work and be happy.

In 2008, I took a decision to drop out of university. At the time I was enrolled with University of the North West famously known as UNIBO. I will tell you next time why I dropped out, today is about #business. In 2009, I registered with Tshwane University of Technology where I studied a diploma In Web Applications and Development & no I didn’t drop out I graduated 🎓

My family used to send me R 500 per month, with this amount I had to pay rent R350 and the remaining R 150 was for food, cosmetics and everything else I needed. You probably wondering what you can buy with R150 these days, it’s not enough to buy much but I had to make it work.

One Friday, after class as I was walking to my room, a guy driving a grey MEGANE stopped me and offered to take me out for dinner, it was around 5:30 pm at the time, I quickly thought of what I had in my grocery cardboard and it was half white bread 🥪 , morvite, potatoes 🥔 , and minestrone soup. Can you guess what I did? Well, I went to the date and ordered steak and chips. I cleaned the plate knowing that eish back in my room there’s no much food, fast forward, he gave me R100; I was so excited, thinking of what I can do with it. Monday, I’m in class with my friend, lunch time I tell him all about the Friday date. He asked me this “Do you know this person? What’s his intention?” it didn’t matter at the time; we bought “KOTA’s” with that money. Only later I wondered? So next time this guy will give me R200, then I can be able to buy myself a pair of jeans 👖 at Mr. Price and more stuff I needed. Mmmh could this work? What will he want in return? Is it worth it? Question after Question.

I remembered that I dropped out, my old friends have graduated and I am still working on my diploma, in our language we used to say #REJA COURSE “meaning, we working towards passing”

I started doing promotions, sold Avon products, with the commission I made I would buy myself cosmetics from Avon and have few rands to buy bread and 6 dozen of eggs. In the library, I would put the Avon plastic in front of me and leave my card for people to contact me later, lunchtime or breaks I got in between, I’d knock at every resident in campus and sell the products. Some days were good, some bad but I kept working on it and finding strategies to make people buy.

I became a sales representative and started earning R 1000 per month when I reach my targets. If I can manage to be a student and sales lady at the same time, what could stop me from doing business? NOTHING AT ALL! There you have it, Nthabi Mokgosi started somewhere and she’s going far.

It’s our anniversary…

5 years ago I registered my company when I was still in tertiary when I realized that my design skills can actually build something great for me.

I slowly built the business, from one client to 10, dropped from 10 to 5 clients as some were not paying and that affected the business. It grew again from 5 to over 100 clients and still going strong.

#Howidoit 
Believe it or not, I have a 9 – 6 Job too, which means I need to prioritize it and do my company work after hours and on weekends.

#ILDBIZTIP 
Don’t give up on your dream, understand that you need to start somewhere in life and along the way, there will be ups and downs. 
Keep your head up and keep working on yourself to get better and do better.

TOTAL SOUTH AFRICA PAD
DRIVE IMPACTING LIVES 

Women’s Day Celebrated packing goodies for the disadvantaged girls in school

kindlefire-logotan@2x
With the theme RED, BLACK & PINK Total South Africa started Women’s month with giving hope to those in need. Total SA identified a school in Mpumalanga that needed help with sanitary towels and cosmetics in general. As realtalkwithnthabi, we had the honor to witness the wonderful work done by the company and mostly women employees from Total SA.

Divided we fall, together we stand

This a quote that summarises the unity we witnessed at Total SA. All the Women from Total SA gathered in one place to pack gifts for the identified school. The items included sanitary towels, toothpaste and more.

BOGATSU PRIMARY SCHOOL IN RUSTENBURG, TLOKWENG

Real Talk With Nthabi with the assistance of TOTAL SA’s sponsorship has donated sanitary towels to Bogatsu Primary School in Rustenburg. The School was represented by Principal, Kedisaletse Molokwane & Makole Letswalo, who is now one of the young ambassadors of Real Talk With Nthabi Foundation.

I Empower & Transform.

I am who I decide to be each and every day. I am who I choose to be each day.. God being my center, my guide and driver I see greatness.

#BALANCE
You will lose small battles in order to win the WAR, but this requires you to balance your life. You need to differentiate and find a balance between what you can and cannot change. Choosing to step back doesn’t mean you’re a failure or a coward for that matter, it means you can see when to stop and take a step back.

#ACTION
What you claim to be capable of remains invisible until you decide to ACT. I’ve learned that your imagination can excite you in seeing the end result but if you don’t start painting that image it will remain unseen.

#TENACITY
You can overcome anything by being tenacious. Set high goals and never give up. It’s tempting to take the easy way out but it’s not worth it… Your battle is that you want to start running before gaining the stamina to do so, start walking and build on it. Step by Step!

#TRANSFORMATION
Transformation starts by you making a decision. All the life coaches, Mentors etc. cannot make a decision for you, but only guide your path and share the knowledge that you weren’t aware of. I challenge to always ask yourself why you do what you do, when you do it while you at it answer this Are you doing it for you or others?

#LEARNING
You can never stop learning! Every day is a chance to learn something new. Discover new things that can benefit your life.

#EFFICIENCY
I had my share of not being efficient at time and I realised that I’m risking my chances of being progressive and building my empire. If you don’t take yourself serious, no one will and what you put on the table is what you will be WORTH.
Take time to evaluate yourself, to see where you lacking and work on that.

Dear Lord, I often spend my time worried and unhappy about things that may never happen and yet I know that this is not only wrong in Your sight but it is affecting me and my relationship with my friends and family.

Change me Lord from the inside out so that I do not fret and worry about things that may never happen but help me rather to focus my mind on what is good and lovely and give others the support and encouragement that they need – and not expect others to address the needs and concerns that I have.

Lord I know that I can never change on my own – but I know that when I allow You to work Your good work through me I will show forth Christ’s love in my life and not my own selfishness. Lord I know that without You I cannot change but I praise You that I can do all things – including changing my attitude through Christ Who gives me the strength – thank You Lord for Your everlasting grace towards me, in Jesus name I pray,

Amen
