Power Begins In The Mind

Tshepiso speaks to Bianca Williams

Humanity has been blessed with the Earth and all its eco diversity. But are we aware that true power lies in the mind and do we know how to use it? I spoke to a friend of mine and a Campaign for Girls mentor, Tshepiso Ramotsehoa, Af- rica’s youngest Consciousness Coach, about what she does and what power means to her.

BW: So tell us, what do you actually do? TR: I am a Life and Business Coach by profession. I stud- ied through Creative Consciousness International, an inter- national Coaching Academy now based in Johannesburg, South Africa.

BW: What/who inspired you to take that route? TR: The world is changed and made better in so many ways and in so many lives by ‘change agents’. Having seen how Life Coaching changed my life, I wanted to share the tools with more people. To equip people to take charge of their lives and start creating as opposed to being victims of cir- cumstance.

BW: Why are you so passionate about Consciousness Coaching? TR: I believe we all have it in us to achieve amazing things and go even further than we think we can go, in any sphere of life. Sometimes all we need are the right tools to create an opening where there once wasn’t or get you out of the slump you may be in, or even help you get to the next level of suc- cess or personal awareness. We are faced with tough times and sometimes we may feel stuck, Consciousness Coach-

ing has tools that will bring clarity and commitment. There are other coaching methodologies and there are also people who call themselves coaches who don’t have the training or education to coach people. Consciousness Coaching is an accredited method, accredited with the International Coach- ing Federation, it’s one of the best.

BW: What is the importance of getting your mind in order to achieve set goals? TR: We all have a friend or relative who talks about what they are going to do, or who have a wealth of knowledge but who just never seem to actually do anything. The only way to get things done in life, is to actually do them. I know it may sound simple and yes it is, if you are in the space mentally to look at what you want to achieve or the life you want to live and then do the work to ensure that you do. If you are not mentally prepared to do the work, you won’t, or at the first sign of a challenge you will justify giving up. Mental strength is a huge part of success.

BW: What do you think about the power of the mind? TR: There is a saying “thoughts become things” and it is so true! You bring about what you think about and you become who you think you will be. My mentor, Kagiso Msimang, al- ways says, “where energy flows, things grow”. Thoughts are pure energy and you are constantly giving that energy be- cause you are always thinking. It is so important to be aware of your dominating thoughts and to see what they are creat- ing. So often, people think of the future and make it scarier than it will be or think of the past and make it seem better than it was. If we are constantly floating between the past and the future if leave little time to focus and appreciate the present. Consciously filling the mind with positive, enrich- ing and enhancing content, lessons, info, music, memories, people...this daily activity will change your life... quote me on that! ■
