Marcus’ Book – STRONG, FEARLESS, COURAGEOUS
Being a human is not easy. From the day of your birth, a difficult but exciting walk begins. The walk of the mighty human. This walk comes with pitfalls, emotions, difficulty, choices, decisions, victories and defeats, influences, and so many other life variables. Humans have been designed to navigate through these things and come out victorious on the other side. You need to know how to navigate.
This book offers advice and guidance on how to walk this human walk with excellence, power, and freedom. This book is for those that are at the starting point of this journey, for those who are walking this journey, and for those who have walked a long way on this journey. We can always learn, no matter where we are on this human journey.
NAVIGATE to start doing, stop doing, keep doing
After each chapter I have added a blank page titled, NAVIGATE to start doing, stop doing, keep doing. This is for you to decide what action you want to take on this human journey to be great. It’s about course correction if need be. Course correction needn’t be complex. Often, your course correction is easy to recognise and is totally under your control. Always remember that you are in charge of your life and your decisions.
BEING SUCCESSFUL AS A HUMAN BEING IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN JUST BEING A SUCCESSFUL HUMAN BEING.
— Marcus van Wyk.
