New Year Resolutions - Week 35 Achievements & Failures #TheLifesWay

Hi Friends, 

Week 35 - Sat 27 Aug 2022 - Fri 02 Sep 2022

Week 35 will complete the month of August 2022 which has seen a lot of new smartphones and so many new gadgets getting launched in South Africa. I am so grateful for this week as I came across various new stuff which made its way into my life unexpectedly. You never know what randomness in your life can bring you the results you always desired for yourself. Keep your curiosity levels high always and keep exploring friends!!!

1. Entertainment - I watched the Season 2 of Maharani and fell in love again with the acting of Huma Qureshi and started watching Season 3 of Criminal Justice: Adhura Sach which now is coming as a weekly episode and it's really irritating but watching is only due to Pankaj Tripathi. I don't like to wait for the same so thought that The House of Dragons I will watch only in a single go. I will keep watching Criminal Justice and The Rings of Power every Friday along with She-Hulk on Disney+ to make it a fun weekend. I also watched the HIT: The First Case movie and found it to be a total waste of time as I have already seen the original South Indian movie in the Telugu language on Amazon Prime Video. 

2. Walking - I completed 678.5 kilometres against the target of 700 kilometres. There is a gap of 21.5 kilometres and I am starting to get tired in my target but with Ensure Vanilla flavoured drink, I plan to get the energy levels high again to complete my target of 1000 kilometres by 31 Dec 2022. This week I did my first 10 kilometres at the SA motoring festival and my heart rate reached 200 after which I had to take a whole day of rest and sleep. Keep your heart rate measured and take proper rest to not let it reach those dangerous points. 
New Year Resolutions - Week 35 Achievements & Failures #TheLifesWay
3. Launch Events - I went to attend the iStore Meets at the GIBS campus and took a sunset photograph which they loved and sent me their campus hoodie along with a selfie light. Many thanks to them. Also, I attended the Nikon South Africa event where I got the Refuse camera shoulder bag for the daily carry of my Canon M50 camera with Rode VideoMic and Joby Gorillapod 3k Kit for all my video needs. I also attended the YouTube Shorts Coffee meet where they announced the closure of #GivemeYourBestShort trend and also told me that they are going to send some personalized goodies our way. I am eagerly waiting for my second YouTube package to arrive. Check out the other videos below and enjoy! 
4. Thank You - I completed the 100k mark this month twice so doubly grateful that I could do that. I need to buy more counters from China Mall as I keep losing them or sometimes they stop working if fallen on the ground. I took the counter again to 12000 and then back to zero and again to 2600 to close the week. If I get time I will calculate if I have crossed the 1Million ThankYou mark I set to do in this year. 
5. YouTube Earnings - I completed a complete month of YouTube monetisation this month and still the same videos are contributing towards the daily cents that are coming my way. In total, I earned USD 34.75 in the month of August-2022. I still am in search of a video which has to go viral to take my subscriber base into 5 figures and maybe then I can earn more than 100 dollars a month. 

Other than that I have several pending actions which are only written in the Bullet Journal but never got completed pending LIC premium payment, booking/checking Honda Civic service and all the pending video reviews of several gadgets I own. Getting into focus and staying there is the only superpower you should aim for. It should be like that you can switch it On in a pinch or clap. I am definitely aiming for this superpower in my life.

SA creative, Louis du Pisani, Partners with Skycastle Studios to Launch the Card Game #DUNGEONBRAH

Hi Friends, 

Dungeon Brah is a comical deck crawler card game created by Louis du Pisani, a South African-born and bred creative. It will be released globally on the 20th of September 2022 by Skycastle Studios.

Dungeon Brah was launched worldwide by Skycastle Studios – a sister company in Solarpop
The card game is a universe in which players, their ragtag crew and hired heroes pilfer the catacombs to battle Cat’hulhian beast Kevin and his monsters for their loot. Du Pisani approached Skycastle Studios directors Fabio Salvador and Eugene Vermeulen who imparted their tabletop gaming knowledge and helped to perfect the game. Over a year of playtesting, feedback and improvements followed. With Dungeon Brah now complete, it is set to launch on the 20th of September and will be distributed globally by Skycastle Studios.
SA creative, Louis du Pisani, Partners with Skycastle Studios to Launch the Card Game #DUNGEONBRAH
Skycastle Studios was recently formed by Solarpop. Solarpop will be the South African distributor for Dungeon Brah once the retail edition becomes available.

Fabio Salvador of Skycastle studios says, “We have always believed that South Africa has the talent to create and produce world-class gaming experiences and as such forming Skycastle Studios has been an important goal of ours.”
SA creative, Louis du Pisani, Partners with Skycastle Studios to Launch the Card Game #DUNGEONBRAH
“We look forward to sharing Dungeon Brah with the entire world as from the 20th of September 2022 when the Kickstarter launches. Be prepared for great stretch goals and value-for-money pricing and a game destined to entertain gamers for years to come.”

Salvador sees Dungeon Brah as the lovechild of Dungeons & Dragons and Exploding Kittens and believes it has the mass appeal of both. It's a push-your-luck Dungeon Party game in every sense of the word.

Sign up to be notified of the launch by searching for Dungeon Brah on the Kickstarter page or follow this link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/dungeonbrah/dungeon-brah

The Playing Format
The card game is a universe in which players, their ragtag crew and hired heroes pilfer the catacombs to battle Cat’hulhian beast Kevin and his monsters for their loot. But it’s never that simple, even though players and their pals embark on the adventure together, the fellowship inevitably crumbles as players steal swag, betray buds and misdirect monsters to escape with Kevin’s coveted loot, or simply be the last ‘hero’ standing. Now, who doesn’t enjoy a nice, casual game about greed, backstabbing, and ancient cat beasts?

In simple terms, the players randomly pick their party of two heroes at the start of every game, creating unique playthroughs with varying tactics. Players take turns drawing from the deck to kit out their champions. The card draw speeds up as the game progresses, creating tense scenarios where more loot is up for grabs, but with increased odds of battling dungeon boss Kevin and his monsters. Players, who are technically raiding the dungeon together, must also manage their standing among other players to ensure they are not targeted, whilst also aiming to be the last one standing or to escape with the loot.
SA creative, Louis du Pisani, Partners with Skycastle Studios to Launch the Card Game #DUNGEONBRAH
Creator Louis du Pisani
Professional creative and entrepreneur, Louis du Pisani is also the brains behind the video game title ‘Boet Fighter’. Du Pisani was responsible for creating, co-writing, illustrating, and animating the hit local video game. The video game leaned heavily on making fun of and subverting South African jock culture and, especially, its use of local colloquialisms. He also created an animated South African animated heavy metal TV show, MK Ondergrond. Dungeon Brah is a departure from digital game design, but its subversive tone remains.

Profound 8 Movement Model Developed By Dr Johan Beukes Will Change Your Life!

Hi Friends, 

Many years ago, somewhere in Bultfontein in the Free State, a nine-year-old boy had an epiphany while sitting on his bed. He realized that it was his job to make a difference in the world. With this extraordinary task at heart, he set out on his life’s journey in search of what he could do to achieve this goal.

He searched for meaning in everything he did. On the field as a rugby player, after school as a theology student and as a model on international catwalks.

The search continued as he obtained one academic qualification after another, including a master’s degree in theology, an honours degree in industrial psychology, an MPhil in leadership, a doctorate in educational psychology, a social entrepreneurship program at INSEAD Executive Education, followed by an emerging leaders course at Harvard University and an invitation to attend a Distinctive Leadership Course at the Leadership College London.

Over the years, he held several high-profile positions and worked with organisations like Remgro, Remgro CSI, the Springbok sevens team (Blitzbokke), numerous universities, Mergon, Barclays Absa and T-Systems South Africa, to name but a few.

All of these experiences prepared him for his real purpose in life.
Profound 8 Movement Model Developed By Dr Johan Beukes Will Change Your Life!
This young boy turned out to be the high-performance leadership coach, inspirational speaker, and authentic living advocate – Dr Johan Beukes.

High-performance leadership coach, Beukes is renowned for empowering his clients to make a meaningful impact in the world. Boasting more than 23 years of experience, Johan has partnered with thousands of local and international leaders, teams and organisations – from private sector companies and educational institutions to start-ups, spiritual organisations and NGOs – guiding them towards successfully navigating the leadership adventure. 

The leadership expert’s unquenchable need to help others, the constant need for innovation and years of experience led to the development of his profound 8 movement’s model, designed to empower people to have a meaningful impact on the world. This model provides holistic tools to help people improve their lives on a personal and professional level. With this, he not only helps leaders and their teams to prevent burnout but also to increase positivity in the midst of change and diversity through special legacy initiatives.

This 8 movement’s model is unique and has already had a massive impact on people all over the country.

One of the pillars of this 8 movement’s model is how to identify your GIFT. When Johan engages with you in a conversation about GIFTS, his enthusiasm is contagious. You immediately start asking yourself – “What is my gift? Have I discovered my gift yet? Am I taking care of my gift?” and that is exactly what this pillar focuses on. “There are so many aspects of GIFTS. Apart from your own gift, you must be able to notice and exploit the gifts of your respective team members. When a husband and wife begin to notice each other’s gifts and families begin to notice each other, miracles happen! What is the risk if you do not identify your own gift or notice the gifts of others and neglect them?” says Johan. “It is very important to discover your gift and to implement it in your life in order to reach your ultimate goal,” he continues.

Johan advises leaders to give team members the opportunity to bring their gifts to the table. “You would be surprised at what changes can occur when people start living their gifts,” says Beukes.

As one of South Africa’s foremost leadership and management team coaches, Johan became renowned for his unique approach and methods to improve leaders, teams and organisations. He sees it as his life’s mission to “support successful people, especially leaders, teams and organisations, on their journey towards identifying their mission in life and making a difference.”

It is, therefore, not surprising that his motto is: “You need to open up and show up!”

“To discover and express your gifts will be the best investment you can make in your own life,” he concludes.

Little fans were definitely not left out of all the Comic Con Africa excitement. Kids' cosplay competitions allowed them to explore their creativity freely, they enjoyed an exhilarating appearance by iconic Mario Kart characters Mario and Luigi, and friendly competition led to tons of prizes and smiles. Kids took part in an interactive karaoke session and the Just Dance competition kept little movers and shakers active towards the end of the day.

Back in the Pop-Culture Hall (Hall 6), esteemed US-based illustrators Daniel Govar and Tony Moy attracted comic book lovers to the Main Stage to watch a live comic illustration. Watching in awe of Govar and Tony’s artistry, comic book lovers got to learn the process of what goes into an illustration, from the shading, the colour palette, and even the creative freedom an artist possesses. Bringing the element of mystery to our Main Hall, Crypto Investment Partner Luno, brought fans the Marvel multiverse with a Doctor Strange-inspired mirror dimension with the opportunity to win big. After much exploring and immersing themselves in the culture of Comic Con, festival-goers flocked to the Luno lounge to have a much-needed breather amidst the hustle and bustle of the opening day. “Even if you don’t have knowledge of how to invest with BitCoin, Luno is the investing platform for everyone and we’re beyond excited to have partnered with Comic Con Africa as the festival welcomes everyone to join the Comic-Con community”, says Luno’s Marketing Manager Rameez Dockrat.

Bringing the ambience to the Pop-Culture Hall, DJ Elliott returned to the Main Stage to bring fans the first daily cosplay competition of the four-day Con. Judged by local cosplay enthusiasts Princess Maggie, Eleven Swan, and Just Plain Chris, cosplay lovers walked the stage to showcase their cosplay skills and share their love for the art form.

“It’s great to see the community back together and express themselves in whichever way they want. It might only be day 1 but being able to talk to like-minded people has been so refreshing, especially after COVID kept us in our homes. I think what’s special about the cosplay element is that people get to be whoever they want, and be celebrated for it at Comic Con Africa“, said Ethan Watts in the audience, dressed as a Hufflepuff Wizard from the hit movie franchise Harry Potter.

Cosplayers were amped to be in the presence of Internationally acclaimed cosplayer, Leon Chiro, who joined the Main Stage to engage with his South African supporters and answer their burning questions on how he rose to fame in the cosplay space.

Media partner, Joburg’s premiere radio station 947, hosted an exhilarating activation in the heart of pop culture at the festival where event-goers had the chance to draw the superhero that they believe 947 embodies, offering fans a chance to showcase their artistic skills. Amongst the exciting offerings of the pop culture hall, the newest addition to the festival StreetCon saw immense success on the first day of the Ultimate Pop Culture and Gaming festival. With three live draws at this section of the Hall, fans got to watch first-hand how street art is produced by Mzansi’s best graffiti artists: Bushy Wopp, Damnvandal, and Samurai Farai.

At the Artist Alley Spotlight Stage powered by Cricut, local artists Leigh Le Roux, Ryan Van Eyk, Michael Way, Shaylin Singh, and Naledi Ramphele teamed together to give comic fanatics a powerful panel discussion on the craft of illustration. This discussion explored different types of illustration styles, techniques, their personal experience in the local scene, and how aspiring illustrators can monetize their craft - another way Comic Con Africa is supporting the local animation industry. Without forgetting the engaging element that Comic Con Africa boasts, the audience joined in on the discussion to find out how their favourite local illustrators successfully established themselves in the space, and how they can follow in their footsteps.

At his exhibitor stand, internationally acclaimed Thunderbolts illustrator Sean Izaakse, said the following: “It is so awesome to be back at the Con after a few years! I’ve honestly missed Comic Con Africa so much, and it’s so great to see my peers and fans alike. Comic Con Africa and the fans that I get to interact with at the festival are the injection of inspiration that keeps me going. I think everyone should join us at Artist Alley and see what the comic space is all about”. Izaakse along with this year’s line-up of esteemed illustrators will be exhibiting at the Con this year, giving fans another opportunity to interact one-on-one with their favorite artists as well as purchase their art.

Netflix promised fans an immersive experience into the world of the teen hit-show Stranger Things and the streaming service certainly did not disappoint. Within this Upside Down World that kicked off on an opening day, fans immersed themselves in the show with the activation featuring a progressive showcase of seasons 1 - 4.

Keeping festival-goers fueled throughout the day was official partner KFC with their much-loved Kentucky Town. Boasting a menu that appeals to the geek community, Kentucky Town saw the likes of the ‘Hero Combo’, ‘The Doom Burger’, and ‘May The Sauce Be With You’ amongst other exciting food offerings. “Con fans have not disappointed on day one of the festivals. We’ve seen such incredible excitement for our limited-edition KFC Comic Con menu and Kentucky Town activities,” said KFC’s Marketing Director Grant Macpherson, “At our various KFC zones we’ve been blown away by the wonderful passion, creativity, and energy of fans and cannot wait to enjoy the ‘finger lickin’ good’ fun across the rest of the weekend.”

New Year Resolutions - Week 34 Achievements & Failures #TheLifesWay

Hi Friends,

Week 34 - Sat 20 Aug 2022 - Fri 26 Aug 2022

Week 34 started with a great Canon World Photography Day 2022 event where Canon called us to Krugersdorp and set up a space to take photographs and learn from various industry leaders and influencers. I really enjoyed the programme and also got to meet Roger Machin once again and he offered his advice on various queries I had. It was a great opportunity to meet Senzelwe, Matthew and Khalipha as well. I got really impressed by the work being done by Kierran. I am always grateful to Canon for all the goodies they have given to everyone in their roadshows and various launch events. 

1. Walking - This week I only did 10.5 kilometres and took the thing to around 656 kilometres as compared to the target of 680 kilometres. 

2. Entertainment - I watched the Delhi Crime Season 2 all episodes in a single day with my wife. This was the first time I put effort to watch the series at 1x speed and let it go. I generally watch everything at 1.5x or that kind of speed. Season 2 is nice and with a new intense storyline, you get to learn more insight into the Police Department.

3. Launch Events - Huawei invited me to their Huawei Wearables launch event and I also got my own personal Huawei Watch Fit 2 in blue strap colour. I have to start using the same in the near future as it has a lot of new features including a built-in speaker to attend to calls and listen to music on the go. Right after the same, I got to attend Samsung's Content Creators event in collaboration with several influencers and it was awesome too as it showcased the power of the new foldable launched last month. 
4. Thank You - The counter moved from 42000 onwards to close at 80634 by the end of the week. With the same power of gratitude, this week the maximum I earned was USD 2.79 on 25-Aug. I could not break the last month's highest but that's fine and I am working towards creating more and more videos. 
5. World Photography Day Event - I posted a lot of photos for Canon but didn't win anything but I am okay with the same as I totally enjoyed taking those photos. I know my strengths and I love what I do without post-processing as I always believed in taking the right photos from the camera directly I am still an old-minded film camera lover since 1984 or so when I first picked up the Pentax camera and took the photographs using the same till 2000. You can watch the photos shot on my Instagram handle. 
Sometimes in life, you win and sometimes you lose but carry on participating in all the contests and someday you will win the one you always wanted to win. I have in my life won more contests than the gifts I received from brands. I have won whatever I have desired sooner or later as per the criteria to win set by the contests along with the blessings of the Lord Almighty. It reminds me that I am not doing the daily prayers for many months now. I have to restart the same and set daily targets or weekly targets for the same too.

New Year Resolutions - Week 33 Achievements & Failures #TheLifesWay

Hi Friends,

I think I am telling more about the achievement and less about failures but there is always an internal struggle that keeps happening with something or the other part of your life for which you are not happy. I am never happy about the fact that despite working hard on The Life's Way - this has not gotten the recognition it wanted and still I am struggling to make it all work. Definitely, there is something not done right from my end and I want you guys to tell me what I am not doing correctly? Give me your comments on any platforms you are following me on or else send me an email from the bottom of the page.

Week 33 - Sat 13 Aug 2022 - Fri 19 Aug 2022

1. Thank You - There was a complete halt of this habit in the month of August, especially during the previous week and I could only do 6000 for the whole week. I think I left the counter someplace and couldn't find the same also for many days. Anyways, I am sure I will meet the yearly goal of 1 Million for sure. It's always great to look at the big picture you are working towards and the small problems build your confidence to move forward for sure. This week I completed the 100k from the counter of 74000 and took it to 42000 again at the end of 19-Aug-22.

2. Goodies - YouTube Creator 360 event goodies finally reached my home address and I was extremely happy to receive something with my channel name on the jacket they sent. It's in YouTube colours and you can check out the video here. I also worked on creating YouTube thumbnails for already posted videos and then sharing the tweets. YouTube thumbnail creation is an added task in itself and there should be a dedicated day for the same. I am using the Canva platform to create the same. 
3. Skillshare - I bought an annual subscription to Skillshare for USD 24 based on the notion class of Ali Abdaal and I am now spending a lot of money on books and courses to extend my knowledge further. Since YouTube monetization is enabled I am spending a lot of money on things that I always wanted even without a single cent coming into reality towards me. YouTube I am sure sends money at a certain interval or threshold and I have not reached the same yet and am still pending some address verification from my side as well. 

4. Walking - I am constantly losing out on the weekly targets against the 660 kilometres, I could only reach 645 kilometres. There is a gap of 15 kilometres which I can now take into consideration as 1 week's leave and can reset the same too but let's carry on and see if the gap broadens then we can do the same. This is because I have a target of 1000 kilometres in 52 weeks so we have 2 weeks of furloughs available. I am using the Huawei Watch GT 2e for tracking purposes. 

5. Launch Events - I was invited to the biggest launch in terms of new products at Xperience Huawei 2022 launch event that happened at Sandton Convention Centre and the goodies received were a luxurious backpack which you can watch here. I still have to share the goodies received at the Samsung launch event and I will do so soon in the upcoming videos. I am doing all these videos for you so that you guys what goes into these events and what do you get out of it in case you are interested in becoming a blogger or YouTuber in the future? Your experience might be different in case you are top of the class but general category admissions will be like what I am showcasing to you. 
6. Books and Audiobooks - I completed one book by Sandeep Krishnan called Mind of a Consultant and picked up his other book named Making of a CEO. The mind of a consultant is a definite read for all management graduates and those who are not. This brings back all the knowledge that was acquired during the long hours in the MBA school I attended and that you also wish to attend. You shall definitely listen to the same on Audible or buy a book. 

The struggle is always there but these books and audiobooks help you gain perspective and things your mind has put on hold and your memory is also not serving you. Books are the only way you can gain back your confidence to speak and putting those skills learned from books can help you grow in any area you want. My focus is on the Growth Mindset and Execution for the rest of the year.
