Gaynor's Road To Success:
Name: Gaynor van Rooyen
Occupation: Senior Clerk
Goals: "My ultimate goal in life is to be content. All the money and fame in the world pales in comparison to a happy, healthy life."
What is success? "Being satisfied with the decisions you've made and living life with no regrets. It might be easier said than done but it can be done."
What success have you achieved? "I consider taking the leap of faith to start my blog as a success. I'm a very private person and somewhat of an introvert so it took a lot of guts to put myself out there. The feedback so far has been very positive and has brought me out of my shell so to speak, which motivates me to continue with my blogging journey. I've also completed two university qualifications and am considering going for my third one!"
What success do you want to achieve? "Success is very much linked to happiness for me. I want to try my hand at everything that interests me so that in the end I can truly say I've used my God given talents to the full. I want to continue building my brand, educating myself even more and travel the world while doing it. I'm very lucky to have a like-minded, loving, supportive husband who is my biggest motivator so the sky is the limit. The following Steve Jobs quote is my inspiration for achieving my life goals:
"Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Almost everything - all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.""
All the best on your road to success Gaynor...
