The BS Story You Keep Telling Yourself…

I just realized something, I’m 35 and I don’t have a pension fund.

This was a result of me jumping from one company to another.

Yes, it’s my fault.

Leaving permanent, 4 year government job I had in favor of fulltime stock trading, was a very risky move.

That stunt came back to bite me in the ass, when that venture failed.

Mainly because I did not initially find someone who was already succeeding in what I wanted to do.

And modelling their success habits that will allow me to be as successful.

Mentorship, would have this most very lucrative for me.

I had to go to corporate world with zero pension fund, bouncing from one pension fund-less job to another.

This was due to the kind of temporary jobs I’ve been getting.

Temps jobs don’t come pension benefits.

Now because I’ve been relying on a company to determine my future financial security, I’m left caught with my dick in my hand.

I’ve been relying on other people to provide a level of security that they themselves aren’t aware of.

There’s no power there.

That part of my life has been titled as one of my greatest failure.

But I’ve now found that it’s one of my greatest successes.

Because of the lessons it has taught me.

More of a warning.

That you are leaving yourself too exposed if you success depends on someone else’s decision.

Your chances of success will tilt in your favour when you take 100% ownership of your level of success in your life.81x2aSRQqGL

Saying that anyone or any institution is the reason behind why you’re not getting ahead in life, is a bullshit story you keep telling yourself.

So much so that you believe it.

And because of your belief, this has become your reality.

Just because things are dire for now, does not mean I’m f***ed for life.

Especially when books by Anthony Robbins paint a different picture of my possible future.

Replace Your S** t Habits With Good Ones

I kept on seeing and hearing the name Simon Sinek being projected in my head.

Simon Sinek.

As if stuck in the frontal lobe of my brain.

Simon Sinek.

All this, haunting, while trying to sleep.

So here I am, writing about him.

I don’t know much about him.

He was first brought to my attention by a business partner who has a background in medicine.

Google Sinek.

From the little I know of him is that he’s a speaker.

He speaks about most about leadership. On what defines a leader and what drives her. Reasons why they are true leaders. Amongst other things.

He’s available on different social media sites, I also follow him on Twitter and IG.

He’s an author as well, he wrote Start With Why.

And there are lots of videos on the ‘Tube that have he’s talks.

I think there’s a vid of one of his talks I posted in one of my blogs that I thought was awesome.

There’s a bias that comes with being a leader that I want to take advantage of.

The monetary benefits of being paid to solve problems being one of them.

It’s as if followers create problems while leaders get paid to solve them.

So I’ve been listening to some of his audios as well. Him, John Maxwell and Gary Vaynerchuk are the 3 guys I’ve been filling my head with of late.

And Eric Thomas. #TGIM

I guess I can be obsessed with certain things in my life, such as my personal development.

If I don’t invest the time for it, noone else will.

Then I will just be like the rest of them, blaming my job or spouse or community or the government or the gods for my current, undesirable situations.

Not realising that the true problem here is me.

I fix me, all else gets fixed.

It’s an inside job.

Take Care of The Garden of Your Thoughts


Trying to get this blog thing going. but I’m coming from a dark place.

Think when you allow yourself to be ruled by your emotions then you will be at their mercy.

It’s a special kind of laziness when you don’t take control of your thoughts.

And you go through the emotions.

We sometimes forget that how what we think, creates our lives.

Yup, that’s what As A Man Thinketh says.

Free download on Play Store or iStore.

It’s like reverse engineering.

Believing before you see it.

Reminds of a Dr. Dyer book title.

If you are looking for a certain outcome then you need to see it before you can have it.

By exposing yourself to things that are in alignment with what you seek.

Before you can have it in your hand, you need to see it in your mind. ~ Bob Proctor

Change your environment.

Hang around those people you want to see yourself becoming.

Read about the things you want for yourself often.

Add pictures around you that correspond with the things you want to attract.

Sometimes the things we take for granted are the things that are of most value.

They don’t cost much, but they are priceless.

Like your thoughts.

Every now and again we need to remove the weeds that grow in the garden of our thoughts.

So they don’t cross pollinate with the other wonderful thoughts that grow in your garden.

~ Musa

The Key To Unlimited Freedom

I get this voice, it sounds like mine but I’m not so sure, nagging me, willing me to write.

Saying, “tell them, tell them, tell them,” after I told “myself” a sentence that moved me.

Usually something I have heard before but was not enlightened enough to really listen.

“You not listening,” I heard “myself” saying.

Which is truthful.

All of my hunches, intuition, sixth sense, gut feeling I only listen to and do what they suggest only 15% of the time.

On one hand I ask God for guidance, then on the other I don’t take heed to Her words.

And now after starting to meditate for this past week, these “words” of guidance are becoming louder…or can I say I am now more inclined to do as the say than I was before.

“The kingdom of God is within you.”

As corny as it is, it feels so real…surreal.

“Feelings are the language of the soul.” – Neale Donald Walsch

And it scares me.

The idea and possibility of going to a place where I can get the answers to any question or challenge I am facing…it’s liberating.

And this level of liberation is so out of this dimension that, I guess, it’s exciting…and scary.

Me thinks I must rather say it feels so good it’s exciting :).

Ja and that’s were it is, right there. Exciting, and emotion I should rather hold on to and focus on.

In any case, what I was suppose to have brought to attention was that:

true success comes to those who give for the primary purpose of helping another to grow.

Which in turn is going to make you successful in various ways, including financial, since we are all connected.

There is no greater teacher than experience, so try it, it’s unbreakable.

Dedicate the next hour in giving love and gratitude to all things, people and circumstance.

All you will experience from then onwards is love and gratitude cloaked in physical form(s)… well until you start thinking thoughts that are not loving and grateful.”

Ma Asked Me To Tell Her About The Secret

I wanted to laugh in her face but stopped myself short when I realised she wasn’t being sarcastic or ridiculing me.

She followed up that first request by asking how she can change her mind set.

Then I realised that this came from her hearing to an audio I was playing in my car about the secrets to success and abundance in one’s life.

I didn’t think it was hitting home for her. But it appears I was wrong.

You should have heard how unconvincing I was in echoing what I have learned about the secret to success, principles I have been studying for about over two years now.

And honestly speaking, that is what I have been doing with this blog of mines that I continue to update regularly…echoing.

Do I BELIEVE the things that I echo?

Because if I did my enthusiasm in informing others of SUCCESS and ABUNDANCE laws that EVERYONE should know in order to live a life full of PROSPERITY and RICHES, would be at an all time high, at all times, infecting everyone within an ear’s reach!

That would be mostly due to having allowed these scientifically proven wealth & success principles to energize and renew me from the inside out, making me shine with my own Light and bring hope into people lives with a message that seems to say “all it not lost.”

“We all walk in the dark and each of us must learn to turn on his or her own light.” – Earl Nightingale

Do I BELIEVE the things that I echo?

I do.

I have to because the alternative of not heeding to the maxim “We Become What We Think About” is like letting an enormously powerful earth-moving truck, slang for “ama-caterpillar” in my part of the world, run randomly and wildly over each moment of my life.

It would be like saying I am letting someone else control how my mind functions, as long as every fort night or thirty day period I get the payslip that pays the bills, I am happy.

Limiting my powerful creation machine, that in my mind, to the 1st gear then back to neutral. Even though my “gears” are unlimited.

At times, being caught at the centre of my two fears:

  1. A fear of failure and,
  2. A fear of success.

Afraid to move forward because I have created in my mind a movie of what will happen in the future, how arrogant of me, and it wasn’t a movie that I liked or had a good ending for me.

Self sabotage.

I am not in charge, I used to say to myself unconsciously, so I am going to let the community of “they” control my life.

Removing me, disempowering myself from the responsibility of changing the things that I do not like, the things I do not want in my life, because it is “their” fault that a, b, c happened/did not happen.

“Because I am not capable of creating such unworthy circumstances in my life. I mean why would I?” I used to think.

Not realising that I was doing exactly that, and continuing to do so from every moment, from the now onwards.

And the cycle continued due to my ignorance.

“We Become What We Think About” – Earl Nightingale

And when I fall off my wagon of thinking in the positive, I get conscious of that, then get back on. Because God rewards those who are happy or feel good most of the time.

As addictive as thinking in the negative might be.

Now to the question of how ma can change her mind set to one that will attract wealth, abundance and feel good vibes.

To that I would say: Start “echoing”:).

One of the ways that I can change my mind set is through continuous, persistent repetition of a new idea and/or worthy ideal.

This is something that I first heard of from the free downloadable audios I got upon registering with The Succeed Magazine.

By saying “continuous, persistent repetition” I mean to say it is a lifetime commitment.

That is why not a lot of us are “rolling in money” as the saying goes. This is because of the words “persistence,” which is another word for faith if you think about it, and “lifetime commitment.”

The lot of us would rather keep going at the rate that we are going because it’s less strenuous and easier than this “mind thing that does not work.” Even though your entire life is based on the existence and usage of this “mind thing that does not work.”

Because it’s easier for us humans – most of us – to think in negative than it is to think in positive, that’s why, in Bob Proctor’s words in the Secret DvD that can also be found at, “10% of the people in the world hold 90% of all the money that is been made.”

This is the reluctance that kills – mentally, spiritually, and physically – a lot of the people out there.

When that I mean when a new idea comes into our mind, depending on whether it is harmonious or not with our current programming, we either accept it or reject it.

This happens almost immediately, so here comes Musa who tells you that not only can you be a Multi Billionaire but all the bad things that you are currently experiencing in your life, you have attracted.

If you don’t start rolling on the floor, with tears in your eyes, laughing, then you would start spitting on me, cursing me, throwing stones at me and drive nails through my wrists and ankles and crucify me. Or anything in between.

Maybe people ask themselves what their family and friends would say once they find out that they are in to this mind thing.

Just imagine???

So they would rather stay poor, in the broadest sense of the word, than accept in their lives the abundance that is in the Universe/ Life/ God.

Like ask yourself how much time do you put in a day into doing the things that you would need to do, that will one day improve your life from what you are currently experiencing to want you would have be living?

Because you sleep, you travel, you might even work or do school, then you buy groceries or hang out with friends, cook, clean, fetch the kids or siblings, come back home, watch tv, play video/computer games, go out, do overtime at work, do the laundry, read a novel, go to gym…sleep?

How many hours did you say again?

…it’s shocking ne?

Nothing Changes If Nothing Changes.

And then you go to church with the impression that not only does it please God that you are (going to church, that is), but that he will answer you every time you ask for something. [Musa laughs to himself]

Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing I love and believe in more than the being that is known as God/the Universe/Life.

It is because of this Source that I am now blessed with this abundance of wealth I am experiencing and that I am deeply and whole-heartedly grateful for.

You know what…on second thoughts let me leave this for another blog post.

Now where was I?

Oh yes, one can change their mind set from lack to abundance through continual repetition of the images she prefers, since the mind thinks in pictures, that are backed by purpose and a burning desire.

And if this change of mind set is something you really what above all else, then this is the change you will truly experience.

Because if nothing else exist apart from you and your goal, keeping in mind it is this kind of thinking that will give you the things you desire all the time, guaranteed, then it is yours.

“Seek and it shall be given onto you.”

Hence the books, audios, websites, blogs I continue to update and recommend for you.

“It is through enriching others, that you become rich.”

Because I am God’s message.

So I give because God/The Universe/Life is Giving.

And Giving is Love.

Earl Nightingale said

Earl Nightingale said “You Become What You Think About,” like you become what you think about.

So you think, and then you become.

Let me say that again:

“You become what you think about”.

So what are thinking about?

“You become what you think about.” – Earl Nightingale.

So take that one idea and, like Swami Vivekananda said

“Take up one idea.

Make that one idea your life –

think of it, dream of it, live in that idea.

Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body be full of that idea & just

leave every other idea alone.

That is the way to success.”

About Musawenkosi Tshoaele


Who Is Musawenkosi Tshoaele?

Hi, my name is Musa (Musawenkosi) Tshoaele, and I dedicate a large part of my 24 hours in a day (minus the sleep and work) towards the study of the accumulation of wealth.

A large part of my findings are recorded within this blog, with recommendations that point you, the reader, in the direction of success – if taken of course, it’s always a choice.

I’ve been doing this ever since I got my hands on The Secret DvD – two years now, hence the 23 in Musa23 – and I love how this study comes together with my love of writing.

It was then on that I attracted The Science Of Getting Rich then went on to receiving so much inspirational and motivational Good, in the form of Bob Proctor…need I say more, which I take for granted at times.

All I am doing to pointing you – and myself so not to forget – in the an abundant and prosperous life in financially, mentally, physically, relationally and spiritually, you decide whether you would follow me in this journey for a better life or not.

“A journey of a thousand steps begins with the first step.”

Because change can happen in everyone’s life, by first changing your perception of life.

And that is what this blog is helping me do.
