Mthokozisi Nkosi was born in Mpumalanga Province and grew up between two small townships, Volksrust and Perdekop. In the year 2000, he moved to Gauteng Province to live with his late father, and that`s where he completed his matric at Boitumelong Senior Secondary School. He is passionate about online marketing and studied for a qualification on this field at the University of South Africa. He loves writing, blogging, reading, music production and public speaking. He is an active member of Toastmasters International. He describes himself as being young, energetic and always full of life. He finds fulfillment in educating, motivating, inspiring, mentoring, coaching and helping others to realise their full potential. His priority lies in providing selfless service to all in need of help and advice.
After working as a claims administrator in a freight forwarding and supply chain company for eight years, he began to realise that he had not grown and had been doing the same thing all those years. There were no growth opportunities and besides that, he had no passion for the work he was engaged in. One day, while he was reading a book by Jim Rohn, he came across a quote which read, “We must all suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret”. Right there and then, Mthokozisi’s life changed. It all began with making one important decision. He decided that “enough is enough” so he took charge of his life and regained control. On April 2017, Mthokozisi self-published his first book titled, Step Out of Your Comfort Zone and Start Living Your Dream. This book is also available in audio narrated and produced by himself.
Mthokozisi`s philosophy in life is that, you have the power to change from what you are –to what you have the potential of becoming –Believe you CAN and you WILL. As a Public Speaker he covers a selection of topics on personal development. “My book is about how I stepped out of my comfort zone. The opposite of courage is not fear – it is being comfortable. To be courageous you need to be uncomfortable. It’s about conquering your fears. People stay stuck in one place and complain about their situations but the problem is their own fears,” says Mthokizisi. He motivates abd inspires others through speaking engagements at schools and universities as well as seminars.
