"This right here is what most South Africans fail to grasp. Very few are born into money or inheritance but that should not be an impediment. With hard work, dedication and a purpose, you can make a success of yourself. NO ONE can give you legitimate success or wealth."

@zimu_sthembiso added:

"I guess the words that say it's not about how you start but about how you finish... Inspired dawg, I'm definitely using you as an inspiration."
