GRAVITATE FROM BEING A VICTIM TO A VICTOR, SAYS MIND POWER MASTER

GRAVITATE FROM BEING A VICTIM TO A VICTOR, SAYS MIND POWER MASTER

One of the world’s leading authorities on the subject of mind power and personal mastery, Mr Robin Banks, entertained and motivated the audience during a presentation at the School of Laboratory Medicine and Medicinal Sciences (LMMS).

An international speaker and a comedian of note, Banks united staff under the theme: “Success is a choice”, which is in line with UKZN’s recently launched Transformation Charter.

The presentation encouraged participants to embrace change and gravitate from being a “victim to victor” in all of life’s situations by transforming how they thought, felt and behaved.

Banks said people spent too much time worrying and complaining about things they often had no control over, and the negative energy they carried was a direct contributor to stress, baggage and ill-health.

‘The person you affect the most by carrying negative energy is yourself! Let go of the need to blame someone else because of how you are feeling.’

Banks coined accusation, blame and complaining as the “ABC” of being a victim. He said he was concerned that most people in South Africa did not have a future, but a past.

‘Most people’s lives are controlled by what happens to them. People are going to do what people are going to do… recognise that whatever you are constantly thinking about, you will bring about.’

During his presentation, Banks demonstrated the impact of various concepts on people’s lives, including: the power of mindsets, dealing and coping with change, internal versus external control, maintaining a positive attitude, creating empowering beliefs and generating a vibrant energy field.

Banks has dedicated his life to the transformation of global consciousness and his ultimate desire is to empower people to take charge of their lives and create a brighter future for themselves, their community, their country and the planet. Educational, informative and captivating the audience from beginning to end during the presentation, Banks had participants on their feet and dancing to fun-filled activities which promoted respect, excellence and collegiality among all.

Professor William Daniels, Dean and Head of the School of LMMS, said there were some serious messages in the presentation and he was confident that colleagues would adopt improved ways of professionalism and performance in their various roles.
