7 Years in a coma. Dr Kobus Du Toit’s story of waking up and uncovering the significance of his story. ‘
Have you ever booked yourself into a hospital to undergo a life quality improvement procedure with the expectation of a good outcome, only to recover from your ordeal 7 years later?
At the age of 45, I was married for 23 years, the father of 4 children of respectively 9, 11, 12 and 14 and the sole breadwinner of my family of 6. I’d reached the top of the ladder in my career as CEO within a corporate banking group when I entered the hospital on 16 October 2000 with exactly the same expectation of a good outcome, just as you would do.
However, for me things took a turn for the worst and what was supposed to be a life quality improvement procedure turned into a complete disaster which resulted in a dramatic drop in life quality and an intense combat for recovery while I was left without bladder and colon control, a non-functioning prostrate as well as a partly paralyzed right leg and foot.
During the 7 years, I was literally stripped from everything I previously had and nurtured – health, career, income, reserves, assets, marriage, family as well as my human dignity (the aspect that got damaged most), only to learn six valuable lessons.
Equally so, does all of us have a story to tell, although a story only reveals an objective experience – the WHAT (contents) of an experience. Unfortunately, most people are stuck in their objective experience and sadly fail to see the significance of their trauma or discomfort – the WHY behind the what. And this is exactly what my talk is about – to share my experience with audiences to help people to uncover and to understand the significance of their story.

Pele said: “Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.”
On 14 June Marthie Hauptfleisch is going to present a workshop called “Pilot Your Success”.
The workshop will include an easy-to-use business plan and brainstorming about what YOU want to do, and what talents and blessings you want to share with your friends, family and the world.
The business plan will focus on aspects such as leadership styles, friends and family, personal growth, career, health and money, etc.
Start in 2017 with the right focus – become part of the circle of motivated people who want to make the world a better place. Become inspired and empowered to passionately pursue your purpose! Like Zig Ziglar had said: “Success means doing the best we can with what we have. Success is the doing, not the getting; in the trying, not the triumph. Success is a personal standard, reaching for the highest that is in us, becoming all that we can be.”
You can contact Marthie at 083 767 2701 or firstname.lastname@example.org

From the time we are born, we are being put into boxes of expected behaviour. The boxes encompass our whole being and almost everything we do, from the way we dress to the way we wear our hair. It is cultural, based on our sex, based on our age, based on our religion, based on who knows what else. Boxes inside boxes upon boxes, all filled with ways in which we should think and be and act.
