Reimagining Myself by Ntsikelelo Mzibomvu

(1 customer review)


Imagine if the key to changing the country lied in empowering and transforming the individuals that make up the citizens of the country? Imagine what that would do for our progress individually and as a collective? Imagine if we could reimagine ourselves into the best versions of who we are? With a foreword by Dr Mamphela Ramphele


Reimagining Myself – A journey of Personal Transformation and Entrepreneurial Thinking” by Ntsikelelo Mzibomvu, with a foreword by Dr Mamphela Ramphele.

In a country where democracy is suffering from extended teething challenges and the powers that be struggle to adequately meet societal demands, it becomes crucial to engage a bottom-up solution that starts with empowering the individual with the capacity to self-transform and actualise.

Take a second and imagine what South Africa (and the rest of the continent) would be like if each citizen were aware of their capacity to change their reality by learning how to be the best version of themselves. What would the country be like if we could live our lives in alignment with the universal principles that govern human progress and harmonious relations – such as Ubuntu?

Ntsikelelo Mzibomvu has been involved in the youth development, personal transformation, and entrepreneurial thinking space for the past 10 years offering talks, workshops and seminars at schools, social organisations and companies. In his journey he has written and published four titles – “Beyond Democracy Igniting the South African Renaissance”; “Thinking Ghetto Genius”; “Thinking Ghetto Entrepreneur – A personal guide to entrepreneurial development”; and the art book “The Path to Greatjoy – A collaborative Journey through the art and life of visual artists Greatjoy Ndlovu”. Reimagining Myself is the fifth offering which essentially is a combination of the first three books, and it provides a holistic approach to self-transformation and developing the necessary mindset for developing entrepreneurial thinking.

The book is an essential tool as an easy to read guide into the world of personal development and self-actualisation within the South African context. It takes into consideration the historical background and the psychological effects of the shift from apartheid into democracy and provides guidance that helps us adapt and thrive in the new ever-changing environment. In the book, you will find various practical tools and thinking that helps the reader reimagine how they relate to and create reality. The book also offers a personal development plan and a personal success contract.

    In a country like ours marred by colonization and apartheid, it was refreshing to pick up a personal transformation book that considered that.

    In Reimaging Myself, Ntsikelelo Mzibomvu does a stunning job taking the larger environmental influences and context of South Africa into account. He walks us through how to overcome the mental and emotional limiting beliefs that are born, not only from our original families but shaped by the country we live in.

    Reimagining Myself is a book I think every household should have as an introductory or training ground for personal transformation. It is a great book to gift young people who are about to start their lives, an awesome book for anyone feeling stuck and needs a refresher on the principles of making life your own and for parents who would like to start their kids young because it is written in a way that doesn’t alienate the reader.

    Reimagining Myself is a book that reminds us how important your mind is and that training it to get what you want out of life is paramount. My favourite line on this, and possibly my new favourite reminder going forward is, “Practice makes permanent, not perfect.” This also makes me think of Marisa Peers (World-renowned Rapid Transformational Therapist ) she says, “First you make your habits then your habits make you.”

    The crux of where most of us fall short when it comes to transforming our lives, we try for a while and then fall back into old habits and deem the whole personal development industry a ruse. When truthfully, as Mzibomvu points out in his book, repetitive exposure is the key to living the life we want.

    Mzibomvu does a great job of walking us through these concepts that can sometimes feel out there in space, he has made them accessible and, if I can boldly say, the one he harps on about is the principle that brings it all together. I loved that the book didn’t sound like a preachy session or a pompous author who makes you feel worse than you did before picking up the book.

    (And just for a quick real-life turnaround, reading this book helped me remember things and helped me move on my goals, the constant reminder “practice makes permanent, not perfect.”
    I am kinder to myself and aware that the brain will fight me until it gets tired or understands that I now seek new things and the old (that it is resisting to let go of) no longer serves me.)

    I did, however, find that there were chapters I wish were longer, especially the Entrepreneurial Thinking section, which is part two of the book. And maybe Mzibomvu makes up for that by providing a full template on how to start a business. And in the first part of the book, the limited write up on some concepts, I guess are to give the reader an opportunity to self-study, seek out more information and absorb it at their own pace.

    I did enjoy the reflections at the end of each chapter and highly recommend readers work through those exercises. I suggest you work through the first part of the book until you master the principles it offers or until you have a good grasp of them before moving on to the second part of the book. So, immerse yourself in the exercises at the end of each chapter. It is not a one-sitting read it is a coach in your pocket, book. And it will work better if you take your time, especially for those starting in this personal transformation journey.

    All in all, Reimaging Myself is a good book to help South Africans understand why a personal transformation journey for every individual is important and how as a collective we can change the trajectory of our country.

    And though I have spoken about my experience with the book, I do believe my views still fall short when put up against the foreword by Dr Mamphela Ramphele. Her foreword in this book is a real treasure, and adequately sums up the importance of this book and the man who wrote it.
