Tranquility Bay

Good Morning (afternoon) Durban!

“Likeable leaders inspire trust and admiration through their actions, not just their words. Many leaders say integrity is important to them, but likeable leaders walk their talk by demonstrating integrity every day. Even a leader who oozes charm won’t be likeable if that charm isn’t backed by a solid foundation of integrity” ~ Gary Pike via Jim Rohn with permission

I went down to the Durban Yacht Mole before sunrise to get some Head of the Bay photos at Durban Rowing Club. Nola and Sean didn’t seem to be there so I missed out on a bacon / egg roll.

The Canon G3X camera with a 1″ sensor and 25X zoom snapped off over 150 photos, mostly of the sunrise which was OK but much better after sunrise for nearly an hour (a lesson in patience and assumptions: do not judge shooting conditions until it’s time to shoot). There were also no clouds before sunrise but the clouds moved in very quickly with the rising sun.

Goodnight Durban

“Fortune doesn’t necessarily bring you freedom. And jets and power are not guarantees of joy, purpose and peace. Yet, having SELF-respect, being connected with your TRUE power and being incredibly comfortable in your OWN skin is worth all the treasures of this world, where too many among us are living their lives like sheep – unconsciously following a trail that others have set for them. Leading them to a place that isn’t best for them. I viscerally believe the most natural birthright of every human life is to enjoy the shiny pleasures of the world and well-deserved proportions of ongoing prosperity while, at the same time, experiencing the wisdom, fearlessness, love and instinct to serve that rests at our very core” ~ Robin Sharma
