Don’t let your job define you
SECURITY guards work long hours but are paid peanuts. As if that is not enough, they are also exploited and have no benefits such as medical aid or a housing allowance. Also, they are either not unionised or not allowed to belong to a union. But I digress.
Onkarabile Wisdom Mokoto is a security guard. However, Mokoto does not allow his job to define him. Instead, he regards it as a means to an end, not the other way round. He is proof that security guards have brains, too.
Mokoto is an author of two books, The Power of Planning and How To Hear God When He Speaks. He is also the director and founder of Life Shaping Services, his motivational company.
The inspiring story of Mokoto has caught media attention. Not long ago, he appeared on SABC2’s Morning Live show talking about his book, The Power of Planning. His story was also published in the Krugersdorp News. Soon he will be on Motsweding FM.
He is planning to write more books and continue using his story to motivate others.
He says his books have touched and changed many lives in a positive manner. And he intends reaching many more people to change more lives. He is a good man.
Many people look down on security guards. However, I’m sure Mokoto’s story will change the perception people have about them.
His achievements show that you can be what you want to in life, regardless of the job you’re doing.
