EXCLUSIVE l The Author of “The Untold Truth About Pain” Mogale Molala, who is an outspoken, friendly and, accommodating young man, took us through his journey of life from the day his parents separated to be speaker today.
Mogale is reserved, private, shy and always working, if not talking to clients, he is one person who is always thinking about his next move, and always reflecting on both his life and goals.
“If there is one thing, I am always good at is planning. Many things that you see happening now, I have planned them a long time ago, it is just the universe responding to what I have been planning and working towards,” he said.
Molala said the greatest lesson for him, was being independent, hard-worker and perseverance.
“So I am a lover of nice things or let’s just say. I love things, so my mom couldn’t really give me everything I desired. For example, instead of buying me a phone, she will give me her old phones.
“So I brought my first phone while I was still in primary.
“Because I used to save for the things I want, and my mother preferred that I always contribute even if it is R5 and that taught me to be responsible.
“Seeing her working tirelessly towards her dreams of being a principal inspired me to work hard and develop the possible mindset, for about 18 years she was working towards being a principal. She never gave up, so I drew my spirit of perseverance and hard work from there,” he told Pursuit Media SA.
However, he said it wasn’t easy, and he will never lie, at some point he wished they shouldn’t have give birth to him. But, what kept him going was a pen and paper, he will write his feelings down because he felt it to be futile to tell people since many will judge or even laugh at him for sharing his feelings.
“I made a pen and paper, my friend. I used to write as a means of expression,” he told.
“After my book was out, I laid low and only wanted local interviews so that I prepare myself for the big ones, hence when I went to SABC I nailed the interview because I have been putting in the work. But beside that, one thing that I can tell you, is that I will become one of the best speakers in SA and the Pain Guru, it’s just a matter of time.
“Everything that I am doing prepares and lays a foundation for a great future, even the relationships that I am making, damn!!! The best is yet to come.”
“I endured too much pain to an extent that I attempted suicide, so I know how it feels like to be in a position where you don’t feel like you worthy, loved, or you feel like life is unfair. But, what I can tell you, is to keep your head high, focus on the main thing (yourself).
“My life started changing the moment I realized that I am the opportunity, the world wouldn’t be a better place without me because if we are 1000 in the world. If i die the numbers in my community, district, province, country, continent and the world changes, just look at how many things are changing just because of your existence.
“Pain is not an enemy here, but a true friend because pain teaches us more about ourselves and surrounding. Now I know am strong, handsome, patient because of pain. God wants you to lean on the pain so that you learn and see his greatness,” he concluded.
