Feeling Suck? 3LEVEN11 Personal Coaching Insists that You Achieve Your Greatest Potential Regrettably, many accept their lives that are unfulfilled and unsatisfying. Why not, its easier, after-all procrastination keeps them stalling and dreaming. Anxiety about failure is their greatest threat. Personal Branding & Life Coaching helps you reach your best potential and helps you act now. Cape Town, Western Cape — January 11, 2015 - 3LEVEN11 | Personal Branding, Life & Career Coaching, helps you reinvent yourself by staying true to yourself. If you are feeling stuck and pessimistic about life, you should honestly ask yourself if this is truly how you saw yourself at this point in your life. Moreover, you should re-evaluate what you have been doing wrong and seriously consider re-positioning yourself. This is where Personal Branding & Life Coaching can assist you become more. However, the first step is for you to take accountability and responsibility of your present day reality. By not acknowledging your current situation, you are denying your true authentic self and therefore creating boundaries and limitations for yourself. The art of personal coaching is to bring-out the best of you and help you realise that you too can reach your goals, regardless of your debilitating fear and feelings of unworthiness. You may be reading this and thinking, ‘this is true, I am a little like that’. The question is…are you going to put-off this new awareness as well? Granted, telling a person suffering from chronic procrastination to just get-on with it, is like telling an extremely depressed individual to snap-out of it. Procrastination and depression do hand in hand. You procrastinate because you are not motivated or inspired to move forward and this instigate depression. But why, why do we put things off, particularly those aspects that greatly impact our lives? Is it, perhaps because we do not know who we are, what our talents are or our purpose in life? . . .

Opening the season on Saturday 20 December is the enormously popular Delft Big Band. In five short years this band has proved that when given a chance young people from disadvantaged communities can reach great heights. From never handling an instrument or reading music the achievements are nothing short of phenomenal. In 2013 the band toured France at the invitation of the French Government, and performed to standing ovations wherever they appeared. Since then two tours of Sweden, performances at the Liverpool Brouhaha Festival, Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival and for Prince Charles and Camilla, to whom they were personally introduced, has seen them embraced the world over. Under the dedicated tutelage of much loved professional musician and trumpeter, Ian Smith, this musical miracle has been achieved. In terms of musical excellence, the band is truly astounding. It is not just an enthusiastic bunch of youngsters playing well-known charts. It is a driving, pitch perfect big band, that can hold its own on any platform. This is proof positive of the enthusiasm and dedication of the band members. It is a story of success with several of the musicians taking up the profession as performers and teachers, scholarships to overseas institutions have been awarded and some have enrolled at the UCT College of Music to further their musical studies.

Area history Located to the east of the Cape Town CBD on the lower slopes of Devil’s Peak, the suburb of Woodstock boasts panoramic views of the harbour.

This changed the nature of the suburb as more and more industrial activity ensued. In 1879, the Woodstock Glass Factory was opened, manufacturing the first glass made on South African soil.

In the second half of the twentieth century the lower parts of Woodstock became dilapidated however, following a program to rejuvenate parts of the area, Woodstock has once again become a popular area in which live and work. Woodstock has transformed into a vibrant urban environment with many trendy spots frequented by the locals. The area successfully blends . . .
