Can the love of cars propel one’s life to Greatness?

In beginning of 2003 when I first arrived in Johannesburg I had a different view of what success meant and I had the sort of ambition that would have made a few people around me uncomfortable.

It was the sort of ambition that was not tested by life. Failure and disappointments had not been a part of my life. Truth is I have always been a dreamer. Even when I was sitting in my little hut with cow dung covering the floor and the grass being covered by grass.

I have always had a dream that I would do great things with my life and I still hold that belief to this day. Due to the fact that I enjoyed Accounting I assumed that naturally I should become a Chartered Accountant so a BCom Accounting seemed like a natural choice.

One of the Commercial Law lecturers drove a Silver BMW M3. Little was known of him but we all admired him, we had heard that he was a big shot lawyer working for one of the big law firms in Sandton. The thing that made us admire him more was the talk that he had a humble beginning and that he made a success of his life despite his background and today he’s now a founding director of his own successful law firm.

My love for cars and combined with my love for Accounting made me very aware that if I’m gonna have that car I had to be the best at what I do because of the price tag on such a car.

Amazingly enough life has taken me to a career I had never heard about while in the village. Its hard to believe that overtime I have had the privilege of working for almost last 10 years for three of the biggest banks in South Africa with presence overseas as a Compliance Professional and to think that now I’m  studying towards becoming a lawyer my life is in the process of going full circle.

To this day the 2001 BMW M3 holds a special place in my heart. Even though BMW has released two models after that one my love remains unshaken.

Fast forward many years latter I am on the other side of the German fence. Having had the blessing of having owned two Mercedes Benz I have a devotion to the brand that cannot even be explained in words. My Social pages are constantly flooded with the slogan from Mercedes Benz…#TheBestOrNothing.

The Mercedes C63AMG has defined my ambition for the last three years. The dream to own one has now become a goal that I’m looking forward to achieving. With the price tag being over R 1 million rand I’m very much aware of what it will take for me to have one.

I’ll need to be at the top of my game…The best at everything that I do and that is a challenge I have accepted and It will one day become a reality…
