Meet CreatePreneurAfrica Uganda's Spiritual journey on the pathway of YOGA
Tell us what drives you? What is your true passion in life?
What inspired me in my journey of life......... I suffered from cardiovascular complications that gave up to 4 heart attacks. The strongest one lasted for up to 50minutes and I got admitted
With the expensive medication and ignorance about nutrition, the medication seemed less effective. It's only loyalty to my yoga practice and nutrition that gave me a new healthy Life .
I noticed how many of us suffer because lack of the right, accessible, and reliable awareness tools. The 3P’s of Purpose had me find a purpose in life which is important because it gives meaning and contributes to my, and other people's happiness , having explored the 3P’s of purpose and their respective aspects as per yoga philosophy.
Although it is not as simple as an equation, it looks something like this:- Purpose = Passion + Practice + Perseverance I learned, I couldn't stop sharing my wellness tools in a way of giving back to humanity.
“The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires........Kudaggala Yoga
The great teacher inspires True! All of us seek inspiration as is our nature to strive for growth in all aspects of life.
How did you find your passion and how old were you?
I was 21 years of age when I first experienced yoga in my country. In my first Yoga classes, I was luckily facilitated with transportation to and from the venue of the Yoga class in 2015.
That's one year before the heart problems I experienced. The practice was new it was like a workshop for artists and I was among those who were invited to try the experience.
What drove you to make money from your passions?
So… how should i do it? How do I find money from my passion? These are the questions I asked myself towards the end of the years 2018.
For a long time, I have always felt that Yoga teaching and Dance for me were just hobbies and in my wildest dreams, I had not imagined that I would actually be able to turn my hobbies into a career.
Until some of my friends started recommending me for private classes that I tried and turned out to be awesome despite the more involved challenges. A year down the road I built confidence to earn money from my Yoga students as a token of gratitude for the time and class shared.
And here I am now with packages for people who wish to take private classes and it's what pays my bills and facilitates my community class outreaches in the Slums and unprivileged communities.
When was the first time you were paid for your passion?
I was first paid to teach a Yoga class in 2019 .
What kept you going when you thought about giving up?
Every time I felt like giving up I remembered my reason of at least sharing a free yoga class to 8 people every week for the gratitude of a new Life that my Yoga practice offered me. Deep inside encouraged myself to keep pushing for matters a lot me.
What motivates you every day to be even more successful?
Every time I look at my to do list and see how people have trusted me with their wellbeing, drawled me closer like family, trusted me, respected me despite of my looks, age and personality, the way I earn from my passion and the way Life Manifests its goodness to me all these push me towards success in spite of the challenges of course as many humans face Life
What do you have to say to all of the people who doubted you?
To all who doubted me, I dedicate this quote "If Nature is Prohibited then Life Has No Meaning" I was destined for greatness from the moment I started loving . Love can neverlLeave us alone.
What advice do you give to aspiring creatives who look up to you?
To all aspiring creative souls what you call blessings will manifest if you make good and meet in the world, use the chances you get combined with enough preparations.
Investment truly pays off greatly. Investment in time, knowledge, connections ., resources,love , wellbeing And most of it all they should know that your network is your net worth. All people we meet in this world, negative, positive, good, bad, rich, poor, connected or not give us the experience that grooms success in our lives,
All it takes is positivity towards challenges, self-love, gratitude, passion, and the burning desire for enlightenment.
