Do Not Just Settle: Stand Out Like Lunga Ntuli

Lunga Ntuli

Lunga Ntuli is more than just a self-published author,  who serves in the DUT Department of Sports Studies' advisory board, freelances publications like Isolezwe, GSports and Sunday Times and also works as a sports mental coach.

This serial achiever has served as a soccer coach instructor, media liason for giant sports bodies, and as a coach for a women's cricket club - which he started. Also worth noting is the sponsorship work he has done working with big names like Jockey, Aquelle, P&G and Amazulu.

It hasn't been all easy for Ntuli. He has been undermined and has faced a lot of rejection, but has kept going because he refused to be an ordinary person with ordinary dreams. He says "when you have this mentality you then have to face a lot of rejection and people who undermine you." As a way of overcoming his challenges, Ntuli relies on two solid means: hard work and God. "Mine is to desire and God then takes care of the desires of my heart. I did not pass matric with good results, I worked as a car guard to save registration fee to university..." says Ntuli.

His hard-work ethic also drives him to be more than what you might on the outside. He elaborates: "whatever titles I have behind me, I am not just that... As a writer I am not just a writer but I am a self-published author so this means I don't just settle."

These days Ntuli is writing about the AFCON, under the employment of Back Page Media, while also doing sports mental coaching and running a sports development program at local crèches. Also look out for mini tours where he will be talking about his latest book 'Why Men Cheat and Women Do It Better', which is also going to be made into a movie, soon. Ntuli is also set on Publishing two more books by the end of 2015.

Having been raised in Thembeni (Groutville) he has not forgotten where he comes from. "I am obsessed about community development and helping others out. The project that we do in my organisation called 'Talent Is Never Enough' is very close to my heart because I get to nurture the natural talent from the dusty streets"
