When I attended Hoko‘s Birthday Event, I was just getting into my whole “fitness” lifestyle. I was (and still am!) slowly discovering who I am now that I am no longer the “sick Megan”. I was slowly pushing boundaries & seeing what I am now capable of. I am trying to maintain a positive outlook on life, & I am always scouting around for new techniques or products that can help me with this. I don’t want to focus on how much weight I need to lose, or how I CAN’T do certain movements in my gym class. I want to focus on the good around me – because there is so much there. There are kind people; there are good people; I am alive & I am ABLE to do so much more than I ever dreamed of. This time last year I was walking with a cane, choking on food, unable to speak & we didn’t know how much longer I had on this earth. How can I not be grateful for the second chance I have been given?
And then… I came across Mind Your Hero & I felt like I had found a soul-sister & our hearts were connected through some invisible pull! I took one of her cards & knew that I wanted to find out more about how this all came about as well as help more people to discover their inner hero. I have realised the importance of journaling & working through emotions rather than allowing them to overwhelm you.

Tell me a bit more about what you do: Mind Your Hero is a brand aimed at helping people transform their mindsets to understand and know their worth in order to accomplish more than what they thought they were capable of. We do this by giving people the tools they need to become the Hero of their life.
The tools that we believe in have worked for millions of people, and we deliver them in a simple and practical way. We have the beautiful Find Your Inner Hero Journal that has daily guides and monthly challenges. This journal is a self-mastery tool that if used consistently will help you improve by 1% every day. Mind Your Hero also has online courses and 1:1 coaching available to help transform your life even further from being ordinary to that of an extraordinary one. Every one has an inner hero that resides with in them. We just have to learn how to tap into our own power to become the Hero we always thought we needed to save us. Turns out we can save ourselves by unleashing and becoming our own Hero.
mn For years I have been fascinated by neuroscience, manifestation, meditation, the mind and how you can rewire it, the power of positive thinking and many other topics of a similar nature. In 2018 I embarked on the life changing journey of being one of 36 of the MAD2Run runners, running from Johannesburg to Cape Town to raise funds for the MAD Leadership foundation. This experience put into practice all that I had learnt about having a strong mindset and I truly got to witness the power that we all have at our disposal if we know how to tap into it. I came back from that experience and decided to launch a journal. I wanted more than anything to help others learn about the power of their minds and above all else know the power of self-love and worth. I have invested so much in my own personal development. I have undergone both psychology and coaching and know the profound effects that both have had on my life. I wanted to give back the knowledge I had gained in a way that people would not find overwhelming or intimidating. I often come across people who are on the edge of a breakthrough, but they crave guidance in how to achieve their desires. I have also come across people who subconsciously know they would thrive from receiving help but are too afraid to ask for it as they view that as a sign of weakness. I want to encourage people that working on themselves is one of the most admirable and courageous things you can do for yourself. This is why I love the Find Your Inner Hero journal so much! It is something that you can do in your own time, it’s simple to use but the exercises are though provoking and life changing if used consistently. There is also of course the element of fun added to the journals which I believe helps to make for a Magical experience.
This all started out as a passion project and has since grown into something much bigger than I could have imagined to which I am eternally grateful for. This journey has led me into becoming a manifestation coach and a guided meditation facilitator. I am currently working toward becoming an internationally accredited NLP (Neuro-Lingustics Programming), Time based technique and hypnosis practitioner. The best is yet to come!
Why do you think this is so vital in today’s stressful world: In today’s world, there are so many societal pressures. The rise in social media has consequently seen a rise in anxiety, depression and other mental illnesses. We are constantly comparing ourselves to people’s highlight reels on social media and have ultimately lost our identities. Because we have lost our identities, we have started living lives that are not in alignment to our own highest values. This leaves people feeling unfulfilled and as though their life has no purpose. People don’t know what they truly want because they don’t know who they are. The greatest human condition I believe that we are all suffering to some degree is the feeling of “I am not Enough”. I hope to inspire people to find themselves again through journaling and by asking themselves better questions. I truly believe that if you retrain your mind to believe that you are enough then everything else will fall into place. The Find Your Inner Hero journal is the start to that journey of self discovery and acceptance. There are of course many other levels that you can go to and we are working extremely hard behind the scenes to launch some very exciting things in the months to come. The Mind Your Hero brand is expanding and will hopefully have a tool for everyone who is battling with any area in their life.
Where can people buy them from: Online from our website.
Who would you recommend them for: Anyone who is struggle with accepting themselves. Anyone who is looking to find a new goal and achieve living a dream life of their choosing. Anyone who knows about the power of journaling but has no idea where to start. People who have past hurts they want to heal and let go of. People who are looking for a little spark of Magic to help them through life.
Why is self-love so important: When you reach a place of loving and accepting yourself fully, things fall into place in your life. People start to treat and love you with the same respect you have for yourself, finances, career opportunity, spiritual growth, your health and fitness journey, absolutely everything becomes easier. Self-love is the catalyst to all your desires. What people often don’t see is that life is made up of mirrors reflecting back to us the lessons we still need to learn within ourselves. Self-love helps us asses the lessons we still need to learn from a place of non judgement and mindfulness.
