Van delivers a message which inspires people to believe in themselves and live the lives that they want to live. He demonstrates through real life experiences that we can all achieve far more when we believe in ourselves.
One of his stories tells us about his own mother who defied the medical profession when he was left to die with typhoid at 5years old. The doctors could do no more for him and so he was expected to die, when his mother who was pregnant with his sister was told that they could do no more she discharged him from hospital and with no medical training she brought him back almost from the dead through her own self belief and love.
It’s not what you’ve done it’s what you can do.
