In an exclusive chat with SCHICK Magazine’s Editor-in-Chief, Simi Esiri on the new Stay Home, Stay Safe, Stay Connected podcast, South African celebrity chef and media personality, Lorna Maseko gets personal, revealing what she’s learnt about herself while in isolation, staying disciplined and inspired and even some of her favourite memories from childhood – which naturally, include food.
“I think the biggest thing I’ve realised [in this time] is how powerful the mind is. A lot of things we do in life are decisions,” Lorna says. “It’s a decision to get up in the morning and do something; it’s a decision to love someone, it’s not a feeling. Life has nothing to do with feelings.”
“I now realise that the most successful people are [that way] because they made a decision to be successful.”
Speaking on the challenges of her work, Lorna reveals, “I would say, on a personal note, always trying to be the best and always wanting more. It’s like a double-edged sword – it could work either way. Some people are okay with just being average but I never want to surround myself with mediocrity.”
