About Shiraz Mirza

My name is Shiraz, I’ve been married to my amazing wife for over 22 years and I am the father of 3 beautiful children.
When I was younger my parents separated, I did what many other kids do, I blamed my self and unconsciously felt like I didn’t belong (even though later they did get back together). I wanted to make my parents proud of me and set out to become an achiever to regain acceptance and the love I felt I was missing. 
At school I applied myself to every sport, achieving many awards e.g. Sport Person Of The Year, but I didn’t achieve the acceptance I was craving for from my parents as their focus was on my academic studies
 I studied really hard but didn’t get the grades I needed to fulfil my parents dream of me becoming a doctor like my father.
 When I left University and worked myself up the career ranks faster than any of my peers achieving the corporate status and financial pay checks I still didn’t feel satisfied as I was at work more than I was with my family.
Now being a firm believer of everything in life happens for a reason I was fired from that job after 7 years of being their top performer because I was young, dumb and full of testosterone.
So that took me on another journey in my life which was to work in banking. Now as much as I hated the lack of ethics and integrity of how the banks operated I did come across a motivational speaker and master NLP practitioner that inspired me and finally connected the missing jigsaw piece of the purpose in my life. That was to inspire others to become the best version of themselves, to help others step out of their comfort zones and discover the hidden talents and abilities they have and live their life’s by a design of their choice.
This amazing journey as a personal development coach has not been the easiest way forward, it has come with many hard challenges that I had to overcome. I have reached a level in life where my career has taken me from working in schools, colleges, Universities, business groups, SME businesses, corporate groups to CEO's and HR Group Directors in countries such as Ethiopia, Sudan, Botswana, Ghana, Kenya etc. Delivering face to face seminars, working with clients online and building my own practise up.

Here are some of the things I've achieved:

"The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential... 

​these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence"

Why Am I here?
Here At Sm3 Empowerment I believe in helping you to do things differently.
I believe in helping you challenge the status duo of life and live life on our terms.

Einstein himself said insanity is doing the same thing over and over again yet expecting a different result, so naturally if you want a different result it might make sense to take on a coach who can give you the discipline and guidance to help you by showing you the 'wood from the tree's' and empower you to make the changes you want.  

What I do is to empower you with the right skill set and mindset to succeed in life at anything you want to do, by helping you tap into your own resources so you can unlock your true potential.
How I do it is through a comprehensive Personal Leadership/Development training program through YB12, and also my knowledge from being a master NLP practitioner and coach.
NLP is used for personal development and for success in business. NLP is the practice of understanding how people organise their thinking, feeling, language and behavior to produce the results they do. 
NLP provides people with a methodology to model outstanding performances achieved by people who have already succeeded, saving you the time and effort of learning from scratch.
