Blind Hein shines bright
His tour, sponsored by Bank Windhoek and supported by Channel 7, took the audience on a moving journey of Hein’s view on the world as a blind person. He shared some of his light and dark moments as well as his personal recipe to achieve extraordinary results in one’s life.
He was born blind but this has not stopped him to grab life. He leads a fulfilling and abundant life and never hesitates or stands back for any challenge. “I’ve taken on many daring adventures such as the Absa Cape Epic, mountain climbing, sailing from Cape Town to Rio, running several marathons and becoming the fastest blind driver in the world.” He holds the World Land Speed record for a blind driver.
“What an experience it was and we are grateful for the positive attitude of Hein, and also for the opportunity we got to listen to Hein here in the south. It was truly a wonderful experience. The time flew by so quickly, because we wanted to hear and laugh more”, said Louis and Anina Potgieter from Karasburg. Hein truly touched them with his positive views on life and that every moment for him is a challenge, and not an obstacle”, said Kobus Van Der Merwe, the Karasburg Branch Manager.
Hein’s humorous approach to everything in life has illuminated a lighter side of living in darkness and resonates with audiences around the world. Whether he has his audience rolling with laughter or doing introspection, he aims to leave them with the realisation that they have the capacity to achieve anything they set their minds to. Hein Wagner is living proof that despite the challenges that come our way, anything is possible. He does not allow his blindness to stand in the way of his dreams and people often refer to him as a blind man with exceptional vision.
