Most of us will have, or known someone who has, endured remarkably challenging events in their lives; some have championed them and gone onto enjoy fulfilling and happy lives, others are not with us today.
Life has an unwavering ability to give us an array of amazing experiences and yet, in a heartbeat break us down to our core.
From drowning (and being revived), to life-changing health issues and broken marriages. Being bullied at school and never really feeling like we fit in. Leaving home at 15, moving countries and starting with nothing to having teenage children hooked on drugs. Failed businesses and financial devastation, to loosing father’s much too early and seeing friends find solace in suicide.
And this is just part of our story….
Mark and I became friends and professional colleagues through joint ventures we worked on in our respective businesses; renovating and building related.
However, in recent times both of us went through traumatic events that led us to a crossroad. It was a bit like the ‘blue pill or red pill’ choice. In our own lives we were struggling to find a reason to keep going – either we were heading down a very dark path with little hope of returning or we were going to use these events as a trigger to grow and make massive changes. We both learnt one thing that’s impacted the course of our lives; no matter what, we all have the power of choice, and we chose to live.
It was a simple choice but one that took a mountain of resilience, vulnerability and ongoing self-reflection and learning over months, to find a new purpose and direction in life, and it went way beyond even that.
Throughout this time, we leant on each other for mutual support on an almost daily basis as we found little ‘help’ available that really resonated with us. While fulfilling a significant resource for many, a traditional counsellor and psychologist wasn’t what we needed. We didn’t want an academically educated ‘ear’ as we felt they couldn’t actually relate to what we were going through. What we wanted was someone who had been through our pain and not only come out the other side, but had found some way of growing as a result.
We came to understand the emotional barriers, social conditioning and ego driven behaviours that hold so many of us back from realising our true potential.
Quite simply; we didn’t know what we didn’t know.
And so… we started a journey that had no destination; a constant journey of living in the ‘now’. In doing so, we have found an overwhelming sense of physical and emotional strength, single-minded purpose and a ‘lighter’ and more positive approach to life.
We have no initials after our name and our qualifications are 100% experience only.
Our mentoring and coaching sessions and the ‘Warrior’ program will not only help you through the hardest of times but introduce you to ideas, resources and tools to look at life from a different perspective and set yourself on a path to truly finding out who you are and what you want from your life.
It’s about finding a clear sense of direction and inspiration for living a truly fulfilling life.
