5 Painfully Obvious Truths We Tend to Forget in Hard Times

We know deep down that life is short, and that death will happen to all of us eventually, and yet we are infinitely surprised when it happens to someone we know. It’s like walking up a flight of…

Feeling Stuck? Time To Move Forward!

Moving with Momentum

Some months ago if you had asked me what I wanted to do with my life, it would have been one of the hardest questions I could face. When asked by friends I hadn’t seen in a while, I played the sort of verbal backhand that even Roger Federer would have been pleased to deliver. Forget the fact the question would awaken feelings of negative self-worth and uncertainty. The truth was I just literally had no answer.

Having worked over the years in various occupations from building houses, selling houses to selling technology across different platforms, some might say that I was “doing alright”. The reality was although these occupations and careers seemed right on the outside, they ground me down on the inside.

In 2016, I made a pretty big decision. I quit my job at a top firm in London, slung a backpack over my shoulder and went travelling; no plans, just a one-way ticket into the most mental 18 months of my life. (Sharing soon)

Across the 18 months, I was able to let loose, really loose but one small tiny little grain of doubt & uncertainty was slowly building into one of the fiercest mental storms I’ve ever had to weather.

“What am I going to do with my life when I get home”

Looking back, leaving my glamorous life behind was the easy part. Figuring out what to do with myself, what path to take after I was done “ letting off steam “ was going to prove incredibly hard and having some pretty strict criteria, I wasn’t making the task easy on myself.

I arrived back to normality in March of 2019, faced with the reality that the storm that had been rumbling away in the background was now fully overhead.

Penniless, directionless and almost certainly option-less, I was in the eye of the storm with nothing but a metal rod for cover.

The fact I could not face going back to the corporate lifestyle or work for someone else ruled out a lot of options and left me looking at becoming self-reliant.

I started not one, but two businesses with a certain degree of success, but not at a level that was going to allow me to leave my parents’ house in a blaze of glory or that lit my soul alight. So suddenly! I became paralysed.
