Rollover to Zoom 



I always knew I'd be a shepherd. Not in the literal sense, but in the sense that I knew I would be a leader. One that people would seek direction from. Seek guidance, inspiration, and answers from. Up until a few years ago, I was the furthest thing from a shepherd. I was the proverbial sheep. My whole life had been run by someone else's dream, someone else's goals. I would do things because I was expected to do so. That word, 'expect, ' has become something sacred to me, along with another word: success. Those words in combination came much later, though. I was doing what I thought was expected of me, what I was supposed to do. As you'll discover, growing up for me wasn't exactly a walk in the park. Don't get me wrong, I had a wonderful, loving family and great friends, but I always felt like I was different. I was fascinated by the world outside of Galway, outside of Ireland, and always looked to places like America for inspiration. In school, I always tried to go about my business and fit in. As you'll find out, this didn't always go as planned. I was bullied, big time, to the point where I kept my voice hidden and locked up for fear of being ridiculed more. I did what everyone else did, even if I didn't agree with it. Other kids were skipping school, so I'd skip school, too. Same could be said about alcohol and trouble. I always hung around with guys a little older than me. Guess I wanted to fit in with the cooler guys. I did what they did because it's what I was supposed to do, right? Same in college, I did what everyone else did, still hiding my true voice. Still following someone else's path, not my own. College was fantastic and I thoroughly enjoyed my time there, had my degree in the bag, and now what? London. Investment Banking, here I come. This, too, was someone else's dream, not mine. The problem was that I somehow managed to sabotage myself each and every time. I thought I was just not hire-able and wasn't suitable. And at some level, that was probably true. I've now to come to realise that I was purposely self-sabotaging because investment banking and finance wasn't the path for me. It was something else entirely. I was going through some major changes as all my work over the last few years seemed like it was for nothing. I was completely lost and didn't know where I was going in life. Was this normal? If it was, it sure as hell shouldn't be. Proinnsias (one of my friends) and I decided we'd both head off somewhere and get our heads straight. This time I said to Proinnsias, "We're going to do something that's not normal, against the grain." I was sick of dong what everyone else did. It was time to do what I wanted. "Where will we go?" he asked. "Not Australia, not Canada, and not America. Everyone goes to those places. I know, we'll go to South America. I don't know anyone that's ever gone there...." That, as you'll discover, was one of the best decisions of my life. You will discover: -The real reason you cannot change and why no amount of positive thinking will fix it... -How to overcome the threats in your life keeping you from excelling... -The three types of people you need in your life to succeed... -How to tap into the power of the three words that will change your life and business forever... -The secret to breaking free from the shackles of living someone else's life so you can start living your own... -How to start accepting failure for what it really is... -The 'expect success' mentality that allows you the freedom and confidence to do whatever you want... -The powerful question that if answered openly and honestly will set the stage for you to live your dream life... -And much more...
