Adversity introduces a man to himself.

It’s in that moment, we get to find out who you really are.

We get to stare into your soul and see what you’re made of

It’s then when we get to see whether your talk is cheap

Whether you have the strength and courage

It’s in that moment, when we get to see what it is you value

What you stand for,

Because everyone is ok when things are going well, 

But when things begin to falter, the truth is quickly revealed.

Some will rise and conquer

Others will look for a way out, for an excuse

And sell their souls to the devil

You must look at yourself in the mirror and decide which you want to be.

Because the stakes have never been higher, 

And the world has never relied on you more.

Don’t look back in anger, maintain the hope And be determined to do things a little different.

  • Communication is not a one way street
    Communication is not a one way street. It’s not about talking, it’s about listening. It’s not about reacting, it’s about responding. It’s not about knowing, It’s about understanding. It’s not about judgement or pretense It’s about connection.
  • Leaving it all behind
    Some things are certainly worth holding onto -  Others we just hold onto because we are too afraid to say goodbye.  Not because we can’t But because doing so means facing our own mortality
  • Ahead of the game
    It’s easy to play life on the back foot Always playing defence. Always waiting, always passive, always reactive.
