'I had nothing left to lose'
Friday the 13th - the day I officially filed for bankruptcy.
I remember the day so clearly because Darren, my trustee, joked about it being Friday the 13th.
After spending weeks beating myself up about the situation and carrying so much embarrassment, shame, guilt and judgement it was a welcomed change in mood.
For me, it was the ultimate failure - and up until that point the hardest moment of my life.
Little did I know, it was just the start of my 18 months from hell.
Life threw everything at me...
✗ My business was shut down.
✗ I got fired from 3 jobs.
✗ I applied and got rejected from over 50 jobs.
✗ I split with my girlfriend.
✗ I had no money.
✗ No job.
✗ No car.
✗ No direction.
And this was just the beginning...
I felt the loneliest I'd ever been and I was days away from being homeless (before an old family friend took me in).
I remember saying to one of my best mates (now a business partner) “Everything can be taken from me but at least I still have my physical and mental health”.
Bless his cotton socks for not saying anything, but I definitely didn't have my mental health and one week after that (and 15 months since it all started) I ended up in hospital with what they thought was meningococcal.
I literally had nothing left to lose.
I was completely broken and surrendered.
So at the cherry ripe age of 35 I moved back to Adelaide and moved in with my mum. For me, without a job and not a cent to my name I didn’t know what else to do.
I remember the darkest moment so clearly when I thought to myself "It would be easier if I just jumped - I get why blokes do it...". It would have relieved the extreme levels of pressure I was feeling - but I also didn't want to take that option and I knew from what I had learnt, that I had the tools to help me through this. That I would find a way out.
I wasn't sure how but I knew that I would.
Every time my mind wandered to the future it looked so dark and bleak; I had to come back to trying to be present. In September 2019 the climb from the bottom of the pit started.
I got a job as a dish-pig at my brother's cafe.
One week after doing an Ayahuasca ceremony the concept for 'MoMENtum' was born. 6 weeks after that we hosted our first event in Sydney. Then from September 2019 to 2020 my world rose just as quickly as it had fallen the year before.
By September 2020 I had found myself in Byron Bay having the time of my life.
The big thing that kept me alive and going
(other than hope)...
Was a deep understanding of mindset, mental health and fulfilment. Now I get to work with clients through my life coaching and share those learnings to give them the tools to free themselves of limiting conditions; and find their potential, purpose and fulfilment.
If this resonates with you, you're not alone...
I've worked with 100's of people who have been in a similar situation - or experienced their own struggles.
It doesn't have to take years to get your life back on track, but it does take your commitment to making the first step.
I help clients collapse time from where they are, to where they want to be and fast track their results so they can start living a life by design, free from the limiting conditions that are holding them back.
This really is EXACTLY what I needed when I was at my rock bottom - you dont have to struggle and find the answers on your own...
