Somebody once told me I should teach people how to be disciplined…

It was a very interesting thought…

Because to be honest I was just born like this…

I have always been disciplined…

So when people hear about my cancer story…

They ask me:

How did you do it?

Get up everyday

Drag yourself to exercise when you were sick as a dog

Change your eating habits with no guarantees was actually helping anything…

Truth is it would have been much easier to eat whatever I wanted and to sit in the sofa feeling sorry for myself…

People don’t like to talk about this…

But when you have cancer the whole world feel sorry for you…

Which to be honest while you are in the middle of it…

The best description I can find for that feeling is in Brene Brown’s latest book:

“Researches found that cancer patients on the receiving end of sympathy describe it as an unwanted, superficial, pity-based response that, although well intended, is focused on the observer’s discomfort rather than on aliviating the patient’s distress.”

So yes very early on I understood that I couldn’t rely on anyone to feel better about myself…

I needed to rely on me…

Cancer was a great condensed experience to what was ahead of me…

Becoming an entrepreneur…

When I started my business 2 years ago, I realised that…

Nobody was going to give me their time of the day to listen to my ups and downs…

Nobody was going to tell me: “Get back on your feet” when I would get knocked down…

Nobody was going to tell me: Are you ok?

Nobody but ME…

I was the only who needed to tell myself:

“𝙇𝙚𝙩’𝙨 𝙜𝙤

𝙂𝙚𝙩 𝙪𝙥 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙢𝙤𝙫𝙚 𝙛𝙤𝙧𝙬𝙖𝙧𝙙

𝙔𝙤𝙪 𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝙙𝙤𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙖𝙣 𝙞𝙣𝙘𝙧𝙚𝙙𝙞𝙗𝙡𝙚 𝙟𝙤𝙗”

Burnout is so prominent these days because entrepreneurs are not taking time to do any self care…

They are chasing the success and money from an empty tank…

They think they can trick their bodies…

To eat crap

To sleep little

To produce good results consistently

Here is my (AKA Stage 3 Bowel Cancer survivor and thriver) 2 cents on it…

There is not tricking your body…

If you are falling into procrastination…

Not being productive enough…

It is your body tricking you to try to tell you…

I am not running on the right fuel…

You are not servicing me properly…

I have a problem which will become a bigger problem unless you do something about it…

I am super passionate about it because I have been there…

Use and abuse my body thinking I could just get away with it…

So now…

If you are courageous enough to

STOP and acknowledge you are on that road…

Which it is not an advisable road by the way…

but you want to do something about it…

let’s chat…

I am looking to work with 3 entrepreneurs in the month of April, May and June

who want to create different physical and emotional habits…

So they can create the life they want…

Nobody wishes to have millions of money and tons of sickness…

But unless you do something about your health everyday…

Your health ain’t getting better by itself…

It is just like the money thing…

You need to work at it…

If that is you, book a call below
