Breaking the cycle of struggle; Steve Whyte was born in North West London (Harlesden), England 1986 in an area best known at that time for gun crime, drugs and at risk youth. At the age of six Steve was introduced to the sport basketball which was the foundation of his discipline throughout his teen years, until undergoing surgery in his knee which prevented him from playing at the level which he desired.
The heartbreaking end of one career wasn't enough to stop Steve from aiming high. It wasn't long after this disaster when teachers in school wrote him off predicting that he would never be successful. Steve overcame bullying, sickness, abuse, torture, addiction, affliction and the death of his Daughter, and needed no additional motivation to bring his dream into reality. He began writing encouraging material throughout his pain with hope to help someone else get through theirs. In pursuit of excellence Steve transformed his life in 5 years and now teaches others how to do the same.

“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
