Creating Ripples Across Generations

I didn’t fit in when I was a kid. Born in a ghetto in northern England, I was surrounded by alcohol, addiction, and violence. I left my home at 21 years old to begin to study around the world, and then in 1984 I became a public speaker. Then, in 1990, something happened. I was an adrenaline junkie, and my friend […]

Creating Ripples Across Generations
I didn’t fit in when I was a kid. Born in a ghetto in northern England, I was surrounded by alcohol, addiction, and violence.

I didn’t fit in when I was a kid. Born in a ghetto in northern England, I was surrounded by alcohol, addiction, and violence. I left my home at 21 years old to begin to study around the world, and then in 1984 I became a public speaker.

Then, in 1990, something happened. I was an adrenaline junkie, and my friend and I decided to go free-climbing. At about 120 feet up, a rock dislodged and I fell 12 stories down onto the rocks below.

That fall wasn’t the moment where everything changed, though. I just buried himself deeper into my own ego. It wasn’t until I reached my “choice point,” where I started to face that denial, and went through nine months of grinding against that before I truly saw a transformation

Until we’re looking at our pain, you don’t really find your purpose.

Most of us don’t want to deal with pain, but your pain is not something to be afraid of. It’s a guidance system, not only physically but psychologically. It tells you what matters to you.

I want you to ask yourself a set of questions:

What has bothered me for as long as I can remember? What is it about owning my power that scares me? Who will suffer if I choose not to fulfill my purpose?

Somebody will suffer if you choose not to step into your greatness.

I see you, I believe in your greatness. I believe you were born with deep greatness. You did not come to this planet without a reason. You did not get your dreams by accident. They are your heart and soul crying out for expression.

Answer those three questions.

Sit with those three questions. Meditate on those three questions. When you get the answers, go deeper, and deeper, and deeper, and you will reveal to yourself your soul’s quest.
