Whilst in hospital, I encountered an inspirational young man by the name of Trevor, who was 2 years younger than me and paralysed from the neck down. His positivity and sense of humour, despite his situation was infectious and through him, I became aware of the things I would be able to do for myself, things he would never be able to do. So, from that time onwards, I have never felt sorry for myself and have always strived to think positively about what I could achieve.
I knew I wanted to achieve something of worth, but I did not, at that time know what. I learned the key to achieving a fulfilling life was going to be management of my mindset and having the resilience to maintain positivity, drive and focus in the face of severe challenges.
I focused on getting fit and strong, I joined a wheelchair basketball team and eventually started working in the field of Telephone Sales. This career led me to understand the power of the mindset and I decided that despite being disabled I would be the best Telesales Person in any environment I worked in, so I studied, read books on sales, self-improvement and biographies of successful people. I got promoted and eventually, I decided to set up my own Telesales based company. I employed many dozens of people over a 20+ year period, diversified into property development, internet retail and supported disability employment projects.
I am now passionate about sharing the benefit of my lifetime experiences to coach people, through the power and magic of the mindset to achieve the goals they set and live a life of fulfilment and reward.
