I am a Success: How I went from Big Fat Zero to My Own Personal Hero

I’ve decided to make 2018 my year to achieve all that I am capable of achieving.

I’ve decided to share this with you all because I desire to be a force for change in the world. I want to show all the average Joe’s out there that it is possible to change and to achieve success. I also want to track my efforts and hopefully bring you all along for the ride.

It has taken me a long, long road to get to the point where I can say that I am a success. Even now this is an incredibly difficult thing for me to say. But I am able to say it.

You see this is so hard to say, for two reasons:

1. I was programmed by my upbringing not to say such things, and

2. I used to be a massive loser.

It’s true. I used to be a real loser. When I was 20 I had really nothing going for me. I had given up every advantage of my well-off upbringing and elite boy-school education.

To be as brief and painless as possible:

  • I had dropped out of Uni and was working full time as a “checkout chick” in a supermarket. I was earning minimum wage and virtually living in my mother’s basement.
  • I was horribly overweight – weighing in, at my worst, at 126KG.
  • I hated the way I looked. I had no energy and no passion.
  • I hated the way I felt.  I had no love life at all. I didn’t even like myself.
  • I smoked and drank and other things.
  • I was depressed.

What turned it all around?
