Growing up I was one of the fattest boys in my class.
I hated any type of exercise.
It was probably why I was always the last to be picked by my friends to be on their team when playing in the school playground.
One summer during gym class the teacher was giving us tips on how to improve our technique for a 100 metres sprint.
I don’t know why but for some reason I paid real close attention to every component.
At the end of the class we were all separated into groups to run the 100m.
Having always been the slowest or the last in sports at this point I “knew” be rubbish & expected to be last.
So when our group was called I joined the others at the starting line, ready to run our 100m.
“Ready, set… GO!” the teacher shouted.
Off we went.
Of course within the first few strides you could clearly see I was at the back of the group, with the more athletic class mates taking the lead easily.
I was ready to finish the race last, and I hadn’t even reached half way.
Then suddenly I got this sense of floating. Everything the teacher had just shown us all came together.
Before you knew it I breezed past the guy who was second last and just in front of me.
Funnily enough this guy had been teasing me for a few months for being fat.
I was surprised as I crossed the finishing line to not come last for the first time in my life in a race like this.
Now, everyday I meet people who have given up on their hopes, dreams and goals.
Whether it be patients or team members, I have made it my life’s work to help everyone achieve their goals.
This is what the concept of #liveAVIDly means – you are meant to have your cake and eat it too (especially when’s it a #vegan fudge brownie cake).
I love to help guide them to float across their own finishing lines.
This is why I do what I do. This is what I want for you.
Let massive limitless reproducible success be your response to your critics.
Thank you for reading this to the end. I wish you to have the best week, month, year of your life… let’s go!
