Just days after the fire, when I was still in an induced coma, Michael went out and bought my engagement ring.
At the time, he didn’t even know if I would live or die!
But he said to his Dad “If she lives, I’m gonna marry her”.
I think about this moment a lot.
Not just because I’m so bloody grateful to have a man like this in my life, but because I think it illustrates something we can all understand:
Growing up, we all have these ideas of how we want our life to be.
But sometimes, “life” gets in the way and we stop believing it could be any different.
Maybe you’ve lost sight of what you wanted your life to be.
Maybe you’ve lost hope and you’ve just accepted that what you have is all that will be.
People are always amazed by how much I’ve accomplished since the fire. But you know what?
Surviving the fire gave me two choices:
Live in hope; or give up.
And I’ll be damned if I was going to give up.
I’m not going to lie and say it was easy. But the days when I really struggled, when the pain was so agonising, when I believed I had no future, I looked at Michael and I borrowed his hope.
His belief in ME that I could get through this.
Having someone believe that much in you is the most powerful thing EVER.
Even if you don’t believe in yourself right now or think you can’t get through the next challenge, having someone else who does to keep you moving forward is all you really need.
If you don’t feel like you are capable of believing in yourself right now, do what I did and borrow some.
Use me. Borrow my belief in you.
Because I know that you are so much more capable of living the life you want than you even realise.
And that’s what School of Champions boils down to.
Yes, it contains all the mindset strategies I used to recover from the fire and yes, it unpacks the steps I take to achieve my big goals like Ironman.
But really, what School of Champions offers you is my support, and the support of hundreds of others.
It’s one thing to give you all the tools and resources to change your life, but to stand beside you in firm belief that you’ve got this, is quite another.
I don’t want you to wake up one day only to realise that time is running out on you.
NOW is the time to step up.
Borrow my belief in you and start making your dreams a reality.
