Bill Walsh PT — Life is about 10%of what happens to us and 90% how we deal with it
This was plastered all over my pages.
It's a lovely piece and I am very grateful to the person who put this together, I never knew about it so a nice surprise for me.
So thank you.
A couple of things I would like to say about it if I can
I never boast or say stuff that isn't true, anything I've written has been all factual and 100% about me and my struggles accomplishments and life.
My life and my business is not all roses and butter cups, to get my business to where it is now hurt me a lot physically, mentally, financially. Everything took a massive hit.
Passion and love for what you do will get you to where you want to go. It has got me this far and when I left Ireland I left with nothing, I built a business literally from the ashes!!
I take massive inspiration from everyone and everything all the kind words people give me all the success stories we've had everything.
I'm a very emotional guy unfortunately and I wear my heart on my sleeve all the time some good some bad.
Business is hard life is hard, it's hard because nothing comes easy and that's what makes it sweet when you achieve tings and smash goals.
I know that from the last few years, I've been kicked down and got up everytime stronger than before. It's frightening the strength I have found and gained.
Some weeks/months I struggled to find the money to keep everything afloat. I struggled massively and I'm not afraid to admit it.
Struggle is a massive part of life and business.
Life is about 10%of what happens to us and 90% how we deal with it.
If you are good at your job and you are passionate and persistent, good things will come to you.
Surround yourself with good people ( Iam very fortunate for this I have a beautiful support network that I wouldn't change for the world)
I get to go home and see such a beautiful little girl in talulla blue she fills me with love determination and commitment to provide for her every day, she has changed our lives in so many ways and I will be forever grateful to her for that.
This is by no means a rags to riches story by any stretch.
What this is, is someone who wasn't happy and wasn't happy for a long period of time doing something they hated! Which gave me minimal passion and drive in that moment.
So I took a risk, a lot actually, one after another struggled for years physically, financially, emotionally and kept going and is coming out the other side bigger stronger and happier.
I followed my heart and I followed my passion I always say what will come with that is not in my hands.
But I have goals and things I want to achieve and put in place.
I am not a good actor or model or any of that stuff that's just fun time for me it helps me unwind and gives me a laugh and keeps my mind fresh that's not the job as such my job is changing people's lives.
And I'm a damn good trainer.
I've built a business from the ashes. Put my blood, sweat and tears into making my business what is it today it's not perfect it's not where I want it to be YET but I will get there I'm playing a long game it's not a short game.
I am humble and not shy to ask for help, I have even if it's hasn't been fruitful said yes to every opportunity people provide me in the past couple of years.
So I can look back and say I tried it, it's not right for me thank you!
Moral of this story -
Work damn hard
Don't give up
Show up every day
Be passionate about what you want to do
