I’ve walked the same steps as you are right now. I’ve been at the lowest point anyone can get in life. I’ve run the gauntlet of life. I’ve suffered as you have. I’ve got to the point in life where I had no idea what my purpose was or why I was even on this planet.
Hi, my name is Neil and I have a passion for helping others get the best out of life and become the best version of themselves. I spent a fair number of years in the military and served both with the UN and NATO in Bosnia during the civil war which erupted in 1992.
Upon leaving the military I was diagnosed with suffering from PTSD as well as anxiety. The early days become very dark for me, but rather than sit and let it take over my life I built coping strategies and techniques to help me deal with it. I hate taking medication so the last place I was going to go was to see my GP.
Not everything I did worked, so I would try something different until I found things that did. I am a firm believer that self-help was the best way forward for me. As a result, I was a changed person. Not only was I able to cope with what was going on in my head but I also learned a great deal about we work as humans and why we do the things we do.
After leaving the military I moved around a bit, took a few different jobs, went through a divorce. I will admit that I was finding the transition hard going. I was trying to find my feet and still didn’t really understand my purpose.
After my wife walked out with my son, I was left with a feeling of worthlessness and it was at this time I was at the lowest point of my entire life. I don’t need to tell you where that goes.
Like a Pheonix from the fire, I arose up. I had pushed myself into doing a lot of martial arts (MMA) as a release from everyday life. I started to get myself together again.
At the same time, I began to read a lot of books on self-help and personal development. I must have read hundreds. Everything was making sense and the books I was reading were about people who had been just like me.
With the techniques which I had taught myself and with what I was reading my life began to change dramatically.
In 2015 I started my own nanotechnology business. The product I had was not known in the UK so I had my work cut out. I took the company from scratch to building up to become the leading business in the country gave me a great sense of achievement.
I was still hungry for my passion for getting the best from others so focused my self-learning on NLP based training. To my surprise, once I got into it I realised that what I was learning was already in my knowledge base from the strategies I had taught myself so many years earlier.
This is me now with my passion for guiding others to find their own purpose in life
