ON A MISSION TO LEAVE THE WORLD IN A BETTER PLACE THAN WHEN I FOUND IT. CARE TO JOIN ME?
After years of struggling to find my place in the world, navigating my late teens and early twenties I’m now on a mission to raise human consciousness and leave the world in a better place than when I found it. But it hasn’t always been this way…
My story began as a 17-year-old college dropout. University was never an option for me, and college was the next best thing. I studied computers because that’s what others said I was good at. I didn’t know what I wanted to do, nor really cared.
That changed in my second year of college where I felt I wasn’t learning anything new. So, I dropped out. I spent 3 months figuring out what I wanted to do and discovered business and entrepreneurship. It was like the world opened up to me. The only problem was, I don’t come from a business or entrepreneurial background, and I had no idea where to turn so I got a business apprenticeship which led me down a very different path to the one I was expecting.
I fell into the 9 to 5 grind, working in an office environment full of office politics and negativity. It started well, and throughout my time I was consistent and a hard worker but I hated 95% of my time there. Yet, I ended up staying there for over 5 years. I was in a rut and stuck in the system, and alongside other challenges outside of work, like trying to fit in and appease family and friends I hit rock bottom. I hit a state of depression, chronic anxiety, and panic attacks and I even found it challenging to go into a supermarket. During this time, I started and failed at many different ventures with the aim to get out of my 9 to 5 from, my own YouTube Vlog, to a clothing line, an education platform and community, and many different projects in between.
I started to come across more and more personal development, personal growth, and self-help content which I’ve used to change my life for the better and overcome depression, anxiety, and panic attacks without medical intervention such as popping pills which I believed was always possible. I believed it was always possible because I couldn’t make the connection between how a pill would help control my thoughts and how I viewed the world. That was on me, and having the courage to change my situation.
My personal growth journey has led me down a path of prioritising and unlocking a passion for health, human behaviour, and what it means to be human as well as becoming more spiritual, and developing the understanding that everything is consciousness. More on that for another day 😉.
Over the last few years I’ve realised and accepted that I don’t fit into a box, and do any of us really? I’ve learned to accept my multi-passionate, polymath nature, introverted tendencies, and imperfections.
I’ve become clear on the core values I stand for such as love, kindness, health, honesty, freedom, optimism, growth, and purpose and the difference that I want to make in the world.
This has led to the birth of lfo, starting Raising Consciousness, as well as becoming a local host for Rebel Meetups, MindValley, and connecting with some of the most amazing people on this beautiful planet we call home.
And, while I’m not where I want to be I’m grateful for the journey thus far, have a compelling vision for the future, and a mission and purpose to leave the world in a better place than when I found it. If you care to join me on this mission, drop me a message! I’m always open for a chat.
