Life been throwing you too many curve balls?
And even though you’ve tried to put these things behind you, you’re having trouble getting back up again.
You’re not alone.
Every day millions of people find themselves in situations like poverty, war, loss of loved ones, and major illness, which prevents them from reaching their full potential.
But in times of adversity, people find the strength to do amazing things.
In fact, nearly every successful person has at least one story of hardship. Nelson Mandela spent 27 years in prison before he became president of South Africa. Colonel Sanders only became a successful restaurateur after failed careers as a lawyer and salesman.
So what’s the difference between them and others who accept defeat?
It’s because of the stories they tell themselves.
You see, when something terrible happens to us, we start looking for coping mechanisms as a way to make us feel better.
One of these coping mechanisms is to create a narrative around the event in order to help us make sense of it. We use these stories to help us understand cause and effect, and what our own role in the drama is.
But as these stories become ingrained in our minds, they start to affect how we view the world. So if we tell ourselves we are always going to be victims of circumstance, it becomes a paradigm that we always live by.
When you change your story, you change your paradigm. And you start to bridge the gap between how you’re currently living and how you want to live.
Now it’s not always easy to change your story. It takes a lot of resilience and patience. It may even require professional help.
And that’s why I’m here. I’m Doug Wright, and my motivational training ‘Will Never Give Up’ teaches you the strategies you need to help you push past trauma and adversity see them as opportunities to create massive change.
Imagine yourself a year from now having reached most of your goals, and creating exciting new ones that put on the path to a fulfilling, creative and happy life that’s full of passion and success.
Sounds far fetched? It’s not. In fact, if you start one of my motivational seminars now, that’s well within your reach.
And I should know. You see, four years ago I was in a head-on collision that not only left me physically impaired, it also left me in a state of mental and emotional trauma that many people expected would have a severe impact on my life.
Luckily I had a wonderful medical team, who worked tirelessly to bring me back from the brink of disaster. But there’s something else I had – a kind of ‘secret weapon’ if you like.
It was my attitude. You see, I knew I was going to survive this, and I never stopped fighting until I had fully recovered and could walk away the same man I had been before my ordeal.
But you know the strange thing? This experience turned out to be a blessing. Because I learned that when you accept adversity in a positive way, it becomes a source of inspiration. Thinking positively about life gives you the ability to learn from adversity, develop resilience, and move on.
My doctors were amazed. Ass. Prof. Martin Wullschleger, Director of Trauma Services at the Gold Coast University Hospital said, “Doug is a legend! I met him through really unfortunate circumstances as part of his medical team. As a surgeon and member of the Trauma team, I looked after Doug throughout the entire, long hospital journey; he inspired myself and so many other health professional with his optimistic, ‘never give up’ charisma.”
Now, I feel very fortunate to have experienced this event, and I made a decision that I wanted to help as many people as could to also learn how to deal with hardship. And this is why I developed my ‘Will Never Give Up’ motivational seminars.
In this program you’ll learn how to:
But don’t take my word for it. Here’s what Mike Keating – Assistant Commissioner, Road Policing Command | Queensland Police Service had to say about my motivational seminars.
“I met Doug through his presentation. Doug’s commitment driven from his own tragic accident should be an inspiration to us all. Doug shows us that we can all make a difference.”
Don’t let life’s adversities come between you and your goals. Give yourself and your team the gift of my ‘Never Give Up’ motivational training, and learn the power of resilience and positive thinking from someone who really knows.
