As a child I lived in North London, and from the age of 13 became a young offender. This soon changed once I got into cycling, helping me to get out of London and out of further trouble.
A couple of years later I became interested in cycle racing, where I learnt about winning, dreaming, goal setting, planning and discipline. I did quite well, and even tried to become a professional in France. I later decided that cycle racing as a career was not for me, but I had learnt several valuable lessons about dreaming, about winning, planning, goal setting and discipline. Very helpful for success in life.
I came home and after a couple of years November 20th 1967 I landed a job selling life assurance, at first it was terrible. Two years later I meet a young lady, Gina, and got married on the 12th June 1970. Our son James came along late 72. Then I knew that I had to make more sales, we were broke. A break came in October 73. I went to a sales conference at the Festival Hall London. At this conference three speakers inspired me, two American and one Canadian. They spoke very fondly of an annual meeting they attended every year of an organisation called The Million Dollar Round Table. To become a member you have to make sales of a million dollars’ worth of life assurance in a single year. January to December. They got my attention.
To get started I really had to get motivated. I had to succeed or I was out of work. I purchased a Personal Development course, mainly linked to goal setting. I worked out my goals for 1974 and I was raring to go 1st January. I worked like a trojan all year, I was hardly home, only to eat and sleep, but I succeeded I did the million, I was up with the leaders in my company. The funny thing was I did not learn anything new why? Because the course covered the same areas as the techniques I learnt at cycle racing, goal setting, planning. dreaming about success and achieving your goals plus I learnt a lot more and, I was out of debt.
Qualifing as a member of the Million Dollar Round Table in 1974 enabled me to go to the annual conference in June ‘75, which was in San Francisco. At this conference and many others I attended over 30 years, I learnt a lot about being a Whole person. The main theme that goes through The Million Dollar Round Table is The Whole Person Concept. This concept along with one word that the first speaker on Monday morning asked the whole audience to give ourselves the best definition of the word LOVE. I became very emotional because I could not define it, he then gave us his definition. His answer was love is "desiring the best for another." This definition and The Whole person concept changed my life for ever.
The Whole Person Concept teaches that if you want to be better at anything, first become a better person, a whole person a total person. Living a balanced life. That was life changing for me, so I embraced the whole person concept and it still motivates me today, but I changed it and developed it to The Whole Person Approach to Life.
When I found the trappings of sales success, I had become quite successful but, Hi Ho no one was home. I was not satisfied, something was missing from my life. I started to embrace better life management skills like a major factor to how our lives turn out is how well we manage the life we have been given. I became a better manager of my life and over a period of time I found that I need to have a life driven by a purpose. Two books, The Purpose Driven Life and Living The Life You Were Meant To Live, changed my life for ever, eventually leading me to finding that there is a key to life. The Key To Life. Become A winner in The Game of Life, through The Whole Person Approach is what I now share with others. The Whole Person Approach helps people to create a balanced life. My life now has meaning and purpose, I found contentment, fulfilment a life of significance and above all, deep inner peace and hope. I am living the life I was born to live.
