Shape your fate is a project I have designed to support people in getting what it is that they want out of life, showing them that, regardless of decisions that they might have made in the past, it is never too late to change and never too late to reach out and achieve their dreams. It just takes a little time, commitment and goal setting. Coming from a very colourful past, getting caught up with the wrong crowd, making some bad choices and getting involved in crime and drug abuse, I know how tough life can be. My choice was to change and to reshape my life. I want to show other people, before it's too late, that they too can make these positive changes to their lives and achieve the things that they want to. It was down to me to choose between 2 roads, the road that I had previously spent many years going down, the same road that I had known all this time, or I could choose the other road, a road that I knew nothing about and knew not where it would lead to. If you keep doing what you've always done, nothing will change. In turn, I chose the new road and it took me to places I could have only dreamed of going before. I cleaned up my act and achieved success in several areas of my life. I started regularly working and have done so ever since this turning point in my life, I became a professional wrestler and got to travel all over the UK, Ireland and Europe doing this, I started bands and got my music published on ITunes and played on the radio as far afield as Australia, I trained to become a Rescue scuba diver and have dived all over the UK and Europe, I even managed to get myself in to a position where I could afford to buy a brand new Harley Davidson. Not bad for a down and out kid with substance misuse issues no qualifications right? I have designed several training modules focussing on personal success, self belief and change. These modules will be delivered for FREE in training environments, to training consortiums, schools, colleges and any other facilities that feel they may benefit from the training. The objective of these training modules is to show the trainees that if I can do it, they can do it. Nothing is out of reach, as long as we reach for it in the right ways with the right tools. My professional background is in delivering training in First Aid, Goals motivational training and employability as well as working as a Support Worker for homelessness. I am looking to take my knowledge from my professional background, as well as my life experience and show people that they too can make positive changes in their lives and gain personal success if they put in the effort, set some goals and start reaching out to create the future they want to achieve. The funds raised will pay for travel, venue costs and training materials. Everybody deserves a chance to swing things around and make a better life for themselves. I'm just looking to steer them in the right direction.
