I’m a proud man, husband and father!
Before I found my way,
my life was taken up with having what I thought to be fun!
My only concern was having enough money to fund the ‘fun’.
All my decisions early on were about chasing a job that
could pay me enough to do the things that I wanted to do.
Boys holidays, weekend benders (every week), expensive clothes,
everything was about me,
selfish to the end.
I had no-one else to consider.
Every week started with the same awful Monday blues.
Broken sleeps and sweats and an awful temper
until at least Wednesday morning.
The rest of the week spent looking to the weekend
where alcohol, junk food & hangover was the main and only focus.
But when you are honest with yourself it’s easy to see that
alcohol is a sedation, an escape from the reality of the day to day
and the obvious depression that a life as empty as this would hold.
When I look at it now I’m saddened that
all the many, many nights of alcohol fuelled antics
blend into one vague memory.
I’m sickened by the amount of money wasted on expensive drinks
taxis and take away junk food
and that one single vague memory…
It took a big wake up call from a fat bloater,
a lot of soul searching,
a strong family support and hard work
to find the recipe to happiness.
Now, showing my boys how to grow into gentlemen,
and my girl to be a confident lady,
is my number 1 and only priority.
Everything else in life is just noise
all the worries, stresses, arguments and struggles
that life may throw my way
are all superseded by this…
My lesson for them is very simple,
All I need to teach them is how to understand and
achieve the following,
BUT how to achieve and follow it each and every day…
Believe in yourself,
show respect to all,
tell the truth,
stand up to welcome a friend,
No matter what they do in life,
no matter what job they choose,
no matter how much ‘fun’ they chase,
no matter the person they choose to
leave me for ( sob, sob… )
if they make sure to include these each and every day
from now until their final day,
they will lead a life of happiness, power and wealth!
I will have done my job!
These are the exact principles I built the Tough Love Project on
and the reason the results are so impressive!
It is a place where men who are just like me come to build strength,
show respect, laugh, naked high 5 (only on Thursdays),
sing, grunt, roar and sweat.
Where they will always see a friend,
and it is to each other they are accountable…

P.S. You could just continue telling yourself bullshit stories like you
don’t have the time or the money but make sure to post it on Facebook
whilst watching the football
or write it on the back of your 2nd take away of the week…
