This is a selection of the messages and feedback Shaun has received from clients and Keynote/Workshop participants.
Julian H. “I spent my younger years in the military and later became a successful investment banker working abroad. However, much of my life I have been in negativity mode and as a result felt generally unhappy, unfulfilled and angry. I genuinely believed happiness could be found from external sources by being fixated with money, success and working for prestigious multinational companies. However, after a recent stressful life event, I became even more disillusioned and withdrawn and began to question my life’s objectives and priorities.
Shaun was highly recommended by someone close to me as a potential mentor/ coach. I was very hesitant at first, but after our initial meeting, I knew Shaun had real-life experience and knowledge to help me. More importantly, as I am a typical alpha male and an ex-member of the Australian Defence Force, I needed someone who was physically and emotionally strong who would persistently challenge me.
Shaun developed a specific program for me and we worked together for a few months. I saw tremendous growth and improvements in my mental well-being and physical fitness, but more importantly, my emotional connectedness with my family, friends, and work colleagues was so much healthier. I finally acknowledged, with Shaun’s assistance, that the inner changes influenced happiness and not outside successes.
Shaun has experienced many tough challenges in his life, but that’s exactly why I sought his help. He is an attentive listener, tough but rational, solutions-driven and extremely pragmatic with a no-nonsense approach to happiness!”
Linda G. “I have worked with Shaun to break through old beliefs and stressors that were contributing to feelings of being stuck and general unhappiness. Shaun takes the time to truly listen, understand and guide you through positive change. Essentially the change is our doing but Shaun is a master at inspiring and exciting us into action. His straight-shooting manner is disarming and honest and he certainly does not buy into excuses and let you off the hook. An essential part of the growth I believe.
It is clear to see and feel that Shaun deeply cares for his clients, and through our time spent working together, I feel more connected to my strength, resilience and more importantly, I am enormously excited and driven to live the magnificent life I desire. I cannot recommend Shaun’s work and Shaun enough and this includes his podcast, The Strong Life Project which always serves to fire me up in a very good way. Thank you Shaun, I am deeply grateful that you are so driven and willing to serve others in the way you do.”
Tim S. “I would like to thank Shaun O’Gorman for the time and effort he has put into me in all aspects of my life. The changes in believing myself. The positive actions, dealing with negative emotions, and creating my life in a positive way has changed my life completely in every aspect, business, emotionally, family and most importantly myself.
During the process I had a major emotional event occur that I didn’t see coming. 6 weeks into the process with Shaun this event all came out and through Shaun’s process, ability and training he helped me through the process of dealing with it and saved 12 months of my life. If I wasn’t working with Shaun I would not have been able to deal with this situation fully and it would have impacted the rest my life in a negative way. I can’t recommend Shaun and his work highly enough.”
Mat T. “What I have received, benefited & learned from my time with Shaun is massive.
Shaun & I started off meeting to make sure we could work with each other, this meeting was a breath of fresh air for me as I had finally met somebody that I could speak openly about anything with & I knew that I was going to get an absolutely honest & straight to the point answer.
I have thrown a lot at Shaun from personal life to work life to everyday life. Shaun had NO issues relating to my situations, as a result, I had a lot to reflect on from our conversation which grew from the areas mentioned above.
I now, months on after our last official mentoring session, find myself going back subconsciously picking myself up on most, if not all the key points (Insecurities), we worked on over our time mentoring.
I personally lead a group managers, estimators & site installers in my workplace that I am now far more confident in leading due to Shaun opening my eyes to why I am actually in this role, I used to struggle to come to terms with being confident in my background, ability & how I was respected in my role to able to deliver information, feedback& advice to all of those employees until this was spelled out very clearly.
Shaun & I now still contact each other to discuss & make things are still moving in the right direction. Shaun’s honesty & direct approach is what focused me on what & why I was seeking this mentoring.
The whole experience has reflected through my work life & also through my personal life which has made a massive difference in both.”
Craig L. “I am a Military veteran and was struggling with PTSD and major depression, before working with Shaun I was on drugs and seeing a Psychiatrist for 8 years just so I could function.
Now I am drug-free and have created meaningful connections, I am able to fully appreciate and connect with my children and partner on a whole new level. Best thing I ever did for myself!
I have PTSD well and truly under control, and I am moving forward in my business and my life in a way I never thought was possible.
I really cannot recommend Shaun’s mentoring program enough.”
Nick D. “I found Shaun to have amazing insight and awareness in relation to how the world works. He was great at narrowing down issues and focusing on what was important and what needed to be addressed.
Anyone looking for no-nonsense advice and executive coaching should definitely get in touch with Shaun.”
Sally A. “Shaun is a refreshingly unique, left-of-centre character, who is totally up to something amazing in this world. Upon first meeting, Shaun completely understood my situation, but on the flip-side, he didn’t dwell on the detail. He helped me to move things forward in places I felt otherwise stuck. He showed me where I wasn’t helping myself, and in fact that I wasn’t stuck.
Whether the advice comes in the form of personal anecdote, relatable stories, or direct calling out of unhelpful behaviour – he has – hands down, been one of the most integral and pivotal advisors in my journey. The journey of mine was navigating the end of an abusive marriage, and ensuring my two beautiful children were minimally impacted – but you can insert ANY LIFE CHALLENGE here – and I know the influence of Shaun’s advice will have the same level of impact. I’ve never shied away from a challenge, but now I embrace it.
Shaun is the kind of person who lives his values and helps others to do the same. His infectious enthusiasm and energy are next-level – and single-handedly, he makes the world a better place.”
Lucy H. “I can honestly say that without Shaun my marriage would have ended, I would still be unhappy and my son would be struggling with his own mental health issues. We have all worked with Shaun over the last year and the results have been life-changing for all of us. His no-nonsense approach combined with practical tools has turned our lives around and I will be forever grateful for the impact he has had on us all.
As a shy, quiet, middle-aged female, I would never have thought that Shaun would be the person to work with. However, after seeing the results he achieved with both my husband and son I was keen to work with him myself. His sensitivity and genuine desire to help me overcome my challenges was more than I ever expected and I can’t recommend his mentoring program highly enough. Thank you, Shaun, from the bottom of my heart.”
Will H. “For the last few months Shaun has been helping my family and I overcome some individual barriers and problems which I had been struggling to overcome for years. Shaun and his awesome mentoring has enabled me to start a new and exciting chapter of my life which I can comfortably say I thought I would never experience. His knowledge and experience are exceptional and have really put me on the right path to have a happy fulfilling life and I cannot thank him enough for his hard work and dedication.
Thanks for everything you do mate. The way you have helped dad has been awesome and I’ve really benefited from it. Just seeing a guy like dad, and how he has changed, has really made me put everything into perspective. Much appreciated once again.”
Shane J. “I highly recommend Shaun O’Gorman and the Strong Life Project. He will challenge the way you think, change how you deal with everyday situations allowing you to become emotionally connected and more emotionally aware. Not only dealing with stress but to be more connected with your life, creating self-worth and learning to love yourself.
As Shaun would say “The World is your Oyster brother, go out and conquer it” After spending 6 weeks with Shaun he changed and challenged my way of thinking and I have learned to love me again! An amazing journey and I have much love for this man and all he does.”
Damien B. “When I first met Shaun, I was one fight loss away from quitting my fight career. As an MMA fighter, I had lost 4 fights in a row and had 10 wins and 8 losses from my professional career. Shaun helped me with my mindset around fighting and I not only won my next fight but went on to secure a UFC contract. I fought 6 times for the UFC. Now I run my own martial arts and fitness center, which I had always dreamed of but never thought was possible. When Shaun and I first worked together I told him my dream was to fight UFC and run my own gym, he absolutely helped me make that dream possible.
Shaun also helped me put my military career into perspective, including my deployment to Afghanistan where I was involved in combat. He helped me understand the PTSD I was diagnosed with was an injury as a result of my service. I have received support and treatment for my injuries because of this willingness to acknowledge my injuries from my service.
To say Shaun has helped me is an understatement, he showed me a totally different way of thinking and I have continued to develop this for the last 5 years. This has had a huge positive impact on my business, marriage, being a Dad and my life in general.
I would highly recommend Shaun to anyone who wants to make changes in their lives and achieve amazing outcomes.”
Luke P. “I reached out to Shaun at the end of 2018 after coming to the conclusion that I was struggling with just about everything that was going on in my life. My attitude was poor, I was angry at everyone and everything and realised I needed to be set straight. My light bulb moment was when I drove at the regular speed limit into a school zone and subsequently lost my license for 3 months.
I reached out to Shaun, knowing that anyone who has served in the Police tends to be a straight shooter. From the outset, it is clear he is not the sort of guy to wrap his arms around you and tell you everything is going to be Ok. That is not his style. He delivers a message that is powerful and on point. He tells you what you need to do in a way that not even your closest friends and family would do. Sometimes it may feel confronting, but its always delivered with your best interests in mind.
I have to say the impact on me of working with Shaun has been nothing but positive. My mind is clear and focussed, I am getting on with building an awesome business and life is great.
Bringing the right attitude to work, relationships and life, in general, is the single most important thing we can do as individuals. Thanks to Shaun, I am happy to say my attitude is exactly where I and those around me need it to be.”
Angela H. “Shaun is my guru. Through his 6-week mentoring program he changed my life in substantial ways. I can’t put my finger on any one thing – I don’t have enough fingers for that! However, there were a couple of major outcomes for me personally that have dramatically changed my daily operations – those are being calm and self-aware. This has helped me at work and in my personal life. I feel more confident when I have to challenge someone or something. I can’t recommend him highly enough.”
John L. “More often than not when seeking any form of consulting, coaching, personal development, it’s easy to make assumptions and predict the very typical process, a proverbial “pat on the back” of encouragement, “Be a better you” ultimately regurgitated from the latest social media motivational clip and finishing the session with hugs and hi-fives. I think it’s fair to say that I was always very critical, and still am, of anyone that claims to be a consultant let alone a “human behavior Consultant” however I cannot say that any of that was the case here.
Shaun’s NO BS delivery and approach is like getting run over by a truck of your own reality that I could never have prepared for. Everything is concise, no fluff and surprisingly real-life practical. After first interactions and subsequent further consultations, Shaun has turned out to be the ultimate man-shed of practical life tools. From saving my marriage, embarking on a new career, and much to the disappointment of my local plasterer, resolving my anger issues, the advice and guidance is sometimes confronting but always very real and impactful.
I honestly cannot recommend Shaun highly enough for what he does, if his personal story alone doesn’t qualify him enough, then take it from me, it will be a life-changing experience for you.”
CRITICAL STRESS WORKSHOPS
Shaun was recently the keynote speaker at my teams muster.
I have over 30 years of operational policing experience and have attended countless mandatory post-critical incident and station muster welfare officer presentations. While I’m sure they were always well-intended, I always felt they were something we had to endure.
Shauns presentation was the complete opposite. From the very beginning he captured and held the audiences attention throughout, I found all the information and advice he passed on to be very relevant and useful.
His passion and wealth of knowledge in this field is evident throughout the presentation and is clearly based on the experience he has had.
Hard-hitting, impactful, genuine, relevant, informative, and well delivered are all words I would use to describe Shaun’s information.
Since the presentation I now follow his podcast which I also enjoy immensely.
I would highly recommend Shaun and The Strong Life Project.
Ian Robinson. I enjoyed it that much that I attended two presentations. Well done to Shaun and his support team.
Anna Dwyer. “Hi Shaun, attended your workshop today and it was fantastic. Thank you so much for your insight, lessons learned & for working tirelessly to make our police world a better one. Sincere gratitude from Mark & I. Definitely got heaps out of it, thanks again 🙂 Have shared link and will be encouraging others to go along wherever they are in the state.“
Andrew Ayres. We caught Shaun’s presentation this morning. It is both raw and insightful, whilst being 1,000,000% relevant. Shaun O’Gorman is the perfect instrument of delivery here.
The incredible underlying message is that this superb man genuinely cares about cops and having done more than a few laps of both the operational and corporate sphere’s, allowing him to provide a no-holds-barred, straight between the eyes appraisal of what WE AS COPS NEED in order to extend our mental and physical well being.
GET TO THIS PRESENTATION and by that we mean GET ALL YOUR MATES as well… one word… Superb.
Steve Cook. Just attended this presentation. As a 30+ year copper I’ve done a few laps around the block. Get off your arse and have a listen to this – it WILL help you and give you strategies to cope. If you are an old fart like me this advice is overdue and if you are just starting out – you WILL need this. Get on the front foot. Soggy is a champion.
Ben Mac. Attended Shaun O’Gorman’s workshop today. In short, if you’re a colleague and you don’t make the time to attend one of the workshops, you’ll be poorer for not learning from his experiences.
In simpler terms, you’d be a dickhead not to attend.
Damien Ahearn. To all my work colleagues in Townsville, I urge you to attend this workshop. I’m good mates with Shaun. He’s passionate about helping others and after reading his book I can’t stress how beneficial this workshop will be to you and your families.
Phil Notaro. I attended this session today to listen to a good friend in Shaun O’Gorman. I was moved by his honesty and emotion; and his story, which, despite knowing him for over 25 years, I had never fully heard, or understood. Many things he spoke about I could relate to and recognise in my own ‘story’. I believe this workshop should be compulsory for every member. It’s an important message. It’s time we broke down the barriers, discarded any stigma about PTSD, and openly talk to each other, recognise the signs and look after your mental health before you become mentally injured. Great work SOG. Keep it up mate.
Jason Barrett. Team, if you are a current/former Police member or a family member of one please see attached dates for mental health presentations from Shaun O’Gorman around Qld. Honest discussions from someone who has been on the front lines of policing and battled his own demons and survived. Worthwhile. Please also support the ‘Strong Life Project’ podcast and ‘My Dark Companion’ book.
I was in the presentation you did this morning at xxxx (the one with a bad poker face sitting in the middle) and had to run out a few minutes before the end as we had a job, so wasn’t able to give the feedback.
Just wanted to let you know as well that it’s rare that 2 hours into any kind of presentation that we go to as police that I’m still engaged and not totally bored, and in yours that time flew by! So just letting you know that you are a very engaging presenter and really easy to relate to, and what you presented was very applicable and was a really relevant and well-structured presentation. In fact, I had to stop myself tearing up at times as some of the stuff hit too close to home, and so it was probably good I had to leave and couldn’t personally introduce myself as I would have been at risk of crying, and I hate crying.
Without going into too much detail I am married to a police officer and we are separated and have been for 8 months. We have a daughter who I’m the primary carer for, and I work part-time so am a working single mum which is tough, to say the least. I’ve also had to move house, change roles and sections, as well as deal with the usual cr@p at work as well as home. I believe that the job has changed both of us, for the worse in some aspects, and particularly for him, so it was really difficult to listen to how the job can so strongly affect family and relationships as I know that very well first hand.
Anyway, just wanted to let you know that I found your presentation really intriguing and helpful, and I’m going to focus more on my mental and physical health. I’m really lucky to have friends like xxxx because last night she was very much like how you were saying we all should be i.e. asking numerous times how someone is until you get an accurate response, as that’s exactly what she did to me last night as I’m the exact person who normally just goes ‘yep I’m fine’ when I’m really not.
Thanks so much
Just a quick note to thank you for the Critical Stress Training Workshop you delivered last week at HQ.
Your candidness was very refreshing and greatly appreciated.
I don’t think we can hear your story enough.
So… thank you…
My name is XXXX, I’m from XXXX and attended the critical stress lecture you delivered here at the academy rec club about 18 months ago. Just thought I would drop you a line and let you know that your lecture literally changed my life! I was a very angry, isolated and closed off person and thought that was normal. Your lecture opened my eyes and opened a whole new world for me. I have grown significantly over the last 18months as a result.
From the bottom of my heart mate, I thank you for delivering that lecture, it’s a very courageous and brave thing your doing. Have spoken with a number of the guys here who have had similar experiences
Thank you mate
Just wanted to let you know that I thought your presentation at our detective’s conference in xxxx the other day was great. You were very honest and open which I think we all appreciated. We can also relate to a number of things / situations that you spoke about.
I have been in the job for about 17 years and am still going strong (luckily) and loving everyday.
I have printed out your quote ‘Emptying your ‘bucket’ constantly is the key’ and placed on our fridge to remind everyone of this fact.
I have only positive feedback for you and pure respect for what you are doing.
I thought your lecture was very powerful and I know for a fact that one Det. Sgt in the CIB did speak to one of his team members after the conference. So even though you may have seen a lot of faces checking out the carpet and its patterning I do know that a lot were taking in what you were saying. Some probably even thinking ‘shit I can associate with what he’s saying’.
Mental Health, Stress, PTSD are such difficult topics to raise, as the fear is still very much that you will lose your job or be moved into an admin job down a dark hallway. However with good people on board such as Mr Paul CASEY and our new HSO’s here we’ve got a good chance of making some change. I think the more we talk about it the more we’ll dismiss those terrible antiquated thoughts around not disclosing when were struggling.
So keep on talking, spreading the good word.
Have a wonderful and safe Christmas.
Hey SOG, a huge thanks from me for what you’ve done and provided via the Critical Stress Seminars. Your (immense) work has answered a lot of questions that for many years bubbled away in the dark recesses of
my mind. I especially appreciated your forthright and brutal honesty
about your own journey and then how you worked on overcoming your
demons to be in the place you are today. You’re certainly a credit to
the broader O’Gorman legacy. Hope to catch up soon Brother,
Just wanted to say thanks again for your talk yesterday, I enjoyed it.
Your talk was very much on par with your online course, but it was nice to hear it in person.
I came home and told the missus about it and how I plan on implementing changes so I can hopefully be a better husband and father.
Hi Shaun, just wanted to say that I was at your talk to police at Surfers Paradise. I thought your presentation was wonderful and your honesty so refreshing.
You really captured a tough audience and you may not have been able to notice but every single person in the room was held captivated from beginning to end. I also thought your slides were
excellent and the info you gave spot on.
So good for you for such an authentic, engaging and brace lived experience presentation and I will be encouraging all police and staff members that I come across to come along and have a listen to you as you travel the state. Congrats!!
Private message. Police Psychologist
Hey mate its Matt, Man the talk today really helped and I really appreciate the time you spent to talk to me. (Member who is recently dealing with PTSD after a shooting incident)
Hey Shaun. I was in the conference last week at the dog squad. Absolutely brilliant mate. Love your work. Just got your book from iTunes to read on holidays in Thailand. 💪💪💪
Hi! I was at the presentation in xxxxxx yesterday but I had to rush off to an appointment. I didn’t get a chance to fill out the feedback form so I just wanted to send you through some. First of all I’d like to thank you for being prepared to share your story.
I think the information contained in the presentation will definitely help others to identify traits or behaviours in themselves. Overall, I think the presentation was awesome and I think it should be compulsory training for everyone in the job.
It was also nice to see and hear that the person who is in charge of the ‘Our people matter’ does actually give a shit. I think one of the biggest problems we have with the stigma surrounding mental health, harassment complaints etc is with our direct peers. The moment someone puts their hand up and people know, they are further isolated.
Anyway, great presentation, and I fully believe it has the potential to change and save lives. It needs to be compulsory.
Hi Shaun. I attended today at xxxx. I have been on rehab for 12 months after attempting suicide 18 months ago. I was in uniform the day I tried. Spent weeks in hospital and have ongoing psychiatric and psychologist appointments. And medication to keep me balanced. Anyway I learnt things from you today to make my life stronger. What you are doing is so important. Don’t forget to look after yourself whilst helping others. Thank you.
Shaun really enjoyed your presentation this morning at xxxx. Keep up the great work mate for this worthwhile cause. All the best in your future endeavours.
Shaun I was at your presentation today and just wanted to thank you for a fantastic talk. This was a real light bulb moment for me.
I am 11 years in the job with the past 4 being in Scenes of Crime. Over the last 2 years I think I have started going down hill. Cranky, emotional, distant and like you said today if I died in the job then so be it. I’m the guy in the office that seems to have his shit together, the funny guy, the go to guy. This is so far from the truth. I think this has made it difficult to talk to my people.
I really got a lot out your presentation today and haven’t stop telling my wonderful wife. I am absolutely committed to changing my mind set.
Thank you for the add. I wanted to thank you also for the presentation out here in xxx this week. I had to leave straight away & missed the opportunity to speak with you. Great presentation & I took a lot away from it.
I attended one of your seminars for the QPS a few days back in xxxxx. Since then I have listened to about twenty of your podcasts and have subscribed to your website.
Everything you said really resonated with me.
Sometimes I get so focused on continuing as normal and being the best I can be at work, the best mother and the best support for my husband. I forget to be the best me. You have reminded me of what I need to do and given me hope that my husband can work through his depression and PTSD.
Thank you again, I look forward to your future podcasts.
Honesty, integrity and makes me reflect every episode.☆☆☆☆☆
I’ve been listening to these podcasts for the last year. Shaun is brilliant, his podcasts are an absolute must listen if you want to grow as a person period!! Thanks Shaun, keep it up and stay well 👍🏻
Hi from Canada
I know you are a really busy guy so I don’t need a response but I did just want to say thanks for all you do! I’ve only recently started listening to your podcasts but they deliver tons of value, I look forward to them during my fitness, and you push me to do my best!
You make some things sound simple and then when I stop to think about it, they are! Keep up the great work my friend! Thank you)
Hey there. My names Wayne. Been listening for about the last thirty episodes or so. Great work man!
I’ve got just under 12 yrs service in the force over in Canada. I’ve been dealing with PTSD for a while now and only recently started to accept it and be more “out” with it. Ugh.
Anyway, I started a podcast a few months back and I’ve been wanting to ask you about what you’ve done since retiring? Your episodes kick me in the gut sometimes haha and it seems obvious that you’ve been working on this for some time now.
I came across your podcast a few months ago by chance. I can’t remember exactly which podcast I was listening to at the time about suicide and depression and you were a guest on that particular show. Anyway I know your podcast focuses particularly on police officers but I thought I needed to reach out and explain how you have helped me. I am not a police officer but was unfortunate enough to go through an extremely traumatic event that resulted in somebody being shot and me fleeing for my life. This has left me suffering from flashbacks, daily suicidal thoughts, and terrible nightmares which got to the point of being quite debilitating.
I was in an extremely dark place drinking and taking prescription medication everyday to numb the pain and to try forget the memories. Slowly the drinking and prescription drug use increased and got out of control. I battled suicidal thoughts everyday and the future seemed hopeless. I landed up in hospital on two occasions because of prescription drug and alcohol overdoses which nearly resulted in me losing my life. During this time I had subscribed to your podcast but fell behind on them because of this. I was sitting one day and thinking of how I was going to distract myself in order to stop myself from doing something stupid again and start drinking and go through the entire process of self destruction once again. It was the podcast suicide is never the answer (I think that’s the title of it) that was my turning point. I listened to a few that day and slowly the thoughts disappeared for the first time in ages.
I know you probably hear this everyday and even though I am not a police officer your positivity and your podcast I feel has saved my life. I decided that day that I was at rock bottom and my family and friends were slowing pulling away and I realised I’m going to end up alone and then finally dead. I gave up drinking and it has only been 35 days since my last drink but I am working hard everyday to stay sober and move forward. I listened to your podcast with 180 nutrition and I am eating better and waking up 5.30am to go the gym and work out 5 days a week. I still have my tough days and struggle badly with nightmares, flashbacks and suicidal thoughts but I am taking it one day at a time and I am receiving therapy for this. But to be honest I am so fortunate to have come across your podcast as it has really helped me and picks me up when I feel I’m having a tough day.
Apologies for the long-winded email but I felt it was necessary to reach out and let you know that you are making a difference in people lives and thank you for taking the time every day to put out your podcast. I have recently purchased your book and making my way through it, so thanks for getting your story out I believe it will be helping so many people.
Love your work! A friend put me onto your podcasts which at first (two weeks ago) I found the swearing confronting (at 61, you’d think I’d know how to get over that quickly by now🤦♀️). I’m resonating really well with many of your messages and it is helping me. I have just put my 70 y.o. husband into aged care after his 5th stroke. Currently going through the grief process, who’s got my back, which if my 4 children do I lean on to help make decisions, living on my own, work/life balance, being isolated from my grandchildren due to Covid, financial confusion, a whole new raft of things! Not asking anything of you, just letting you know you are helping me feel like “I got this”.Have a wonderful day. Sincerely
It has been hard for me to hold myself back from harassing you with compliments and words of thanks and gratitude after I listen to each of your podcasts 🙂
You are the daily kick in the backside that I need and have needed for so long .
Shaun, your posts are so good. I don’t just stop and listen but I take time and absorb your messages.
Being the best version of you is such a positive motto. I just wanted to say thank you for your posts, I may be thousands of miles away stuck here in UK (long story ) but honestly, I look forward to seeing your posts all the time.
Not sure if I can order your book internationally but I’m sure going to try. Your words do great thing so this is just a little appreciation feedback for you 😊
Good Morning Shaun,
We met when I preached you following the presentation you gave at Invictus Games last week.
I’m the Ex Brit cop, Former Royal Marine Commando who your story touched a nerve with.
I’m just dropping you a line to say, “thank you”, for taking the time to listen to me. As you know, taking that step and opening up to a stranger can leave you feeling very vulnerable. I don’t know what it was that made me approach you, I think our personal issues following on from incidents that affected us in a similar way gave me a feeling of, “shit this guy is gonna get it”, where so many don’t!
I left the event feeling more positive about the future, and if that so all I get from it, I’ll take it.
So, again, many thanks.
All the very best my friend
Hey Sog, u just popped up on my feed as people I might know. Started following you and watched a few of your posts. I really enjoyed what you had to say. I know how soul-destroying policing can be. It’s refreshing to see someone come out on the other side and find something they are so passionate about. Good on ya.
I am going through one of the toughest events of my life . Thanks for your messages for a positive life I look at now each day . They help x
Hi, just a few words: thank you for your work! 🙏 This is what this world needs today.
Have been watching some of your videos I haven’t quite grasped what you have been through but obviously you have come a long way , you have a fantastic mindset which is inspirational , love that you are an honest guy who is promoting positivity and perseverance, which so many people need
You’re posts are absolutely brilliant, every morning I watch you videos and it makes me motivated to reach my goals.
Thanks again mate!! I’m in a great place physically, mentally, and emotionally at the moment but I’m a huge fan of what you’re doing…
You’re doing what should’ve been addressed a long time ago
