As a young man, I was always striving for success. I believed that status and money were the magic keys that would unlock a life free from problems. I was convinced that once I achieved these, everything else would fall into place.
When I moved to France to play rugby, I had achieved a significant dream. But even as I stood on the rugby field, basking in the glory of my achievement, I realised that my challenges - especially those related to my mental health and relationships - were still very much present.
This was a pivotal moment for me. I began to understand that success wasn't just about wealth and status. It was about being healthy, both physically and mentally. It was about having meaningful relationships. And it was about being financially secure, yes, but not at the expense of the other two.
I started exploring ways to maximise life, breaking it down into three main areas: Health, Wealth, and Relationships. I realised that these were the three pillars that a successful man's life was built on. And if one pillar was weak, the entire structure was in danger of collapsing.
Health: As men, we often neglect our health, both physical and mental. We push ourselves to the limit, working long hours and taking on immense pressure. But this can lead to burnout, stress, and other health issues. It's crucial to maintain a healthy work-life balance and to take care of our physical and mental health.
Wealth: Financial success is important, but it's not the be-all and end-all. It's about making smart financial decisions, managing risks, and ensuring consistent business growth. But it's also about understanding that wealth is a means to an end, not an end in itself.
Relationships: Personal and professional relationships are the backbone of a fulfilling life. But maintaining these relationships while juggling the demands of a business or a high-pressure job can be challenging. It's important to invest time and effort in building and maintaining these relationships.
Today, I use these insights to help other successful men navigate their challenges. Through the Strong Men Of Value Academy, I provide the tools and guidance needed to strengthen these three pillars and to build a life of success and fulfilment.
As the great Jim Rohn once said,
"Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day."
