For those of you who are new to following my journey. I love love love personal development.
Last year I did the best personal development courses in my life, The Bridge experience, then the Extreme Leadership shortly after. Both were led by the incredible Alexi Panos and Preston Smiles. Honestly, if you ever get the opportunity, do them. THEY ARE LIFE CHANGING.
One of the activities without giving too much away, we ultimately were told we won't make it out alive and had 2 minutes to write a letter to someone that meant the world to us.
I, of course, chose my mum. She has had the most significant impact on my life. She has been there when I have had my greatest moments and held space for me when I was back to zero and in the dumps.
Here is the letter I frantically wrote in my two minutes.
I want you to know how much I love you.
I am so grateful to you for supporting me on my crazy adventures and I know how worried you have been.
However, it's important that you know by giving me this freedom I have had such an incredible journey.
You have been there to support me and have been my number 1 fan.
It is important to me NOW you live for you. Why I say this is there is a chance I won't be coming back.
I have lived though mum. Because of your upbringing, I have got to do something most people never do and that is LIVE LIFE TO MY FULLEST.
Now it's your turn, I don't want you to hold back, celebrate my life and my biggest gift you could give me is enjoy yours.
Love you always, Nicholas xo
Later I received this letter back with a message from Preston and Alexi saying, Nicholas, we choose you.
A big lesson from this course was how much I never really chose me I would always sacrifice myself for the greater good. Now I have learnt that I am worthy of all my dreams and aspirations and I am a powerful manifester.
My mum always sacrificed herself to support me in achieving my dreams however now its time for you to shine, Mumma. I've got this, of course, you can still be a raving fan of mine but from now on always choose you before me. This will make me the happiest son in the world.
I have already watched you shine bright but also know you have only shown the world a glimmer of who you really are.
This is your year mum and so is every other year moving forward and I for one am excited to witness the phoenix rising and to have such a powerful ally on my side.
