From lost with low self esteem to a journey of self improvement and success

I always knew I’d be a shepherd. Not in the literal sense, but in the sense that I knew I would be a leader. One that people would seek direction from. Seek guidance, inspiration, and answers from.

Up until a few years ago, I was the furthest thing from a shepherd. I was the proverbial sheep. My whole life had been run by someone else’s dream, someone else’s goals. I would do things because I was expected to do so. That word, ‘expect,’ has become something sacred to me, along with another word: success.

Those words in combination came much later, though.

I was doing what I thought was expected of me, what I was supposed to do. As you’ll discover, growing up for me wasn’t exactly a walk in the park.

Don’t get me wrong, I had a wonderful, loving family and great friends, but I always felt like I was different. I was fascinated by the world outside of Galway, outside of Ireland, and always looked to places like America for inspiration.

In school, I always tried to go about my business and fit in. As you’ll find out, this didn’t always go as planned. I was bullied, big time, had horribly low self esteem and zero confidence to the point where I kept my voice hidden and locked up for fear of being ridiculed more.

I did what everyone else did, even if I didn’t agree with it. Other kids were skipping school, so I’d skip school, too.

Same could be said about alcohol and trouble. I always hung around with guys a little older than me. Guess I wanted to fit in with the cooler guys. I did what they did because it’s what I was supposed to do, right?

Same in college, I did what everyone else did, still hiding my true voice. Still following someone else’s path, not my own. College was fantastic and I thoroughly enjoyed my time there, had my degree in the bag, and now what? London. Investment Banking, here I come. This, too, was someone else’s dream, not mine.

The problem was that I somehow managed to sabotage myself each and every time. I thought I was just not hire-able and wasn’t suitable. And at some level, that was probably true. I’ve now to come to realise that I was purposely self-sabotaging because investment banking and finance wasn’t the path for me. It was something else entirely.

I was going through some major changes as all my work over the last few years seemed like it was for nothing. I was completely lost and didn’t know where I was going in life.

Was this normal? If it was, it sure as hell shouldn’t be.

Proinnsias (one of my friends) and I decided we’d both head off somewhere and get our heads straight.

This time I said to Proinnsias, “We’re going to do something that’s not normal, against the grain.” I was sick of dong what everyone else did.

It was time to do what I wanted.

“Where will we go?” he asked.

“Not Australia, not Canada, and not America. Everyone goes to those places.

I know, we’ll go to South America.

I don’t know anyone that’s ever gone there….”

That, as you’ll discover, was one of the best decisions of my life…
