I failed……BIG TIME

I’ve failed a bunch of times, so many times…..

Anyone who says they haven’t are lying

I’ve failed on a fitness journey,

I’ve failed businesses

My first attempt on level 3 PT course

I failed my first attempt on my driving theory test

I’ve failed in the boxing ring


One of my biggest failures is this

As most of you know I used to be on the British Military,

I joined up when I’d just turned 18 years old and I served with the Royal Green

Jackets/The Rifles

Here’s the thing though

I got into loads of trouble, I mean loads

I was getting mixed up in behaviour that is just not acceptable in the Military…..

I got a court martial, but that’s not why I got discharged

Here’s the big failure……

I failed a CDT

A CDT is a compulsory dr*g test

Which tests for recreational dr*gs,

Dr*gs are a MASSIVE no no in the military

And I just didn’t think these rules applied to me,

So on a weekend when back home, at a pub in Chislehurst I took some coc*ine

Of course I deserved to be discharged,

But I was devastated….joining the military is all I ever wanted to do…..

I wanted to experience more of what military life had to offer and my career ended before it had really gotten started…...

Today though, I’m so grateful that things happened the way they did, as this gave me the big realisation that I needed to start taking life seriously,

So I could level up and be more responsible

I know it’s a cliche……but cliches are cliches for a reason…..

Failure is only a failure if you don’t learn from it,

Fortunately I don’t get involved in that type of behaviour anymore

And when I decided to move on from that type of behaviour my world quite literally opened up…….

What behaviour is holding you back from being the best version of you?


Drop me a reply and let me know

To you out there who might be going through a failure right now,

I guarantee it you’ll look back on this one day and you’ll see it differently

And you may even see what lessons you needed to learn to take you to the next level in life 🫡

See you in the park
