Time for a change

Updated: Apr 25, 2019

By David Gillman


Do you hold your breath, waiting for a change? Does disappointment or frustration leave you feeling hopeless or stuck in the same routine as you do what’s necessary to survive, to keep your home in order, to eat, sleep and work?

Perhaps the only thing you have to look forward to at the end of the week is a few hours on a Friday night to sit in front of the TV, beer or hot beverage in hand, hoping something good is on.

And as you sit there hoping your weekend will never end, you hope it will be enough to recharge your batteries and get ready to do it all over again next week.

You might hear the voice of discontent telling you to do something different. To look for a new job, plan a holiday you always wanted to go on, but you dismiss it and things stay as they are - until one day you snap!

Maybe it’s a utility bill you forgot to budget for, or you’ve been to one too many weddings where you’re sitting alone, feeling sorry for yourself - wishing you could dance with the person who’s caught your eye on the dancefloor.

Feelings of frustration and loneliness can be a good opportunity to pause and ask ourselves WHY. How do I know this? From personal experience.

I had a tough time coping at school. I felt I was an outcast, and I was treated as one. I went through the motions, day after day, all the time wishing for release.

Not much changed when I started work. Show up. Meet deadlines. Go home. Watch TV. Day after week after month after year.

I became frustrated, saw my life passing me by. I was 30 kilograms overweight, no girlfriend, haunted by my memories of my past. So I asked myself a question.

"What happiness could I find if I reversed my situation?"

Who could I ask for help? By answering these questions I learned what action I needed to take to achieve success. I knew I needed a coach. The coaches I enlisted took different forms. Some were life coaches, others were dancesport coaches, property and business coaches.

Through a combination of personal research and enlisting the right coaches, I lost 30kg in 12 months. I became a blood donor, making over 100 donations and receiving a donor medal for my efforts. I became a 5-time National Dancesport Champion. I helped my family business grow and survive some difficult times, and I became a dancesport coach, leading my students to success in medal exams and competitions.

Now I want to share my experience with you to help YOU achieve success.
