You CAN change…
…if you want to
Was me 3 years ago to the day
It’s not secret I have had a long running issue with the drink that – I’m proud to say – I’m 11 months (a year I will be behind proud!) sober
I used it to mast a lot of self worth…
And self hatred….
Since I was in my teens
And I was fucking good at hiding it as well! I could nail a bottle of vodka a day; and still run multiple businesses, have a life, go to the gym – proper functional alcoholic lol
But ultimately it was going to bring me down
It nearly did
I almost lost everything
See, when you are ‘normal’ (well as normal as I can be lol), and you don’t think you are going to amount to much – but you keep fucking trying and one day
Suddenly you’re a thing
It messes with your head
I never expected to have ANY of this
I don’t feel ‘special’
I’m still the same Dan I was since I was a kid
People I’ve known since the start of this ‘online thing’ are surprised I’m still ‘me’ if that makes any sense
I share this with you today because many of you will think you aren’t worthy of X or Y
And – quite frankly – that’s bullshit
If vapid celebrities, compete fraudulent fucksticks and utter cock wombles with staged photos, lambos and models can make a shit tonne of cash?
Why the fuck can’t you?
And that’s the thing
IF you believe you can and IF you put the work in
In a shit place right now?
YOU CAN FUCKING CHANGE
You know what did it for me?
Which – you have as many people who rely on you as I do?
I didn’t want to appear weak
I didn’t want to let people down
I didn’t want to worry people
But that ^^^ ?
Was all in my fucking head
When I finally asked those close to me for a hand – it was like a fucking special forces team swung into action
From my family, team, mentor, friends – you name it – they picked me up…
Dusted me off…
Smacked me around the head…
Then put white arm around mind and said ‘let’s share the load for a bit’
And the rest is history
Without those people (and you know who you are I’m not going to tag you – ya know I love ya more than anything) I don’t know where I would be today
You NEED people around you who give a shit
You NEED to be with people who will help you when you can’t help yourself
You NEED people who don’t judge and just want the best for you
Are worth their weight in gold
In this group?
1000’s of them
The amount of times I have seen complete strangers swing into action in this group for someone in need
And if you need a more focused, more caring, more giving version of this group?
That’s what ‘Espresso With Dan’ is, And what it’s all about
We are shutting up shop tomorrow night – and I’m conscious it’s not for everyone for a variety of reasons
But if you could do with a bit more support in life and in business right now?
You’re welcome to join us:
And if not? Please – I implore you understand this; you can be, five or take, anyone you want to be
Just don’t try do it alone, OK?
PS ayes I do have a Big assed hairy chest( I used to care what proper thought of me looking the way I do
Shaved it off for years
Now I don’t give a fuck and love WHO and WHAT I am
^^^ I couldn’t say that a few years back
Amazing how things can change eh?
