“Before been diagnosed with Terminal Cancer, I had just overcome and came back from years of adversity and knock backs that life had dealt me.
Back in November 2007, my ex wife had left me for another man and took my daughter . . . I was so done and warn out, that I got diagnosed with depression over a period of time and even tried to commit suicide to end the pain and suffering from having no family, losing my business, money and self esteem.
For the grace of God, I didn’t die. . . . . And whilst I was in hospital (March, 2008) recovering, a friend of mine drop off a book called “Battlefields of the Mind” . . . I read it in 2 days and I realised that everything I had gone through and experienced, my body and mind “reacted” to those circumstances and hence why I was feeling depressed, down, weak, no confidence etc etc. Because I went to that dark place . . . .
I decided that day, I would take control of my life again, by setting goals and writing down my dreams and changing my mindset towards my circumstances !!
In short, I came back bigger and better and rose above my adversity over the years . . . . !!!!!
I thought everything was back on track with business, personal and my financial situation . . . . UNTIL, on the 16th July, 2014 life dealt me another blow when I was diagnosed with “Terminal Cancer”
It was diagnosed with “Multiple Myeloma” a form of blood cancer that eats away at your bone marrow and bones !!
I had felt lower back pain (like most people do) over a few months, but thinking it was just a soccer injury from the past . . . . . . But when diagnosed, it had caused a hole in my bottom spine, ate away my at my pelvis and my upper two bones in my legs. The news was BAD, I was told it had spread to 90% of my body, I may never walk again and I had a period of time to live !!
NOT GOOD NEWS AT THE TIME . . . .
I remember looking at the cancer specialist just after he told me and I replied back and said “I APPRECIATE WHAT YOU HAVE JUST TOLD ME, BUT DOCTOR, YOU DON’T REALISE HOW STRONG THE MIND AND BODY IS AND I WILL BEAT THIS WITH MY MINDSET AND THE POWER OF POSITIVE THINKING . . . IF SOMEONE HAS A PURPOSE TO LIVE, THEN NOTHING CAN BE IMPOSSIBLE TO OVERCOME”
In short, I ended up staying in hospital for 4 weeks, but after 15 days, I started to walk with a walker . . . In September the 12th, I got up and started to walk without a walker, I now walk normal, I can power walk & jog, all without an operation which they suggested by putting two steel rods in my upper legs JUST TO START TO WALK AND WITH REHAB OF 12 MONTHS !! I never needed that . . . I did it purely on visualisation, determination and thinking positive at all times.
I am also glad to tell you, that as of December, 2014 . . . My blood results shows that my body is now Completely Cancer Free !! The doctors and nurses were amazed as the diagnoses that I received back in July and to December, how I beat the cancer.
I now share my true story to others at meetings & seminars and inspire them, that NO MATTER what you are faced with in life, an illness, depression, financial pressure, divorce, suicide etc etc, YOU can rise above it all, beat the enemy and overcome what ever mountain you are currently facing. This can ALL be achieved by just changing your mindset and start to visualise what you want and stop thinking about what it is NOW !! The Power of Positive Thinking works . . . BUT you need to believe and have faith in your ability to do so (I proved that).
**** Our sub conscious mind is 30,000 times more powerful than our conscious mind !!! Just think about that for a minute . . . I did when I researched about the power of positive thinking and the law of attraction. Our mind can and will conquer (KNQR) anything we tell it and believe we can !!!
P.S. It’s not what circumstances we are facing in our lives that determines us, but how we respond not react to circumstances that gets us through to the end and win”
