With humour, courage and a truckload of transparency, this conversation with Martin Gillespie brought us all to a halt: as he faced his darkest hour and came through the unimaginable.
This led to his inner drive to live with purpose and passion and only do the things that bring him deep meaning, and it totally transformed his life.
His story is one that shows us how we can turn our lives around when we really want to, and how we are uniquely gifted to bring the world something special.
Here’s a summary of what we discussed:
4:45 - where his journey began
11:30 - when the wheels began to fall off
13:45 - the diagnosis
22:35 - the change in direction
42:51 - what does 6 stars mean
49:49 - the power of our mind and our habits
and much more…
