OCCUPATION: University Student
WHERE DO YOU LIFE: Bristol, England
WHAT PROBLEM WERE YOU TRYING TO SOLVE:
Life was really lacking in anything real. Every day was the same and I just couldn’t get motivated to feel like studying, so I wasted my life playing computer games as often as I could. It was quite addictive but it still left me feeling empty inside. Like most people I had grand dreams but failed to feel motivated to do much about it.
HOW WAS THE PROBLEM AFFECTING YOU:
Life felt like a hamster wheel, you know, like in the movie groundhog day. I’d go round and round, day after day, and nothing ever changed. It was demoralising. Here I was a teenager and my life had already become dull and boring. Was this all there is to life? OMG there had to be more, but I didn’t feel motivated to do anything about it.
WHAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED IF YOU HAD NOT CHOSEN TO WORK WITH ROSS:
Well I didn’t work with him exactly, I mean not in a paid way. We’d known each other for some time, he used to play computer games with us a few years back but he’d discovered personal development and was now spending his time changing peoples lives. He logged in to the game one weekend, I’m not even sure he was there to play. I guess he had some time to kill and we got talking. I told Ross what I was up to and he was really curious to know more. It just felt natural and safe to tell him what I was experiencing. The way he listened was weird, not wierd exactly, unusual. I felt valued, even though what I was telling him about my boring life was uninspiring. Ross really listened to me and I felt like there was nothing wrong, like I was fully accepted. If it had stopped there I would have grateful, to be heard and accepted is an amazing thing, you have to do it!
He had to go, so Ross made a time to catch up over zoom and continue the conversation. Over the next 2 weeks we had a zoom meeting and Ross emailed me some things as well. He believed in me like none else, not even my family. Ross helped me to paint a really inspiring future. I knew what happened next was up to me, it was my life and mine alone, but that gift has completely transformed my life. I work out at the gym and look great. I feel amazing about myself. I began studying and am now successfully in University studying to be a doctor, majoring in Psychology.
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE ROSS PEPPER:
I knew I needed to change but I just didn’t know where to start. Ross made it really simple and he was so encouraging and inspiring. I still remember what he said when I thanked him, “You are welcome, but the only thanks I need is you living the life of your dreams. Now go and make that happen!” How amazing is that. He is such a gentleman. Thank you Ross, I cannot possibly thank you enough – Watch out world! ?
HOW DID YOUR THINKING CHANGE:
Wow. Ross opened my eyes to opportunities I didn’t know were right in front of me, but most importantly he gave me the self-belief and self-worth to go for it. I don’t see challenges anymore, I see opportunities. It’s weird, people say problems are opportunities in disguise, but now I really get it. Not just like a nice thing to say to someone, they really are opportunities. I mean I was failing school 2 years ago and now I’m studying to be a Doctor. How totally amazing is that?!
WHAT WAS THE RESULT:
Like I said, I’m living a dream life. I can also see now what he meant by everyone on the planet can do this. I’m not special, I’m just living life to the fullest and I keep growing every day. Stop playing small, life is too short and too amazing to not be living your dreams. Take responsibility for your future, like only you can! If you need help just go and call Ross now, hopefully he’s still coaching people.
