As someone who has achieved a lot: overcame a severe anxiety disorder, nursed his mother through terminal cancer, successful marketing career, then successful published novel after only six years as a writer (endorsed by J M Coetzee, acclaimed by David Malouf and MJ Hyland), award-winning short story writer, migrated to Australia on Distinguished Talent visa, been on UK TV for concept art, I’ve learnt how to overcome fear. I’ve worked out what attributes take you far, but also how important it is to me now to understand my motivations for success. That success doesn’t work. Doesn’t fill you up. So this is a talk both about how to get there, but to know why, and that knowing why may make getting there not so important. That it is important to know what you ‘worship’, why?, and to think twice about what you really want to worship in your life.
The anatomy of anxiety. Ambition, a necessary bastard. How to fall in love with fear. The benefits of disillusionment. The power of awareness.
