Why I Started The Podcast
I started this podcast as I have faced mental health challenges most of my life. I have always found social situations difficult growing up, especially when meeting new people.
I am not afraid to say….I have social anxiety
The fear of judgement affected me so much that I would never open up, talk about me or my interests. I would only ask questions or nod in agreement.
After leaving University, I was trying to figure out what my career would be. I had studied Drama and Film production in University and started to become confident that this would be my career and self confident that I would make this a reality.
After a short period of becoming self confident, I decided to finally speak about my dreams and aspirations to others and even new people that I had just met…only to be told all the reasons of how difficult it would be to break into this industry.
Here are some of the things that I heard. You have to be related or know someone famous. You have to be exceptional, have a rare talent. Only a small percentage will make it. You will have to work 3-4 jobs and audition in between. I can’t see this happening for you. You come from Wales, who has made it from there?
The crazy thing is, I listened to all those people and let MY dream slip away. This was the only time I really opened up and it killed my aspirations. Years later, after self reflection, I finally realised that these people were wrong.
Those who told me I can’t, don’t work in the industry – so how do they know? They don’t know how talented I am or how determined I was, so how can they judge my gift?
These people were living in their own negative mindset so that this was the only way that they could communicate…negatively. They didn’t have their own dreams, passions, hunger and desires to make their own life a success.
Instead, they broke other peoples dreams to bring others down to their own level.
At the time, all I wanted was a bit of encouragement.
At the time, I didn’t show how this affected me on the outside, I just put on my mask and found an alternative career.
Since finding my feet and passion within sales, I also found a new mindset. I started analysing ME and understanding who I was.
I started changing my mindset, what I believed and what I was capable of. I realised from speaking with others with similar beliefs that they too need the encouragement. People come to me all the time to discuss their dreams, passions and desires.
Instead of closing the dream down (like others do), I let them talk and provide them with the positivity and work with them to help find the solution to make this happen.
This made me realise that we are all the same! We all have our own struggles and challenges! To me it is about opening up and listening to others, not shutting down.
Its about helping people!
The aim of The Hack Share Podcast – Self Help & Mental Health is to raise awareness, break the stigma and talk about mental health openly.
We talk about mental health with the leading experts who share their own personal journeys and provide essential tips which have helped them succeed in their field.
This is also why I started THS Life Coaching. Fundamentally, there are so many people like me who do not progress forwards. There are so many people with great gifts but don’t do anything with it or do not know that they have a gift.
This pains me because we can have the next Einstein among us…but the next Einstein gave up because ‘Gary’ down the road said it isn’t possible!!!!!
Its f*cking stupid.
