The book is a candid look at how we form limiting beliefs and more importantly gives tangible and exciting ways to smash through them and generate more resourceful and empowering states. An amalgamation of studies, experience and exercises serve as a catalyst for dramatic positive change in the reader. Raised in South East London, Stephen left his college studies to begin generating income at an early age. Following a series of different employments he decided that he valued his autonomy more than his comfort zone and made the leap in forming his own business. Since then, he has directed a portfolio of businesses in a great variety of different fields. These businesses included everything from a successful Laser Clinic to a very well-known Mixed Martial Arts promotion. After a great deal of financial success from his businesses and small property portfolio, Stephen made a conscious decision to realign his work with his purpose and will only now work on something that makes his ‘heart sing’. He scaled back the businesses he had minimal passion for, regardless of financial success, and has turned his focus fully onto the Personal Development industry where he realises he has the skill and ability to save the lives and businesses of many. Consultant As a highly educated behavioural psychologist with ample experience in the business sector, the demand for Stephen’s consultancy is almost a given. Stephen delivers behavioural change services to everyone from large FTSE 100 companies to small start-ups. The common denominator being the people involved are ultimately in control of the destiny of the business; give them more internal resources and they will be able to deliver more. Stephen is a Level 3 qualified Personal Trainer and Nutritional Advisor and Level One CrossFit Instructor. With many supplemental qualifications and great experience he prides himself on keeping his body in peak condition and fully functional across the full sprectrum of fitness. Trained by Special Forces including US Navy Seals, Israeli Yaman, Phillipino NAVSOG, Australian SAS, Russian Spetsnaz and British SAS his all round physical ability and mental fortitude is unrivalled. Stephen was also winner of Summer Slaughter in 2014 on Europe's most challenging assault course at Mike's Gym in Marbella Spain. Although his MMA career was cut short due to injury Stephen retired from the sport undefeated. He now runs his own bootcamps and training in UK and Europe where he uses what he has learnt to push others to their physical and mental limit.
