Travelling Australia as a motivational speaker, I've had the pleasure to meet, and share thoughts, with some of the most beautiful people in the country. From motivational speakers, Inspirational Authors, Mental Health Advocates, Personal & Group Trainers, and those bringing awareness to, and reducing, suicide. After speaker with each person, there's one thing they all have in common; a deeper self that seems to be guided by something far greater than thought. They're selfless, but are embarrassed when you mention this, often bringing up someone else that's doing great things, just to take the attention of themselves.
The people standing next to me in this photo are a few of those I'm referring to.
Those next to me have literally saved 10's of 1000's of people's lives. And that's being modest.
You Are Your Environment
... That's why I like to get around those that are doing amazing things for not only the physical world, but more importantly, helping the spirits and minds of those that are in need (everyone).
Standing directly to my left in the photo, is on the front foot and leading his organisation, Livin, to spread awareness for Suicide and the message of It Ain't Weak To Speak. The message is important for everyone, but especially important for Australian Men. Males in Australia feel that they're weak if they're sharing their thought and emotions. Sam's organisation wants to get in our males heads that it's actually showing strength when speaking up about yourself, and it's okay to ask for help. Holding emotions in, just compounds the issue.
Not only is Sam doing great things, but he's a loyal friend and all around cool guy. We recently travelled to Dubbo where we were both guest speakers for a mental health event, and it was refreshing and inspiring to get to know him.
After we spoke at one of the events, he stuck around afterwards to spend time with parents that just lost their son. Top guy.
Further along is my homeboy Jim Owen from Jorg Fitness. Jim is an absolute legend in our community. This photo was taken at Jim's launch for his new premises where he will be training his team towards their goals. Jim asked Sam to attend because a few months ago Jim organised an event to raise money for Sam's organisation, Livin.
Jim has been there for anyone, and is selfless with his time and always looking for ways to help those around him. His group of friends at his gym adore him! The results for his clients come down to the fact that Jim will do absolutely anything for them.
He regularly organises charity events to raise funding for different causes and charities. All you have to do is meet him to know what a beautiful heart he has. True gentleman.
And last but not least, Jade from Punchys. I've literally watched her totally transform the lives of countless people.. physically and emotionally.
Through exercise & mindset coaching she puts everything into helping improve the physical and mental state of those at Punchys. She's put together charity events - one where she raised 15k for a beautiful young girl who needed overseas treatment. Every Christmas she does a massive food drive for homeless people in Syd City.
Biggest heart I know.
The above paragraphs don't explain 1 - 1000 of what these guys have done behind closed doors for other people in need.
They're humble peeps that probably don't get enough recognition for what they do.

Motivational Speakers for schools, corporations, and guest speaker for events, Luke S. Kennedy, uses his “breathtaking story” to open audience’s eyes, and mind, up to ego – to the labels that we battle to live up to, and also demonstrates through his own thrilling examples, how worrying what other people think is ruining our relationships, following through on ideas, happiness, and success in every area. Becoming aware of ones ego and labels, is the first step towards releasing it.
Luke shows how when we come into this world we are a pure spirit with unlimited potential and happiness. As life goes on though we get disconnected from this true-self - Some dramatic events will occur, we may do some regretful actions, or get negative beliefs about ourselves or labelled with certain things that take us away from this true happy-self. The further we get away from the true-self, the unhappier we become because we’re not being ourselves. Labels, ego, and worrying what people think, crushes productivity and results in an overactive and doubtful mind - a feeling of being lost, depressed, anxious, and socially awkward, is a result of this.
