WHAT KOKODA IS ALL ABOUT

For Glen, completing the Kokoda Trail 79 times is not about fueling his ego. It's about the people. Connecting with the people on the experience with Glen became the ultimate goal.

Second to this, mindfulness is the second best thing. Sitting in your thoughts and being detached from the outside world allows you to make decisions on things you probably already have the answer to. Kokoda forces that on you. 

SMALL FIGHT, SMALL FIGHTER

For many, social media is a way to escape a shitty situation in their own lives. Whether that be a bad work situation, relationship or whatever it may be. 

f used well social media an be a good thing, but if you aren't feeling good about yourself, it can have the reverse effect. There are plenty of good people you can follow who can light your fire. If your fire isn't blazing with the people you follow on social media, cut them out now, the Kardashians won't even notice.

ADDICTIVE COMFORT

Change is bloody uncomfortable. The biggest addition in the world is not drugs, alcohol or sex, it's comfort.

In this modern world, we have become so accustom to technology and how easy everything is. Food delivered to your door, online shopping, you don't even have to switch a light on anymore, just ask Siri, Alexa or ole mate Google. 

The best thing you can do to counteract this right now is to get off your arse and go and pick your dinner up from the restaurant that is 400m away.




IT'S NOT MY FAULT!

Everything that happens to you, is your responsibility or you had a responsibility in that happening. By taking responsibility for everything that happens to you, you have control on your outcome. 

Taking ownership is the first step of learning from a situation, looking at your reaction and questioning your decisions is the next.

You can't make the same mistake twice because the second time it is an informed decision as you already know the outcome.



HERE IF YOU NEED!

I don't know what I want? I don't know what my goals are? I don't know what I want to achieve?

Alot of people are not clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety however can feel sad, depressed or anxious and this can cause them to be what is most commonly described as "being in a rut".

Glen Azar encourages you to just take an action. - within in the next 24hours. Just take a small step to make a change, it doesn't have to be a big one. Just move forward in any positive decisions you make.
