Head = Fear, Ego, Problems
Heart = Courage, Love, Trust, Possibilities,
July 2013 – The conversation I had within my own head went something like this,
Head – “I am going to be stuck in this job forever”
Heart – “Unless there is there something else out there I could be doing?”
Head – “Nah, I’m only good at hospitality. Just keep doing this. One day you’ll be the boss and can make an odd $100,000. Who cares if you have to work 50 hours a week, 6 days a week, every weekend, every public holiday, Unable to play sport, drinking every night just to switch off from the club speakers that were blaring for the last 4 hours of your shift”
Heart – “That can’t seriously be my life for the next 40 years can it?”
Head – “Yep, because you are not good enough to do much else. Stick to what you know and play it safe”
Head – “Ok”
ANNNNNNNNND……this conversation was on repeat every week for about 6 months before, with the help of a friend, I backed myself, quit hospitality and stepped into the realm of “What the hell have I just done”.
For the next month the conversation went a little like this,
Head – “Stuff this, I’m going back”
Heart – “No way man. I have an opportunity. Don’t give up just yet. Give it a couple months and see what happens.”
Head – “Come on man, maybe a different hospitality job is all you need. Lets go back and be comfortable again.”
Heart – “I’ve got this, there must be something else.”
Fast forward 3 years and the conversation now goes something like this,
Heart – “I will never go back. I will never settle for second best”
Head – “You know you might fail?”
Heart – “There is no such thing as failure, only feedback.”
Heart – “I’ve got this”
Heart – “Yes you do bro”
Heart- “Man I love what I do”
Head – “Oh, theres an opportunity for the business to step it up but it’s outside your comfort zone. Wanna chill here for a while and see what happens?”
Heart – “Nup, lets rock this $h#t. Bring it on”
Heart wins, I win.

TIP – This isn’t heads or tails where gravity decides the outcome. This is Heads or Hearts. You choose which side of the coin to land, EVERY. SINGLE. TIME!
