David, 24, Scotland

Professional Pic 2016.png“In my initial years of university, I experienced an Eating Disorder for two and a half years and Depression for a year. I overcame these challenges by rediscovering purpose and positive mindset: by working on my achievements and seeking to better myself physically and mentally.


At the age of 22, I lost my Dad to cancer and this experience radically shifted very different perspective on life. I decided I want a very different script to the one I had been living up until that point.

I was fortunate enough to spend the last 60 minutes of Dad’s life by his bedside, and in those last 60 minutes I learned three truths about life: live with gratitude, live authentically, and give more love.

I have used these three principles to take my life in a positive and exciting direction, and I now teach and train others how to do the same. I have recently published these three lessons in a book called “The Last 60 Minutes”, available on Amazon.

If you are struggling right now, try to find and focus on the small victories whenever you can, do more of what you find joy in, and try to give and contribute whenever you can. We find happiness in what we are able to do for others.

If you would like to learn more about my story and teaching, you can find me on Facebook and Youtube and my website .”
