Learning to Never Give Up with Eden Thomas
“Don’t give up. Even when everyone is doubting you, don’t give up. Resilience is the one thing that’ll get you to where you need to be, just don’t give up.”
“Look at what you've been through and ask yourself, are you living a life less than the one you deserve? Are you happy? And if you’re not, believe me right now, you have so much power inside you to change that for the better.”
In this week's episode of Learning As I Go, Scott talks to childhood friend and business partner Eden Thomas, with whom he co-founded lifestyle brand Food4Thoughts which focuses on a holistic approach to people’s self-development/wellbeing. Eden shares how his traumatic three and half year journey to recovery from leukaemia taught him that he could achieve whatever goal he set his mind to.
You’ll hear him discuss how he felt his life lose all meaning in the early stages of his chemotherapy and the stages he went through to rediscover what life meant to him, culminating in a long and tiresome battle to earn a pilot’s license with British Airways. Eden and Scott talk about the importance of self-belief and determination, and how overcoming their own struggles led them to build a company that could help people achieve their own goals and give them the tools to chase their dreams.
