On this 400th milestone episode of the World Game-Changers Podcast, Paul is joined by Titan Gilroy to talk firstly about moments of celebration and which ones stand out for him in his life. But, they quickly get into Titan’s story about his journey from homelessness as a child to successful amateur boxer to imprisonment and eventually to success in both life and business.
Some victories are more special when they’re about other people, when we’re younger and more immature it’s all about self, but as you get older it evolves to when you see other people – your family, team, company or team – benefit from something that you’ve been involved in, that’s when those wins become more special and valuable.
The fear for me going to prison wasn’t what it is for most people, I’m a fighter. My fear was that I had a good head on my shoulders, and I’d just ruined my life and other people’s lives. It was over. There’s no hope.
The fearlessness I had on the street and in prison was used in my job to make machines run more efficiently and got promoted, got a house and provided for my family and suddenly I had things to lose.
Failure in life will dictate what your purpose is because those are the times you overcome adversity and become stronger, your learning process ramps up more during the failures than during the good times because you’re forced to learn.
‘You have to celebrate on a daily basis whether your triumphs are big or small.’
‘In life, we all go through valleys, trials and tribulations. You need to look at the positives and do everything you can as a human being to improve your life.’
‘I’ve gained things in business that other people don’t because of the risks I take.’
‘If you want to make money in business you need to know how to solve problems for people.’
