Will Polston had a realisation that changed his life, and now he helps others change theirs.
What’s your story?
I grew up with a belief that money equalled happiness and went off on a tangent to earn as much as possible. Later I had a big realisation that the real driver was nothing to do with money it was actually to do with my perception that a family member had not achieved their full potential. The impact that caused made me vow I did not want other people to go through that suffering. I have become obsessed with all things to do with human awareness, human potential, and human behaviour since.
What excites you most about your industry?
The impact that could be had on people’s lives, their family’s lives, their friends’ lives, their community, and even humanity.
What drives you in business to push beyond what other people consider normal?
Knowing that if people achieve their full potential it does not only benefit them but their families, friends, community, society, humanity.
What have been the most useful skills you have learnt and applied in your journey?
The most useful skill is the ability to communicate effectively and the power of perspective.
What’s the best piece of advice you ever received?
There is no such thing as a lack of resources only a lack of resourcefulness.
Who inspires you?
My mum, my day, my uncles, Tony Robbins, Dr. Demartini, and my clients.
What have you learnt recently that blew you away?
A powerful communication technique of how to disarm people when they are irritating, learnt from Dr. Mark Goulston in his book ‘Talking to Crazy’.
If you had your time again, what would you do differently?
Save 10% of everything I ever earned.
How do you unwind?
Meditate, run, fly planes and play golf.
What is a major mindset change, belief shift or ‘ah ha’ moment that you’ve experienced in relation to your business?
One of the biggest that I ever had was to just start small because starting small and starting is better than not starting at all.
