Timeline of Andrew’s shared story
Andrew travelled to San Diego, California (USA) and fell in love with the place. He set a dream that one day he would move there.
He did it. He moved to USA. Though physically organized, he wasn’t emotionally organized. In “the States”, he fulfilled a life-long dream by pushing himself through all kinds of mental barriers and entering PGA Tour School. According to him, it was the best week of his golf life.
A few short months later, with feelings of home sickness, he gave up on his planned future in America and moved back to Ireland.
Three weeks later, he realized what a mistake he had made to abandon his San Diego permanency plans. He knew he would regret it in old age so, he moved back and has (as he puts it) “flourished” since.
Andrew discovered the Courageous Self-Confidence podcast and found it to be a “shot in the arm” to his own self-confidence. He’s kept it in his personal playlist to help reinforce following his dreams and taking more leaps of faith in the future.
