Many of us go through life just gliding across the surface of our true selves. That is, we often veer away from really digging deep into our thoughts, feelings and dreams. Instead of avoiding ourselves and hiding in our darkness, maybe it’s time to grab a torch and get exploring. You may be surprised what you illuminate and discover.
Welcome to Lean In. A podcast that explores ordinary people’s extraordinary lives through honest storytelling. My guests share with me their journey of discovery, laughter, personal experiences and healing.
If you are going through a change or challenging period in life, Lean In is the space where we can surrender to the cycle together.
In this episode, we’re definitely in good company. I invited Trevor Hendy to give some insight into his extraordinary life, and it’s certainly a captivating story of colossal wins, fame and adoration, but also reconnection and deep self-exploration.
Many may know Trevor as the world’s ultimate, unchallenged Iron Man. In Australia at the height of his sporting success, he was not only an athletic inspiration, but also a well-known, household name. You’d find him gracing our TV screens, radios, magazines, adverts and even our cereal boxes. He was everywhere!
Throughout his career, he has won six Australian open Iron Man titles, four consecutive World Iron Man titles and became the prestigious four-time winner for the Uncle Toby’s Super Series. In 2000, he was awarded an AM, member of the Order of Australia award.
Today, Trevor is a life coach, mentor, author, speaker, holistic personal trainer, presenter and workshop facilitator, helping people across the globe explore their own lives and create a life they truly want.
In this energetic recounting of Trevor’s story, we explore the different levels of the mind and a life of deeper consciousness. He certainly doesn’t hold back as he takes us to the pivotal moment where his athletic journey began, and what living in the mists of fame was really like.
