Pathway to Self Mastery

‘Your own self realisation is the greatest service you can render the world’ is a quote from Ramana Maharshi and a philosophy Damian endeavours to embody everyday. Since first taking responsibility for his life at 17, Damian’s mindset has been one of self realisation. In this keynote Damian retells the story of the night that changed the course of his life; “I pulled my hood over my head to keep the rain off and started running…“ and how he rewired his mind through his actions over the next 30 days to imprint a mentality that has served him in achieving extraordinary feats ever since. The central spine of this talk is Damian’s 6 step pathway to Self Mastery: Responsibility – Values – Commitment – Planning – Work – Perseverance.

Themes & Focuses Explored: 

Self Mastery. Self Realisation. Purpose. Fulfillment. Ownership. Mindset. Goal Setting. Neuroplasticity. Success.

WHAT PEOPLE SAID ABOUT DAMIAN

“I can personally recommend Damian as a speaker for any conference. Within a fairly short time-period he committed to preparing a full length TEDx speech, and flew down to Switzerland to present it to an audience of more than 500 people. Working on the speech together with Damian was a very pleasant experience and his approach was professional. The retelling of his numerous extreme adventures, in combination with the lessons learned within them, provided for a compelling narrative which kept the audience invested for the entirety of his speech.”

– Florian Misteli, Head of Speakers, TEDxHSG 2018

Keeping staff motivated during a prolonged pandemic induced lockdown is difficult. Distractions from the daily workload is something we put in place to help with this, where colleagues could sit back and hear inspiring stories from people from all walks of life – such as an extreme adventurer, Australian Olympian, Australian defence force personnel, judge, politician etc. We were delighted to have Damian kick off the first session and share some of the incredible stories from both his rugby career and extreme adventures, in particular the challenges he faced and overcame in his solo Atlantic row. While there is no doubting the physical strength needed to tackle that task, what most impressed this bunch of lawyers was the mental fortitude displayed by Damian during his journey. Damian’s humble and honest insights led to a fantastic and engaging session where people walked away inspired to be a better version of themselves.

– Gordon McGann, Partner, Hamilton Locke

“Damian spoke to the players and staff the week of The All Blacks test match in Dublin last November. Using footage from his Atlantic row, he brought us along on his gruelling journey. Describing the many challenges that he faced, Damian also shared the mental strategies and processes he used, which helped him to get to the other side. The players were engaged throughout and it was plain to see that they were impressed by the will and determination shown by Damian. The players were in the midst of preparation to play the world’s Number one rugby team so we were hoping for some of that determination to stick.”

– Joe Schmidt, Ireland Rugby Coach
