DON'T DO IT ALL ON YOUR OWN
Everyone encounters difficult times at some point and the best way to make it through is by knowing where to turn for advice or information. Far from being a sign of weakness or vulnerability, asking for a hand is the smartest move you can make. Jeff Fenech didn't win world boxing titles in three weight divisions on his own, Mal Meninga didn't play in 46 rugby league international matches on his own and Bart Cummings needed support from a team of people in order to train a record 12 Melbourne Cup winners.
No man can do everything and be everything all the time. A little perspective from someone else could help and knowing where to turn is important.
For advice, support or just to get some of your worries off your chest, consider giving one of the numbers below a call.
