How does a passion for serving others become so deeply etched into the persona? After hearing Alex Hezari’s stories of war-torn beginnings and family migration it’s easy to understand why he regards his adopted home as a lifelong blessing he constantly wants to pay back. Continued learning through his own and others’ experiences are what drives Alex’s success.
This extreme gratitude is evident when discussing Alex’s sporting ambitions, his business aspirations and even in the unique opportunity he has to serve his commercial property clients.
Perception: the way in which something is regarded or understood. Is the glass half full or half empty? It all depends on your perception.
What about that negative voice inside your head shouting loudly that you can’t do something? Is it really saying you can’t? There’s a reason this is generally called a negative voice.
Alex believes even that negative voice – the one which holds us back so many times – is really about your perception. “I think that negative voice in your head exists to push you, not to stop you,” he says.
Imagine how many decisions you would have made differently if that was your perception. Consider how different your life, your relationships or even your bank account might look, if you had decided to push on, rather than stop. Alex has spent most of his young adult life pushing on and believes it’s a major reason for the success he’s attained.
He attributes the lessons he learned chasing a dream to play soccer for Australia for creating the foundations of his attitude towards life.
