Who is the average guy….?

Well, I am exactly that.. (In my personal opinion).

I am not going to pretend I have had a really tough upbringing, and compete with you about how I am where I am today without the help of anyone. I have a loving family, including great parents, a wonderful wife, and three amazing children. That said, like most people, life has been a rollercoaster of ups and downs, with some unforgettable great times, and sadly, unforgettable bad times too!

I try to always see the best in people, and give them the benefit of the doubt before judging them. I always try to understand the viewpoint of others, as that’s the only true way to understand why someone acts as they do. I don’t think I’ll ever fully understand anyone, but that shouldn’t mean I don’t bother to try.

Throughout my life I have often kicked myself for being the ‘nice guy’, usually when comparing myself to others in a situation who appear more confident, funny, attractive, skilled, etc. However, as I’ve grown (a little) wiser, I’ve stopped beating myself up for being myself. After all, who else am I going to be? Instead, I’m now putting my mind, and focus, and my energy into being the best me that I can be. This isn’t saying that I’ll ignore everyone else in my life, as to be the best me, means the best person I can be for those I care about, to be the role model to show that even someone who is an average guy, can genuinely have an awesome life!

What is Average Guy Awesome Life all about?

I have strenghts, and plenty of weaknesses, as does everyone else! I get a kick out of helping other people, so will be posting all sorts of different stuff on this site, whether it be things I’ve learnt about being a son, brother, dad, husband, friend, colleague, employee, etc…

Being an average guy, I wouldn’t say I’m the best at anything (and not usually the worst either to be fair), but there is so much knowledge, advice and information in the world, whether that is close to home from friends and family, or shared online in the world of publications and social media. So, although I went through school, and University, I’ve since earned a couple of professional qualifications, my most valuable lessons in life were not taught in the classroom, they were either things I’ve experienced, knowledge I’ve gone and found, or advice I’ve been given by people far more clever and wise than I probably ever will be.

I hope that this site is useful to you, whether it be to make yourself feel better that you are not the only one who is in the same boat, and going through very similar challenges to you, or whether you learn new things that, or it’s useful in any other way.

It’s not me preaching how you must behave in your life

It’s not to abuse, hurt or insult anyone

It’s not a place for you to channel your anger in abuse to me either..

It’s not just for me…
