Last week I met Samuel Johnson, a speaker at a conference I attended. He was chosen to speak to inspire and motivate his audience by his self-determination and passion. His sister is dying of cancer and set him what would appear to be impossible tasks:
- Raise a million dollars for Breast Cancer research
- Raise awareness of the disease that’s killing her
- Break the Guinness World Record for the longest journey on a unicycle.
Samuel is well on the way, has ridden 12,000 kilometres and raised over $800,000 so far. By February, 12 months after starting, he expects to have raised $1,500,000. I felt to share so as to help increase the awareness of his mission, which in part is to tell every woman in Australia to be aware about breast cancer.
The entire audience gave Samuel a standing ovation and rushed out to buy products in support of his cause, as well as be photographed with him. He is such a rare breed to follow through with such utter determination. He has made it fascinating, like Hamish and Andy’s show, asking that very town and city that he rides through provide him with a local challenge, which makes it all very newsworthy.

And remember to love your sister and each member of your family while you can. Really love and appreciate them, not forgetting yourself.
Love and Blessings.
