Do you have a 'go-for-it' attitude?

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

Stuart Fleming does! Businessman Stuart has taken a break from work and right now is somewhere along the Te Aroroa pathway. That's the 3,000km walking track that stretches from Cape Reinga to the Bluff. He's fulfilling a long-time ambition to walk the trail and using the opportunity to raise awareness for Scouts - Stuart's a senior volunteer for the national youth organisation.

The trek will take him around five months but Stuart's not daunted. Despite early problems with blisters and sore legs, he is sure his 'give-it-a-go' attitude will help him through.

"Seeing the good in things - and people - comes naturally and I enjoy making the most of every opportunity that comes my way. I have the energy and the mind-set to take on new challenges. I'm not easily fazed. I nearly always find a way around a problem. This helps me live my life to the full," he says.

And it spills into Stuart's business ventures too. He's the man behind Money Mindset Mob, the programme that helps teenagers get their heads around money issues, he's also a Personal Coach and Professional Speaker.

Over the years, Stuart has discovered that he can have an effect on people. He says he doesn't have all the answers, but he does have a sense of curiosity which can help inspire others, develop their 'can-do' outlook and move them to achieving things they never thought possible.
