Description

With my next expedition in the North Pacific Ocean on the horizon I'm on the lookout for companies with a strong sustainability value to come onboard as a sponsor and partner. Some people keep missing their work or personal targets without ever realizing why, but brutal self-honesty is a great way of shining a light on our weak spots. When I was briefly involved in corporate culture – full suit and tie, I hated it – you wouldn’t get any feedback. Along with Special Forces Chief Instructor Billy Billingham MBE, Rudy Reyes and Chris Oliver, Foxy puts members of the public through SAS Selection, in the ultimate test of physical and psychological resilience.

As an ex military who've been through some depression and anxiety I understand exactly what he is talking about, I resonated with him a lot.

The rawness and openness about his struggles with overcoming depression and PTSD were incredibly honest and I appreciated listening to his journey. The explosive life story of Special Forces operative Jason Fox, star of Channel 4's 'SAS: Who Dares Wins' and 'Meet the Drug Lords'. Jason takes us from his enthusiasm in joining the military, to his experiences in combat, to the failure of the dept of Defense in guiding him in his battles with PTSD. Although a little bit repetitive about the author PTSD issue its an honest account about someone who’s been in the heart of the storm and knows that sometimes even completing the mission leaves some deep scars.

If you are interested in Jason Fox himself or just want to build on your own inner strength no matter what life is throwing at you, then pick this book up! But he’d lost his ‘military mojo’, and after countless therapy sessions, he came to accept that a diagnosis of PTSD and medical discharge was the ‘least worst’ option.I wrote a book for those feeling helpless leaving the military, as I felt the leaving process was more than a little lacking! It was a turning point in the public relationship with and awareness of Special Forces operations – they became mainstream news, having always been very much undercover. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. His home life fell apart too and he was finally advised by his superiors that he could only get better if he left the military.

And hopefully this will help the readers, who may be in a similar place to where Foxy was, to see that they are not alone and that there are resources out there to tap into and find the brand of help that will get them on the road to recovery!The first thing is don’t be a tyrant, because no-one will care about you and you won’t lead anything. It’s hard to imagine that Jason Fox didn’t share his feelings for 20 years, considering how profusely the man spills about mental health today. This was an amazing endeavour and I'll be forever hopeful that its own story might one day make it into print!

It is important that we continue to promote these adverts as our local businesses need as much support as possible during these challenging times. I was having a nightmare of a day – couldn’t see the purpose of anything, work wasn’t good, I’d had a massive argument, and just felt ‘What’s the point? Fox, with his co-star of SAS: Who Dares Wins, Ollie Ollerton, co-founded a corporate team building, training and events company. Having come through my own mental journey this book has helped me reflect on the skill set I have gained in resilience overall in not doing to bad.He had absolutely no support and from the persona he gives on tv you have absolutely no idea how hard he’s worked on himself to become or find that person in himself. Following the first season of SAS: Who Dares Wins, after I’d admitted my breakdown to a large TV audience, I was asked whether I was worried about the public perception of me. In 2019, Jason completed the ‘ Poor Mans Gold Rush’; a 2,000mile kayak and 49mile trek through Alaska and Canada.
