What would you sacrifice to achieve your lifelong ambition?

What would you sacrifice to achieve your lifelong ambition?

By Alex Melia

You are a boxing fanatic. You have been obsessed with the sport ever since you were a child. As a teenager you have one overriding ambition: to work for the most prestigious boxing magazine in the country, “Boxing News”.

Now you are a young man. You tell your brother that you have plans to emigrate to Australia. You tell him there’s only one possible outcome that could prevent you from doing so: being offered a job at the magazine you have idolised for so long. Then the phone rings. Your brother answers it. He tells you the editor of “Boxing News” is on the line.

Is this call just a coincidence? Could Claude really end up getting his dream job at such a key moment in his life? Was all of this simply meant to be?

Alex Melia, and the Stories of Men team are on a mission to uncover what it means to live an independent and meaningful life. We'll be sharing this knowledge with you every week.

We’d like to extend our appreciation to today’s guest, Claude. His openness in communicating the unique way in which his life has evolved is fascinating to listen to. His reflections also provide a vital part of the puzzle as we try to piece together what it means to be a man in today’s world.
