NAME: Nate Campbell
CURRENT POSITION: Physical Education and Maths Teacher
WHERE IS YOUR HOME TEAM: Born and raised in Seven Hills, Western Sydney
WHO DO YOU PLAY FOR NOW: Seven Hills
WHAT’S YOUR GAME PLAN: Long term goal is to keep striving to be a better person than I was yesterday and continually help, guide and inspire people to achieve greatness. My ambition is to remain a role model for the students I teach and to continue living my passion for health and fitness.
WHAT’S YOUR STRATEGY TO ACHIEVE IT: My strategy to achieve my game plan is to continually strive to be the best person I can be through my actions, voice and thoughts. Our mind is a powerful tool and I will continue to develop my passion for personal development and hopefully keep inspiring others to realise their true potential. We all have greatness within us and we all have opportunities each and everyday to be great and happy. We just have to decide what we want and believe that it can be achieved. An individual who believes they can or who believes they can’t are usually right! What inspires me is the passion and desire in others chasing their dreams and aspirations.
LIST 1 OR 2 ‘GOLD MEDAL’ MOMENTS IN YOUR LIFE: I was fortunate enough to become college captain at my high school which I have taken great pride and appreciation in. This opportunity taught me leadership skills, communication skills and gave me the confidence to inspire others. I also believe that each day we live is a gold medal moment. Love the present and be thankful for things that you have and the endless amounts of opportunity that the day brings. Create a burning desire to be happy and make others happy. Our only limitations are those we set up in our mind.
WHO ARE YOUR CHAMPIONS: Firstly the people who I admire greatly and dearly are both my parents. Being a triplet, I now realise how hard it would have been to raise three children all at once. They have always been there for us and have endlessly provided us with an upbringing that I will always cherish and never forget. We never went without and always had the best of everything. I am forever thankful for the opportunities they have given us knowing very well how hard they had to work and sacrifice. If I can one day provide and care for the children that I may have in the future as half as good as them, I would be satisfied. As stated before I am passionate about personal development and admire people who stand to make a change in others lives. A champion who I also admire is Eric Thomas. Eric is a renowned motivation speaker, educator, author, activist and minister. Eric Thomas is rising to national prominence by delivering high energy messages that encourage people to live to their full potential. Formerly a high school dropout, he has obtained a masters degree in 2005 and is currently completing his PhD in Education Administration. Eric represents the merits of higher education, and together with his knowledge of pain in life, he inspires people of all walks of life to break bad habits and reach new levels of personal achievement.
IN YOUR OPINION, WHAT MAKES AN EVERYDAY CHAMPION: An everyday champion is someone who can wake up in the morning determined to challenge themselves and be inspired by what the day has in store for them, and go to bed satisfied knowing that they are living on their own terms and knowing that for that day they have made a change.
WHAT’S YOUR MOTTO: Eric Thomas says “Make the rest of your life the best of your life”. This speaks in volumes in life. We all have a past, we all have made mistakes which can not be taken back or changed. What can be changed is who we become and what we do for the rest of our days. Why shouldn’t we strive to enjoy everyday? Why shouldn’t we be happy or make others happy? We can, and it all comes down to choice. Our life and our future lay in the choices we make and the actions we take.
