The Hurricanes openside flanker Du'Plessis Kirifi, or as we refer to him on the show “Dupes”, found himself in far more depth than he could handle during his struggle in “making it”. He refers to a time when he would drown himself in the distraction of alcohol to escape this hopelessness and these feelings of confusion and being lost, as he felt his dream being swept away from him. Amongst the overwhelm, he managed to find clarity, he managed to find success. But, how?
Join us as we take a deep dive into Dupes’s life as he strived from club rugby, to a rising Super Rugby star, and there’s hype around him possibly making it all the way to the All Black Team. Tune in to see how Dupes has taken himself from this lost and confused place, to finding hope, understanding and contentment within the chaos. He points out key areas that have allowed him to do this, so that you can take away and practice these tools for yourself.
NOTE: I (Kieran Hedley) as the host of this podcast, actually had a puff of weed from a bong the night before as an experiment not thinking it would affect me much. There was a lot of THC (a psychoactive part of cannabis). I haven’t smoked much in my life (aside from a wild time when I lived in California), so the THC made me considerably vacant compared to my usual self for a whole 72 hours. I even struggled to converse with anyone. This podcast was less than 12 hours after my cannabis experience, which made for a very interesting and unique interview experience. Tune in to see if you can hear my struggle as I interview Dupes. He handles this incredibly well and was very welcoming to my different self.
