I know how fulfilling—and challenging—it can be to commit to growth, because I’ve walked the walk.
My background was in Kinesiology and Athletics, so as someone logical minded, it didn’t come natural for me at first to go inwards. But through my perseverance and willingness to be vulnerable and open to change, I’ve been able to make huge leaps forward in my own life.
My own starting point on this journey felt like a breaking point at the time. But it turned out to be the start of a powerful transformation. On Mother’s Day in 2016 I had to be rushed to the hospital with a suspected appendicitis, which ended up being a massive infection in my digestive system. I’d never experienced anything like that before and I was terrified for my life.
Over the next few months as I recovered in the hospital and home I started to reflect more on the direction of where my life was headed. Yes I had achieved a great deal of success by society’s standards but deep-down I knew I wasn’t living up to my full potential.
That was the beginning of a lifelong commitment to my own spiritual and personal development.
I started reading books and listening to podcasts on personal growth and self-development. I immediately fell in love with what I was learning about, my mindset started to shift which prompted me to find ways to better myself on a daily basis. I started to prioritize different actions in my life and my results started to change.
As I continued to prioritize my daily growth I started to realize how much personal growth has started to trickle into every aspect of my life. I made the decision to walk away from a successful 15-year career as a high school teacher and coach because my heart wasn’t into anymore. I loved helping people but knew that I wanted to serve people outside of the classroom and off-the-field. I hit a low point in my first few months away from teaching and I felt lost and confused. My career was the one area of my life that always came naturally to me but I knew it was costing me my wellness and my relationship with my wife and kids.
That’s when I discovered the teachings of Bob Proctor.
Thanks to Bob Proctor, I learned about the laws of attraction and how to create my own reality. After doing his Thinking Into Results course, I gained so much clarity on how to create and live a life of FREEDOM. I’d been raised to believe that in order to do better, you had to work harder. But I learned that when I could shift my thinking to a more positive and strategic mindset, I could actually get better results and work less.
As my awareness increased and my dreams and goals became more defined, what I wanted for myself started happening in my life. I’ve travelled extensively with my wife and kids to experience world cultures. We’ve moved from London (Ontario) to embark on a new adventure in Toronto, so we can pursue the lifestyle we always dreamed of where family and loved ones come first. We’ve redesigned our businesses, so that we can work remotely and call the shots about how our working lives are scheduled.
After making a series of amazing changes in my own life, that I’d never have dared to make before, I wanted to teach the valuable tools I’d been learning to other people. In order to do the best job possible as a coach, I decided to go to the source and be mentored by Bob, as a teacher of the Thinking Into Results program.
I use the principles of Thinking Into Results to make powerful shifts to their mindset. Time and time again clients tell me that working with me has literally transformed their lives. I feel honoured to accompany them on their journey—to teach them that the world is abundant and anything is possible.
