The things I wish I would’ve known in my 20’s

I dropped out of school at 20 to start my first business.

That was 12 years ago.

My 20’s were brutally hard as I tried to figure out how to make it in this world, how to “become a man,” how to offer my gifts, how to run a business properly, how to make my dreams real, how to heal my issues…

All these pursuits added a great deal of weight and stress to my plate.

I made incredibly ungrounded, unintelligent choices with my business, trying to make “big things happen” because I didn’t have the wisdom or patience to allow things to unfold at their own organic pacing.

I sought to prove myself to my family and the world. To make a name for myself.

I had many humbling lessons…
so many epic failures…
and a whole lot of hardship.

Fortunately, I am a stubborn Taurus with a lot of passion and an unwilligness to give up.

But I KNOW my journey could have been easier, more graceful, prosperous and fun.

I was cocky. I wanted to “figure it out on my own.”

I now realize, it would’ve been more beneficial to find mentors, seek out help and guidance from others further along on the path than me, and to adopt a strong desire to learn from everyone.

I believe our 20’s is a time for doing the deep soul-searching kind of work. To discover who we are without our parents and without our peers at school.

This is a seriously INCREDIBLE webinar summit that I wish I would’ve had access to when I was in my 20’s. 

My guess is, it would’ve saved me a lot of heartache and strife.

If you’re in your 20’s and “searching” then sign up and show up to each interview.

If you know somebody in this stage of their life, pass the link on and encourage them to go.

This was a very fun interview for me, as I got to share some of the hardships I grew through and how I got through my 20’s stronger and more “Me” than ever.

I’m looking forward to sharing in a conversation with you, after you’ve listened.

Big Visions Require Big Sacrifices

Big visions require big sacrifices. 

Truth is, most people aren’t willing to sacrifice:

there comforts

to bring those visions to life.

I can’t say I blame them. I’ve often questioned what the fuck I’m doing.

Spending my life working towards lofty goals. It seems like madness, it honestly does.

Yet at the same time, it feels like the right thing to do.
In some crazy way, it actually feels like the best thing to do with the majority of my time on Planet Earth.

Perhaps it’s my ego tricking me as it searches for:

Or, maybe it’s me just doing what I’m hardwired to do.

I have these natural abilities as a leader, creator and entrepreneur.
I feel it’d be a waste to not use them for the betterment of others.

I know there are many days where I wish I was wired to want a much simpler existence. Today was one of them.

But there is drive that keeps me motoring forward (sometimes it even drives me a little crazy). 

“Just take the next step. Go a little farther. You’ve come this far, see what’s over the next mountain.”

Is the effort worth it? I guess I’ll find out, won’t I?

So far. It’s made for a helluva a story and the story just keeps getting richer.

ManTalks Speech: Spirituality, Mastery, Meditation, Business & Golf

I spoke at a ManTalks event in Vancouver in front of 150 young entrepreneurs back in March on the topic of Spirituality and about my own personal spiritual journey. ManTalks is like TedTalks but geared towards men.

In this 25-minute presentation I shared parts of my story I’ve never talked about publicly before. Some of the things I talk about are:

  • What moved me to drop out of school and start my first business,
  • My lowest moment in life which was the catalyst for transformation and the path I now live,
  • What spirituality is to me and how I practice in my life, relationships, business and golf game,
  • How golf is a path to Self Mastery for me and what that means,
  • How meditation has been a catalyst in my life for presence, purpose and facing my fears,
  • The FOUR Questions that have transformed my entire life and could do the same for you,
  • My advice for anyone thinking about taking a big leap of faith in their life,
  • And a bunch of inspirational side stories that will make you laugh and possibly shed a tear or two.

How I Deal with Failure, Fear & Even Death

Failures, fears, the unknown, death of loved ones, loss, feeling lost, anxiety, depression and being clueless about how and why you ended up on this planet of all places in the Cosmos are just some of the things you will inevitably experience on your journey to living your full potential. However, a decade ago I learned the most powerful lesson in my life that has helped me move through ALL those challenges with gentleness, swiftness and yes, even joy.

I was recently interviewed by Gail Goodwin on her show, Inspire Me Today for my fourth time. She has been doing interviews with inspiring luminaries in all fields of human potential, business, spirituality and success EVERYDAY for about 7 years now … She done thousands of interviews and shared inspiring messages that have reached MILLIONS of listeners all over the world. Talk about dedication.

This interview was my favourite of all time. We dove into the thick of it and authentically shared about our own experiences and what we do to get through pretty much any challenges we’ve been faced with; failure, death, lack of money, loss, fear, sickness, difficult relationships and more…
