Who am I?
OK. So this is what you need to know, right off the bat. What you’re about to read isn’t the normal stuff you see the average “About Page.”
Yes, this is about me. But who I am isn’t what I do, and it isn’t all the cool stuff I’ve done. I’ll get to more about that in a minute.
But I suppose You need a little bit of that “normal” info. So here’s my nod to the status quo:
My bio in brief
- I’ve been self-employed for 25 years.
- My wife and I are business partners.
- I learned most of my lessons in business and life the hard way.
- I wrote a book about being your own boss. (You can find it on my book page, if you’re interested.)
- I’ve been a self-improvement junkie.
- I run ultra-marathons
- I’ve still got a lot of living to do.
If you’re not growing, you are dying.
I know. I know. You can debate the truth of this statement, if you want to get deep in the philosophical weeds. But let’s just say that it’s true for now and go on. Are you with me?
I know you’ve met people who are mostly happy with their life as it is. And then you’ve got the people unhappy with life, who bitch and moan, but never do anything to change or grow. If you’re either one of those people, I have to ask, “Why are you still reading this?” Well, I’m glad you’re still here.
But there’s another kind of person, the kind of person I was. These are the people who talk and act like they want to change their life, but they’re too scared to really dig deep and do what it takes to live free.
Everyone dies. But few people really live!
I loved this line in the movie Braveheart. But, back then, I was one of those people too afraid to really live.
I read tons of self-improvement books, I went to seminars, I listened to motivational messages, I recited pages of daily affirmations. But I never found the key to really change in my life. I kept doing the same thing over and over.
I kept trying. And I kept failing.
Finally, I got traction.
It wasn’t just one thing that made the difference. But I started picking up tools that helped dig into my life. I started getting rid of the garbage that was holding me back. And, in the spirit of full disclosure, God had a lot to do with the process.
Once I found the key I told God, “You mean that’s it! All I had to do was to think differently! I could have done that 20 years ago!”
God just gave me a slight smile. (No, I didn’t actually see him smile. But I certainly felt it. He was amused.)
What I discovered is that God isn’t really in a hurry. Think about it. His timeline is eternal. He wasn’t as concerned about my slow pace as I was. I felt like I’d lost a lot of time, and I could have been making things really happen in my life.
You don’t have to take the long way.
If you’re like me and have this burning desire to really live, to push the limits and be the best version of you that you can, then keep reading.
I made notes as I went along! My passion to be my best drove me to where I am now. And I’ve always tried to bring other people along with me.
In other words, I’ve always been a life coach. I ask questions that help others see life and it’s problems from a different and unique perspective. I’ve always helped people find solutions.
But now, I have something unique to offer. I now know how to help people experience real transformation in their lives.
The answer to the question.
Do you remember where we started this conversation? I kind of promised to tell you who I am. And all I’ve done is tell you a story. But, you see, the story is the answer. The story is a little bit of who I am.
This is one of the secrets I learned. I failed to change for all of those years because I was trying to work from the outside in. And the stories I told myself never changed. My self-image never changed. And, because of that, I never changed.
The first key to transformation lies in who you are. You live life from your identity. And most of us try to get our identity from what we do and what we have.
Live from the inside out.
What I help my clients with is to get out of the rat-maze of trying to do more and have more. You and I are trained to live from the outside in. It makes us perfect producers and consumers.
Don’t get me wrong. I want to help you produce a great life and have all the things you want as well. But your identity has to come from inside you. Not from what you do and have. That’s what I help you do. Live from the inside out.
I’d love to talk with you and see if I can help you live the life you’ve always dreamed about.
