Like every young Canadian boy, hockey was a wonderful part of my childhood. I grew up spending hours practicing on outdoor rinks dreaming about becoming an NHL star. With hard work, perseverance and dedication, I made it to the NHL.
Another highlight in my hockey career was winning the silver medal at the 1992 Winter Olympics in Albertville, France. Looking back, I traveled everywhere and experienced so much, yet I rarely felt I played with enjoyment and never really took full advantage of all the moments I had experienced.
I often felt anxious and unfocused! I compensated by working harder and trying to be perfect. I spent most of my energy trying to manage my fears so I could appear strong. I recall sleepless nights, my stomach tied in knots and my mind racing wondering if I was ready for the upcoming game. I never felt relaxed. I knew there was another way of going through life. Deep down I knew I had the ability to choose my thoughts and experience my life in a more empowering way.
The resiliency I developed through my struggle led me on a quest in search of answers. I started reading many books, exploring different modalities such as, Tai Chi, Reiki, Meditation, Pilates and Yoga to help me change my feelings. This was something I did not share openly because I felt it would make me appear weak.
I am grateful to have taken this path. Today, I realize we are continually growing and expanding. This process is ongoing when you live with a purpose. I want to support you in feeling empowered and finding alignment with who you are and what you truly desire.
Like so many of you, I spent my days wondering if there was something more out there. Because I have been on that journey, I am ready to help you on yours.
