I Can’t Count to Ten…
Over the 25 years of his existence, Jacob Moore has become quite familiar with losing control, particularly when it comes to his health. From being born with a few pieces missing, to nearly dying in 2009 he has learned that often the best approach to these times is positivity, optimism and a healthy dose of humour
Like it or not, your life is not always under your control. However, how you handle it is.
Rhinos and a 2x4
Gord Melville learned the hard way that Self Care needs to be at the top of one's life triangle because if not, and one becomes ill in any way; we are useless to our family, friends and businesses we run. It’s actually very selfish not to look after yourself!
Work hard and play hard, suck the marrow out of the bones and Carpe Fatum, but for goodness sake, take care of yourself first!
Living Beyond the Label
Laura Thomas knows what it feels like to be on the cold kitchen floor. After thinking she had her life figured out, it was all taken away with four words: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Those four words, a label given to her by a tragedy, held her captive and Laura was gone. She took her power back now coaches other women who have lost their identity and shares her story of inspiration on many stages. Each of us can take control of our own lives if we start believing in our own worth.
Celebrate the Small Wins!
Rob Osburn ties together a few stories in his life where he had a small win. In Kindergarten he soiled himself at school...but none of his classmates found out - He got to work on the TV show Survivor - A bad business decision cost him $15,000. The life blow led to rediscovering his faith in life. Six months later he randomly won $15,000 in a lottery. He was restored!
A lot of people hold out for that big win. But if we can celebrate the small wins, over time it can be just as impactful.
