I’m glad you’re here! I know if you’ve discovered this site it is because you’re attracting the information and ideas I share.
It’s my intention that the video, audio and writing I create and post here helps empower you to live your life with the unwavering knowing that you can be, do, have anything you desire.
Those four words form my core belief, and daily the Universe shows me evidence that this is true in ways that astonish me – there is so much good that wants us!
I never stop appreciating this knowing because I was once a person for whom the idea that I could be, do or have anything would have been incomprehensible.
To put it bluntly, I was a recipe for disaster by the time I became an adult. Growing up an obvious gay kid in a small farming community, I had been bullied for years. My alcoholic dad, with whom I had an emotionally tumultuous relationship, had died just before I turned 17. I dropped out of high school soon after and moved to Toronto with no money, no self-esteem, no education and no plan. I got myself into countless hot messes throughout years of inauthentic living that followed. I entered unhealthy intimate relationships, I abused drugs, and I confused what I did for a living and who my friends were with and what material things I owned with my true identity.
In my early 30′s, a revelation began to unfold within me that I had life on backwards, especially when it came to my definition of success and happiness. And from there I came to then learn that it was all on me; we are the creators of our own realities.
We are the stories we tell about ourselves. By using our thoughts deliberately we can create the lives we want.
That was a game-changer. Since then I have remained devoted to learning new ways to carve out a life that I will be proud of when all is said and done.
In the doing, I’ve become the happiest guy I know. I live an independent life beyond my fondest dreams, by my own rules, with abundance, prosperity and joy part of my daily experience. It’s like my own Hollywood ending.
Now I’m passionately committed to not just to speaking freely about the good life, but to share my story, my ideas and insights, and the tools that I use daily that help keep my momentum going, so anyone wanting to create authentic happiness and success can as well.
I call all this my #ThoughtRevolution, and it’s not lip-service, it’s a lifestyle. If I can do it, anyone can, so I invite you to meet me here regularly and to use my content as inspiration and guidance to start a #ThoughtRevolution of your very own:
READ – I update my blog regularly. I share experiences, insights, ideas and tools you can apply to your own journey.
LISTEN – Each week on my SiriusXM talk show I explore the concept of success and happiness with a wide variety of guests ranging from celebrities to newsmakers to the everyman. After the original broadcast, the episode is posted here for you to listen any time, free.
WATCH – There’s a wide range of videos we post here, all designed to provoke thought to help you be, do, have anything.
There are other ways in which I can also help you. I’m a speaker, and occasionally host workshops and private coach. And aside from producing my radio show and the digital content published here, I also publish the digital magazine GGN, your gay guide to good life (you don’t have to be LGBT to visit and enjoy it – the ideas presented there are for anyone!). Launched in 2002, it was the first digital magazine in Canada to speak the LGBT community and we’re really proud of the way it continues to grow and expand and help people everywhere be authentically fabulous.
Please have a look around, and let me know what you think!
