Dr. Greg's Story & Why
As a young person I was full of talent and unlimited potential. Valedictorian in grade 8, President of the Student’s Council, Captain of high caliber hockey teams and a wonderful son. However something was not right in my values.
I went from a small community school to a big city high school and became lost in the alluring opportunities of sports, girls and parties. I was hungry to be noticed. I would do anything to be seen, to be recognized …but that did not bring the right kind of success. I learned how to powerfully communicate in order to avoid responsibility and also how to make excuses.
I went from being an honor student to a failing student. I was stripped of my captainship in a AAA Midget Hockey Team. This value system transcended into failing out of university and becoming a bouncer in a bar. Then after making it into the privileged officer training program and flying 130 hours in the snowbird military jet I “crashed & burned” which is a dramatic way of saying I did not make it through the program. I failed out!!!
Multiple attempts were made to succeed at multiple jobs and businesses but they often resulted in failure. This brought shame, poverty, struggle and misery. In the midst of all this my great successes were around teaching and speaking.
When I finally learned to operate solely in my gift-set, in my great strengths, I was released into a new freedom. I did not have to chase money for it was chasing me. A new joy emerged to the point where I was unable to wipe the smile off my face. I became naturally enthusiastic and my influence grew.
That new revelation led me to work with individuals, families and business units to bring vision, purpose, hope, prosperity and joy. When one’s True Destiny is released, miracles happen. I/we help unearth that true destiny in people. Each person is like a geode, black on the outside but when you “crack” it open the crystals are magnificent and in the same when you crack open who people really are, who they are meant to be, their beauty and magnificence is revealed. Their own understanding of who they are changes not only them but the atmosphere around them.
