My (and your) Story Of Powerful Personal Transformation
I should have been euphoric. I should have been wildly ecstatic, walking on cloud 9 and yes, maybe even a little bit proud.
But I wasn’t.
It was September, 2001 and as I sat alone at my dining room table, staring at the magnificent trophy I had just won, declaring me the National Champion and qualifying me to finally compete internationally at the pinnacle of amateur physique competition, “The NABBA Universe,” all I could think was…
“Is that it? Is this all there is?”
It All Came Crashing Down!
The truth is, although I had been declared a winner in the eyes of the outside world, behind my own eyes, in my inner world, I felt like a complete loser.
As I sat there, I wondered how I would ever be able to pay for the flight overseas to compete. My finances were a mess and I was already deeply in debt.
I was absolutely exhausted from working the long hours that I needed to work with my clients just to keep my head above the rising financial tide.
I didn’t want to see people, I didn’t want to talk to people and, quite honestly, wondered if was possible that I had completely lost all sense of my personality.
Additionally, I had recently gone through a divorce and I was struggling to cope with the emotion of it all.
And that night in September, it all came crashing down!
Something Had To Change.
The words of Neil Diamond playing on the television in the background that night rang true in my head:-
“I am I cried; I am said I…and I am lost and I can’t even say why…”
I realised in that moment that I was indeed truly lost! It seemed that my whole life was a complete mess.
But that moment was also an awakening. It brought home the stark realisation that my life could not continue down this path for another moment!
Something had to change!
As that moment of realisation turned into days and then into weeks and months, I began to become obsessed (maybe even desperate!) with finding the answers I needed to finally move my life forward.
I realised that if I wanted a powerful personal transformation, I had to start by creating a brand new vision for my life.
After spending some time thoughtfully crafting a new vision, I immediately got to work.
The first thing I did was I asked myself what I needed to DO to achieve it. After all, a big bold vision requires big bold action to achieve that powerful personal transformation right?
And that is when I came face to face with myself!
Awakening To Powerful Personal Transformation.
You, me and everyone has their own story in life.
Like some rite of passage, what is common to nearly all of us is that at some point we hit a plateau or get stuck.
The only way you can move past this is by stepping into what I call, the GAP.
Each of us has to face our own unique combination of presenting problems, disempowering emotion, thoughts, choices, beliefs, identity, self-worth, incongruent values and priorities.
These things stand the GAP between who you are today and the powerful personal transformation you must undergo to unlock your hidden potential and achieve your ultimate life’s vision.
My journey over the last two decades has been about figuring out how to close that GAP as quickly as I could by overcoming challenges that stood in my path and getting my life coaching clients to do the same.
Unfortunately my initial efforts were fraught with frustration, disappointment and a huge waste of money as I scoured the Personal Development, Self-Help, Life Coaching and “Guru Seminar” industries for answers.
There was so much fluff, repetition and outdated 1-0 type information out there while so many unscrupulous people were simply trying to make a name for themselves.
I decided I needed to really dig deeper and find a much more authentic truth.
So I immersed myself deeply into everything from NLP, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Life Coaching, Time Line Therapy to Neuroscience.
What I discovered was brand new perspective in personal growth and development, a new opportunity to experience a powerful personal transformation.
Over these last 2 decades, with over 80 000 hours of individual life coaching and group coaching, I have developed and incorporated this powerful personal transformation into a blueprint.
It is the same blueprint which I now teach in my PEAK Performers Academy and in my Decision to Destiny Seminars.
It has now been a full 20 years since that day in September 2001 when it all came crashing down for me!
The personal transformation I have experienced and facilitated in the lives of my life coaching clients has been nothing short of miraculous.
Since then I have been privileged to implement my life coaching blueprint with people from all walks of life.
It has been so successful that I managed to secure a four year contract with the Royal Palace of Monaco, working with Princess Charlene and her Foundation.
Personal Growth and life coaching continue to be my greatest passion in life.
I now have the unique privilege of regularly and predictably witnessing the powerful personal transformation of those courageous life coaching clients who choose to boldly step into the GAP with me!
These clients, who are fearlessly overcoming challenges to unlock their hidden potential so that they can achieve their ultimate life’s vision, continue to and will forever inspire me!

Embarking On Our Own Journey Of Powerful Personal Transformation Together
Scary Fact:- If you don’t have a very clear vision for where you want to be in 3 years, 5 years and even 10 years down the line, you are ALREADY there!
You can expect to be living exactly the same life for the rest of your tomorrows as you are living today.
Now, if you are completely satisfied with where your life is today and you are completely happy to be living this same life 3 to 10 years from now, congratulations!
There is nothing wrong with that and we probably don’t need to continue our conversation.
But I am sure you wouldn’t be here if you were entirely satisfied with where your life is right now! AND you wouldn’t be searching for a powerful personal transformation to take you to where you want to go.
Since you are looking for a solution to a problem, you might recognize that there is a GAP between where you are today and where you want to be.
You may also recognise that standing in that GAP is not what you have to DO to close it. You have already tried that and felt the incredible resistance that comes with trying to do new things that put you outside of your comfort zone.
So you thought that perhaps you chose the wrong strategy and so you tried something new. But again, you came up against the same internal resistance.
Standing in the GAP is not what you have to do. It is the powerful personal transformation you need to embrace to BECOME who you need to become to achieve your goal or life’s vision.
It is your thoughts, your emotions, your values, your identity, your self-self worth and your world view that accounts for a full 80% of success or failure.
The other 20% is tactical. But you will never get to it effectively without first working hard in the GAP.
Getting very clear on what you want is our first crucial step. This kind of uncommon clarity has power because it ultimately will determine WHO you need to become and what you need to overcome to achieve it.
I will step into the GAP with you. Together we will be fearlessly overcoming obstacles that are standing in the GAP so that we can unlock your hidden potential.
Then we will create a powerful personal transformation strategy to slam the GAP shut so that you are free to achieve your ultimate life’s vision!
