When change becomes moTransformational!

Our lives revolve around change. The leaves change. The weather changes. Markets change. Companies change. Heads of state change. Traditions change. Cultures change. Our friends change. Our bodies change.
So why is it that although there is physical change all around us, all the time, we often find it so difficult to change our hearts, our minds and our beliefs?
And yet, when we are able to change from within, which is always change by intention, that’s when we stand to gain the most from change. That’s when we are able to take the biggest steps forward and create the lives and the universe we truly desire. And that’s when change becomes transformational.

june-morrowsquareSTRIPPING AWAY THE FEAR. June Morrow was a 29-year old stripper with no career prospects and little self-esteem. A chance encounter with a newsletter changed all that, sending her on a journey of self-discovery and, ultimately, the career of her dreams. June is now a communications consultant, writer, speaker and facilitator. She regularly helps people experience more joy, energy and connection in their lives through articles, workshops, small-group coaching and videos. She also is writing 'Love Lessons from a Lap Dancer', a dating guide for women, based on her scintillating past.
timhursonsquareLOOK. LOOK AGAIN. Some years ago, Tim Hurson shocked himself. His instinctive reaction to a situation was beyond inappropriate, and yet the incident itself was small… so small that he could have passed over it without a second thought—or a second look. Had he been distracted by the ordinary goings on of life, or the chatter in his head, he might have missed the moment entirely. In the parallax of time, the simple act looking again became ‘everything’. Tim is founder of the Mindcamp creativity retreat north of Toronto. His book, Think Better, on creative thinking, is used in 100s of universities and b-schools globally. His book Never Be Closing, on ethical selling, was named by Oprah Winfrey as one of 2015’s best self-improvement books. He’s now writing two new books, ‘Simple Magic’ about the skill of looking again, and ‘Til’, a sci-fi story.
