So on my quest to feel better, I do what has always worked for me, I have gotten active. I have pulled my sorry butt off my couch and have hiked everyday last week up at Big White Ski Resort and took to the hills around my home in Kelowna with a girlfriend yesterday. I have come to the conclusion that I can NO longer avoid the path to find out who I am and what I really want? As serendipity would have it….heck we can call it fate, God, purpose, I picked up a book I have had on my book shelf for the past 2 Christmas’ and started to read it. This book was written by a good friend of mine and I have not done any of the work suggested in it. I think my excellent ability of avoiding the deep truth of who and what I really am, is where my special skills really start to shine. Yes me the “Accountability Expert” is an avoider, a professional deflector!

So if you want to find more meaning in your life then take the “RELEASE Challenge” with me. My friend Darren Wride’s amazing book titled “Release – A Wilderness Adventure of the Soul” takes you on an outdoor trek and on that trek, you are asked questions to ponder and write about in your journal. With a promise that you will ignite the true you and your purpose and passion will spark something in you that will release your potential. Well, I am not sure about you, but according to my Chinese Horoscope, change is gonna come! Whether I am ready or not… I hope you join me on the journey.

Here is your first question to answer on your journey:

What are your roots – the key events and processes, good and bad, that have shaped you?

(Take the time to make a thorough list.)

If you are like me and can’t wait till next week for the next question, then order a copy of the book for yourself. It’s not expensive and you can get writing right away. To order this amazing book go to: You can listen to Darren and order his book and get a free handouts too. You will love this book.
