A little About Me
After suffering depression in his early 20’s with the break-up of his first love and spending a decade of ‘pushing’ on and ‘achieving’, David found himself, three weeks before his son’s birth, standing over his dead father, in the most horrific of circumstances, faced with what he felt were life’s last questions:
“Did I make a difference?” “Did I love fully?” “Did I make the most of my life?”
His intention to be happy with the answers led to tens of thousands of dollars and years of personal development training, seminars and courses and, for a while, it worked. With a great career, beautiful wife and three gorgeous children, he had it all. But, within just a few years, he found himself experiencing lack of clarity and direction, anxiety, frustration, lack of confidence, depression, disconnection, blaming the world and all that’s in it for his moods, lack of motivation and enthusiasm. He plato’d!
It wasn’t until he studied high performance and ways to reach heightened and sustained levels of performance, that he really began to identify the areas in his life’s arenas that were out of balance and required real attention. This led to his own personal breakthroughs and ultimately to his life’s purpose of helping others get Clarity, gain Confidence and experience deep Connection. He spent the next decade researching psychology and leadership, and how to become a high performer in all of life’s arenas as opposed to simply ‘achieving’.
So after two decades of working and living in many different countries around the world, high achieving in Oil and Gas Projects combined with a decade of dedicating his learning to high performance habits, it was now time for David to step out on his own and become an in-demand Certified High Performance Coach, Entrepreneur and online marketer with a deep passion for philanthropy, giving back, coaching, mentoring and training others by helping them to reach heightened and sustained levels of performance, potential and happiness in their life.
“The real story is that I’ve woken up every day for over a decade with a solid and soul-driven intention to make a difference, fully love, and live my best life. The untold story perhaps is that I’m just human. I have tough days. I’ve made a lot of mistakes, failed and failed and joyously failed on my surprising journey, BUT, the path to mastery is forged with struggle.”
“If all I have done is inspire others to find Clarity, Confidence & Connection – simply because I have worked at those things in my life – then all is good, and I feel blessed.”
Making his mission to positively impact millions of people, David founded his company You Can Group and Co-Founded Inspiring Leaders with the vision to bring coaching, mentoring and training to business owners, entrepreneurs, executives and athletes knowing that ripple effects of positive change and impact could be created.
“Many people can tell you what to do, but few have done it themselves. With a passion to role model and demonstrate to others how to improve their lives and make their greatest difference in the world – I will make the difference right there!”
