 My Story

I Spent 7 Years (yes, 7 years) in High School
Before I Learned the Keys to Academic Success and Happy and Successful Living!

Can you imaging spending 7 years in high school? And to boot, the Head of Guidance told me I should quit school, “You’re just wasting your time!”

I didn”t quit! Instead, I proved her wrong! What is more I became the Head of Guidance at a high school!

I wasn’t “wasting my time; I was biding my time! I was going through a long period of depression that few knew about, including my family. I would have quit school except I didn’t know what to do with myself. I knew I didn’t want to follow in my father’s footsteps like my eldest brother did, although he was a great Dad and I had a super big brother. I simply wasn’t interested in construction. I didn’t want a career in retail either even though a close friend of my parents offered to train me to take over from him as head of the music department of a major department store chain where I was already having a degree of success. Nor did I want anything to do with the auto industry in which my two other brothers had happily found their niche.

I decided to go to the local teachers’ college but for the wrong reasons:

  • Many of my friends were going.
  • The college was close to home and I could graduate in one year.
  • They paid my tuition.
  • At the time, if you had a heartbeat you could get a teaching job somewhere in Ontario even if it was in the far north.

At Teachers’ College, however, everything changed! My first practice-teaching class was a group of grade ones. My assignment was to teach them the letter C. Paradoxically, I got a “C”. Even so, I was so taken with the children’s desire to learn and had so much fun interacting with the youngsters, that I knew teaching was the career for me! I knew, too, that if I was to get anywhere I’d have to become a serious student: something I had never been. And a student I became!

That year changed my life. I acquired a thirst for learning and became a successful, award-winning teacher and author. I went on to earn a Master’s degree in education and to study for my doctorate in counselling. Ironically, at the terminus of my career I was the Head of Guidance in a high school. To be sure, I never told any student “You’re just wasting your time.”

Now I’m a happily married father and grandfather, ordained minister, entrepreneur, author, and professional speaker. Unlike the indifferent “7-Year-Man” I used to be, I’m an award-winning scholar. I’ve written five books, consulted and written for television, was Contributing Editor of a professional teaching magazine, was a College Professor, university teacher, and have earned a six-figure income. What is more, I have completed one or more professional courses every year of my life since leaving high school and received straight A’s in my doctoral courses. What is more, I was a speaker for the Enlightened Millionaire Program of Mark Victor Hansen (of Chicken Soup for the Soul fame) and Robert Allen. While working for them, I learned a wealth of practical skills from some of the most recognized speakers in America. People like Jack Canfield, Janet and Chris Attwood, John Childers, Chief Denny, Marshall Sylver, Tom Painter, literary agent Gillian Manus, and many, many more including, of course, Mark Victor Hansen himself.

I even saw the fulfillment of a dream I’ve had since I began teaching: the building of a retreat center for training young people to be the leaders of tomorrow. You can check out what our team has done at www.jerichohouse.org.

I’ve retired now from full-time ministry and from teaching. However, I am still quit active. I am a Life-Coach (Genesis Online Therapy). And, I’m a police service Chaplain. I’ve even been skate boarding!! Clearly, I have learned how to achieve my goals. You can, too.
