struggles with Soundbite sentiments

struggles with Soundbite sentiments

“Just go for it”

“Live your best life”

“You have your whole life before you”


Why does well meaning advice and encouragement from the people around us seem to paralyze us with overwhelming burden rather than propel us into creative and life giving endeavours?


Sure we want to live our best life. 

Sure we want to become the best versions of ourselves. 

Sure we want to use what we’ve been given for the good of others.


But somehow soundbite sentiments don’t seem to capture the nuance of our particular situations.


I’ve found there are deeper challenges at play that hinder our progress. 

the challenge of CHOICE

the challenge of CHOICE

Today, possible career pathways include words like influencer, gamer, part-timer, traveler, and “slashies” (e.g. writer/gamer/author/activist). And that’s just to name a few. Globalized connections and technology advancements have given us the ability to peer into multitudes of new possibilities which has meant that our menu of career options has ballooned exponentially. And we all know the feeling when the menu is way too big: overwhelm.

That was my life for 20 years. I tried to do what others had told me would help. I attempted “cold turkey”, tried to keep myself busy on other things, read more scripture, asked for deliverance prayers, attended conferences and the list goes on. There may have been an initial burst of inspiration and yet I would inevitably return to my old ways. Despite the seeming “successes” of life I could hold up to those around me to make me feel like I’m not a complete failure, at my deepest core I felt lost and without hope. The fact I was a public Christian leader who others looked to for direction and guidance, honestly made it all the more confusing and complicated.

the challenge of comfort

the challenge of comfort

We are living at a time when systems and society are shaping us to become people of comfort. Or put another way, we are trained to avoid or medicate any forms of discomfort with the help of overly efficient apps, recreational pursuits, drugs (literally), pornography, self gratifying hookups and transactional relationships. Rather than face discomfort and grow from it, our default is to find comfort. Instead than applying our creativity to problem solving, we passively consume.

the challenge of comparison

the challenge of comparison

We are now comparing ourselves on a daily basis with people we have never met across other parts of the world versus a time when comparison was just with a neighbour or small village over decades. The result is we live with constant self doubt and constantly seek affirmation - even though we may be affirmed from a few close people around us.

it doesn't have to be that way for you

it doesn't have to be that way for you

Without any guidance to navigate these challenges, it makes sense why we may end up “‘riding the tide” and settling for a life of comfort or passionately fighting the tide initially only to find ourselves reverting back within a few moments or months. 


We then hear those voices of “what are you doing with your life?” or “just go for it” and the cycle kicks off again (with guilt and frustration now doubled). 


It doesn’t have to be that way for you. 


I’ve found through my own holistic life transformation journey (see here), that because the real challenge was at a deeper level, the change had to be at a deeper level. I realised that anything I had tried at the surface or superficial level, produced temporary short lived solutions.

I want to want to invite you into a once a year opportunity to join me an a handful of other men who are serious about changing the trajectory of their life. Through a mix of group and 1:1 coaching sessions, you will benefit from my years of transformative experience condensed into a four month breakthrough intensive.

  • Learn how to become aware of unhealthy coping practices and addictions that you may unknowingly turn to

  • Learn to stay on the edge of discomfort and grow in a healthy way

  • Learn to transform your mindset around money and learn how to use it in a way that aligns to your highest commitments

  • Learn how performance can mask your vulnerability and dangerously dictate your self worth

  • Learn to value sex as an extension of intimacy, as a beautiful expression of mutual intimacy and not a tool to simply satisfy cravings

  • Learn to live a life of deep commitment over a life of fleeting pleasures

  • Learn how to live with real accountability and why it's important not be left to your own devices

  • Learn how to develop true friendships that matter for life

  • Learn how to live with responsibility, learn how to live with joy and rediscover the importance of play in your life

The liveholystic "IMMERSION" Program

The liveholystic "IMMERSION" Program

While all my work with clients is at the deep transformation level, I created "Immersion" specifically for those at a crossroad in life and who desired to get the best of me including a behind the scenes look at how I approached all of life including business, relationships, creativity, personal health and spirituality.


Here are the key components of this 10 month all-of-life "Immersion" program.


  1. Development of your personal branding and profile for purposes of work and creative endeavors

  2. An individual project that tangibly connects your gifts to what the world needs e.g. Business, research, leadership or creative 

  3. An in-person experience in Vancouver, Canada with me including behind the scenes insight into my life and business

  4. Development of whole of life practices utilizing the LiveHolystic framework that will help you sustain health over the longer term 

  5. 1:1 mentoring/coaching sessions and collaborative input from other leaders to help you keep on track with your redesigned life and accompanying commitments

what others have said

what others have said

For as long as I could remember, it was so normal for me to feel hopeless and stuck. Whenever I was faced with the need to change my life, it felt like I had already tried everything and it felt like "this is as good as it gets". James was able to come alongside me on this journey, not just as someone who spoke life and encouragement, but as somebody who was careful in being real and honest with me. Nothing was ever simple throughout this process, but that was one of the reasons why I knew deep and lasting work was being done.

Jeremiah

Media Producer and Project Leader

James helped me understand myself holistically and I learnt to apply a new mindset, practices and tools that make me a better person. If you feel stuck in your struggles, I'd recommend you consider this program to approach your challenges from a different angle. Having James as a coach and facilitator makes an immense difference. He's gone through the same experiences and can speak from his own journey.
