Hi, I'm Wade Smith.
For over 24 years I served the Canadian Armed Forces, reaching a place among some of the elite. Life went on year after year but something was always missing - I felt hollow, incomplete. I planned, and anxiously anticipated, my next big thing year after year, always looking for lasting happiness on some podium or on a vacation. It never came, only brief moments of excitement or happiness . The brief spells of adrenaline, pleasure and endorphins were enough to get me through the next day, week, even the next year. Year after year. My reality sat heavy with me. This was the way it was going to be, the way it was, and the way it was to continue.
It wasn't just by blind luck that shortly before my retirement as a deep sea, bomb disposal diver (hoo-ya!), a close friend of mine introduced me to Accomplishment Coaching Coaches' Training Program. The introduction transformed (and saved) my life. How, you ask?
I participated in the year long program, and I worked closely with an ontological life coach. I developed a support team. Oh, it got messy, and my heart got cracked wide open. My heart shifted from hard-assery to bad-assery, and I learned to love myself again. Forgiveness, vulnerability, gratitude and courage aren't found in self help books, internet memes or motivational videos, they are found within! I took ownership of my shit, removed myself from the blame game, and started fresh in a world far away from ego, amid the simple beauty of humility, service, and integrity.
You may be able to tell that I am incredibly passionate about life coaching. It comes from a heart which believes you are whole, complete and awesome! Let's take a look at what is stopping you, your infinite possibilities and undiscovered gifts!
Empowerment to me is - ownership, choice, dancing in the moment, uniqueness, loving what you are doing, loving life. What does it mean to you?
I invite you to partner with me to discover your own fulfillment and the awaiting possibility. Be courageously who you are at your core, in your essence. Let's design the life you want to live.
