“I was a classic workaholic. My work kept me from thinking about the emptiness I felt inside…
I had an outwardly perfect life – a wife and two children, a house in a desirable neighborhood, high income from a well-paying job, a member of senior leadership in multinational professional services firm in Canada and a well-respected member of the community. In order to maintain this façade I worked long hours at the office, and then brought more work home every evening and at weekends. I was chronically late home for dinner and missed my children’s school performances – I was a classic workaholic. My work kept me from thinking about the emptiness I felt inside.
When my children became teenagers all of the veneer started to peel off. My stress levels were through the roof and I could not cope with the added stress of parenting teens. I blamed my job, my co-workers, my upbringing and I became increasingly miserable. Fortunately I met Diederik Wolsak and spent a week at the Choose Again Centre, in Costa Rica.
In a very short time I was able to understand where my problems were coming from, take responsibility for my experience in life and change my way of thinking. The results for me were extraordinary. I became happier than I ever imagined I could be. All my relationships improved tremendously – with my wife, my children, parents, friends, and clients. My stress level came down to close to zero. I was able to effortlessly take on a more senior, global position in the firm, and when a sudden reorganization occurred I was able to take it in my stride – a very challenging situation for anyone. My only wish is that I could have learned these techniques sooner in my life, but better late than never!” - EA
