You rarely feel happy when you have to purchase it, but if something ever goes wrong you are always glad you did.
When I was in my 20’s, I had started a business to put on extreme sport stunt shows and pursue my dream as a freestyle motocross rider.
After I performed my first show on Canada Day weekend, two weeks later, I crashed, and wished I had made a different decision just months earlier that could have literally supported me with several thousand dollars down the road.
If you’re in business, you too, might one day experience this with insurance…
New Year’s Eve, 1999.
There was panic setting in around what was going to when there were rumours that computers were not programmed properly to “tick past 1999, into 2000”, and as a result there was going to be chaos with businesses shut down, bank accounts frozen, and months before the problem could ever be rectified.

What I’d like to do is share with you a few mindset shifts to help you reframe your mind if you find yourself stuck worrying about other people’s highlight reel.
“None of this makes sense.”
Have you ever been there before?
You know, when you are stuck in a vicious cycle trying to understand what is happening in your life?
It can be incredibly difficult to make sense of things when chaos seems to be running rampant in all areas.
