About Winspiration Day Vancouver

An annual, globally celebrated day dedicated to wellness and personal power is coming to Vancouver for the second consecutive year. This year’s focus is on finding the inspiration within. Be inspired! Be inspiring!

The first Winspiration Day started in 2003 in Frankfurt by a very successful businessperson, Wolfgang Sonnenburg. He was convinced that there was more to life than just the “business rat-race”. He knew that the world would be a better place if each person had a chance to truly maximize their own gifts and talents… He was certain that the “best is yet to come” if each one of us starts living our dreams today; thus the logo “WD – tomorrow today”.

Winspiration Day became a global event when Mr Sonnenburg and the Winspiration Org partnered with international inspirational icon, Bob Proctor of Proctor Gallagher Institute (based in the USA). Mr Proctor reached out to his global network to see who wanted to take this phenomenal concept globally, by hosting local events.

A Word From Winspiration Day Vancouver’s
Organizer Doris Orr

In all the 25 years that I’ve been in the business world as a chartered accountant, I have seen people – including myself – getting caught up in the “business rat-race” and rushing and experiencing stress and settling for a life of merely existing. This is a far cry from living a truly fulfilled life in which each person truly lives their life based on a true connection with their strongest strengths and gifts and talents. As Dr. Suess wisely said “why fit in when you were born to stand out?”

Seems to me that too many of us – including me – have been trying to live up to society’s expectations of us – rather than follow the beat of our own unique drummer.

Now that I am in my early 50’s, I focus on leaving a legacy and I know that each one of us – including me – has so many under-utilized (or un-utilized) gifts and talents. If each one of us values and honours and gets excited about what makes us “uniquely me” then we will each live a richer and healthier life and thereby make the world a better place – “tomorrow today”…!

This is personal power

The wellness part of our Winspiration Day recognizes that we need to be well before we can take ourselves to the next level…of being our best selves.

My personal strengths and gifts includes being a Maximizer (helping people maximize their potential) and an Activator (“just do it”, using the Nike logo).

So, it is a natural step for me to bring this global initiative to Vancouver!

In summary, this is not just another wellness day. It is a day to recognize that wellness is the foundation needed for us to achieve and realize and enjoy our personal power.
