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.

How many years has it been running?

The first Winspiration Day (Win Day) started in 2003 in Frankfurt by a very successful businessperson, Wolfgang Sonnenburg.

Sonnenburg was convinced that there was more to life than just the “business rat-race.” 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.”
