“Everyone’s life is an autobiography…make yours worth reading”
Sam is not an actual monk, but his clients often treat him as a sage and in this interview, he relates a story about himself as a “difficult Monk” since he doesn’t tell his clients the answers to life questions, but rather, helps them explore who they are.
In this conversation, you’ll hear how he has managed mindfully to transform himself from a person who is focused on achieving success to someone who inspires others through his storytelling, guidance, and insights into human nature. That transformation occurred, “the moment I stopped thinking about what I’m doing, and focused on who I am.” And that my friends, is the Langauge of Mindfulness.
Sam Thiara is a professional who has created a personal journey as a speaker, storyteller, writer, educator, mentor, coach, entrepreneur, problem solver, and community activator.
His goal is to engage individuals in their personal and professional development, work with teams and organizations on alignment and the 45+ non-profits that he has worked with over the years. Presently, he teaches at the Beedie School of business, at Simon Fraser University and is also the Founder and Chief Motivating Officer at Ignite the Dream Coaching and Consulting, a platform that engages his audience to define their path. A key element is transformational practices where he has become an expert in career coaching (15-40 year old’s) with over 5,000 conversations to date and supporting teams and organizations. He has authored two books, one on storytelling and the other a travel memoir about his journey to India to find his ancestral roots with a faded photograph. He has also spoken at two different TEDx conferences.
