How My Secret Journey From Suicide Survivor To
Karate World Champion Will Now Help Bring Out
The Life Champion In You


Dear Fellow Life Champion,

I could see it in their eyes, as people were looking at us, the surviving family at my mother's funeral.  Relatives, friends and strangers were probably thinking, "they've really hit rock bottom now - that's the end of them."

In effect, I was being 'counted out' in terms of achieving any sort of future success and happiness.  And in the back of my mind, I wondered if they were right.

But ... I'm getting ahead of myself.  My mother's suicide was just the tipping point.

For me, bumps in the road started WAY before my tragedy ...


Small + Asian + Nerdy = Constant Abuse + Racism

Easy Target For The School Bullies (oh yeah, the pipe was just a prop)  


Look at the photos above.  That's me when I was a kid - small, Asian and nerdy.  This made me an extremely easy target for the school bullies.  There wasn't a day that went by at school without being called a 'chink' and being physically threatened.  The constant abuse and racism resulted in a very tough childhood.

Home life was not much better with emotionally abusive parents as part of a very dysfunctional family.  My brother and I were always ridiculed in front of other relatives as well as family friends.  We also had to endure my parents constantly fighting out in the open. No wonder why I chose to spend so much time in my room. 

Although I never had to worry about clothing, food or shelter, I was becoming the product of a very unbalanced upbringing with NO confidence or self esteem at all.


Then A Hero Came Into My Life

Then one day in a movie theatre, I saw the late, great Bruce Lee for the very first time.  It was the famous scene where he took off his top and beat up all the bad guys in the Japanese karate dojo.  I had never seen an Asian man built like him and move like him before.  I was totally stunned and blown away by his presence on the screen. 

He was the much needed hero that came into my life and changed me forever!  From that moment on, my own negative image of myself as well as that of my own culture were erased for good.

My Own Martial Arts Journey


I suddenly felt a much higher potential for myself.  I wanted to be like Bruce Lee.  It was because of his influence that I started martial arts and it was through this training that I started my new journey in personal development.


Tragedy Strikes ...

Then in March of 1984, one month before my first semester MBA exams which was the most grueling academic program I've ever taken, my brother called me one morning and told me to come to their place right away.  When I got there, I saw my mother lying motionless on her bedroom floor. 

A policeman who rushed in soon after, found three empty vials in the bedroom.  My mother ended up taking three full vials of sleeping pills to take her own life.  This would actually be her second suicide attempt and this time, she was determined to be successful.

My father was sitting on the hallway floor losing it as a fireman was assisting him with an oxygen mask.  At that very moment, I knew that my family had hit rock bottom and that life would never be the same again


Then I Made A Decision That Would Change My Life Forever

However, almost immediately afterwards, I made a decision that would change my life forever.  I made a fully committed decision on the spot that I was NEVER to live my life as a victim.  In fact, I REFUSED to become a victim.

I was fully determined to continue my personal development in all areas of life to become a Life Champion despite what I went through so far.

Not only did I finish my MBA and have a successful 20 year corporate career, I also became a Master certified (NAUI) scuba diver and a certified (CSIA) ski instructor.

But perhaps what I'm known most for is a long successful martial arts competition career that spanned over 23 years which included the privilege of representing the Canadian National Team a few times and becoming a Karate World Champion (15 times).

Karate World Champion With Successful Martial Arts Competition Career


So What Does This All Have To Do With You?

So you might be asking the above question which is quite fair.  It turns out that despite what I've achieved so far, I'm nothing special.  I'm just a regular person who did certain things to become a Life Champion even though I was at rock bottom.  I'm living proof that anybody can become a Life Champion as well.

So let's explore how to bring out the Life Champion in YOU to overcome challenges and achieve enormous personal success.


But How Do We Become Life Champions?

image personal growth books motivational life champion in you clint cora

Health, Relationships, Careers/Money


The problem of course is that none of us were ever taught in school exactly HOW to create a life of purpose and passion

We spend our lives just going through the motions -- instead of living with purpose.  We end up like robots or zombies with our usual day in and day out routines that do NOT produce the real satisfaction that we truly desire. 

We get caught in traffic jams going to and from unfulfilling work only to come home to piles of chores.  We become numb and we get so busy with our responsibilities that we always run out of time for the important things in life


image personal growth books motivational life champion in you clint cora

No Time For Important
Things In Life


Without Life Purpose?  All Stressed Out?  No Motivation?

Some of us don't even know what our life purpose is and even if we do, we've been blown so far off course that living with purpose is a distant dream.

We're stressed out while there are not enough good things that come our way.  With recessions, climbing personal debt, job losses, disasters, high divorce rates and crime, many of us are just coping to get by emotionally and/or financially.  As a result, our relationships, careers, health and well-being all suffer.

We often cannot get motivated enough to make a difference.   We procrastinate and nothing really changes as the years go by. 


image personal growth books motivational life champion in you clint cora

Procrastination? Lack Of Motivation?


We're left with frustration and wonder if it's even possible to have a better life at all.  We've become mentally trapped in deep ditches that our minds have created.


I've Been There Just Like You Have

If any of this sounds like you, then I can certainly relate with this feeling.  Believe me, I've been there at rock bottom as you already know!  


That's Why I Finally Decided To Go Public With My Story

I've since realized that many people in this world are going through lots of the same types of hardships that I went through.  I also realized that many could benefit tremenously from the universal lessons from my journey.

So in 2009, twenty five years after my family tragedy, I decided to finally go with my story and document the important principles which made such a huge positive difference in my life.  It was no longer fair to keep these motivational secrets to myself!

I wanted to pull back the curtains on the exact changes, mind-shifts and action steps I took to go from tragedy to success as a Life Champion.

I wanted to share these universal lessons with others who could really benefit for their own lives.   So the result was, The Life Champion In You.
