Meet David

david hennessey

Hi, I’m David Hennessey and here a bit about me and my family.

In 2009 I moved to France from Canada with my young family to quickly help a friend who needed us to be present as her health was declining. The decision to move came from the heart but in the process I lost my work since I did not speak the local language, I lost my income since I had no work and I lost my sense of fulfillment in life since all I knew was not applicable in my new homeland. Then during the time of transition to living in France my dear Dad died. Then my friend died and another close friend died. Then I was in 3 accidents…. I better stop sharing… although there is more.

Theses experiences hit me hard and deep and I felt lost in France. I almost felt like giving up but then one day lying down unable to move due to a back injury I remembered the secret promise I had given to my Dad to continue to take his dream and my dream to all who could benefit from our experience: to teach people how to build habits to make them resilient in face of anything.

Below is a more personal video about how my Dad inspired me to do the work I do. It is an unedited, emotional sharing from myself. I miss my Dad.

So I decided I did not want to give up. I decided knowing is nothing, doing is everything and did what I knew to get back on my feet.

My heart goes out to anyone experiencing stress so since my Dad died I re-engaged my mission to never give up helping other people become more resilient so they can live a healthier, happier life.

I knew I had to learn a new language, create work opportunities, understand a new culture,  support my young family and manage my stress and well being so I could keep strong! I knew I could do it. I knew I needed to become stress proof!

It has been a bumpy road and there have been more bumps since the ones noted above so I have learned a lot about being resilient. Today my life is now step by step getting better. Currently, I am living in a French village in the South of France and my growing children are healthy!

Inside my current home in France

“Sooner than we anticipate we are going to have more stress in our lives due the advancement of automation and A.I. Our ability to be resilient and manage change and be emotional centered will be an essential skill.” – David

What you may not know about me:

When I moved to France in 2009 I spoke no French. Now I am fluent. I learned through conversation.

I have traveled to over 23 countries and lived in 3. I have hiked in the Himalayas, so much fun : )

I have just completed a hike this year that means now I have hiked the full length of the French Alps. The back injury is long since healed.

I want to die with an empty brain so all I have learned has helped other people.

One of my affirmations is …. Never give up, everything is possible.
