About your mentor

Vincent Cheng

I felt shackled by expectations

As a young boy, I felt trapped, I couldn’t please my family. And so, from childhood, seeds of bondage were sown.

Getting an A+ on school exams was often met with a “Why didn’t you ask for extra credit assignments?”

How can you win with that kind of pressure?

Boyhood, for me, was one of rigor, rules, and no fun.

I was forced to study as much as possible, and when I wasn’t studying, I was compelled to practice music for till my fingers bled.

I didn’t have much hope for a brighter future. 

All of my examples reinforced the same message. Get good grades, a good degree, a good job, raise a family, retire, and then you will be happy

But as I looked around, I didn’t see this formula working.

People were miserable, and so was I.

They all worked from a place of fear and no happiness.

To escape my childhood circumstances, I created fantasy worlds in my head or played video games. There were very few friends that I could be myself around. I would sneak out after school and into the city to play magic cards; here, I got a glimpse into life with freedom and fun.

The burden of expectations only increased as I grew older. I got accepted to the most prestigious engineering school in Canada, where I learned that I could escape the drudgery of someone else’s plan for my life by partying.

Escapism became an unhealthy habit that wrecked my health.

It even began to affect my appearance.

Somehow I graduated with exceptional grades.

As a boy, each day I felt as if the life was sucked from my soul at my Catholic charter school, with the verbal and physical abuse inflicted by my teachers. And even though I was a prodigy at the piano, I had no interest because the soul was sucked out of the music too…

…and yet, somehow, later in lifeI learned to love music and rediscovered the heart in music and went on to conduct choirs and orchestra’s around the world; cherishing every moment.

How did I get from all that pain and suffering to where I am today?

I began my journey to rediscover myself, finding joy, fulfillment, and happiness when I learned the truth about what was holding me captive.

I was all in, I sold everything.
I took radical steps to grow.

Transformation started when I went to a Zen Buddhist monk in Japan. I discovered a way to heal the things from my childhood, let go of them, forgive the people who inflicted pain, to allow myself to be okay with myself–more so to love myself.

I didn't realize you could transform your life so quickly.

I learned to heal the deepest hurt inside of me. 

Giving my past and present self what it wanted and needed was life-altering.

You can’t imagine the how different my life looks now.

I went from ZERO TO INFINITY.

Who sells everything they have, books and books a trip to Europe to master conducting?

I was become the maestro.

Finally, I was in the driver’s seat of my life.

My purpose became clearer as time went on…

...create a process for
radical healing and growth.

And so the HEAL THE SOURCE™ method was developed to propel others to find the healing and freedom that I have.

When you HEAL THE SOURCE™,  you experience what true happiness, unbridled joy, fulfillment, and ultimate control feel like…true success.

Today, I experience a deep sense of meaning in everything I do and no longer rely on an “I’m proud of you” to motivate me.

I have unshackled from these limitations and am living a life of fulfillment…and even having fun along the way!

You can gain ultimate control, with meaning, adventure, and happiness.

You can realze your ultimate potential.

I want you to experience this radical transformation too.
