What are you passionate about? What has been your biggest struggles and toughest learnings? Which emotions are you resisting, and what are you afraid of? What is one thing you can do that would make you feel more alive and enthusiastic? What drives you crazy? What do you want to remember when you turn 65? 70? 99? How will you measure your life? How do you spend your money, time and energy?
My hope for you, is that you have the courage to be yourself fully, and that you dare to love, give and grow.
I do not believe in a "one size fits all" approach - but I do believe in the scientific proven tools to create resilience and joy. I do believe in our power to love, to give to each other and to grow - through gratitude, failure, curiosity, tough times, and experience.
I found this wonderful definition of success from Ralph Waldo Emerson the other day:
"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded."
And a bit about me ... One of the stories of my life will be my enthusiasm for social connection, how we affect each other, how our values, beliefs and emotions are contagious to the people around us. How can I bring joy to people and create a positive impact for as many as possible? If you want to know more about how I ended up here and my passion; look here
this is what I do ...
I work with many different people in all sorts of companies, sectors and walks of life. What is great with the challenges I'm working on is that they cover the human aspect, so basically it applies to all humans.
How we interpret the world, how we see our own role in comparison with the people we interact with. It's about knowing ourselves deeper so we can relate better to others. It's about finding a common ground - which fuels connection. When we connect with people on a deep level - empathy grows. When we let go of judgements and assumptions - thats where we can find our fascination and appreciation for the person in front of us. Curiosity and enthusiasm - two great ingredients for building and lifting the people we surround ourselves with - being at work, in our homes and families, with the neighbor or the bus driver or the man on the street. Wherever there is people, there is an opportunity to create a positive impact.
