Watch What Kind of Energy You Bring into a Room

 

What energy do you bring into the room (or situation)?

Huh? Is that important?

YES - absolutely.

This Saturday I experienced quite a backlash while not being aware of my own energy.

With quite some consequences.

The (almost magical) power of that and how to do it, I'm explaining here in this short video.

And as always: the first step is AWARENESS. As we cannot change what we don't even know....and then we're only surprised by or suffer from the results.

Let me know your experiences with that in the comments.

10 Strategies to Achieve MORE FASTER (part 2)

Welcome back! This is part two of how to achieve more, faster in the second half of 2019. In case you missed the first 5 strategies – here you can access them.

As a short recap, the first 5 tips were there to guide you in to levelling-up in your role, to create your battle-board, to attack the low-hanging fruit first, to establish the “done-by-one” approach and to send your ask/help/delegate e-mails first thing in the morning. For those who missed these I really encourage you to use the link above.

Just to put your mind to rest – I don’t ALWAYS apply all of those tools or stick to them religiously. I use what makes sense to me – and yes, there are days when I cannot manage to get the most important things done-by-one or there are also days, when something in my life keeps me so busy emotionally that I find it hard to level-up in my daily role.

(Self)Improvement is supposed to bring more peace of mind – not less

Are you a personal leader? Find out with these questions.

Quite honestly: 5 years ago I did not have a clue what Personal Leadership was. As I simply did not give it a thought. The definition that is.

Instinctively though I realized that there is something wrong with the way of how we learn to lead.

When I had just passed my mid-twenties and I worked for a start-up in the IT business (not that we called it like that 25 years ago) it was the first time that I managed a team. I had 3 people in a sales team to lead. And I failed miserably.

None of my team was in the slightest inspired by me and I had simply no idea what I was doing. Even when I read up about what I could do how and tested things out, it did only marginally get better. The second time around leading a team in a different organisation went better, still not great though.

Well, I could have assumed that I was simply a lousy leader. I realized later though, that I had started at the wrong end.

Start leadership at the right end 

What is the right end then?

Quite simple on one...

How alive are you?

energy perspective purpose Jan 20, 2019

The other day a friend sent me a video from one of those Indian gurus talking about parenting. Well, this ship has sailed for me, so I checked out what this guy had to say on other topics and came across another video, talking about the 3 things we should all do in the morning.

Arghh….another one of those “morning routine” things? Those really start to come out of my ears meanwhile. All those super disciplined people who trigger my bad conscious as I cannot seem to get all those little ducks in a row: 7.30 shower, get ready – tick, 8.00 Yoga - tick, 8.30 drink lemon water - tick, 8.35 plan the day - tick, 9.00 breakfast - tick…. you get my gist.

My days are far more chaotic. Sometimes yoga happens, sometimes not, I don’t shower every day (gasp) and do not do extensive planning every day….

I digress.

Do you live the life you want?

So – this video triggered something completely different when I listened to it, as it was NOT about a...

How To Unleash Your Super Powers

Have you ever wondered why some people just crush it and walk from one success to another, perform like crazy and seem to be even happier than the rest of us?

These people must have super powers, right? They were just lucky to be born like that.

Admittedly - we are all different - which is wonderful as it is. Have you ever felt a bit neglected or disadvantaged when it comes to the distribution of the good stuff? Or felt like this world is really unfair?

Let’s face it though, nobody is born with a bad or a good attitude or great skills or lousy ones. Or with being just positive or being negative.
Even if we are happy to state exactly that “Well, I’ve always been the half-glass-empty-person, can’t help it”. “I’m just not like that”, “I don’t have these powers other people have”. In fact you can, and you have - I’ll come back to that in a moment.

Some of us might even have gone through Myers Briggs...

10 Prerequisites To Make This Year Your Best. Ever

energy health vision Mar 21, 2017

Have you ever fantasized about making the next year the best you ever had? Like at New Year, or just because you started a new job or got married to the person you love most in this world.

In other words: when you either felt the pressure (things had been turning in circles for too long) or the enthusiasm for life was just swept you away, to make this wishful promise to yourself?

My healthiest year

Well, you’re not alone  - I just made this promise to myself. In many ways this is going to be my healthiest year ever. I am building up this business where my heart really is and I am determined to have the best relationships ever with the people I love and everybody else I am dealing with.

Now the big question is how can this dream become reality without it dying a slow and painful death over some weeks or months during which “the daily trials of life” catch up with us? What’s necessary to actually grow and come closer to the best version of ourselves...
