Real change starts with the small stuff

When we are unhappy about our life or dissatisfied we tend to want radical changes and we tend to want them NOW. But that is not usually how changes happen. Let’s say you want to tone your body. That will not happen overnight. You will start with some easy exercise and step up as your body gets used to the training.

All other changes can be made like this. Don’t be too hard on yourself. Instead of trying to change your whole life, improve one thing at a time. Take a broad area of discontent, figure out the one facet that really bugs you, then take action towards changing that one thing.

Let’s say there are issues in your relationship. Don’t try to change the relationship; instead pledge to yourself to remain calm when your partner forgets to close the toothpaste. Is it really important enough to ge in a fight for it and ruin the whole day? Get your own toothpaste and put it in a different place so yours is always the way you want it and let him or her do whatever they do. The less pressure there is the more likely it becomes that they will eventually follow suit.

Change that is made slowly, step by step has the greatest chance of success.

Keep changing. That is what our life is all about

Ongoing Personal Development with the Expert

Do we need another Self Development Program?

Let’s face it, with all the hundreds, no thousands, of personal development programs out there – does the world really need another one?

Despite the plethora of books and programs on this subject, there is still a lot of people who aren’t following the path of their dreams, who are not completely happy with the way their lives are going; people who know deep inside that they could do better and they are ready to go forward but just don’t know how to do it.

To be or not to be – the Choice is YOURS! is a Self Development System that will help you to break down your boundaries and really live the life of your dreams; whatever age you might be. It is always the right moment to take that vital step forward.

But why should you take this big step with me?
What qualifies me to give you advice?

My life and my love for it does (apart from my studies). Since an early age I have been aware that even small obstacles can stop us going anywhere and I didn’t like that. Instead I looked for and found practical ways to overcome my fears, doubts and other hurdles and have shared my findings with – first my friends, later my local clients and now I will share them also with YOU.

  • Do you ever procrastinate or have self doubts?

I imagine that the answer is yes. We all do, what makes the difference is how we deal with it.

  • Do you ever fail, stumble and fall?
Again the answer is – we all do. What makes the difference is how fast we get up again.

Am I perfect?

Far from it but I really love my life. It is the only one I have and I might as well live it happily, don’t you agree? You too have this Choice! You can create and live the life of your dreams and with my help will do so. Like you, I have days when things just don’t go right, but I never lose sight of my life’s purpose and mission – and with my guidance, you too will be able to build your “perfect” life.

So the answer is YES

This program is needed. It can make a visible difference in your life.

Unfortunately I am not a Genie, I can’t just give it to you as much as I would like to. Only you hold that power. Only you can commit to a path of change that will ultimately release your true potential and let you achieve all that you are capable of achieving in life. All I can do is guide you and be by your side when you want help.

The vital difference to any other Personal Development Program is that you will not get a book or CD and be left alone. NO – I will actually be there to “hold your hand” during the journey. We will personally meet live in our virtual Conference room on a regular basis to exchange ideas and solve your challenges and I will follow up on your development.

And I will not kid you. Even though it is simple, it is not an easy process. It requires you to reflect and change in some areas. And change is never easy. Nothing worthwhile ever is. But I am here with you, helping and encouraging – and yes, perhaps sometimes even bullying you along the path towards a fulfilled life, and a better, happier YOU.

Some say, change is hard work. I am nor sure if they are right because the end result really justifies the means; that much I can promise.

Are you ready to walk the path with me?

If your answer is YES – Then let’s get started right here and NOW!

I will see you inside!

To a great(er) life

Creating a better World – one Dream, one Vision at a Time!

PS. I like to work with small groups of individuals who are really serious about changing their lives for the better and I believe in giving back. That is why I think it is my obligation to share my findings with you. But be aware I cannot take on more than 100 coaching clients at a time! MAKE SURE YOU ARE ONE OF THEM.
10 % of ALL I make go directly to Charity organizations like
by helping yourself you are also helping them – a real win win for everybody

Take your Self Esteem Inventory

Self Confidence… that comfortable freedom to simply be yourself – absolutely certain that is more than good enough! A strong, healthy confidence is a warm reassuring feeling that in this life you can achieve pretty much all you want! The feeling that you can do whatever necessary to achieve your personal dreams!

Unfortunately most of us don’t have this strong belief in ourselves and our abilities. We have been mystified, one time or another and some very often, with conflicting beliefs. Maybe, when you were a child, some ‘authority’ figure ridiculed, embarrassed or scolded you. And you took that criticism too much to heart, as children tend to do because of their admiration of the adults around them they love.

You might even have heard your parents, grandparents or teachers say things like:
“You’re not good enough” or “You’re not smart enough” – maybe even, “You’ll never be able to…” or “You’ll never amount to anything.” These types of remarks coming from people we look up to can be very destructive for our self esteem.

It is not important how unreliable the source might have been or how misconceived the disparaging remarks were, they may still be making you feel a lack of confidence and low self-esteem today.

Furthermore, discouraging words spoken many years ago might lead you to find fault with many things you do and be overly critical with yourself.

Enough is enough!!!

Get yourself a journal and start each day by writing your strength, achievements and blessings down. You will be surprised how much you can come up with even though it might feel a little awkward at first. Concentrate purely on what works and leave the things that went wrong – now or in the past – behind.

The past is gone and cannot be changed. The future will come – whether we keep our disempowering beliefs or not. Today – NOW is the only time we can make a change and we can do that by starting to build our self esteem inventory!

Start NOW by writing at least 5 strength and achievements in your life down and then go out and get a journal so you can fill it in each day with a minimum of 3 of your personal blessings!

Give yourself the time. YOU ARE WORTH IT!
