I know what I’m talking about

The entrepreneurs and professionals I work with all have one thing in common: they have lost touch with their true selves. Often they have no idea anymore what they really want in life. And when they do know, they don’t succeed in getting it done.

As their environment achieves one success after another, they are trapped in a vicious circle in which all their wonderful plans fail due to a lack of focus and self-confidence.

And yes, I can relate to that all too well.

I didn’t see that scooter coming

And he didn’t see me either. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have been banged up so bad. After I was discharged from the Vietnamese hospital, I rented a small room.

No family or friends to help me. All alone in the middle of a super hectic city with millions of people. If I couldn’t sleep at night, I’d hear the city life: horns, people shouting, music.

I vividly remember that on such a wakeful night an enormous peace suddenly came over me. Because what else could I do but surrender myself to the situation? I decided to trust the calm undercurrent of life to take care of me no matter what.

Before that, I lived in a Tibetan monastery for 6 months

That confidence did not come out of the blue. Just before that, I had gone on a journey of self-discovery. I wanted to go somewhere I couldn’t run from. Eventually, I ended up in a small monastery in southeastern Tibet.

Not exactly luxurious. Purely back to basics. I 100% followed the rhythm of the monks. Meaning: sleep, meditate, eat, work, meditate, sleep, and so on. There, I solely worked on myself and learned a great deal. About surrender and acceptance. And especially about myself.

I did not meet the external expectations

I grew up in a perfectly fine family. My siblings were gifted and went to university. Cum laude, you know. And I? I was dyslexic, although it wasn’t called that at the time. I struggled to keep up.

No one saw my constant sense of failing, of not being good enough. I always tried to be just like them. Meet the expectations of school, the outside world, and home. Which of course I couldn’t. In fact, I internalized all those negative judgments and really started to believe that I couldn’t do anything.

Yet, later on, I pursued a college degree and eventually my MBA. But then, shortly before I turned 40, when l lost my father, my sister, and also my well-paying job, I found myself in a really dark place. I no longer knew who I was and what I wanted. That’s when my journey of self-discovery began.

Immersed in the knowledge of the best teachers for 8 years – and still learning

From my mentors in Asia, it was a small step to other teachers and trainers around the world. Each and everyone specialized in the development of human potential, each with their own approach. And when I got home, I continued with that.

I consider myself lucky to have found the strength and wisdom within myself. I freed myself from the shackles that kept me from feeling completely free for so long. Finally, I can live the life that suits me.

My life has radically changed

That is why I started my practice as a mental transformation coach. To help others realize that they don’t have to become anything other than what they already are. Because that trust and that power are very close – simply in yourself.

The result of my life experience and the education and training I have followed will shine through in the Full Potential Academy.
