WALKING AWAY

First leaves are falling from the trees.
Down they go, the hot degrees.
Summer is slowly walking away.
But the memories stay.
It was a fantastic time.
I'm done with the rhyme.

Thank you very much sun!
See you soon for more fun!

NEW PROFILE PICTURE

​ Taken by Manuel Castelotte

"The simple act of paying attention can take you a long way."

TOO LATE!

"I am too old. It's too late"
Many people say that!

If you believe that, ok. Keep everything as it is. Everything is ok in your life? Then keep on believing it.
BUT
If you need some motivation! Be open to the story of "Ray Croc".
He was a sales man most of his life. Average, not very successful.
Until the age of 62, where he met two brothers of a family owned restaurant.
He saw a lot of potential in that business. Roc helped to improve the restaurant with his ideas.
The restaurant got more successful day by day!
Roc wanted to expand and be bigger. But the brothers weren't so enthusiastic about progress.
So Roc Croc went his own way and became the founder of the multibillion company Mc Donald's!

He started to build one of the biggest empires with 62! With almost no money.

Inspirational.
It's never too late.

There is also a movie about his story.
If you really interested to improve your life, you will find the name of the movie.
And in the end of the movie, he tells his secret. It's one word.​

"No object is mysterious. The mystery is your eye."

REJECTION

We all experience it in our personal and business life. Feels bad, right?

It doesn't need to feel bad! IF you change your perception.

When I was living in Los Angeles to study acting, I walked everyday to my school.
On the way there were always homeless people asking me for money.
In the US you can pay everywhere with your card, so I didn't take any cash with me.
When they asked me - I offered them one of my fruits: a banana. Many times.
They said: "NO!" all the time. Some even looked at me angry.
What's wrong with my banana?
Nothing!
A banana is notorious (vitamins & minerals) and makes happy (Tryptophan).
Look at the monkeys how happpy they are!
Should I feel bad if a hungry and unhappy man doesn't want a soloution?
No way!
It's the same with other things in life where we experience rejection.
Should we feel bad?
No!
We all have something to offer.
If many don't want your banana, someone will!
Sometimes a homeless accepted the banana with gratiude.
And even if NOBODY wants your banana: Then just enjoy it all by yourself.
If your business idea requieres to distribute bananas, then go where bananas are needed and appreciated.
And if you can't go there, then you have to adapt and give away beer.
Either case, don't feel bad about rejection.
It's not personal.
The rejection says more about the one who rejects, than the one who is rejected.

Bon Appetit!

CONNECTION

You know those moments, when you think about someone and then BOOM you get a message!
Do you think it's coincidence?
Psychology has an explantion:
We remember all the times when we got a message/call after we thought about someone.
But we do not remember the many other times when we thought about that person and did not receive a message.
So we think, there is a connection.
That's what psychology says.
I believe most of the time this is true.
But sometimes I think there is more - something which we can't explain, but we can feel it.
On Saturday, out of the blue, I was thinking about a person with a strong positive feeling.
There was no trigger, that could have caused thinking about that person.
Suddendly the thought was there.
And a few minutes after - I received a message. I do not believe in that moment, that it was a coincidence. No way!
On top of that: the sender of the message was in a car and sent me a picture of the rain.
Guess what!
When I received the message, I was in a car, too - with rain. 10.000 kilometers away on another continent.
Coincidence?
The only question is, who thought about the other person first. We will never know.

Life is incredible with all its mysteries!

STEP

When you have plans, there are many obstacles which slow you down.

Sometimes you stand still or even the circumstances push you back.
BUT every step forward and closer to your goal feels great and gives energy to keep on fighting.
You can achieve anything what you want.
The secret is to believing in it and never even think about giving up.
Many people give up even close to their goal. NO!

Each step forward closer to your goal is a SUCCESS!

"Run when you can, walk if you have to, crawl if you must - just never give up."

DREAM OR REALITY?

DREAM OR REALITY?

Did you ever in your life ask yourself this question?
I did today!
In the morning I got many fantastic news about my project!
It will help my career!
WOW.
You know, when you plant seeds - you won't see plants right away.
You have to nurture them and be patient.

One day you will see the results of your work and patience.

DO YOU LIKE THE RAIN?

When I used to live in Europe, I did not like it so much.

Because there is more rain and grey than sun and blue skies.
Living away in countries with a lot of sun and little rain:
NOW I love the rain.

The rain never changed, but I did.

SCREAM!

Let it all out!

Life is not easy, for non of us.
Even if we can face difficulties with a smile - some negativity comes in our system.
Today I was walking with my dad in nature.
We were talking about one of my projects.
I released all my negative emotions.
It feels great! People usually have problems expressing their anger or happiness.
But you should try it! Not just talking about something.
Really expressing how you feel.
Afterwards, you are fresh and positive again.
And maybe you find solutions for the problems, like I did.

LET IT ALL OUT!

With a friend or even alone in a car (with loud music) or in a forest.

"Life is pretty surreal and awesome."

SUPERPOWERS

We all have superpowers!
Do you know those moments, where you FEEL that someone is looking at you?
AND
Then you turn and it's true! You see that a person was looking at you intensly.

I saw that woman deep in though writing in her notebook.
She could not see me. The distance was more than 10 meters.
She could not hear me. She was listening to music.
BUT
She looked up and directly in my direction.
I was very focused on her.
She felt it!

It's fascinating. There is so much happening around us.
We have to be open and look for it!
With my camera I am more open to those things.
It's intense when you walk around for hours looking for good photo opportunities.


REALTY IS INTENSE!
