Who am I?
Now that is a profound question. Most people are seeking the answer to that one their entire live. So am I… And let me tell you, telling my story online is somewhat out of my comfort zone, but hey, that is where success is, right?
Let me tell you what I know about me so far…
I was a happy kid. A leader. Maybe when you are seven they call it stubborn and pushy, but at least I thought of myself as a leader. Life was great and possibilities where endless! I knew for sure I was going to conquer the world!
But then reality kicked in when my parents divorced. I was 12 and I’ve never seen my father since…
That is a while ago now and in a space of time that it was not so common for parents to divorce. At least not in the tiny little village I was living in.
The next 25 years or so I spent my life in:
Denial. I was so ashamed… My loss was so painful that I thought that not talking about it at all would make it go away. But this caught up with me and then came anger and protest. And puberty. Not a good combination… I didn’t fall completely of the grid and after high school I got a job that paid me well. A job that I didn’t particularly like but hey, it paid good money. I got stuck in the ratrace and was living life in a negative attitude.
In 2008 I lost my job and got self employed, working together with the love of my live Marcel in his business. And I loved that! Absolutely definitely struggeling, but loved it [still do]. And it was in that time that I read somewhere ‘If you realize how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought again’.
I got fascinated by that. I turned my life around and started focussing on the positive. I started a journey of personal development. Resulting in the launch of this website, early 2013. Personal and business development rule my life. I am using seven2success to live a positive life and get the business results and success I want. Now I want to conquer the world again like when I was seven! And while doing that I share what I learn, read and everything that inspires me with you. You’ll find posts about happiness, motivation, inspiration, love and business.
Though I run this site, it is not mine. It’s ours. It’s not about me. It’s about us. Your experiences and your wisdom are just as meaningful and useful as mine. So please make a contribution with your knowledge and share! So we can learn from each other! Because…
Sharing is caring!
