    WHAT'S COURAGE?

    Big question. But what I know is this: it’s a limitless topic and I loved to bath in it.   A little outtake: "Courage has many faces.Some think it's courageous to climb the Mount Everest. But how about a woman breaking up with her husband, facing some hard and adverse consequences, THAT's courageous. To speak your mind. To say no. To make a coming out, to let a tarantula climb your hand, to hold on to your principles, to face misfortune. To accept to be judged and critizised. All this is courageous. For the protagonist to go to Africa as well. We are all on different levels. Courage exists on different levels. Accept also, if you don't dare to do something then maybe it's just not important enough. Don't compare yourself with others. Stay on your level of courage and start working from there.“For myself, I have 3 big bold topics: Number 3: To live a life authenticallyNumber 2: To remove the maskNumber 1: To accept to be a beginner, to start over again  If you want to hear more and if you are interested that I take you on a safari to South Africa, while you can lean back and relax, just take 20 minutes to listen to my podcast. Yes, it will be your shortest Safari Trip ever. Take care my dear listener out there.My best wishes to you, AnnA Find Dories TAKE THE COURAGE Platform hereFeel free to leave a comment.

    THIS BOOK CHANGED MY LIFE

    This book has travelled with me to every place I have been in the last few years. Let’s look at some very valuable insights Dr. Philip Zimbardo and John Boyd have made. A little outtake: „In reevaluating how we think about time - since time is more valuable than money - we’re led to ask: are we really putting the right valuations on time? Are people with the biggest bank accounts truly the wealthiest people in the world? How wealthy is someone who spends all of his time making money but doesn't take the time to enjoy life? ….. A financial planner helps to determine our investment strategy based upon your personal investment goals - if only there were such a person to call Upton for investing time.“ Hahaha - well, that is exactly my job and my mission with this podcast. Every week I am inviting you to reevaluate your life and how you spend your time. I am so happy to do this. Now get yourself a cup of tea, lean back and enjoy this podcast episode..  Take care my dear listener out there.My best wishes to you, AnnA

    What's ambition ?

    I’m not the biggest fan of being ambitious. It scares me. I have something else that pushes me. Listen to this episode and you will find out what it is.  A little outtake: „I see ambition like an iceberg. When we look at it from far away, we only see the tip of the iceberg, where we believe that ambition is something we have to strive for. "If you want to get better at something, you need to be ambitious.“ It's taught us early to be ambitious, because we have the idea that ambitious people always get there, where they want to go. But if you start to come closer to the iceberg and you dig deeper, meaning looking at Ambition from different sides, say from the philosophical or psychological side or with a perspective of time, you start to see, that ambition isn't that glamorous at all.." Listen or watch the whole episode and find out what I did, when I was 17 years old and lived in the UK.  Take care my dear listener out there.My best wishes to you, AnnA

    What's intuition ?

    In the todays episode I will tell you a story that still gives me goosebumps when I think about it. And we explore how it feels when intuition comes knocking on your prefrontal cortex.  A little outtake: „How intuition functions, where it comes from - we don't know much about it yet. It's a mystical topic. Would I have believed it, if this night in Mexico wouldn't have happened? I don't know. But what I know is how to tell the difference between intuition and a false feeling.A false feeling is often bedded in fear or uncertainty. It's nervous energy with a chattering mind. And maybe even your body feels tight. Could feel like this: "Okay - I will take this decision. I will go for A. Yes. Or…or maybe not..? Is A really the good decision? Hmm…why not b?" Whenever it's like this, you should look at it a bit more profoundly. It could be the ego, fear or desire showing up. They are more like chatters. With intuition it's different. Intuition is very clean and pure. It comes, tells you the message and then it's gone again. In and out. When it shows up, you just know, without really knowing why you know. It gives us the ability to understand something directly without analytic reasoning, bringing the gap between the conscious and non-conscious parts of our mind. Intuition is pure clarity. There is no question about it; you just know. Like I did. At the beach in Mexico. It was a warm summer evening..." Listen or watch the whole episode to hear the story.  Take care my dear listener out there. Thank you for being here. Best wishes, AnnA

    DO YOU HAVE A PLAN?

    DO YOU HAVE A PLAN?

    You can watch the video episode here :

    https://youtu.be/yp4nO6gqh9Y

    What’s the plan for "after-COVID19" ?  

     After weeks of deep thinking, questioning and living the lockdown, I am feeling ready to create a „after-COVID19-plan“. 

    I have created a questionnaire with 5 simple questions which shall help you to avoid to fall back into the wheel of a hamster.  If you work with these questions, you will feel the direction you want to go in the future. They will motivate you to go with confidence into the re-opening. It's such a beautiful opportunity to see this as a huge chance for your life. 



    Outtake: "There is before COVID 19, and there is after COVID 19. The after is slowly slowly entering our lives. The governments are giving us new guidelines. All the different federations are making up new rules. Fact is, the society is bit by bit boosting up life again. Everyone is reacting to the "re-opening ". Don't you think it would be sad if we would just fall back into a system without trying to take benefit of all this and to make it better? I have created a questionary with only five questions to plan the upcoming times and to avoid falling back into the wheel of a hamster or as I call it, the tornado of life. 



    In the last weeks, we had to live a new way of life. Everything was closed, except for the supermarkets. Not allowed to be in a group with more than five people. 2 meters distance to every person you meet. Trying not to touch too many surfaces. A handful of planes leaving the airports where usually hundreds of them fly every single day. Kids homeschooling. Introducing the home office. The most crowded streets in the world empty! Every speech and conferences cancelled. People losing jobs and worst of it: people losing loved ones to a tiny little shitty virus. It's like a cheap science fiction movie. Most of us agree that the coronavirus is a wake-up call. Remember my question: is it enough to make a change? Do you think it's enough to take responsibility? I would like to say "I hope so "- but I don't believe in "hoping for something ". Just lazy people hope. I believe in doing. Even if it is "doing nothing ". And that is why now, it is the perfect time to create a plan to start to live a better life than before so that this COVID 19 makes sense. Shall we sit down and look at some critical questions?"



     You will be able to find the questionnaire as a document in the Member’s Club. Coming up very soon. 



    Enjoy your day and take care. AnnA

    WHAT’S THE MEANING OF LIFE?

    You can watch the video episode here :

    https://youtu.be/t78dlNmgtf8

    What’s the meaning of life?  

    In just 13 minutes I will talk about the misunderstandings of the meaning of life and how I finally found ways to „find“ it.



    Outtake: "There is this one big question. The question many of us fear and all different sorts of reactions have been monitored: people starting to tremble, others falling into the well of thoughts, some even throwing up, just by hearing this one question. Which is: „What’s the meaning of life?“

    How is your reaction?

    Do you know, that I felt guilty for years when I came across this question and it also took me a long time to finally be in peace with it? It started in school, as a teenager, when our teacher told us, that we find the meaning of life by asking the question: “ What do I care about?“ Dear me. My mind was searching nervously for an answer. Suddenly it was my turn: "What’s the meaning in life Anna?" I looked at him with questioning fearful eyes saying: „to enjoy life, maybe?“ He laughed and told us, that it is more than that. I went home, thought about it, but never came up with an answer for myself, more than: to enjoy life. But yes, I felt guilty. Because now I believed, that „meaning of life“ always has to be a contribution to something bigger."



    What is your meaning of life? Feel free to leave a comment.

    Have a safe week and take care.
