Everybody are afraid of getting old and I know why

Everybody are afraid of getting old and I know why

I just finished my 44th birthday and what a day. I made sure to not get to exited so I went to bed 3.30 the night before and got breakfast in bed at 8.30, same o’ same o’. I wont get into details for the entire day but it was great. Some party with the boy’s and lot’s of play. Short reflection how it feels to be 44 because the scared ones are quick to make a point about it. I only have to ask myself these three questions to reflect over. Did I Live? Did I Love? Did I Matter? As long as I can answer a honest YES on those questions I couldn’t care less on getting older from minute to minute, day to day or year to year. If you can’t answer a honest yes on those questions you will definitely be very worried of getting older because you’ve been wasting your time. DON’T wast your life I mean time 😉 Everyday when I get up I can feel my body and appreciate a little pain from old injuries and remember all the crazy stuff I’ve done with it because I LIVE. When I got back home tonight and went through literary hundreds of greetings on Facebook, emails and sms there’s a lot of friendship, connection and LOVE. How great isn’t that? Thank you! When I see how many people I’ve had the chance to meet, influence, share, teach and learn with/from/by I know I MATTER for more than just me and myself. I’m feeling better and better and it get’s more fun for every year. Hope you got inspired as...
Getting out of bed

Getting out of bed

When I wake up in the morning I feel eager to get started with the new day. I do work many late nights in the week and sometimes the sleep get little to short. That’s nothing I recommend because sleep is essential for a good life and that’s not what this post is about. It’s about what motivates you to get out of bed in the morning. Because if you have your life together you should be really exited to face the new day and everything you are about to do. Many people complain about that they had to get out of bed and they want to sleep more. Most adults need about 8h +/-1hour depending on circumstances. Don’t complain that you need to sleep more or that you don’t have the energy. I just don’t get it? I don’t want to sleep more I want to DO more. Every new day you get to meet your friends, your family and deal with challenges whatever they might be. This is what you and your life is all about and you better make sure it’s exciting. If you don’t feel motivated to get out of bed something is really wrong. You have to change whatever it is that bothers you or what it is you fear to face. Because that’s what this is about, it’s an escape from reality. YOUR REALITY! If your life isn’t what it’s supposed to be, CHANGE IT! Think through if there’s something you want to change in your life, and what you can do about it. If it feels overwhelming you can get support from...
Maintain Success with your Vehicle

Maintain Success with your Vehicle

If we buy a car many of us do some monthly payments for 3-5 years and then we own the car. After that we keep on bringing it to service, reconditioning and so on. So if you stop paying your dues you will loose your car and have nothing left, it will just be gone. And if you don’t take care of the necessary maintenance it will lose value and be worth nothing. This is no rocket science and everybody knows this. Most of us also know that our most important vehicle works the same. THE BODY! Our body needs to be taken care of on a regular basis. New skills or functions has to be learnt and practiced until we own it, and then it has to be maintained. If we begin with something without “paying” all the way through it will be gone. And if you go all the way through it still needs to be maintained properly. I’m fascinated how many people start new projects in life and then just quit or change as soon as there a little bit of resistance. Nobody would stop paying on the car because we know we’ll lose it, but many people stop taking care of their body or the new “maintenance program” they invested several years in. Isn’t that strange how we can prioritize material object before our most important vehicle we got? OUR BODY!! Same as if you switch car during the payment plan, you can do it but it will probably cost you a lot of money and extra effort. So if you change path all the...
Confidence without Comparison

Confidence without Comparison

Competition and comparisons are part of the world we live in and important for development and progression. When they are used for the right reasons they can be a really positive force. On the other hand they can be really negative in other contexts. People who starts to compare what they have with others will always be jealous. I’ve seen and experienced that many times and it’s very destructive. People starts to destroy good things just to get even or equal to whatever they are jealous about. By doing that it often develops a negative force or trend that brings everybody to a lower level. The “victory” ends up on the disastrous battle ground.   Battlefield Disaster When I was competing I did of course compare myself with others, during the fight. But for me it was always about my own standard. I always asked myself how I could raise my standard to the highest possible level. I didn’t hope that my opponents should have any cutbacks or such because then my own standard wouldn’t be worth as much. That attitude made me a world champion because at that time my standards where higher than the other competitors. Appreciate others success and use it as motivation for yourself to raise your standards. It doesn’t matter if it’s in business, competitions or with friends the “Winners” are the ones who have an exited attitude and join in on others success. STEP UP – GET EXITED – RAISE YOUR...
Do you need a coach?

Do you need a coach?

I’m fascinated about the fact that everybody seems to be a coach now days. Even the people who doesn’t have any results to show of previous success. In Sweden all unemployed can get a coach to get a job. Those coaches was recruited from the registered unemployment force with a lot of governmental funding, these people don’t know how to get a job.I see people who talk about success this and how to accomplish that and they haven’t even accomplished it themselves. That’s ridiculous. I often hear people give advices about relationships and they have a long list of unsuccessful relationships in the luggage. The only thing they know is how NOT TO DO IT! We all do mistakes and most people learn something by them. We try something else and then we succeed and can claim to have experience from the process. But before you have succeed there’s no proof for it. By success I mean the desired outcome. So when you feel in need of a coach, trainer, mentor, role model or whatever you want to call it, find someone who have been there done that. If they done what you want to achieve you copy their concept, if not don’t bother. If it’s a really good one they will coach you to do even better then their own success. Then you should listen carefully and you probably going to get their a lot faster by modeling their...
