The Man, The Myth, The Legend

Meet Johan

Hi! I’m Johan. I’m an educator, trainer, speaker, leader and entrepreneur from Gothenburg, Sweden who loves to teach, create and innovate. I haven’t worked a single day in my life.. I do what I love doing and are passionate about. I got myself a so called regular work “as a hobby” to have a new challenge within marketing. I do what I want to, not what I have to! People ask me if I would have chosen anything differently if I could relive my life again and the answer is NO. Every coin’s got a flip-side and there’s positive and negative events but I choose to flip the positive side and focus on that.

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... read more
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... read more
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... read more
