Did you have a new years resolution. Come on, not a tiny one?
So how is that one going?
Maybe not so good?
Here I have an idea. In fact, its not my idea, I borrowed it from Mike Mandel. As so often simplifying will help your unconscious to have a clear direction what to aim for. So the resolution consists of one word only.
Most likely that word is some kind of nominalization, a verb that you turn into a noun. Mine for example is „sailing“.
Normally a nominalisation can become a bit of a problem in communication because every person interpretates it different. In this case that’s no problem. It is your word and you are the only one who decides what you fill it with and your unconsciousness already knows.
You’ll include that one word into your morning routine, your decision taking process, your meditation, your prayer, whatever you do to keep yourself focused.
This word will start to give you a clear direction. You will start to take decisions that will clear up the path to living your goal.
Who is the fool, the fool or the fool who follows the fool. I read plenty about people who complain about ignorant people at the top and there are for sure enough of them. To mention a few of them:
Especially with Bolzanero being sworn into office at the beginning of this month I read a couple of articles about the world being doomed by the powerful few.
The few who are in control of the media.
The few who control the 100 companies who produce 50% of the worldwide emissions.
The few who produce the weapons that kill so many.
The few who control most of the money.
But guess what, you can’t take over power by yourself. Power is always something that others give to you. Sounds weird? Well let us look at most of the political figures I mentioned at the top. All of them where elected in a democratic progress.
You might argue that they mislead the public with desinformation or that they used injustice in the democratic process, but in the end they somehow played by the rules and a major part of the population wanted them as their leader.
If no one wanted them in the first place, they wouldn’t be where they are right now.
Same for the companies. Ok, they make money with what they are doing, BUT
- 1. no company takes decisions, its always people behind each decision.
- 2. If nobody would work for the company, they couldn’t produce and they couldn’t make money.
- 3. Furthermore somebody has to buy their products. And once again, it’s the buyers free choice to buy or not to buy.
Same with the weapon industry.
And last but not least we would always have the chance to elect politicians who create laws that would limit those activities. Now I can already hear people complain, that there are no good politician and/or that the ones with good opinion and uncorrupted minds don’t have a chance because they will be discriminated by big bussiness.
Once again, if a majority would vote different tables would turn. It is up to you and every single one of us. If we won’t have a change in politics or in society it is due to a lack of willingness to change among all of us.
Be the change you want to see in the world.
I am finally done planning the Kilimanjaro Tour 2019.
While I already communicated the idea and the rough dates before, the planning has finished now.
The Kilimanjaro Tour 2019 will take place from June 1st to 16th 2019.
Except for summiting Kilimanjaro this tour has something special to offer: It will be a double summit. Meru & Kili. We will hike for 10 days in total with a 2 days break in between because the first 4 days will be a summit of the neighboring Mt Meru followed by 6 days on Mt Kilimanjaro.
You might wonder why I am planning to offer a Kilimanjaro tour in 2019 and haven’t done that much earlier.
The simple reason is that I received my initial inspiration and advice while becoming a coach from a friend who offered Kilimanjaro tours himself. For me it was crystal clear to not interfere with a similar product as long as he is offering the same. I never tried to become a copy and never did. I had to go my own way and learned my lessons in Sahara over the last years. As my friend suddenly announced to discontinue his Kili tours, I was asked by someone who planned to go with him in the first place if we wouldn’t go together. After all had I several years of experience in Tanzania by now, visited the Kilimanjaro region before and flew multiple times just across the peak leaving me questioning when I will stand on that peak myself. Due to my experience in Tanzania I have a pretty good team to rely on by now.
When I was a child I was amazed by Africa. When I thought about it, three things came to my mind:
- Ngorongoro Crater
When I traveled South of the Sahara for the first time in my life, I visited Zanzibar, saw Kilimanjaro & Mt Meru, went to Serengeti & Ngorongoro and knew immediately that I will come back. Especially summiting Kilimanjaro has been on my bucket list ever since.
Why also Mt Meru?
Because it is the prettier route. While Kili is more abut the size and being the largest in Africa, the Meru is nicer to climb and offers the more spectacular view, especially a cloud free view on Kilimanjaro at sunrise. It is also less traveled and gives you a perfect acclimatization, for the altitude as well as for the culture. Even for me it is a culture clash, every single time that I visit East Africa.
Almost everything is different and I believe it would be a shame to let all that fascinating cultural experience be waisted by only joining the very touristic Kili ascendent. Let us enjoy land, people, culture and scenery some more days and get accustomed to the altitude on a slightly lower mountain. We will have better focus, concentration, joy and breath when starting the summit of the big one?
After all, it is about creating a lasting experience isn’t it?
Maybe only one tour?
I don’t know yet if it will be the spiritual journey that I am expecting. I am not and I will not be a travel agent. I do extraordinary self awareness seminars and I choose special places as the seminar place.
If I won’t feel a vibe as strong as in Sahara or if I am not at my best, I won’t do the tour again.
This is the main reason for the special price which will only be available this time. Either the price will go up to reasonable amount for a two week, life changing double summit coaching seminar or it will remain the only one I offer.
So if the Kili has been or your to do list, you might want to consider joining this time.
As I write this I am only accepting two more applications for the trip. So if you are thinking about it, hurry up.
special facts about this years team
We will go with a very experienced and nice guide Philemon on both tours, we will have a medical doctor with us who has experience in high altitude medicine and tropical medicine. She is also a fluent swahili speaker. I have several years business experience in Tanzania and we will have local backup support by my long time local manager and business partner.
I am sure it will be a blast. Let me know when you want to be on the team.
Happy new year to you.
Thank you for being a listener over the last year. As you might know, has it been a bit bumpy for me and I am sure that you are able to tell your own story about ups and downs.
Always remember that your ups can be somebody elses downs and vice versa.
Everything depends on the perspective. If you could change perspective things could look different and sometimes exactly that change of perspective is too difficult.
Now it gets really weird.
Even reality depends on perspective, whether you see a chair as a chair, wether you can look rigth through it or don’t see it at all depends on perspective. Even whether you see it as matter or only as energy depends on your perspective.
That means that all the images that you have in your mind are only reflection of the reality and when you want to solve a real problem you are always dealing with your own perspective, your own representation of reality and therefor it doesn’t matter if you deal with the problem or create a metaphor which is often way easier to change.
Give it a try.

Last week I talked about accepting help and just after I recorded that, help was offered again and gave me the opportunity to finally move to the new harbor. This left me thinking about help and human interaction in general.
We as human beings and as the human race can not really develop on our own. Some of us might need more contact and others less, but overall we all need contact and help and some point in our life.
We don’t really grow when we are alone. We need to get into contact with the outer world to find jour limits and to expand them. Interaction with other human beings, sharing knowledge and experience is one of the best ways to expand your horizon.
For some of us that is not as easy as for others, especially when financial or cultural boundaries are holding us back. This is where you can take action. You can reach out and help those who can use it most. Unconditional. Just helping because you can (and secretly knowing that it will all come back)
Therefor I founded KIDZ a year ago and I hope you will help me in helping others.

I know everything so much better than everybody else… Sometimes it feels like that from my perspective and I know it is not true. It might result from the fact that I am the only one living inside my head. I am the only only who can see life from my perspective and I feel as others are missing something (well… maybe they are missing my perspective).
In my life I combine these feeling with the strong desire for freedom. I want to be able to achieve everything I want on my own without needing permission. I don‘t want to be dependent, but be able to move, act and live without asking anybody about it.
Therefor I have the tendency to not ask for or accept any help.
But… receiving help, being thankful for it and offering help wherever you can will add to you life and is one step towards happiness.

As I am switching locations on a regular basis, I keep coming back to the Swiss Alps.
This doesn’t happen by accident, but because of the beauty of the region. So many people I talk to know the mountains only from the winter and the skiing resorts.
It is worth a visit in the summer when it is possible to explore the mountains by foot.
I don’t know of any other (de facto) capitol, where you can swim by the parlament because the river is so clean and within half an hour you are in the most beautiful nature.
As I am writing this it is already winter time. I thought it might be a good time to make some plans for the next summer.
Until then, enjoy the winter 😉
I lost something, or at least somebody lost something that was mine which could lead to my first question. What does it mean to be mine or what would I need to do to call something mine.
But that shall be the topic of another episode.
All my German Podcast episodes have been deleted by accident and the Podcast provider does not have any backups. This made me think about win and loss in life and what it actually means if something is not there anymore.
I became ver clear that you just need to look at the atomic or the energetic level to see that nothing is ever lost. It is only transferred to a different level. Nothing is ever gone, it is only somewhere else. That also means that now thought or no person is ever lost. They just don’t exist in the known form anymore.
They transferred into something new. That means in the contrary that every ending is aways the start of a new beginning as well. Whenever you lose something you will gain something else. Keep your eyes open what it might be.
Real man are not fearful, right?
I am not so sure about this. As fear is one the most natural feeling that was guaranteeing the survival of mankind for millenia, it is important to as well have fear, feel fear and even express fear.
It is a sign to us to be careful and cautious about somthing.
Way more important than the feeling itself is what you will do with it. As fear comes from deep inside, from your unconscious mind, it is a feeling that is trying to protect you as your unsconscious always wants your best
Unfortunately it only knows what is best based on what it already knows. That means for you, that every time that you leave your comfort zone fear pops up and tries to warn you of something. Growth only happens, when you leave your comfort zone every once in while and then it is up top you how you go on from there.
For you that means no growth without fear.
I shattered my comfort zone multiple times in the last weeks… but listen yourself.
