happy#018 – open borders

I am traveling a lot and I see how much traveling helps my mind and my understanding to develop. When I open the news or even facebook I read about people whose biggest desire it seems to be to shut down the borders and isolate them from the rest of the world. As if this would change anything for the better.
Therefor this episode is a pledge to open the borders. Not only in your heads 😉

It is the simplicity of happiness that matters most.

When more is too much, it could mean it’s just right now. This show is about simplicity and ideas for more happiness. Interviews with people who have something interesting to say and personal stories by and from Florian Hornig (Floh).

happy#019 – failure

One of the events that can make the biggest difference for the positive in your life is a decent FAILURE. Fail often and fail early. And then? Keep learning from it. What makes a failure a failure is yourself. You could also regard it as a feedback from the universe and develop further.
Failures can become your life’s greatest learning experiences.

Look at at what you thought were failures and start learning! Now!

happy#020 – control

Neither are kids in control of their life nor do they think they are. Often they decide based on the situation and their feelings. And then they grow up. They learn, that mankind is dominated the nature and that we are in control. That it is just a question of right technique. Not being in control is soon regarded as a weakness and failure. The fear to lose control can become so great that some people forget or fear to live the life they dream of.
So let me tell you this: There is no such thing as control. Be a kid again! Control is only an illusion!

Have you ever thought about all the paper stuff that is in your cupboard? I talked so often about stuff you own and mentioned mostly clothes. But when you draw you attention to all the papers you own it can easily add up to several 100 pounds. Why do you keep it? Emotions? Important information?
You can enjoy all of that when it is digitalized as well. I am going to present you some tools that can help you become paperless…

The realization that you will eventually lose everything that you ever value in your life might either lead to a depression or can make you enjoy every moment in life.
Everything material object, even our bodies have a beginning and an end. Some things just last longer than others. One day either they or you are broken and it s up to you wether you suffer or the enjoy the time that you have.

happy#014 – are you god?

„Are you god?“ is not the question that I ask myself but the character in a short story I recently read. Since I wouldn’t consider myself a religious but more of a spiritual person. Sometimes it might help to see yourself as part of something bigger, to start treating everybody else as good as you would like to be treated yourself.

happy#016 – sleep

Whatever your goal is to achieve in life, you wont reach it if you don’t have enough energy. No matter how hard you train, you will refill energy when you are asleep. You pay more attention to your sleep, you’ll sleep better and you will reach more of your goal in a shorter time with less effort.

happy#011 – declutter

When you thinks about living a happy life, it makes sense to think about what brings value and joy to your life and what doesn’t. Do more and get more of what does and get rid of what does not. That is the simple underlying message of simplicity. Keep it simple and focused on what matters most. Your mind, your stuff your life.
In this episode I give you a very brief overview on 10 simple rules that can help to declutter and focus on the the things you love.

happy#010 – motivation

This is the first episode of the podcast that doesn’t deal with the story of me but gives some real advice. I start with the tool that caused the initial change in my life that keeps changing to the better ever since. It is called the ReissProfile and deals with basic desires of human psychology.
I am introducing the tool and give you an overview, about the 16 desires so that you might get a first feeling about them and may already be able to find out which is most dominant in your life, so you can understand yourself better and get a first idea how different others might feel in the very same situation, which can dramatically change your communication with them.

happy#009 – caveman lodge & snowboarding

After living a lifestyle that really seems to fit the story continues in East-Africa. Having seen the African wildlife and places of my childhood dreams was not enough. I stumbled upon a lifetime chance while sailing on the Indian Ocean. I went for it, enjoyed my first full summer in the swiss mountains, dealt with individual tragedies, learned a lesson about the important things in life and continued to view life positive.
I also explain the story of why this podcast is recorded in Zanzibar.

happy#008 – swiss mountains & stone town

Having moved to Switzerland my story continues with an adventurous trip to Sahara and East Africa, which was going to have a huge impact on my future. 
I learned that it is easy to lose the positive focus no matter how positive your life may look to the outside. Once again it shows, that it is not important what happens to you, but you think of it. Look at the bright side of life. That concept proved to be true in drowning Sahara as well.
I also experienced that it’s sometimes better to know the direction you are heading than having a goal itself. You might end up finding some wonderful places.

happy#007 – EMMA

Having experienced so many things I loved in 2013 I wanted more of it in 2014. Together with Judy we took the crazy decision to move out and hit the road with our 1971 Mercedes Bus called Emma. Eventually we kept on traveling for eight month and ended up in the Golden Village in Switzerland. In between we had seen some of the most beautiful places ever and learned some lessons for life.Having moved to Switzerland my story continues with an adventurous trip to Sahara and East Africa, which was going to have a huge impact on my future.

happy#004 – on my own in sahara

I leave the desert village M’Hamid EL Ghizlane to be on my own in the middle of that giant dust bowl one day later. Instead of being afraid I am at peace with myself. While doing the adventure of my life I realize that all I do is not so special after all. I loose my fear but have to discover other limits to my journey and stumble yet into another adventure.

happy#005 – the adventure continues

On my personal route to happiness, I had to travel some stoney roads. Today I am talking about how a failure could turn out to become the biggest adventure.
Life taught me, that is is not about what happens to you, but what you make of it.
I ended up, sitting on the roof of a truck for two weeks, saw more than I could have imagined and found enough time to think.

happy#006 – wanderlust & redefining work

Back in Berlin I had to fit in again. That didn’t work out and I started questioning it all. I was searching for something else than the normal routine and came to the conclusion that I had to do it my way. Sometimes frustration can lead to the most powerful changes, if you are able to look at it from the bright of life.

happy#003 – preparing for the desert

After finding out about my passion I was tracking it down looking for a way to live it. I came up with the adventure of my life. I had to prepare for more than half a year, but the important thing was doing something just for myself and nobody else. Furthermore I had to leave my comfort zone so far I could barely see it anymore. And this was still the prep time. Even more important to me was finding my smile again.
