Your driving a car on a road. It’s a long way to your destination. You assume to know the journey to your destination well, because you have been told how its supposed to look and feel like by the voices around you. As you drive along, you become more and more assured that you really do know the journey and the landscapes that surround it. You go further and wonder about the scenery, like concrete your belief grows as the scenery is just as its supposed to be, just how the voices told you. Closing the destination, happy and backed with solid belief that the ride, the journey went just as expected, you become to realize that it only went so for one reason, because you expected it to. Almost at the finish line, you now have time to ponder about your journey. You take a deep breath, sit down, and think it through.
You are the car. The road is your lifespan. And the journey, the landscape and scenery is your imagination working its magic. You realize that you created the whole journey in your mind, following the voices, the guidance of the society around you. Even though you now know it was all your own creation, creation of your imagination, you see that the sceneries were limited by your expectations and landscapes paintings of beliefs that you didn’t exactly choose to believe, but were offered to your mind by the ever so loud voices along the way. Those voices so loudly playing the structures and rules of society. Endless tunes assuring you that the song they sing is the only reality there is.
But at the end you finally realize it all. You were the creator of this journey, scenery and landscapes, but it was never your own hand painting the picture. It was the hand of the voices. The society around you made you believe their reality was yours and you bought it. You bought a picture from the shelf of society, only to realize that you could have painted the most amazing one yourself. You understand now, that it is you that has all the power to create the most wonderful painting that has ever seen existence. Your future is yours, and empowered with your imagination you are capable to create limitlessly. Now, and forever.
When I lived in Tenerife 4 years ago, I bumped in to a beautiful wooden painting with these words on it. I immediately got it, because it resonated with my own beliefs in a beautiful way. Since then, a lot has happened in my life, yet I still cling to this wonderful Continue reading “Believe In Yourself With A Vision”→
The power of thoughts is highly underestimated in the society we live in. Or at least underrated. We don`t teach it to children in schools. We hardly talk about it. Yet, I think it is one of the most important factors in creating a blissful existence.
I grew up being, or at least wanting to be, the best in everything. I played a lot of sports, and was always the captain of the team, or the star of the golf course. My willpower was always strong. So strong that it led me to thrive in many areas in life since the early days. But little did I knew back then, that I had the thoughts running through my mind to thank for all the success.
Hi folkes! Been roadtripping around Europe for some weeks now, so I`ve been keeping some time of from writing as well. And I think writing, as any form of art, needs some input before a valuable output is able to come out. So here we go.
A lot is happening in my life right now. Moving from the lovely coast of Croatia to one of the northernmost points of my home country, Finland. Changes. As the summer turns to autumn, the flowers and the trees change their colors. So one could say, I`m in tune with the seasons because I`m also changing my colors by moving to Lapland.
I feel that the autumn comes with a beautiful sense I call the harvest. The summers are mostly quite hectic, in a sense that one might be partying a lot, working a lot, travelling and so on. Then comes the autumn, the harvest. For me, it`s always been about self reflecting. What have I learned through out the year? How can I now apply the things I have learned to better my life?
This year I have learned to take better care of myself, to set ambitious goals that help me daily to take the actions needed to become a better me.
I have learned that nothing comes easy. To make something happen, I need to put a lot more effort in the game if I`m really ought to succeed in any of my goals. Personal and business wise. I need to man up, quit fooling around and make myself proud by taking important action daily.
I have learned the importance of focus. By that I mean, if I set a goal to myself and go and get it, I need to quit thinking about everyone else fooling around, all the hassle of social media, all the unnecessary. And stay focused on the goals that I have set for myself and go get them.
To wrap this up. You live life and you learn. But what makes you either a better or a worse person after these experiences, is the way you choose apply what you have learned. You either choose to man up and grow, or you choose to ignore and complain. Either one you choose, it`s up to you.
What have you learned through out this year? And how are you going to apply these lessons to your life, to become a better, happier and healthier person?
I was recently very strict about writing and publishing an article everyday. Then, I flew back home to Finland for a working holiday. From one week off from work, I had 2 days at the cottage where I really didn`t have any meetings or other things related to work planned. I still felt like I should continue writing each and everyday. So I did. I wrote something. I actually forced myself to write an article. And it was great, because I realized how important it is to give yourself a break every once in a while.
Recently, Iv`e been on the move. And when I say move, it`s movement. Last three days in a nutshell:
Monday morning I wake up at 9:00, head up to a meeting in Lauttasaari, Helsinki. 11:00 o`clock, another great and hugely impactful meeting right behind the presidents castle downtown Helsinki. While driving the car back home, had a lovely talk with one of my favorite persons on this planet, my grandmother. And just for the record, I don`t say or write these things lighlty. If I say it, I mean it. My family is the most important factor in my life. My grandmother is the a sun that keeps on shining no matter what`s the weather.
Had amazing day yesterday in lovely Helsinki. Early morning started with meetings, after which I headed to a cozy espressohouse downtown to have breakfast and type in some work. Midday I saw a dear friend of mine, whom I haven`t seen in a year since he`s been travelling in Asia and I`ve been keeping it groovy in Croatia. Played chess, drank some vine and shared great moments. Thank you.
After, I headed to the last meeting of the day to Lauttasaari. It`s an island located 5 minutes away from downtown Helsinki. As I arrived to this lovely couples house, I couldn`t believe I was in Helsinki. There was apple trees and green all over the yard. All in all, it was a great evening full of laughter and nice conversation, a bit of designing the future of an upcoming project, accompanied with some wine and vegetarian dishes on the side. Thank you.
In this blog, I often talk about what I`m doing, and sometimes I think am I being too self-centered in my writing. But as I think of this, I`m doing this all because of you. I`m sharing the moments and experiences of my life with you in hope to inspire you to do whatever it is you love to do. And I`m very grateful to all of you out there reading these. You inspire me everyday to a better, stronger, healthier and hopefully one day a wiser human being. Thank you.
