    Making Decisions

    It is not about making a good or bad decision. It is also not about making the right decision. We never know how our lives would have turned out if we had made a different decision. It simply makes it the decision you need to take at that very moment to be congruent with who you are and what you want in life.

    Books that can give you the power to change your life

    Books have been such an important part of my life, and have played such a monumental role throughout history. As a child I was always stuck in a book, usually the Famous Five or Thouroughbred series. These days I am more inclined to choose books that can open my mind to new ideas or ways of being. Below is a list of my favourite books that I believe have made a huge impact on my life.

    Favourite quotations from The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle

    The Power of Now is definitely on my list of life changing books. I refer to it again and again when I feel caught up in my thoughts or fears. You don't need to re-read the whole book, just open the book on any page and read a paragraph or so to help bring you back to the present. Here are some of my favourite quotes.

    Trust is a way of being

    Trust is a way of being – written by Torsten Lueddecke Part 1: Trusting yourself and the natural flow and evolvement of life The definition of trust is “the reliance on the integrity, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something”. Please notice: It is about the innate qualities of someone or something, not about certain outcomes or behaviours. In other words: Trust does not mean, shit is no longer happening. Most of us go through life and “lose“ trust, because shit is happening or we feel disappointment when our expectations in someone or something are not met.  Sound familiar? It is certainly true that events and people often don’t measure…

    Be yourself. Be happy. Be free ❤

    “You cannot please everyone and you shouldn’t try to. You will lose yourself in the maze of what everyone else wants from or for you. One day you’ll wake up and see a stranger staring back at you in the mirror. You’ll wonder who you are when you take away everything people have made you to be. Don’t do that to yourself. Don’t carry that kind of burden around for the rest of your life. Be who you are. Love what makes you who you are. Give yourself time to discover who you want to be and what you’d like to do. Don’t let anyone else take the reigns of…

    Seven Foundations of Personal Power

    Seven foundations of personal power by Torsten Lueddecke. The way you show up in life has to be congruent with who you are. This is the essence of personal power. Living a life where you are fully and unapologetically expressing all of who you are. The principle is easy. Every time you make a decision and take an action and you feel empowered and at peace – this is who you are. If you don’t feel that way, correct your course until you do.

    Three dimensions of Personal Freedom

    The Three Dimensions of Personal Freedom – written by Torsten Lueddecke Introduction: Let us start with the obvious. Not so obvious, but the first person to restrict your freedom is yourself. The way you define yourself, see yourself and characterize yourself is a massive restriction of your freedom as you don’t allow yourself to show up any other way. The second dimension of personal freedom, “freedom from social convention” seems obvious but is so all-dominant than we are to question the very foundations of what we think and what we do.  Once we have dealt with ourselves and the society we were born into, we finally tackle spacetime. The way we move…

    Eliminate stress by operating from a place of being

    Eliminate stress forever and have complete peace of mind… by operating from a place of “being“ rather than “doing & having“ – Torsten Lueddecke Perceived stress is normally associated with either high workload, expectations (that we experience as pressure) or worries and concerns that we have. This is focusing our minds on “Doing” and “Having”. 1) Doing: The complete list of what we think we have “to do”, 2) Having: All our expectations of “having” certain results and outcomes in life. This includes worries, as we worry that our future might not “have” the desired outcome. If we let go of our mental focus on “doing & having“ and instead focus…

    Overcome these 6 obstacles to Mindfulness by Joe Wilner

    “Imagine what it would be like to really live moment by moment. To be fully immersed in what you’re doing and not be consumed with future desires or past regrets. It’s easy to get lost in the past or caught up in hopes for the future. Not that focusing on either of these is a problem, but often the most joy and contentment comes when we are engaged in what is happening right now! Further, when we live in the moment we can stay more focused on living intentionally. We can make choices deliberately instead of based on impulsive reactions. Success is a day by day achievement. Don’t let your…
