The more we learn that other people are just like us, the more we’ll be able to understand ourselves and these other people. More understanding leads to more empathy. More empathy will lead to more compassionate and meaningful connections between people all across the world. And that will lead to world peace…sort of…in the really really long term…but still; let our dreams be big!
2. Mentoring, supporting, teaching, and inspiring changemakers, innovators, troublemakers, and all other modern rebels with causes
It has taken me lots of trialling and errorring but I’ve realized that it is useless to try and change those that do not want to be changed. So that’s not what How It Is To Be You is about either. Instead, I aim to inspire, teach, and help those individuals, entrepreneurs, businesses, and institutions that are ready to take themselves to the next level.
To NOT feel like confused outcasts on the fringe of that what is considered ‘normal’ anymore. To NOT get sucked into the vortex of traditional success but instead to help them define success for themselves (and then build their lives and businesses around that new definition). To NOT succumb to normalizing that what they deep down feel is unacceptable. To NOT fear fear. Nor failure. But to help them see these elements of life as the guiding lights that they are.
In other words, to help those people that are willing and able to take accountability for their own lives and happiness by helping them carve out their own paths so they can lead happier and more fulfilled lives because of it.
3. Breaking the taboo around introspection, self-reflection, and the ‘dark side’ of being human
Let’s face it, being human is messy! And hard, and difficult, and beautiful, and amazing, and all sorts of confusing. And it’s all these things combined that make us us. That make us human. The moment we learn to see, acknowledge, feel, and embrace that, is the moment we can find our own inner peace. So let’s not shy away from our own inner beings, but instead make a conscious effort to look inward and grow ever bigger and more abundant because of it.
