You probably know “business” consultants in your circle of friends or people who give marketing advice to people who love their hobbies.

In the past, I was one of these consultants with good intentions. I thought that people with brilliant “results” in their hobbies should work self-employed. Self-employed seemed to be the solution to almost everything as I love(d) to work that way.

Therefore, I was a crusader for this type of occupation. Typical sentences were:

Facebook launched its stand-alone virtual reality goggles to make this new experience accessible to everyone.

On their website, they state that with their newest technologies, “virtual reality (VR) lets us explore new worlds, defy obstacles, and attempt the impossible.” And Facebook is not the only supplier.

The VR industry is one of the fastest-growing industries in the world. It serves companies professionally to better construct products by envisioning the result, but it also has major impacts on our personal daily lives.

Facebook’s vision and application spectrum of VR is vast:

“You can explore outer space, step inside history, and connect…

Spirituality offers you new perspectives, surprises you, and breaks some of the rules.

Three years ago, I heard about aura surgery, spiritual medium(s), and shamans for the first time. And all I could do was laughing and keeping the topics behind me.

The topics just didn’t resonate with me and I didn’t believe they could add any value to my life.

It was too far away from what I thought would be “normal.” I have to admit that I lived a quite “ordinary” life until late 2017.

Famous leaders and teachers, like Neale Donald Walsh, Ekkehart Tolle, Ken Honda, or even Mister Miyagi, agree that finding balance in life is crucial.

But as with all learning matters — it might be harder done than said, especially if you are at the beginning of your journey or might have lost your way.

The first step is identifying what forces influence your way of living; the second is to find your balance on your way.

Life is never a straight line, and for many, it is more like a pendulum with higher or lower amplitudes.

By reflecting on the…

My former martial arts and fencing teacher taught me an important lesson:

“You will learn or receive feedback from every action— it won’t matter if you fail or prevail.”

He was right. When “Cobra Kai” came out on Netflix — I remembered his words and felt the strong urge to watch one of my favorite movies of the eighties again: Karate Kid.

After watching the movie, I have to admit that I had a completely different film in mind.

I could not believe how many valuable and hidden life lessons were in the movie.

Everyone knows famous quotes by Einstein that grant a lot of insights into his miraculous mind. And just in case you haven’t had the opportunity to read any of his works, you might want to take a look at the following excerpt:

“We cannot solve the problems with the same mindset we used when we created them.”

“God does not gamble.”

“It is harder to shatter a ready-made opinion than an atom.”

“Fantasy is more important than wisdom as wisdom is limited.”

Albert Einstein (1879–1955) is a master in so many fields, and analyzing his quotes is a beautiful task…

Tracy is a phenomenal tiger. She was born in Germany in early 2020, and she developed quickly. She would be growing into a beautiful Siberian tiger.

Her birthplace was a recently updated zoo in Berlin. In her first days, she regularly saw new faces. Besides her mother, Diana, she saw creatures walking erectly on two paws.

And these creatures pressed their noses on the glass that separated them from her mother and herself.

Everyone was smiling. Tracy asked her mother who these smiling creatures were. Diana answered that these beings were called humans.

Tracy immediately decided to like these humans…

Soliloquizing is the ability to talk to yourself. And the critical word is “ability.” As you can train every ability, it also works for talking to yourself.

You might observe in your surroundings that most people criticize themselves when they procrastinate their to-do’s or haven’t changed their behavior yet. And this is perfectly fine if they change their behavior after having criticized themselves heavily for a considerable amount of time.

However, most people won’t change by self-criticism, no matter how hard the punishment is.

Nonetheless, as these people already talk to themselves — so why don’t they do it in…

Ths singer Garth Brooks was singing at the inauguration ceremony of President Biden. He sang the same song as Barack Obama did — “Amazing Grace.

By doing this, many reactionary fans displayed their hatred against him.

The performance showed how a united nation could look like — and who is against it as “Die Welt a German newspaper, brilliantly put it.,”

Garth who? For many Europeans, this name did not ring any bells. He was a man in jeans wearing a country hat, singing a song at the inauguration. But Barth Brooks sold more disks than the Beatles.

He is…

In 2020, our brains, souls, and bodies were put on a stern test. COVID-19 has brought countries, economies, and, most importantly, humans from driving full-throttle in 6th gear into reverse.

While a few could cope with the new situation, many people feel insecure, frightened, and don’t know what to do with their fears.

For many teachers, such as the NLP-expert Tony Robbins or Marc A. Pletzer, fear is nothing to be ashamed of. It is a behavior that protects you from bad experiences.

You probably know the term: a burned child avoids the fire. Therefore, fears are a good thing…
