Philosophy

Passion

Passion is energy. To find passion, you have to look inward.’
If you look outward, all you will see is what other people are doing.
You are not other people.

At the end of the day, life is not about your degree, how you look or how much money you make. It’s about if you are where you truly want to be, doing what you believe is meaningful.

Fear

“Fear is not to be feared. Fear usually starts with a thought of something that might or might not happen in the future. It’s just a thought, and you are not your thoughts.

Fear is a natural part of life. It will tell you when and where to focus. Sometimes fear is a main motivation to do or not do certain things. It will tell you a lot about yourself if you allow yourself to look into your fear. 

Knowledge and experience

You can read and study as much as you want. You can look deeply into the most complex of sports and subjects, spend hours on the internet and details, making months or years of plans. 

Don’t just watch life passing by. There is nothing like the real experience, taking the risk, being present and alive.  

Compassion

“I believe that one key to happiness is to be compassionate towards yourself, your body and to others. If you are strong, rich or knowledgable in some way, you may want help the ones in need. We all have abilities and ways to help. Part of the world is the way it is because of selfishness, greed and ignorance. Please be compassionate, take care of yourself, enjoy life, enjoy nature and share what you have with others”.

Words and silence

“Words have power. I believe in using words wisely. Once you’ve said something you can never put it back in again. There’s an old sufi-advice of wisdom to let what you want to say pass through these gates of speech before you say it: Is it true? Is it necessary? Is it beneficial? Is it kind?

I also believe in silence. When you are silent in both speech and mind you will hear and understand much more”.

Complaining is a luxury

I believe one of the most negative and life/thought-depressing activities is to complain. It’s especially nerve-wracking to complain about things you can’t do anything about, such as the past or the weather.
