How to Re-Program Your Subconscious Mind to Make This New Identity Real

How to reprogram your subconscious mind to make this new identity realDid you like last week’s how-to-guide to a new identity? How is the identity statement working for you? (Click here to read to “22 Seconds to a New Identity”.)

It has only been one week for most of you and some others might start just now, so don’t expect a rapid change. It’s unlikely to happen that quickly. But starting is the best way to get there.

Today, in this post, I would like to address the one big block on why you might not see any change soon, or maybe not at all. This is big.

What am I talking about? [Read more…]

22 Seconds to A New Identity (or How to Become The Real You)

How to Become The Real YouDo you sometimes have difficulties to go to work each day because you feel like Groundhog Day? Nothing changes? The same day happening over and over again?

How about some energy that will help you to start the new day with a blast? Energy that will help you to be happier and more positive? Energy that is available to you each and every single day of the week?

And in case you are wondering, don’t worry, I am not asking anyone to smoke funny stuff.

I will share with you a little ‘Ninja Hack’ which has been helping me for over a month now. It is helping me to “shift” to a new identity. I am somewhat blown away by the effect it has. It changes my mind, my thinking process little by little. As a result of it, I have more energy to start the day, I feel more confident and I accept myself as I am. [Read more…]

How to Be More Present (Starting From Today!)

SSDP_How to Be More PresentSome of you who know me by now are familiar with my personal mission to live more in the present moment day after day. It has been a “thing” for me for the last five years. I am challenging myself every single day to be more present.


Because living the present moment is awesome! You are less distracted. You probably feel more at ease and are less stressed about what’s coming next or what has just happened. You begin to cherish the little things, like someone giving you a great hug.

Actually, being present is logically the right thing to do. “Really”, you ask? “Why would you say that?” [Read more…]

How to Connect with Anyone – Instantly

SSDP_how to connect with anyoneYou would think that it takes a lot of effort to connect with another person, but all it really takes it just one thing in your conversation with someone else.

Without this one element, most conversation stop after “Hey, nice weather out there, don’t you think?” or “Where do you live?”

And don’t get me wrong, sometimes it is good that some conversations end there, because you don’t feel a connection with the other person. But in most cases, it is certainly worthwhile to dig a little deeper to see whether there are some common interests, traits or whatever you are looking for in that particular connection.

How do you currently go about connecting with people? [Read more…]

How to Make Life Effortless and Be Happy with Yourself

SSDP_How to Make Life Effortless and Be Happy with YourselfYes, you read that right. Today, I am going to give you a sneak “preview” of someone who is very well on the way to live his life effortlessly and be happy.

He does not take a magic pill every morning and runs around with a grin on his face the whole day. No.

He is also not perfect. He cries every once in a while.

But this is not what it is about. It is all about being happy.

Imagine the things you could do, if you would be happy more often. Simply happy with where you are at, without judging yourself. Simply happy when you wake up in the morning and you see that it is raining outside (like the lady on the right).

To achieve that, you need one single thing. [Read more…]

Being More Relaxed in Social Situations With This One Single Trick

ssdp_being more relaxed in social situationsDo you feel uneasy and uncomfortable when you meet strangers for the first time? Maybe at a business dinner? Or when you decided to join a Meetup event in town, but then get second thoughts before opening the door joining the others?

I have been there. I know what it’s like.

There were some social events where I wish I could be like Scotty from Star Trek, just beam myself elsewhere.

It would be so easy to just disappear and leave the table (or turn around at the door step). Yet, I would miss out on the fun part and I wouldn’t have the opportunity to meet all these interesting people. And make new connections. Learn new things!

Do you want to be more relaxed in social situations? So relaxed that you won’t even want to be like Scotty? [Read more…]

How to stop struggling with fear and anxiety

SSDP How to stop struggling with fear and anxietyToday’s post is inspired by one of you! You may know that I regularly ask my newsletter subscribers whether they have any topic on their chest which they would like me to address in a specific post. So, today, I would like to thank Cynthia! She asked me whether I can help with an article about how to deal with fear and anxiety in particular, so here it comes!

Before we go in detail on how to deal with fear and anxiety, let’s have a look at what both of those terms really mean.



Fear is a negative emotion felt by a person who is responding to a known or definite threat. To make it more explicit, imagine you are in a supermarket. Someone comes up next to you. You sense danger. The stranger gets out a knife and threatens you to do you harm, if you do not hand over your wallet. That emotion popping up right in those moments is fear. You feel endangered. The threat of this person with the knife is as real as it can be. [Read more…]
