Why Should I Discover My Strengths?

Maybe it’s happened to you before. You’re sitting in a job interview and suddenly your interviewer asks you what your strengths are. You probably thought about it before. But to what percentage was your answer driven by what you thought the other person wanted to hear? And to what percentage were these really YOUR strengths? And why is it important?

The Long Road to Your Self

The Long Road to Your Self

At some point I read that we humans are the means of the universe to think about itself. Questions like, “Who am I?” or “What is the meaning of life” are phrases we use to explain ourselves and the world around us. Millions of years of evolution have taught us that everything that makes us up (body and mind) has a specific purpose. I firmly believe that one of our main tasks in life is to understand ourselves and our way and thereby help all people and living beings.

Everything Positive?

Everything Positive?

When some people hear Positive Psychology they automatically think of positive thinking or smiley faces and as a consequence, some get a tight knot in their stomach. Rightfully so.

A Different Voice

A Different Voice

We experience many different dialogues, discussion, and conversations in our lives. Some of them are nice, some of them are neutral, and some of them are not so nice. This is true for voices we hear in our external world but also in our internal word. However, our internal world is often negatively skewed. Many of us have a very loud and dominant inner critic.

Preparing For The End: The Proper Hug

The end is near. What reads like an apocalyptic statement is, in fact, something to look forward to. And no, I don’t mean to celebrate the beauty of those four horses and its riders. Neither the spectacular view we might have when watching the all-devouring inferno.
