Mentor Thoughts


Overdose on the senses: Get out of your body, absorbing all that you come in contact with.

Dance beyond the breakers: Having direction and going after something – going toward that which gives you purpose is the way – otherwise your life becoming avoiding trouble and there is no strength in that.

Lean on the strengths: In other not to fail in the end, you have to be dependent on yourself and know that you can handle things. Most importantly, bring a little humor into despair. Lightness, imagination, flexibility – these are the things that go into making a new start.

Sponsor yourself: Don’t deny yourself to please others. You only lose yourself in the promise.

Share what you know: Be generative. Pass on what you know. In sharing there is real delight. People in every stage depend on other people. Out of connection real growth happens. If there is no reciprocity, nothing ever works.

Play out your experiences: We don’t stop playing because we grow old. We grow old because we stop playing. Anyway, the opposite of play is obey.

Always be willing to embrace challenges: A good life is like a weaving. Energy is created in the tension. The struggle, the pull and tug are everything.
