What is your biggest fear?
My biggest fear is lying on my deathbed and having to say that I never went after the things I wanted to do in my life. I don’t want to have any major regrets when I get old.
Another fear is the current health status of grandfather. He has been a defining person throughout my life and taught me many important principles that have defined me as a person as well. I love him a lot and in a way, he is my greatest hero. 🙂
What would you like to achieve with your writing?
The purpose of this blog is to inspire people through personal development, but also to think for yourself. I’m also a great advocate of emotional and social intelligence and for some reason really enjoy writing about it. 🙂
On a scale from 1 (hell would be better) to 10 (everything is more than perfect), how satisfied are you with your life right now and why do you think so?
I thought about this for a couple of minutes and would confidently rate it a 9.
My family and I are all, for the most part, very healthy, my friends are fantastic people who inspire me by what they do every day, my mother and I have a great relationship… What else…? Mhm… I guess I’m meeting a lot of new people who I can deeply connect with on a regular basis. I go to a great university and couldn’t imagine studying something I’d enjoy more (I study business psychology), and I have a roof above my head. To me, that’s all that really matters at the end of the day!
What is the first thing you do every morning?
That depends. It generally starts with snoozing my timer 10 times before I get out of bed. If I’m at university, I tend to get up between 6 and 8, go to the gym, have a nice breakfast and then get to work.
When I’m home, things look a little different. 😛 I tend to oversleep, not stick to my habits I maintain whilst living alone/at uni, simply because I’ve noticed there are a lot of cues that make my habits go straight out the window. 🙂
How do you like to spend your weekends?
I like to stay productive. My favorite things to do, are to go to a nearby town, city or area I haven’t seen yet. So, for the most part, I do try travel somewhere. 🙂
On other occasions I really enjoy reading my books about psychology and all other sorts of topics, go for a walk, work-out, eat good food, hang out with my friends, write, play the piano, but most importantly, procrastinate on my uni assignments. 😛
What are you grateful for?
Definitely for having the most wonderful mum I could ever ask for. To me, my mum isn’t only a mother, but also my best friend who’s done more than I could ever ask for.
What things do you have on your bucket list?
Mhm… My biggest traveling goal is to go to the Atacama desert in Chile, lay on a sand dune, and watch the milky way on a clear night sky. The pictures I’ve seen have always fascinated me, and I simply can’t believe they are real. I literally get goosebumps when thinking about it!
Another thing I’d really like to do is travel the world with my own family one day. 🙂
What’s the craziest dream you ever had?
I once dreamed I was a Jedi. This was when I was 8. I was so fascinated by the dream that I woke up and drew a picture of it. 😛
What’s your core belief?
I can achieve anything I want in life if I help other people achieve their dreams first.
What is your biggest desire?
Mhm… I would say to have a job that I enjoy so much that it doesn’t feel like working. To inspire, and positively impact people through my work. 🙂
