Are you proud of this year?

A reflection on 2013

Learnings from 2013

This year was a very interesting year on a professional and personal level.

And, as I told you in the short Holiday message movie that you can find below, we had our ups but we also had our downs, and I think that we should treasure even more the downs than the ups. Why?

Sharing knowledge from TEDx Brussels 2013

TedX Brussels28th of October 2013 was my first TEDx experience and I have to say it was a very inspiring one! With the theme “Do something out of nothing”, #TEDxBrussels 2013 brought on stage amazing speakers, all sharing great ideas.  The areas touched by the them were diverse, but they all have something in common: science. Be it education, youth unemployment, music, food, protecting animals, technology, they all proved that we live in a world that is constantly changing, evolving, and has more opportunities to offer than ever before!

3 things I learned while my plane was crashed

“I no longer want to postpone anything in life. That urgency, that purpose, has really changed my life.”

“I no longer try to be right; I choose to be happy.”

“I regretted the time I wasted on things that did not matter with people that matter.”

Ric Elias was sitting in seat 1D of U.S. Airways Flight 1549 on January 15, 2009 headed to Charlotte, North Carolina, when a flock of Canadian geese collided with the jet.

“When the pilot said, ‘Brace for impact,’ I knew my life was over,” said Elias, “But I was given a chance.”

Watch the short TED talk below to learn the 3 things and ask yourself what can you learn from his experience too.

What did we cover?

Get ready for holiday!

As a coach I help people reach their objectives. But sometimes we get stuck in the process because the client cannot fully focus on the future objectives: he/she is too focused on today’s problems and on the negative emotions that he/she lives daily.

And the negative emotions do not let us live fully our present and future beautiful experiences!

A “clean up” of the negative emotions and getting the learnings as resources for the future is what you need in order to be able to let some of those emotions go away. It does not mean that you will not feel anything anymore, it means that you will release what you don’t need and start your journey towards your objectives with a “light backpack”.

Strategies to remember names

How could you learn the name of a person? How could you remember that name?

I always had issues in remembering names, but for someone the name is the most important thing: it’s his identity and is linked to the core of the person. Using the name we value that person and we create a personal relationship.
