happy#155 - good or bad?

9/13/2018
More
Everything on Earth. No, everything in the Universe only exist in relation to its opposite. Nothing can exist without being what it is not. Does it feel strage to read that? What about this? The text you are reading appears probably in black and can only be seen because it is written or dispalyed on something that is not black. When you hear the podcast you can only hear my voice because it is differentiating to the other noises around you. As these might be easy examples and are quite...

September 5th is a special day to me. It brought people to my life that made me who I am today and I want to dedicate this episode to them. Almost or temporarily losing these people it draw some conclusions that helped me ever since. Most important to me was the realization that the closer I was to certain people, the more I expected from them. There have been times in my life that I even expected my loved ones to make up for my own mysery. What I couldn‘t find in my own life, I wanted...

happy#153 - age is just a number

I don’t know how old you are, but I guess you are also getting older. Last winter I went on a couple of mountains with my split board and I was so unfit. I thought that I am just not a fit as I used to because I am getting older. But the truth is that there were people way older than me. They were maybe in their 70th and they were fitter that me. This spring and summer I picked up some exercise and well, I am much better in shape than this winter. I don’t feel that worn out anymore…...

happy#152 - straight to the top, or not?

8/20/2018
More
Chasing dreams and achieving goals is about knowing the straight way right? Without distraction and with a clear focus directly towards your personal summit? Well, knowing where you want to go is definitely a plus, but you might face obstacles or barriers that are impossible to overcome. There is no way to fight the wind when you're on a sailing boat. It might be much smarter to adjust your course and trim the sails. What appears to be the wrong course might actually be the only way to...

happy#151 - no feedback, no development

8/16/2018
More
We can’t learn, when we receive no feedback. We will at least never find out if our progress is going in the desired direction. We will loose contact to the base. Therefor is it so important to act, to actually do something and get our work and actions out there. Then we will receive feedback upon which we can react. Everything is connected and action causes a reaction and if we don’t listen to the feedback we won’t know which reaction we are provoking in the world. In case you are...

My journey to declutter started in 2012. I reached a point where I didn’t thrive for more. At least not for more possessions. I wanted to have more joy, more laughter and more contentment. I was looking for more meaning in my life. Through different blogs and writers I ended up with a person who had just taken a phenomenal decision and was traveling the world while writing: Colin Wright and his blog: Exile Lifestyle. Colin was talking about friends who called themselves "the minimalists“....

happy#149 - letting go

7/30/2018
More
Sometimes you need to let go in order to achieve something new. As odd as it seems, first look for something to give up... So often it is mainly the distraction, the lack of focus that gets in our way of achieving something. The day has 24 hours, that‘s it. The attention span lasts only so and so long. There are new studies that the average attention span keeps decreasing and went in 2018 is low as 8 seconds. And then... the next piece of information (or misinformation) catches our...

I am faced every once in a while with the question wether I am not afraid to do some of the stuff that I am doing. And well… yes I am. Life is not about being afraid or not. It is much more about finding a way to do it nevertheless. Afterall, let’s face it. I don’t do anything special at all. It has all been done by numerous people before are are being done simultaneously. It is just special to me because I have never done it before. As soon as you are in the situation where you are...

Have you ever struggled with your mission? The why behind your Job, your project or your duty?

happy#139 - change it with a breath

3/7/2018
More
Although unaware to most of us, we were given a shortcut to our unconscious mind. To our autonomic nervous system, which runs everything important to our life without our conscious mind even recognizing it. Our breath and our lungs are the only organ that we can consciously control. Since our breath directly influences our physiology, our state and our performance, you can do as well. Activate you sympathetic or your parasympathetic nervous system in a breath. LINKS:...

3/1/2018
More
Quality vs. quantity. What do you prefer? More of what you don’t like anyway or just enough of exactly the right thing? You might not be able to influence the quantity of your life as each day has just 24 hours for everyone, but you can massively influence the quality of your life. Quality is made in your head and it is only up to you what is going on in your head. LINKS: https://patreon.com/flohjoe http://happylife.coach/adventure/ http://k-i-d-z.org Follow me on:...

Whatever you will put out in the world will come back sooner or later. And I am sure that the world won’t distinguish between good or evil, revenge or justice. You may describe this phenomena with the balance of energies or just the RAS, but I am going to explain that in the podcast.

While figuring out how to prioritize tasks I had the idea that it might not be about now. Much more important might it be that one day we have no time to change but can only look back and then it will be about the person we have been. It is now that you take the steps towards that person you once have been. My goal is to inspire as many people as possible to live the life they love. And you can help by becoming a Patron.

During my last trip to Zanzibar it became so obvious, that all the people surrounding me where not heading towards a positiv future for themselves and their families. The uneducation seemed to have become an even bigger problem and leaving me no option to work with local people from the village. I thought that I could either complain or do something about it. I took the second option, founded KIDZ individual development for Zanzibar and am sending local kids to school now! LINKS:...

Guess what? There is no such thing as reality out there. And if there is nobody has ever seen it. Reality is always a question of perspective and focus. So if you ever doubt or dislike what you see, feel or experience out there it might be due to your perspective and focus. If you change that, you might even be one big step closer to a happy life.

Its getting cold outside. Winter, dark, sometimes rainy, hopefully snowy and why this should not affect my, or your mood at all. There is no bad weather, there is only bad clothing. Some for life. There is only bad attitude. You are the only one to decide about the attitude that you have. Own your thoughts.

Just back from Sahara, I am still recapturing what has happened this time and what kind of a wonderful journey it has been again. During many conversations and long evenings at the campfire it once again became so crystal clear that most of the unhappiness in peoples life comes from not knowing what they really want. It makes sense to go there first and find out what it is that you are thriving for and then adjust your life to that. LINKS: http://happylife.coach/adventure/ Follow me on:...

happy#130 - simple foods

10/16/2017
More
There are so many areas of simplicity that we could talk about. But where does it all start? I think we have to start with what we are made of, our food. If we overcomplicate the way we produce our food, how shall we be able to live a simple life? By simple food I don’t mean to be simple of variety? I mean to remain simple with the processing. Eat as cloth to nature as you are able to. LINKS: http://happylife.coach/adventure/ Follow me on: Twitter: twitter.com/flohjoe1001 Facebook:...
