Over a period of 12 years I pushed hard to fulfil my calling and use my gifts to their full potential. I listened to personal development and motivational books, but none of them had the impact that they promised. I finally realised Read more “When is it God and When is it Me?”
The first step to fulfill your call is to recognise that there is no call without the One who calls. His process has remained the same throughout the ages. Our western world would have us use all our willpower and discipline and simply push hard to make our call happen. Be bold! God can steer a moving ship. Indeed!
Our call on our lives is a process that belongs primarily to our Father. It is simply our responsibility and free choice to respond to the process.
His process is one that takes time because this is not about your skill, gifts, talents or abilities. This is about your character. I have pushed hard when I was younger and this resulted in a long wilderness period where God was merciful enough to let me try again and again. It was like trying to complete a level in a game where you start over at the beginning every time you fail. Endless credits though.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to be stuck on the same level however. This is where a good calling coach comes in. It is someone that have experienced the process and felt the pain of failure, mercy and grace and can help you spot it in your own life.
So, let’s talk if you are in need of a calling coach.
In 2017 I will aim to post less than I did in 2016 when I was posting one insight a week. Up until August 2016 I was consistent with my posts, but as you have probably read, I have gone through dramatic shifts in terms of my world view.
2016 Was the year that symbolises completion and wholeness for me – the year I realised Read more “2017 – Believe!”
This is the first insight I have written in about 3 months. Up until then I was posting a new insight once a week like clockwork. Why did I stop so abruptly? In order to answer that I want to take a bit of a detour that I think speaks to many people for 2016.
In September 2015 I perceived that a season lay ahead that was going to be bumpy but that we (my family) would be at a higher place after this bumpy period. I saw a vision of an airplane that has to push through turbulence to get above it and fly higher and more stable. What followed was challenging and life altering.

I have learned a very difficult and deep lesson over the last 12 years. It is a fragile, yet powerful, idea that transforms your life from mediocre to truly significant: You are more than your skills and abilities.
The challenge however is letting go. You have to be brave enough to ask yourself what lies beyond your known, fortified self-image informed by how good you are at Read more “You Are More Than Your Skills and Abilities”
Many people see capitalism and business as evil. …Understandably so. Many leaders in business today are missing the point. Business is there to serve society. The future leader of business needs to be a fulfilled individual if he or she wants to truly lead for good and not greed.
True leaders cannot desire to have Read more “The Battle of the Egos”
I cannot believe how many people in business simply accept the current mediocre leadership culture. I am utterly frustrated with the number of really smart people that will settle for second best when it comes to creating freedom. Freedom?
Simple: free to choose when I work; free to choose where I work (and therefore skipping toxic exhaust fumes on my daily commute); free to choose how work gets structured (so that we can be creative and simply brilliant Read more “Blind Intelligence”
