How Self-Awareness Helps You To Be An Outstanding Leader

I was sweating not because of the dense humidity, but because of fear. For a moment, I thought I might be at the end of my life and I knew that my chance of surviving depended on my ability to stay calm and control the urge of fleeing. I was in Colombia doing fieldwork in a coca-growing area dominated by a powerful drug lord who moved his first steps under Pablo Escobar.

15 Habits of People with Mental Toughness

Throughout my career, I had the unique opportunity to work and to serve incredibly successful individuals. Though they excel in different fields, from entertainment to sport, from business to politics, they all share a common trait: they master mental toughness.

Over the past few years, I developed the habit of blocking out a few days to review the year that is ending and to create the year that is coming, including some powerful goal setting. Different people inspired me to do this. Blogger and travel hacking master Chris Guillebeau has a great method. I have incorporated several of his ideas in my own process. Leo Babauta also has a process that gave me great ideas. Because I trained as a Strategic Interventionist at the Tony Robbins and Cloe Madaness Institution,...

Date with destiny: my experience with Tony Robbins

When a friend told me he had an extra ticket for Tony Robbins‘ program Date with Destiny in Florida and invited me to go with him, I didn’t hesitate and I said yes on the spot! For a couple of years, I had played around with the idea of participating in this full immersion experience with Tony Robbins. The price hold me back, but true to be said  that was an excuse.
