My wake up call
During my career in media and advertising, one night I woke up from a dream in which Acda en de Munnik sang to me: “In all these years you have never been yourself. You are the partyman at the wrong party.”
It was a turning point in my life. I realized two things: that something wasn’t right. And that the solution was closer than I thought: Within myself!
Meeting the Leader Within
I decided to turn inwards.
There I met the voice of an inner self and discovered an infinite source of inspiration and wisdom of a self-creating, self-guiding and self-healing being.
On every aspect of my life he shows me what he wants and which corrections of my life path are necessary. Never with judgment, always to the point and often with humour.
I realised that this inner 'entity' and that voice were my True Self.
As with everybody, my true self was still alive and kicking deep within me, but had become subdued over the years of my life.
Now we were back in touch, we would never lose each other again. From now on no more worrying, no need for future planning, as my whole life was already planned in detail.
The DNA Code of Life3

Quickly I learned to renounce all people, rules and convictions that did not serve my life.
That created space to discover where I came from, how I ended up on this planet and how life operates by scientific laws. But above all I learned about my personal goals in this life.
Believe me, they differed completely from the goals I had made up myself or the goals that the world wanted me to chase!
I was finally in charge of being Me.
A costly mistake4
The price of not listening to the Leader Within
But life had it's challenges too.
Shortly before the banking crisis the Leader Within told me in a dream: "Sell your shares if you don't want to lose your money." By acting immediately I did not lose a penny!
One year later, just before the fastest stockmarket rally ever, the Leader Within told me in a dream: "Start investing now and you will earn a lot of money." I did not act on my inner leader's advice. With hindsight, I could have doubled my money in one year!
It was a costly mistake. But it taught me: if you do not listen to your Self, you always pay the price.
The author of my life5
The author of my life; the author of my first book
About the discovery who you are, your purpose, the path that leads you there, the means and the inner coach you have at your disposal and conquering the pitfalls you will inevitably meet, I have written a book: Rule Your Own Life: The Seven Laws of Self-Determination.
You can order it here.
Taking it to the world6
Launching Leaders From Within
Living your purpose, finding your natural happiness and the meaning of your life became the theme for countless public speaking appearances and different program try-outs.
It was a succes. People asked for more!
Guess what? One night I woke up from a dream in which I was asked to start a business to help people live their life From Within: Leaders From Within.
And so the end of my journey is as the beginning: everything started with a dream.
