How I Found my Freedom

CoachMaartenChairLife is a lot less serious these days!

That’s the one way I would describe my life right now compared to my life 5 years ago.

Some time back I was a major control freak, a “NO-man” and badly in search for purpose in my life. I also had a perfect job, making good money with a company car and a promising career.

Here are some of the reasons that got me thinking of Freedom:

  • 2004: I got retrenched, the last in first out policy had me picking my nose for almost a year.
  • 2007: Didn’t get to be the Project Manager I wanted to become.
  • 2008: Pain in my body made me move closer to work.
  • 2010: I got good at my job, and didn’t enjoy most of what I was doing.
  • 2011: I started working in a new country and a new company. I quit in a confused state 5 months later.

This is just one way of looking at my career. Today this is how I choose to look at it.

  • 2004: I learned that I’m responsible for my own happiness
  • 2007: I learned that striving alone is not enough, one has to put in the work as well. (I had to learn this one a few times)
  • 2008: I learned that I am responsible for my body.
  • 2010: I learned I am a teacher.
  • 2011: I learned about what it takes for me to feel free.

The learning for me doesn’t stop now, what I do know however is that I can feel free in whatever I choose to do. Today I support Corporate Professionals finding their Freedom, Purpose and Joy in their work as well as their private life.

What else should you know about me?

I love to see people grow and learn more about themselves, I light up when you get that spark in your eyes and realize something major about yourself. I’m also a bit of nerd, I love tech-stuff. Besides that you can find me in the Kiara Hills (Kuala Lumpur) each Thursday morning where I hike up to find inspiration and bring space in my head. Part of my inspiration comes from my 1 year old son who manages to challenge me on an almost daily basis. Oh yeah, I’m also a Certified Coach with CTI (Coach Training Institute).
