25? Haha, today’s the day. I am old now. Since I am 21 I keep saying that I am twenty one whenever someone asks me – until I realize I am 24. Shit. No – 25 now!

It doesn’t feel any kind of bad though. I’ve been looking forward to turning 25 over the past two years. The reason for that, idk. Every year when it’s about time to prepare for my birthday I start thinking a lot. Where in life am I right now? Did I learn and progress within the past 12 months? What am I unhappy about? What do I need / want to change? Where do I wanna be in 5, 10, 20 years? How in the world will I ever find a place to settle? All these kind of questions.

This years thoughts are interesting to me. I feel like the first time in my life I found something like a „solution” to deal with all the stress and negativity that is in everyday life. I have a much clearer understanding of my own visions and with that a lot more structure in every day to day life as I can break the „vision” down into realistic „milestones”. At the same, I realize more and more how important it is to build a team around yourself that you are happy to be working with rather than being a one-man army for the rest of your/my life.

Learnings of the past year:

  • Nothing in this world is more important than your own routines! Stick to them!
  • Always go with the choice that scares you the most
  • Don’t give a fuck about what other people think
  • Surround yourself with role models
  • Be a role model
  • Always go to bed with zero emails left in your inbox
  • Meditation helps for real if you practice it
  • After 2 weeks without alcohol, you live differently
  • Nothing can stop you as long as you are willing to give it all!

I guess I could continue with this list for another 15 minutes, but that pretty much sums it up I think.

My plans for the upcoming year are huge, and with that all the learnings from the past years will be even more important than ever before. I will get back into all my routines I introduced into my life the past 4 months from now on – to really make this one stand out.

Looking at the last year it’s taken an incredible amount of discipline, routines and hard work to make all the things happen that I want to do – that’s why I’m even more excited for the next one. One year from now, I wanna be in the exact same position again, proud about what happened throughout the past 12 months. But that will be quite a challenge!

To start off this Monday with loads of motivation, watch the latest Vlog of my biggest inspiration out there. This kid is just insane!

Time to get back into a hyper-disciplined life! Have a kick-ass start into the week ya’ll!
