But Who Am I?
My name is Mick de Boer. I’m passionate about self-mastery, living a healthy lifestyle, and leaving a positive impact on the world.
But I haven’t always been like this…
Back in school, I was the quiet one, too scared to take up any space.
I didn’t like to be in the spotlight and lived my life in doubt.
I didn’t enjoy the study I choose but I felt obliged to finish.
In my spare time I played video games to escape my boring life and got drunk every weekend for the same reason.
Not only that, but without alcohol, I couldn’t “be myself”.
Although I had friends, I often felt alone and misunderstood.
I was insecure, afraid, lonely, and frustrated.
Now, what’s that for a way to live your life? How could I’ve so many resources in life and yet, feel so unhappy?
Unconsciously, I Started My Personal Quest
It all started when I got injured 1 week before the marathon in Rotterdam. This was very disappointing, to say the least.
But playing sports was very addictive to me. I felt skinny because I looked like a massive plank (6’4 ft) and went to the gym to gain muscles and confidence.
I gained some muscles (and loads of fat) but my confidence levels were still low. Then I realized that I had to change my focus on the inside, on my thoughts and beliefs.
I was obsessed with negativity and blamed everything and everyone, except myself.
When people were trying to help me out, I felt like they were a treat to me.
When people were having fun, I thought they were laughing at me…
Fortunately, I Found Joy
Although learning in school had discouraged me from learning in general, I found joy in reading about nutrition and exercise.
This started a ripple effect in my life.
I realized that my confidence wouldn’t go up from getting a better body, so I started to focus on different topics, from picking up girl to personal development.
And then it happened, I found something that turned the switch.
The book “Awaken the Giant Within – Tony Robbins” changed my life
While reading this book, my life’s blueprint was unraveling before my eyes. I saw patterns in my life that I had never seen before.
For the first time in my life, I felt incredibly hopeful.
This book made me aware of the things that needed to change in my life. I became addicted to self-help books.
But It Wasn’t Easy To Change
At this point, I was finishing my study and didn’t know what to do with my future. I traded gaming for playing poker hoping that I could earn some money. Even though I loved playing poker and learning everything about it, I didn’t manage to earn much.
I was hoping for the big numbers to appear.
… but it didn’t. And it’s not difficult to see why.
Against the nature of the game, I got obsessed with short-term gains and unrealistic results. After I had finished my study, I decided to do something completely different – backpacking on the other side of the world.
I decided to fly to Australia and travel around. I was hoping that I would figure the rest of my life out in a different environment. Packed with some clothes and a bunch of eBooks I was ready for this adventure. But although I was a traveler, my obsession for learning was still there.
At this point, I became obsessed with personal development and health.
I started by taking full responsibility for my life. I held myself accountable for everything that had happened in my life and felt extremely free once I was able to admit this to myself.
From there it has been quite a journey with plenty of ups and downs. But I’m sure of one thing – I will never be a victim of myself again. I’m committing myself to higher self-expectations than I ever thought I would be able to set for myself.
I changed my life by changing my mindset and habits. This changed what I focused on, which helped me to get where I’m today.
You’ll understand by now – I’m just like you. I’ve been struggling (and still am from time to time!) with life but have found a way to feel fulfilled and happy on a consistent basis. And so can you!
That’s why I created this website!
I’m here to help you on your journey. I want to share the things that I’ve learned so that you don’t have to make the same mistakes. I want to empower and inspire you!
But I’m not perfect.
In fact, I’m just as human as anyone else. I will fall and make mistakes over and over. However, I’m committed to providing the highest quality content as I possibly can, to help as many people as I possibly can, all over the world.
