In the relentless pursuit of success, entrepreneurs often find themselves consumed by the demands of their businesses, leaving little time for introspection and self-discovery. However, it is precisely in this space of reflection that the seeds of purpose and happiness are sown. As someone who has worked closely with over 200 founders, I have witnessed firsthand the transformative power of uncovering one's true purpose and aligning it with entrepreneurial endeavors. In this article, we embark on a bold exploration of the factors that lead to personal fulfillment and entrepreneurial triumph, paving the way for a life of purpose, happiness, and resounding success.

Section 1: Unlocking awareness: The key to entrepreneurial fulfillment

In the pursuit of entrepreneurial success, we often find ourselves immersed in a whirlwind of busyness, losing sight of what truly matters. Rediscovering our awareness becomes a vital gateway to fulfillment. Many of us have become desensitized to life's essence, relying solely on our thoughts influenced by external stimuli. However, by neglecting our sensations, we miss the opportunity to experience the depth of our emotions—the fuel that drives our entrepreneurial journey.

Our modern world bombards us with distractions, numbing our ability to connect deeply with ourselves and others. Excessive entertainment and superficial gratification have dulled our senses. To reclaim our passion and purpose, we must engage all our faculties: touch, taste, sight, smell, hearing, and even our thoughts. Just as a car driven on only two or three cylinders lacks power, our lives are diminished when we neglect our sensations.

To thrive as entrepreneurs, we must resist external manipulations that breed fear, worry, and doubt. In this unique era of relative safety, our greatest fear lies in untapped potential. Let us seize the privilege of our time and rediscover our sensations, harnessing the wisdom of our body intelligence. By merging soul and body, we tap into our essence, unlocking the power to create and transform.

One profound truth we must confront is the fear of death. It has been said that the denial of death, not love, keeps the world spinning. Embracing our mortality sets us free, granting us a renewed sense of purpose and peace. As entrepreneurs, we understand the urgency to make the most of our time on this beautiful Earth, leveraging our awareness to create a meaningful impact.

To embark on the path to entrepreneurial fulfillment, we must awaken our awareness. Embrace your sensations, reject external manipulation, and tap into the intelligence of your body. Merge soul and body, making peace with the inevitability of death, and unlock a profound level of freedom, purpose, and entrepreneurial success.

With heightened awareness, entrepreneurs embark on transformative journeys, fueled by purpose, happiness, and an unwavering commitment to make a difference in the world. A perfect tool to embark on a higher awareness level is to do 15-18min a day for seven days the “twin heart meditation”. ¹ Meditating for others is much more rewarding than meditation for oneself, you might notice if you experienced meditator.

Section 2: The power of heart-centered communication for entrepreneurs

Communication is a labyrinth we often find ourselves lost in as entrepreneurs. However, the true challenge lies not in external exchanges, but in the internal dialogue we have with ourselves. Our brain and heart operate on different wavelengths, speaking different languages. This isn't mere speculation; scientific research from the HeartMath Institute supports this notion. ²

Consider the implications when our internal alignment falters. How can two minds understand each other when they are not in sync? How can the message travel from mind to heart without distortion? It seems impossible. Yet, it is achievable when the mind and heart achieve coherence. In simpler terms, the heart takes command, leading to a harmonious union of thoughts and feelings.

Why is this important for entrepreneurs? Because feelings are the language of the heart, while thoughts are the language of the mind. Authentic feelings are challenging to counterfeit unless externally manipulated. Love cannot be faked, and neither can genuine fear. By reconnecting with our hearts and actively listening to their wisdom, we gain immense clarity.

Once we establish this heart-centered connection, our external communication improves. We engage with others from a place of authenticity and understanding. We navigate conversations with greater ease, forging meaningful connections and collaborations. Can you sense the difference already?

As entrepreneurs, we must recognize the significance of heart-centered communication. By prioritizing our heart's voice and aligning it with our thoughts, we unlock a powerful force that propels our entrepreneurial endeavors forward. Embrace the language of the heart and watch as your communication skills elevate to new heights.

With heart-centered communication, entrepreneurs transcend barriers, cultivate empathy, and build bridges to success. One very simple and practical tool you can use, starting sentences with "I feel" rather than "I think". As an example, I don't feel we should do this, rather than that. The expression, power, and energy behind are much different, you immediately are in your heart rather than mind. Focus on noticing or feeling the difference if you speak out the sentences.

Section 3: Embracing the flow: Pulling towards success

The concept of push versus pull holds immense significance, particularly for entrepreneurs. Why do people persist in pushing when there is an alternative: staying in the pull mode? What does that mean exactly? The true essence of life's flow lies not in the realm of "push." It is within this realm that burnout, depression, and various challenges arise. However, once we surrender to the unfolding process that naturally flows through us, we begin to grasp the secret element of life's magic.

Allow me to share my journey. Before 2015, I was solely focused on pushing. Simultaneously building four companies while pursuing an EMBA, I was undoubtedly heading toward burnout. It was at this critical juncture that I received a cancer diagnosis, which prompted a radical shift in my perspective. I decided—I’m not going to suffer. Recognizing life as the ultimate gift, I embarked on an extraordinary eight-year healing and self-discovery journey.

Now, let's return to the concept of life's flow or the pull. Efficiency is the cornerstone for entrepreneurs and leaders. We strive for effective time management, optimal resource allocation, and surpassing expectations. Interestingly, the key to achieving this lies not in drastic changes, but rather in freeing ourselves from the belief that we must know exactly what we are meant to do and how to do it. Allow me to illustrate this point: Does a screwdriver need to know how to drive screws? No, the screwdriver is simply the tool employed for that purpose. Similarly, why should humans burden themselves with the need to know everything and how it should be done? By embracing the "service to divine" mode, a world of magic unfolds before us.

Suddenly, worries about the "how" fade away.

My mantra echoes with unwavering faith: "I am grateful, and everything is arranged." Reflecting on the past three months alone, my life has been a series of miracles. Fortuitous business deals, meaningful encounters with remarkable individuals, and the ability to explore extraordinary places—all of these experiences reinforce the power of the pull. Let us not forget the role of manifestation and how excessive focus on rituals can inadvertently diminish magic.

In summary, to embrace the pull mode rather than push, we must diligently practice the mantra: "I am grateful, and everything is arranged." Embrace the simplicity of this approach, and witness how life orchestrates its wonders on your entrepreneurial journey.

Remember, success lies in surrendering to the pull and allowing life's magic to unfold through you.

Section 4: Reaching the ummit: Bliss and Joy

The ultimate culmination of these four stages brings us to the pinnacle of happiness—bliss, and joy. This is the stage where life transcends into a state of ecstasy, as described by my esteemed spiritual teacher, Ralph Willms. In this state, happiness becomes the norm, with 29 out of 30 days filled with a profound sense of joy. Bad days become a rarity, and everything feels harmonious, effortless, and light.

It's important to recognize that happiness, in its conventional sense, is often fleeting. It can be triggered by external factors like purchasing a luxurious new car, only to fade away after a couple of weeks. Many external stimuli have a temporary impact on our happiness, causing waves of highs and lows. The key is to flatten these curves by reducing our reliance on external influences and focusing on what truly matters.

By shifting our attention away from the pursuit of wants dictated by the mind and redirecting it towards fulfilling the needs of our body, we pave the way for a calmer and more balanced existence. This shift allows us to embrace the principle of "less is more," where joy and bliss become our default operating mode. It is important to note that satisfaction and contentment are elusive as long as we continue chasing external desires.

Describing the entire process of reaching this stage would require extensive exploration. However, I invite you to watch the ending scene ³ of the movie "American Beauty" to gain a glimpse of what I am referring to. It beautifully captures the essence of this transformative journey.

Embrace the path towards bliss and joy and experience the profound shift that awaits you. It is within this state of being that life reveals its true magnificence.


Entrepreneurial success goes beyond financial gains and external recognition. It encompasses a profound understanding of oneself, a sense of purpose, and the pursuit of happiness. Through the transformative journey of self-discovery, the cultivation of heart-mind coherence, embracing the flow of life, and unlocking the power of bliss, we lay the groundwork for extraordinary entrepreneurial triumph.
