“Wisdom outweighs any wealth.”
Wisdom Catcher 2017, is a book made of sentences I collected throughout the year 2017.
I took to my heart the words of Sophocles and developed a habit of regularly catching on paper wisdom in a form of sentences that makes sense to me at a time; and could help me with self-discovery, self-awareness and self-improvement!
The 2017 collection is organized in 8 categories:
· Values and direction
· Attitude and emotions
· Actions and activities
· Goals and dreams
· Successes and failures
· Learnings and changes
· People and relations
· A good life and happiness
From all the sentences I collected, I have chosen the top 10 for you. The sentences that made the biggest impact on me in 2017.
I hope this book can be of value to you as it is to me. I also hope it will be a place of inspiration and relaxation.
Therefore, I have chosen some of my favourite pictures, which I took lately, to make it also pleasurable for you to view it.

Les Brown is saying it correctly, that information is not enough. If information would be enough we all would be rich, skinny and healthy 😊
The good question is: what does it take to change information in inspiration?
The answer to this question I got from Les Brown last weekend in London. Les said something that will be for a long time with me.
He said: “I heard you in my heart…”
In April 2015, I had the privilege to spend some time with the famous motivational speaker, Mr. Les Brown. I was with Les and his team while he delivered one of his great speeches to more than twenty thousand people in Poznan, Poland. After his performance, we had some private time in his sky box in the stadium. While relaxing, and listening to other speakers, he asked me to tell him about myself. When I finished my story, he said:
“You are all about reinventing yourself.” Continue reading
Spring is a very special season. It is the season of new opportunities, new energy, new life! It is also the season of sowing and preparing for reaching to our dreams and goals! In the Spring my dreams and goals are waking up, are revitalizing. I see more chances and more ways to get there than I have seen in the Winter that just passed.
I like this Spring energy! I like that the days are getting longer, temperature is getting higher and everything in the Nature starts a new life cycle. Flowers and trees are waking up, everything is more active and searching for the opportunities to expand. There is so much activities and energy in the Spring. The new opportunities present themselves and the new dreams and goals are being born or existing one are being energized. Continue reading
On 15-3-2017 in the Netherlands 82% of people entitled to vote used their rights to elect a new country representation. The formation of a new government will take for a while, but majority of people all over the World have been enthusiastic to see that the populist and authoritarian party did not become the biggest one. Well done the Netherlands!
However, when we look carefully at the results of this election, what we can see is that the parties which actually did very good job in getting the Netherlands out of the crisis have been punished by voters. The populist party actually gained a few seats when comparing to the last election and the rest of the political environment become even more fragmented.
The question I am asking myself is, what is going on with our freedom and democracy? Continue reading
“In order for the light to shine so brightly, the darkness must be present.”
It seems to me that the drama of life take place between two opposites. There is light and there is darkness, there is good and there is evil…
Yes, night comes just after a good day ends, winter comes after the colours of autumn fade away and storm comes after we enjoyed a nice weather. This is how our Word works. It is not good, it is not bad. It is a fact. Continue reading
I am sure you will agree with me, that if we really want something, we will find the way to get it. We can change priorities, act differently, we can learn new skills, we can hire people to do it for us or ask them for help. When there is a will there is a way. We just need to realize that we want it badly enough, be willing to get out of our comfort zone and to pay the price. Continue reading
“Never mistake activity for achievement.” John Wooden
It is crucial that we know what we do and why we do it. It’s sounds logical, but I found out that it is not so clear to many people… Often we can see good, hard-working people doing their best to produce things, that should not be produced at all. Things that have often opposite effect to one that was required or expected. Continue reading
It seems that the drama of life take place between two opposites. There is light and there is darkness, there is good and there is evil, there is motivation and there is demotivation, there is inspiration and there is desperation … In my opinion this is one of the most important lessons in our life. We should understand that we need both to enjoy the drama of life, to enjoy the journey. Even though often does not seems like this is the best way to us! Continue reading
“The good life is when I have freedom of choice and wisdom to choose rightly…”
“The good life is when I am grateful for what I am, what I achieved and what I attracted to my life without losing the urge to discover and to attract even more…” Continue reading
