My Aha Moment…Elles Lohuis

In the Summer of 2006 I went out to teach as a volunteer in a small Buddhist monastery for nuns in the Indian Himalayas. It was my turning point. I came back & changed my life.

Until then I’d considered myself pretty lucky. Being a high-achieving multi-tasker I’d  plastered my office wall with diplomas & certificates & worked ‘steady and respectable ’ positions in the corporate & academic world alongside my own successful businesses in coaching & training.

But all this ambition & overdrive had also caused me to collapse, suffering from severe depression in my late 20s —no focus on the things that mattered most – & serious life-threatening illnesses in my 30s — not shifting gears soon enough.

Life at the monastery that Summer – 3 months on a remote mountain top with no facilities but a bunch of incredible honest women – was confronting me & my busyness.

Returning home I decided to get my priorities straight. I stopped doing the unnecessary & cut to the core – to the core of my life & my business.

I started by decluttering my belongings & went on to do the same with my mind — said goodbye to a lot of sticky beliefs & invited new, wholesome thoughts in.

Prioritizing in my life brought prioritizing in my business.  I cut to the core of what I truly excel in, of what I truly stand for –I simplified & succeeded!

I never looked back & developed my Simplify To Succeed method as the foundation of my business & my life – joyously & successfully.

The results speak for themselves.  Now:

  •  Instead of paying heed to the ‘busy, busy, busy’ drama going around I am calm, focused, productive & creative
  •  I consciously choose & act upon the things that matter & bring in the money – continuously improving my revenue with quality over quantity
  •  Instead of doubting myself & wrestling a never ending match with perfectionism, I’m proactive, producing quality content in less time than ever
  •  Instead of delivering just-in-time chores for everybody, I collaborate with preferred clients, intentionally leveling up myself & my services all the time
  •  Instead of feeling pressured & responding half-heartedly in my business & my life, I genuinely proud of who I am, how I lead & what I achieve — every single day again
  • And most important of all, I always feel I’ve got time for another coffee & stimulating conversation – or book!

I direct my whole being to what matters to me most by way of a successful & meaningful business that works for me –  making more money, having more impact & feeling more fulfilled then ever!

And I want to support you doing this too!
