PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT 2017-09-01T07:24:11+00:00

In order to grow we need to act

I work intensely with personal development on a daily basis. It is my profound belief that whatever goals we have in life, we can only reach them by first identifying our desires and interests. It is only then we are able to set up specific concrete goals. If we do not earnestly want these goals to be fulfilled, we will most likel never reach them.

In order for 2StrongArms and myself to progress and evolve, I am on a monthly basis noting down all my results. In this way for me, I am hold accountable for all readers and viewers. There is naturally a system and a method in place here. If you want to learn such a method see…

Three core projects

Strength

The project is about nursing, supporting, building, and in the end harvesting a strong self confidence and a high level of self-insightfullness. This is done through promoting physical and mental strength, especially through sports, the outdoors, and an active life style.

  • Through a physical perspective: I have organised my training in a well structured manner and there will be clear goals each year, including a healthy diet and an otherwise well balanced lifestyle
  • Through an inner perspective: More self-insightfulness and a greater self-confidence creates more physcological manouvarbility and removes mental obstacles of what is possible to achieve
  • Through an economical perspective: There is an increase in living an active lifestyle, and time is well spent in doing what I feel is interesting, rewarding, and where I feel a greater fullfillment in life

Sub-Projects of Freedom

The Iron-Man Kalmar 2016, is race consisting of 3,8K swiming, 180K biking, and 42K running. This event is held every year in the city of Kalmar, south Sweden. Info and progress report. 

Iceland by Wheels is a part of my examinations project, as a participant in the Adventure Academy, program, administered by the Swedish outdoors retail chain Naturkompaniet. It consist of mountain biking across Iceland, 700K summer 2016. Info and progress report.

Freedom

The project is about being physically and financially free, and thus not being restricted to a specific geographical location. This will be done through research, such as in reading, studying, and taking after good examples, as well as being active in financial investments

  • Through a physical perspective: I am not restricted to a specific physical location and I have an overflow of financial means. In not being physically bound to a location, I have the possiblity to be wherever I see a personal an interest and wherever there are possibilities for further development
  • Through an inner perspective: I have greater possibility to travel and move, but I also have got rid of physcological barriers as I have a greater possiblity to take in new knowledge and experiences. My self-confidence and self-insightfullness is strengthened and there is greater general wellbeing
  • Through an economic perspective: An increased flow of economical means creates a larger flow of positive energy which allows me to pursue my interests even further

Sub-Projects of Freedom

This website is also my own company. I want to develop the company and be able to use it as a catalyst towards a more rewarding and better lifestyle

Impact

The project is about me being a positive influence in society at large and with people around me. This is done through inspiration of what is possible to achieve by setting good examples, but also through giving and supporting those in need, such as through charity

  • Through a physical perspective: In all areas of my life, and especially through sub-projects, I think of how I can be a positive influence and support for instance, enviromental issues
  • Through an inner perspective: My committement in this aspect of life will enhance my overall engagement in my other undertakings as these will be about something more than myself
  • Through an economical perspective: A higher purpose in my undertakings is achieved and thus and render these activities more valuable, which in turn increases my committment and flow of energy

Sub-Projects of Impact

Raising funds fighting cancer is done as a part of the Iceland by Wheels sub-projects. Donations can be done to the Swedish Cancer Society.

Through Ultreia-X, Iceland by Wheels, and all my endeavors I aim to inspire others so they can pursue their passions and live their lives to the fullest.

Sub-projects of Strength

#1: Setting up a morning ritual

Timeline: The project begun 28 September 2016 and will be ongoing until the end of December, that is 94 days. At the end of every month, starting from September I will evaluate the ritual. The aim is to increase my energy levels and attain exponential results in all aspects of life. Hence, the routines involved are flexible, what does not work will be altered or removed. Structurally the end goal is to have set up a system that simply works.

  • Which five key components have I included in my ritual?

  • Have I got up from bed, at least 1h before breakfast?

  • Have I meditated for 1h, once a week?

  • Have I enjoyed a stable amount of energy or increased my energy levels? (compare with daily energy quote)

  • From 1-10 how well prepared am I for the rest of the day after my morning ritual? (10=highly prepared, full of energy, enthusiasm)

  • Which five key components have I included in my ritual?

What is it? A morning ritual basically consists of setting up routines, waking up early and execute these routines. In this ritual I include waking up around 5.5:30 am, exercise, meditation, self-development, set time for working on my projects and finally a healthy nutritious breakfast.

Why am I doing it? A morning ritual sets the standard for the rest of the day. It is the time when we can fully prepare us for what is to come during that same day, may it be meetings, encounters, work, exercise or anything else. The morning ritual establishes the miliue wherein the rest of the day resides. Meanwhile, the morning ritual is time devoted to my personal well-being and aims to expand my own ideas of what is possible to achieve. The way of accomplishing this is by focusing on personal development, physical exercise and meditation. Through an established morning ritual I will get more energy and gain more insightfullness. Moreover I will also increase my ability to streamline all my projects and sub-projects according to my whishes and my true self.

Motto

”With a set morning ritual I will greatly increase my exponential growth towards a more fullfilled happier self”

 

#2: Iceland by Wheels

Timeline: Iceland by Wheels begun as a project in February 2016. Its active phase involved biking across Iceland, a journey which ended up with a total distance of 890K. From August 2016, there are still some final parts to finalize before the project itself is completed. These include setting up a photo gallery, arrange a short movie and a final blogpost about the adventure.

  • Products nr of photos/film/articles/blogposts

  • Time h/m

What is it? A 790K MTB adventure, crossing Iceland, from northwest to southeast. The journey goes through one of the largest dessert and high plateaus of Europe.

Why am I doing it? To cross Iceland is a personal challenge and a tough physical test. Iceland by Wheels is about being capable to execute a greater and longer expedition under difficult circumstances without giving up, and with a large dose of determination. The project aims to increase my level of competence within the field of adventurism, to enhance my know-how in preparing and planning adventures and to set the stage for many more adventures to come. Iceland by Wheels will be done with a sense of ease and with a smile on my lips even at its toughest moments. At the end of Iceland by Wheels, there shall be a desire for more experiences to come. Iceland by Wheels is a source of inspiration for my self, but shall also be a source of inspiration to others. The end goal is to promote self-awareness, self-confidence, and goal orientation.

Motto

“I will through Iceland by Wheels boost my expertise within the field of adventurism ten-fold. The knowledge gained constitutes an invaluable asset onto the path leading towards my future dreams”

Sub-projects of Freedom

#1: Passive Income

Timeline: The goal from 2016, until the end of 2017 is to receive enough passive income to cover all passive expenses. Passive expenses are those which does not give any extra energy, essentially the necessities of life such as rent and food. My goal for 2017 is to have a passive income per month of 20 000 SEK, before tax.

  • Cashflow

What is it? Passive income essentially means to receive a return on investments. Receive enough return, and you will be able to use your active time to better use. The end goal is that the passive income will cover all expenses

Why am I doing it? The idea of passive income challenges the preconceptions of modern society, that is, having a secure, safe job for 40 hours a week, and enjoying a few weeks of vacation each year. Life is too short and valuable for such an approach. With a passive income I want to promote my possibilities to pursue my dreams in life for a more fulfilled existence, while also dedicating myself to my passions and interests for the betterment of all.

Motto

“Passive income is an essential and liberating step towards a more fulfilled life according to the wishes of my inner self.”

#2: Ultreia-x

Timeline: Ultreia-X is my website and company, set up in October 2015. The site will continously evolve.

  • Time h/m

  • Concept presentations given

  • Number of income funnels through Ultreia-X

What is it? Ultreia-X is a conceptual framework wherein I use my talent and interest in sports, adventure and health in combination with my interest for writing and usage of creative media. Ultreia-X is also my company, set up in October 2015.

Why am I doing it? Ultreia-X is a manifestation of my core talents and interests, essentially my passions. By displaying everything I do online through this site and other project sites I aim to inspire others. Moreover, by declaring my goals and how to achieve these publicly I attach myself to their realization propelling the attainment of my dreams even further. Ultreia-X is in other words a beneficial team effort between me as its creator and all of its visitors.

Motto

“Through Ultreia-X as a conceptual framework for health, sports and adventure, I live my dream and follow my passion”

#1: Raising funds fighting Cancer

Timeline: The project is closely connected to the sub-project Iceland by Wheels. The goal for the fundraising is 35 000 SEK. The fundraising has been going on since around June 2016. The fundraising will end as soon as the full amount is reached. To donate, see The Swedish Cancer Society. For more information, see Iceland by Wheels.

  • Funds raised

What is it? Raising funds fighting cancer is closely connected to the sub-project Iceland by Wheels. The end goal is to raise 35 000 SEK.

Why am I doing it? My dad passed away in 2012, causing lots of turmoil within the family, shaking it to its very core. Ultreia-X is largely a result of his passing and my realization that we all, only live once. Through Ultreia-X, and Iceland by Wheels, I wish to inspire others so they can pursue their dreams. However, not all of us have the same possibilities. Some of us have to overcome life-threatening obstacles on our way. By raising funds to fight cancer I wish to be a positive force in this struggle and raise awareness of its impact on those affected.

Motto

“By raising funds to fight cancer I help those who need it the most while also promoting the need to live your life to the fullest”

#2: Sub-project Active Inspiration

Timeline: For the rest of 2016, and the length of 2017, my aim is to reach a certain amount of people, according to the following table. The site and the means by which to reach others will continously be developed.

  • Amount of positive feedback

  • Amount of people participating in presentations

What is it? Through Ultreia-X and all my endeavors I aim to inspire others to take action and pursue their dreams

Why am I doing it? My areas of strength and knowledge are within health, sports and adventure, with special focus on endurance. I wish to instill in others the spirit of exploration and discovery of this great planet of ours and of themselves and their capabilities. We are all great vehicles of achievement and the only limits we face are those we impose on ourselves.

Motto

“All people have great potential, if I can be part of their journey that is reward enough”
