3. Be Without Fixed Points
A point of view is a position from
which something is observed.
It´s a particular way of looking at
something. When you say: “He is
so…”, or “It is like it is…”, or “We
always do it like this because it
was or is functioning well”, or “He/
she will never change” then you
have fixed points of view. This
is where you create a limitation
because you cannot be aware
of any other choice, possibility
or contribution. This is the place
where you can get stuck in
Ask yourself: What could I be
aware of that I don´t be aware of?
4. Be the Question
The purpose of a question is to
expand awareness, not to get an
answer as we are used to. It is a
step towards becoming aware of
Normally leaders in all positions
force themselves to have all
the answers. That leads to a
bottleneck within a company
because employees are
disenabled on one hand and on
the other they are held responsible
for specific things without having

answer. You want to be the
question. When you are being

You ask: “What else is possible?”
Curiosity is expansive. You have
no conclusion. You don’t want to
get the “right” answer or give the
“right” answer. You ask questions
to empower others to find their
own way of being or doing what

that you don´t even know you are
capable of? What creates the future?
Your choice creates the future.
You make a choice today and
your future gets created by your
choice. Each choice creates a
lot of possibilities. From those
possibilities you again have at
least ten more choices. And so
on. You have to choose. Every
day again and again. It´s not
something that is finished or
complete like people with a
start-and stall-system which
means working like crazy and
then doing nothing. Creating
your life, your business and your
relationship is something ongoing.
Don´t ask: “What do I need to
complete today?” Rather, ask
●● What else do I have to
●● What else can be created
●● Which one of these choices is
going to create what I/we want
6. Be the One Who Breaks
●● Always look for ways that no
one would have the courage to
●● Go over the structures which
●● Don´t buy the story that other
people are telling you of what
is possible and what is not.
●● Use every “problem” as a

what you are capable of being
and doing every single day.
●● Don’t be a maybe – there are
