My background & my realization

As I guess many people did, I did what it took to “have a good and safe job”. Right after high school, I carried on with studies because that is “what we are supposed to do”… After 5 years, I graduated as a mechanical engineer, which I quite enjoyed, but it was not my true passion. I didn’t know it yet but something was wrong for me.

So 3 months after graduating, I found my first job, then I found another job, with a better situation, and I am not complaining, I did not have any financial issues. I bought my first motorcycle, I bought my first powerful PC, and I was in the professional life! But after 3 years of work, I was starting to realize that I was not fulfilled at all.

I had money in my bank account, I had savings, but my life felt empty. I was waking up every morning, not wanting to go to work. Indeed, I was working in an Oil & Gas company, so not very environmentally friendly, I was not feeling fulfilled and happy at all in this company. Besides my job, I had very little energy to go out, socialize, and do things that I enjoyed and that matter to me!

Then I realized that if I carried on, in 5 years or so, I would be miserable, unhappy, and all dedicated to a job that I don’t even care about. I was starting to be afraid to ruin my life and not accomplish anything. I couldn’t stand anymore to drift without purpose through my own existence! So along with a colleague of mine, we decided to quit our job, and take a big break in our lives: we went traveling for one year in New Zealand!

It was a wonderful year, which showed me that there is more to life than just work for something you don’t care, and my taste for freedom was definitely there!

The Shift

So when  I came back in France, it was impossible to go back to a 9 to 5 job, working for someone else, not having time for myself, for my happiness, and patiently waiting for my retirement to finally enjoy life. I then started to look for solutions online, but I didn’t even know what to look for! I started with “How to find your life purpose” or “How to earn your living and have time” (yeah I was pretty desperate!), and a few months went by, I didn’t know where I was going, but I was searching.

It was when the journey of self-discovery and personal development started. I slowly discovered that I could be able to build a life of my own. So I enrolled in an online training to build a business around my interests, around my passion.

Slowly, I realized I was passionate about personal development, about the mind, and about how to help people. I discovered that what I enjoy the most is being able to talk about the real stuff in life, and live a meaningful life. So many of us are feeling trapped, not fulfilled, and I didn’t want this for me, and I don’t want this for anybody.

My life now

That’s how I transitioned to becoming a therapist. I’m now studying all the ways I can improve my life, overcome challenges, and most importantly, help people to do the same! If I can make people feel good about themselves, that’s the most wonderful thing is the world. Changing the world, one people at a time!

If you want to be part of this journey, you’re in the right place! I’m sharing tools and methods to overcome challenges and to live a meaningful life.

So welcome on my website! Thank you for being here!
