4 Secrets to Getting Everything You Want in Life
A Keynote on Facing Challenges for Change and Success
According to conventional thought, other people may satisfy our desires however. Reality appears to be quite different. Dreams and goals can only be fulfilled by taking responsibility for them, through self-determination, hard work and clear structures, says Tonight Show guest Michael Wigge. Equipped with this mindset and a dash of smart groundwork, visions will come true.
Once an excellent, sustainable basis has been created, abilities and talents will find complete expressions. Life chances can be realized and dreams can be lived out in practice.
The sky seems to be Wigge’s limit
Award-winning globetrotter and challenge coach of German descent Michael Wigge lives his dreams and visions, and achieves his outstanding goals. In his book ‘How to Travel the World for Free/PBS’ Wigge traveled without any penny in his pocket – from Europe to Antarctica. He lived with the Sanema Indians in the rainforest, crossed Germany on a Razor scooter in 80 days and became a sumo wrestler in Tokyo for MTV.
Wigge turned his childhood dream of owning a house in Hawaii, into reality – in 42 steps he continously bartered an apple for bigger and better things and ultimately reached his dream (see ′How to Barter for Paradise′).
In his authentic, fascinating, and humorous speech, Michael shares his experiences and breathtaking challenges. He explains how work once again can become ones’ passion and how desire for success can be reignited. The key question: What exactly is the goal?
It sounds so simple, but the more detailed and precise personal objectives are, the more chances open up to completely and satisfactorily hit the target. Michael Wigge feels confident that people who have the drive and determination will more easily turn their dreams into reality. The reason is simple: ambition and discipline.
As a filmmaker for established international TV stations he developed and proofed his ‘4 Secrets to Getting Everything in Life′ with successful career as a result. Additionally, Wigge delivers an enriching exercise aimed at discovering inspiration – to enable people to reach their complete individual potential.
Wigge talks about the importance of reflecting on passions, visions, values, life purpose, and belief systems to get everything you want in life.
Wigge feels qualified to communicate his experiences, because the first part of his life was marked by challenges. He had not been an inspired highschool student, he felt he was never good in what he did until the age of 20. He had the oportunity to study abroad as an exchange student in California and received tremendous inspiration. This experience completely changed his life for the better.
‘I learned to go for whatever I want and I learned a lesson about self-responsibility & inspiration for my later life’
