How Mi365 Took Me From Stress, Depression And Anger To The Person I Want To Be
Hallå! I am Stefan and I live in Stockholm in Sweden.
In the summer of 2015 I was in a mess. I was off work with stress, I was depressed, unfit and sick of life. I was an angry and intolerant father to my two girls and I was everything I didn’t want to be as a person.
Feeling desperate, knowing I needed help, I was searching on Periscope (Twitter’s live broadcast service). I knew I had to make changes in myself and in my beliefs if I was to become the person I wanted to be. Some hunch told me to look at the UK and there, by chance, was Pete Cohen, live from his back garden, talking about becoming a better version of myself. I didn’t know at the time, but this was the first time Pete had ever gone live on Periscope.
Intrigued I began to look out for his broadcasts. I remember those first few weeks really clearly. Pete seemed to be talking just to me and it was exactly what I needed to hear. It all seemed too good to be true so, wondering if this was some kind of scam, I checked him out. I was amazed by what I found of all he had done and achieved, so I started following him in earnest.
That was the start of the most amazing transformation of my life. I soon adopted the tools that Pete was sharing. I began to meditate, to journal and take responsibility for my own development. As I made small steps in my own development, I noticed the difference in how I was feeling both mentally and physically. Then my family noticed it too. I was becoming the husband and father that I wanted to be.
When Mi365 Elite launched in March 2016, I joined at once. I wanted more out of my life and to become the best version of myself that I could. I had goals and ambitions to grow my own business too, and I knew Mi365 could help me. I really went to work on myself.
There are always bumps in the road of life. In the summer of 2016, I bought my ticket to the first Mi365 summit in London. We were planning to go as a family and really looking forward to it. Then, one afternoon, I blacked out. The next few months were a series of scans and test as the doctors tried to figure out what was going on. The support of the Mi365 community was fantastic during what was a worrying time for the family. Because of the uncertainty of what had happened, I was advised not to fly so, in the end I couldn’t go to London. Instead, I made an appearance via Skype to say hello to everyone and was blown away to be awarded Mi365 Member of the Year for 2016. You can listen to the podcast I did with Pete back then.
In the 18 months since then, I have continued to work on myself and to really immerse myself in the Mi365 Masterclasses. Every master class has given me new tools to use and new perspectives. And they aren’t a ‘one time’ thing. Every time I work through a master class again, I learn new things and get new ideas. The Leadership 365 Master Class is probably my favourite. Learning to lead myself and take control of my ego has made a huge difference for me.
I had particular need of it last year when I lost my job and was out of work for several months. It would have been too easy to return to the ‘old Stefan’ from before my time with Mi365 – and he did make an appearance from time to time – but Mi365 had given me the clarity of who I am, the tools to review where I am in any moment and to knowledge to ask “now what needs to be done” to make that next step towards my true goal in life. It gave me confidence too, in seeking out a new job. The easy thing to do would have been to find another job in retail, which was where I had been working before. But this was an opportunity to seek out something new and the job I got has given me new challenges and opportunities in my life.
I came through that challenging time thanks, in no small part, to what I have learned in Mi365. I had come to understand that what I experience and how I experience life is up to me. I now see that the only thing I am in control of in any moment is myself. It is up to me how I choose to feel and respond when things happen that I can’t control and that is a massively empowering realisation.
I truly feel that Mi365 Elite has saved me. It has given me a new lease on life and seen me through some dark times. I have a new job working in sales-support and I am working to become a coach as well. I am continuing to work on myself every day and to challenge myself to become better every day. Mi365 isn’t something I do, it is a part of who I am.
And the learning continues all the time. In this last week, for example, I have had a new understanding of how my ego can work against me and set me on the path to understand my subconscious better and how to work with my own inner self to reach the goals and visions I have of who I want to be and what I want to do.
There are no limits to who I can become with Mi365. The best is yet to come!
