Are you Samuel Rosenberg's mother

Why it makes you stronger when you show your vulnerability.

I arrived too early, I was wrong about the date. I took it as a sign of my current state of mind; I am there for myself too quickly, too much and too little. For this reason I went to the Peak Perspective Hike, here in Mallorca. With these wonderful people whom I have been able to see so real and clearly in the last few days.


It drove me crazy never to know the exact way Not being able to give my controlling mind the satisfaction of answers and control. But that was an important part of the journey, if you really get involved, the answers will come.


Just as I was there too early at the beginning of the trip, I had too much luggage with me at the beginning of the hike. Fortunately, I was able to intuitively leave my B + O Noise Canceling headphones and a few clothes in the car. Nevertheless, the blisters on my feet never stopped, the pain in the joints and the sore muscles in all places where the backpack touched my back. The strong support from you Jochen, Johanna and Marcus was fantastic, but tougher than any Mallorcan oak and harder than the sharpest stone my perseverance of excuses and explanations on your clever coaching questions. I'm so sorry and uncomfortable with how much space I've taken up with it; for you coaches, but above all for my development here.


Because the new aspects that I discovered in myself were amazing. I would never have thought that I would meet my twelve-year-old self and that the answer to a seemingly insoluble question would be so simple.


We all went on our own hero's journey, shielded each other from time to time, wanted to be alone, needed a conversation or needed a hug. But how great was this additional level to be able to reflect in the fellow campaigner, to be able to see one's own past and maybe also one's future.


Nevertheless, one of the most important aspects that I perceived about myself was that I was on my own, felt myself during intense physical exertion or in a Rifugio Dormroom, where forests were sawed off in my sleep and the lights did not go out at night. I have learned to give up the duty to function and to be completely with myself.


I never thought that would be my most important question for this trip; how I can balance my strengths and use them better is answered surprisingly. I can now see that my high energy and the will to use it for ideas, projects and my coachees, to a not inconsiderable part, evaporates because I do not allow myself to be completely there, even with my gentleness and my sadness. The fear is too great that by contacting my vulnerable feelings, I could take away my strength for myself.


As of today, the question of what is holding me back will not be answered with another “faster” and “further”, but with one "Stop."


If I spoke to myself from the future today, at this point, I would give you some advice on Mallorca, it would be: "Hey boy, look around. You are complete, stop kicking like that, it only gives bubbles. You achieve more by allowing yourself to be there with all your parts, that is your key to success. "


I am deeply touched, thank you for getting to know you wonderful souls, and go home with so much more than I came. Thanks.
