About Me

If you are reading this something intrigued you somewhere else on the world wide web, or on this website, and you wanted to know a bit more about me.

So, here we go…

I study the Human Being by studying myself – carefully – and by studying others as well.

I’ve always liked to ponder weighty questions, like: “Why I do the things that I do?”, Why was I put on this planet?”, “Why were we all put on this planet?”, “Why is the human animal so destructive?”, “What is the meaning of life?”, “What does it mean to live a good life?” And, so on.

Athleticism has always been a part of my life.

In the fist part of my life, it was all about how I looked. That was mainly what I leaned on for confidence and ability to function among other fellow humans. In the later part of my life, my growth focus is on the Spiritual as well as on the Physical level.

On a purely physical level, my current interests lie in being functionally able, efficient, skillful and athletic.

On a spiritual level, my work looks like re-discovery of my most complete and authentic self by removing self-resistance and by regaining my innocence and freedom – the attributes I showed up with in this world, but later lost under the guidance of well-meaning adults, and by social pressure to conform.

The primary subjects of interest to me these days are Self-resistance, Ego-governed fears, Self-image health, Clarity of purpose and vision.

I read a lot about human psychology and metaphysics – self, fear, courage, success, inner strength, fulfillment, freedom. I study what makes us function better as human beings, what makes us the bearers of progress in the world rather than only selfish consumers of resources (which we are). I strive to grow my part of the first category and to diminish my role in the second.

I was born in Bulgaria, a small country in East Europe.

I grew up under the Communist rule. My father was a local communist leader. I was going to become a communist leader had democracy not displaced communism when I was 15 and a half.

I immigrated to the United States when I was 28 – with a relatively poor command in English regardless of studying it seriously before I departed (languages have always interested me but I’ve never excelled in learning them).

Inspiring and empowering others as I empower myself is what drives me. It’s what makes me do what I do.

I consider my top roles in life to be the following: a role model, a teacher, an influencer, and an entrepreneur.

Noble purpose: To be happy and joyful. To uplift and empower. To move and be moved.

Vision: To increase my wealth in the areas of money, relationships, knowledge, and spirituality so that I can be more of what I already am.

Current mission: I challenge myself daily to step to the edge of my comfort zone and experience the unfamiliar!

That’s me.

If there is something in what you read above that resonates with you, and that you will benefit from if you stuck around a bit longer then stick around. Glad to have you.

I am inspired and moved when I find others who’s goals in life are similar to mine, as I know that the more people with the same strong desire to self-rediscover and improve – on physical and spiritual / mind level – the greater the positive impact on humanity we’ll all have.
