I have a beautiful wife, two beautiful sons, three beautiful dogs, three beautiful cats, live in a beautiful house, drive a beautiful car, so to cut a long story short life is beautiful… So who will be interested in my story? I think many should, while the lifetime risk of being confronted with a serious life threatening disease is much higher than people expect, playing French roulette has less chance on getting the right number.
Or shall I say Russian roulette?
Admitted I am a gastronomist, I still am…, drink wine, like good food and honestly in the past I used drugs as well, I lived a life full of temptation, addiction, pleasure and seduction. I sincerely thought that hard work and stress had to be balanced with relaxation in ways businessmen do… at least that´s how I deceived my inner voice.
We are all victim of a changed world, where the price of a Big Mac is even used as a global inflation index. The evolution of consumption, how I call it, has influenced these little voices inside of us. Do I feel sorry for myself? Absolutely not! One can´t change the past, only the future and I use the power of now, to still plan ahead, dream, believe, create, love and sing Frank Sinatra’s “My way”
I decided to apply, the passion and drive I do business with, in my disease, as a way of managing it and accepting the challenge that lies ahead, aiming to be as successful as in business.
I live a life thats full….with love and ALS
