Nothing is Impossible


I grew up with some handicaps. My teachers wrote” ND has big problems with reading and writing”, they said I was a dyslexic.
I believed them. My grades where bad. Than became worse.

No wonder.
My self-esteem was below zero. I didn’t talk much, because of my insecurity I started to stutter.

I was blocked

Stories always fascinated me. I would think up grand adventures, but I was afraid to write them down.
I couldn’t spell.

Fresh start

At the age of 12 I moved with my family from Switzerland to the USA. Everything was in English now. At first it brought fear to my spelling ability, but I realized that it was a chance to start fresh. No teacher knew that I was a dyslexic. As I learned a new language my stuttering started to disappear. My self-esteem started to grow.

Accepted

When I returned to Switzerland at the age of 15 I had to learn German again. Still afraid of making mistakes I did my minimal and started to use my mouth over writing for communication. I had accepted that I couldn’t write, so I would become a speaker. Working as a salesman and a youth pastor was great. Speaking was my greatest tool. I didn’t have to write a lot, or let someone else do it for me. I had accepted the inability to write.

Overcome

At the age of 36 my life took another turn. My job changed from being a youth pastor to a coach and leader developer. Communication didn’t change right away. I still spoke a lot. More and more people told me, that what I said would be great in writing.

At the end of 2009 I wrote my first blog post.

How To Create More Web Traffic

Blog auf Deutsch.

Here are five stupidly simple ways to attract visitors to your website and keep them coming back.I love this pic. It's incredible what you can do with an iPhone 4.

1. Start a newsletter list

Without a doubt, the number one thing you can do to increase traffic is to start a newsletter list.
Here’s why.
An e-mail list is the best way to build recurring traffic. By sending out e-mails to your newsletter list about new articles on your blog, you can guarantee that visitors will continue to return to your site instead of hoping that people will show up when you have something important to say.

2. Get the word out with guest posts

Guest posting is a simple strategy where you create content such as Continue reading How To Create More Web Traffic

How To Write A Blog Post

Here are 4 ways that have helped me create content for my blog.

1. Make Notes

Go through my notes and harvesting ideas. This, of course, requires that I am actively making notes for blog posts consistently. I am one that needs to take notes, because I have a new thought every 30 seconds and forget almost as quick.

2. Open Mind

Read other blog posts. I spend time simply Continue reading How To Write A Blog Post

ND,
I wanted to share a little about that experience and how you’re involved in it!
I teach students who have specific learning challenges how to be better students and to work with and around their disabilities. 
Today I had the chance to go into one specific classroom and try to help the students understand what’s going on with kids who struggle with academic tasks.
I started off by showing the picture of Continue reading How Do You Use My Posts?

Don’t Believe The Lies

Blog auf Deutsch.

What thoughts have been implanted in Your brain?
What lies are you believing and you don’t even know it?

Lake Powell

«Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.» Proverbs 4:23

Your thoughts are free

You will reap the actions of the thoughts you sow. Nobody decides what you are thinking about. Only you are responsible for your thoughts. It’s your decision what you think about (I mean what you choose to continue to think about). Your situations don’t define your thoughts – you choose what you think in any situation. You are not a victim of your thoughts. You are in control! Continue reading Don’t Believe The Lies

The 100th Blog Posts

This is my blog post Nr. 100. A true milestone!
ND Strupler
If you have asked me 2 years ago, if I would write 100 blog posts. You would have made me laugh and I would probably have said “NO WAY!”

3 Year Strategy

I have made a 3 year strategy for my writing:

1. Year – Blogging
2. Year – Write 2 E-Books for free download
3. Year – My first published book (the topic is still open – not)

Like I said, this is only a plan. Life is much more exiting than making plans. – Thank God.

One Year of Blogging

It’s been one year since my first post.
As I looking back over the last year of over 80 posts on my blog…
Let’s reflect.

Why I started?

Serious, I gave it a lot of thought about why I should start a blog.

  • Ideas
    It seemed like a good idea at the time.

Well, yes, I did think that it was, but that happens every 20 seconds of every day in my brain.

  • Something new
    It’s a value I live by. I will always try out new things.
  • Book
    To start blogging was not suggested to me, but writing a book was. As I read a blog about writing a book it said, if no one reads your blog – don’t write a book.
  • Notes
    I have saved a lot of teaching notes over the last 15 years. I think a blog would make a nice place to keep them.

I gave myself one year to try out this new thing – BLOGGING. If you knew me, you’d know that I am always exited about the next new think. So, the whole idea of creating a consistent blog over a year was a big challenge for me. I made it. Yes!

Why I continue?

At first I had to kick myself in the butt to write a new post. But now over this year, I am more than 2 month ahead. I have 6 – 10 posts lined up, ready to go. Now that’s a miracle. But maybe not. As soon as I understood the release it gives me to get ideas and thoughts out of my head, the more exited I was to write. It lead me to more freedom and openness for new ideas… :)

  • Benefit
    I benefit from getting my thoughts out of my head so I can read it in some kind of a structure.
    Others benefit by being inspired. My wish to inspire and maximize leaders is working.
  • Reflection
    Reading my own thoughts, beliefs and processes gives me a better view of myself. It’s something that I talk about a lot and my blog helps my self-awareness.
  • Book
    Blogging has given me lot’s of new material and insight for the book I want to write.
    I’m getting closer.
  • Sleep
    Getting my thougts out of my head, has helped me to sleep better. Now I don’t need to stay up all night to think about all the possibilities coming to my head. I can write them down and go to sleep.

Good night!
