“I’ve expanded my horizons; now it’s your turn”
Are you a champion at avoiding change? Do you love your comfort zone? What happened to those days when you wanted to be an astronaut, pilot, or even world-famous? Expanding your horizons doesn’t stop as you grow up.
If there’s one thing I learned during my professional career, it’s that you can achieve a lot more than you think. As long as you’ve got the right mindset. I am living proof of this.
A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes.
What is your mindset?

The right mindset took me all the way to the top
The will to succeed
I found a way to apply the mindset model to myself in 2017. My goal: climb Mount Kilimanjaro (the highest mountain in Africa). I had two options: I could easily get out of it by convincing myself that I’d never be able to do it. Or I could start out with a positive mindset and the will to succeed. I chose the second option.
Moved and happy
I went step by step, starting with my physical fitness first. The fitter I was, the more motivated and healthier I would be. In January 2018, just before I started my journey, I weighed in 20 kg lighter. The climb itself turned out to a serious trial, but ultimately, I summitted thanks to my positive mindset.
31 January 2018, 7 a.m., at the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro: the sun is rising and the view is magnificent. I am moved and happy.

Luc demonstrated a keen interest in the practices and application of NLP in his various work areas. He is a very capable coach and demonstrates great skill at utilising 'Milton' language patterns.
I really appreciated his quick integration into the team, his broad marketing experience as well as hands on mentality. Luc is also an excellent sparring partner in debates and though discussions.
He integrated very quickly and adopted the company's culture, delivered good quality work and had a very strong added value in the translation of the marketing strategy into sales tactics.
Luc absolutely believes in the principle that every successful (re)action starts with a positive thought. This is a bit easier said than done, but I think it’s an important point of differentiation compared to others.
