Hi, I’m the icebreaker above, Beat (pronounced B@) Schindler, human and natural. Not quite as small as depicted above, I’m the author of THE STORY OF THE WORLD (ACCORDING TO WORDS), SPONTANEOUS ACTION, and a host of other books.
Growing up surrounded by farms and forests–a children’s paradise–I dreamed of becoming a wolf in Jack London’s books, a native American, cowboy, or rock star, prayed for the power of the invisible man, and expected to have a happy life handed to me on a silver platter.
For much of my adult life, I have loved abroad. Now I love back in Biel-Bienne, Switzerland, near family and friends, in a place with high ceilings, near the lake.
Everybody wants somebody to love, buy the things money can buy, make the world a better place, and fulfill the purpose of their life.
Sometimes all four. In other words, I’m no different.
Before trusting my own eyes again, I used to invest my energy, time, and money on reading a thousand-plus books and attending seminars to study with world-famous authors, motivational speakers, corporate trainers, and entrepreneurs… which cost me an arm and a leg and took forever but included travel to exotic places I would otherwise not have known existed, and was worth every penny for it changed my life for the better forever and a day.
But I didn’t find what I was looking for and instead lost everything money can buy.
It’s only when I changed the way I look at words that I got the ultimate breakthrough I had been looking for all my life.
The breakthrough I now never leave home without.
I’m excited to be your guide.
