- What happened?
- Where is he?
- What happened to The Morten Hake Summit?
- Where is he going with his life?
- Is he still doing transformational events and coaching?
- What’s Morten’s philosophy in life now, and how can I benefit from his content?
30 Day Challenge
The next 30 days, I’ll be posting here on my website every single day in an attempt to re-engage contact with you as well as my inner content-creator. It’s an experiment and I need your trust and strong support. Sticking to something for 30 days might sound easy, but in my experience, it’s not just a walk in the park.
My aim is to answer all of the above bullet-questions more properly and clearly. As of now, you can get some of the questions answered in the podcast with Ankush Jain, the one with Julian, and in the one with Dave. All of them great, GREAT content if I do say so myself. And all of them have the real potential to blow your socks off. So let’s jump in…
Why have I been absent here?
As you might know, I got deeply involved in personal growth when I jumped on a 6-month coaching course back in 2008. The coaching course was run by Danish dating-coach Neil Natura, and I soon became his entourage sort of speak as I emptied my own cup of knowledge and absorbed his dating skills, his business skills, his public speaking skills, his marketing skills and his mental attitude towards success really fast.
I started working for his company for a while before I branched off to start on my own, doing life-coaching and dating advice. I saw real potential in what I’d learned and believed I could create an amazing, free and inspiring platform that would help men and women connect better.
When Knut (You probably know Knut!), a fellow student of Neil, later approached me to work together with the vision of improving the educational system by implementing more personal growth in schools, I was hooked and we started creating real ripples. Sometimes we worked 18 hours a day to build our own little school sort of speak. You might know what I talk about;
Passion Immersion was our attempt to create a “success school”. Students jumped on for a semester and moved into an apartment together to focus on laying the groundwork for success and start making their passion into their livelihood. Knut and I did our absolute best to instill them with world-class successfu
l mental attitude with lots of help from our own mentors at the time. That meant the students had to exercise and do affirmations every single morning. They studied action-oriented success-principles and welcomed guest-speakers and professionals from all over the world who taught their art. They overcome social shyness with approaching and attracting strangers and attended and created personal growth events and lots more. It was busy months, to say the least.
However, it was actually really, really cool and transformational! I must say it was one of the most colorful and most educational periods of my life.
The Morten Hake Summit
During that period, I had already decided that I was going to create a gathering for all of you here reading on this blog so that fitted perfectly with my new partnership with Knut. We created the Morten Hake Summit while running The Passion Immersion for three consecutive years if I remember correctly.
This was an amazing period in my life. It was also a very challenging period as I had a lot of responsibility, and my ego it seemed grew bigger by the day. A lot of eyeballs was pointed my way, and I I felt pressured to manage and control all the attention.
It was an interesting experience, as we had purposefully created a personal brand and a business – mainly to be able to have a voice in this world and create positive impact. At the same time, the personal brand also became an alter ego for me sort of speak. I felt a lot of pressure as of how to behave. To always be right, and to always do the right things. It looked to me as if I had to live up to my own and others expectations. In a business created out of fun and the ability to fail with laughter, I was
all of a sudden taking myself and my business very seriously and felt the need to control my circumstances and micro-manage others – in order not to make any mistake.
And as soon as the fear of failing overrides the joy of succeeding, the process is no longer fun.
See, we are built to thrive. Built to enjoy growth. We are growth really. We are the same life force as you see in a flower blossoming. Or that baby’s ability to learn so quickly. It’s not that we have this power within us, it’s that we are this power. I didn’t see that clearly at the time.
Our fear of failure is our ego’s way of trying to hold on to its illusion of existence. This Morten here writing to you really wants to matter. The same goes with you. So much so, that the illusion of who we think we are can get in the way of who we really are. Get it? If not, that’s OK. Keep reading my blog.
I understood something life-changing…
I realized this at the fourth annual Morten Hake Summit. For the first time in a while, I woke up to the fact that my mind, my ego, my personality was painting the experience I perceived. To put in other words, I realized we are consciousness. We are God if you will. There’s this non-dual oneness that is our essence. I am not who I think I am. I am so much more. I am raw potential. This moment really is the only life there is. Formless energy coming alive through us. We experience this with our senses – with who we think we are. Are you with me?
And that’s pretty much it. We are thought. We are consciousness. We are mind. They are all one energy. As we all are this energy, frequencies, or waves really. We all know this from birth. We take it for granted. So much so that we tend to forget it at times. Then we get caught up in life. In ideas that something is important. That things are right or wrong. While, when we remember who we really are, we fall right back to peace, and our lives make sense again.
So what happened after this realization? My entire life pretty much flipped upside down overnight, and I’ll tell you all about it.. tomorrow! 🙂
