The Bathtub Was My Office For The Past 4 Months #MotivationMonday

My Bathtub = Office For The Past 4 Months #MondayMotivation

Did you know…that 35% of my work was done from the bathtub (in the past 4 months)?


Let’s back up a little. I’ve been having eye pain for a year, on and off, but since October 2016 my eyes hurt every day for about 80% of the day and no eye doctor could figure out why.

Meanwhile, I’ve found out that it’s because of candida overgrowth which led to colon and liver problems (and of course, also because emotional pain that I needed to deal with). I am getting better and better, but because the health issue is about 10 years old, it takes a while.

Hot water relaxes my body and my eyes and I can work, sometimes for 20min other times for 120min.

From my bathtub, I was able to finish a free video course for new coaches and to put together a new service where I create websites for coaches. And I’ve even created half of my clients’ website from the bathtub.

A lot of the landing pages, email automation, ideas, copywriting has been written from my bathtub.


This only proves that if you want something bad enough, you’ll find ways to make it happen.

Life is not always fair (or at least that’s what we think). When this happens, we have two options: to fight it or accept* it.

*For perfectionists: acceptance doesn’t come easily, it takes months for it to settle in, and even once you get it, it’s not like you can’t lose it again for a few hours or even days.

Are you a perfectionist? Join my 60min free training here.

Once you let go of that rage of “it’s not f$*^ing fair” and of the need to blame someone (especially yourself), you will be able to start living again and you will be able to prove to yourself that you can do much greater things than you ever thought possible.

I didn’t think I can last a month with this pain, yet here I am, 13 months later, still going, stronger than ever. But I am not the same person who started the journey. Not even close.


I believe in destiny, I believe that everything happens for a reason.

And it did.

I needed this forced break to heal the past, deal with stuck emotions and trauma,  learn new ways to live my life and ultimately, re-structure my entire thought process so that I can really live the life I’ve always dreamed of.

You see, this happened because of me, but not in a bad-pity-like way, but in the most beautiful way possible.

I wanted to live a full life, I wanted to experience great success, but I couldn’t do that with that body, those thought patterns & beliefs. So the Universe provided me with the path of least resistance to get to my dreams. (#ThankYouAbrahamHicks)


I feel deep gratitude to have found work that gives me so much pleasure that I just can’t stay away from it and this is part of why I am working with new coaches and helping them build their business because I know most of them feel the same kind of gratitude but they sometimes lack the knowledge and support to move forward with their dream.

Gratitude (& my amazing wife) saved me, that’s why I am ending every day with a list of 3+ things that I am grateful for.

There’s always something to be grateful for.

Hope my story has inspired you to start this week on a positive note and move past any problems that you are facing.

Much love.
