»A European with an Asian mind«

Bernhard began traveling through Asia at a time when countries like Laos or Vietnam were still off-limits to foreigners. Over the course of more than 15 years spent on this captivating continent, he gathered valuable experiences, overcame significant challenges, and eventually learned to think and act like an Asian. As time went on, he internalized the Eastern way of thinking to such an extent that a Chinese master referred to him as a »European with an Asian spirit«.

Success stems from your thoughts

The six fundamental insights

Reality is constructed within your mind. You can alter it there.

Always be aware of the genuine motivation behind your choices.


Asking »how« propels you forward. Asking »if« hinders progress.


Surrendering is both an offense and a defense.

All power originates from within, even the power that can bring about your downfall.

You are not invulnerable either. Embrace failure as a lesson.
