Throughout the years I realized that most of the time we don’t ask ourselves such essential questions as ‘Why do I live?’, ‘What is the meaning I give to my Life?’, ‘Why do I do what I do?’
It’s often not until Life confronts us with ourselves, gently or roughly, through defeat, failure, loss, (mental or physical) illness, accidents, … that we start thinking about the meaning we give to our Life.
As for myself, my real questioning why I live and what noble purpose I want to have in Life, started in Bogota, Colombia, in January 1994 after a violent kidnapping by the FARC.
Ever since that kidnapping and the intense moments of continuous reflection, self-confrontation and contemplation that followed the years after, I gradually started discovering my path. I started dedicating my Life to inspiration and to what became my noble purpose: inspiring high impact leaders around the globe to create beauty, harmony and joy for the progress and well-being of Humankind, Society and the World.
As an engaged entrepreneur, dedicated activist and author of The Book of Noble Purpose, my focus is to bring, in one or another way, noble purpose to Humankind, to society and into the business world.
Being the source of several enterprises, organizations, initiatives and projects, I use these as a pragmatic way to spread the power of inspiration and noble purpose. GINPI, the Global Inspiration & Noble Purpose Institute, which I founded in 2010, is my main activity for now. It’s a global partnership through which we bring the House of Noble Purpose methodology to the world of high impact leaders, decision makers and influencers.
Through my website you will discover who I am and what I stand for, and what we do and how we do it.
It all starts from a personal story. My story. A subjective and colored story, just like yours.
And bit by bit what I believe in, defend and promote got structured through GINPI, Wisdom Encounters, Young Leaders-Inspiring Mentors, the Cellura & Onghena Foundation, CoBrAS, Forbidden Colours, e.a.
Welcome in my universe and my dedication to Life, to beauty, to harmony and to joy!
Welcome in the journey of noble purpose transformation of the individual, the collective, the organization and the society!
