Today is the BIG World Cup Foosball match between USA and Deutschland in Brazil! It is especially big for me as I live both in Loveland, Colorado and Berlin, Germany. As a Life Coach I couldn’t help but reflect upon my own personality and the values of both countries that make up who I am. I’m definitely an American “out-of-the-box-thinker.” I find German directness refreshing and more suitable to my personality as I hate doubletalk. Living in Germany along with age has softened my American attitude of culture superiority as I have morphed from a more restricted religious thinking and set of beliefs to a less conservative more spiritual openness. I have learned hands-on about individual tolerance and embracing diversity. My journey is what has made me the great Life Coach that I am. Good Luck to both USA and Deutschland! I’ll be watching!
