Hi there, I’m Peter Erlandsson!
First off, a warm welcome to you, I’m really happy you found your way to Lifestyle Refinery. That means you’re enthusiastic about reaching your full potential and create a life of abundance and total freedom. Awesome!
Most of us go through the challenging journey called life, often asking ourselves how we can improve the quality of it, and how we can tap into that raw potential that we suspect lies hidden deep within us, but often struggling to find the right answers.
Of course, the things we wish for vary from one person to another, but surely most of us dream about that radical change that involves career, money, love, relationships and health.
I bet you wanna wake up every morning feeling fulfilled and looking forward to the day ahead like a 10 year old on Christmas Day. Not worrying about money, with a clear idea of what your true purpose is. I know I do.
What’s holding us back then? Usually it’s the lack of knowledge, confidence, time or money. Or all of the above.
For many of us it seems almost silly to desire all of those things, greedy almost, and we end up accepting that we’re not part of the “one percent” that seem to know the secret formula. We accept it, and we move on…still clinging to our dreams.
Well, what if there was a way? What if a path to all of the above was clearly mapped out and presented to you? Would you embrace the change?
I wouldn’t be surprised if I heard a “hell yeah”! Now, the reason I ask is because real change requires real work. If you’re looking for a “get rich and happy really quickly” type thing, then chances are this is not for you. The purpose of this website is to inspire you and keep you informed, as well as to illuminate some absolutely fantastic opportunities out there, so that you can decide for yourself on how you can create the life you deserve.
I know what you’re thinking (and rightly so), if something sounds too good to be true it generally is. Right? Not always, not this time. Sometimes good things present themselves, but may require an open mind and a willingness to take action.
I’m also a natural born sceptic, from top to bottom, so I totally get it if some of you don’t open your arms and move in for the bear hug right away, and that’s cool. Who am I to make bald claims about finding abundance and true purpose in life, right?
Well, I’m really just a regular guy. And by that I mean I’m not a professor, scientist, author, psychologist or in any way someone with a wall full of diplomas who claim to have exact knowledge about people, how they think and what makes them tick.
I am however someone who has spent the better part of the last 20 years trying re-invent myself, and trying to find as many answers as possible to all the questions I’ve had, about me, about life and how I could really make all my crazy, far-fetched dreams come true. And through some painful failures, and a few inspiring successes, I’ve found some stuff really worth sharing…
It has of course been a road with many bumps, and utter failures. But also with moments of extraordinary clarity and life changing truths, and it is my distinct pleasure to share those insights with you, so that you can make some really good decisions about creating the life you want. Remember, real change requires real work.
So, who is Peter Erlandsson?
I was born 1974 in Sweden.
I’m happily married since 2006, and have two fantastic children.
My priorities in life:
Family, Love, Integrity, Success and Freedom (in no particular order)
Most of my school years were spent on cruise control, without any care or thought about the future. It would work out, something would come up.
As always for people who expect life to just “happen to them”, it never does, and this painful realisation actually sent me right back to school. At the age 23 I started studying Hotel Management in a private school in Switzerland, and I had my sights set on a glamorous career in the world’s fanciest hotels. The world was my oyster. At least it was for a while.
I spent 8 years working abroad in the hospitality industry, tending to the needs of the rich and famous. My career was going quite well, but as exciting as this was (just trust me, it was…), there was something missing. Fulfillment.
A growing sense of not feeling fulfilled soon turned in to sleepless nights, and despite all the excitement and a good salary, I just couldn’t justify working 60-65 hours a week and never have any time for my self, to fully enjoy life.
The prospect of ever having kids, or even getting married for that matter, seemed very distant. And it made me really sad, and really made me doubt the choices I had made.
Since then I have re-invented myself many times over in my pursuit of the lifestyle I had envisioned for myself, you know, money, freedom, purpose, confidence and tons of energy. It lead of course to more education and better paying jobs, buying the house, raising a family, inching closer and closer to the dream.
But still…still something was missing. I just wasn’t excited about life, and where it was headed. I wasn’t free
I wise man told me long ago: “Life is not about finding yourself, it’s about creating yourself”. Now, I have actually come to realise that this is absolutely true. It just took me long enough to understand it.
Which more or less brings us to today, and to you dear reader (thanks for hanging in there). Let me ask you this: Do you also feel that you deserve much more, and that there is a hidden life in store for you, just waiting to be found? Are you also tired of being stuck with a job you may not like, and tired of not having the freedom you want and not being the person you intended to be?
How about that! Then we share many of the same thoughts you and I, so let’s at least explore the possibility of working together. That’s my purpose!
