Daily habit to unleash your full potential

Do you want to have a good life? Succeed in your goals? I want to share my daily 2-step habit how to unleash your full potential. It takes only 10 minutes. That equals 0,7 % of your daily time. So no excuses, start today. I hope this helps you as much as it has helped me!

1. Morning

Focus your mind towards gratitude, positivity and goals that are important to you first thing in the morning. (5 min)

2. Evening

Write down one thing you learned daily in the evening just before you go to sleep. (5 min)


This method activates subconsciousness to work for your  and therefore it activates 95 % of your potential. (A study by Harvard Business School) Your life will change for good, if you persist and follow this simple habit. I have now tried it for more than a year, and it is a fantastic way to clarify your thoughts and make life much more inspiring.

Thanks to my family, parents and relatives, students and colleagues, Napoleon Hill, Brian Tracy, Jaakko Alasaarela, Antti Haapsaari, Ilpo Kärkkäinen, Kyla Mitsunaga (just to mention a few) and all the inspiring people I have had the honor to learn from and discuss regarding these themes. You have given me the inspiration towards this lifestyle.

Have a great weekend and remember to pay attention to your thoughts, as ultimately you become what you think about. 🙂

Ilkka Kurkela suggest to focus on positivity!

 Enjoy your life and stay positive no matter what life throws at you!

You have what it takes

Focus and determine your goals, believe in them, and don’t let anything stop you.

When you face difficulties, always persist, until you succeed at achieving a goal that is important to you.

Create a pattern of success that reinforces itself. Especially, when you repeat it over and over again.

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. And you will become the success that you dream off.

Below is a picture of one of the greatest challenges and success in my life, completing the Boston Marathon 1996 at the age of 14 together with my father. This day changed my life. Impossible. 

Wishing you a lot of determination in achieving your dreams – believe that you have what it takes!
