Ben’s fitness story:
I did sports since the age of 4 as my mom was a sports teacher but I was very skinny and underweight . At the age of 17, my doctor prescribed that I lift weights as I had very weak joints and easily got injured and it has changed my life since then, I made my weakness into a strength and it helped me in all areas of life.
I use music+video to share my passion for self development using sports but also general challenges of life to grow, transform yourself everyday. In Germany, some of my videos went viral and reached 500.000 views. I have now started similar videos with my wife Dina to inspire and motivate everyone out there that need it.
Where do you draw your inspiration from?
My own struggles and challenges, learning how to solve my problems by research and studying gets me excited to learn more and grow more but more importantly it inspires me to share it with those that are where I used to be and reinforces it for myself and acts as a reminder.
What’s your key to your success?
“Constant and never ending growth “, I never think that I know everything or that I have reached a summit. There is always more to discover about yourself and the world around you, that keeps me humble and curious, talking is good but active listening is my key to success.
What was the best advice you were ever given?
If you say you can’t you are right and if you say you can you are also right. Your thoughts control your actions and your actions control your destiny so be very careful what you tell yourself and don’t let anyone else tell you what you can or can’t do. – Tony Robbins
Do you have a phrase or motto you live your life by?
I win or I win because I have nothing to loose. ( Ben Ouattara – IAMPOSSIBLE : as song I wrote )
