Karim’s beliefs


  1. I believe there is limitless opportunity for growth and expansion in our lives and in the world. The only barrier to growth is us.
  2. I believe that we all appear on earth with a purpose. Finding and living that purpose is our noblest calling.
  3. I believe that the faster we want to move in life, the more regularly we must slow down completely to pause, reflect and recharge.
  4. I believe that each of us has a powerful light within us. When we let that light shine, we illuminate the world. This light helps us co-create our world, making our most audacious dreams possible.
  5. I believe that it is possible to live every day in flow. Connected, peaceful, and stress free.

The first step to a lifetime of balance, fulfilment and happiness is knowing where you are today in all areas of your life. The 50 Question Life Scorecard will help you easily pinpoint your current situation, in 10 minutes or so.


You are possibly a focused, driven and often overly challenged professional, someone in transition, or someone who simply knows that there is more to life than your current situation. But you may be questioning the purpose of your life, and the impact you’re making in the world. You possibly have difficulty balancing the intellectual, emotional, spiritual and physical aspects of your life.

Virtually everyone faces these situations at some point or other in their life. Why? Because like you, they usually lack a Success Blueprint that gives them clarity, confidence and the framework, attitude, skills and tools (F.A.S.T.) to get there.
