My name is Suzan Yumerova.
I am Turkish, and I was born and grew up in Bulgaria. I graduated from University as a mechanical engineer. I worked as an executive. Then I married and in 2009 came to Berlin. After two years I was with a child on the street, without money, and without knowing the German language. I had many questions about life and its meaning. I started searching and I found a video, where Wolfgang Sonnenburg was explaining the law of attraction.
#WolgangSonnenburg is a Purpose Hacker, Expert in intrinsic motivation, Coach, Speaker, and Founder of the Winspiration Movement.
I searched the loa in English and found the film” The secret”(It is also a book). I saw Bob Proctor.
#BobProctor is a Legend, a Personal development guru,
Bestselling author, business consultant, entrepreneur, and life mentor expert on the human mind and potential. A leader in the power of positive thinking and self-motivation.
I was inspired by Bob Proctor and Wolfgang Sonnenburg. They became my heroes. I decided that if I work someday in Berlin it would be with both my heroes. I did not know how but I knew I am going to make this happen. After that, I began to learn and prepare. After 5 years I got the following certificates: Quality, Finance, and Project manager Train the trainer, Manager, Personal and business coach. Also, I improved my language skills in English and German by #Berlitz. In October 2016 I read online that my heroes are coming to Frankfurt am Main. I went there only to ask them to work together.
It was an incredible time during the Goal Achiever Seminar. After that, I began to live the life of my dreams -working together with them.
On 7 December, I met #AlineBanon and #LindaProctor and they became my business Partner.
She is a Network marketing professional and a Top earner in Europe.
Linda Proctor is the wife of Bob PROCTOR and she is a successful businesswoman.
Now, Bob Proctor (RIP Bob), Linda Proctor, Wolfgang Sonnenberg, and Aline Banon helping people achieve their life goals on Mindset, Health, Wealth, Happiness, Teamwork, and Community and supporting people to go for a better Life.
We are expanding our movement and promoting a healthy, happy, and wealthy lifestyle- a #LiveUnlimited.
There are many books that I can consider have changed my life, from my first Brer Rabbit to Stephen King’s The Stand, as far as reading for pleasure goes it is the being taken on a magic carpet ride, like Aladdin or climbing a beanstock with Jack, MAGIC for me the fascination with Faerie Tales happened with The Margaret Tarrant Book of Fairy Tales. I loved that book so much I was grief stricken when it was given to other children in my family and I never saw it again – it had done it’s job though, Grimm’s Faerie Tales WOW none of this sanitised ‘they lived happily ever after’ now there are tales to get our teeth into! Not just wee stories but reflections of starvation, famines, wars, child killers and greedy people in power over other people. The use of the mind besting brutality. Ah what a tale can tell, is deeper that is what meta is for.
Ever wanted to write to get buy in from your audience. The Narrative Construction of Reality by Jerome Bruner is where it’s at. This 21 page document is a game changer. Hard to read but once you get your head around it you will have plenty of ‘ah ha’ moments that will inform the way you share narrative.
I am not a daily reader, and not even a weekend reader. Sometimes I read while traveling, sometimes in my garden or while picnic-ing on a Sunday. If there’s something very interesting that I am reading, I tend to finish it faster. Earlier I would feel guilty about starting and not finishing books. Now I treat them like any other content I consume. I’ve skipped through YouTube videos, movie, songs, podcasts without feeling an ounce of guilt, so I started looking at books with the same lens. And however counter-intuitive it may seem, this has given me a great sense of freedom and definitely improved my relationship with my black and white bounded friends.
Yes, all of them, even the books I don’t remember.
The first book I loved was “The Little Engine That Could.” It was my favorite bedtime story. My mother once tried to convince me to choose another story for her to read, but I became Little Blue Engine chugging away, steadfastly keeping the course up the mountain, refusing all other stories until my mother gave in and read it. I finally understood her point of view after I had children and had to read “Green Eggs and Ham” a bajillion trillion times.
Grandma Olive believed in books. She was a teacher and gave us books for birthdays and Christmas. She was also the organist and choir director at the Presbyterian Church, so the books usually had a religious theme. She lived eight hours away, and I think she suspected my parents were lackadaisical in the religious education of her grandchildren. She was right to be suspicious. Before every trip up north, my mother reminded us not to mention that we only went to church when we visited Grandma Olive. But I liked those children’s Bible stories too. On Sunday mornings while my parents slept in, my sisters and I created a circle of books by opening them, standing them on edge, and lining them up cover to cover. We climbed inside, pretending we were “Three Men in a Tub,” and recited the Mother Goose rhyme. Then because it was Sunday, I read Bible stories to my sisters, secretly hoping Grandma Olive could sense our piety.

Has a book changed my life?
Interesting. I can think of many books where I learned valuable lessons and allow me to see the world in a different light. Most of those books are either self help or business books. Two I have off the top of my head are “ Success is a Choice” by Rick Pitino and a biography on Warren Buffet. Any book by Matthew Kelly makes me a better person in faith. One thing they all have in common is not to be afraid of making mistakes and using those mistakes as stepping stones heading in the right direction. I use many of Mr Buffet’s philosophy in my classroom when teaching time management.
