The 3 Most Important Lessons I Learned From Surviving Stage 4 Cancer
Barbara Vercruysse
October 04, 2021
There was a growing urge to bring more love and compassion into this world after having almost lost my life.

Monday, April 7, 2003 at 9 a.m. I’m in the office of my construction business. Jean-Baptiste is with me ― he is 10 weeks old, and I am still breastfeeding him. My two girls ― Heloïse, who is almost 4, and Eugenie, who is 2.5 ― are in kindergarten. I get a phone call from the surgeon who cut away a little black spot on my knee the week before. At first I don’t remember who he is. I only saw him for 15 minutes.

5 Signs of Personal Growth
LinkedIn
October 24, 2019
Since the recovery of my skin cancer, I decided to take this second chance that life gave me with both hands. I was determined to live my life at its fullest and share my gifts with the world. I had (and still have) many coaches and learned from numerous mentors. The expansion and growth within myself is something that I treasure enormously.

I realize at a very deep level that the only premise to change your life, to live freely and create the life you have always dreamed of, is to change your own beliefs, to change your mindset and to raise your awareness.

These are the signs which are the most prominent for me when a person starts to grow

3 Simple Steps to Experience Bliss
McGill Media
July 18, 2018
Some people have it, most people don’t.
And let me tell you straight away, it doesn’t come from the big house and the big car. There is no happiness or greatness to be found in material things of themselves.

Some people radiate happiness and fulfillment no matter what their outside circumstances look like, they experience a well-being and a peace of mind in a natural way. How do they do that?

4 life-saving tips on how to deal with huge setbacks and build your resilience for difficult times.
LinkedIn
August 23, 2017
On April 7th, 2003 I was told that I had a stage-4 skin cancer and would probably not survive the end of that year. My youngest son, Jean-Baptiste, was 8 weeks old at that moment, my daughters Heloïse and Eugenie were 3 and 2 years old. I had been running my construction business for 5 years.

Besides disbelief, I didn’t feel sick at that time, the cancer was discovered through a little black (bleeding) spot on my knee, the sky fell down and rational thinking was far away those first days.

And we all get to hear this kind of news sooner or later in our lives, maybe you woke up one day and your spouse told you she was going to leave you or maybe you had to save your company from bankruptcy.

As entrepreneurs we are by definition more resilient than most other people, we get to deal with little and big fires every day, we are used to it and the vision we hold for our company is always stronger than the obstacles we meet on our way. But sometimes we are confronted with news that shakes our entire existence.

As an expert in dealing with setbacks and difficult circumstances throughout my life, I found that these 4 steps were hugely important in finding the courage to go on and re-invent myself during the moments that my world seemed like falling apart.

Sharing tools and insights on how to stay calm, centred and compassionate in a hectic world, how powerful kindness is a win-win situation for all those involved.
Often times, being kind is viewed as a weakness. Whether it is being kind to ourselves, or being kind to those around us. There is a misconception that we have push ourselves harder so that we can get more out of life. There is a misconception that we have to point out what others are doing incorrectly instead of saying well done. But what if it is actually the exact opposite? What if kindness is a strength, not a weakness? In this talk you will hear how kindness is a strength and negativity is the real weakness.

Stories of Success Podcast - Surviving Cancer
Stories of Success
March 30, 2020
This episode of my podcast was another “cold interview". I enjoy those conversations, where you meet someone for the first time and record the conversation. This one is with Barbara Vercruysse. Apologies for some audio glimpses which are due to connectivity issues.

Barbara is a coach, spiritual mentor, thought leader and public speaker. After facing several challenges in life and survivin stage 4 skin cancer at the age of 32, she decided to live her second life at the fullest. In this episode she shares her story of success. She also wrote a book, founded an online school, gives talks and inspires people to deeply transform their lives.

We are looking at the first life she had prior to cancer and her second life after cancer. She sees her cancer, which she had at 32, as a blessing. A concept some might not understand, but for her it was a eureka moment which made her change her life completely. For her it is all about leaving a legacy, an imprint on someone else’s heart.

It was as if she was living someone else’s life until she started being herself, finding herself due to her experience with cancer. She overcame this and openly speaks about the debts she had; she had to close her company and was ready to give it all up. But she persevered and ended up fighting even harder to get to where she is now! She turned that fear into a confidence in life.

She learned how to say yes, worked hard and took the opportunities and made it a success. Her online school is called ‘Barbara’s School of Wisdom’. She was published in the Huffington Post and wrote the book: '7 Most Powerful Techniques to Release Stress’ https://www.amazon.co.uk/most-powerfu....
We discuss the power we have inside us to make decisions and how we react in any situation. Whilst we touch on spiritual experience, and how we would define this for ourselves, there is also the Peaceprize (peaceprize.org) which she was selected for. It is a Thought Leaders School founded by Bryant McGill.

A complex episode with loads of input and take aways in order to encourage you to live the life you want to live!

Don't Let the Fear of Failure Hold You Back
Start The Life Of Your Dreams
April 05, 2021
Failure is not the opposite of success, it’s part of success.

Once you understand that, you will develop a different attitude towards failure. You will see each difficulty as an opportunity to grow stronger.

What is failure anyway?
Failure is having a different outcome than you wanted.
It’s a label you put on an experience.

Most people fear failure because mostly they fear the judgements of other people. Let me say this, as long as other people’s judgements control the direction of your life, you are in a powerless position.

Never let the fear of what others might say, hold you back.

Your biggest strength in life will always come in getting back up after a challenge and there is no challenge that you cannot overcome. You have everything within you to succeed in life.

Remember, life is a series of experiences to let your soul grow through those experiences.

So stop focusing on the negativity, stop talking in a negative way to yourself.

You owe it to yourself to make the best of every single day.

Kindness is not weakness
Start The Life Of Your Dreams
September 27, 2020
What to do when people are rude to you, how to deal with unkind people. Try to see beyond their angry words. Aggression and rudeness are an expression of their hurt. Their words are a reflection of their inner state and has nothing to do with you.

So never lower yourself to the rude behaviour of others, stay calm and powerful in your kindness and calmness.

Many masters, Jesus, Buddha, ... taught us the power of kindness and calmness. Never forget that you are a divine being in form and that the world needs your light.

In living a life of excellence and integrity, kindness and compassion have a prominent place.

Even in situations where we have to deal with a rude and unkind person, kindness and compassion are the best response.

Remember that the behaviour of someone towards you, has nothing to do with you; it is an expression of his/her inner state of mind.

Listen in this video how we can choose for a powerful kindness always.

Let me end with this quote:
“Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.”
Lao-Tzu

Are You Letting Negativity Control Your Life?
Start The Life Of Your Dreams
August 16, 2020

Do you allow negativity to run your life?

Raising your awareness on what you allow in your life is crucial in finding peace of mind.

Do you allow negative thoughts run your mind and you are not even conscious that you are digging your own grave with it?
Do you allow negative people around you because you think you are not a good person if you take distance from those people?
Do you allow drama and gossip in your life adding to your stress and overwhelm?

You deserve better…

You deserve a healthy life.
You deserve a fulfilled life.
You deserve a joyful life.

But YOU are the guardian of your space, of your energy and what you allow in your life.

As a stage 4 cancer survivor I realise the preciousness of each breath, the sacredness of each human encounter and most of all of the power within us to live a life full of joy, warmth and fulfilment.

So today, I invite to be aware of who and what you allow in your life; to make sure you do not allow anything or anyone to dim your light.
