9 Ways the Eskimo Elders Can Make You A Better Leader



I'm Blanca.
You are meant to have an optimal life, one that's happy, successful, abundant and of great contribution. My mission is to help you achieve that.

Last week I had the pleasure to meet my uncle, Angaanganq, an elder shaman of the Eskimos. He gave a keynote speech at the Avans Ondernemerscentrum in Breda. He brought a message of urgency for change and leadership. His presentation was powerful and tremendously inspiring.

As his message is actually directed to you, I decided to share his top 7 ideas. I’ve tried to be respectful of his message by using this words literally. I found this very powerful as his short sentences touch my heart.

You are the one.

Step up as leaders today. Don’t to wait until someone else (government, religion or politics) takes action. Change will not come from them. You need to make your life of Spiritual Significance.

Accept the reality of life

To be able to generate changes, we need to accept the reality of life. The process he offers to do so is:

  • To make your mind strong, accept people's thoughts
  • To make your spirit strong, accept people's feelings
  • To make your body strong, dance the dance of life

Where to start

Start with yourself. Talk to the sky. Connect with something greater than yourself. Expand yourself. Fly like an eagle. Your ideas are worth pursuing.

The greatest distance is between your heart and your mind

We are one

Accept each other. We belong in the same place. Melt the ice in your heart. Pain is part of the process. Learn to love the ice in the heart of men. Learn to melt your own ice in your heart.

How to awake

Touch your heart. She – God - is ok. Become naked. Connect. Learn to embrace the other.


There is no useless people. Trust yourself. Love yourself. Connect. Act.

How to change the system

You are the system. Change yourself. Listen to your elders. Listen to your grandmother. In the old world grandmas decided. They told men what to do.


Let go of the need of passing exams. Instead, teach students to use their knowledge wisely from the beginning. Else they will repeat what you know.


Do you want to do something magnificent with your one and precious life?

Now, I would love to hear from you.

  1. Thanks Blanca for sharing this… I found it very touching!… In my experience, something that has really pay off both in my life and my career is to work on myself, to become the change as the only way to ‘provoke’ change… Robin Sharma says it nicely: “The swiftest way to triple your success is to double your investment in personal development”… This lead me to know in each cell of my being that we are all here for a reason big or small… When we find the courage to pursue that special reason, we are already contributing to a better world 🙂
    Keep posting!

    1. Yes, you bet! His “you are the system” was so powerful. As long as we keep blaming, nothing will actually change. When we decide to be the change, everything will indeed change. Thank you so much, Lourdes!
