More about Hamid in his own words:
For me InnerChange is not a business, it is rather a true expression of my being, of my heart and soul. Once before I thought I had put my heart and soul into another work; a high-tech start-up developing and offering Internet based services back when hardly anyone had heard of “Cloud-Services”. As one of the main founders, I was very attached to that business which I eventually had to let go. As thrilling as the journey was, that whole failed experience was indeed the beginning of a very valuable lesson that I needed to receive. My external gaze towards worldly success, and seeking happiness outside, was shattered. This helped to open a new window to the path of finding my true self; literally the beginning of my own inner change.
To live a fulfilling life means to find and to be one’s true self. It is not about having things such as status, fame, power, control, wealth, health, and so on. It is not about getting somewhere out there or up there. It is rather about discovering that we are complete and fine at our core. To uncover our innate clarity, compassion, and courage to simply be ourselves. Yet, we hardly feel that way. Why? Because we search outside for the answers; whereas the key is to work on the inner barriers that block us from experiencing ourselves as whole and fine. That is the journey of life worth taking. Other journeys might promise success, happiness and power but such achievements are temporary even if they materialise. They are not fulfilling in the long run, and do not bring about true happiness and inner peace. (You can read more about this in Values and Ways and in Dear Rumi…Why am I here? Tell me about work and life purpose.)
