I don’t just want to tell my story. I want to give people the space to tell their own stories. Stories in which people followed their own inner voice. Went in new directions. Broke rules. Grew. Because there are so many unbelievable stories that need to be told!
The story of Sonja Kopplin
Who are you?
Hi, I’m Sonja and Self-Fulfillment Coach.
What do you see as your calling?
I help people live the life they want from the bottom of their hearts.
When did you start to follow your own inner voice?
At the age of 28 I quit my job in the real estate industry head over heels because of burnout, depression and because I hadn’t earned any more money. Seeing no way out, I decided for the first time in my life to follow my heart and live my calling without knowing how it works. Today I am Germany’s No. 1 expert for self-fulfillment and inspire thousands of people every week to walk their hearts. If I can do it, you can do it.
What stumbling blocks did you encounter on your journey?
I also remember the time when I had no idea what made me unique and what made me stand out from other coaches on the market. At that time, I was sitting in a dune on the beach in Denmark, completely desperate and thought that I had to give up my dream because I didn’t earn enough money as a coach at the beginning. I just didn’t understand how to serve people. But then came a valuable impulse from the universe that I should immediately take my cell phone and explain to the people in a video what I feel and how they can use the current energies for their personal development. What can I tell you? This video went viral on Facebook back then and I got a lot of messages from people who thanked me for my work. I would never have expected this response.
Are there parallels between your path and the Stranger’s project?
Like the project, I also see it as my heart mission to connect people. I connect people who look in the same direction with my work and support them on their path of self-realization to show them that they are not alone.
How would you encourage other people to follow their inner voice?
Connect with people who are similar to you and learn from successful people who are where you want to go. These people should be an inspiration for you and show you what is possible.
