The philosophy of CANEI
CANEI means Constant And Never Ending Improvement, a philosophy or a way of living for continuous openness, learning, improvement and growth. It is evolutionary: through the openness and willingness to move ahead an upward spiral is created, which will empower our life and personal development.
The origin of CANEI is derived from the Japanese word Kaizen , which is popular especially in business. But the philosophy can be applied to all aspects of life, especially on a personal level.
This includes all wishes, desires and goals we have in all areas of our life, may it be on a personal level or in our career. The principles of CANEI can be applied to grow our mind, body, health, energy, finances and belongings, social life and our spirit.
On this personal level CANEI means nothing else as Personal Development which is the freeing of ourselves and unfolding of our human potential. This needs personal growth and then growth is the way we become the creator of our life. The “ultimate goal” of CANEI is of course the ultimate personal fulfilment: self-realization.

Myrko Thum – A brief introduction of the author
I grew up in the split Germany, known as GDR, near Berlin. As the unification of Germany has arisen, I was about to start university education in Computer Science in Berlin. Computer Science was just about to take off with the growing popularity of the internet and I had and have the fascination for creation and the creative power we have with computers, as for instance expressed in computer games. Shortly after starting studying, I experienced something like a minor stroke, where I could not see and talk properly, which was pretty disturbing with 19 years of age. What followed was the development of a clinical depression , since I was surrounded by complete inability to help me by doctors, parents of friends. I was really believing I was going to die to a serious illness and nobody was making any effort. This state of depression went on in lessening degree for nearly eight years, and it was the first mayor learning in my life-time: You are responsible , nobody else.
I quit studying, which was not that fulfilling, especially with the disadvantage of my lessening, but ongoing depression, followed my heart and started the internet and games company ingame GmbH in Hamburg, Germany together with people I got in contact with over the internet through this passion for games.
Running this company was my second mayor-learning through expand by demand. Especially demand on myself, and I started not only learning and applying management and vision, but also the the whole process of personal development through willingness to grow. Changing limiting beliefs , raising energy -levels and creating by goals and vision are personal developed habits. On the inter-personal level, working and being with other people, there were challenges in leadership, inspiration and of course, just getting things done together
After a deeper realization of what the reasons for success are and how something like a company can naturally grow there came the question of “Where do I grow now?” There is the obvious answer: “Just do the things you do better!” And this is a good answer, it means to contribute and give value to others. And I wanted and want this answer to apply. But somehow it wasn’t satisfying enough.
I always had the feeling, that beyond the earning for success and affluence, there is another dimension, a spiritual dimension. And so I first looked into spiritual pathways to success and then into spirituality itself .
The whole approach of Personal Development is the approach to live inside-out, to look inside and to express that what is there for the benefit of the world. I experienced a rising of joy, of juice in my life, which was the result of me freeing myself from limits in my mind. I experienced a strong glimpse of an awakening, the realization of my essence, of what we all have inside and are.
As always the journey continues, for me as well as for you. Let’s make the best out of it …
