“Why do I exist? What makes my life worth living? If passion is the ultimate expression of your talent, what is mine? What is my purpose?
Futurize Yourself shares Tom’s personal life story on his quest for purpose. By doing so helping you to sparkle and transform.
Get a grip on your why by being the master of your fate and the captain of your soul.”

“Viktor Frankl’s Man’s Search For Meaning (1946) belongs to the ten most influential books ever in the United States. As a prisoner in an Auschwitz concentration camp, Frankl observed himself and others and discovered that prisoners who lost faith in the future were doomed. Those who had a why to live for could bear almost any terrible how.
I see Tom Meyer as a next Viktor Frankl. He is an amazing story-teller and a brilliant student in the school of life. In the deepest and darkest moment of his life, troubled by the trauma of emotional abandonment in his childhood, three questions rescued him. Three questions were the key to unlock a treasure that was buried within him: his purpose in life. His purpose became his passion and now, as an osteopath, keynote speaker and story-teller, he shares his passion to inspire others to futurize themselves and design their life on purpose. When you build your vision based on your purpose, you can become who you were born to be. This is the concept of futurizing yourself. By changing the perspective of your past, you can influence the present and the future. Absolutely marvellous.“

Tom Meyers (1970) was born in Antwerp, Belgium. After his training to become a chef, he spent time travelling around the world and worked as a waiter and sommelier in hotels and on Cunard’s’ flagship the ‘Queen Elisabeth II’. At 29 he started his first business, a gourmet deli which failed and lead him into an existential crisis. Wanting to give up on life, three questions saved him, gave him a sense of purpose and helped him to futurize himself and become the person who he was born to be.
Today he’s an osteopath with a private practice in Brussels (Belgium), a forward thinker, keynote speaker, author and the founder of the ‘Reaset Approach,’ a novel body-mind and educational approach to manifest your best future ‘stress resilient' self today.
“I finished reading your book… And yes, I couldn't put it down once I started reading it...You are a wonderful storyteller, connecting different dots of life to transform ‘Impossible" to "I'm possible’...
Such an inspiring story!
I really hope that you will consider to design and deliver workshops based on this book. Or retreats - whatever sounds better to you. I'm saying this because I could see you already doing it while I was reading the last part of the book.”
Executive Coach (ICF)
Tom Meyers has written a must-read book for anyone who wants to design his life on purpose. He takes the readers on an inspirational personal journey from his world full of struggle and uncertainty to a life with plenty of happy moments, possibilities and fulfilment. I really enjoyed reading this honest book full of important insights and lessons on how to futurize your life. I believe that his 3 step-process is a simple but very effective way to transform many lives. It was an honour to read Tom's work - and learn from one of the most authentic persons I’ve ever met.
