  1. Lots of great information in your presentation! My Takeaway: Inspiration!

    • mathias sager says:

      Thanks for the kind feedback. Yes, the shift from motivation to inspiration is a quantum leap for me too! Take care

  2. Yup, I have experienced that. Trouble is, I have to do it over and over and over.

      Thanks for your comment! I understand as I make/made the same experience and heard it from others too! To become more continuously process-oriented (vs. achievement-oriented) I find it helpful to be inspired by a long-term/life-long purpose and intention rather than by short-term motivational goals; it helps to become able to consistently self-actualize. Self-acceptance and positive change is definitively not a one-time action but rather a way of being. All the best!

  3. thx for sharing, very useful 🙂
