I know how depressing it can feel when you are not living up to your full potential.

As a teenager, I was shy and full of self-doubts and spend most of my time fleeing into the world of books and computer games.

As a result, I had to repeat one year in school and got close to having to repeat another year.

Then, I met the right people, studied Psychology and Neuroscience, and slowly figured out how our motivation really works.

I realized that most motivation techniques create fleeting motivation at best because they misunderstand how our motivation really works.

This helped me to discover what I really had to do to achieve lasting motivation… and soon I started to see results.

Over the last 10 years, I’ve graduated as one of the top university students of my year, won prices, got a PhD, and published research in top science journals.

Now I want to help you to master your motivation so that you can discover what YOU are truly capable of.

What makes this course unique is that it is not just about creating fleeting motivation but about building lasting motivation that takes you all the way towards your goals.

What will you learn specifically?

  • What most people get wrong about motivation

  • A simple trick to overcome your mental barriers

  • The one thing a goal needs to be effective

  • How to uncover the deeper emotional reasons behind your goal

  • A little known trick to use the world to keep you motivated

  • The two simple elements of an effective plan

  • A simple formula to turn your actions into automatic habits and reach goals on auto-pilot

  • Strategies to keep yourself energetic

In short, you will learn how to get motivated, stay motivated, take action, and take control of your life and dreams.

Introduction and course outline


In this lecture, I will tell you what awaits you in this course and how to do this course most effectively.

Let's get right into it.

A short hello
What most people get wrong about motivation (avoid mistakes!)

People often have wrong ideas about motivation and this can hurt them - especially in the long-run.

Motivation is not something that requires effort, it is not about pushing through.

Motivation is also not about being incredibly passionate about what you are doing.

This lecture will dispel the most important myths and explain how motivation really works.

A simple trick to overcome mental barriers

Why do we struggle to do the things that we want to do?

It shouldn't be difficult.

But the truth is that we often hit against mental barriers that keep us inactive.

This lecture will show you a simple trick to overcome these barriers.

How to get the most out of this course

How you do this program will determine how much you get from it.

So let's take a minute to talk about the right way to do this program.

Step 1: Sharpen your goal

The one thing every goal needs (Step 1)

Step 5: Turn your actions into automatic habits

Discover the best strategy to reach long-term goals (Step 5)

People often ask: How do you motivate yourself everyday?

However, this is the wrong question.

Most people have brushed their teeth every day for their whole life without feeling very motivated to brush their teeth.

This is what happens when you turn an action into a habit: it switches on your motivation auto-pilot.

In this lecture, I will show you the simple principles behind turning your actions into habits.

Assignment: prepare to automatize your actions
EXTRA: A simple rule that can help you dramatically to stay motivated

Sometimes a little change in mind-set can make a huge difference.

That's exactly what happened to me.

In this lecture, I want to share how a simple change in thinking helped me to get a lot more successful at reaching long-term goals.

Step 6: Stay energetic

How to stay energetic (Step 6)

Often, we feel energetic at the beginning but the longer we keep going, the more exhausted we get.

This lecture will give you strategies to stay energetic on every step of your way.
