Here I am, in the Scottish Highlands…menudo viaje hicimos Esmeralda y yo, increíble. Recuerdo perfectamente este momento, la foto junto a las montañas «Three Sisters» del valle Glen Coe en los highlands escoceses. Every time I look at this picture I feel awesome, great, highly motivated, full of energy and life. Siempre que miro esta foto me siento increíble. Me sentía vivo, presente, lleno de ganas de hacer cosas y vivir aventuras.

Es curioso cómo funciona la motivación, ¿verdad? ¿Te has sentido alguna vez así?

That’s the topic of today’s episode in Your Way. Mónica Stocker and I speak about what motivates us, how to achieve things, know what you want and much more. Hoy, Mónica y yo hablamos de motivación, de conocerse a uno mismo y mucho más.
