What do we need to do to reach our goals?
To explore is to dare. To dare is to do the unexpected and to step outside the Comfort Zone. Ever since humans started to walk up straight we have tried new ways and we have done everything we can to become wiser. It is through our mistakes that we have developed and learned. It is through our failures that we have become wiser. You can never reach a goal or a summit without taking some kind of risk. This is what we call Evolution. Humans have always been risk takers.
What separates us from the animals is that we have dreams and that we make plans to reach our goals.
Why are we so scared of failing? How can we optimize our potentials and who is setting the limits for what is possible?
These are some of the questions and subjects that we dive into during Johans 120 minutes lectures.

How do we find the balance in life?

Do we really need motivation?
Many people would answer;
“No, we know exactly What to do and When to do it!
We even know Why we should do it!”

If the answers are so obvious; why is it so hard to change and become happy. Why can’t we find the balance in life?
Is there something missing? We have forgot the “How”! How do we motivate ourselves, How do we quit smoking, loose weight etc? We already know the When & Why. Most people have problem with the How.
With all that knowledge we have, all those books and films that tells us that everything is possible, wouldn’t this be the easiest question in the universe?

Our True Potentials

What is a person capable of?
What are the potentials and how can we really use our full capacity?
A chapter in Johan Ernst Nilsons lecture “The Answer is Yes” is based on finding your true potentials:
“The most important is how we see ourselves. After years of traveling around in schools, companies and in personal coaching I always get surprised and sad when I realize how low people think of themselves in therms of potentials.
I use a technique in my lectures called NOX (No Excuses) which is based on the fact that we all have excuses when it comes to stop eating suger, quit smoking or something else that is a hard commitment. If we really want to get somewhere with all these commitments, then its all about making up our mind!
Its only you, and you alone, that can make that change.
How can we become Great if we settle for Good?
How can we become Happy when OK is what we aim for?
How can we reach our dreams when we aim for small goals?”
