The method presented in this book helps readers to live a more self-determined life. It encourages them to allow themselves to do what really inspires them. In today’s world – one in which many people feel bound to live by external standards – it’s a topic that’s rapidly gaining traction. Three steps clear the path to increased self-determination: reconciliation with one‘s inner critic, trust in one’s own intuition and the strengthening of self-esteem. The various chapters of the book explain the relationships between these aspects, while practical exercises facilitate a change in perspective and the exploration of new scope for action. It enables each individual reader to develop their potential as required.
