“…and then Corona came to upset all my plans.” “How should I shape my professional or private future given energy prices?” “What should I change at 45?” – These and other similar sentences As an experienced coach, I hear this every day. They all have one thing in common. They come from people who have become discouraged as a result of external or internal crises.
Of course, we currently have demanding and difficult times to master. But such problems have existed in every generation. And in every generation there were also people who, despite adverse circumstances and despite self-doubt, created a real success story. You need these four things above all else: motivation and courage, self-esteem – and the right strategies.
Three strategies help
Do you like cinema? You may know that many of Hollywood’s blockbuster movies have been built around the traditional hero’s journey structure. In this style of storytelling, independently developed in all cultures around the world, the heroine or hero must overcome dark internal and/or external obstacles in order to conquer the Holy Grail.
Monsters, snakes, enemies, criminals, diseases, cunning and deception, injustice – nothing can prevent the hero from achieving his goal. Because the hero has strategies that we can use both in everyday life and at work. Now you will get to know three of the most important strategies.
1. Change Focus
If there is a nuclear war, is it all over anyway? The government is responsible for everything? Is it always the others who are lucky? These pessimistic slogans are not only frustrating but also misdirected. Of course, you have no influence on what Putin, politicians and others do. So focus on what you have in your hands: your work and your private life.
2. Create motivation
Success starts in the head. Hollywood and real-life heroes have one thing in common: the genuine drive and tenacity to achieve their goals. Don’t be fooled. It doesn’t matter if you’re aiming for the next step in your career, want to lose 20 pounds or want to venture into self-employment – don’t let frustration, negative experiences, warnings from others or your inner bastard hold you back. come back. Is it important to you? Then start. Now!
3. Learn resilience
Resilience is the ability to not let life’s adversities bring you down, to make necessary course changes and to develop effective strategies. Studies from the Fraunhofer Institute show that resilient and successful companies are able to strategically realign themselves, especially in times of crisis. This ability is also the alpha and omega of privacy to control crises and at the same time initiate successful processes.
Do you have enough self-esteem to change your life more actively and successfully achieve your goals? Then focus on those goals, take courage, and work on your resilience.
