“… and then Corona came and upset all my plans.” “How should I shape my professional or private future given energy prices?” “What should I change at 45?” – These and similar phrases As an experienced coach, I hear it every day. They all have one thing in common. They come from people who have broken down due to external or internal crises.
Of course, we currently have challenging and challenging times to master. But such problems have existed in every generation. And in each generation there were also people who, despite adverse circumstances and insecurity, created a real success story. Above all, you need these four things: motivation and courage, love for yourself – and the right strategies.
Three strategies help
Do you love cinema? You may know that many of Hollywood’s blockbusters have been built around the traditional hero’s journey structure. In this style of storytelling, developed independently in all cultures of the world, the heroine or hero must overcome some dark internal and / or external obstacles in order to conquer the Holy Grail.
Monsters, snakes, enemies, criminals, diseases, cunning and deceit, injustice – nothing can prevent the hero from achieving his goal. Because the hero has strategies that we can use well even in everyday life and at work. You will now learn three of the most important strategies.
1. Change focus
If there is a nuclear war, is it all over anyway? Is the government responsible for everything? Is it always other people who are lucky? These pessimistic slogans are not only frustrating but also misleading. Of course, you have no influence on what Putin, politicians and other people do. So focus on what you have in your hands: your work and your private life.
2. Create motivation
Success begins in the mind. Hollywood and real-life heroes have one thing in common: the genuine willingness and tenacity to achieve their goals. Don’t be fooled. It doesn’t matter if you’re aiming for the next milestone in your career, if you want to lose 20 pounds or if you want to venture into self-employment – don’t let frustration, negative experiences, warnings from others or your inner bastard hold back. Is it important to you? So it begins. Now!

3. Learn resilience
Resilience is the ability not to let yourself be beaten down by the adversities of life, to make the necessary changes of direction and to develop successful strategies. Studies by the Fraunhofer Institute document that resilient and successful companies are able to realign themselves strategically, especially in times of crisis. This ability is also the point of reference and the aim of everything in private life to dominate crises and at the same time start successful processes.
Do you have enough love for yourself to change your life more actively and successfully achieve your goals? So focus on these goals, take new courage and work on your resilience.
