"Successful people maintain a positive focus in life no matter what is going on around them. They stay focused on their past successes rather than their past failures, and on the next action steps they need to take to get them closer to the fulfillment of their goals rather than all the other distractions that life presents to them."

Jack Canfield

"By taking the time to stop and appreciate who you are and what you've achieved - and perhaps learned through a few mistakes, stumbles and losses - you actually can enhance everything about you. Self-acknowledgment and appreciation are what give you the insights and awareness to move forward toward higher goals and accomplishments."

Jack Canfield

"Remember, you and you alone are responsible for maintaining your energy. Give up blaming, complaining and excuse making, and keep taking action in the direction of your goals - however mundane or lofty they may be."

Jack Canfield

You are worth something! Don't let anybody tell you you are a good-for-nothing! Your potential is way beyond what you might possibly imagine! God gave you passions and emotions for a reason. Find out what you are passionate about - and go for it! Don't be scared to accept challenges on the way - they only help you grow. Whatever your life experiences may have been - you are loved so much by God He sent His only Son to die for YOU! Let that love fill your heart, grow in you and bear rich fruit. Pass it on to others. God told Adam it was not good for him to be alone. Neither is it for us. Seek the company of others. Life is not about following somebody else's plans, but the one God has set out for you by the way He designed you! Learning and growing does not simply mean passing on traditions and learning things others experienced by heart (that is how our school system works), but helping light the fire in us that brought forth all cultural and technical development. You are never too old to study and grow, neither do you lack the talent for it. All it takes is for you to fell the love - His love - and accept this adventure called life!

“The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.”

― William Arthur Ward

"Selbstwirksamkeit bezeichnet die Überzeugung einer Person, die zur Erreichung zukünftiger Ziele benötigten Verhaltensweisen ausführen zu können. Diese Zuversicht im Hinblick auf die Bewältigung kommender Herausforderungen erleichtert es, neue Situationen als Chancen zu persönlichem Wachstum aufzufassen und bei Problemen nicht gleich aufzugeben, sondern stattdessen das Ziel mit verstärktem Einsatz und Ausdauer zu verfolgen.

Achtsamkeit bezeichnet eine offene und unvoreingenommene Haltung gegenüber neuen Erfahrungen. Diese Offenheit ermöglicht es, bekannte Umstände neu wahrzunehmen, was im Umgang mit Herausforderungen bei der Arbeit und den dadurch hervorgerufenen emotionalen Reaktionen sehr hilfreich sein kann. Achtsamkeit verhilft dazu, neue Situationen als weniger bedrohlich zu erleben und in konstruktiver Weise mit den eigenen emotionalen Reaktionen umzugehen.

Optimismus beschreibt die Erwartung positiver Ergebnisse, auch wenn die Umstände ungünstig sind. Ähnlich wie die Selbstwirksamkeit trägt auch diese Erwartungshaltung dazu bei, dass neue Situationen eher als Herausforderung und weniger als Bedrohung angesehen werden, dass Anstrengung auch über einen längeren Zeitraum aufrechterhalten wird und dass nach Lösungswegen gesucht wird, auch wenn diese nicht sofort ersichtlich sind."

"I generally find that comparison is the fast track to unhappiness. No one ever compares themselves to someone else and comes out even. Nine times out of ten, we compare ourselves to people who are somehow better than us and end up feeling more inadequate."

Jack Canfield

― Napoleon Hill, Think and Grow Rich: The Landmark Bestseller Now Revised and Updated for the 21st Century

“Before success comes in any man’s life, he is sure to meet with much temporary defeat, and, perhaps, some failure. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and most logical thing to do is to quit. That is exactly what the majority of men do. More than five hundred of the most successful men this country has ever known told the author their greatest success came just one step beyond the point at which defeat had overtaken them.”

“Do not wait: the time will never be 'just right'. Start where you stand, and work whatever tools you may have at your command and better tools will be found as you go along.”

“A goal is a dream with a deadline”
― Napoleon Hill

“Cherish your vision and your dreams as they are the children of your soul, the blueprints of your ultimate achievements.”

Es gibt bei vielen die Tendenz, Probleme nur als Herausforderungen sehen zu wollen und dies auch im Sinne der Resilienz anderen zu vermitteln. Dies kann sehr schädliche und gefährliche Konsequenzen haben.

Nicht jedes Problem ist nämlich eine "Herausforderung", die lösbar ist.

Manche Probleme sind nicht lösbar und nicht einmal erklärbar. Es ist auch kein Sinn darin zu sehen. Sie sind möglicherweise einfach "nur" schlimme Zeiten, die es anzunehmen und durchzustehen gilt.

Wer nur mit dem Modell der "Herausforderung" arbeitet, wird in solchen Situationen scheitern: der Ratsuchende bekommt zu seinem/ihrem bestehenden Problem obendrein möglicherweise noch Schuldkomplexe und/oder Empfindungen des Versagens und Scheiterns, was das Problem an sich noch weitaus schlimmer machen kann, als es bereits ist.

Keine einfachen Rezepte also!

“The strongest oak of the forest is not the one that is protected from the storm and hidden from the sun. It’s the one that stands in the open where it is compelled to struggle for its existence against the winds and rains and the scorching sun.”
