Life always goes on

Like me when my two small children came towards me on my return from work at home in 2006: “Mama, Mama, Papa is lying there.” Dead. Heart attack. my complete Welt collapsed.

At 28 she received her doctorate in physics, at 33 twice Mother, widow at 39. I felt alone, sad and abandoned. Helpless and full Anxiety. What's next? Can it go on at all? Giving up wasn't an option. After all, I had two little sons. They were the reason to get up in the morning, to tackle new things every day - and to look ahead. And life went on.

At that time I have three crucial Ask helped to get me on my way – again and again:

  1. "What would you do if you weren't scared?". Imagine you have a volume control for fear and you turn it to zero. And you know nothing can go wrong. So what would you do, what do you think of?
  2. The second question immediately follows: "What would you do if you knew exactly: you are successful? ” So, no matter what you do, no matter what you start now, whether you quit your job to open a café, or whether you say: this life here in XY is not for me, I go to Z. No matter. If you know what you are doing will be successful: what would you do?
  3. And the third question, completely away from work and the patterns in which we always think, is: "What are you having fun with?" What could you do all day, from morning to night?

Life means constant change

Life hasn't just shown me that in a dramatic way. Experience this principle People around the world over and over again. change is an absolutely natural and, if sometimes painful, process that often makes sense in hindsight.

If life challenges you with unforeseen events and strokes of fate and if you are affected yourself, you only really realize later what is behind it: getting back on track and continuing on your own path without fear. This is the big one Art.

Career is a very individual concept

Discounts for your success (advertising)!

When I was the managing director of a DAX company at the age of 43 and held a position on the supervisory board, I had actually made it. My career had seemingly reached its peak and I had obviously achieved a lot in life. But I was satisfied and happy? No.

It was time to no longer block myself from this inner change and to completely realign my values. That's how it happened that at the age of 49 I dared to take the leap into self-employment. As a certified Business-Training, Mediator and moderator, I have been giving people responsibility for themselves ever since Companys to culture change. One focus is on the topic of "Women in the Guide" with the Objective, "To increase the quota without quota".

Sense and passion

Change is more important than ever! Because leadership as we know it has had its day. Disciplinary instructions via hierarchy and power as well as the processing of orders have been replaced by guidance via Sinn and passion.

As a result, there are also many Executives Discontinued models – at least when they don't make it or don't want to, there are also new ones ways to go.

Charismatic leaders

Managers must be able to communicate openly, appreciatively and inspiringly and their Employees to pick them up exactly where they are at that moment. Co-thinkers and currently co-designers are in demand and are needed more than ever in our everyday work.

In this way, lone fighters become teams that appreciate transparent cooperation and grow together. Because without continuous development - personally as well as professionally - nobody will get by in the future.

Success is when perception meets willingness

As a physicist, I love formulas that always reproducibly produce the same result. I am firmly convinced that Success then happens, so to speak, happens - you can't defend yourself - if perception on a clear Vision and on a good one Preparation meets. The formula E = WxV² has always proven to be particularly helpful for me personally.

What does that mean? If we want to achieve a goal, then we have to ask the right questions. And so it is the most important thing to know about it first clear to become: How do we want to be? Who do we want to be? And what do we want to be? So to develop our vision of a fulfilling life. In addition, of course, good preparation is also part of it, ie we have to adapt accordingly Competencies work out.

Change course without fear: The question of happiness

I wish that for every person who is at a very natural fork in life or has even been catapulted to a dangerous crossroads. Even in difficult situations we have to Control about our lives, after all we only have this one. Let's make it active!

We should ask ourselves this question from time to time Honestly respond. We often realize that we have strayed from our path. Then we have to engage in change and adjust our inner compass to happiness again. Because we can only do a really good job if we are happy and no longer afraid – no matter which one, no matter where and no matter with whom.
