This is what this book brings you: you support climate protection, quickly receive compact information and checklists from experts (overview and press comments in the book preview), as well as advice that has been tested in practice, which also leads to success step by step thanks to AddOn.
Because in our society stubbornly holds the myth that special talents are innate, already showed in early childhood and only narrowly specialized geniuses could bring it to true mastery in their profession. Recent studies show: The opposite is true; often even generalists are more successful because they have a broader base of experience. Patchwork or mosaic careers are also gradually gaining acceptance in HR departments, which is why more and more people are reflecting on their strengths and are less and less likely to be pigeonholed into narrow templates. But this takes courage and involves risks. It also requires support and role models. This book aims to alleviate fears and highlight opportunities. It creates motivation and uses tips and examples to show how the next step can be taken.
We give you the best possible help on the topics of career, finance, management, personnel work and life assistance. For this purpose, we gather in each book the best experts in their field as authors - detailed biographies in the book - , who give a comprehensive overview of the topic and additionally offer you success planner workbooks in printed form.
Our guidebooks are aimed primarily at beginners. Readers who are looking for more in-depth information can get it for free as an add-on with individual content in German and English as desired. This concept is made possible by a particularly efficient, innovative digital process and Deep Learning, AI systems that use neural networks in translation.
Moreover, we give at least 5 percent of our proceeds from book sales to social and sustainable projects. For example, we endow scholarships or support innovative ideas as well as climate protection initiatives and in some cases also receive government funding for this. With our translations from German into English we improve the quality of neural machine learning and thus contribute to international understanding. You can find out more on the website of our Berufebilder Yourweb Institute.

Content of the book

What this book can do for you: You support certified climate protection projects, quickly receive compact information and checklists from experts (overview in the table of contents) as well as advice that has been tried and tested in practice, which, thanks to the add-on, lead step by step to success. Because in our society the myth persists that special talents are innate, manifested in early childhood and only closely specialized geniuses can achieve true mastery in their profession. More recent studies show: the opposite is the case; even generalists are often more successful because they have a broader base of experience. Gradually, so-called patchwork or mosaic careers are also gaining ground in HR departments, which is why more and more people are reflecting on their strengths and are less and less able to be stuck in tight templates. But that takes courage and involves risks. You also need support and role models. This book aims to reduce fears and show opportunities. It creates motivation and uses tips and examples to show how the next step can succeed.

In addition, our unique publishing concept offers you many best practice tips and examples from successful managers, entrepreneurs and other exciting personalities.

Postpone goals instead of finally getting started: “I don't really want that” // By Tom Diesbrock

“I want to finally get started! And I also have some ideas that are waiting to be worked on and implemented. I always make a serious decision to start with it. But then I stay idle anyway. How can you be so nailed up! I probably don't really want it ... ”

The psychological counseling market would be much smaller ...

The market for psychological counselors would be much smaller if, after reading, every reader actually began to put into practice what he had read as far as he could find it appropriate and correct. The number of these books, which are sold every year, does not decrease. But on the contrary.

Instead of becoming active, many people, especially when it comes to career change, prefer to buy the next guidebook or attend a seminar. What they read and listen to, they find also very right and important, but they do not change anything and stay on their dead horse.

Indefinitely or self-determined?

The strategies of avoidance, which I have presented to you so far, question the possibility and the meaning of change. The mental self-sacrifice does not.

He admits that I decide to go on the road, and I also partly believe it - maybe I'll even take the first step - but then it's over, and I'm not going any further. As if someone else would decide about my doing.

Is the inner pig dog so strong?

We may call this other our "Inner Pig Dog". And then we often feel ashamed because we seem so weak and he is so strong. As if this was just a question of willpower and mental strength.

If we are in the impasse of the mental self-sacrifice, it often feels as if someone had pulled out the plug. The motivation and the drive go to zero. It seems as if we no longer have any energy at our disposal.

Onschieberitis instead of change

For activities with which we then gladly distract (suddenly suddenly windows must be cleaned, cars washed or desks cleared!), But there is always enough energy available.

If we follow the temptation, the voice of the bad conscience quickly announces itself, and exhorts us that we had made much more important. And so it goes in our head always back and forth, but not forward.

No step forward, but consumes a lot of energy

As if a part of me were stepping on the accelerator to accelerate me to top speed, and another my inner brake pedal because he did not want that. The consequence: I do not come from the spot, consume a lot of energy, I think stupidly, and somehow the engine is broken.

The diagnosis: I have an inner conflict that leads to a mental block. This is a completely normal psychic mechanism that follows the principle: "If I am not XNUMX% sure of my cause, I would rather prevent it and stick to the tried and true than the new will prove to be wrong and harmful in the end."

Shoemaker, stay with the groin

Or to put it more popularly: “Shoemaker, stick to your work (if you don't have a great business plan).” The consequence is discontent and at some point only despair.

What is crucial is how psychologically wisely we deal with our inner blockade and either solve it constructively or only solidify it ever further. In order to achieve the latter, there are two very effective tools, namely: pressure and self-criticism.

"I'm so stupid and lazy"

Even more effective: even more pressure and even more self-criticism. Probably this method is not unknown to you, because most of us use it often. If I do not work as I would-I think, I'd criticize it, and for example, impute stupidity or laziness.

Self-accusations like "I should be much further - others can do it too" support my self-criticism. Then I can still put on the inner thumbscrews and really put pressure on myself: “Finally pull yourself together!” or “You didn't deserve anything else!” but don't really motivate either.

Anything but hot air?
