Optimism is not the solution to all problems
"Causal analyzes" are unlikely to help those who failed in a poll, and that's obvious to the outside observer. Because both optimism and pessimism do not help. Why?
The reasons: In both over-optimism and pessimism, they probably would not properly analyze the reasons for their failure, so they would not think accurately. Neither the optimist nor the pessimist would be successful in the future. Optimism does not seem to be able to solve all problems, even if it is repeatedly claimed by consultants.
Accurate Thinking: Analyze the reasons aptly
When working on your own resilience and when dealing with setbacks, it is never about learning to think positive (the half full glass of water) but to learn to think "accurate" thinking, so the reasons for setbacks aptly analyze and then draw the appropriate right conclusions.
In the case of an election result, this could be equivalent to
- the politicians have recognized the warning signals of the past elections at country level too late,
- that they have too little shown their success so far,
- or that they have less-convincing leadership skills.
These three reasons for the setback would correspond to an "I" - "not always" - "not all" style, as this would be the reason for the setback but at the same time due to specific and future changeable factors ,
This is also the style that is often found in highly-resilient people and allows them to develop a realistic self-image and both private and professional success.
Strengthened from setbacks
The future will show how resilient our politicians are, and whether they are strengthened by this setback. Both will in all cases depend crucially on their ability to think as a group accurately and thus to draw the right conclusions. This applies to all parties, the CDU, CSU, as well as the Greens, as well as the SPD.
However, if one currently reads in the various forums, in which many supporters of this or that parties "process" their frustration, one must already ask themselves the question, if they will indeed rise like the famous Phoenix from the ashes.
Impotence and stomach problems
Statements such as "voters are simply too stupid to want this or that party in the Bundestag" or "people just do not want freedom and want to be regulated" are the last very common "why-style": the "non- I "-" Always "-" everything "style.
This leads to a real frustration, a feeling of powerlessness, to permanent anger and worst case of acute stomach problems.
And what is your "why style"?
