Especially in positive phases, in the intoxication of success, the feeling of one's own unlimited possibilities arises. But just then one's own physical, psychological and intellectual limits should be present. Over-the-top self-esteem often bursts suddenly and hard in reality. Burn-OUT03

Be realistic with yourself

The most important thing is to know yourself and to judge correctly. Think about yourself. This assumes knowing yourself. To answer elementary questions: Who am I, what can I do, what do I want, how can I achieve this? Which strengths, weaknesses, professional skills, social skills, character traits, drivers do I have?

Who builds, should be able to organize. Anyone who sells should be positive for people. Who in the Team works, should be a team player. Anyone who sees himself as persistent, should be able to listen to a CD. Those who misjudge themselves will have problems.

The mantra of “anything goes”

The principle applies: you are no other! Not only children, but also many adults want to be like the “on the cover of the magazines”. Advertising, casting shows and grandparents' money suggest “anything goes”! For this we throw one or the other overboard and hide the circumstances of our own lives. Appearance blinds being. But dream worlds don't make us a George Clooney or a Steve Jobs.

Accept yourself the way you are. Working on yourself, developing yourself, we should all do that. Only change is constant, life does not know “finished”, it is only stopped by death. Struggling with yourself, bending, that doesn't get us anywhere. The key to solutions that we cannot offer ourselves often lies with others who help and complement us with their skills.

Maintain ground adhesion

Set goals, happy also great, but remain realistic in what you can achieve when. Your goals should match you and your personality profile.

Only then will you have a connection between drive and implementation and not fall into a hole, since between claim and reality has opened.

Change is enrichment

Many Burn-Outers feel what is required of them as a burden that crushes them. You see yourself as a victim. They are not clear with the change in the workplace. Change yes, but not with me.

Flexibility to do other things, new requirements, to learn, that does not fit into the lives of those I call the people who have set up their lives, and who wish that things always go on. What does not happen.

To accept setbacks

This is precisely the situation in which job-seekers in the big companies have their problem. If they are overwhelmed, their limits - mostly intellectual - have left behind, then they have not failed but burn-out.

But don't let it get that far. Don't just look into the wrinkles every day Spiegel. Remember these food for thought. Then stay on track - professionally and privately. Even if burnout is not a disease:

7 tips against overconfidence

Accept change

People who are afraid of changes ultimately have difficulty making decisions. Do not develop false fears.

Accept changes, yes, be curious, they enrich our lives. Do what you do with enthusiasm that gives you the feeling of satisfaction and happiness. Be a convict.

Live appropriately

Live healthy. Proper nutrition, sport without exaggerated performance, enough sleep at a time, there are signs of righteousness, but we should stick to it in order not to provoke diseases.

Deployment and stress, tension and tension can have a positive effect, release adrenaline. Only those who span the arch have a problem. The old artisan saying “after loose comes loose” applies not only to screws, but also to our bodies.
