It is extremely difficult to translate the term “reaching-out” that Reivich and Shatté mentioned in their book “The resilience factor” into German. In any case, the word goal orientation that we use does not fully do justice to him. And what is that anyway?

From the author:



Goals lead to success

Highly resident people are characterized in particular by the fact that they have clear objectives, which they pursue with a great deal of discipline, remember the resilience factor impulse control.

While they are pursuing these goals, they are not discouraged by setbacks, but they also know - think again of the resilience factor causal analysis - when it happens Sense makes it possible to abandon an envisaged goal.

Do and leave what you want?

However, if they have reached a goal or have decided to give up a goal, they will set new goals after a short time and pursue them with a great deal of discipline.

Last but not least, the term describes the ability to do so relatively independently of other people's feedback, so to believe in what you want to do.

How resilient is Stephe Jobs?

Perhaps a person like Steve Jobs, one of the founders of Apple, is a good example here. If, like me, you happen to have read Walter Isaacson's biography of Steve Jobs, you might remember the phase in Steve Jobs' life when he was kicked out of his own company, Apple.

He had already earned more than enough money by that time to live "happily" for the rest of probably a hundred or a thousand lives. But he didn't stop working at that point, he bought a small business called Pixar, quickly developed it, and after a few years sold it to Walt Disney for many billion dollars.

Reaching out vs. hamster wheel

When he had done this, he was called back to his previous untapped Apple company and developed it into the most valuable company in the world within a few years with innovative products like the iPod and the iPhone. This is nothing but a Reaching-Out.

It is important to emphasize that highly resilient people do not mean those who are permanently in a hamster wheel, never satisfied with what they have achieved, and whose occupational activities and restlessness tend to be directed towards their environment and before to prove to oneself that they are not as small and inferior as they actually feel.

Simply enjoy the success

Highly resident people with high values ​​in the area of ​​goal orientation are people who simply enjoy setting new goals, learning something and reusing and developing the knowledge acquired in previous activities.

Accordingly, they also fail to achieve their goals at the expense of their health or other people's health. You might even guess: we'll look at this in detail in the context of Steve Jobs later.
