Prince or Meme?
Princes are usually long on the road until they find what they are looking for. Princesses, kings, treasures and whatever you can find in fairy tales. In the process, they have become irritated with resistance and adversity, but in the end, of course, because the actors happily live to the end of their days.
I do not know a fairy tale in which the prince sitting in his castle, cruising around the pool and just waiting - because he has no idea where and where he could look for:
"To be or not to be? Princesses should be out there? May well be. But what if not? And if I'm going? But it's so dull here, and I'm not the youngest anymore. And the dragons? I'm a bit afraid of them. Time to look in front of the castle gate? I could do that. But does that bring something? Maybe tomorrow comes a good idea. Or any sorcerer or someone else will drop by and tell me what to do. Good plan. Man, is that barren here. "
Comparer or director?
Princes in the fairy tale are rather directors who actively take their lives into their own hands. Many others are more like extras, passively waiting for something to change.
The question, however, should ask everyone is whether he is in his life rather extra or director. If you had to decide now, quite honestly, what attitude do you tend to have more?
Change patterns thanks to neuroplasticity
No matter how you feel, the good news is that even though we are less self-effective than it is good for us, this does not necessarily have to be the case!
The neuroplasticity of our brain, that is the ability to learn for life, gives us the opportunity to change ground thinking patterns as well. Think of the highway comparison of the neurobiologist Gerald Hüther - it is primarily a matter of will and commitment.
The longer the horse is dead, the more reactive your attitude
If you have been holding an unsatisfying job for a long time, it is high time to think about how active or reactive your career strategy has been. Even if you do not like to read it:
The longer your horse is dead, the more reactive your attitude is, the more you will be governed by your "inner extras". All "reasons to ride a dead horse" are finally extras arguments.
There are neither flower heads nor princesses available for extras
With a purely reactive career strategy, today nothing can be gained. The times when one had to put on one horse only once in a lifetime are definitely over.
Each of us is asked to take care of our own career management, and this is not just for the jobs at the top of the career ladder. The more we dare to take over the direction of our career planning, the more we will get it and the more fun we will have!
Someday I'll be a dream
Oh yes: under extras - at film and at work - the dream is widespread, one day still to be discovered. Then someone will recognize their qualities all of a sudden and give them the great opportunity.
Of course, it is not necessary to become active yourself - it is enough to place yourself as decoratively as possible in the third row and to wait. A really nice dream. How little of that is a reality and that one really shies from getting off a totel horse, I will in the coming days in a series Best of HR – Berufebilder.de® demonstrate.
