Harmful simplicity


There are countless tips for motivation. Unfortunately, many of them do not use anything, but rather harm, because they do not work in everyday life and in their simplicity all "you just have to want" often cause rejection, so that we turn away from the motivation theories.

But of course there are also many good and well-founded motivational tips - just separate the wheat from the chaff. That's exactly what Steffen Kirchner does with his book "Totmotiviert?". He reveals common motivational lies and explains what really helps to boost motivation.

Pseudocoaching and motivational myths - a statement


"Times of cheapest fast-food motivation are coming to an end. Many people just have enough of the eternal evocation of self-belief, the tireless appeal "You just have to want it right" and, above all, this self-firing Taschakka theater. "

The quote sums up what author Steffen Kirchner is about in his book "Totmotiviert". His guidebook is an angry, often amusing account with the sleight of hand of the trainers including education on effective motivational techniques.

Stop the awkward chakka roar


Even if Kirchner (whom you perhaps only know as a sportsmoderator of ZDF or Sky) at the beginning of his book, he emphasizes so often that he does not want to be considered as a nest-muddler: Ross and riders get their fat away.

Carsten Maschmeyer and the "Chakka Inventor" Emile Ratelband will have little fun with the book (especially at the passages where they are named). Everyone else will read the book with enjoyment. Kirchner's pointed writing ensures the best in entertainment.

The problem with denying problems


The pseudo-methods of many coaches are systematically unmasked: First, the author calls the pseudo-thesis, then checks the truth and finally works out what is still tenable from the original claim. Not much at all.

Then he completely transforms it into a new, valid approach. A total of 13's most common "motivational lies" are "disposed of" this way.

Successes can not be programmed


This includes, for example, the promise "to be able to program for success". Achievements, according to Kirchner, can not be programmed, but are the "results of wrong decisions from which we learn".

Also phrases like "There are no problems. There are only challenges "come in the shredder. Kirchner succinctly: "The problem is that many believe that they should not have any problems."

What do Schwarzenegger, Kate Moss and Robbie Williams have in common?


There are many problems with this: Or what do you think Arnold Schwarzenegger, Lionel Messi, Kate Moss and Robbie Williams have in common?

No matter what you're typing, it's probably wrong. Because these world stars have the low ego in common: self-doubt, an "unbalanced soul life". Fort also with the statement, only a stable soul situation creates success experiences.

Self-awareness does not fall from heaven


There are countless counterexamples. And self-confidence does not fall from the sky anyway. In fact, according to Kirchner, "it works like a muscle that has to be trained on a daily basis: big successes in life often start with little deeds".

Perhaps the best motivational and self-coaching book of the year. With a touch of ironic bitchiness, Kirchner throws many of her fellow trainers their truisms in the ears and shows what really matters when you progress want. Recommendation!
