Decide for yourself! (Otherwise, others do)

A new car or a vacation with the family? To raise a higher loan for the expansion of your own company? Retire with the partner or rather keep the single apartment?

There are decision-making questions like these, which make many people feel sleepless nights. Often even when the decision was made long ago.

Doubts - even if the decision was made long ago

Because then the doubts gnaw away: Was that really correct? With his book “The Shaolin Principle”, author Bernhard Moestl wants to rid you of such needs once and for all.

In seven chapters he prepares the way for sovereign decisions in professional and private life - without accompanying doubts, without subsequent regret.

Consequence replaces the fight

The guide is divided into seven chapters, which are symbolic of the seven breaths which the legend requires a Shaolin monk to make a decision consciously and safely.

The first task is to make a decision consciously, so as not to leave it to others. And the decision then to implement without if and but, either in a single step or through intermediate decisions.

With the determination of the Shaolin monks

This determination distinguishes the Shaolin monks: “Whenever they decided to make a decision, they did so to the very end. The reputation that preceded them soon became so remarkably persuasive that they no longer had to fight. ”

The greatest danger of false decisions lies in the casualness in which they are made. Habit, prejudice, or routine, however, are bad guides, as Moestl shows.

Habit as the enemy of good decisions

"Because if we never change direction, it is said in Shaolin, it is clear from the start where our path will end." Instead, use the exact facts for your decision that actually affect your situation. Trust your intuition too.

However, there is no guarantee that a decision will not have unforeseen, negative effects. Of course this can not correct the teaching of Shaolin.

Every right decision is the result of earlier mistakes

But you can learn from the monks how to deal with failures and wrong decisions constructively without torturing yourself: “If a decision turns out to be wrong, there is nothing to put into perspective or lie to. Then you have to make a new decision immediately. ”

In the future you will make decisions sovereign meeting instead of enduring suffering promises "The Shaolin Principle". The right book for everyone who keeps despairing about seemingly difficult decisions, but makes small everyday decisions so lightly that they are often wrong.
