Reorientation in the crisis: New ways if the old one is no longer correct

Career choice It traditionally works like this: We choose a profession, an apprenticeship - and we should practice it for our entire life if possible. But what happens when we suddenly notice that the path we have chosen is no longer the right one?

away vocation to--

What the company expects

In the 80 years, when I graduated in business administration and business studies, many gifts from my childhood were forgotten.

The childish joy gave way to a sense of usefulness and prestige. My family, the school system and the society formulated expectations that I rationally considered convincing.

Either or - or not?

I became a man who conscientiously turned to conservative ways of life. At any rate, I had a vast supply of opinions that did not match any of my own life experiences.

The Twen focused on reason and logic remained in the Either-or-Program. It was true that during my studies and training I had felt a certain unease about my professional goals.

Objectives in the labor market

The career choice was rather an answer to the factual prospects on the labor market. For example, psychological aptitude tests were open to the most promising economic opportunities for me.

With my abilities for figures and my good understanding of the structure and planning, I became a business owner with a focus on accounting and human resources. The servant had long been the only master in my house.

When the soul does not play

But at some point something did not feel right anymore. Had I displaced the soul until then, it came just after the successful study to the inner debacle. With a good exam in the bag, a deep sadness arose and I felt sick.

For my social environment it was an incomprehensible scenario. When, after many months, my income situation assumed threatening colors, I began to return to working life.

Do not forget the vocation!

Thanks to the relaxed financial situation, I was able to visit a young naturopath in my birthplace of Cologne. Since I was already after a short time a trainee offer in Bad Homburg received, we had to finish the treatment however.

In our last conversation, she gave me the advice: “Don't forget your calling!” At that point, I didn't understand what she meant.

A spiritual journey

On my way through the world of financial institutions, the intuitive spirit was only sporadic, and with a soft tone. Sometimes I remembered the words of the curative practitioner.

So on Christmas Eve, when my wife gave me the book of Shirley MacLaine: The Way of St. James: A Spiritual Journey. It took some time. But then I broke up, and the pilgrimage took me not only to the place of pilgrimage in Spain.


I later wrote and completed a theological term paper on the subject of this book Coaching- and pastoral training. I always came across the subject of vocation - and it captivated me.

During the years of practical work with people in situations of upheaval, I was clearthat the crises are a useful element in the change process. In a way it is Sense can only be experienced through his absence.

Ratio or feelings?

People, however, are both rational and emotional beings. So a customer decided to emigrate to southern France. She announced her very lucrative position in Germany to free her, which promised her life more meaning.

Her love for Provence and the dream of setting up a business in our neighboring country became so strong that she set off.

New food for the body and mind

People can therefore be prepared for enormous efforts when something is no longer correct in the food chain or when a new food is simply called.

Work-Life-Sense is based on a “concept of food” that includes both survival and life emotions. Man is a body-soul-spirit unit and starts to move when at least one of the components calls for new or different food.

How do we achieve need fulfillment?

The first step will be to identify and evaluate a food deficit. In this course I will emphasize repeatedly that all three components are taken into consideration in a holistic change process.

For survival and well-being, we need income to fulfill needs and promoting circumstances that allow for health and vitality. The soul needs meaning as food. Only if we manage to do justice to all components, to balance these components, can we speak of a happy and fulfilling professional life.

Coping with crises holistically

Then only the reversal can become a central opportunity. Through the multitude of discussions with qualified and talented professionals, I realized:

Happiness and success depend on whether we are able to cope with holistic career reorientation in crises. Holistic means for me that we appreciate the intuitive mind as well as the rational mind.
