Jasmin has one goal: "I should talk to my boss about the work distribution - but I just can not do it ..." Malte also has one thing: "I could be promoted if I take this additional qualification. I've been thinking of that for months, but I can not get the curve! "Well, then both have to motivate themselves better! Motivation? A mistake.
Jasmin is so overworked that she is extremely motivated to make a difference - but she does not. Malte wants the promotion - but he does not register for the course: motivation is necessary. But it is not sufficient. By far not.
Conversion strength is necessary
Who is motivated for his goals, above all, needs implementation strength in order to achieve them. This willpower, which creates acts, is called Volition (pronounced German, like "ammunition"). It is nothing new.
Already Schopenhauer was interested in 1819 for the Volition (in "Die Welt als Wille und Vorstellung"). But in the years since then, "motivation" has simply become the more popular fashion. This avenges itself to this day for all who are motivated to the hair tips, but still not achieve their goals.
Volition - the opposite of motivation?
Nevertheless? That's why motivation is not enough. If I want to achieve a goal, it is not enough to want it very badly - above all, you have to take the necessary steps to achieve the goal undertake, For example, when the boss says to Jasmine, "Work distribution? That stays the way it is. No topic at present! "
With that, Jasmins motivation is on the ground. But because her will is strong, she says with teeth clenched, "For me. Let's talk about this."
Will you can train
The strength of a person's will is reflected in particular in tasks for which no normal person is motivated: disagreeing bosses, cleaning the basement, sorting files, tax returns ... You do not have such a strong will? Let's change that.
Many believe: Will power is or has not. This is bloody mischief. The will is like a muscle: If he is trained, he gains strength. How do you train will? Start small. If you go past the chocolate (or another seducer) five times at home, instead of having to go back every time, it is easier for you to tell your colleague no if he wants to unload a doofjob.
Training that does not take time
If you regularly (!) Tackle tasks that you have had a hard time while doing sports, this Will to Win will transfer to your job with enough frequency and intensity of training.
But you have no time for training? They do not need you. Every second, a new training opportunity presents itself to you. Jasmine, for example, drinks too little water in the office. So she says to herself: "Every time I save something on the PC, I take a sip!" That's Willpower training, it does not take time, it can be done anywhere: train!
