According to a Gallup study, the causes of job dissatisfaction are 90% of workers

  • The mood in the company is in the basement
  • The workplace has become insecure
  • One is the sole breadwinner of the family
  • The daily work causes frustration
  • The working environment has been better in times

Welcome to the Club of “Millionaires”. They are one of many millions of workers who are under-affected or overwhelmed in the job. For many, this results in “internal dismissal” and service according to regulations. An alternative solution is being desired. How do you escape the vicious circle of driving, and how do you shape your working life? To this end, the following topics have been taken up. Under no circumstances should they be regarded as complete. The contents of the topics are to be understood only as useful information and help, how a satisfaction can come true, even if the waves are piling up meter high all around.

The Fear

According to clinical definition, an unpleasantly felt and at the same time vital emotional state is understood. According to Sigmund Freud, fear is an emotional reaction that arises from a preconscious perception of a conflict. Fear is a warning signal and indicates that displacement no longer works. Fear is always a bad guide and tends to manifest itself in reality. Fear always occurs in a situation that we cannot cope with. It is the uncertainty and the new that makes you afraid. Fears precede every step of the development. It leads us into previously unfamiliar and not-so-familiar terrain. Many are afraid to make a mistake and in almost all cases a culprit is sought. Fear is the number one innovation killer, followed by the fear of unemployment and illness.

Often holding is more difficult and lengthy than the actual letting go can. Hence the saying: “Better an end with terror than a terror without end”. This is to say that it is better to end an unsatisfied state with a painful sacrifice than to endure this condition for a long time. A consultant once said to me in a very difficult situation: If a door closes, many doors open anew. At the time, I didn’t know or believe it, but as it turned out afterwards, he was right.

The goal

Why do we need goals? Goals are a deliberate state to be achieved by appropriate behaviour. In addition, a small excursion. In 1979, Harvard University launched a long-term study of the careers of graduates. The result of the study was as follows: 83 percent of graduates had no career goals.
Fourteen percent had clear goals for their careers and only 3 percent had clear goals for their careers and had written those goals. The result is very clear. The 3 percent earned on average ten times as much as the group of 83 percent who had no goals. The situation is similar in our population. Only 5 percent of people have goals and only 3 percent have written them. The latter are those who develop professionally and personally and constantly take on new challenges. Have they already written down their goals? How is a goal formulated?

What is important in the goal formulation is the WHAT to be achieved and not HOW to achieve it. The HOW is the question of what actions are derived from the target formulation. The target formulation must be carefully handled and the desired final state described. Targets must be formulated SMART (S-specific, M-measurable, A-attractive, R-realistic, T-termintable) and have the following characteristics:

  • The goal, the desired final state must be written in concrete terms
  • The target must be measurable
  • The goal must be challenging, challenging and attractive
  • The goal must be realistic (achievable)
  • The goal is to schedule

The motivation

What would you do if you tried something 10 times and it still doesn’t work? Probably giving up, as well as 99.9 percent of the population. For Jack Ma, the founder of Alibaba, giving up was not an option. Before he founded Alibaba, he applied for a job about 30 times, but he had always received a rejection. He is now one of China’s richest men …

Motivation is a very special success factor. A distinction can be made between extrinsical and intrinsic motivation. The extrinsical motivation consists of external stimuli such as remuneration for work of the wages. The intrinsic motivation consists of inner impulses to want to make something for fun. Working or learning on your own. Motivation is the inner drive to set something in motion, to want to do something. With the right goal formulation, they have taken their future into their own hands, as far as possible. Decide that they are no longer determined by the circumstances, but that they determine the circumstances. You alone can make a difference if you do it. If you want to be successful, you need to use your willpower. The motivation is the desire to do something, to pursue their determination to a goal and to pursue them with perseverance to the end. Self-motivation thrives on constant renewal. Make your personal decision today and start it.
