Comfort zone

What a nice word! It sounds like soft pillows, warmth and the smell of cinnamon – in short: heavenly!
So why the hell everyone wants to tell me that I should leave this place?

Optimism

Let’s be honest: we simply have no influence on some things!
May it be the broken water pipe in the basement, the new boss or the weather. No matter how thoroughly we eat our plate, how fervently we perform a rain dance or how much we cringe … some things are beyond our control.
Nevertheless, we are not helpless of the “storms” of life. Our weapon? Optimism.

Micro adventures

According to Wikipedia, an adventure is “a risky venture or an experience that is very different from everyday life”. That means an adventure will not only be an adventure if you are on an expedition for more than six months or on another continent.

The dream as destination

Josh has a dream. He wants to drive the big red car, driving through the city with a tossing siren and all other cars have to wait. He imagines this exactly and in this moment the 5-years-old Josh knows one thing for sure: He is going to be a Firefighter.

Motivation

Why it’s so often just a dream?

In newspapers, television and the growing media diversity, we repeatedly meet with reports of people who have a completely different way of life than the masses of the people around us. People who travel around the world set up aid organisations, or rebuild a farm so it is ecological.
We are deeply impressed … and still, go on exactly where we left off. In some cases, however, the reports of other life models affect our emotions. What we heard has met our desire…
… we start dreaming … and finally, go on exactly where we left off.

Perseverance

If you fail, you often doubt yourself. Not smart or talented enough – so is usually your own assessment.
However, according to US studies, a quite different factor has far greater impact on reaching goals than intelligence or talent. What counts most is perseverance.
