Category: Sports & Recreation

Page: 288

View: 5287

Laufen ist meine Droge. Ehrlich gesagt, früher waren es Drogen (und Alkohol), aber jetzt bin ich dem gesündesten aller Laster verfallen. Das Laufen hat mir geholfen, meine inneren Dämonen zu bekämpfen, fünf Weltmeistertitel zu gewinnen und mit dem ganzen Mist klarzukommen, mit dem ich in meinem Leben konfrontiert war. Man sagt, was uns nicht umbringe, mache uns stärker. In diesem Buch setze ich mich mit all den Dingen auseinander, die mich zwar nicht umgebracht haben, es aber durchaus hätten können: mein Suchtpotenzial, Depressionen, die Verurteilung meines Vaters wegen Mordes, die schmerzhafte Trennung von der Mutter meiner Kinder und das Problem, das Leben eines Familienvaters mit dem eines Sportlers in Einklang zu bringen. Es geht aber auch um die großartigen Dinge in meinem Leben: meine Kinder, Snooker, die Entlassung meines Vaters aus dem Gefängnis, gute Freunde, die mich unterstützt haben und den Psychiater Dr. Steve Peters, der mir beigebracht hat, nicht vor dem Leben davonzulaufen. Zu einigen meiner verrücktesten Aktionen äußere ich mich in diesem Buch zum ersten Mal - warum ich ein Spiel gegen Stephen Hendry mittendrin abbrach und warum ich in einem Spiel gegen Mark King mit einem feuchten Tuch über dem Kopf dasaß. Dieses Buch handelt davon, was es kostet, ein Spitzensportler zu sein, und welche Opfer man bringen muss - besessenes Training, Egoismus. Und es handelt davon, wie es ist, Leidenschaft für eine Sache zu empfinden. Jeder, den jemals die Begeisterung für das Laufen gepackt hat, wird das nachempfinden können.

Frag immer erst: warum

Wie Top-Firmen und Führungskräfte zum Erfolg inspirieren

Author: Simon Sinek

Publisher: Redline Wirtschaft

ISBN: 3864146518

Category: Business & Economics

Page: 224

View: 3356

Am Beginn einer jeden Erfolgsgeschichte steht eine einfache Frage: Warum? Warum sind manche Organisationen profitabler als andere? Warum werden einige Führungskräfte von ihren Mitarbeitern mehr geschätzt und andere weniger? Warum sind manche Menschen in der Lage, immer und immer wieder erfolgreich zu sein? In seinem Bestseller, der nun zum ersten Mal in deutscher Sprache erscheint, zeigt Simon Sinek, dass erfolgreiche Persönlichkeiten wie Martin Luther King Jr. oder Steve Jobs alle nach demselben, natürlichen Muster dachten, handelten und kommunizierten. Am Anfang ihres Wirkens stand immer die Frage nach dem Warum. Mit diesem Ansatz schafften sie es, bedeutende Dinge zu vollbringen und darüber hinaus ihre Mitstreiter zu inspirieren. Sich an diesen Vorbildern orientierend, gibt Sinek in seinem Ratgeber nun Führungskräften, Unternehmen, aber auch Privatpersonen einen Leitfaden an die Hand, der zum endgültigen Erfolg verhilft. Dabei erklärt er das so erfolgreiche Muster, welches dem goldenen Schnitt ähnlich ist, und auf den drei elementaren Fragen basiert: Warum? Wie? Was? Dadurch eröffnen sich dem Leser völlig neue Möglichkeiten und er wird lernen, dass die Motivierung von Mitarbeitern viel zielführender ist als ihre Manipulation! Und dies geht ganz einfach: einfach »Warum?« fragen.
