"We live in an age where there is probably only one constant - and that is change." This is what management consultant and motivation trainer Jörg Löhr claims. He says: "If we look at digitalization, globalization and the change in the world of work, we discover an incredible number of chances and possibilities. But why do so few people take advantage of these opportunities? And vice versa: What are people doing right who seize their opportunities and move forward?
In his talk Jörg Löhr tells you! To do this, he first asks whether there is a pattern or certain steps with which changes can be successfully mastered. The well-known consultant and speaker is convinced that they exist. He tells: "Every change process has three basic steps - I call them the triad of change." Are you curious? Good, because here come his three practical steps for you!
1. raise your standards
If you want to take the next step, you have to raise your standards. Why? Because we humans are adaptive beings. Jörg Löhr explains: "We adapt our amount of energy to our demands. If you make small demands, your organism will provide a small amount of energy. If you increase the demands, then the amount of energy increases. But this only works as long as your brain thinks it makes sense. If you overdo it, it will eventually break. It's really quite simple logic, isn't it?
We all know people for whom visions and hallucinations have a smooth transition. Jörg Löhr: "If you want to raise your standards, you need courage. You also need aspiration goals - and not avoidance goals. Because if we have avoidance goals, we don't really get into action and don't use our resources." So raise your standards and set yourself clear goals!
2 Jörg Löhr: "Change your limiting beliefs!“
Beliefs are an inner force that drives you - but sometimes they can also block or even destroy you. If you regularly recall sentences like 'I have no talent', 'I'm not good enough' or 'I'm too young or too old', you slow yourself down. The expert knows: "A limiting belief is like having the handbrake on in a car. You get ahead, but never with the options available to you.
How to change limiting beliefs or even get rid of them? In the first step you determine them. Then you question your negative beliefs: Find out what happens if you do not change your beliefs. This question may cause pain. But it is this pain that takes you out of your comfort zone. Next, you replace limiting beliefs with positive and encouraging beliefs. Look for evidence and experience for your new beliefs. You can do this by talking to people who have already achieved what you want to achieve. And now visualize how you achieve your goals with your new beliefs. Because only what you can see, you will achieve.
3. find your strategy
Jörg Löhr: "First of all, ask yourself the question where you currently stand - and where you want to stand in two, five and ten years. Write it down, put it in writing, and define the strategy." If you realize that your plan doesn't work to reach your goal in time, then change something. Keep changing and changing - until it works. The expert says: "It's no problem at all to fall down. The problem is when we fall down. The important thing is not whether we fall down, but how far we bounce back."
But of course another factor must be added: your desire for success! Your shining eyes and the enthusiasm to move extraordinary things for the future. Jörg Löhr: "Enthusiasm gives you wings. It is a magic whose magic you cannot escape. And to achieve the extraordinary, we don't need a special position or power, but enthusiasm that gives us a fascinating presence.
Jörg Löhr: "Burn with enthusiasm!“
If you do what you do with heart and passion, the world is open to you. Turn up the knob of your enthusiasm and watch what happens! Jörg Löhr: "Whenever I meet people who make the difference, I notice that a very special fire of passion and enthusiasm burns within them. If you want to make a difference and be successful, you should know the meaning of the number 72: Anything we humans don't do within 72 hours of a decision reduces the probability of its realization to less than 10 percent."
Make the difference and tackle the things that make an extraordinary life for you! And always remember the words of St. Augustine, who once said so aptly: "You can only ignite in others what burns in yourself."
