Denn um einen anerkannten Platz im jeweiligen Lebensumfeld zu erhalten, ist Wollen und Können, kurz zielgerichtetes Handeln erforderlich.
Dreh- und Angelpunkt ist dabei die Resilienz, d.h. Ich-Stärke bzw. die Widerstandsfähigkeit gegenüber den Widrigkeiten des Lebens. Denn diese entscheiden darüber, ob wir unsere eigenen Talente nutzen oder nicht. Auch reagieren widerstandfähige Menschen gelassener auf Alltagsstörungen und geraten nicht ständig in Ärger oder Konflikte, frei nach der Devise: ‚Was stört’s den Mond, wenn ihn ein Hund anbellt’!
Zielsetzung dieses Lebenspraxis-Buches ist es, die verschiedenen Facetten und Faktoren der Resilienz zu beleuchten. In anschaulich lockerem, allgemeinverständlichem Stil bringt der Bestsellerautor die Inhalte informativ und praxisnah auf den Punkt.
