Motivation Boot Camp – Power Days
Ever wanted to experience a soccer stadium atmosphere combined with some intellectual input regarding how to use more of your potential. Well then maybe the Jügen Höller Power Days are something to consider.
Saturday 10am the event started in Nürnberg, Germany together with 2200 people and the song “I got the Power” from Snap and immediately the energy level in the hall rises. In this environment it was easy to learn new things. I liked how Jürgen Höller and Mike Dierssen used metaphors to explain their topics.
One exercise I really enjoyed was for instance everyone was handed out a 100 centimeter paper yardstick and then was told if you are a man cut it of at 85, for a woman at 90 (to show the typical life expectance). Then you should to some calculations: Start from your current age and depending if you are a non-smoker or smoker, eat healthy or unhealthy, do sport regularly or no sport, … you changed the years (+15,+10,+5, 0,-5). The end result you subtracted from your starting point (85 or 90) and you got your remaining years. Well that was very vividly for me. Sure not everything is in your hand but you can do a good part yourself to stay healthy and increase the odds to live a long and happy life.
Well to summarize the event: I liked the “stadium atmosphere” and the energy levels, I met some really great people and got some nice inspirations out of it. Here some sayings from those two days:
“Grow your comfort zone then your personality grows”
“Workout leds to championship”
“Never give up and always give 110%” (the clapping and cheering to the song “I got the Power” was a metaphor for that)
“Never think for your customer”
“The more successful you are, the more humbled you should be”
“Never stop to grow because that’s the beginning of dying”
“Strangers are only friends you don’t know yet”
“Success always starts at home”
“Success is 15% expertise and 85% personality. Invest in your personality if you want to become rich”
“How you do your job, is how you live your life”
“Successful people are decisive”
“Every NO is one step closer to a YES” (The power of the quote: e.g. 1 out of 50 will say YES, so every NO gets you closer to the yes)
“5 pillars of your life house: Career, Finances, Health, Relationships, Private Development” (Have 4 or 5 pillars set up you have a great foundation for your life house, only 3 and the foundation is not solid anymore not speaking off when only 1 or 2 pillars are in order …)
