There are many doors open to us in our lives. When all is said and done, following our dreams and leading a meaningful life is actually quite easy. Yes, really! But trapped in a fast-paced and complex everyday life full of obligations, many of us do not feel lightness or ease, but pressure, stress and hardship. Increasing expectations and demands weigh heavily on our shoulders - in our professional lives and in our personal ones. Anyone who attempts to fulfil the demands placed on them – both the external ones and the ones we create ourselves - becomes worn down and perhaps even burns out completely. The end result of all this is that we suffer from a major need to reduce the pace and restore balance. In order to escape the vicious cycle of overwork and exhaustion, we must learn to get better at saying “NTNT”: NTNT to overly-ambitious goals when they demotivate us, NTNT to our fear of failure, NTNT to the demands of others who cause us to live an inauthentic life. NTNT to those who tell us how we “should” be. NTNT to the compulsion to constantly be better and faster. NTNT to the ever-present sense of obligation. In this inspiring book, Cordula Nussbaum shows how we can regain courage, serenity and lightness of being to live a meaningful, successful and happy life. She provides a rich selection of positive messages combined with stories, anecdotes and practical suggestions for action.
