Imagine you bought a new car and picked it up straight from the factory. You are so proud and on the way home you stop by a grocery store to buy a bottle of champagne. When you get back to your car, you see a small scratch on the driver’s door. “It wasn’t there before. What kind of sh** is that …? ”Can you imagine how you would jump out of your pants now? Instead of getting excited about the new car, you tell everyone that some dumb a** in the parking lot scratched your brand new car. For days you´d tell this story to everyone – whether they like to hear it or not. Can you relate to this?

What are you so upset about? “Norman, that’s obvious …” Yes. The car now has its first scratch. You know, it is inevitable that your car will be as perfect in the coming days, months and years as it was on day one. Your lanyard hits the door once, the car wash easily scratches the paintwork, someone in the parking lot bumps their door against your door and and and. So, you get upset for a week about something that is inevitable anyway. Are you serious? The crux of the matter is that you wouldn’t have expected the scratch so early.

Same at work. In my motivational lecture, I keep talking about topics such as digitization, sustainability and changed customer behavior. You often don’t want to go along with all of that. However, it is inevitable. Your only subject is that you were hoping that this situation would come to you much later. That annoys you above everything. It’s not going the way you’d like it to go.

You know, I have had many experiences in my life in which my personal schedule was different from that of God. And? Am I still alive? Yes, it seems so. Otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this newsletter now. What if you take a deep breath every now and then, especially in regards to the increasing aggressiveness in our world, realizing that this thing would have come anyway and then, have a brief upset and then put a stop to it. Because with your bad mood you are permanently harming only one person on this planet. Who might that be?

In the time you have gained, you could think again about your big goals that have gone out of the window in the last few months. I show you how to do this in my book “I AM GRÄTER”. Since you probably already have this book, I have a special Christmas present for you.

Exclusively for my book readers
I’ll give you 90 minutes of pure inspiration. On Tuesday, December 14th at 6 pm CET. I invite you to an online lecture that was previously only available during my cruise lectures at sea. “Hollywood here I come” is an insight into my 400+ celebrity conversations that I have had over the past few years. What did Michelle Obama, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone and the many others say when I asked “What is most important to be successful in life”? I have taken out the original quotes that are most important to me. Because in “I AM GRÄTER” you will only find the summary of all these quotes.

I will also tell you what happened backstage at those meetings and how the celebrities, far from the media, really are. At the end you will find out which three points are most important for me personally in order to enjoy the adventure of life to the maximum and to ignite and live one’s passion in the easiest way.

How can you be part of this unique and exclusive online event?
If you already have my book, you don’t have to do anything else. If you want to be there and don’t have it yet, get the book by December 14th. I will send you the access data for our Zoom Call via this newsletter next week.

I wish you a super nice week and make a note in your calendar: Tuesday, December 14th at 6pm CET. That’s going to be great or even GRÄTER 🙂

P.S. If you think “Norman, you can’t control whether I already have the book. I’ll just go to the lecture and nobody finds out”, you’re absolutely right. I won’t control it either. In addition, I know whoever cheats on other people for their own benefit on a small scale, will also do it on a large scale. So, I’m very relaxed because the law of reflection works like a Swiss watch. What you give will come back to you. If you cheat, you will be cheated too. Or as in the example above; if you are constantly in a bad mood, you will only attract people who are equally in a bad mood.
