Dieses Buch geht auf einer ganz anderen Ebene dem "Erfolgs"-Phantom nach. Sie finden darin weder kaufmännische Gestaltungsvorschläge oder unternehmerische Leitfäden noch neurolinguistische Verhaltenstipps. Es geht einige Ebenen tiefer. Die GRUNDLAGEN des Erfolgs liegen immer in uns selbst, unabhängig vom Startlevel, der Ausbildung oder gar Intelligenz. Wem durch seine Familiengeschichte ein Erfolg verboten ist, kann noch so gute Voraussetzungen haben: Er wird scheitern. Diese und ähnliche wirkende Verstrickungen an´s Licht zu bringen und aufzulösen, ist das Ziel dieses Buches.
