Read real people’s true stories: personal success stories. Anything but fiction, in the form of short stories, in one app. Success Stories.
These success stories are based on interviews conducted by Robert Schuen. He’s got only one question: What are you really good at? - In their own personal way the interview partners talk about their personal strengths and successes. Schuen then transforms the interviews into short stories that manifest, genuinely and honestly, a moment of self-reflection and self-awareness. Especially when you read between the lines, each story will reveal its own exceptional secrets. Find out more about motivation and attitudes, about self and public images, about life situations and life experiences. And if you want to get involved you’ll certainly be encouraged to reflect on your own success; you might even assess your own skills from a new perspective and gain strength and courage for something new.
‘Success Stories - Because I Really Can’ is the title of an innovative smart phone app created by the software development company eyetea.biz and the Coaching and Consulting Institute ROSCH, both based at Graz, Austria. For a start, you will be able to choose between 20 short stories. New stories will be added every month as Robert Schuen plans to interview many more people like you and me.
The short stories originate from the idea of coach and consultant Robert Schuen that there is nobody who is not able to do something. ‘In my coaching units I’ve been confronted with the fact that there are so many people who simply have no or hardly any trust in themselves. But I am really convinced: We all can if we really want! Mostly, it’s pressure from society to lets us regard our own skills as inferior. I just want to show the people that this is not true.’, Schuen explains. So, skills like cooking and cleaning, which are generally regarded as commonplace and banal, receive a whole new meaning.
Inge Matuschek of eyetea.biz was enthusiastic about the idea. This resulted in a unique collaboration, linking human and machine-based aspects, emotion and innovation. ‘From my point of view, these stories make you really think. And I find it’s a good idea to make the stories so short I can read them wherever I want to.’, Matuschek says.
Smart Phone App
The smart phone app itself is available for free download in German and English. After you have installed and opened the app you can either switch to list view or shelf view and select a short story you would like to know more about. After reading the short teaser you can then decide if you want to read and purchase the entire story. Three stories will be available free of charge.
