**Disclaimer and note on the topic of results becoming successful results: This article is a microblog intended as food for thought in simple share and snapshot hence digestible character count in form. When you think better you do better, that’s the point.
My adamance continues in that you can materialize success – and make money in every market, economic state and environment. When you learn to adjust your focus and strategy (the way you look at and respond to things) your circumstance will change in rapid, material ways that translate to results becoming successful results.
Part of creating a solution and revised strategy to any forlorn situation is to look at the root cause. Where did you or your organization fall off track, when did you divert your focus, how does your current situation stack up to the current environment of the economy you are playing in? When a strategy is diverted from it’s often because of distraction or passive behaviour which in turns captures focus in another direction. When you find yourself needing to create solutions and respond to your current and sometimes rapidly shifting environment – pause.
Rather than succumbing to the feeling of being out of control, embrace certainty (yes, certainty). You have complete power to realign and adjust your approach to whatever your target in objective is during uncertain economic times. Whether this is an investment strategy, business strategy or what and how you live your life on the daily to be and feel your best, claiming your power and adjusting your focus is key to your success and will strengthen your strategy in approach to achieving your outcome.
Once you’ve realigned your focus and are clear and aware of what your focus is, you may come to quickly realize what you are (or were) doing isn’t working.
- How did the distraction that took your focus away in the first place come to be?
- How long has this or have many distractions been hindering your success?
Now is the time to look at the objective differently and take a different approach so that previously successful distractions become irrelevant. Maybe you can actually keep those distractions because they support your success in another way or area of life. What you get to shift and add to the mix is simply a different way of being to get what you want starting now.
The best traders, business people, surgeons and humans are the one’s who are able to adapt and shift in the moment real time. These individuals have the ability to see things differently and create the results they want no matter the circumstance and environment.
- Adaptability, resilience, flexibility and intelligence are some of their key qualities.
- These individuals stick to the plan and when the plan needs to change because a shift or externalizer becomes present, they shift as fluidly in freshly selected methodology as possible.
- These individuals aren’t attached to the how they are committed to the what.
Ask yourself why you have been committed to whatever has been distracting you rather than committing to your objective. Was the intention fleeting or the purpose not significant enough? – your motivator in achieving your objective, that is. Let’s talk outcomes. Professionals and those intently committed to achieving successful results no matter the environment hold a strong why factor (motivator). Those who are intently committed will a) continuously do whatever it takes and find away to achieve results no matter the circumstance or environment, and b) choose to see things differently allowing them to execute a shift in approach rapidly.
Life isn’t black and white and grey is often necessary. The point is understanding why the shift in focus away and what gets to happen today – to support the realignment. Change the way you look at things and should you struggle, dig deeper to understand what about achieving the outcome really matters to you. Reminder before you discard all of the grey matter, the grey is part of the ever important and outcome-contributing journey.
Dismiss time scarcity in full (unless you are a trader who is trading on a time-sensitive exchange). Timelines matter yet are another detached item from the outcome (in focus) because when times of shifting and adjustment occur extra steps sometimes get added into the approach or sometimes pieces get removed. Those who are best able to adjust win! Another note on time: everything happens at the exact time it is supposed to. You really can’t mess things up. You action or lack thereof will however determine A or B in outcome; both totally perfect and both likely absolutely different. You are the deciding factor in compass.
Point: you’re far better off relinquishing control while staying committed while adopting the way of being in adaptability and solution oriented freedom. These are the ingredients that create success, results and money in every economic state and market. You have the power. If you are looking for the repetitive punchline: change the way you look at things and utilize this way of being to reestablish your power and position for the better.
