Trusting the Process

‘It’s ok to not have the answer yet, continue your journey and trust the process’

 

This is a quote that should be said and listened to far more often than it is nowadays; we all want to find success whether it is in our personal lives, in our career, in a sports team, in absolutely anything and everything that we do. However, no matter how close we get, we tend to make the mistake of choosing the quickest journey to get there.

 

Sport is a fantastic place to witness this because it is experienced every single year all around the world; for example, basketball teams that go 3-1 up in the play-offs. For some reason, once they go one game away from winning the series, they start to play differently because they are looking for the quickest route of success. This was seen just recently as the Warriors came from 3-1 down to win the series 4-3 and go through to the finals. How did they do this? They trusted their ability, they trusted their preparation and they trusted the process.

This should be taken advantage of every single day and used to get exactly what you want in your personal life as well as your career. If you have a goal for your career and you get close, don’t suddenly chase the quickest route of reaching your goal, trust the process and continue with what you have been doing. This process is clearly working so why would you risk changing it? Ultimately, it may take a bit longer but as long as you have the faith, it will happen.

 

Life is tough; there is always going to be somebody waiting around the corner ready to trip you up, there is always going to be a pitfall for you to get hurt by. As long as you put your trust in the process, you will be staying safe from these setbacks. This does require a certain personality and it can be hard to get used to because from the outside, it may look as though you aren’t making any progress but you will know that you are doing the right thing. Others will get frustrated and will become impatient which simply leads to failure.

 

This isn’t just a method that ‘could work’ or that ‘has potential’, this is proven and can help in a number of different areas of your life. People use this every single day whether they are trying to maintain a personal relationship, climb the proverbial ladder in their career, or even trying to lose weight when on a diet.

As mentioned, this will not be easy. It may take daily reminders but in the long run, you can chase your dreams whilst believing in yourself, remaining focused and trusting the pr

BECOMING WHO YOU WANT TO BE

BECOMING WHO YOU WANT TO BE – My 3 Tips

Do you find yourself with a distinct lack of motivation to wake up in the morning? Have you ever looked in the mirror only to ask ‘how did I get here? This wasn’t the plan!’? The fact of the matter is;  your life is in your own hands and if you want to change it, only you have the tools to do so.

<a href=BECOMING WHO YOU WANT TO BE” width=”300″ height=”200″ />

Let’s start this off with a little exercise; where do you see yourself in five years time? It’s as simple as that, look ahead five years and notice what is different from your life now. You can then look ahead to how your life will be in five years if nothing changes. If the two are vastly different, you have to make some changes starting today.

 

 

Here are my 3 tips to become the person you want to be:

 

#1 Start Today – Let that exercise be the motivation to make a change today. If you find yourself in somewhat of a rut, whether it is due to work, relationships, location, or more, try to make it your goal to achieve that vision that you have for yourself in five years time.

start today

It is very easy to feel down after thinking about the plans that you had for your life and then to notice how none of them have been achieved but what good will this do? This still won’t allow you to achieve your goals so instead, feel motivated so that you don’t have the same conversation with yourself another five years down the line.

#2 Create A Vision – You should use the vision you just thought about to create an image of where you want to be in life. Don’t just think ‘I want money’, what do you want money for? Build a life for yourself and maybe even build a standard day for your future life. Try to include as much detail as possible such as sights, smells, where you are living, who you are living with, the tasks you have for the day ahead, etc.

 

#3 Repeat Daily – It is important not to lose sight of this vision because you have done this before and it has only led you to where you are now. It doesn’t mean you have to think of it every moment of the day but spend a minute or two building your vision and adding to it daily. This way you have a constant reminder of who you want to be and a thriving motivation to get there.

BECOMING WHO YOU WANT TO BE

Ultimately, life can be hard but with a small amount of time each day you can be whoever you want to be. This isn’t the same as dreaming because you will be building a vision of an achievable life. Also, it doesn’t matter if you get five years down the line and you aren’t living that vision; as long as you are still making progress towards it, it could take 7, 10 or even 15 years. The point is, you will get there.

4 Ways to Stay Truly Motivated

4 Ways to Stay Truly Motivated

Exile Negative Thinking

5 Ways to Stay Truly Motivated

Once you set a target, forget about who you are or where you are from, the number one difficulty you will surely face is yourself. You begin to have negative thoughts on how difficult it is for you to achieve something. It’s important you are not influenced by personal feelings or opinion; however, you should not give unreasonable negative thoughts the chance to lead you. You remain the decider and each time you make a decision, no negative thought should be allowed to interfere.

 
Stay far away from Naysayers

5 Ways to Stay Truly Motivated

It already seems like a difficult task when you try not to allow your mind interfere in your plans, however, another challenge you can face in your life is a set of people who keeps predicting negatively, they keep telling you why you can’t do this, or why you can’t do that. I call them prophets of doom. These set of people are the same reason behind many idea failures today. These people are poisonous and will try to stop you from reaching your goal. Once you realize they have no positive impact, then you must let go of them and welcome people with positive mindset who can help you achieve your goals.

 
Be of High Quality

You want to keep doing what you know how to do best, however, instead of pursuing your potential in a straight manner, try to keep learning even though you are good at it. Do things that make you better and over the time make you the best.

 
Focus on your Reason

5 Ways to Stay Truly Motivated

More often, when you are struggling to achieve a goal, you do that because you have an ultimate goal in mind. You should let this ultimate goal be in the leading position of your mind all the time. The reason you started working in direction to your goal is because of the advantages that follows when you accomplish it. If you keep thinking about it, you remain motivated.

Succeed Even After Failing

To some people, failure can quite literally be the end of the world. They try to lead their lives as close to ‘perfection’ as possible and if something goes wrong, they have failed and they struggle to get over it. To them, it proves that they are human and that things can go wrong but this is something that they don’t like or enjoy.

 

If you are reading this so far whilst nodding along, you have to realise that this isn’t a healthy way to live. You have to realise that there are certain things in life that you simply cannot control and so things will go wrong from time to time. However, this doesn’t mean that you have some sort of problem that you have to fix. The most important thing about failure is how you deal with it; of course, the easiest thing to do is let it get you down and dwell on how badly you have failed. Although this is the easier method, it definitely isn’t the best one.

success

The best way to deal with failure is to use it as an opportunity to learn; it gives you a chance to learn what you can do to improve so that you can do better the next time. Let’s say you have an interview for your dream job and you fail to get offered the role; you could be down and think ‘it’s all over’ OR you can find out where you went wrong and learn how to improve so you ensure you get the job next time. It is important to find out why you failed; in our example, did you fail because you failed to do enough research on the company? Was it because your resume wasn’t up to scratch? Whatever the reason for your failure, you can then treat it as a stepping stone towards growth to ensure it doesn’t happen again.

 

This is what’s known as ‘The Art of Failure’; knowing how to deal with failure is seen as an art because it can sometimes teach you more than success. If you want to succeed in life, you have to harness this power because you will be sure to hit some bumps along the way. If you find yourself failing often, see if there is a common denominator for your failure and find out how to fix it. Maybe it is your mindset; do you need to be more confident?

As soon as you realise that failure can help you to learn and that you have the power to do so, overcoming a problem suddenly isn’t as hard as it seems. Once you breakdown exactly why you failed and work out solutions to this problem, your personal development will improve dramatically as not all people have this skill; you will suddenly set yourself apart from the rest of the crowd. Treat life like a journey and make sure that you take the hard times alongside the good times; if you ever fail at something, pick yourself up, dust yourself off, find out why you failed and improve in that area so you can continue on the road to success.

I know it seems like a topic that everyone seems to cover every so often but this will be an article that you can relate to in your everyday lives.

Prepare for Battle

As that popular saying goes, “Practice makes it perfect”. When we are out there seeking prosperity we have to be prepared for all kinds of scenarios, specially the tough ones, and learn from them to make the next moves better and flawless. There are many ways people can avoid a situation in which they are facing the aftermath of arbitrary or inefficient decisions, but sometimes even the most well planned moves are not fail-proof and you have to deal with the failure. And succeeding on coming out from such situation is basically what separates a a go-getter from the average Joe and Jane.

The Damage Is Already Done

No one said said life would be all good news and gains. Life is a steady state it constantly shifting from water to wine and vice versa out of the blue, you have to be much more prepared and tuned to what is going on around the world to foresee any disasters before it reaches shore.
When strategies do not work and lead to failure, often you have forgotten some detail or scenario that was a main pillar in the foundations of your plan. Failure is quite different from a mistake or vulnerability, it is a situation that requires a whole new brainstorming and planning to repair damages. So it was not a slippery move or a slight distraction, but a lack of expertise and perhaps, lack of mastery on what you are doing.
Disasters are there however to pull the best and the worst from people. You can either decide to deal with it showing your most vulnerable and irrational nature or the most determined and humble approach to realize what your potential is. Crying and freaking out won’t help at all, the damage is done and the best you can do is a forensic evaluation of each part of the resulting wreckage of this situation.
Failure scenarios are really good to enforce a positive spirit and realize what you must improve and what needs to be done to ease the situation. Likewise, tough times always make your skin thicker and with every crisis comes a more centered and rational gaze upon the next problem.

Things Can’t Get Worse

Actually, things can get worse if you decide to give up and freak out. On the other hand, nothing will be even worse when you recognize the problem and works hard to fix the failure, it is simple logic, you are in a bad situation and you are doing something to fix it. You will soon or later repair the damage and will also end up learning a lot of lessons, becoming a better and more experienced professional. And once you face a critical problem and solve it, you will most likely never face that ever again.

You can see crisis situations as an opportunity to transform your life in a fortress. Every time you handle big adversities, new resources and enforcements will integrate into your life to avoid new damages in the future. Through the years, you will be resilient and will be prepared for everything.
“if you pay heed you may learn a lesson from both good and bad”.
