When taking on more, feelings of “fight or flight” for many people will pummel initiation or destroy the learning process to the point of pulling them back to their comfort zone. This is where growing up fast occurs, either in growth and gain – or settling and pain – for what you have and where you are in life. There is no right or wrong, just a learning point of realizing what things are the most important to you in both your personal and business lives.
Statistics reveal that over 90 percent of people don’t execute on a particular goal they consistently think about – and it’s not always financial in nature. Why is this? Pushing yourself to do things much harder than you are accustomed to in your daily existence is sometimes unenjoyable, unless you hit them head on and expect the unexpected. When you embrace discomfort with learning and action, it will lead past second guessing and self-doubt. It’s what you call a consistent breakthrough to live with purpose at a higher level of growth.
Success begins and ends with you, so creating a guidance system through trial and error is crucial. Life can be demanding, but life is only truly demanding if you demand better from yourself and then you don’t take the steps needed to achieve what you want most.
If you don’t believe that you can achieve the unachievable, welcome to the club. Believing in yourself is purely a matter of research, role playing, planning, repetition, and practice. One step, goal, or win (or whatever other suitable word you choose) is just that – taking it in small doses to create what you want.
The question you must ask yourself is this: Are you a dreamer or a doer? Wasted time and frustration lay in the initial step to transition from self-doubt to ACTION at any and all cost. This is what you call buying the ticket to cross the bridge leading to change and freedom. If you don’t buy the ticket, then someone else will – and invariably you will be following their change instead of your own.
When you ask yourself whether you have control over a particular situation, is the answer yes or no? If the source of the problem is a boss, colleague, or customer that you cannot improve the relationship with despite your best positive efforts, then more than likely it is not about you. However, if you hear the same thing from other people about your own performance, then take a look at the situation and start taking notes on what is being said, while focusing on identifying a common theme that you can practice on to improve. The goal is to become a problem-solving expert in building up your coping skills, while continually identifying how to be true to yourself in the image you want to portray. The more you educate yourself on what you want out of your personal life and career, the more you will build your own creation of what you want most.
Life is imperfect, and so are people. The greatest truth you can learn is to be your authentic self, because that definition alone will withstand the test of time as you continue to grow and increase your probabilities of success through constantly facing and overcoming challenges. Turn “fight or flight” into “learn and grow”, and you will have the courage to stand alone while building value in both yourselves and others so that the “fight” part never occurs – only building the bridge to learning to fly together.
