Impatient people often get nothing done, as they keep changing what they are doing trying to get it quickly. Patient people get all they want. In this regard, I will always prefer a person with tenacity and patience than a clever one… If the person has all, even better.
It has become the norm that everything must be done instantly. As we all know, normally that seldom happens. Yes, we do want to do things quickly. Then again, just because we must try more than once, we have to drop it and try something else. Perseverance and patience are the key to get things done correctly and effectively. When we try it and we get a different result, it only means we found something and does not work the way we want. Try again using a different approach and keep going until you find what you want. How much do you want it? How far are you willing to go?
Amazing!!! Most people seem to have a fear of failure… The amazing thing here is: How are you going to learn new stuff if you are perfect? When we make a mistake, when we fail to achieve something, we learn, we develop our thinking muscle and start generating new ideas, new approaches, new processes, new… In short, we develop the muscle to innovate and to improve our life. Welcome the experiences when things went in a different direction than planned. These experiences will make you better.
Some businesses and people believe that older people lose the ability to change and adapt to innovation and latest technologies. This is true for some people of any age. The reality is that the limitation is about how willing people are to change, how willing they are to dream new ideas, to come up with novel solutions, fresh approaches, etc. In short, it is about how curious they are and how curious they stay. Curious people are the ones that come up with innovation and therefore, the most valuable assets any business can have… Regardless of the age.
We all have positive and negative tendencies in our behaviour. We can always achieve a lot more when we surround ourselves with people that will allow us to take advantage of our good tendencies and help us keep our negative tendencies in check. For this team to be effective and sustainable, all team members do the same with each other. • What are your strengths? • What are your negative tendencies? • Who are the people in your team?
The people behind all success stories were people looking for change and willing to change. Once they found it, they took it as an opportunity and they made use of it. What changes are you making to transform your opportunity into a reality?
