Where are the opportunities?

Many people often ask where to find opportunities and when I point at some I get responses like “too much work”, “no worth it” and so on. The thing is, opportunities are about something that is raw and requires lots a work to develop into something great. If you can’t see the possibilities the opportunity has, then opportunities will always be out of reach. Opportunities are for those who are willing to dream, to see possibilities, to make it work and transform the opportunity into their dream. Opportunity is all about making all problems, barriers and obstacles a challenge to deal with and then conquer the challenge. In short, you will find the opportunities you are willing to work for.

Success is about…

Many people think that success comes to those people that have done great things. In a matter of speaking, this is true. Then again, it is a lot more than that. Success is about: Understanding what did not work, learn from it and what to try next. Doing one step at the time and continue until the outcome is achieved. Making a challenge to deal with out of every problem, obstacle, barrier found on the way to achievement. Self-belief, the belief that it can be done, the belief that if the plan does not work, then change the plan, while keeping the outcome, the purpose as your true north. Loving what you do, have a personal pride to achieve it. Your own ability to learn, to change and adapt to overcome each challenge. The journey to achieve the outcome, instead of the outcome. In short, success is all about your mindset and your ongoing approach to all you do in life.

Cleverness vs Tenacity & Patience

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.

The lost art of persistence and patience

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?

How failure is better than perfection

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.

The Good and the Bad in Each One of Us

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?
