What Does it Take to Succeed? | Adversity Management
By Robyn Benincasa
Four training steps to succeed in adversity management personally and professionally.
- Train your brain to be Ruled by the Hope of Success versus the Fear of Failure. Observe your inner thoughts: are you thinking about what it takes to "not lose" or what it takes to "succeed"? Focusing on what it takes to succeed versus not lose creates great innovation, a positive attitude, and more definitive results.
- Take one setback you've had in your life and write down 3 ways you can use that setback as a springboard forward--for yourself or for someone else. It's Not About the Setback, it's About the Comeback! How can you use that setback to take it up a notch and do something great? Do it!
- Think of a change in your business/life that has been dominating your thoughts. Write down 2 positive and/or proactive things you can do today to rise to the challenge (or help a teammate through it), and write down 2 ways that your business/life is going to be better on the other side of that change. "Change is the only thing that stays the same. It's how we respond to those changes that dictates our long term success" ~Chief Alan Brunacini
- Don't let the perfectionist in you hinder progress this week/month! Do one thing each day/week that you've been putting off because you don't have the time to do it right. :). It doesn't have to be perfect. It just has to be done.
