Dont panic or worry if you find a problem or something goes wrong, when something bad happens your immediate reaction is either to worry, be scared, panic or could even be to cry, but at that point you know something? You know that’s it it’s done, you can’t change it, at that point you have to switch to damage control, you go from problem to solution, and the speed you do that is critical to minimising the pain, that pain could be loosing money, a business, a partner, anything, you have to stop any impact on your family, you gotta take this on the chin and fix it that’s it, most of the time getting in to the mess your worrying about take effect and time, if you where willing to put the effort in then working to get out won’t be impossible, but what you don’t do is keep panicking! Because when you panic or worry after somethings happened, after they imminent shock or a problem you’r doing 2 things.
the first is your wasting time, this thing or problem has happened, we’ve established it cant be changed and you need to move forward, you need to switch on and start reversing it, or rectify the problem, damage control is important and it’s critical you start straight away to minimalise the fall out, it could mean moving money to stop a financial leak of funds, it could mean getting legal advise to minimalise a possible prosecution. It could mean rebuilding your life by changing or getting away. Either way the solution has to start straight away.
And the 2nd is simple! Worrying means you suffer twice, you’ve had the shock and you have the brusing from the problem. Prevention is better than cure so make steps to re-build and start again, but this time stronger and with that extra knowledge that this will never and I mean never happen again.
A simple smile has more power than you know!
Your attitude towards people throughout your day collectively shapes the world as we see it and you don’t even realise it! From the home with your family to the commute with total strangers each morning, to the work place, how you interact with each other subconsciously sets in motion how you and that person reacts to the next and the next, from just missing you train to someone taking your usual parking space!, the negative chain of events gets passed down the line affecting each person like nocking down dominos! But it also works in the opposite positive manner just as well, you get to the train to find someone holding the door for you so you don’t miss it, a smile and a thank you then sparks a conversation that opens the door to a more positive outcome when you that person interacts with the next person on your separate journeys throughout the day, they are more likely to pass on that positive vibe just as the negative one was pasted on before to the next social interaction and the difference was an act of kindness or expression as simple as holding a door or a negative selfish act or just pretending not to see them and not holding the door that sparked a chain of events on the next person on that path.
In business you sometimes have to be ruthless, cutting out dead wood! It’s part of the job and as a result makes you a professional and it’s part of the responsibility of leadership.
But you don’t have to be ruthless on a personal level out of the office or work place, that just makes you an arsehole.
But there are like in all areas! Exceptions to the rule, for instance! Cutting negativity out Of your life should be done clean and swift with the same level of ruthlessness as in business I except as well as expect that.
If someone is bringing you down, abusive or if they are emotionally blackmailing you or just always putting down everything and everyone around you? then they have to go and they have to go quick before it becomes routine for both of you.
The brain learns quickly, its built to pick up habits and trends so it can adapt, and to much of that negative attitude becomes infectious as your brain adapts to it and soon you will find yourself moving in that direction because your social situation makes it habit therefore your brain adapts.
Now if it’s a family member then you can’t just cut them out as easy, but you have to take steps to change the environment or remove yourself from the situation altogether, most people aren’t born negative they change and adapt to it due to there surroundings, environment or situation, a Positive implementation to help them change the course of there mindset is key, as just like negative vibes can change the brains paten into believing that’s the right path, positive vibes can start to reverse this effect by turning it back in the opposite direction, and fortunately the beauty of this process is the brain never stops learning and adopting so it can be done over time.
Your attitude is everything, it enters the room with you and shapes every conversation you have each day, it shapes your children’s attitude as they adapt super fast to there surroundings and your relationships or social interaction, it’s that powerful it can change the course of a life when teaching in both children and adults, everyone can remember that one teacher you loved, and its because they captivated you, held your attention in a way that made you want to listen and engage and most importantly learn, that’s the power you hold with your attitude.
Attitude is the platform to launch enthusiasm in the actions of yourself and others, it can make you feel good as well as bad, happy or sad, this is the key to changing mindsets and training your brain and the others around you to perform at the highest level for the most positive outcome.
Attitude towards helping people also brings a sense of euphoria, a feeling of achievement that you have the power to perform a small act of kindness to change someone’s day with something as little as a smile, now that’s true power.
So smile! because that’s where it starts, that’s were the power is and it’s in your hands, and with great power comes great responsibility, it’s your responsibility to help others, so go on smile! you might just change someone’s life!
£86,400 — Something To Think About!
Imagine that you had won the following prize in a contest: Each morning your bank would deposit £86,400.00 in your private account for your use.
However, this prize has rules, just as any game has certain rules.
The first set of rules: Everything that you didn’t spend during each day would be taken away from you.
You may not simply transfer money into some other account.
You may only spend it.
Each morning upon awakening, the bank opens your account with another £86,400.00 for that day.
The second set of rules: The bank can end the game without warning; at any time it can say, Its over, the game is over!
It can close the account and you will not receive a new one.
What would you personally do?
You would buy anything and everything you wanted, right?
Not only for yourself, but for all people you love, right?
Even for people you don’t know, because you couldn’t possibly spend it all on yourself, right?
You would try to spend every cent, and use it all, right?
ACTUALLY, this GAME is REALITY!
Each of us is in possession of such a magical bank.
We just can’t seem to see it.
The MAGICAL BANK is TIME!
Each morning we awaken to receive 86,400 seconds as a gift of life, and when we go to sleep at night, any remaining time is NOT credited to us.
What we haven’t lived up that day is forever lost.
Yesterday is forever gone.
Each morning the account is refilled, but the bank can dissolve your account at any time….WITHOUT WARNING.
SO, what will YOU do with your 86,400 seconds?
Aren’t they worth so much more than the same amount in pounds?
Think about that, and always think of this: Enjoy every second of your life, because time races by so much quicker than you think.
And it’s worth more than it’s equivalent in money.
Control Your Emotions or they will end up controling you! Or Worst of all they control your decision making, not just in a relationship but in business some of the best and brightestControl Your Emotions bussiness have gone under due to shitty decisions made in anger or a heightened emotional state.
Decision making or at least important decitions should never be made in either happiness or anger, decitions making that decides the direction of anything important should only be made with a clear head and an open mind based on facts.
Dections made in anger very rearly go well and in the large majority of situations end up costing you more than just money or time if your lucky, this is the worst time to make on the spot dections as there almost inevitably done in spite.
Also belive it or not making dections when your happy(Not just drunk but that goes without saying) can be a misstake! do not make a promise in happiness, your judgment is clouded and your more likely to over promise and under deliver.
Controling your emotions wile making decisions that impact your finances should not be taken lightly, these are not spare of the moment reactions, they should be based on facts and research from the outset, anyone tring to convince or manipulate you into make decitions in either state is someone to be very weary of as well a someone who always reacts in this way making decitions in an emotional state.
