    Beyond Positive Thinking 

    “The solution isn’t to do away with dreaming and positive thinking. Rather, it’s making the most of our fantasies by brushing them up against the very thing most of us are taught to ignore or diminish: the obstacles that stand in our way.”

    Persistence! 

    What you resist persists. — Carl Jung

    Persistence is an essential factor in the procedure of transmuting desire into its monetary equivalent. — Napoleon Hill

    Persistence is essential to accomplish anything. How can you succeed if you quit?
    You can’t. But what does it mean to persist? The quotes give us two options, two
    ways to respond to obstacles or challenges, and two outcomes.

    Suppose you are unhappy with the way your life is. You want to have more fun, make more money, do more things. Maybe you want to move into a nicer house or drive a
    better car. Or perhaps you are looking for a more fulfilling relationship or a business that supports you in greater style.

    When you have a strong desire and things don’t seem to be going your way–maybe
    your mortgage company won’t let you borrow enough money to buy your dream house,
    or you have a big failure or reversal in your business fortunes, take a big loss in the stock
    market–when those kinds of unexpected events happen you have two choices.

    You can get angry and resentful. You can scream and stamp your feet like a little kid.
    Or you can say “that’s interesting,” trusting that all is right with the Universe and there is
    something better, different or unexpected in store for you. Then you tweak your organised plan and keep moving.

    If you make the first choice, if you get angry and upset you are in resistance. Your insistence on being angry and acting out is a negative form of persistence that keeps you
    stuck. When you persist in being negative your actions and attitude generate more
    of the same. What you put out comes right back at you making you even more stuck
    and isolating you in a small dark corner of your life until you finally give up in despair.

    If instead, you accept what is happening with faith, without resistance, you are bowing to the greater wisdom of the Universe. You are acknowledging that there is something better out there, something more in synch with who and what you are. This open,
    positive attitude allows you to better evaluate your situation with clarity allowing for good decision making going forward. This, in turn, gives you the energy and strength to
    persist in achieving your long-term goals despite temporary setbacks. You may even
    get a better idea of how to proceed in light of what happened moving you forward even
    faster.

    Of course, part of this process is being actively grateful for whatever comes your way.
    A daily gratitude practice actually changes the molecular structure of your brain making
    away for more happiness and the kind of positive attitude that lets you succeed in spite
    of the inevitable obstacles and challenges.

    Persistence is essential. We need only choose to persist with gratitude in what moves
    us forward rather than in the negativity that keeps us stuck.

    The Four Stages Of​ Learning a​ New Skill! 

    1. Stage 1 – Unconsciously unskilled. We don’t know what we don’t know. We are inept and unaware of it.
    2. Stage 2 – Consciously unskilled. We know what we don’t know. We start to learn at this level when sudden awareness of how poorly we do something shows us how much we need to learn.
    3. Stage 3 – Consciously skilled. Trying the skill out, experimenting, practising. We now know how to do the skill the right way, but need to think and work hard to do it.
    4. Stage 4 – Unconsciously skilled. If we continue to practice and apply the new skills, eventually we arrive at a stage where they become easier, and given time, even natural.

    Learning a New Skill is Easier Said Than Done! 

    Before rolling out specific training or initiatives that are aimed at improving some facet of your business, you need to ensure that your leaders and team members are equipped with fundamental communication and relationship management skills.

    Numerous studies have verified that cooperation, communication, interpersonal skills, listening and summarizing skills are critical to higher-order team success. In their book, The Leadership Challenge, Kouzes and Posner write, “Every leader ought to know how to paraphrase, summarize, express feelings, disclose personal information, admit mistakes, respond non-defensively, ask for clarification, solicit different views, and so on.”

    Where do you stand?
