With all these strategies at work, you will never feel trapped, strapped, or at a loss for a more transformational way of being.
1. Know what you want. If your objective is unclear, then the process by which to achieve it becomes muddled. If this happens, your self confidence drops and your effectiveness can suffer. clearly identify your goals and keep them as your focus.
2. Sharpen and hone your skills. George Bernard Shaw once said in an interview with a fellow playwright, “I never met a student I didn’t like. I met once i couldn’t stand, but to know they are bettering their character impresses me to no end”. Never stop learning.
3. Creating something from nothing is incredibly inspiring. Not only to the creator, but to everyone who watches and observes. Dig deep within yourself and manifest the highest quality of inspiration you can muster.
4. Forget about the other players. Competitors, Adversaries, Opponents, Enemies are irrelevant to the relationship between you and your objective. Where they are and where you are is immaterial. All that matters is where you are and where you are going.
5. An old mantra of ancient martial arts and Zen Masters is, “Aim for the back of the head and settle for the nose.” Set your standards, your expectations, and demands placed upon yourself higher than you believe you can reasonably achieve.
