How to make decisions today and tomorrow facing so many unknowns

YOU Create it.  Think outside the box, step outside the box and make it happen.

EXPECT CHANGE and allow yourself to adopt and embrace:

Confidence

Harnesses

Achievable

Notions

Generating

Experts

Change, yes, change is inevitable and how we prepare for | respond to it determines the results.  Choosing, first and foremost, to make those results favorable and positive to you and those touched by the action / reaction.

There are many words / actions / perceptions from the words you can fill in for each letter in the word CHANGE but know that confidence will harness achievable notions until generating experts.  We are all experts; at what does not matter.

What does matter is that we release the expertise we have harnessed over the years.  The years change, attitudes, hope or hopelessness prevail.  You must choose which will serve you and those you love best.

I dare scream … choose to be confident, fulfilled by the challenge and grateful for the outcome… CSea

We have always know there are two sides to everything.  I’ll never forget hearing it from George Burns on stage in Las Vegas, there is a top to every bottom, a left side to every right side, an end to every beginning, etc. etc.  There was attitude in what and how he said it but everyone got the gist of his message.

Being proactive, aware of potential circumstances will effectively arm us with the knowledge to obviate / defeat the downside.

Embracing and Managing Change

A major KEY to controlling the energy around you.  I’ve supported the teachings of Gordon Hester since Brad Young turned me on to him.  Hoping this will empower you to take even more control of your life… CSea

As the old adage goes, the only constant in life is change. I know from experience how important managing change is when it comes to driving momentum.  Therefore, I wanted to share with you some strategies that might help you embrace and manage change in your life and in your business.  It is my opinion that as a society, we are in a time of great change.  Even things we take for granted will change in the future.  It is a critical time to pay attention to what is going on and to use “Awareness” as a means to making good decisions, planning, and problem solving.  If you are one of those people who tend to stick your head in the sand and take life as it comes, I can tell you that this strategy will likely produce a lot more consequences than benefits in the future.  With that being said, below are a couple simple strategies that can help you embrace and manage change in your business and in your life.

Strategy #1 – Be proactive in the management of change – To some extent, we all live our lives in either a proactive or reactive mode.  Proactive people tend to be thinkers.  They have awareness because they commit the time and energy necessary to analyze all aspects of their lives.  They create plans and implement strategies to fulfill those plans.  I have always believed that being “proactive” is a tenant of consistent momentum.  If you are one of those “reactive people”, it would be a good time to change that behavior.  While being impulsive and living in the moment can have value, those qualities cannot define your thinking.  The easiest way to make the change from reactive thinking to proactive thinking is to make “self communication time” part of your everyday life.  Self communication is the art of taking quiet time each day to think.  It is a critical part of a good DMO if you want to manage life vs. life managing you.  What do you do in this quiet time?  Think and ask questions.  Evaluate where your life is lacking momentum.  Examine where you are unhappy and failing to grow.  Drive the awareness process to a level where you can implement “activities and strategies” to change.  Remember, “Awareness” is the thinking component of momentum.  “Activity” is the component of momentum that turns thinking into positive results.

Strategy #2 – Examine how your beliefs are impacting your decisions – I find that most people do not understand the power of beliefs.  In essence they are the foundation of all actions.  Below is a graph that explains the belief process.  I think it will help you understand what beliefs are, how they are created, and how they impact life.


Let me explain the graph above.  We all live life.  In the context of living life, we make conclusions.  These conclusions become our beliefs.  We implement these beliefs by building rules and systems.  Our beliefs control our thoughts and actions.  Ultimately it is our belief that creates the good and bad results in our lives.

So let me explain how beliefs can impact change.  Suppose your belief is that your employer will always look out for you.  Because of that belief, you fail to understand the challenges facing your employer.  You believe the past will always be the same as the future so you will always have a great job.  You do nothing to increase your value to your employer or look to take control of your financial future by gaining skills or even starting a side business.  Because you lack the awareness of how a changing economic world will impact your employer (and ultimately your job), you fail to proactively make choices to secure control of your financial future.  What does this belief cause?  A reality that you won’t recognize the consequences of your belief until you suffer them.  While this is just one example, you have to understand that every belief creates benefits and consequences.  That is why it is so critical to examine them when analyzing change because they ultimately control your thinking.

Strategy #3 – Focus on what you can control – If you focus on what you can control, then you can create change.  Equally, if you focus on what is outside of your control, you will likely fuel fear.  Fear can even reach a point where it creates paralysis or your ability to do anything.  So what can you control?  You can control your choices.  You can control your attitude.  You can control your time.  You can control your financial decisions.  You can control the relationships in your life.  The simple truth is that if you want to use change to drive momentum, focus on the things that you control.  This is where you have to focus your energy.  As one of my mentors used to say, where energy flows, focus goes.  In the end, the “Awareness Component” of momentum has value when you focus on what you can control and what you can influence.

Strategy #4 – Remove yourself  from people and environments that are hurting your ability to create and advance momentum – I find a major reason why people cannot use change to create momentum is because they are held back due to being in the wrong environment, or they have the wrong relationships in their lives.  Your environment has a profound impact on your life.  You need to be part of an environment that fulfills your needs.  You need to be able to grow.  You need to be part of an environment that forces you to be more instead of allowing you to be less.  You need to be part of an environment that is focused on contributing to others.  You need an environment that is fun and rewarding to you.  Often to use change to drive momentum, all you have to do is change your environment.

As for relationships, I have found that they are a major component of all momentum.  Those who have momentum seem to have relationships that support their growth.  Equally, those who struggle to get momentum in life often have relationships that take from them vs. serve them.  Often just changing one relationship (or the nature of how that relationship operates) is a great way to create a positive change in your life.  I think one of the key questions you have to ask yourself if you really want to analyze any relationship is “does this person empower me to grow or hold me back in life?”  Remember, change is a part of relationships just like it is a part of other areas of your life.  You might find that changing a relationship is the easiest way to positively change your life.

There is much more I could share with you about embracing and managing change.  I challenge each of you to become a “proactive thinker”.  Learn how to make change your friend and use that process to make a better life for you and your family.  I have never seen a more important time in my life to pay attention to the world around us.  We are not only experiencing change at all levels of society, but major changes.  There are “paradigm shifts” going on that will impact your life.  For those that are aware of them and make the necessary changes, they will put the probabilities in their favor to survive and thrive in the future.  Don’t make the mistake of failing to use “change” to impact positive momentum in your business and in other areas of your life.
