Do you want to be right, or do you want to win?
“Don’t say no, go with the flow”
What are you willing to do to win?
Is it important?
Why do you want to be right?
Is it important?
Chatting to a few friends this week, some rich, some poor, I noticed that they all had a burning desire to win, to achieve to “be successful”. The richer friends had a plan to fulfill their dreams, the less successful friends had dreams!
I also noticed that the more successful friends were quite flexible in the way in which they intended to achieve their goals. The end goal its self was also quite flexible – they knew that they were working towards their goals, but they were a lot more willing to compromise, edit and even scrap the goal completely and re define it if things strayed too far from their plan.
My less successful friends tended to try and prove that their decisions were right, that they could force positive change by proving that they were right!
A direct quote from a successful friend was;
” Wealth comes from experience, and the experience one wants is to know when to cut your losses and get out. Once out you need to study what went wrong so you don’t make that mistake again”
This is a very analytical approach to life , but it is very valid if one wants to initiate and maintain success!
Winning and wellness
Now, remember that success is not just about business and money…
We need to strive for success in the six key areas of our life to attain wellness.
These six areas are;
Family, Friends, Health, Work, Finance, Spirituality.
Take a moment to look at these areas of your life.
What do you want to achieve in each area?
- What is your plan of action?
- Is this plan working for you?
- Do you need to change it?
- What have you learnt from this experience?
