RE: What If Your Success Was 'Locked-In' At The Moment Of Decision, WHAT Would You Do? WHO Would You Be?
Hello @stevenwood and welcome to this great community called Project.Hope. I'm glad that despite being a community focused on financial and technological issues we see some of this around here. Since the theme of success, correct and correct decisions, together with emotions, are a fundamental pillar for investments and finances.
I am trained in a career (trader) where this topic is perhaps the most important, even more important than knowing how to read the market. The psychology of the operator. This world has also taught me that success is also a state of mind. It is a way to make yourself feel. But that as you say, not everyone has managed to generate this state in their minds.
For me, success is not a question of fortune, but it is directly focused on the fact of a way of doing things. Someone successful knows what they are doing and why they are doing it. It is like a good photographer, in his painting nothing is out of place, everything that the image shows is there because he has decided. And when we begin to know why we are deciding, why we do what we do and when we do it, it is when our mechanism of success is working for us in an effective way.
I think that something that is fundamental in this, is our intuition, many leave out this great tool for success, if we look for success, unconsciously our inner voice will look for the same for you. Feeding this voice in a proper way can help us make decisions that we might not be able to see because of our own fear. Because the fear of success is born from not trusting ourselves, from not believing in what we really know and what we can do.
Despite these being strong points, I don't think that for success it is all to think positively and that's it. In order to build a successful path, there must also be discipline, commitment, the will and the enthusiasm of not failing. Success puts us tests and it is up to us to know how to take these and pass them effectively.
I really liked your article, again I welcome you to the community and I hope we can continue to read more of you soon.
