RE: What If Your Success Was 'Locked-In' At The Moment Of Decision, WHAT Would You Do? WHO Would You Be?

in #success8 months ago

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.

Awesome you understand the fundamentals of success, psychology, fear and mindset beautifully!

Often what looks like success or failure may be something entirely different to what the outside world perceives. I used to teach my Daughters that if they came last out of a class of 30 children at something at school how to be become better.

I would hear some parents giving the advice to "aim for first place", BUT I explained a completely different strategy to my girls. If today you were in 30th place, next time aim to be 29th, the following time 28th, always try and chip away at the things you want. The race does not need to be won today, tomorrow or even this week. It is a journey and I believe we should always look at our personal best and try and beat it, even by a little next time.

People often perceive competition where there is none, in the end the race is only ever really against yourself.

Thank YOU so very much for taking the time to engage in such an amazing way, it is truly appreciated :)

Thanks to you also for taking the time to read my comment and give me the feedback.

I think that advice you have given your daughters is one of the best you have given them. Patience is a virtue and for everything in life there is a process. And precisely, that competition that you speak, that rush to win the race is what makes us fall on the road.

Thanks again for sharing such an amazing article. I hope to read more from you.

Thankyou my friend. If we do fall in the road, being surrounded by a thoughtful, empowered and caring community getting back up again can be made all the more easy :)
