If at first you don’t succeed….

September 9, 2018

This is my first blog post for a while and what a while it has been!

I’ve seen a number of people appear in my life new and old and warm to my openness and I’ve had people create a tornado in my life and vanish in a blink of an eye but that’s ok I wish you well.

A lot of people are not lucky enough to see the real me, but a lot more than ever before have recently and those people stick around, not because they feel sorry for me it’s because they value me and what I bring to their lives. One of my new friends said to me recently “you’re the most grounded person I know and that’s refreshing” those are the types of people I like to have in my circle. That value me for me not because they want something from me.

Which brings me on to the purpose of this post.

If I’ve learnt anything this past year is you can’t ever expect everything to go the way you planned, if that’s work plans, investment plans, home purchases, relationships or the economy you name it, life rarely does what we expect. Curveballs are normal and that’s the one thing that’s certain in life. I am of the personality who refused to accept this at first but it’s a lesson very well worth learning.

It’s important to use those curveballs to reinvent, reinvest in yourself and recover from those setbacks. It’s easy to start from scratch after a little personal evaluation. I have used the following three things as a way of doing that.

1. Re evaluate

Sometimes curveballs happen for a reason, it’s the subconscious telling you that what you are doing right now might not be good for you in the future. Ask yourself these questions, is what I’m doing making me happy? Could I be more effective? Do I feel fulfilled?

2. Find a new solution

Is there a better more efficient way you could be doing things. I work in a job where efficiency means more productivity which then makes money. Is what you are doing in your life right now efficient and effective? Could you be doing it differently? Think outside your bubble and find a new solution.

3. Grow from your situation

Take action. The only people in the world who succeed are those that help themselves. Don’t give in to your situation. Work out how to improve. Set some goals, and a target of when to achieve them. It doesn’t have to be big. Work to move past your struggles you might enjoy it.

If at first you don’t succeed, try try again.
