I remember, reading “Tough times never last, but tough people do”. I felt it was the appropriate time for me to introspect on what does tough times mean to me?
I realized it is what I perceive because of our previous experience and patterns are:
That known options are few
The fear that we will not end with desired result.
Now, I realize that Time is constant but only our thoughts become tough because of the change in environment.
What do people do during these tough times?
Either they have the experience of handling the situation (e.g., defence) or prepare themselves to face it. Once we face the situation, we realize the requirement and come out with solutions. The new solutions will be for the change in environment and we can focus on drawing up a plan to come out of the situation.
When people face the tough times, they engage in positive belief and progressive thinking.
Now we believe that we are not in the same frame of mind and we are energized to move forward. Once we move forward the options vary, and most of the time we will end up achieving what we desired.
When everyone in the Organization seeks different options, which later will be converted to solutions for the customers, I am certain, we will grow this year to new heights!!
The IPDE prescription may help you in facing the situation now, if each one of us can adopt this.
- Identify the problem.
- Predict what the problem does to you, if you don’t do anything about it.
- Decide on your response from all options and alternatives.
- Then execute and act on the most positive option that you have.
