7 THINGS EVERY SUCCESSFUL WOMAN DOES
Not just visual images but rather virtual, imagined scenarios. An ability to step back and visualise the ‘big picture’ of a plan, company, idea or strategy, is a skill which we should all work on. It holds huge power. Take time to just ‘think’ and ‘project’, you will soon see how that can help.
In order to see a clear vision of the ‘big picture’ you need to listen intently to those involved or anyone who has a vested interest. Reading between the lines and connecting to their side of things will give you far more insight and a much better base upon which to plan ahead. Be connected with their words at all times or you may miss something vital.
Learning to compartmentalise your thoughts and focus your attention is another skill behind every successful person. What is your priority at that time? Business, family? Whatever it is, BE PRESENT and devote your attention at the right times. Multi-tasking is one thing but ‘zoning’ your time is far more productive. Dilute thoughts lose their power, keep yours concentrated.
Like listening, talking with like-minded people or perhaps the opposite, someone who thinks very differently from you, is a great way to put pieces of your puzzle together. Other people’s thoughts and ideas will flow to you if you open up the chat channel to them. Never underestimate the power of a ‘face to face’ pow-wow or a random unplanned chat. It’s all valuable.
Failing, or as I like to call it ‘learning’ is the ONLY way to get to the top of your game. It’s through the picking up, rebuilding or re-planning your route that you gain the most valuable thing of all – EXPERIENCE. Experience is basically wisdom. Every fail is a stepping stone to success – celebrate them! Use them! Refer to them!
No high prize can be reached without taking a few risks. Faint heart never really won anything except faint rewards. Feel the fear, weigh it up and then do it anyway. Some of them will look better ‘on paper’ than others but if you feel the reward is worth the fall then 100% go for it.
Back to feeling again. Women, we have a superpower (in fact we have many) and that is INTUITION. Use it, it is your gift from above and when all plans fail and nothing is going right, your intuition comes into play and you need to trust it.
