Living life, without conflict or doubt, requires awareness, planning, preparation, and effort. A Huge amount of effort!
Even with all of the awareness, planning, preparation, and effort you can muster, it will never be enough to eliminate conflict and doubt in your life.
The best we can ever hope for is reducing the risk and maybe skirting SOME of the conflicts and doubt that life dishes out in such great abundance. That’s right, even with all the conspiring in the world, conflict, and doubt is going to show up. It’s an inevitable part of life. When you least expect it ~ there it is.
So why not just wing it, and forget the planning and preparing thing?
Aiming For The Key Hole
Life is like taking a rifle and aiming for a key hole from 1,000 meters away. Even the best marksmen in the world can only hope to get close, and for the rest of us, we would be pleased if our shot landed in the same area code.
Instead of narrowly defining your dreams expand them. Paint life in your minds-eye with a broad brush. Steel yourself against conflict and doubt, be limber and develop resiliency.
World Class performers, prepare for conflict and doubt.
How can you prepare for conflict and doubt when you’re not sure what it’s going to look like or when it will show up? After all, it usually materializes with less than a moments notice.
Start by incorporating a strategy that is personality driven rather than motivated by a particular event. Develop a response that you can lean on whenever your bellybutton tells you conflict and doubt are in the hood. When you choose to react in a way that is congruent with your belief and personality, you’re way ahead of the game.
Knee jerk reactions can often find us acting out of misguided reasoning, centered around pleasing others. Or even worse, in pursuit of societies definition of success. Set your rules for the game of life, define your success, pursue your heart’s desire. Your rules are as individual and unique as your fingerprint.
Developing a personality driven response to conflict and doubt
Here are five common denominators. As in all good things, it goes nowhere without sustained effort and reasoning. Time for you to do the work.
1) Know what you want most,
What do you believe you are here to accomplish. Remember; it is not crazy if it matters to you.
2) See conflict and doubt as an opportunity,
Look for the diamond in the moment. It’s always there if you choose to see it. But you are only going to see it if you look critically and not emotionally.
3) Act quickly and congruently,
Be sincere, trustworthy, dependable and thorough. These traits define us and are the essence of a personality driven response.
4) Do the work,
Be prepared to understand YOU from the inside out. Take a chance and ask yourself, how do I make a difference? Then lean into it with all your might.
5) Reactions change,
When you deal with conflict and doubt from a personality driven perspective, change happens. Instead of feelings of anger and attack, things start to feel right. Dividends begin to accrue in all areas of your life, socially, intellectually, spiritually, physically and financially.
It’s time to awaken that sleeping giant within you and be all that you are meant to be. Being prepared is more than half way there.
