Creating Success Amidst Crisis

November 15, 2023

The world is in a constant state of change. It’s the financial crisis, a fuel crisis, it’s Covid, it’s freak weather conditions, you are experiencing a constant state of flux in your dynamic, global home. You hear and read reports on a daily basis which seek to lead and control your responses through fear and it’s the same story every time you switch on the TV and immerse yourself in social media. So how can you take control of YOUR world, the world you experience internally, rise above the chaos and view your reality from the heights of self-generated success? I know that you have no direct control over the global environment and politics, you DO have control over HOW YOU respond to it.

If you are feeling challenged by your world and feel that creating success is an uphill journey, NLP is here for you. Below are some tips that you can adopt immediately and change the way you think and indeed, feel about the world that you currently reside in, inside and out.

If you can’t change something directly, change the way you think about it.

The easiest way to begin thinking differently is to change the language that you use, both in your self-talk and the language you choose to convey your thoughts outwardly. For example, using the word ‘crisis’ to describe the world economy creates a certain feeling. The standard definition of the word ‘crisis’ is, ‘A time of intense difficulty or danger’. When you hear that, you feel a certain way and the representations that you create in your mind are generally negative and unresourceful. One negative word automatically and unconsciously generates a disproportionately negative response. Here’s something to reflect on, if you had never been told that there was a crisis, would it exist?

The interesting element of the word ‘crisis’ is its root. The word comes from the Greek ‘krisis’ or ‘decision’. In 17th Century Middle English the word ‘crisis’ held the meaning of decision point. So, if we reframe the word ‘crisis’ and take it back to its root meaning, then we can consider a crisis as a time to make empowering decisions for change.

Adapt to your new environment and you will thrive.

Human beings are hard wired to be adaptable and flexible, that’s how we have survived and evolved to where we are now. You must respond to changes in your environment in order to continue to thrive and grow. By environment, I am referring to the economic world, your local environment, your social surroundings, your business situation as well as the physical environment as you understand it. No matter how much you wish for things to be back the way they were, change is a fact of your life and inevitable. How are you going to respond to it? With change comes wonderful opportunity, so engage your radar, be present in your world and proactively seek a new way of operating that fits your environment. Empower yourself to rise to the top of the natural selection tree. The first step? Look up from your devices!

I invite you to leave your reasons and excuses behind.

It’s so easy to hang all your challenges on the peg of a changing environment. Yes, it makes your life easy to hand responsibility to everyone and everything outside of you and it doesn’t get results. It might feel easy to take this position, it isn’t a comfortable position to take because you hand total control of your life to everyone else and everything else that is responsible for your situation. Take back your personal power! Once you accept that you are where you are in life as a combined result of your conscious and unconscious decisions and choices, then all the power returns to you. Each conscious and unconscious decision you make takes you down a specific path and on a particular journey, choose the path of greatest opportunity and be ready to face any challenges that path may present.

The only investment you can rely on is investment in yourself.

Flexibility and adaptability comes with personal development and growth. The only sure-fire investment with a guaranteed return is an investment in yourself. If you find yourself convincing yourself that you can’t afford to be trained or coached, then think again, can you afford not to grow, develop and adapt? Everything that used to work is no longer working, so you need to change your behaviour. To change your behaviour you must expand and enhance your capability and knowledge, generate new skills and embrace new thinking, it’s the only way to become the plant that grows strong and healthy in the desert.

Empowerment comes with belief.

If you believe you can then you will, if you believe you can’t then you won’t. It’s a simple statement that has been proven time and time again over millennia of human existence. What you believe to be true about your world doesn’t describe your world, it creates it. Your beliefs become self-fulfilling prophesies and so your reality is evolved out of your thinking.

The only way to get your desired results is to make them happen.

Waiting for things to change doesn’t work. How many times have you caught yourself thinking, ‘maybe one day I will be able to take the training, get the job I want, live where I want to live, have the car I’ve always dreamed of owning, be with the perfect partner’? or ‘I’ll do it next year’? All you are doing is finding reasons and excuses for not having what you want in your life right now. If you really want something, then there is always a way to make it happen, think creatively, find it and take action, it will pay off.

If you really want to get to grips with creating success in challenging times, then all you have to do is come along to our Enhanced NLP Coach Practitioner Certification Training and we will show you how, in a really easy and fun way that will leave you completely empowered and ready to succeed, no matter what your environment looks, sounds and feels like as you think about it now. If you can’t change something, change the way you think about it. We will show you how.
