Failing is not final. It feels very final at the moment, but almost every great success perseveres through incredible failures. The most difficult thing to do when we fail is to maintain neutral. The real, faith filled neutrality that requires deep belief and confidence. Enabling this type of thinking can change the way you feel and the way others perceive you. Find a silver lining in despair and everyone (including you) will notice. Keep a level head at your highest moments and achieve even greater things.
Businesses rely on fact based decisions with underlying supportive data. Business changes and people react, those who react emotionally often get left behind. You should strive to be realistic but don’t be too negative or positive. Default to a positive mindset if neutrality is not possible. Remember your why and strive to be consistent with your approach.
Grow Toward Your Goal. The intent is to continue pursuing neutral thinking. Silver linings can be found in nearly every opportunity. Actively look for possible takeaways rather than focusing on the struggles or downsides. Do not ignore negative moments but spin them to your advantage. An objective emotion free response in business will assist with better decision making.
Never be afraid to lean on your support to assist with fighting negativity. If you don’t have a support group, this site can be that group. The primary objective of the site is to provide business/finance advice, but all business requires relationships. Keep working at staying neutral, it will pay dividends.
If you are interested in learning more on this topic, check out It Takes What It Takes: How to Think Neutrally and Gain Control of Your Life by Trevor Moawad. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
Trevor Moawad created the concept of neutral thinking and I could not agree more with his sentiments. The writing above is based on his concept with my thoughts around the topic.
