Life is full of its ups and downs. That’s what makes life interesting. The professional life is full of its ups and downs too and it is that down moment that is the inevitable dilemma of the upcoming professional.
In the Paid Professional blog today, we will talk about a situation that faces many today. It is that stage of development when you are striving for perfection in your career. This inevitable dilemma faced by many always shows up and it is your power of choice that sees you through it.
What is this inevitable dilemma?
Do you know what happens at that moment when you feel like giving up, when you feel confused, and you don’t know what to do? It is that moment in your professional career where it seems to be so confusing and you don’t know if growth is taking place.
It is a trend common to every person who is learning a new skill or taking up a new professional career or who is trying to advance in life. At that moment in your career, it seems as if you are on a plateau and you are at a crossroads of decision making. But you need not give up. That period is a period of great change.
The moments of negative vibes
That period of negative vibe is what is known as cognitive dissonance and it is really a period of open source when infinite possibilities are available. This period is an inevitable dilemma and most people go through it. Do you know that moments of breakthrough is always proceeded by moments of confusion and uncertainty?
Consider the lives of the geniuses and the creative individuals, when they find themselves at the lowest ebb, that is usually when their creative juices flow the more. At that moment when they feel like giving up, that is usually when the idea always pops up. This is called the aha moment. It is a moment of decision making.
Embrace those moments of blankness as opportunities for discovery. The moment when you thought nothing could work, when you think you don’t know what you should do, that is when you should be more focused on your goal. If you hold on a little longer, and you do something, it will lead you to a new place.
Have a positive mindset
If you open your heart you will see that the whole Universe is speaking to you. That’s how transformations occur.
Great things happen when you take the little steps of faith suggested to you at that moment of chaos. This moment of this inevitable dilemma we have been talking about is actually a moment of decision making.
A particularly difficult situation that repeats itself is only an opportunity for you to rise above it. You need to make a choice to rise.
If you find yourself being faced with the same situations and the same problems appear, it only means there is something you need to learn about the problem, and there is something you need to do about it.
When you get to the point where you can say “I have seen this problem before” and you quickly identify it, you can easily solve it. At that moment it ceases to be a problem again. This is because you have seen a way around it and not make the same mistake again you made in the past.
A response that says “oh not again” and you fall into a state of depression is a negative response. It means you have not grown beyond the problem. A better response is to acknowledge that you have seen this problem before and face it knowing that you will overcome it.
Every successful professional knows that every current struggle is only a period to learn lessons and the struggle is only a blessing in disguise. He knows that the past challenges which he overcame brought him to the place of success he is at today.
If you can solve a problem today, you will not remain the same tomorrow. Solving problems is done by making smart decisions. Smart decisions are made by learning from your experiences.
Life is all about overcoming little challenges that show up every day, that is what success is all about.
It’s the little changes that change things in your life. That is what matters.
