DECISION TO PERFORM: Once you stop thinking too much, success will follow
As for me, there were 7-8 turning points that seriously affected me, but one that got me to the core outshines all of those. I’ll tell you more about it in a bit, because it might teach you something I wish I had known. Actually I promise it’ll make a difference for you, as it did for me here at Harbour.Space University in Barcelona.
I’m not a man of quotes and motivational , poetic messages; but I do have a thing for Japanese literature and strategic way of thinking therefore I’ll quote Mr. Murakami by saying: “When you come out of a storm, you won't be the same person who walked in. That's what the storm is about.”
So, I’ve learned that as the time goes by and wiser I become, more I realize how little I know and how little is what really matters. Soon enough, anyway, it will all end, and you don’t get to take anything with you – but your true self.
Think that by now you realize I’m not a poet. Sorry can’t be helped, so bear with me.
As far as I can remember, I was always distracted by biblical questions like: “Who am I?”, “What’s my purpose?” or “Why am I here?”. Remember the day, exactly when I simply stopped this great search for even greater answers – started enjoying little things and simply experiencing life. Ironically that was the first day of the rest of my life.
I STOPPED OVERTHINKING and focused only on doing. My only mantra was: “I’ll do it now”.
I know and I see how many of you out there wasting who knows how much time seeking for answers to the most popular questions like: “How to succeed, 10 ways to reach happiness, how to get rich fast, how to get rid of stress…”
Oh I do understand you as I’ve been there and done almost all of that, but here’s the thing; one day you’ll glance back at your life and learn you’ve found the answers you searched for. But same as me, you’ll also realize that you didn’t find them by asking a lot of questions. Let me explain.
Everything that surrounds us is very basic and can’t be more simple than this: we learn by trial and error, by troubleshooting and born with survival instincts we experience things by making choices. We learn lesson from bad ones and build experience, skill sets and gain confidence from good ones. Trust me, there are no shortcuts to success and nothing good will ever come from waiting miracle to happen by itself.
I could find a several reason not to publish or recommend this post, but I will firmly state the following: Self-help books, seminars and life coaches will not provide the answers and the answers are not out there. There’s only one answer and the answer lies within yourself and it’s called: A DECISION TO PERFORM.
Entrepreneurs do not overthink, they simply make a decision and go with it whatever the outcome.
As a final note, carve this into your mind: always seek for new opportunities, don't hate your mistakes but learn from them, use your passion at all times, trust you'll do good, your mindset is awesome, never stop trying and always embrace challenges. Rules stated applies both to your personal and business side of life. And we’re teaching this here at Harbour.Space University.
The sky isn’t even a limit for those who understand the merging worlds of technological innovation and business entrepreneurship. Everyone who wants to harness the power of change, to make a good idea great in reality, can make an excellent start at Harbour.Space University, Barcelona.
