It is Okay to Change your Mind

It is Okay to Change your Mind
By Jill Black

Have you ever been in a situation where you wanted something to turn out in a certain way and no matter how hard you tried things just continued to get worse.

If you are like most people you will have experienced times when the results you wanted from a particular situation remained elusive no matter how hard you tried to get it to work.

Why do we keep hoping that things will work out even when the results of our efforts are telling a different story.

Somewhere inside of us we have this notion that if only we try hard enough, long enough, this "thing" will work out exactly as pictured in the mind. So we repeat the pattern of the day before, and the day before that, hoping that this time the result will somehow be different.

One of the reasons I have found for this is that when something is important to us, and we have invested a lot of emotion into getting it, we find it hard to accept the fact that we may indeed be wrong in our thinking and approach and so shut our brain down from other possibilities. We have a need to be right - after all we had the idea so it must be good because it feels so right.

After a while our thinking ability becomes so rigid that flexibility to develop new and better ways becomes lost until the time when we finally declare to ourselves "I have had enough". This then allows us the opportunity to think and see things in a new light.

This can happen in business, in relationships and in any area of our lives. Quite often it is happening in simultaneous areas at the one time.

To break the cycle we need to train the brain to focus on the results of our actions - what we are getting back from the actions we do take. If something is obviously not working then it is time to be flexible in our approach and keep changing until you find a way to make it work. Often be doing this a completely new and better solution appears than our original vision of what we wanted to accomplish.

Take the time to notice the results of your actions. If they are not working then change them until they do work. Be Flexible. And as Winston Churchill once said "Never, never, never, never give up!".
