What happens when we are in desperate state?
Typically, when we are in desperate situation, we start looking for a solution, something that can help us to solve our immediate need or get us out of the situation that we may be in. During this desperate search, we begin exploring any and all possible solutions and options, something that we have not explored before. We are willing to take higher risks because there’s really no room to fail, the only way that we have is up, in search of success. Could we still fail? Of course, we can, and in many situation we do fail. However, because we are in desperate state already, we keep trying and searching to find the winning option to our roadblock.
Does every person succeeds in locating a winning solution?
No, and in many cases it is not due to lack of solution available, but it is usually due to one giving up too early and stop trying. That is why it is critical not to give up, regardless how difficult or unpromising the situation may be, but instead keep going forward, exploring all possible and previously ignored or unexplored options until the solution is found.
What’s in it for me?
What does usually work well when we are in a desperate state and can’t seem to find a solution to whichever critical problem or situation that we may be dealing with, is somehow, someway uncovering the strength, energy, and determination that we didn’t think that we had before. This is in turn encourages our mind to look for plans x, y, z versus already tried a, b, c…, to get out from the desperate situation that we may be in. In many cases we find the answers that we were seeking, and then look back questioning why we did not see this solution before. The answer is usually very simple, we got comfortable and stopped utilizing our critical thinking, resourcefulness, and relationships built over time.
Ask to understand
It is extremely important to always ask questions to understand where you are and what is happening around you in your business and/or situation, in order to remain in control of your future, keep driving the business forward, and not falling in the place of desperation.
However, if you are in a place of desperation now and are dealing with uncertainty, remember to stay positive, focus on the main goal, don’t give up and keep trying while searching for a solution until you come out victorious. You can accomplish anything that you set your mind to, the question is how hard are you willing to work for it?
