Change is the only stable thing we can be sure about. Doesn’t matter what and where we are currently, we are always certain about the factor “Change” And when it comes to talk about business keep updating it with the current strategies is became one of those most important facts which we need to keep in mind while developing our strategies.
Why change in strategies is required: I would like to refer a story from Bible:
“ One day, there was a blind man sitting on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet and a sign that read: “I am blind, please help.”
A creative publicist was walking by and stopped to observe. He saw that the blind man had only a few coins in his hat. He dropped in more coins and, without asking for permission, took the sign and rewrote it.
He returned the sign to the blind man and left. That afternoon the publicist returned to the blind man and noticed that his hat was full of bills and coins.
The blind man recognized his footsteps and asked if it was he who had rewritten his sign and wanted to know what he had written on it.
The publicist responded: “Nothing that was not true. I just wrote the message a little differently.” He smiled and went on his way.
The new sign read: “Today is Spring and I cannot see it.”
Sometimes we need to change our strategy. If we always do what we’ve always done, we’ll always get what we’ve always gotten. And remember too, sometimes it’s not what we say, it’s how we say it! “
Story itself shows the potential impact of strategic change..
Yes we need to keep updating our business strategies to improve efficiency, productivity, and ultimately, profitability.
I recently read about the update of Apple’s strategic change :
Does it mean they are doing poor, so changed it?
Does it mean I should completely replace my business strategies with a new one, the one looks beautiful to me?
A saying of Winston Churchill answer it: ” However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results.”
Yes, my friend..RESULTS we work for results..
To change your strategy, model the best. Work backwards from what works. As Tony Robbins would say, “success leaves clues.” If you start from scratch, you’re doing it wrong. Leverage the lessons from the school of hard knocks that others have already figured out for you. This saves you time, and it helps you find paths and approaches that actually work.
“I’ve spent the past 38 years relentlessly focusing on finding strategies and tools to immediately change the quality of people’s lives. I’ve been successful and impacted over 50 million people in 100 countries because I’m obsessed with finding simple strategies that quickly lead to breakthroughs–breakthroughs in relationships, in finances, in careers, in growing businesses, in mind, body, and soul.
I’ve always believed the best way to get a result, the fastest way, is to find someone who has already accomplished what you’re after, and model his or her behaviour. If you know someone who used to be overweight but has kept himself fit and healthy for a decade, model that person! You have a friend who used to be miserable in her relationship and now is passionate and in love for ten years going? Model her. You meet someone who started with nothing and has developed wealth and sustained it through time? Learn from those strategies! These people aren’t lucky. They’re simply doing something different than you are this area of life.”
“I’ve spent my entire life as a human of hunter excellence. So to find a strategy that works, you go to the best; those who have proven results for the long term. And if you follow their strategies–if you sow the same seeds, then you’ll reap the same rewards. This is the essence of what I mean when I say, ‘Success leaves clues.’”
“The other thing the right strategy can do is save you the most valuable resource of all: time. If you start with a proven plan, the right strategy, you can literally convert decades of struggle into days of achievement. You can avoid the inevitable frustration that comes with learning something for the first time by trial and error. Instead, you can get results in days, instead of years, by learning from people who have achieved success already. Why reinvent the wheel?”
So, does changing the strategy once is enough?
Change in you’re a strategy might fortunate for you or maybe not, because it’s possible you have the wrong strategy, or you have a limiting story that prevents you from taking action.
“Why not? There are two key challenges to thinking that strategy alone can change your life. First, too often people have the wrong strategy, which inevitably ends in disappointment. You’re trying to lose weight by eating 500 calories a day–which, of course, isn’t sustainable. Or you’re sure you’re going to get rich off one hot stock–highly unlikely.”
“Where do most people go to learn strategy? Where do we look for advice and guidance? Too often from someone who isn’t successful in the very area we want to improve! How often do people get relationship advice from friends who are in lousy relationships themselves? Or fitness advice from a friend who struggles with his weight, too? How many people hear the message reinforced that they can’t change their body? Why that message? Because they’re surrounded by friends for family who aren’t fit. The same is true for financial advice. Looking to someone who has not developed real wealth is a recipe for disaster. It simply reinforces the belief that nothing will work. It’s not that nothing will work–it’s that these strategies won’t work.”
Now you just need to start making your positive story..where “You CAN”…
You can climb “Mount Everest” …You can be a IT giant..You can write your book ….you can be a great dancer..You can be a great singer… You can be a billionaire…Yes the KEY is “YOU CAN”….It starts from YOU…Yourself
You are not doing this thing to be the next “Walt Disney”, “Bill Gates”, “Steve Jobs” or “Mark Zuckerberg” You are doing this to be one YOU…so as you are writing your own story , your own view matters most:
“So what’s the real problem? The answer is: we have to bring in the human factor. I always say that 80% of success in life is psychology and 20% is mechanics. How else do you explain how someone can know what he needs to do, wants to do it, has the right strategy to get it done, and still not take action? To solve this riddle, we have to delve into the psychology of individuals: the values, beliefs, and emotions that drive us.”
If you want to change your life, you have to change your strategy, you have to change your story for your own and this will change your body, mind, state and the change you are looking for..
