Probably everyone in business has had those days…the ones that you hope will just come to a close before anything else can go wrong. For anyone in a business environment you could be moments away from an episode of chaos. You never know when it may hit. And without any warning you have to pull yourself together and handle the situation in the best manner possible. It’s not easy but those that can find the secret in doing this will experience much more success and internal peace than those who cannot.
In those moments try these 3 tips for bringing yourself back away from the edge of that cliff.
1. Remind yourself of what really matters. There are only a few really truly important pieces and parts in your life. Don’t allow the bumps in the day to keep you from focusing on that.
2. Don’t allow your CNO (Chief Negativity Officer) to focus on the worst case scenario. What’s that saying…90% of what we worry about never takes place. However with the way we allow our minds to spiral out of control you would think they have already happened.
3. Take a moment to realign your brain. If you have to walk away from a situation or an issue it will probably serve you well. Allow yourself a moment to calm down and get back to a calmer state of mind. This will do wonders for the next decisions you make which can keep the original situation from going bad to worse.
