I have often wondered why some people are successful and perform better than others? Have you ever considered why some individuals refuse to lose, are hard to beat and others are not? Well, if a person wants to stay emotionally healthy during their life, one must create and execute a strategy that is good and sound.
The most successful people create stability for years or generations because their strategy is tightly tied to their vision. A strategy can be defined as a long-term plan that you create to reach the desired, future outcome you envision. This includes your goals and objectives and the type of life that you desire to build.
“Thousands of great ideas cannot make you successful, but better execution of just one idea can change your life.” – Nitin Namdeo
Whether for your life, finances, or business, a strategy is most effective when all the assumptions made at the time of inception have been validated and tested for accuracy. Can you validate the decisions you've made with clear facts and evidence? It is important to ensure that your strategy aligns with the objectives for your life, the type of person that you desire to be in the Earth, and the environment in which you plan to thrive. You are not your environment. You are not your past. You are the person you desire to create in this present moment and moving forward. You have the power to reframe your future!
A great strategy will help you make good life investments and decisions. A sound strategy helps to provide guidance on prioritization, allocate and optimize resources available to you, and generate above-average returns on goals you decide to wisely invest in for your future self.
“Strategy execution is all about realizing the full potential of your strategy– and not limiting yourself to only 50, 60 or 70 percent.” - JDF
3 Tips to Consider When Developing Good Strategies
1. Clear, long-term objectives: Prepare a strategic plan that is long-term and realistic. What type of life would you like to build? What will you sacrifice and invest to get to your desired future state?
2. Risks and failures: Factor risks into your plan and allow yourself to accept some failures. Use insights gained from successes and failures to improve your future. An attempt is never really a failure but there is always an opportunity.
3. Opportunity: Analyze what opportunity exists right now, in the future and how those opportunities may evolve. Always gather data and facts associated with your strategic goals before finalizing any decisions.
