No Plan B

No Plan B

It is perceived wisdom that it’s always a good idea to have a Plan B, just in case Plan A doesn’t work out. However, a Plan B can be counterproductive and can actually prevent you from achieving your goals. If you want to truly succeed, the best plan of all is to decisively focus on what you really want and then work towards getting it. Here’s how:

Make up your mind

Being stubborn is bad when it’s connected to pride but great when it’s connected to resolve! Make up your mind to be resolute, always focus on your wins and never give up working towards your goals. As Winston Churchill said, “Never give in – never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense.” Be purposeful and determined in your thinking and you will reap the rewards.

Be decisive

When it comes to decision-making, we can often have a false sense of certainty. We can make decisions in haste and then have to scramble to recover or we can be blinded by our short-term emotions and then have to deal with the long-term consequences. To take the right path, you must make well-informed decisions. Explore the options, do the homework and then decide on the best course of action. Remember: Never make permanent decisions based on temporary feelings!

Take action:

Your ability to earn and your ability to learn go hand in hand. Ask yourself: What are you listening to, reading and watching? Immerse yourself in personal growth and real estate professional development and you will keep growing, networking and synergizing. Taking action like this means you will attract likeminded people and become a winner…and winners always focus on winning!

We all experience difficulties and challenges, but if you want to win at relationships, business and life, you should always focus on your Plan A, not fall back on a Plan B. Listen to the latest episode of “The Brian Buffini Show” podcast to hear more.
