Bouldness changes situations and it also creates situations! Call it bouldness or courage, fact is: courage offers new decision opportunities.
No, this blog-post is not about risk and craziness, combined with courage, when it comes to tough decision making in life. I have a different idea for you today –
Ask yourself: “how courageous am I when it comes to coincidence or luck?”
Well, honestly: it doesn´t take much courage to grab the coincidence once it appears, especially when you put the coincidence on your decision-board of all available choices! It´s so easy to be prepared for the great chance – which is pending with an open date, of course.
If you have the choice between A and B and you look for a third “C”-choice, place the coincidence to the available alternatives. Believe me, it´s not as easy as it sounds right now –
How could the ideal coincidence “look” like to fit well into your current decision scenario?
Think about it: what needs to happen that it suddenly clicks for you so your personal LUCK appears in front of you? Luck, which will shorten the time to reach something which seemed too far away or, Luck which increases a certain number you aimed at !?
Exactly, it´s about this Luck, wrapped as a coincidence I write about today. If you´re courageous enough, write down the short scenario of this coincidence (1-3 sentences) and put it as an alternative to your choices. THIS IS IMPORTANT !! Don´t just think about it. Take it out of your mind and make it visible for you. Be crisp and short.
Only the prepared spirit will recognize and grab the coincidence!
If you´re not prepared to meet the ideal coincidence, you might risk to pass-by the great coincidence in life – and that would be foolish, wouldn´t it? What a waste –
I think it takes some courage to put THE ideal coincidence among your desirable alternatives, onto the decision board. The better you are prepared, the faster and the more secure you are going to act when it comes to make the final decision for the next weeks or months! Do you agree?
Coincidence might cover the following:
— You lack information about something important which would take you onto the next level faster than A or B, and suddenly you read about it (WHERE could you get this information from?) –
— You know it takes months to finish or end something important and suddenly a company or new law/rule offers a criterion, product or device which speeds this process up (HOW should this law/product/device look and function like?) –
Get into the mode of thinking the coincidence well through and then write it down to make it visible.
Unfortunately I cannot guarantee it will happen to you, but mostly, it does happen (!) …. because you´re simply prepared and once you look for something for a long(er) time, you´ll grab it once it´s in front of you! You will not shy away from your personal chance — promised! 🙂
