Inspired Through Solutions

For some motivation is an innate sense of being. A fire that continually burns through unquestioned self belief, inspiration or the unrelenting focus on achievement. They focus on the positive and see the negatives as lessons learnt. Obstacle are seen as a challenges, the emotion of fear is wasted energy and procrastination as a cost on the inevitable. They focus on the solution as this will provide the answer to move forward and advance ever closer to their goal. For some, self motivation comes naturally but for others it takes practice, reminding and focus.

For many what inspires us is progress. When we can see the benefits of our labors through achievement, it motivates us to continue to strive. By us continuing to strive for achievement we will continue to be motivated.

What many struggle with is the self discipline to continue the fight when we are faced with obstacles that may slow or hinder our progress. Obstacles are only as large as we sometimes perceive them to be. There are answers to every problem, sometimes many answers, but it is the focus on the solution that creates the opportunity for progress.

It is the ability to train your mindset to see everything as an opportunity and the ability for advancement that will inspire you to be self motivated. Always seek the solution and never allow yourself to be burdened with the continual thought of the problem.

This does not mean to ignore the problem , but to source the root of the problem and solve it. Create operational or strategic changes that inhibit the problem from re arising and continue to move forward.

"The problem is a by product of the past, the solution is the answer to progress".

Personal and Business Growth - Relationship for Success

Many business owners who struggle to expand or maintain growth in their business see market forces, demand or external conditions affecting their performance. What they fail to see is the most crucial factor to success in business - Adapting to change.
The market, technology and instruments of business are ever changing. Refer back to even ten years ago how businesses and the market operated and compare it to today.  We have seen revolutionary changes in business and market strategy in only the last five years and this continues ever frequent as innovation continues to flourish.
Technology has been a integral part of this revolution. The internet, social media, mobile technology, communications, cloud storage and many more innovations have provided an opportunity for us to work smarter and more effective.
Technology has opened opportunities that was once thought to be only accessible to the financially affluent. Information, ideas, tools and expert advice are freely provided through online social platforms allowing the opportunity for better informed decision making, strategy and operations.
What many business owners fail to do is adapt to this opportunity and change as it challenges their comfort zone. "For a business to grow and flourish, we as individuals must grow with it". We must be open and willing to accept new ideas and view it as a necessary process for success.
We must continually challenge and expand our comfort zone by allowing ourselves to adapt to change. It should be viewed as a goal to expand and grow as an individual, as science fiction becomes a reality.

We need to clarify is the definition of competence in the training sector.

I think what we need to clarify the definition of competence in the training sector. What level of competence are we gauging? Does knowledge and theory with minimal practical experience deem you competent in your chosen course?
Are we overstating the obvious that competence comes with experience over time (12 -18 months), with repetition. What we deem competent in the training world is theory based competence. I feel we tend to over dramatise the term competence by overstating its definition.
