But what’s tougher is creating a steady flow of opportunities to be won.
As we all know, life is all about perspective, rather than the result in isolation. It’s why the journey is often more satisfying than the prize.
It’s also why we should learn to focus on motivating ourselves by the things we can control (how we got the opportunity) rather than the things that are outside of our control (the end goal).
You can never fully control the outcome of an event but you can control what you put into it. Similarly, you can affect the way you got to the opportunity and how many more like it there are.
I prefer to focus on the things I can easily control. It’s more motivating and less anxiety inducing than thinking about the lack of progress on [insert end KPI goal here]
By aiming my focus on the quality of opportunity I source, I leave less to chance and find I am able to score more opportunities like it, which in the end helps me reach the KPI faster.
