The key to making good in this or any other world economic condition - in ANY Market or Field - is the ability to do what must be done, when it must be done, whether you want to do it or not, with innovative creativity,  and with absolute concentration, focus, and willpower.  Nothing else will so definitively secure your future, separate you from the crowd, and elevate you above the fearful, troubling storms assaulting the mass of society.  To get that kind of personal power, you will need to analyze whether the comfortable way you've been operating is preventing you from fully expressing your potential.

A person who is comfortable where they are is destined by life to experience shocking pain, because Life is change, and being holed up in a comfort zone leaves one unprepared for the inevitable shifts that come.  This is what has happened over the past few years to many millions of people with the onset of a challenging world-wide economy (as well as your local economy):

  • Business owners were not personally prepared and ready to adjust their strategies early on.
  • Business Professionals were not personally prepared to tap into their creative and productive depths to help the Business Owners keep positions open and growing.
  • Managers were unprepared to crank up, direct, and promote the unlimited abilities of the people they are supposed to lead.
  • Employees were not prepared to leverage their talent and skills in a market shrinking because of failures happening far above their level on the ladder.
  • Now, students are being blindly, badly prepared by a mechanically operating educational system so that when they enter the marketplace they'll be subject to perpetuate and suffer the same sordid scenario.

Many Business Owners, executives, employees, and students are either already suffering the cost, or are worried about their future – and you may be among them.  Yet, every single person in the situation (including you) can do something for themselves to turn events to their advantage while at the same time adding value to whatever enterprise they are engaged in.

You as an individual must decide that being a helpless victim to circumstance is insufficient, that you shall no longer wait around for somebody to save you.  How are they going to save you when they are hoping somebody will fly in and rescue them from their own worries?  You must then set out to become the hero of our own life.

If you want to separate yourself from the cycle and never again have to worry over a sense of economic and personal security, you must train mentally to possess and efficiently exercise - as well as maximize - your own wellspring of personal power.

Personal power is mental power, and it is personal power that unlocks market competence and profit insight for the business owner, creative productivity for the business professional, leadership for the manager, highly-prized talent for the employee to leverage, and for the graduate entering the marketplace, it provides the discipline, focus, and willpower to convert their education into massive economic results over a lifetime.  Yet, this potential is not actualized through acquiring additional academic education, but through a rigorous, strategic cognitive training to unleash the full force of your will to succeed.

For the sake of yourself and those you care about, I hope you possess the wisdom and desire to break out of the mental choke-hold that comfort zones inflict.  If you are willing to set aside a consistent daily schedule of committed mental training in the same way a person would consistently exercise their physical body, then you can have unlimited personal power to do what must be done, when it needs to be done, whether you want to do it or not, with innovative creativity, and with absolute concentration, focus, and willpower.

The great philosopher and cognitive pioneer William James wrote,

"The great thing, then, in all education, is to make our nervous system our ally instead of our enemy.  For this we must make automatic and habitual, as early as possible, as many useful actions as we can . . . The more of the details of our daily life we can hand over to the effortless custody of automation, the more our higher powers of mind will be set free for their own proper work."

By training your mind so that your arsenal of mental habits contain unshakeable mental discipline, the power to concentrate, strong mental focus, and iron willpower, you can have the confidence, competence, inner strength and practical intelligence you need to create opportunity through bold, relentless action all day, all week, all month, and all year.  In this way, you annihilate the self-imprisoning chains of your comfort zones, and secure yourself a bright future that lights the way even in troubled times.

    Wisdom is the most important gain we must have to realize our own potential. Unfortunately, most of us are unwilling to give up our comfort zones, even if we rot with it. 🙂

      Too true! I consistently move out of my own comfort zone so that I can grow, while not always easily I feel it's paramount to my success.
