An AAAA + attitude to get out of the crisis

On one occasion a grandfather told his grandson: Within each of us live two beings faced in a constant battle, one loves defeatism, likes to be the victim of everything, is a cowardly spirit, invests the time to solve in blaming others for their own failures, feels insane envy and hatred for anyone who manages to advance more than he and the result of the effort of others calls it ‘have luck’. The other is positive-minded, he invests his time in the search for solutions instead of sanctifying the problem, he knows that he can be a victim of circumstances but that does not stop him, he likes to be part of the solutions and enjoys the little things no value that, united, others call success. The grandson thought for a moment in the words of his grandfather and said: Then, Which of the two wins the battle? To which the grandfather answered: The one that you decide to keep nourished with your thoughts and your words.

We are what we think and act as we think. Consequently, socially and as a community, we are the sum of those individual united thoughts that, by way of a great active mind, converts the whole of society into the consequence of their own way of thinking. This is what Neuromarketing is based on, also called the mind of the market. As in the advice that the wise grandfather taught his son, society as a whole also ends up seeing the internal being that they decide to feed grow and win.

The components of a society have individual thoughts as varied as the number of components that form it. Therefore, in the face of a global problem that we call crisis and that affects us all, it is very important to have an adequate individual thought to arrive at a favorable solution, because the social interaction of thought exists even though it is denied by many, in the same way that blood circulation existed before being discovered by Miguel Servet, who by the way burned alive in 1553 for such audacity in the midst of a society that did not consider itself stupid, but rather the opposite.

To begin to solve our problems and be able to advance towards success we will need to readjust our minds as much as those societies that did not believe in blood circulation and had to end up believing by force. While they believed or not, blood circulated anyway because being believed mattered little and was foreign to all discussions. We as a society are going to need to radically change our way of thinking, because the society we suffer has been generated by our own thinking, considering that everything is measured in euros. The philosophy of ‘for what they pay me, I’m not going to try harder’, or ‘let’s talk about the price that the rest does not matter to me’, that of ’employees are just numbers’, etc. It has reached its end, although we do not want to see it. As individuals we must begin to offer to others what we claim for ourselves for something so simple, and yet so complex, as is the interaction of society. Because if the egoistic culture of only going to ours remains alive, we will always have our entire human environment making our existence bitter because they only go to their own, whereas if we all start doing things thinking about others, we will have the majority of society benefiting others as part of their environment. Discipline and consideration do not have to be at odds with individual freedom, the search for success must not be incompatible with having and cultivating values ​​of coexistence. Because if the egoistic culture of only going to ours remains alive, we will always have our entire human environment making our existence bitter because they only go to their own, whereas if we all start doing things thinking about others, we will have the majority of society benefiting others as part of their environment. Discipline and consideration do not have to be at odds with individual freedom, the search for success must not be incompatible with having and cultivating values ​​of coexistence. Because if the egoistic culture of only going to ours remains alive, we will always have our entire human environment making our existence bitter because they only go to their own, whereas if we all start doing things thinking about others, we will have the majority of society benefiting others as part of their environment. Discipline and consideration do not have to be at odds with individual freedom, the search for success must not be incompatible with having and cultivating values ​​of coexistence.

Protesting and complaining is easy, but the leaders are not those who offer a speech of complaint but those who leave positive marks in the middle of a time in which each day is in itself a challenge. That’s why in your life, in your work, in your company, think about what others need and offer generously and others will come to you without calling them.

Personally, my method is to use the AAAA + note to face the problems. The AAAA + rating for me consists of:

Analyze : Analyze the complete circumstance, without biases and analyze well. A good strategist does not lose perspective. Situations are rarely absolute and are almost always relative. Analyze from different angles.

To accept: Accept the results and the situation from the reality, regardless of whether you like it or not. The results are the mirror of the situation and should not be treated as an accusation.

Adapt : The new situation forces you to adapt, the natural evolution is adaptation. Trying to find solutions in a situation that only exists in memory (even if it is immediate) is as absurd as finding solutions so that dinosaurs do not become extinct.

Act : With a situation well analyzed (without self-deception), accepted and which we have adapted, we can only act. Take action, start a new journey even if we are looking for the same goal, in the same way that a cut road should not change our destiny, just modify our route to it.

+: Being positive has little to do with the recurring example of the half empty or half full bottle, the bottle is in half and the rest are perceptions. Being positive is more related to knowing how to find the advantages in the midst of disadvantages while being aware of the environment itself.

And now, going back to the illustration of the grandfather and his grandson: to what inner being do you feed with your thoughts, conversations and words? Remember, we are the consequence of what we think.
