Your business perception goes a long way to determining your success or business failure. Here is an analogy to buttress my point. In the olden days, sailors feared to venture far into the distant ocean because they thought the earth was flat as a table. They thought that when they reach the edge of the earth, they would slip down and perish in the bottomless ocean. We know today that this is not true.
It was obvious that the wrong perception creates fear in them and bar them from venturing into new places that could have helped their career to be more successful. The interesting thing about the story is the fact that we hardly ever get all the information and we still make up our minds based on our perception to an issue.
So what is perception? It is a particular way of thinking about something which is determined by our exposure, experience and how we weigh issues objectively. Now we can see that perception is just a particular way of thinking about something.
Whether in business or another aspect of our lives, we have a natural tendency to fill in the missing information with seeming probable explanations. So in essence, what we are doing is creating a story about why something happened.
Whatever you are experiencing in your businesses, you only need a small shift in perception to make huge changes. Just a small shift changes everything. You must be able to look for new options beyond the situation you see.
The late Chief Obafemi Awolowo of blessed memory used the opportunity in prison to write “Thoughts on Nigeria Constitution” and in making copious notes for “Strategy and Tactics of the People’s Republic of Nigeria.”
So how can you change your business bitter experiences? Again it all has to do with business perception and it can literally be infinite. How many possibilities you see is only limited by your ability to change your perceptions. By changing your perception in business you can discover things you never saw before.
If for example, you have been frustrated from a network marketing business opportunity in the past, which may be due to your fault, or joining a wrong company or a bad sponsor. If you are now invited to a new one, certain areas of your brain announces to the rest of the mind, “it’s a scam.” Other parts of your brain suppress any further perceptions that this one may be real and it may be the business that will give you the financial freedom that you look for.
Basically, the past perception has shut down any further processing by the rest of your brain, by believing “all network marketing businesses are scams. You can stop now.”
This is what put up the boundaries in our business perception. It literally stops us from being able to see other possibilities and becomes the very walls that get us stuck. If other areas of your brain were allowed to continue processing and ignore the perception that they are all scams, then you can start seeing new possibilities in network marketing business.
The only way you can do that is by deliberating changing your business perception and seeing network marketing business in a whole new way. All you need is the willingness to shift your perception and remove those existing boundaries by asking yourself the question “can this be different?”
This does not imply that everyone will have the same results. Your success is determined by your desire, willingness to work, and focus on positive thinking. In the words of Howard Shultz, owner of a Starbuck’s coffee, “I believe a lot of what we ascribe to luck is not luck at all, it’s seizing the day and accepting responsibility for your future. It’s seeing what other people don’t see and pursuing that vision.”
To think about something is to give it vitality and energy. If a great proportion of your thinking is about financial problems, which causes the financial problem to be worse. So thinking about how to pay the bills only worsen the situation because you will achieve the opposite of what is desirable. What do you really want in place of financial problems and poverty?
The opposite is prosperity. By thinking about wealth instead of poverty the financial problems are being starved of energy and vitality. By withdrawing your attention from undesirable conditions, you literally cut off their life supply and eventually they die a natural death and disappear.
So not to think of about how to pay the bills or where the money is going to come from will eventually starve the situation of vitality and energy, and destroy the situation. Then it will no longer exist. Then you fill the empty space with thoughts of what you desire, which is financial freedom. We are all the sum total of our thoughts. The power we possess is within us, not outside.
The outside is the manifestation of our inner power, which manifest in material wealth such as house, car, a holiday, or whatever object give you pleasure personally. That is the power of business perception for you.
