Attract the Right Job Or Clientele:

We Cannot Predict Our Outcomes

It’s essential to remember that we cannot predict our outcomes. Accordingly, when something unusual comes to mind, I try it to see what may happen. Sometimes, the effort appears a waste of time to others, but for me, I strive to reap the lessons from the episode. 

The word ‘episode’ can be likened to any television series. The plot begins with innocence, and the characters learn to cope and advance past setbacks. Growing a business or seeking to advance a career is no different; the winning strategy is to seek to learn from every incident. The process enables us to grow personally and professionally.

My Story

The title of our blog is the theme of my career, as most people I knew always said to me, ‘That’s a ridiculous idea!’ Despite the negativity surrounding me, I did what I believed intuitively to be suitable for me and eventually provided the strategies to be so. 

Click the link to hear and read the transcript of ‘Bouncing Back with Elinor: A Tale of Courage, Change, and Entrepreneurial Milestones podcast’ hosted by Jesse Blount. It reveals some demeaning experiences I could eventually turn into fruitful events. Finding a better way around what will not work is always necessary to discover what will help us to succeed.

At the heart of the matter is with dire predictions in front of us; we have nothing to lose to see if our plan may work. Even better is there is relatively little to lose when we are at the beginning phase of our careers. Experimentation, trial and error, and trying again are the components for succeeding.

The bonus of remaining true to what we desire and authentic with our business growth approach is attracting similar-minded others. Accordingly, we can extend our reach and substantially increase business growth by communicating with our audience. The goal is to honestly verbalize what our prospective clientele desires from a service such as ours to uncover how we may best serve them well.

While sales trainers may teach us that it’s necessary to speak to our prospective clientele’s needs, wants, and desires, it is also vital to be honest and consistent in our words, actions, and deeds. Before ending a conversation, verifying you are on the same wavelength for proceeding is critical. Only then can we establish a loyal clientele who will freely promote the benefits of doing business with us.

Your Story: We Cannot Predict Our Outcomes

Too many people give up before they give every effort to something they believe might work. Why? They can’t handle the criticisms surrounding them and begin to doubt themselves, eventually becoming fearful. But when one is to realize no one has a crystal ball that accurately makes predictions 100% of the time.  \

Although it may sound strange, paying attention to intuition can give way to a better route by involving deeper thinking. Pros and cons exist for every question and situation, and you must comb through all the weeds to find the growth that may potentially blossom into something special.

The better approach is to realize your ultimate vision for accomplishment and match your goals and experiments accordingly. Ensuring everything is in sync with the theme, including priorities and values, plus the dedication to research, trial and error, you will stand a far better chance of succeeding.

One word of caution is verifying that you can afford to experiment with a new idea and will not adversely affect your bottom line. I’ve met many entrepreneurs who quickly needed to end their endeavors because they believed the expenditures would likely ensure better outcomes. Budgeting is an essential component for increasing the likelihood of succeeding.

In Conclusion: We Cannot Predict Our Outcomes

If we cannot predict our future, then it is doubtful that anyone else has the power to do so. Should an idea come to mind that excites and motivates you to try, it is in your best interest to give the idea your all. Most people emphasize ‘failure,’ but the effort becomes worthwhile when we omit the word to look at a poor outcome as an opportunity for learning. Accordingly, we can take the next challenge plus experience to a higher level!
