your problems are all the same, challenge, leadership, navy SEAL, overcome

Your Problems Are All the Same! (Wait, What?)

Your problems are all the same.

Problems and challenges are not relative to circumstance. A challenge is a challenge. The scope and severity of a problem or challenge may vary, but it is still something to be addressed and solved.

Given that problems and challenges are not relative to circumstance, it stands to reason that the laws of leadership are identical in every frame of reference.

If the laws of leadership (our Ice Cold Leader process) are identical in every frame of reference when it comes to addressing problems or challenges, then circumstances and events no longer look unpredictable. They look orderly.

Creating Order from Chaos

Imagine that you are able to look at every challenge, regardless of scope or severity, the same way. And further imagine you are able to solve that challenge the same way every time.

Imagine your state of mind and the benefit to your mental and emotional health if every problem or challenge looked orderly instead of confusing or chaotic. And finally imagine how your new outlook on leadership and tackling challenges positively influences your environment and those around you, both personally and professionally.  

This may sound overly simplistic, but it is not. It does not mean that you will not be overwhelmed at times. You will be. It does not mean that your emotions will not get the best of you at times. They will. It does not mean that you will not be subject to bouts of confusion at times. You will be.

The good news is that acknowledging all the things I just referenced are part of the same process to solve every challenge you run up against. So, again, despite the scope and severity of the challenge, you see order, not unpredictability.

This all begs the question, “How? How do I do this?”
