Are you giving relentless effort? Sometimes it feels like a thankless job. Does it make a difference for future outcomes? Yes.
Mindset is powerful and often we need to shift the concept of problems to opportunities. Opportunities can be much more attractive when compared with problems. Mindset starts with a choice.
When it comes to service interactions, you have a choice about how you will accept the outcomes of your efforts.
Say, “Hello.” to a stranger and you may or may not get a response. You took the risk and you accept the possibility of no reaction, or worse, perhaps a negative reaction.
Applying Relentless Effort
Relentless effort is about multiplying this effect across time. A one-time deal isn’t nearly as effective as repetitive daily pursuit.
One stumbling block for relentless effort is having the willingness (it’s a choice) to accept what happens next. When you are committed to your choice, you’ll have the energy, even in the face of adversity, to try again.
You may ask yourself this simple two-part question, “What is the opportunity in front of me and am I willing to pursue it relentlessly?”
Persistence matters, and persistence across time is relentless pursuit.
You have to be willing to accept what happens next, even when the results may not be desirable.
It makes a difference for what you’ll do next, and that, makes a difference for what happens next.
