The Process

the process aren deu

The Process is something I speak a lot about a lot. It is something I believe we all need to understand and get our heads around.

But before I begin, I’d like to use a quote I heard from Inky Johnson which really resonated with me:

Can you be committed to the process of what you’re doing, without being emotionally attached to the results of what you doing? In other words, if you don’t get what you thought you was going to get, would you still be the same individual? If the situation don’t turn out how you thought it would turn out, would you still be the same individual?

This then comes down to a persons character as Inky Johnson continues by stating:

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments Of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

Now probably not the best to start a short blog, but I hope these quotes resonate and linger in your thoughts for sometime, post reading this.

Instant Gratification

You see we are in an instant gratification world:

  • Everyone wants to get a 6 pacs in 7 days
  • Everyone seems to become a guru within 6 months
  • Many people now label themselves experts after 6 months of doing
  • Everyone chases get quick rich money schemes to “solve all their worries & get that laptop lifestyle”
  • The majority chase likes and shares irrespective of whether they are speaking their truth
  • We move from property, to shares, to forex, to bitcoin month by month
  • We look for easy ways to skip the hardships and struggles

Effectively, we either try to, or we aim to capture something that does the following:

“Makes us look like we are further along the journey than we already are”

Now, I am also someone personally who lets people be whoever they choose to be. Irrespective of whether this is 100% non-authentic. But I do however see myself as an advocate for those who may be potentially manipulated by such people.

I operate in 2 main areas, health and fitness and the UK property sector. (Well okay, 3 I have a kinda deceeeent Podcast <—)

Now sadly none of these are regulated, so people claiming to be “this and that” and having “x” years experience is something I can’t control.

Now sadly none of these are regulated, so people claiming to be “this and that” and having “x” years experience is something I can’t control. It seems the whole world is now suddenly fixated on reading to orphans and caring so deeply about people that they just want to help.

So for that reason, when I sense manipulation and poor ethics at stake I have to stand up and speak. For me it is a different kind of bullying. To force someone into believing, they are lacking the necessary tools, the skills and that they will only truly become fulfilled with that persons offering makes me sick.

But rather than rant and rave about that, I have switched my focus to trying to get those, eager to fill “voids” they believe they have, by letting them know that in fact, they aren’t missing anything. They have everything they need to get to where they want to get within. Maybe it requires nurturing and time to upskill but its there.

The Process

You see the only thing they are lacking is enduring and moving through the process. Yes we can time collapse our journeys, with experience and mentorship from the right people but on the whole I urge anyone reading this to do the following:

  1. Identify your current capabilities in terms of skill sets.
  2. Identify the resources you currently have available.
  3. Figure out what areas need to be strengthened by you, what areas can be strengthened by others
  4. Figure out what resources you can obtain and where from.

Now for the sake of teaching people to suck eggs, ill leave that there. But for anyone who wants further clarity on these drop me a message and ill explain it in more detail, no problem at all.

We have to get use to the fact that things don’t happen overnight, or as quick as we want. To build a skill set it takes time, patience, ups and downs and commitment. To acquire the knowledge to handle larger problems, which in return will provide larger incomings you have to work your way up.

My first project in Property was not a £50m project. It was a single buy to let. Small and steady started my race. At the same time, my first personal training client wasn’t a professional footballer either. Everything takes time.

Just how it did when you learnt to ride a bike, drive a car or pick up a degree. Every lesson, every day, every assessment built on your current level. This is what we have to do in the process.

So that’s the process, but what is the point?

So the point is simple. When you go through such a “process” you have to ask yourself the first quote listed above:

Can you be committed to the process of what you’re doing, without being emotionally attached to the results of what you doing? In other words, if you don’t get what you thought you was going to get, would you still be the same individual? If the situation don’t turn out how you thought it would turn out, would you still be the same individual?

You see we often put ourselves in arenas, places of work, jobs etc that don’t fulfil us or keep us happy. Or we chase the silver penny syndrome in the hope it will solve all our problems. But if we don’t endure them, or enjoy them we have to question why we are doing them?

Why are we doing these get-rich-quick schemes? Why are we changing course and following a short term solution? What are we hoping to obtain?

And for those manipulating people, what are you truly trying to achieve? An insecurity, or void you are trying to fill with making money by being inauthentic?

Concluding points

So there’s some food for thought there I hope. I only write this to make you think. Because let’s just say you never achieve the results. Let’s just say your healthy delusion of striving for huge goals falls short.

In fact, lets make it even better. Let’s imagine you 100% find out you won’t achieve those results. A psychic (whether you believe it or not) has just told you so. So for the sake of this, its true, you won’t achieve them.

Now ask yourself: “Would I still do what I do?

The chances are many of us wouldn’t. Many of us wouldn’t post the way we do on social media, if we didn’t believe it would get us results. Many of us wouldn’t fake it till we made it. Furthermore, most of us would probably become more authentic and stop putting on a facade to say and do the right things, in the hope that right things materialise.

So I guess this comes down to intent and authenticity once more, but also I hope it provokes some thoughts in your mind. Why do you do what you do? Are you capable of enduring the process in something you aren’t doing with the right intent when things go wrong (cue the second quote):

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments Of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

Because if not, then you need to re-evaluate your values, why and motives. You need to get committed to something above just your own selfish needs and wants. It needs to be authentic, because an act will always show cracks over time. It needs to be something that even if the results weren’t guaranteed you would still strive for. Finally, it needs to be your process.
