A look at world history shows that a volatile environment of this type is good for the people who know how to take advantage of it. Even in the Great Depression, there were people who managed to find a lot of success. Therefore, if you have been struggling to succeed since the global economic downturn started, then you need to realize that the solution lies inside you. Here are some tips that would help you realize your realize your own potential.

Change your Attitude by not complaining.

The first thing you need to do to succeed in such an environment is to stop complaining. Complaining is nothing but a way to find a reason to not strive more. In other words, the more you complain, the less likely you would be to decide to break the trend. It is easy for any person to find some external reason for his lack of success. However, unless the problem is realized the solution would never be found.

Therefore, you should stop complaining and focus instead on finding solutions to the existing problems. As you shift from focusing on the problem to trying to find the solution, you would start considering multiple solutions. It is likely that one of the many solutions you come up with would work out for you. Regardless of whether your solution is to move to prosperous countries like India or just work harder at work, you will find it.

Avoid putting all your eggs in one basket.

While you make your calculations and come up with certain ideas to succeed, you would also need to take the potential of failure into account. This is important because sometimes chance also plays a role in whether you are able to succeed or not. Therefore, you need to find a way to work around chance. In other words, you have to put chance as a variable in your equation as well.

The best way to counter the possibility of some coincidence ruining your chance at succeeding is to try to put in place multiple solutions for a single problem. For example, if your problem is that you cannot make it to work on time then you should try to solve the problem through multiple solutions. These solutions could be eating corn flakes for breakfast, aiming to reach work an hour before time or even laying out all your clothes for the morning at night.

Think innovation as against thinking imitation.

When you start trying to make your own improvement a part of your life, you would feel to just start copying someone who you idolize. This would not result in much success because every individual has his own ways of dealing with things. If a person has some way of dealing with something, it does not mean that this way would suit you as well. The trick for you is that you try to find your own solutions because your problems would be specific to you as well.

For example, a person might decide to ride a bike to work to make sure he is not late. However, this might not be a good solution for you because you might not know how to ride a bike. Therefore, your solution would have to not only fit your specific qualities but also your specific preferences.
