Three keys are crucial to navigating the global business environment of today. This is because the environment appears to have many circumstances existing throughout the world which create challenging situations for business. The present-day businessperson has few options when faced with such terrains. While high-level educational training or business theories have their place, the businessperson may find that there is a limit to what these can do, with regard to the practicalities of handling some particularly challenging issues. In handling these issues, the first key that will be required is “news way of thinking” and this includes many of the concepts advocated in this forum. Two other crucial keys with associated perspectives are discussed below.
Before mentioning the two other keys, a note in point is what stoic philosopher and Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius offers as a piece of advice in his book, Meditations, saying: “If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.” It does appear that some business people have found this power to succeed in fluid, tough terrains through “adaptability and perseverance”. These are the two other crucial keys. With this empowerment they have revoked the unfavorable estimate of their external business environment to survive and even thrive well, despite the challenging circumstances in these terrains. So with applying the three keys of new ways of thinking, adaptability and perseverance you can be enabled to push, pull and navigate your way through till you succeed in your endeavor.
