More than a year has passed since my last article on this blog and an infinite number of things have happened in the world and in my life, always on the theme “Road is life” and I’m glad to continue to note is that life is always a psychological and experiential journey in which it is necessary to remain alert, proactive, humble, curious and if possible …. calm.
For this reason, the image above represents a serene landscape, captured at sunset during a recent Tuscany trip this winter.
Professional experience teaches me that fortunes come and go and, no matter how hard you try, you are unable to control them, no matter how much you plan everything, sooner or later something happens that forces you to reconsider everything.
So I think we must always be confident and proactive, not be overwhelmed by adversity and be always ready to review plans, negotiating solutions always with a collaborative approach.
The financial situation can also suddenly change therefore, while it’s normal to raise our standard of living when things are going well, we must always be on the alert of possible failures and be ready to face moments of difficulty with optimism and even a good dose of courage, like an investor who bets on a good project in times of difficulty on the market.
Even the evaluation of historical and political events must be removed from all the extreme accents that lead to excessive trust or extreme desperation in ourselves or in our own country. We must get away from both the nationalist and populist drifts of these years and the eas readings of history as studied (unfortunately superficially) at school.
Flexibility, adaptability and optimism were the qualities that allowed the human race to evolve in history anyway, which allow companies to grow and overcome difficulties and these virtues must allow each individual to move forward in adversity, without being pleased with results obtained but without even breaking down in the face of the obstacles that life poses.
As exemplified in the concept of Yin and Yang, good and bad always mix, both in the history of peoples and in the individual history of each.
Just as life sometimes seems hard but then leaves space to recover colors and joy, so I think we must maintain a balance in evaluating ourselves, others and the events in which we live in our history.
Any of our guilt from the past can be compensated for by the good deeds we do in the present, just as we must not delude ourselves that people close to us are immune to defects or from committing mistakes and then realizing one day that we had overestimated them. We are all a mixture of positive qualities and defects, but if everyone is aware of it, it is easier to maintain a more objective judgment.
See you next time!
