I love writing but cannot start unless I come up with an exemplary idea and sometimes I end up in nebulochaotic mindspace because of too many floating ideas.

Search for a “real idea” is an earnest effort endowed with concentrated pressure for newness in the chosen topic. Also, it is a sort of branching out into intensified hunt for essential planning components to make that idea walk in public domain when it is delivered in the form of an article or essay or speech.

As I said above, the difficult part is creating a rhythmic momentum for that article to get connected with readers. If it is done so constructively then it creates interest in readers then readers start questioning their favourite points. That is what writers wanted. To come up with such ideas and for getting connected with the audience, we do not have to be a neuroscientist or social psychologist.

We live in society. Each individual is different in his own way from others through their thinking, attitude and behaviour.  But they move along synchronized for a common cause of community drive. We all know social psychologists study such behaviour pattern and neuroscientists study the nervous system. These two disciplines interestingly intersect in one area is commonly referred to as the human mind. While one specialist sees unseen "software" of the brain, the other investigates the individual’s behaviour in society. Putting together perceive specific inquisitive at work and thereby advocate, “Mind can influence and controls behaviour”.

So in society based ascendancy, Human beings have a personal code, schools have a principled code, religions have a moral code, society has community code, the governments have the institutionalized code but when it comes to business, it does not have any code because business is a moonglade of human greediness. Business can be started easily without proper norms or ethical code. Business can be borne out of the suffering of poverty and from the state of desperation for not having achieved anything or from the overtiredness of servitude. Once a business is started, mostly it is never bolted; it survives through and maybe sometimes it leads to crisis and chaos. So, a business code is a desideratum.

If a business is borne out of trust and compassion, it will perpetually proliferate. We have to welcome it.

And above all, if a business is borne out of intelligent man’s successful experiments, it can become a well-matured venture with peaceful simplicity. As a matter of fact, businesses or organisations have not shaped intelligent individuals.  Instead, Human intelligence has created much new business and shaped businesses into corporate houses.

We will identify such intelligent people in this article.

From the so-called society, organisations prosper, people flourish, and good leaders are remembered most. For me, the interesting individuals are “Successful Professionals”, because they act still another way and exhibit distinguished positive pattern from common folk and average professionals. I personally feel the secret for their success is how they take the decision and how they keep other people in a constrain sphere to wait for their decisions.

To illustrate this, take successful professional like consultants, mentors, lawyers, charted accounts, artists, doctors, entrepreneurs and musicians etc., though they are not neuroscientists, or social psychologist yet they deal with and keep people around them. Captivatingly, if we observe these professionals’ behaviour at close quarters, they exhibit or we detect 3 prepositions such as (1) rationality, (2) highly self-centredness and (3) peculiar sensitivities to inclinations.

In common, we can say every human being is selfish, hence successful professionals also exhibit the same traits. There is nothing new about successful professionals.

But, yes, there is the difference. The difference is every human being is not a professional. And at the same time, all professionals are not as the most successful professionals achieve in succession.

In these three types, we shall observe “thinking pattern” and the application of “thinking” in a simple reflection.

We start this by taking “happy” as a gauging tool. Why I have chosen the word “happy” because everybody and his family want to be happy. To make happy, they can harness muscle purposefully to create new comfort zones.

The common man is interested “What is happy in my life?” 

The word “in” denotes present or existing at that moment. This is a simple question, once he finds a simple answer; he continues “in” achieving that simple achievement and satisfy his transitory treat. That is his everyday activity. By doing so, he finds new solace in his daily life and thus he accustomed to the level of a satisfied comfort zone. And never seek to move up the life ladder.

More interestingly, mediocre professionals act differently from the common folk. These Professionals ask “What is happy with my life?” 

“WITH” signifies a “comparative analysis” with non-professionals or existing competitive professionals. These moderate professionals’ question is also simple “how they can be better off than ordinary folk and contemporaries?”

As average/mediocre professionals, they acquire some seminal skillset and mediocre talent; they strive to achieve what they want and struggle to sustain in comfort zone.

These two types never accept any “positive changes” or any changes because accepting “change” can result in losing their comfort zone can be their fear. It is a fear-based survival and cannot accept changes and challenges. They like to stay put in that way.

But Successful Professionals ask “What is happy about my life?”

“ABOUT” is a word, which denotes “present and future” maybe about jobs, maybe about better pay and maybe about a better future. These folks never satisfy with what they have either in terms of skillset, talent or wealth.  They continuously endeavour to achieve an “extra” influence and upgrade the necessary components to stay ahead of contemporaries.  They plan the future 10 years ahead.  They analyse their strengths year on year basis and strengthen their intelligence and corporal wealth year on year basis.

The “one” difference between average/mediocre professionals and the most Successful Professionals is; (from SWOT analysis) the average professionals strive to strengthen their weaknesses and overcome threats.  In that endeavour, they waste away prime life’s valuable years. 

But the Successful Professionals hone their core range and reinforce strength from “strong” point to “stronger” level. Instead of concentrating on threats, they concentrate on seeking opportunities and avail opportunities at the earliest. They seek opportunities before others see, they weigh the benefit of investing in opportunities before others do and they reach the goal-oriented destination before others reach.

By doing so, the Successful Professionals are ahead of the game. This means, they set the goals and win the goals in time without fail.

There is also another major factor in their success. Successful Professionals are business philocalists because they love life with money and without money, so they push themselves out of their comfort zones. Successful Professionals accept positive and constructive changes. They are very aware of how quickly the comfort zone, in any area, becomes a furrow. They know that complacency is the great enemy of creativity and future possibilities.

So much so as a consultant, I always look for some special features in my clients and their executives as traits of Successful Professionals. My clients and their executives often use words like decision making, capacity, competence, commitment, motivation and creativity etc.

Before we employ these words, mere knowing them lexicographically and etymologically is not enough. We have to deep dive and dwell on interesting psychological components “conscious and sub-conscious”, scaffold centres for arousal and satisfaction or for dissection and rearrange. If we understand dissection and rearrange, we can employ such words not only appropriately but also can understand how our brain actually manifests to achieve impossible things in possible ways.

Now I shall stop this article due to paucity of time and space. After having said sufficiently, I would like to advice amateur managers and budding leaders to concentrate on “thinking of contemplation” and “widening their mind space”. When this happens, the promising professionals transform as successful professionals.

In my next article, I shall write on human psychological platforms “consciousness” and “sub-consciousness”, main centres for decision making, capacity, competence, commitment, motivation and creativity etc.
