|If you want to bypass that age-old problem of every architect having to wait years or decades to become short-listed to receive an abundance of requests for proposals, then here finally is the key to finding architectural projects aplenty...|
Does finding architectural projects HAVE to be so painfully difficult?
Have you ever thought why it is so frustrating obtaining architectural projects?
And why it takes years or decades to become short-listed to receive requests for proposals?
Or why winning competitions or getting one's quote approved are such rare occasions??
Do we have to go the same slow
and winding route to eventual success, each and every one?
It actually depends on a person's state of mind rather than the mechanics of the physical universe.
How to lose the battle before it has even started
If we close our mind to a possibility, it becomes impossible. To ourselves, that is, not to others. As the famous Napoleon Hill said when talking about the power of thought:
"One of the main weaknesses of mankind is the average person's familiarity with the word "impossible.'' He knows all the rules which will NOT work. He knows all the things which CANNOT be done."
As an architect, you come across this often in how laymen view your area of expertise and its possibilities and solutions. But it affects everyone especially in areas where we face great difficulty and hardships.
Our ever present but clandestine shadow, "Mr/Ms Subconscious," quickly sticks the label "Completely impossible!" on anything that produces the pain of failure.
This hidden safety mechanism is there to ensure our mind does not overload with failure, which is poison to a human being. Unfortunately this covert safeguard stops us also when we would greatly BENEFIT from keeping on going.
It makes us stop just inches away from success, yet completely convinced it is all hopeless and obviously, reasons Mr Subconscious, the logical thing is to discontinue trying something that is impossible, is it not?
They claim that Albert Einstein said "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results," but I doubt he would have said that without defining that KEEPING ON TRYING to achieve a worthwhile goal and keeping looking for workable solutions is very much a sign of SANITY.
It is also the perseverance needed for achieving anything worthwhile.
Be that as it may, the point is that impossible is usually that which our slick and stealthy subconscious makes us believe we should not continue with "because we will fail again" and failure brings pain.
So this closes our mind to any possibility of there being a solution somewhere invented by someone and being USED by someone to handle that "unpassable" obstacle quite easily!
