Presence of mind and performing under pressure - An asset for achieving successWe make a lot of prior preparations and plans for whatever we plan to do so that things are done without any hassle. But sometimes even in spite of all the preparations an unexpected, difficult or pressure situations come up where we need to act sensibly and on the fly. Many people lose out here as things did not go as per their prior planning and preparations and now they are confused and not able to think what to do. On the other hand, there are few people who may not have done so much prior planning and preparation but they possess a great presence of mind and temperament of handling pressure and difficult situation. Such people handle unexpected situations far better way.
So for success, hard work and prior planning are of course required but without the presence of mind and ability to perform when really needed and under difficult situation the chances of success may get dwindled. Success is not always doing the things right every time but it is doing the things right at the right time and under challenging circumstances. In present challenging times presence of mind and ability to perform under pressure and difficult situations can really be an asset to achieve one's goals. But this is the trait not everyone possesses but it is always beneficial to train our mind for it.
