Key Ideas

The journey is the destination

We never arrive. We work hard to succeed, and then we have to work twice as hard to maintain that success.

It’s a slow grind. And it starts with our mindset.

Don’t rely on your talent

We all have some type of talent, something that sets us apart from the rest of the world. This can also be a potential trap.

Never just rely on your gift or talent alone. Work on your craft. Investigate your weaknesses and make an effort to minimize them.

"One of the paradoxes of life is that the things that initially make you successful are rarely the things that keep you successful.”

Passion and perseverance

Grit represents a combination of passion and perseverance for a specific, long-term goal.

It means being able to rebound from adversity and it is the greatest contributor to your success.

Consistent small steps maintain momentum

You reach big goals with consistent baby steps.

You have to give yourself credit for small gains. They build momentum and provide much-needed life lessons.

Trust your vision

That doesn’t mean you shouldn't make adjustments within your business.

It means that you have to have trust that your ideas will work.

Take action toward your goal

You can't think your way to a goal. You have to take action.

Be willing to take action, even potentially incorrect action, and make it a habit.

  • Start by building your identity.
  • Focus on small behaviors, not life-changing transformations.

Defining Mental Toughness

Whatever it is, be clear about what you’re going after and tie it to concrete actions. You can’t think your way to becoming mentally tough, you prove it to yourself by doing something in real life.

Mental Toughness And Small Wins

Mental toughness needs to be worked to grow and develop. If you haven’t pushed yourself in thousands of small ways, you’ll wilt when things get difficult.

Extreme situations test our courage, perseverance, and mental toughness, but so do everyday circumstances. Challenge yourself whenever you can, consistently do what you know you’re supposed to and don’t let your brain’s laziness control you.

A growth mindset is a desirable thing to have...

...so many people declare they have it:

  • If they are open minded and flexible, they said they have it
  • If they are kind to people, they said they have it 

But a&nb...

The growth mindset

...is the belief that your abilities can be improved through effort. 

And this means you can get better and hard work pays off.

Tips for encouraging a growth mindset (in yourself and in others):
  • Don’t praise ability or intelligence: That promotes a fixed mindset. Compliment effort, process and choices.
  • Don’t ignore outcome, tie it to effort: You can be happy about success, but attribute it to effort.
  • Respond positively to failure: Failure isn’t bad, it’s a tool for improving.
  • Don’t just say “Try hard.” Set goals: Blind repetition doesn’t work. 
  • Practice a Growth mindset in all areas of life: There’s no area where they cannot improve with hard work.
  • Share your own Growth mindset efforts: Practice it yourself and share your results.

People with a Growth Mindset believe they can grow, develop, and master whatever skills and abilities they wish in life.

They enjoy learning and overcoming challenges, work...

Mindset is a belief system

It includes the ideas we have about ourselves and the world around us. 

These beliefs come from our innate dispositions, childhood experience and/or cultural/societal influence and are often entrenched.

Examine the evidence

If you believe you can’t learn new skills or change the way you work, look at the evidence that supports both your negative and positive beliefs.

This may not necessarily lead to a modification of those beliefs, but is an important start. You can use belief monitoring to keep track of your thinking.
