“The best performers set goals that are not about the outcome but about the process of reaching the outcome.”

The journey is the destination

You never arrive. You work hard to succeed, and then you work twice as hard to maintain your success. It’s a slow grind. And it starts with your mindset.

Don’t rely on your talent

 We all have some kind of talent, something that sets us apart from our peers. 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.”

Build your grit

Grit is a mix of passion and perseverance for a unique, long-term goal. 

Because this ability to rebound from adversity and maintain focus is the greatest contributor to your success.

Generate 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 be adaptable or make changes within your business. 

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

Take action

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.

Steps For Building a New Habit

  • Start by building your identity.
  • Focus on small behaviors, not life-changing transformations.
  • Develop a routine that gets you going regardless of how motivated you feel.

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.

Mindsets in the workplace

We spend half of our day at work (and even more) and both our mindset and the mindset of those around us will have a significant impact on our life, especially the mindset of our leaders.

The fixed mindset in the workplace

  • It doesn’t easily allow you to change course.
  • It doesn't  believe in growth,  but in right and wrong and any suggestion of change or adaptation is considered a criticism.
  • Challenges or obstacles tend activate defensive mechanisms.
  • When something goes wrong, it doesn't take responsibility- it blame others because that would be akin to accepting inferiority.
  • Believes in a world of hierarchy: where some people are superior and some are inferior. 

Creating a growth-mindset environment

  • Presenting skills as learnable
  • Conveying that the environment values learning and perseverance, not just ready-made genius or talent
  • Giving feedback in a way that promotes learning and future success.
