What type of mindset do you have?
With the Final Four this weekend, I have been thinking a lot about how to help your team develop a mindset of greatness. Does it differ when preparing for a big game? Do you lead more with your actions than your words? One of my favorite leadership books (that I highly recommend) is The Greatness Mindset by Lewis Howes. In the #cjjblog this week, I give you some valuable insight from Lewis’ book, and tips on how you can help your team develop a greatness mindset. Enjoy.
- Definition. How do you define greatness? Is it different than how your team members define it? Discover your unique gifts to pursue your meaningful mission and make the maximum positive impact on those around you.
- Mindset. Are you in the greatness cycle? 1) Understand your identity, 2) Thoughts, 3) Emotions, and 4) Behavior (determined by steps 1-3).
- Mission. Do you have a meaningful mission? A clear why will help you figure out the how. What do you really want? Make it personal, passionate, and selfless.
- Engage greatness. What does a perfect day look like for you? Write down the entire itinerary from when you wake up until you go to sleep.
- Challenges. How well do you overcome challenges? Are you afraid of failure? The only thing worse than failure is the regret of not trying. Don’t be scared of success. Once achieved, continue to grow. Do you have a fear of judgment? Don’t let your ego derail your success.
- Dreamkillers. Overcome your self-doubt with relentless positive self-talk and affirmations. Say to yourself “I am worthy of greatness.”
- Fear Conversion Toolkit. If you experience fear often, this book (chapter) is for you. In order to become fearless, You must face your fears, flip your mindset to an abundance of positivity, analyze your problem, accept the worst possible outcome, and take action anyways.
- Actionable items. This book is filled with actionable tasks and takeaways. Give it a read!
