Results come from actions, which are driven by behaviours, which are driven by mindset. I have subscribed to this wholeheartedly now for years; get the mindset right and the rest takes care of itself I’ve always believed. But what if you’ve tried many things and the mindset isn’t coming right? What if self-confidence isn’t there, what if you don’t believe you can do it, what if you are so fearful you just won’t act?
Then perhaps it’s time to act first, because actions create results, and those results influence our beliefs.
I realise now that this isn’t a linear relationship; it’s a cycle.
You can start any point in the cycle, results – actions – behaviours – beliefs, and you can influence the other parts.
So if there’s something you are struggling to change, I’d encourage you, act now and create proof for a new mindset to emerge.
Sometimes leadership is about creating a vision and bringing people along.
To love and be loved. Isn’t that all there really is?
Almost everyone I know who has achieved greatness in something, be that business, sports, the arts, they all began their journey to escape something.
There’s a lot of talk now about hiring people for attitude rather than skills.
When we want something, we are taught to visualise that thing, to focus on that image, until we have it.
There’s almost never a completely clean run.
Sometimes wonderful things take you by surprise, they open a new door.
Have you ever moved into a new house and seen something that needed fixing and thought “I’ll get on to that soon”?
Humans are tribal.
As humans we have an insatiable desire to explain untoward events so we can get on with solutions.
