Shift Your Mindset
Here’s a piece of advice: Act like the person you strive to become. In Kendell Jno-Finn’s latest Thoughts on Leadership episode, he discusses how to shift your mindset from defeat to motivation.
When faced with adversities, Kendell wisely advises to shift away from discouragement and instead envision your goal and figure out how you’re going to reach it.
Easier said than done, right?
That’s where the shift in mindset comes in. If your goal is to become CEO, have your mindset be that of a CEO. Behave like the CEO and be determined to complete the work leading to your vision. You’ll find that when you do accomplish your goal of becoming CEO, you’ve always been that person, and your attitude and work that helped you reach your goal will help you be successful in that position.
You can’t blow an uncertain trumpet.
Kendell’s episodes end with an inspiring quote, and this episode’s quote is one to write down and carry with you for times that you lack clarity on how to reach your goals. “The very essence of leadership is that you have to have a vision. It’s got to be a vision you articulate clearly and forcefully on every occasion. You can’t blow an uncertain trumpet.” -Reverend Theodore Hesburgh.
