Team Individual Mindset

  • DO NOT suffer from "small pie" disease

    • Leads to fear and inaction

    • Share and I will be rich

  • Feed my mind good stuff

    • Develop a habit of reading something uplifting and inspiring first thing each day

  • Go on a "mind diet"

    • Cut the time my spend exposed to negative and stressful media

  • The only thing that is as strong as fear is validation

    • Park positive memories of my succeeding at the front door of my mind

    • Revisit them to build my confidence

 

  • Criticism to my face is a gift

    • Treat critical information like a sunflower seed: eat the useful grain of truth (the nut), and throw away whatever does not resonate for me (the shells)

 

  • Follow my purpose, not my passion

    • Align my work activities with my values, I will love what I do and make a big impact

    • Passion is everything

 

  • Think bigger about who I am

    • 3 types of business owners: dabblers, dreamers, and leaders in pursuit of mastery

    • The future belongs to the learner

 

  • Marketing does not get my clients

    • Creates awareness, which can then lead to sales after I build trust with those prospects over time

 

  • Put up a red velvet rope

    • Instead of having a desperate, take-all-comers outlook, position myself to take only the best clients who let me do my best work

    • This will lead to more great clients and enjoyable work

 

  • Kill my elevator speech

    • Who wants to listen to that?

    • Develop a personal brand identity that is true to who I am, then talk about it

 

  • Put a dent in the universe

    • DO NOT lose sight of the big vision

 

  • Make connections

    • People with a broad set of life experiences can often see things that others miss

    • DO NOT live in a bubble

    • Connect ideas from different fields

 

  • Say no to 1000 things

    • What am I saying "no" to?

    • Put the A-team on my product or service

 

  • Create insanely different experiences

    • Enrich the lives of my customers and create an emotional connection between my team and my customers

 

  • Master the message

    • Do not just present...become a storyteller

    • Inform...educate...inspire...entertain all in one presentation

 

  • Sell dreams, not products

    • My customers care about themselves, their hopes, and their ambitions

    • Help my customers reach their dreams...I will win them over
