23 Jul VIDEO – Passion Mindset or Passive Mindset?
In this video blog episode I ask a tough question:
Are you approaching your goals with a passion mindset or passive mindset?
I look forward to your thoughts and comments below!
For those of you who prefer to READ… not watch:
I believe a passive mindset is contagious in business and LIFE. I’ve seen it over and over again… and it’s a key reason we don’t achieve success or the desired result and define for ourselves. We are just not all in. We leave a little something on the table. It’s what distracts us to invest in products and solutions that promise to change our lives or double our business results… When in reality it (our passive mindset) is why we are not successful.
Now… say this with me:
SHAME OFF US.
SHAME OFF US!
We all do this. I do it. You do it. We will probably continue to do it from time to time.
The key is realizing it as fast as possible. Ask yourself – what goals am I going after “half-heartedly”?
Half-heartedly simply means less than 100%. …or 90% …or 80%!
It might look something like this:
- You invested in a great coaching program at the beginning of the year. You were so passionate it… But once summer came along, your commitments started to slide.
- That goal of writing a blog or a book that you started so intentionally and now you are only make 30% of your schedule “writing meetings”! or… OVERCOMMITTING yourself.
- Taking on too many new projects or clients… and not being able to give them the excellent customer experiences that you truly desire to deliver!
So why do we do this? Why do we give ourselves half-heartedly to our dreams and goals?
Maybe it’s because we have no idea what is going to happen when we actually commit ourselves to something we want! What if it fails? Or…. what if it succeeds? THEN WHAT?
Maybe it is not the goals we truly want… maybe somebody else said we SHOULD do it and it made it’s way onto the goals list. That is why we are just doing it passively and not passionately.
Maybe that desire to take on a little bit too much is because that is what we think we are supposed to do! Everyone is posting how busy they are on Facebook, so maybe I should be TOO?! Maybe I just want to participate in that “I’m SOOOO busy!” Club.
Well, we are SABOTAGING our own success when we do those things…
(Just think–> potential clients might thing you are TOO BUSY for them!)
So, take some time. Ask yourself this question (Are you approving your goals with a passion mindset or a passive mindset?)
The answer is different for each of us. And it’s a worthy question to explore. Especially if you’re not getting the results you expected or desired.
FIRE yourself UP today!
Am I all in?
Are the goals that I have set for myself ones that I am wholeheartedly and passionately going for?
What is going to happen WHEN I have a passionate mindset?
