You are either being BUILT up or BROKEN down…

Which are you doing?

Hey Team!

Can you believe snow is hitting us again in NY??

April 2nd…

Opening Day cancelled due to snow…

Ah… life in the Northeast…

It’s all good!

And today… I want to talk a little bit about mindset… but most importantly how your mindset is shaped…

A lot of people out there just feel “they are what they are”… and they have not taken the time to really look at how they were “shaped and formed”….

Deep… I know.. but self-awareness is so important..

I always feel this level of self-awareness helps answers 3 important questions..

1. Why do I do what I do?

2. Why do I feel the why I feel about people and things?

3. Why do I think about ____________ like that?

And when you really start to ask these questions to yourself, and understand your answers, you can then begin to really “Get” yourself… and tear down your defenses… lower your guard and walls… and start to rebuild yourself appropriately…

So many people today are acting out of impulse, reaction, repetitive themes, and the regurgitation of words, behaviors, and actions they learned from their upbringing…

Which really gets me thinking about people and culture…

Does your family culture have a negative or positive attitude?

Does your work culture have a negative or positive attitude?

The cultures you are around each day and are brought up in will determine your “elevation” in life…

What if work culture was not about being soft, weak, and trophy-esque … but was about real support, building people and each other up, and focused on really helping each other win? And helped each person reach their personal goals? That would be amazing!

What if your team culture was about winning.. not just the game… but also helping each team member win as well? That is 360 degree winning.. and how dynasty’s are built…

And finally, if you are a parent, what if you built your kids up instead of tore them down? You build their confidence.. “keeping it real” with them, not sugar coating.. but your tone, words, and focus is about that of encouragement, victory, achievement, and winning… rather than that of demoralization… and telling them how often they screw up?

There is a theme running around the internet today about vulnerability.. but it is spoken of in a such a weakened tone… but if people are built up..given confidence.. and truly pushed / believed in… the results would be epic…

So as we wrap up…

I encourage you to study your words… don’t just speak..but actually listen to your own words…

Don’t just go through life…. be aware of your actions, body language, and interactions…

In the end I think you will be surprised to know what your “auto piloted” actions really are….
