Your go-to set of attitudes

Steve Jobs quote
Every leader is telling a story about what he or she values, through their behaviors.
Questions for podcast interview
Today’s Catalyst Sale podcast questions from Mike Simmons.

Your go-to set of attitudes is called mindset.

(please assume here an underlying tone of deep encouragement – all your previous victories)

Problem or challenge?

Problem of opportunity?

Mid Life Crisis or Mid Life Celebration?

When we spent our life savings to try to become parents and there was not only no guarantee, the odds 30 years ago (when we started) were unencouragingly low.

At first i was sad our life savings was gone.

Quickly, i became grateful the money had been there to spend.

Moving my 35 year-old desk from the far wall, with my back always to the windows, to across the room against the windows and facing out the East windows – transformational.

Same room. Same Desk.

Different location.

Only took 15 years to discover.

Starting every day on my knees since our son was born.

An after school hug for 15 years. Why?

Quitting drinking after nearly three decades. Why?

Starting a podcast. Why? Help me fail.

Senior Olympian.

Is it ever ok to be greedy?

Disney leadership speaker
You are in charge of your attitude. Period.

 

Is it ever ok to be greedy?

Yes.

When it comes to the thoughts you think, be an overachiever with positive thinking.

Indulge in good, decent and hopeful thinking.

This isn’t about living in a fantasy world, this is about living with tremendous gratitude.

A grateful heart sees everything as a gift.

For example, i believe in God, and i also believe God wastes nothing.

Things only become a saying or a cliche if they are true.

Do you agree with this?

Remember, these are time-tested.

Passed down from one generation to the next.

Ya with me?

Attitude is everything.

Bonus saying: There are two wolves in life, pick wisely the one you feed.

A Summer of Questions

What differentiates you in your industry?

Bald Eagle dominating Vultures
Nature has a pecking order. Humans have options unavailable to other species.

 

What differentiates you in your industry?

It’s difficult to find the competitive advantage to stand out in a crowded space full of people shouting “pick me”.

It’s hard to become the obvious first choice for people who need and want what you and your competition provide.

There will always be competition more experienced, smarter, and more skilled than you.

But there’s one place where you can stand out.

Your attitude.

Was that your initial answer to the first question above?

You can bring more generosity, more enthusiasm, more determination, more simplicity, more positive energy, more courage and more Magic to the World than anyone else.

That can be what differentiates you – your attitude.
