Changing From Mr. Down In The Dumps To Mr. Up And Coming.

“I’m fed up.”

This was the opener from a client a few years ago, and not an unusual one I might add.

They were a leader in a large tech company who was very capable but an interesting side to them was that they would raise their eyes and smile any time I brought up the mental side of business.

The smile was a little bit like one you might get from an experienced business head talking to a more junior one.

This guy was American and in his words:

“Shane, we invented mindset and the inner game.”

Now while that could easily be challenged, I understood his point, and so we primarily focused on what I call the ‘outer game’ challenges and made great progress on his top goals.

Gaining Control Or Letting Go?

“You do not need to know precisely what is happening, or exactly where it is all going. What you need is to recognise the possibilities and challenges offered by the present moment, and to embrace them with courage, faith and hope.”

I know quite a few ‘control freaks’… 🙂

Fake Awards Trump Fake News

“I can honestly say that I’m not a person who thinks

about awards, as much as I think about the work itself.”

– Oprah Winfrey

Starting At The End Goal

“He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not,

but rejoices for those which he has.”
