EP:185 How To Turn Off Your Employee Mindset and Go For it
If you don't embrace life and move forward and get very explicitly focused on you and your journey, then you're going to choose to let life bring you down.
I believe this. If my life sucks, if my company sucks, if my world sucks, or my marriage sucks, that's all my fault because it's on me to create the life that I want to create. If something tragic happens in my life, and it hits me harder than it should is because I didn't do the things before to make sure that whenever that tragedy struck that I wasn’t prepared. I wasn’t mentally ready to handle the aftermath.
I'm not telling you that if your life sucks that you suck, I'm telling you that the choices I make in my life that that's what I embrace. But I do think the world is selfish. I think the world's a little vain I believe, people are sitting around waiting for life to happen to them and they're not putting any effort they're not going for it. They're not trying to find themselves and shaking things up trying to create a better life for themselves. They are stuck in an employee mindset.
The employee mindset means you show up to your job when you when you're supposed to, you go home at the end of the day. You clock out and collect a paycheck. Then you do this every day. There’s nothing wrong with that lifestyle. But that lifestyle is going to keep people exactly where they are.
When you start over internalizing that, you're not where you want to be in life, and that you should have it, that life should just come to you that you should, already be accomplishing these significant things. Especially when you haven't done the work, you're selfish; you're vain. You know, the world is not going to hand it to you. You've got to go through the things and do those things that will help you get your life to the level you want it
A lot of people are often looking at the world with, rose-colored glasses on. Everything is sunshine and rainbows, and they’re envisioning themselves to these great and awesome places then they’re still sitting, they're doing absolutely nothing. Then they are expecting all kinds of results; life doesn't work that way.
If you want a great life, then you have to create it and embrace it. You've got to, to build it, which means you got to do the things that you need to be doing to grow yourself. Then to grow your business, expand your job, and enhance yourself and upgrading to the next level. You level up and evolve when you embrace life.
