MBL Minute: Vision Grit And Mind Over Matter


Episode Notes


Grit is the key to motivation and success.  It comes from a strong emotional connection to the Vision of our desired result.  Leadership and management require different abilities.  Abilities designed to achieve different outcomes.  The purpose of management is to establish, maintain and make improvements within the existing status quo.  Leadership requires the grit to move beyond the pale of the status quo in order for innovation and change to occur.


Our paradigm determines our perception of reality.  In order to achieve better results we need to change our perception of reality, we need to change our paradigm.  This can only be accomplished by changing our actions and performing the emotional labor that entails.  This requires the willingness to leave our comfort zone again and again and again.  The illiterate of the 21st Century will be the people who refuse to learn, unlearn and relearn.  Our paradigm controls our beliefs, behaviors and results.
