I am present to many tired and jaded people who have lost hope and become resigned. It triggers two thoughts in my brain. The first is to stop complaining about what you don't have and go get what you want and need. The second thought is I need to teach them to stop complaining and go after what they need and want. I have a hard time being with others who are resigned and act like a victim (or at least that is how it occurs for me). It's an area of growth for me, and when I can be more understanding of others' needs and wants, it will help me better be with them with less judgement, like seeing them as a victim. Remember, I am not for everyone, as my way of thinking turns people off, but if you want to achieve different results, I know you have to think differently and take different actions.
I have been through many challenging situations in my life and have overcome so much, and I believe there is always something I can do which gives me control in my life. If I don't get what I want or need, I keep asking or go higher in the chain to get what I need. I refuse to see myself as a victim, which fuels me to achieve my best. I tell myself, "There is no one coming to rescue me, and I am it." Using the "Warrior Mindset", I ask myself, "If I was a warrior, what would I do to get what I want or need?" When I take on this warrior mindset and let it wash over me, it gives me a powerful place to make decisions from. Try it out for yourself. Let me know if it makes a difference to you and what you were able to accomplish.
My "I am it" attitude has me be optimistic in a world that feels like it is all falling apart. I create my future with my words and then take actions that are consistent with that future happening.
Do you feel like the world is falling apart and you will never get what you want, need, or even get that desired promotion or job offer? Or are you a go-getter and do not stop until you get what you need or want? How does it impact your performance, productivity and overall job satisfaction? How does it impact your company's workplace culture? What goals or achievements could you achieve if you took on the "Warrior Mindset?"
