Podcast Cover art for mission-critical leadership podcast episode 15

In life, everyone gets stuck. The important thing to remember is that clarity creates confidence. In episode 15 of the Mission-Critical Leadership Podcast, we talk about three ways we get stuck, and I’ll cover three ways to break free and pursue the life you’ve always wanted.

Clarity Creates Confidence

Everyone experiences a stuck mindset in three primary ways:

  1. A lack of Discipline. (You can’t live from a place of motivation, you need to have a plan to be intentional in your energy expenditure).
  2. A lack of Resources. (Determine your true need and bare minimum needed for progress, don’t get sucked into starting “later” when you have it all together).Podcast Cover art for mission-critical leadership podcast episode 15: Clarity Creates Confidence
  3. A lack of Risk. (If you don’t know what’s at stake, you have no personal risk or reason to be uncomfortable).

To counter this, there are three ways that we can break free of these stuck moments in life. The bottom line is that clarity creates confidence.

  1. Get clear on your routine. (This helps instill discipline and the ability to execute the plan).
  2. Get clear on what you need. (Determine the difference between ‘wants’ and ‘needs’).
  3. Get clear on what is at stake. (Figure out your ‘why’ and the risk of not pursuing your dreams).

In This Episode

In this episode, we talk about those moments when we’re overwhelmed, exhausted, lacking in focus, and unmotivated. We talk about what gets us stuck, and how we can overcome it.

  1. Three ways of experiencing the stuck mindset.
  2. The three action steps that empower action and inspire growth.
  3. How mission-critical leaders inspire others.

 

Looking for the TL;DR version: get clear on what you want, where you’re headed, and why that matters. Clarity creates confidence.

We’ve all experienced something that has demotivated, deflated, or derailed us. What’s your stuck story?

In this episode of the Mission-Critical Leader Podcast, we talk about those narratives we tell ourselves and what we can do to overcome them.

What’s Your Stuck Story?

In the fifth grade, I received a stuck story that stayed with me for a decade. This limiting belief was that I wasn’t good enough. I didn’t deserve success, happiness, abundance, love, or belonging. Instead, I deserved to be reminded how much of a failure I was.

I believed this for years (sadly) until I was able to break free.

And I’ve learned over the years, we all carry that baggage with us.

In this episode of the Mission-Critical Leadership podcast, Justin talks about his one big requirement from prospective clients to determine the quality of their fit with his coaching system. It starts by answering the question, “What’s at stake?”

The Crucial Question: What’s at Stake?

Sometimes we learn through success. More often, however, we learn through failure. Early in my coaching career, I had my “anti-client.” He was someone that was such a bad fit for me, we were both miserable. In today’s episode, we talk about what I learned from him, and how that shaped my future practice.

Now, with this information and insight, I ask all prospective clients one major question.

This question tells me why the work we will do matters and helps me gauge their commitment to coaching. More than that, it gives them clarity and focus as we start our journey.

It is also something you can use in your daily life to grow your own discipline.

Join me in episode 13 and we examine the crucial answer to the question, “What’s at stake?”

In This Episode

In this episode, we talk about:

  • The growth of coaches to meet specific needs
  • Just because you can coach someone, doesn’t mean you should.
  • What my worst client (ever) taught me about my own coaching philosophy.
  • Get yourself unstuck by asking, “What’s at stake?”
  • Why your mindset matters more than just about anything else.

Welcome to the Mission-Critical Leadership Podcast! In this episode, we talk about three c’s to sustained success. We also talk about how you can implement these strategies into every area of life so you can be, do, and have it all!

Episode 8

This is episode eight of the mission-critical leadership podcast and we talk about the three c’s to sustained success.

I firmly believe that it isn’t just enough to win in one area of life, I want to win in every area of life. I want a life of excellence, and I work to provide that to my clients. In order to do that, I need to make sure that I’m working on getting the right things done.

To help, I practice three c’s to sustained success. Podcast Cover art for episode 8

First, I seek clarity. Clarity provides action. When I have clarity, I know how to create a plan to help me achieve my goals. Clarity is inspiring.

Second, I become committed. Once I know my destination clearly, I become committed to achieving it. I can’t just do the work when I feel like it, I have to do it every day. Commitment holds me accountable.

Third, I practice consistency. So what if I’m clear and committed if I don’t consistently put in the work? I’ll only reach half of what I set out to do. High performers know that isn’t good enough. Instead, they consistently put in the work and focus on the results, no matter the circumstances.

In This Episode

In this episode, we talk about:

  • These three c’s to sustained success
  • How to implement them in all areas of life
  • Common pitfalls and hurdles you will face
  • Handling the emotional joy of Monday (and the pain of Friday)
