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).
