Let’s talk about 3 daily reflection questions for sustained (and repeatable) success!

Welcome to the podcast everyone, I’m your host, Justin Hiebert and I’m excited to have you along for episode 17! Our mission at #NextSteps Coaching is to help leaders resist and overcome burnout so they can leave a legacy of influence and impact on the world.

In this episode, we talk about the three daily reflection questions you need to ask yourself.

3 Daily Reflection Questions

Throughout coaching, we build in intentional times for reflection, growth, and refocusing. Where we put our attention sets our intention. If we want to have success in all areas, we need to get the details right. Success does not come from big breakthroughs but from implementing small, sustainable, and repeatable habits done consistently. Today, I want to talk about the three daily reflection questions you need to be asking yourself. Podcast cover art for podcast episode 17. White text on read background that says 3 daily questions for success

1.) What did I learn today? I also talk about the importance of The Medici Effect

2.) What am I grateful for? Expressing gratitude has been proven to have long-term physiological benefits.

3.) Where did I fail? When you fail, you create opportunities for improvement and growth.

In This Episode

In this episode, we talk about the three daily reflection questions for sustained and repeatable success. We will examine how (and why) these steps work, and the importance of integrating them into your daily habits.

Every day, we make decisions about who we are becoming. We have to realize that every yes requires a no. Every time we pursue one thing, we say no to another.

Learn how to discern how to say yes and no to the right things, on today’s episode of the Mission-Critical Podcast.

Every Yes Requires A No

What do Benjamin Franklin, Jesus, and Dwight Eisenhower have in common? They all gave speeches on how to appropriately count the cost. Podcast Cover Art for Podcast Episode 16 titled Every Yes Requires a no

Franklin did so facing treason as he prepared to sign the Declaration of Independence stating, “We must all hang together or we will all most assuredly hang separately.”

Jesus told those that followed him to make sure they knew the cost of going to war. A complete transformation is not easy and it will require sacrifice. How will you know when it’s worth it?

Eisenhower issued his executive command order to encourage troops on the eve of the D-Day Invasion and commit them to the task at hand. Only good guys, willing to sacrifice it all, can stop bad guys bent on evil.

In This Episode

In This Episode, we talk about what is required of you when you realize that every yes requires a no:

  • What Franklin, Jesus, and Eisenhower can teach us about counting the cost
  • Abraham Lincoln’s premonitions and commitment to do it anyway.
  • 5 Factors to consider when you need to count the cost
  • And much more!

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.

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.

“What’s at stake?” Podcast Cover Art for Episode 13 and the title reads "What's at stake?"

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.
