Does it really matter?

You’ve probably heard me, and others, talk about mindset. Does it really matter?

Without the right mindset, skill loses its impact. Without the right mindset, you might be leading your team in the wrong direction. Without the right mindset, you might end up settling and becoming complacent. Without the right mindset, you may be doing more harm than good.

We spend a lot of time, money and energy acquiring college degrees, certifications and skill sets. All of those things may be important to you and even critical for you in your business. What about your mindset? How much do you work on developing your mindset?

Let me share a story that demonstrates how much it matters.  A few months ago, I shared some insights about the Passion First mindset on air with Life 97.9. Shortly after, we received an email from someone who listened, took the message to heart and opened up her mind to new possibilities:

Life-changing for her

In her email, the young woman shared that she had been sexually abused as a young teen and became pregnant. “Because of that conversation I have switched my educational goals. I was in school for business and I’ve made the switch to social work. My goal is to work with teenage girls or young moms in crisis situations…I want to use my life to help others get through their dark times. The message that day really hit me. It made me realize I was not doing what God put me on earth to do.  I’m so excited for my educational path. I am just getting started, I have a long way to go, but I know with God all things are possible!!”

Life-changing for me

When I went on-air to share The 7 Mindsets, I really thought it would be great ‘awareness’ for people. Little did I know that a short conversation could change someone’s life. We all ask ourselves the question, “Does what I do matter?” It does. Every day we each are making an impact.

“No work is insignificant. All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.”

~Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire.”

~Catherine of Siena

 “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters”

~Colossians 3:23
