“It ain’t the rain, the snow, the boss, the competition, the spouse, the money, the car, the job, or the kids — it’s you! And it always has been.” — Jeffrey Gitomer
The first person we have to lead is ourselves.
We have to own the outcome for all areas of our life.
This is called taking Extreme Ownership.
When we take Extreme Ownership, we change everything.
We no longer have our happiness dictated by circumstances.
We set the tone, not others.
But this mindset requires COURAGE.
Because when something goes wrong it’s on us.
There is no one else to BLAME.
Taking full responsibility can bruise your ego.
The BIGGEST threat to our own success is not some uncontrollable outside factor.
It’s our decision making process.
Don’t like the way things are going?
Not where you want to be?
We may not be able to control what happens to us.
But we have 100% control on how we respond.
Once we figure this out, everything else becomes easier.
