More on mindset!
I received lots of great feedback on the mindset article last week, so I'm rolling with it.
The topic: mindset traps that get in our way.
I'm noticing a trend with most mindset traps.
They're not real.
The underlying issue...
We're not worried about the prospect or client when we're trapped.
We're worried about ourselves.
Three new examples you gave me last week:
They're all wrong.
The more I get into mindset the more I realize we're our worst enemy.
We're the ones in the way.
Here's what I mean using these three:
As I reflected on the great replies I got, I thought of something even deeper.
It's a trend in ourselves.
A trend that, once you know it, changes everything.
And I'll give it to you below...

If you're interested, reply, and we'll tell you more.
So, what did I realize in reflecting on all the great examples you sent last week?
It's something really deep in all of us.
Most of our mental traps involve us worrying about ourselves.
We're worried about our own self-worth.
That worry causes hesitation. It gets us stuck. It halts our progress.
But here's the thing.
Your self-worth is tied to your long-term values.
Being kind, proactive, and helpful.
Your self-worth is NOT tied to whether an email gets replied to or not.
If you find yourself hesitating, you're likely subconsciously connecting your self worth to a mentally invented bad outcome.
Pro tip: If you find yourself using extreme words like "I can't," stop yourself in your tracks.
Words like I Can't comes from a place of fear.
It really means I can.
You just need to unlock your mind.
This is not about you. You don't have to be perfect.
Focus on being otherish.
Focus on being helpful.
Focus on a campaign of helpfulness, not a one-time interaction.
Do that, and you'll unlock.
I can't means I can.
Remember that the other side's expected response doesn't reflect your values or self-worth.
Your actions do.
