Your Identity Ideology

Who do you think you are?

No, really, who are you? I’m not talking about your name or the family you come from. What I’m asking is more of a heart level question.

Who do you believe yourself to be? What identification have you taken ownership of and established yourself as? How does your identity affect the way you live your life and relate to other people?

#247: Monday Mastery – The Relationship Law of Averages

Play

Welcome to our video blog and Monday Mastery Edition of our Strategic Leader Podcast with Brian Holmes! Each Monday, we provide a video & podcast audio segment designed to encourage, motivate, challenge, and develop you as a leader and influencer.

Jim Rohn says you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. Another saying goes “a rising tide raises all ships.” There is a law of averages according to our relationships! Quality, not quantity, in our connection and our relationships, is what spurs us on to our next levels in life. It is not only about who we spend time with, but what those people are thinking, doing, and practicing in their own lives. The same is true of us, and what we’re able to contribute to the people we surround ourselves with.

Watch the video or download and listen to our audio file as well. Join us every Monday for a new Monday Mastery Edition of our Strategic Leader podcast, and every Thursday for a new in-depth episode.

#246: When Victory Is The Only Option

burn the boats

We are creatures of comfort, craving the familiar and “normal”. We unconsciously defend – even rationalize – our positions and attitudes as a way of avoiding exposure or risk.

Most times, however, you have to leave safety and security behind and risk everything to commit your life and future to your unknown destiny.

How To Schedule Your Success

My schedule is my best friend and my biggest adversary.

There have been several times over the course of my week, I start off knowing the many things I need to do, the appointments I need to keep, the errands I need to run, etc. My mind knows all of it, but it doesn’t always keep track of it for me. There have been times I have completely forgotten about something, simply because it wasn’t written on my calendar.

This goes beyond forgetting, also. There are times I know something needs to get done, but I don’t make time for it. I know I need to dedicate time to writing, but I don’t block off time on my calendar for it, and I fill that available time with other activities.

Whoops.

This brings to mind a simple, yet profound practice: making my calendar work FOR me.

Concentration can be cultivated. One can learn to exercise will power, discipline one’s body and train one’s mind.

#245: Monday Mastery – The Investment Mindset

Play

Welcome to our video blog and Monday Mastery Edition of our Strategic Leader Podcast with Brian Holmes! Each Monday, we provide a video & podcast audio segment designed to encourage, motivate, challenge, and develop you as a leader and influencer.

Most people consider the “cost”, and everything they encounter is a consumable. What would happen if we shifted our mindset to an investment rather than a cost, and began to reap the returns from what we’re investing in? This is a critical and crucial shift in how we view how we can improve our influence and impact. Listen in and see if you agree.
