Do you have an internal bulletin board?
What I mean is do you have a space in your mind where you have tacked up all of the criticism you’ve received in your life?
I have one. And most competitors or high achievers have one as well.
Our internal bulletin boards can provide fuel to help us succeed both professionally and personally. But there is a cost with using this method as our motivation.
In this Your Leadership Coach video, I share what’s on my bulletin board, why it is dangerous for leaders and high achievers to use this type of motivation, and I offer a better “fuel” that we can use to drive us to success and the accomplishment of our goals.
- Who is on your bulletin board?
- What critics are you still listening to?
- Acknowledge them (and maybe tell a friend) – lean into them.
- Replace with them with your successes and future goals
