Hi Team-Β 

This was a message I wanted to share with you...

I see it daily and wanted to talk about it.... the difference between a winning mentality and a losing mentality...

One of the biggest differences I see between Winners and Losers is a very clear difference in mindset.

π™’π™„π™‰π™‰π™€π™π™Ž : Very open, want to learn, hungry, excited, passionate, creative, always looking to push for what is next-better- possible, very coachable and eager for feedback.

𝑳𝑢𝑺𝑬𝑹𝑺 : Closed minded, know everything, have a reason why things will not work before even taking a chance, put people down, shun ideas and the creative process, have no tolerance for the ideas of others, and un-coachable- can not handle feedback.

The difference between the two is clear.

It is easy to see.

Openness is a gift to yourself.

When we live our lives closed to possibilities- what kind of a life do we live?

How does that shape how we think and see things?

I can remember being around Derek Jeter- the best of the best- and he would always be open to the thoughts and opinions of others so he could make the most informed decisions.

Through the years, I have also been so impressed with those that I coach...

They are the best of the best, but constantly are looking for more knowledge, more push, and more!

It is a real winning trait.

Anyway, some morning thoughts to share!

Speaking of winners- I sat down with former MLB player, Brandon Guyer to talk about the Major League Mindset. Click here to listen.

Ok- go out and win today!!
