—A Shot is a poignant leadership tip from “a rifle.” Yes, leadership coach, Tom Newhouse, uses a rifle from his farming heritage to “tell it like it is.” —
I HAVE SEEN IT TIME AND AGAIN. Those who tell themselves they are going to miss, do. Those who hit their target twice, hit it once. What? you say. Here’s scoop: Those who confidently approach the shot and who visualize a successful firing tend to actually hit the target. They score twice—in their mind and in reality.
Mindset determines success…well, a good deal of the time. It’s the power of thinking—affirmative thinking. If you think you can or can’t, you’re right. So let’s get on track. Try visualizing success—you being successful. Include visualizing the things you do to produce success. Right there you will discover a lot of things that will help you succeed, and, more importantly you’ll have “laid in a groove” to follow. Self-affirmation statements help too: Tell yourself what you will do when the time comes—what your attitude and actions will be. You’ll get past negative, self-defeating thoughts, and you’ll program your subconscious mind to guide to you to success!
