— 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 LEARNED THAT IF I WAS TO BE SUCCESSFUL I had to shoot every target twice…with one shot. Here’s the deal: The mind is a powerful controlling device. If my shooter just fired after sighting in, we often missed. But when that shooter envisioned the shot and an accurate hit, and then squeezed the trigger, we were usually “on target.” Mindset, winning the war within, visualization, vicarious pre-success, subconscious alignment—call it what you want—it’s true, it works.
Hey leaders, here’s the point. Affirm your plans, and visualize success to yield desired achievements. To be real successful visualize the actions you will take to attain success. You will find something rich in this patterning activity. In many ways, you will train yourself to automatically do what is necessary to actually produce the results you want. Hitting the mark mentally first gets you aligned subconsciously to hit the mark for real. You will be shooting it twice.
