John Henry took a deep breath, picked up two sledge hammers, and sang this song:
“Ain’t no hammers
Strike such fire,
Strike like lighting, Lawd,
And I won’t tire!
“Hammers like this, Lawd,
There’s never been!
I’ll keep swingin’ ‘em,Lawd,
Until we win!”
Why Is The Mindset Important?
The mindset, mindset is so important in this business, in this life and in our efforts to conquer our fears of what we do not know about our untold capabilities. See, if we would just start to play an unusual trick with out minds, just for positive fun. I mean real fun where all the rules are laid out by nobody but you. You see we were made with this power by the creator. But somehow we lost the belief in our self and our vision and so we are no longer imaging.
John Henrys’ Mindset
Back to John Henry, a folklore legend but nevertheless in his story and in particular this song he is singing, is clearly a reflection of a mindset, ablaze with a strong desire to succeed, overcome. triumph, conquer, control, supersede, direct, change and I can go on and on. But without a proper mindset people, what have you got?
Well how do you do this, thought you would never ask. For starters it takes a very willing individual to cross to line in the sand and into living your dream. Have a clear mind to understand this quote from a Steven Seagal movie “Chance favors the prepared mind”. In this action thriller the villain had a back up plan for every challenge he face until he was finally taken out. Our mindset must be fortified in that same manor, no matter what challenge comes our way we have go to move on with a clear mindset totally removed from where we were stuck before and make something new possible just because we did not give in to the challenge at hand. Sounds like a lot right, but the truth be told that we burn out because we stand pat trying to figure or undo a situation that is completely out of our hands and those activities only deplete our mindset because we are failing to feed the mind new data. Excitement only comes forward when there is something new about to take place, even if it is a routine situation your mindset will allow you see something different to get excited about your business.
I remember when I was fighting with my ex-wife about having visiting rights for our son, Jameel. He was only 7 years old and I am sure was torn because his parents were not longer together. In my mind his mother was committed to making my life miserable and because I fed into that belief, she had me going. Back and forth in family court and I felt that since I was paying the child support, she was going over the top with the nasty stuff. I felt frustrated, helpless and much anger towards her. Until I and my wife Daria went to see a great friend of mine Jeff Noble. As he listened to my heart wrenching story, he stopped me and asked this simple question. “What would you be able to do if you were no longer angry with her”. Initially, I wanted to ask him what kind of #?!// question was that? But I knew that man was in his element and I was not, so I thought about it and the things came flying out one by one. That question forced me to look at what my righteous, hand me down principles were costing me in my life because my mindset was stuck on doing something I had no control over and that would eventually work itself out in time and not my time.
That very night I was able to release the upset, frustration and all that I made this mean. The results transformed my mindset, my relationship with my wife and children because I was no longer driven by that situation anymore. My mindset was free to built and direct a path toward where I am today with more to come.
Yeah, so swing your hammers straight, up, down and all around your brain to clear space for your mindset to flourish and take your business to new heights.
