How many times do you find yourself going through the day thinking about all the things you need to do? What if you didn’t have to do any of these things? What would you do?
I need to pay my taxes, so I don’t get in trouble with the government. How much do you enjoying paying your taxes? Are you excited about giving the government all that money?
What if paying taxes were about wanting to contribute so I can continue to enjoy the quality of life I love so much? How does that change your perspective?
Do you feel the difference between wants and needs?
The wants of leadership
It is human nature for you to find yourself believing you need to do something you don’t want to. This is the mindset of obligation.
At times, you will notice people you lead doing things out of obligation. What is it they believe which has them in obligation? Is it something in your words or actions?
You might have the satisfaction of knowing something is done, because of the obligation. However, in obligation people do just enough to get a check mark. When you operate from obligation, it is never about great results.
So, do you want them in a mindset of having to? Wouldn’t you want them doing something because they want to?
I want to.
You’ve got this.
