Events are the things that happen to you in life. How you respond shapes the outcomes you get in life.
This is particularly important when it comes to the perceived “bad” stuff that lands on us. If we become shocked by the volatility, uncertainty, complexity, & ambiguity in life then we become mentally vulnerable – negative emotions ignite – we feel justifiably angry.
Problem is that anger blocks cleverness – angryness isn’t associated with responsible decision making.
A performance mindset (& mental health) then starts with ACCEPTANCE – acceptance that “life is unfair.” If you can accept then there’s a chance we can respond with cleverness.
Our mindset matters. Skill & talent are nothing without the driving force of mindset - watch this video below.
