Are you too good to be great?
When you adopt a winning mind focus (WMF) you spark your mind and improve your odds of success. No car inhales its exhaust and goes far. You need fresh air. You need an independent person to look into your plans and challenge you to not just do better but win.
Today I received very good news. One of the executives in my Executive Support Program (ESP) just got a letter of offer for a CEO role in one of the most dynamic markets in the region: Kenya. It’s good to help folks succeed.
After facilitating a strategic planning session, one of the middle managers approached me and said, “Mustapha I love your confidence and ability to be in charge of the room. When the Chairman is in the room, everyone is so uncomfortable. Worried and afraid to speak. But when they invited you to present, we got hooked right away. I want you to teach me how to become a pro like you.”
I love challenges especially from bold people who know what they want. The fact is if you do not take a deliberate effort, you will stagnate in your operational or middle-level job for ages. And think about it. Why do some people tend to rise quickly through the ranks while others tend to stagnate in lower and middle levels for eternity?
The winners take a step to become better continuously through getting close to the seat of power, networking and going an extra mile. Finding a support group or a senior person to guide you is a step towards your aspiration.
