The January Mindset is Passion First!!!
1. Focus on strengths - It is critical to play to your strengths in life, and to spend time doing the things you're best at in order to create the most value for yourself. It's important to know that your strengths are much more than just things you do well; they also involve situations in which you thrive and the people with whom you are at your best.
2. Explore your interests - When you like doing things, you do more of it, even in your free time. Doing these things more often, with a greater degree of focus, allows you to become great at whatever they are. When you are great at anything, the world notices, and you have greater value to others.
3. Make a stand - It is important that you play to your strengths and interests whenever possible. It is equally important that what you do is important to you and your life. What you do must matter to you.
4. Be authentic - Great dreams must start from within. To do something extraordinary, the dream must leverage your strengths and interest, align with who you are (your core values), and matter greatly to you. When all of this is in place, your are your most capable and will perform at your best.
