Ep.241 | 5 Minute Drill | Stop the Mindset That’s Stunting Your Growth

How does it make you feel when you have a much better understanding of something vs. the person or people around you? 

If you’re anything like me, you feel confident. You may even feel like your leadership got a jolt of fuel. If you’re really like me, you want to help those people around you understand at the same level you’re at. Bottom line, knowledge is power. You and I both know that.

But then why are so many people missing the opportunity to gain MORE power because their ego is saying, “You know this already. No need to dive deeper.” Surprisingly, it’s an enemy a lot of elite people face. In many cases, they’re losing the battle. Let’s not let that be you. 

In today’s 5 Minute Drill, we’re going to talk about how to protect yourself against the ego enemy – a growth and transformation killer. If you want more confidence to lock that enemy down when it tries to get you, then lock in to today’s Drill 

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • Differentiating harmful pride from healthy self-acknowledgement to foster personal and professional growth.
  • The pitfalls of the “I’ve heard this before” mentality and its impact on learning and development.
  • The importance of revisiting familiar concepts when it comes to your growth and development.
  • The role of neural connections and pattern recognition in reinforcing learning through repeated exposure.

Stop treating what you learned in the past as an END POINT…treat it as a STARTING POINT.” – J.R.
