Lionheart Laquinn talks to your host Erik Smith about cultivating the mentality that led to his success.
- Laquinn joined the military in order to provide for his son after becoming a father at age 17, and it taught him structure and leadership.
- We think about success selfishly, instead of viewing other people‘s success as part of our own.
- There is a difference between a mindset and a mentality: a mindset is short-term, a mentality is long-term.
- Laquinn gives an example where he takes on a mindset before a boxing match that he‘s going to destroy his opponent to amp himself up, but acknowledges it can‘t be his mentality or he would be an angry, violent person.
- He calls his mentality a 100% Mission Accomplished Mentality.
- Most people don‘t look inside themselves to become more successful because they don‘t believe success is there for them in the first place, which comes from inferiority complexes that develop over a lifetime.
- The mindset of abundance means understanding that you already have everything you need and are therefore successful, it‘s just a matter of deciding upon the level of success you want.
- He has an equation to define happiness for himself: Mind + Body + Spirit = True fulfillment and happiness, incorporating each of those areas into his morning routine.
- Investing in personal development is always worth it.
- He uses G.R.I.N.D. to stand for multiple acronyms, like “Get Real, I‘m Never Done.“
- The G.R.I.N.D. Academy is happening September 28-29, 2019, a 2-day workshop for non-profit owners, motivational figures and life coaches.
3 KEY POINTS:
A mindset is short-term and temporary to get you through a current struggle, but a mentality serves you in the long-term.
Cultivating a 100% Mission Accomplished Mentality and a mindset of abundance means believing you already have everything you need and are already successful, so your goal becomes self-improvement and serving others.
- If you focus on the health of your mind, body, and spirit, you will find more happiness and fulfillment in all areas of your life.
“Mindset is a temporary thing. It will get you over what you‘re going through now. A mentality becomes more of a lifestyle, where you‘re not only thinking about things that you could be doing, you‘re thinking about how everything affects you in total.“ –Lionheart Laquinn
“I‘m no prodigy, I‘m no enigma. I literally work for myself, year by year, to become who I am today and it‘s a process. It‘s worth it. Understand it‘s worth it when you go and take the extra steps to develop yourself.“ –Lionheart Laquinn
