Here is what you tell yourself….
My boss does not inspire me.
(In your mind this is the root problem).
He/she does not motivate me or get me excited.
(In your mind you believe this is holding you back).
I would work harder, smarter, faster, with more passion if he or she did (fill in the blank).
(You believe you would do things differently if only your boss would…..)
I lived this way for a lot of years. And then one day, I fired my boss from the responsibility of motivating, inspiring or inviting me to do great things.
Hire yourself for the role of inspiration, vision, passion, creativity and gratitude.
