CEO: The Disposition Is More Important Than the Position, with Andy Frisella - MFCEO223
Whenever I tell people that they need to carry themselves with confidence and act like the MFCEO of their own lives, I always get someone who says something like this: “That’s easy for you to say, Andy. Because you really are a CEO. It’s easy to walk around with some swag in life when you actually hold a position with some status.” They don’t get it. The disposition comes before the position. In this episode, I explain what that means and why it’s critical to your success.
What can you learn about business from two guys from Tupelo, Mississippi? A lot. Josh West & Nick Weaver are two of the most incredible entrepreneurs I’ve met in a long time! They were best friends as kids & are now the founders of Blue Delta Jeans, a company that makes the best blue jeans I've ever worn in my life! We talked about their story, their struggle, & the lessons every entrepreneur can apply. You're not just going to learn a lot in this episode. You're going to laugh, too. A lot.
If you could take a time machine back to your biggest win in life…would you? If you’re thinking “Of course! I'd love to rocket back to Yesteryear to relive the Glory Days," then your chances of being a real success in life are probable zero. ZERO. Truly successful people have a completely different mindset. They are guided by a major rule in life: The 24-Hour Rule of Bragging. This rule protects you from mediocrity and helps you move on from massive mistakes.
Just "winning" isn't enough. "Winning" doesn't earn you glory or the right to brag. You have to DOMINATE. That's the mentality you have to have to truly be successful on an elite level...& this isn't an ego thing, either. It's not about just trying to prove you are way better than somebody else. It's not about feeling good because you decimated your competition. It actually has to do with YOU...your potential..& whether or not you die feeling proud of how you lived.
