What Are Your Mindsets?

Good morning. Still cold here in NE Indiana – we are so ready for Spring!!!Lauren - sunlight MAR 2013

What are your mindsets? Or maybe a better question is what are the attitudes with which you approach life?

I am involved in an interesting project here at Ambassador Enterprises where we are working to identify the core 20% of what makes the AE culture unique. One area that we identified was this area of Mindsets / Attitudes and we believe that there are three core attitudes that are important to our culture:

1. Trust – there has to be trust, which is a choice, before you truly have effective relationships, effective community, and high performing teams. It is a choice and it is an attitude in which you approach others. Trust is something that has to be intentionally developed and maintained.

2. Dependency – this is not dependency in the unhealthy sense, this is the realization and living out that fact that we are not truly independent actors in life, but that we are dependent upon God and others in life. We need others and others need us – in a very healthy and real way.

3. Humility – humility and dependency are closely tied together. Humility is the opposite of pride and arrogance. Humility recognizes that we aren’t superior to others, that others have great value in God’s eyes, that we are incomplete and flawed, and that we are in need of God’s grace, His help and the help of others and that we still have much to learn.

I have found these attitudes to be helpful. What are the attitudes or mindsets that guide your life?
