In this episode, Mike and Jody continue their discussion on the topic of mindset and discuss internal versus external locus of control.

Key Takeaways:

  • Internal locus of control - you are able to look at situations and say “I understand what happened and I can go accomplish what I need to accomplish.”
  • External locus of control - things tend to happen to you
  • There are things we can control and things that are outside of our control. When we understand the difference between the two, we can go forward and make a positive impact on the things we can drive directly.
  • Look for the specific things you can do to influence a positive outcome.
  • Lean on your network.
