Mental Mastery Mondays

In every episode of the Mental Mastery Mondays podcast, I help my fellow misfits who feel lost in a corporate run world full of boring cubicles.

If you’ve always struggled to find success in school or business because you believe creativity trumps competitiveness and you refuse to settle for the doing things they way they’ve always been done, you’re going to love Mental Mastery Mondays.

I’m a firm believer the only way to make a lasting change in the world around you is to focus on making a lasting change to the world within you.  What you see happening in your life is the “effect,” what’s happening in your mind is the “cause.”

Trying to change the effect without changing the cause is like trying to polish an old rusty car.

Who is P. Desmond AdamsI Just Don’t Fit In

Some people seem to have it all. They have all of the talents and attributes our society values. Whether it’s in the classroom, out on the field, or in the office, their success seems to come naturally and they’re cheered-on by everyone around them…

… that’s not me. I’ve felt like a failure in every area, which seemed to really matter to those around me.

So, what can you learn from “a failure?”

For over 40 years I have been absolutely driven for success. Unfortunately, I did this in an environment in which I wasn’t designed to succeed.

In school, my parents were consistently told I was an underachiever who was capable of so much more if I would just spend time focusing on what’s being taught on the board and less time daydreaming.

At work, my performance evaluations always included a comment about needing to pay more attention to details and less time laughing and socializing with my coworkers.

In business, my mentors told me I needed to spend more time following through on my current goals and projects and less time coming up with new ones.

What Happened When I Gave Up on Success

It wasn’t until my late 30’s, frustrated and feeling like an absolute failure, that I decided to give up the chase for success and pursue the things which were always drawing me away from “my work” and giving me the greatest joy and fulfillment.

Ironically, it was at this point in my life when I finally started to hear words like “you’ve got what can’t be taught” and “others struggle to do what seems to come naturally for you.” Employers threw money at me in an effort to keep me on the team while co-workers looked up to me and asked for my advice and direction in their work.

It seemed like I went from being a failure to an unstoppable success without even trying.

Today, I’m driven to help others who feel like “failures” finally understand why it is they can’t seem to find success.
