Motivational Monday, September 14, 2020

Happy #MotivationalMonday (09/14/20) #MindSet Dr. Kevin Elko works closely with University of Alabama football team. He created the mindset of “So what? Now what?” that has become a huge part of the culture at Alabama. I believe we can all agree that life is not easy; it can be downright unbearable at times. We all wish it were as easy as reading the next motivational quote to put us back on track. In reality, it’s just not that easy. It takes a lot of effort, determination, and commitment to a process that creates a mindset and culture that leads to positivity and success. Dr. Elko points out that when people face adversity they tend to look into the past and play the blame game or look into the future that holds fear and anxiety. Instead, he suggests to focus on the “WIN”...What’s important now? In the “So what? Now what?” mindset, we have to come to terms with the “So” to be able to then focus on the “Now”. You don’t have success because you over came your adversity; you have success because you faced your adversity in the first place. Perspective is huge in life and we all choose our perspectives. We can dwell on negativity and sorrow, or we can begin to ask ourselves “So what? Now what?” The choice is ours.
