Awake9MOJO Key factorsMOJO is impacted by four key factors:
Identity Who do we think we are?
Achievement What have we done lately?
Reputation Who do other people think you are and what have you done lately?
Acceptance What can you change and when do you need to just let it go?

12# 1 IdentityYou discover your identity by simply answering the question:
Who do you think you are?
13# 1 IdentityIdentity is a complicated subject, and we make it even more complicated were not sure where to look for the answer.14# 1 IdentityThe further you go back into your past, the greater the chances that your Remembered Identity doesnt match up with who you are today.15Identity16PASTSELFOTHERSFUTURE16# 1 IdentityEven if your Reflective Identity is accurate, it doesnt have to be predictive. We can all change!17# 1 IdentityIf you change your behavior, but not your identity, you may feel phony or unreal, no matter how much you achieve.18# 1 IdentityTo change your MOJO, you may need to either create a new identity for yourself or rediscover an identity you have lost.19Achievement
2020#2 AchievementYou discover your achievements by simply answering the question:
What have you done lately?
21# 2 Achievement Both Professional and Personal MOJO are connected to achievement, just two different types of achievement.Personal MOJO is what the activity brings to you.
Professional MOJO is what you bring to the activity.22# 2 AchievementProfessional MOJO
Gratitude P. 26&272323# 2 Achievement Achievement makes others aware of our ability. It happens every time we do something thats measured or rated by someone else.24# 2 Achievement In some cases, peoples self-assessment of how they do a job is more meaningful to them than what their superiors think.One of the biggest mistakes high achievers make is in overestimating their contribution to a success.25# 2 Achievement If you want to increase your MOJO, you can either change the degree of your achievement or change the definition of your achievement.Influence up as well as down. Both are important to achieve something significant.26Reputation
28# 3 ReputationYou discover your reputation by simply answering the question:
Who do people think you are?
29# 3 ReputationA key element in protecting your reputation is taking preventative medicine to ensure it doesnt get damagedYou cannot create your reputation by yourself (the rest of the world always has something to say about it), but you can influence it.30# 3 ReputationWe confuse our need to consider ourselves smart with our need to be considered effective by the world.Were so invested in presenting ourselves as smart that we dont hear everything that people tell us.31# 3 ReputationAfter all, whats more frustrating than believing youre smart, yet being powerless to impact a world that believes you are not?Choosing to be effective rather than smart ultimately pays off in your reputation, your achievement, and your MOJO,32Perspective33
33# 3 ReputationThe connection between your reputation and your MOJO should be self-evident.
A negative opinion is usually left unexpressed rather than shared.When other people see a pattern of resemblance, thats when they start forming your reputation.
34# 3 Reputation35
35# 3 ReputationOnly when you demonstrate your effectiveness in handling crisis after crisis will your reputation for shining at crunch time take shape.
One event cant form your reputation. One corrective gesture cant reform your reputation either.36# 3 ReputationYou need a sequence of consistent, similar actions to begin the rebuilding process of your reputation.Do it right the first time, and you may never have to change your ways.37# 3 ReputationBy impacting your reputation you can impact your MOJO.Having a great reputation in an area that matters in your life makes MOJO maintenance more of a joy than a chore.38Acceptance - USS Montana
39# 4 AcceptanceYou discover acceptance by simply answering the question:
When can you let go?
40# 4 AcceptanceWe believe that achieving a goal will somehow make us happy, conveniently ignoring the fact that the goal line always moves slightly beyond our reach.Worrying about the past and being anxious about the future can easily destroy your MOJO.41# 4 AcceptanceWhen everything around us seems confusing, acceptance reminds us what really matters.You dont have to like them, agree with them, or even respect them. Just accept them for being who they are.42# 4 AcceptanceChange what you can and let go of what you cannot change.Name it. Frame it. Claim it.43Stealing Our MOJO
44MOJO KillersWhen you have high MOJO, you have more opportunities. That is a good thing, but if you get carried away, that might be what kills your MOJO.Dont over commit. Before replying with an enthusiastic yes to the next request, think of the long-term impact on your MOJO,45MOJO KillersThe key question to ask all the time:
What path would I take if I knew that the situation would not get better?46MOJO KillersWhile our minds need order and fairness, much of life is neither fair nor just. Thats a problem for many of us and is a MOJO killer.You had to invest a big piece of yourself in your work.
That investment may have stopped paying off without you being aware of it.47MOJO Tool KitGetting and keeping MOJO is not an overnight activity. But you can get it and keep it, Brick by brick.Changing You is not preferable or easier than changing It (and vice versa). The best approach depends on the situation.48MOJO Tool KitIt is your life.
