18 Oct 129. Rep the Brand | MSLJ Episode From the Archive
In our latest episode, we are bringing you an archived favorite from the Mackey Speaks Leadership Journal.
Mackey is bringing us a message he heard from Coach Braxton of Howard Payne University while out on the West Texas Tour a few months ago. Coach said something that made Mackey grab his pencil and start writing.
Coach said that whether you excel or whether you fall short and don’t reach your goals, other people are going to identify you as a part of a team, and we will represent a team in our actions.
Key Takeaways from this podcast:
- You are a part of a greater team, so rep the brand well.
- In moments of anger, stop and count the eyes.
- Protecting your brand is not only a defensive posture, but it is an offensive posture as well.
Mackey encourages us to handle our anger, handle situations that may not be going our way well because there are people watching. We must continually remind ourselves to count the eyes. People will not only evaluate you, but they will begin to evaluate the brand that you represent, whether that is your team, your company, your faith, or your family.
If you are not okay with what you’re doing being in the light, then don’t let it live in the dark because what’s in the dark will eventually come to the light.
