This Is What's Incredible

If you really knew Jimmie Johnson, you'd know...

Jimmie Johnson is not incredible.

Even if you’re not a fan of NASCAR, you probably know the name Jimmie Johnson. With seven NASCAR Championship Cup wins, he’s a modern-day legend in the sport and on a trajectory to have more wins than some of the best drivers of all time. Yet it’s not Jimmie’s talent that I want to share with you. It’s his character. I’ve gotten to know Jimmie in the last few years, and I was surprised to find that he’s talked about in the industry for far more than his great record. He gives back to his community (over seven million dollars!), is a continual learner, and serves as a humble leader on his team at Hendrick Motorsports.

Fred Smith once said, “The gift that you have is greater than you. You are not incredible. Your gift is incredible.” 

I believe Jimmie Johnson lives and works with the mindset that he is not incredible, rather his gift is incredible. He recognizes that it’s his responsibility to grow and develop his gift to its full potential. His character protects his talent and allows him to build upon what he already has. In order for you and me to protect our talent, we must invest in what is hidden below the surface.

Perhaps that’s a very different message than the one some of us were taught growing up. Character might not appear to earn us recognition or reward, though it’s certainly important if we want to make the most of our talent.

I recently shared two of my Four Dimensions of Great Character. I want to challenge you with this idea today as we explore two more dimensions to great character. The third and fourth dimensions of great character will push you to look beyond your pride and to determine if you’re living in such a way that makes you bigger on the inside than you are on the outside.

Are you a person of character? Let’s find out.

THE TAKEAWAY

Let’s review. Earlier this month I shared two dimensions of great character: (See it by clicking here)

  1. Be authentic.
  2. Manage your weakness.

Today I’m going to give you the remaining two dimensions to help you evaluate your character and take action on honing it as you develop the leader within you.

  1. Practice humility. Staying humble requires that we have a keen awareness that we are simply human at our core. While we each have a great capacity, we should always be mindful of our humanity, our shortcomings, and our areas of weakness. The more we accept our human condition or tendency to make mistakes, the quicker we can earn the trust of others and move forward when we fall flat. Funny thing about humility. Just when you think you've got it, you've lost it.
  2. Act with courage. This dimension is what makes character possible. When have you ever learned something that really stuck with you by getting off easy? Never, right? Everything worthwhile is uphill, my friend. It takes courage to go the journey and accept the inevitable challenges that await you.

When you live by these four dimensions, your character will deepen. Your trust with others will strengthen. You will start becoming bigger on the inside than you are on the outside.

Emerson reflected-
"People tend not to see that their opinion of the world is also
a confession of their character."

If the world is your mirror...what's your reflection today?

NOW IT'S YOUR TURN

Character is not something that develops in a microwave. This is a slow cooker process. You’ll need to be consistent and reflective in the ways you communicate, how you handle change and stress, how you approach wins and losses.

When you evaluate your past behavior as a leader at home or in your job, are you authentic? Are you managing your weakness? Are you humble? Do you act with courage when difficulty arises? 

Overall, strong character shows that who you are and who you appear to be are one and the same. As leaders, we must communicate consistency to our team. With that evenness, we have the opportunity to make a greater impact on those around us. Ultimately we not only strengthen our gifts and get better results, we increase the success of those we influence as well.
