Power of a P4R Mindset

P4R (planning, preparation, persistence, perseverance and resilience) is another key part of the F(X) philosophy and leadership model. Being the best in your life, career or leadership requires a P4R mindset.
Planning is the process of developing actions or plans to attain your desired goals or outcomes for your life or leadership. When making your plans consider …what you truly want to accomplish and what effects are needed to achieve your outcome.
Preparation is process of equipping and focusing yourself on achieving your plan. You must have the right mindset and focus to carry out your plan successfully. Roman philosopher Seneca said that “Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.” Make yourself lucky by being prepared.
The objective of persistence is to achieve a goal or outcome in your life. Persistence allows you to keep working at your goal or outcome it until we reach the desired outcome. It is pressing on towards the goal despite all odds. Persistence permits us to attain victory when others have long abandoned the journey.
Perseverance is to endure a difficult situation with resolute determination and to stay in a situation even when we would rather give up even though it is difficult. John Quincy Adams said, “Courage and perseverance have a magical talisman, before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into air.” Perseverance requires our entire emotional, physical, and spiritual forte to tolerate or overcome the situation. By persevering and not giving in you gain strength in your life and leadership.
Resiliency is keeping strong emotionally, physically, mentally, and spiritually to be fit, healthy, positive, and prepared for all life’s challenges. When you have a firm understanding of your life’s purpose, you are more resilient to adversity.
You must make your mind up from the very beginning of the journey to plan and prepare for the journey. Know where you want to go, then plan and chart out the journey. The road to building yourself is demanding, so prepare yourself mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally for the journey.
Green Bay Packers Coach Vince Lombardi said that success is being your very best.–“The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.”
