In all arenas of success there’s a small number of things that make the most difference.
If you get these things right, you massively move the needle in your favor, but there’s no such thing as a free lunch.
Doing these “hard things” often requires overcoming debilitating fears, and training yourself to do things other people won’t do.
Going After It
There’s a young guy in London who I’ve been giving my time to.
He’s very good at getting me to help him, and other leaders too.
Coming out of college he earned himself a top job, and already in his business of wealth management he is producing way beyond those years ahead of him.
I suspect that’s because he influences others the way that he influenced me…
He Reached Out
He wrote me an email.
He told me what he was about, how he was going after it, and asked me if I could be helpful to him.
You can see it in someone can’t you, when there’s something about them that just says I’ll do whatever it takes to make this happen.
That’s infectious to me, and I wanted to help him win.
And he is. He’s making it happen. And he’s only just getting started.
In his business, his willingness to reach out and ask for the order is a superpower that will take him a long way.
The Hardest Thing To Teach
Much of what we’re taught about motivation is WRONG.
Truth is, most of us have all the motivation we’ll ever need, it’s only, the fear is stronger, and holds all of us back.
