So this past week-end, I attended Mike Litman’s Building Your Coaching Empire Seminar, and I had no idea what to expect, but it was fantastic!
This was his first in 3 1/2 years, and boy did I find out just at the right time, because what a shame to have wanted to build a coaching empire, and find out he wasn’t doing it for that long.
I learned concepts that rocked my world. Fast delivery, and content rich, as we jammed about 4 days of information into 2.
Then, in a dream come true moment when I spoke for about 20 minutes to the audience about my entrepreneurial journey, on becoming a bestselling author, and then it opened up to Q&A. Spectacular being on stage with Mike Litman, and when I was told it would appear on a DVD as well, how awesome is that!
I was asked one question that I could see had the biggest impact, so I wanted to share my answer with you:
“What is the biggest advice you would give?”
And my answer is what Mike had been saying all week-end, and that was just do it. Mike says “You don’t have to get it right, you just have to get it going”. This is what unleashes your greatness.
Here is an example of one of my weeks that exemplifies this point, and the difference it makes in your life.
Dec. 21st – Read about how to do a teleseminar, decided I wanted to do one.
Dec. 21st – Contact Larry Hall, creator of Traffic Hurricane, and ask if he wants me to interview him for a teleseminar. I’ll set everything up, squeeze page, autoresponders, email invitiation announcement, follow-up autoresponders, write the script, and send it to him. He says no. I ask why? His answer isn’t good enough, so I bug him until Dec. 26th until he says okay.
Dec. 26th – I do everything I said, and the email blast goes out.
Dec. 27th – I learn how to run the phone system, write the script and practice for flow and timing. I am using a free service, so I also figure out how to record it from my computer.
Dec. 28th – Larry joins me for a practice run an hour before the start time, there is already somebody on the call listening. We ask him to come back, and release him from the call.
Dec. 28th – Me and Larry Hall conduct my first teleseminar, as I play host and interview him. We close sales, and Larry sends me money immediately. I send him the .mp3 recording of the teleseminar.
I have my first teleseminar experience, and a product.
I could have relaxed that week, after all it was Christmas. But I read about a skill that was very important to this industry, and I needed to apply it for real. So I did, and it paid off for me, and for Larry, and then Location Bank Of Valdosta I wrote an eBook out of my experiences because it went so smoothly, because ANYONE can do it.
He had wanted to do a teleseminar for 2 years, and never did it. I wanted to do one for 15 minutes, and made it happen, in fact almost forced him to do it. Is there anything in your life that you aren’t doing right away?? If yes, find out why!!!
That is called action. When you want to do something, just do it, or your list of I want to do it will just grow to infinity, and then overwhelm you to a state of paralysis.
Read it or listen to it, and then do it. It is that simple, and that is how I have been so successful. I don’t wait, I make it happen, and if I have to persuade someone else to jump aboard along the way, I do that too.
I want everyone to succeed with whatever their dreams are, and standing on the playing field watching the action isn’t the way it works. Take one thing you haven’t done, and do it RIGHT NOW! You have to think like an entrepreneur, so every day say to yourself “If I was my employee, would I be pleased with my progress today?” Be the CEO of you and your company, and just do it.
