The Wednesday Call Live! with Andy Albright 01/25/2017
The Wednesday Call (TWC) for January 25, 2017: Stephen Davies filled in as guest host of this week's The Wednesday Call while Andy Albright was traveling for business meetings in Florida. Coming out of the "Great American Dream Machine" NatCon17, The Alliance is poised for huge growth moving forward in 2017.
Davies' topic for the show focused on using six keys to stay in the fight, no matter what!
How do we stay in the fight? How do we keep going?
You are not going to succeed because you are destined to win. You will win because you stick with it and keep working at what you are doing. You will succeed because you are determined to win. Mark Twain once said that "repetition is a stronger argument than truth." Life is not a marathon, but rather it is a series of short races. Win the short races. Do it one month at a time. If you keep winning short races, then it becomes habit and you keep winning.
You have to fight for the good stuff in life. It doesn't just happen. You have to go through the "junk" sometimes if you want to enjoy a greater life.
What happens when you are faced with adversity? If you push through the adversity, you will eventually reach the victory or the sweetness of success. If you quit, you won't reach your goal. If you never quit, you will eventually get to where you want to be. Too often, people quit right before they are about to enjoy a breakthrough. Why? They get bitter, frustrated, etc. If you can stay focused and keep fighting, you will get through adversity.
Are you disciplined enough to finish the job? If you are trying to kill a bear, then you are not going to quit until the bear is dead. You can't stop until you finish the job. Too many people quit before they are done. Adversity is a lot like a bear if you lose that fighting spirit it is going to hurt in the end.
When you start a task, know that things will not always be easy. Make a commitment that you will finish the job. Set big goals. It might take everything you have inside you, but you can finish the job. It will never take more than you have, but it might take all that you have to get the job done.
Why do people give up on their goals?
They don't taste any success early. No results. If everybody could get instant gratification, then everybody would do it. It would be easy.
It is a process and there are principles involved in getting results.
Do you have a discouragement plan? Life is not going to always be easy. You need a plan. Do you have a person you can talk to about it when you hit a road block? People need people. They need people who can cheer them on and encourage them.
You have to have a plan. You can't let momentum killers stop you from succeeding. You have to make the decision now that you are not going to let anything stop you from reaching your goals and dreams. They will put in the work that other people are willing to do in order to live a better life. Now, this doesn't mean you only do the minimums and that's OK. It involves going above and beyond when you need to because that's how you push yourself to greater heights and destinations. Don't get impatient about the destination because you will get frustrated. Learn to enjoy the process and the journey. It is about the experience along the way. It will change your perspective. Success should not be about the destination. Don't cruise through life. There is so much more you can do if you choose not to cruise. There is always another goal out there. Don't catch destination disease.
The desire to avoid pain. People don't like getting hurt, but part of getting where you want to go will involve growing pains. Remember that the pain is temporary. The small pains you have to endure are easier to go through than the agony of giving up and quitting on yourself. Fighting through adversity is what makes succeeding that much sweeter. It makes your victories more special.
Don't seek out comfort from people who will not make you better. Don't make the mistake of letting others tell you that you are not capable of great things in life. People who do that are actually holding you back from achieving. Don't seek out commandment from people when you know that you are not doing what you are supposed to do or you are underperforming. People like that are not helping. Seek out people who will inspire you to keep pushing. You have to stretch yourself if you are ever going to reach your full potential. Let people stretch you rather than squash you. Don't be around firefighters who will put your desire out, look to find firelighters to help you keep growing.
The man who can bare his "Why" can handle or learn the "How." Look back through history, and you will see great people knew their "why." Keep working to make your "why" as crystal clear as possible. As you do that, continue taking action and watch as your "belief" tank gets full. Being idle and not doing the things you need to do will empty your tank. Get up, get moving and take action. Keep going.
Nobody can make you feel anything for longer than you want to feel. You get to decide where your emotions are at. You control what you feel and think. It is all in your mind. Yes, you will get emotional at times. You have to work on limiting the amount of time you are emotional. You can flip the switch whenever you want to if you practice it.
Purpose. When you operate with an on-purpose focus, you don't worry about circumstances or convenience. People with a purpose don't let obstacles stop them from getting to where they want to go. When you have a clear purpose, you are more likely to go beyond where you thought possible. Get on purpose!
Swear off excuses! Don't use excuses. If you are doing it, the time to stop is right now. Blame, justify and make excuses ... you can't do that stuff. Don't exercise those things. They will kill momentum. If you want to do big things, you can't let excuses creep up on you. They are numbing ointments.
Focus on your track record starting NOW. Don't live in the past. The past is the past. Make today count. Don't think about yesterday. Move forward. Don't let other drag you down in the mud with them. Speak what you want to happen out loud. Tell the world. Hold yourself accountable.
Living beyond yourself. There is stuff deep inside you that you didn't know you had inside you. The power you have to help people will blow your mind. People need you to do more than just help yourself. Don't be afraid to help other people realize they can be better. Help people when you have the opportunity to do so. You can help change people's lives if you care enough to help them. It can be big or small, but make the effort to help people.
Turn obstacles into opportunities. Don't seek out shortcuts. Don't give up. Don't quit. Laugh at adversity. Play hard and live beyond yourself. Make it part of the greater mission you are on. Stay in the fight no matter what.
