The Wednesday Call Live! with Andy Albright 02/01/2017
The Wednesday Call (TWC) for February 1, 2017: Andy Albright was live and in color for a brand new episode of The Wednesday Call live from AMP Studios at The Alliance's national headquarters in Burlington, N.C. this week, and he had a strong message for members of The Alliance.
Andy and a solid group flew up to Washington, D.C. to hold a boot camp on Monday and Chadwick Ray, Lorin Atkins, Steven Moore, Michael Lee, Kyle Von Stearns and Taylor Smith were on that trip and stayed in town to make an appearance on TWC.
Andy wanted to talk about vision on this episode. Vision is like a shower in that it doesn't last if you don't keep working on it. You have to be reminded to keep your vision in mind. The Alliance's vision is about P.I.E - Prosperity, Inspiration and Eternity. We think you can have incredible prosperity. We keep inspiring other people by putting our efforts back into people. It's not about the destination, rather it is about how far we can go and how much we can do.
The number 1 distraction when it comes to vision is opportunity. It is great to have opportunity, but when you have choices, options and decisions you have to stick to your vision to stay on the right path. Do you let distractions prevent you from working toward the bigger picture and vision.
Your vision is tied to your performance. Your actions are who you are. What you do is who you are. There are all kinds of opportunities. It can be career, investment, vacation, experiences or whatever, but if you waste your time in the wrong areas then the vision will be clouded. People with long-term thinking are truly those with a clear vision.
If you can picture what it will be like in the future, then you won't get emotional when emergencies come up. Time is an asset, but it can also be the worst enemy a person has in their life.
The number 2 distraction is criticism. The more successful you are, the more critics you will have in life. People are going to be upset by what you are trying to do or what you are accomplishing. Too many people let their critics dictate what they do or what they will do in the future. This can be very confusing and distracting to a person who is trying to achieve something that many other people cannot understand. The truth depends on the person and the situation, but you can never let the truth be what critics say when they don't have your best interest at heart.
You will always have opportunities to jump on, but you have to remind yourself of your vision and what you want your life to look like. You can't jump down every rabbit hole or you will never be successful. You need people to help you remember the vision. Distractions are energy killers. Are you sacrificing your vision for a temporary feeling, or are you taking dead aim on the target you have in mind?
Nothing brings out critics like a person with great vision. People will project what they think in your direction, even if it is opposite of what you believe or think. People with focus and passion will offend the masses. It is very rare for a person to have a true focus and passion. When people see that kind of vision in a person it will make them mad or set them free. It is up to each person to decide how they react. You can't worry about that because if you do then it will prohibit the direction you are heading in.
Making accusations about what people are doing is dangerous and can tear down a person. Rumors and innuendo can destroy vision. You can't get down in the mud with people that will start a rumor mill at the drop of a hat. When people go low, you cannot get emotional and react to their small thinking. Don't engage with people who practice gossip more than work ethic.
Stay focused on your vision and don't stop to counterattack a person who verbally attacks you, your character, credibility, etc. When you give in to other people's thoughts, you are getting off track. Don't make it your problem or part of your life. People will make mistakes and that's OK. Ignore the critics and let them know that in time, the results will prove what is right and wrong.
People think they are entitled to an explanation as to your behavior because they haven't seen it too many times in their life. Perhaps they are not willing to accept the truth. See that as an opportunity to show them, chase the dream and win. Win big!
You can't ride a bike to the top of the mountain with your team if you keep your foot on the brake. Hey, you can get to the top faster if you never tap the brake and keep pedaling. We don't have time for down time. Focus on A tasks that are important and that get us where we want to go. Success silences the critics.
Significance rules out the option of retreat. The Alliance is not backing up, it is charging forward. It is time to move forward. The vision is clear and we must remind each other, encourage each other and cheer the team on until we make it to the top.
