The Wednesday Call Live! with Andy Albright 09/23/2015
The Wednesday Call (TWC) for September 23, 2015: Andy Albright hosted The Wednesday Call live from National Agents Alliance headquarters in Burlington, N.C. in front a full house to help kick off this week's Instant Thunder event.
Andy opened the show by playing a phone interview he conducted yesterday with author and speaker John C. Maxwell, who was announced as the keynote speaker for The Alliance's National Convention in January in Raleigh, N.C.
Maxwell let members of The Alliance know that he was excited to see them in a few weeks and encouraged them to be there to see him and the other leaders of The Alliance. Maxwell announced his new book "Intentional Living" will be released on Oct. 6. He said people have to learn how to live life intentionally.
"Intentional living is a result of intentional thinking," Maxwell said of getting the most out of life.
Maxwell told the audience there were three things they should do before NatCon16. He told them not to show up alone, but rather bring your team. He asked them to read his new book before January. Lastly, he asked them to set a big goal for 2016 to start working on.
Maxwell said his goal for 2016 is to add value to people every single day.
Albright covered various contests, events and trips that are coming up as we close out 2015 and head toward 2016.
This episode's main teaching point dealt with the four things you need to know about emotion and the four Rs to control your emotions.
The number one truth is this: emotions are a lie. People buy in to the emotion, but the truth is the commitment they have made. People make decisions when they are emotional, but what happens when the emotion goes away is what matters the most. Your action after the emotion is gone is what is most important.
You can't get mad at yourself because of your emotions. All people have emotions. You have to get over this. Be angry, don't sin. Be mad, but don't act on it.
People can divorce actions from emotions. People that can do that live a greater life. Practice getting really good at making logical decisions and not emotional decisions.
We are supposed to help people restrain from their emotions. We can tell people to exercise restraint from their emotions. Learn to live under control. We all have a choice when we make decisions.
Here are the four Rs to control
Refuse to react. Don't react to feelings. Great life comes through great decisions. Pray about it before you do it. Tell your feelings to shut up and control your actions. It takes practice, but it works if you keep doing it.
Replace emotions with truth.
Your legacy is how you deal with people, how you act on truth and what you do. Faith is in the front of feelings on the inside. You can't control what other people do. You have to act on faith and back it up with action.
A great truth barometer is action. What are you doing? You can measure where you are based on your activity. In our business, truth barometers are phone calls, meetings, watching TWC, listening to NAActivity Call, reading books, listening to audios, etc.
Truth barometers and the decisions you have to make determine where you are in life. We've all heard it said, "the truth shall set you free." That comes from the book of John. What it means is that it will set you free from the tyranny of emotions. It is freedom.
