The Wednesday Call Live! with Andy Albright 10/04/2017
The Wednesday Call (TWC) for October 4, 2017: On this episode of The Wednesday Call, Andy Riddle and Chris Long fill in as your guest hosts while Andy Albright is traveling on business this week in Florida. Today's show topic is Better, Faster, Farther.
Riddle and Long will share four sure-fire methods that will help you succeed 100 percent. When you are working with new people, you want to help them get moving better, faster and farther as soon as possible. If you know what the right things are then you want others to duplicate those same actions and behaviors. Doing this helps us all become the best version of ourselves as we move along. In Andy Albright's "Inside The Circle," we learn what makes a people move.
When you have a new person, you want to find out quickly what they want. Then, your job is to help them get it. This starts with you asking them, "What do you want?" You should know what you want too. You need to know what you want before you start helping others get what they want. One thing Andy tells people is that they are not allowed to quit. People are allowed to ACT, make adjustments and act again.
During Hurricane Irma, Chris Long wanted to use the storm as a reason to remove a concrete stump that had bothered him for some time. He got his tools, supplies and resources rounded up, and he set about removing the stump. It was not easy. He got disappointed. He stalled briefly. Long wanted to fix that post, but he realized it was going to take more work than he had first thought. He accepted it and started digging again. His own mother even discouraged him from continuing the journey. Long kept working at it. His father saw him struggling, so he grabbed a shovel and joined the removal party. The party got bigger when Long's wife, cousin and even previously negative mom joined in the fun. People that wanted Long to quit earlier, saw he was making progress and wanted to help him get the job done.
During this ordeal, relationships got stronger and renewed. Long's team won and had a tangible result to show for the effort. They took what seemed like work and made it a fun challenge. There was a real sense of accomplishment when they finished the job.
People gain confidence from feeling like they belong to a community. It is important to feel welcomed. That's why community is one of The Alliance's 8 Core Values. When we feel like we belong to a group, and the group is doing well, we borrow confidence from the group and integrate it into ourselves. Why do so many people fight issues of self-worth? Why do they let it potentially sabotage their approach to success? Stop it!
When you feel like you are on a team, you take the focus off of yourself and put it on the team. When we are part of a team, we are more likely to see that we are capable of something greater than if we only see ourselves. When you have a team, you don't let the negative stuff sabotage what you are trying to do. We eliminate doubt. We are bigger together as a team than any one person could ever dream of being. When we have a team, we go "all in."
Through our community, we adopt values, beliefs, behaviors and actions. We also get results! We realize we matter and everybody matters. We see our confidence grow. We win bigger. We grow.
Emotions are so tricky. They make us human. Emotions allow us to feel empathy. Page 183 of "Inside The Circle" states "Our emotions affect our ability to perform and alter our behavior in every area of our life."
Emotions can also work against us. Negative emotions can get the best of us sometimes. They cause anger, sadness, hate, self-pity, etc. They can paralyze us. They cause us to lose our focus. They make us pout, rant, give up, etc.
Successful people know that how you behave is who you are. We have to learn to control our emotions. Leaders create a positive environment where people can work on learning how to control their emotions. It is easier for smokers to quit smoking when they are not around other smokers. You are a product of your environment so being in a positive setting makes you more positive.
Cohesion is all about sticking together. It means finding people that don't think they are entitled to anything. When you can assemble a group of people that don't expect something and don't feel like they are owed something, you can win big. The Alliance creates cohesion through HotSpots, relationships and community.
