The Wednesday Call Live! with Andy Albright 05/18/2016
The Wednesday Call (TWC) for May 18, 2016: Andy Albright returned this week to host The Wednesday Call live from The Alliance's headquarters after a two-week business trip with a select group of people who met with executives from Mutual of Omaha and Transamerica in Europe.
Earlier this week, Andy experienced a life-long dream by traveling in Alliance Air with N.C. State men's basketball coach Mark Gottfried, football coach Dave Doeren and women's basketball coach Wes Moore on Monday and Tuesday. The two-day trip ended at The Alliance's headquarters in Burlington, N.C. where the Wolfpack Club held one of its 10 Coaches Caravans.
Next week, Andy will be hosting a series of boot camps in Washington, D.C.; Detroit, Mich.; Chicago, Ill. and Cincinnati, Ohio. To get more details, visit www.NAAHotSpots.com to find out how you can attend one of these events.
Andy wanted to share two main points during this TWC.
The first item was helping people maximize their efforts and not minimalize their potential. Too many people are focused on hitting the minimum. The problem with this effort is that obstacles and hurdles will unexpectedly pop up that then limit you from even reaching those minimum results. Are you asking yourself, "What is the least amount of work I have to do to get something?" If you are doing this, please stop now. If you continue shooting for the minimal amount, you will never realize how great you can be in life. Championships and victories are not won by putting forth the least amount it takes to win.
People that don't reach their goals are likely guilty of not maximizing and performing beyond the minimum requirements. You have to push yourself to new heights all the time. When you are putting forth the maximum effort in everything you do, that is when you start to separate yourself from the average and move toward greatness. It is not easy. It does take discipline and effort. It takes work. It takes finding ways to make yourself push on even when you are tired, bored or at your breaking point.
Minimizing breeds mediocrity. It destroys passion. It sets your potential too low. It limits your dream. It limits what you can do. You cannot achieve excellence doing the minimum. Great leaders and visionaries never wanted to shoot for minimums. That would never work. The most effective people in the world complete tasks and they start looking for the next thing that needs to be done. Once they figure that out, then they start working on completing that task.
Your accomplishments are a direct result of the effort and work you put in on a daily basis. Success cannot be purchased, but it can be rented. The problem for most people is figuring out and realizing that the rent is due daily. It can only be paid in sweat equity and effort.
If you want to be an eagle you can't perform like a turkey. Eagles soar high and fly in the clouds.
The most successful people are never satisfied with where they are at in life. They keep pushing and doing more. They don't quit. They don't stop. They keep making things happen. God designed man to be great. He put in YOU all the tools you need to work until you reach your full potential. The maximum for each person is different. You can't judge your results against another man because that means you are letting somebody else set the bar for you.
There is nothing wrong with the person that is OK with where they are in life. They are comfortable. That's fine. Don't let that short-sided thinking impact your potential. It's OK to be nice to those people. However, you can't keep handing around those people or you will eventually start picking up that thinking and behavior.
Start thinking about how much you can do or the most you can do. Stop striving for the minimum. Blow past those little minimums and get so enthusiastic that you catch fire and explode to a point where you are doing things you never thought possible.
Remember that people who do what others are not willing to do are the most successful people in the world. They master the art of doing things to be successful on a consistent basis. They get the maximum out of their talents and work hard.
Self-minimalizing stifles human creativity. People who want to do more, give more and achieve more are the people you want to associate and spend time around. They are the people who win at life. Find a person who is doing and living the way you want to and follow them. Find ways to get around them and ask them questions. Chase them until you are at your full potential.
The people who don't listen to the status quo get rewarded. They get rewarded in a big way. When you think that way you are more excited about your potential. You were created for success and it is time for you to start thinking and acting that way. Start today!
If it takes X to get something then you be the person that does X plus one more than that, or five more than that! What's the most you can do by spending time around winners. Apply it to everything in life.
How can you get to EVP faster than you think? And, how can you do that in the most profitable way possible? The key to that is building depth and going as deep as possible. Andy believes that YOU can build your business as big as his in the next three years. When you have depth in your business, you have volume and you have a fire burning down deep. When you are selling, recruiting and building, then it is contagious. Building is a result of getting depth.
The key to building is focus.
