(Story part 2of2) It’s possible for anyone, to go from nothing, no success, to achieving your dreams
So, picking up from my last video, I saw Dave Wood teach and actual strategy, I got excited, and I started following him.
But you know what, every single place I went I brought my stinking thinking with me, as the late and great Jim Rohn would have said it. I had this mentality that I didn’t believe that it’s possible for me. Oh I believed it was possible for Dave. And I believed that it was possible for people on his team. I could see other people within his team doing what he was teaching, and doing it successfully, but I would never actually take the action steps.
Dave’s been saying the same thing since 2009, which is get 2 signups a day. I was like I never got anybody.
I didn’t really believe it was possible. And because I didn’t believe it was possible I thought “if I do this, you know, if I try, it’s going to hurt really bad when I fail.” I don’t want to experience that pain of failure, because I’ve been there and it hurts! I never wanted to feel that feeling anymore, so I kind of stepped back a bit and stopped dreaming. And when I got here, to Empower Network, and I did the same thing again. I didn’t follow the steps, I was just sort of putting my toe in. And then came my first event, which was Fight the Forces of Evil in San Diego
Throughout that event I felt I was getting pulled in. I felt walls coming down. I was starting to believe that it may be possible for me. And then on the final day they were doing the giant checks, and people were parading with the giant checks, and I thought, hmm, what’s special about them, I can do this too!
And when I got home, slept for 2 days straight to catch up on sleep and fix the jetlag, and then I started taking action on purpose for the first time. I started to actually apply the 8 core commitments.
Something else that I’ve learned at my first event was that I’ve brought a lot of ego. I’ve learned that it’s not systems that fail. It’s people that fail. Because people insert themselves to the system.
OK, well, I’ve never actually done the 8 core commitments consistently, so why not just try? So I did. I started to do the 8 core commitments, and I blogged consistently for 1 month. In that 1 month I’ve recruited 3 people. Yeah! I was happy with that.
Then the 2nd month the ideas started to come, ideas that I’d implement straight away. I kept listening to audios, doing blogs, I kept putting stuff in and putting stuff out, and I kept going and going, and going. I’d write down a plan and I’d do it.
And lo and behold, the very next month I had a breakthrough in my business. It was awesome.
Sometimes you have to see it to believe it. Sometimes there’s a voice in our head saying yeah but. Yeah but the Dave is a genius. Yeah, but this leader or that leader has been successful before, he was successful over here, and he came over, and that’s why he’s successful.
We always have all these reasons, explaining our way out of believing that it’s possible for us. So I really wanted to show people that it’s possible for anyone, it’s possible to go from nothing, from nowhere, from no success, to achieving your dreams.
You, my friend, can do it too.
