7 Tips to Go From Mediocrity to Magnificent

7 Tips to Go From Mediocrity to Magnificent

Here are a few thoughts on going from Mediocrity to Magnificent.

1) Begins With a Significant Emotional Experience

Jim Rohn called it the day that turns your life around! Btw, I will be quoting a lot of Jim Rohn (my 18 year biz partner) in this. It usually is birthed in pain or being fed up and you decide today is the day I will make the changes necessary.

13418993_1031378973583049_1165175694360865574_nWhen you make the decision that mediocrity is no longer an option in a particular area of your life, that is when things get set into motion and changes start to happen. On our radio show, Doug Firebaugh points out that his mentor Dr. Criswell would say “Mediocrity will always be there until it is not acceptable in your life. Once you have made that decision, life will create a CLEAR PATH for you. You can tolerate or elevate. Both cannot live in the same space.”

 I love…Once you decide, life will create a clear path for you! So true!

2) You Have to Move Past What Other People Think

Living our life based on how people will judge us is one of the biggest pitfalls that keeps us from finding and embracing who we are and the greatness we have inside of us. Equal to worrying about what other people think, is doing things for peoples acceptance or approval. To embrace your greatness you have to let go of outside opinions and get clear on what you want and why you want it. Otherwise you will find yourself compromising and playing small.

3) Desiring Comfort and Leisure vs Paying the Price

So much of the marketing copy out there on being an entrepreneur talks about retiring and having the easy, good life. You will never hear that from me. First, its not true. Being an entrepreneur, small business owner or a leader on any level is ultimately about serving, growing and being your best.

We’ve been sold a lie about retirement and ease. Yes, you want to create a GREAT life and lifestyle for yourself and family and Inner Circle. It’s also about freedom to make your own choices. But its not about easy or comfortable or leisure.

Look at pro athletes or olympians or anyone playing at a high level and you will see dedication to hard, hard work – not leisure.

Jim Rohn said it’s all about your philosophy. And if you are looking for easy or leisure you will never achieve greatness. You will see every challenge as a problem verses as an opportunity to grow and get better.

4) Learning vs Entertainment

To excel in anything in life you have to be on a learning curve. As Jim would paraphrase the bible, If you search you will find, but rarely does a good idea interrupt you. You have to be proactive to find good ideas. One of the best ways to take your life to the next level in any area is to replace the tv, the news, drive time radio and time spent with the wrong people… with learning! Say YES to books, seminars and people who are playing all out in life.

5) Letting Go of Your Excuses

To take your life to the next level you have to be willing to let go of your disempowering story that is filled with excuses Your parents, your spouse, your boss, your body, your friends, the government etc etc etc.. The difference between you reading a book a month (or week) OR not, is YOU! Or eating a doughnut or an apple (as Jim Rohn would say) is YOU!

We all have our legitimate excuses and they are very real. But the reality is only you can decide if you are willing to overcome them or not. Two siblings, same alcoholic parent (or whatever the circumstance are), and one says I will not ever go down that path and the other follows in the same footsteps. The power of choice. At the end of the day, we have our list and we have to decide what we want more. Our limitations (excuses) or the results.

6) Wanting the Result More Than the Short Term Pleasure

Jim Rohn called it reasons! When your reasons or your why is clear it is so much easier to pay the price. Reasons can be financial/material (house, boat, car, seasons tickets, vacations, etc), they can be family (kids education, quality of life, safety), they can be philanthropic (helping others, giving) and maybe the most important reason – what you become!! Become a millionaire for what it will make of you. Having powerful reasons can be some of the best anchors to making real changes in your habits and life.

7) A Seat at The Table

One of the most powerful reasons for me all these years has been to be my best so I could have a seat at the table. Become a top event promotor so I could promote Jim Rohn, Og Mandino, Brian Tracy etc. Build the 1 million plus email list so I could market all the people’s programs that changed my life. Get massive results so I could spend more time with Jim Rohn, Darren Hardy, Denis Waitley, etc.

Go for greatness and for the doors it will open and the relationships it will help forge.

Many of you know I do Inner Circle masterminds and just the past year alone we had special guests like Mark Victor Hansen and Phil Collen pop in and spend the day with us. Or even having Darren Hardy, Brian Tracy and Vic Johnson spend special time with my Inner Circle members at our recent Brian Tracy 3 Day Event that I put on. That type of influence, that I can then share with my kids and Inner Circle and Lessons From Members drives me out of my comfort zone almost daily. I want these powerhouse influences to answer my call and say yes when I make a request. So that is one of the reasons that has driven me for 20 plus years to get up early, stay up late, cut the tv off and read the books, etc.

You have to find your reasons that impact you the most. We all are different.

And realize often it is 3 steps forward and 2 back and sometimes even 2 forward and 5 back. Life happens. The key is just don’t quit. Keep your eye on the prize of being your best self, having influence and making a difference.

And remember when it scares you, makes your nervous, that is almost always the time to step out of your comfort zone and embrace the challenge! This is when your inner superhero comes out. The best you gets a chance to show up. I believe that!

Lastly, in case you haven’t received yet, I have 2 awesome gifts to help aid you in becoming your best self!

Wisdom from Ivan Misner

Wisdom from Ivan Misner

 

You are probably familiar with Ivan Misner, founder and chairman of BNI, the world’s largest business networking organization.

11412399_10203083324838975_8414028624777100404_nI had the great honor of having an extended lunch with Ivan and Beth Misner this past Saturday. We are working a project together (will be announcing in the fall) and our schedules happened to intersect for a meeting at his place in Austin (recent transplants from LA).

Last year alone, BNI generated 6.6 million referrals resulting in over $8.6 billion U.S. dollars’ worth of business for its 150,000+ members.

Just like so many uber successful entrepreneurs, I find Ivan and Beth to be amazingly generous with both their time and knowledge.

Ivan believes networking is part of the process to build a referral-base and to be successful with business networking, one should understand that it is really about helping others. The people you help are more willing to help you or connect you to people they know. No matter, whether you are an introvert or an extrovert, you can be successful at networking.

Ivan is also a big believer in having a positive attitude and approach to life and business. In fact as much time, if not more was spent taking about the purpose and mission of their foundation to help with education at a grass roots level. As well as the importance of what we feed our minds and bodies.

Ivan does warn to be careful of who you let into your world. How about if every person you ever let in, you had to keep in your life forever…would that cause you to be more discerning? Guard your inner circle, both business and personal, he and Beth suggest!

Bottom line is this, Your network is your net worth. Continue to surround yourself, engage, give and grow with people that you want to learn and grow with.

To Your Success!

It was 1994 when I told Jim I wanted to do a Treasury of Quotes. He reluctantly agreed (his humbleness kept him from thinking it was needed). I went through every recording we had, all my journal notes of our conversations and the transcripts of his books at the time. I gathered almost a thousand quotes on over 100 topics and from there edited them down to 365 quotes on 60 topics. That seemed tough enough (leaving so many out). Now to just list 30… impossible, but here is my best attempt. These are all classics!

The major value in life is not what you get. The major value in life is what you become. That is why I wish to pay fair price for every value. If I have to pay for it or earn it, that makes something of me. If I get it for free, that makes nothing of me.

Human beings have the remarkable ability to turn nothing into something. They can turn weeds into gardens and pennies into fortunes.

Showing a profit means touching something and leaving it better than you found it.

Profits are better than wages. Wages make you a living; profits make you a fortune.

I used to say, “I sure hope things will change.” Then I learned that the only way things are going to change for me is when I change.

We generally change ourselves for one of two reasons: inspiration or desperation.

It takes time to build a corporate work of art. It takes time to build a life. And it takes time to develop and grow. So give yourself, your enterprise, and your family the time they deserve and the time they require.

The twin killers of success are impatience and greed.

How long should you try? Until.

Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.

The greatest gift you can give to somebody is your own personal development. I used to say, “If you will take care of me, I will take care of you.” Now I say, “I will take care of me for you if you will take care of you for me”

You cannot succeed by yourself. It’s hard to find a rich hermit.

Success is not to be pursued; it is to be attracted by the person you become.

Learn how to be happy with what you have while you pursue all that you want.

I remember saying to my mentor, “If I had more money, I would have a better plan.” He quickly responded, “I would suggest that if you had a better plan, you would have more money.” You see, it’s not the amount that counts; it’s the plan that counts.

You must get good at one of two things: sowing in the spring or begging in the fall.

There are three things to leave behind: your photographs, your library and your personal journals. These things are certainly going to be more valuable to future generations than your furniture!

For effective communication, use brevity. Jesus said, “Follow me.” Now that’s brief! He could be brief because of all that he was that he didn’t have to say.

The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not a bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.

We must learn to help those who deserve it, not just those who need it. Life responds to deserve not need.

Resolve says, “I will.” The man says, “I will climb this mountain. They told me it is too high, too far, too steep, too rocky and too difficult. But it’s my mountain. I will climb it. You will soon see me waving from the top or dead on the side from trying.”

Income seldom exceeds personal development.

Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day; while failure is simply a few errors in judgment, repeated every day. It is the accumulative weight of our disciplines and our judgments that leads us to either fortune or failure.

Economic disaster begins with a philosophy of doing less and wanting more.

Let others lead small lives, but not you. Let others argue over small things, but not you. Let others cry over small hurts, but not you. Let others leave their future in someone else’s hands, but not you.

Don’t wish it was easier; wish you were better. Don’t wish for less problems; wish for more skills. Don’t wish for less challenges; wish for more wisdom.

You can cut down a tree with a hammer, but it takes about 30 days. If you trade the hammer for an ax, you can cut it down in about 30 minutes. The difference between 30 days and 30 minutes is skills.

We all have two choices: We can make a living or we can design a life.

Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.

You must constantly ask yourself these questions: Who am I around? What are they doing to me? What have they got me reading? What have they got me saying? Where do they have me going? What do they have me thinking? And most important, what do they have me becoming? Then ask yourself the big question: Is that okay?

The greatest form of maturity is at harvest time. This is when we must learn how to reap without complaint if the amounts are small and how to reap without apology if the amounts are big.

One of the great liberal documents of the world is the Declaration of Independence. One of the most conservative documents of the world is the Constitution of the United States. We need both documents to build a country. One to get it started – liberal. And the other to help maintain the structure over the years – conservative.

If you wish to find, you must search. Rarely does a good idea interrupt you.

One customer, well taken care of, could be more valuable than $10,000 worth of advertising.

Hope you enjoyed this sampling of Jim Rohn wisdom!
