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!

Brian Tracy Event Recap Notes Part 1

Brian Tracy Event Recap Notes Part 1

Welcome to the Brian Tracy 3 Day Weekend Event Recap Notes Part 1!

This powerful 3 day event was extra special for me, not for the least of reasons, it was the 20 year anniversary of the Success Mastery Academy. A 2 day event Brian Tracy and I co-created in 1996 and did all over the country.

13266131_1021980874522859_3715467469337171240_nAlso I was able to invite some really special long time friends including Darren Hardy, Ron White, Vic Johnson to speak and be a part of the event, along with many amazing Lessons From Network Contributors and Kyle Wilson Inner Circle Members, who are world class in their industries (sports, music, entertainment, marketing, writing, leadership, etc) to share their ideas and stories.

Having almost every speaker stick around for the entire 3 days and connect with all the attendees was extremely rare indeed.

I’m going to break this recap into 3 parts (and maybe more as I keep receiving Golden nuggets from so many attendees). In fact, the response in the post event comments were some of the best I’ve ever received from any event that I’ve promoted, including so many powerful Jim Rohn 2 and 3 day events I put on over the years.

In addition to the highlights from all of our speakers, I will also include some insights from the event promotion side. There is a lot that goes into putting on and marketing an event like this. So I hope to share some things you will find to be of value.

By the way, the majority of ideas are coming directly from attendees sharing their insights with me in our private event Facebook Group as well as a discussion at my recent Inner Circle meetings (the majority of which attended the event).

Here we go. Again, just a small sampling of key ideas shared over the 3 days by Brian Tracy, Darren Hardy and more.

Brian Tracy

– Write down your top 10 goals EVERY NIGHT! This act alone will help your subconscience mind look for solutions and attract the desired goals. Rewriting is a discipline that pays major dividends.

– When you wake up each morning ask, “What is my greatest challenge?”… then turn that into an Empowering Question. If it is.. “I need to recruit more people”… change it to … “How do I recruit more people?”… “I need better associations”…change to …”How do I get around better associations”?

– When you ask a question related to solving a challenge… write down 20 potential solutions. The first 5 or 10 are probably obvious to you. But it is the last 10 and especially the last 3-5 that force you to think outside the box and get creative. Often times that is where many of our best ideas come from.

– The future belongs to the askers. You need to ask, if you want to receive and achieve in life. Ask politely, ask curiously and ask repeatedly.

– Failure requires no effort, if you don’t decide to be excellent, by default you become mediocre.

– Zero based thinking: ask yourself this powerful question. “If I knew then what I know now would I still do it?” Knowing what I now know .. would you still do it is a powerful question. And then based on the answer, take action.

– Ingrain in your kids your belief that they are good and full of amazing potential and they will impact the world in a great way! Tell your kids “You’re the best!” “You’re going to be the best success ever!!” “You are amazing!” “You are doing amazing things!”

– By studying up to 2 hours per day, 5 days a week you can be a master of any skill!

Darren Hardy

– Of all of the 50 things that a realtor (for example) needs to do, pick the top 3 that you need to do on a regular and consistent basis and focus the majority of your time on that.

– What is your give up list? Most people keep adding to their list instead of thinning it down.

– Focus for 90 minute chunks of undivided time on the One Thing to get more accomplished. Turn off all alerts and shut off the phone during this time.

– Since age 21 Darren has taken 10% of his income and invested it in his own self-development.

more Darren Hardy in Pt 2

Erika De La Cruz

– 90% of the people feel on some level they are a fraud. They fear being found out. We all struggle with this. It is what keeps so many from truly stepping up and sharing their message with the world.

– Assume your throne! It is time to claim what you have accomplished and tell your story. No more downplaying or hiding from your successes.

more Erika in Pt 2

Vic Johnson

– If you want to have celebrity authority you must BUILD AN AUDIENCE! Ultimately its about traffic, prospects, customers and then fans.

– Having a book is one of the best ways to leverage your story, brand and celebrity authority.

more Vic in Pt 2

Again, so much more to share from Brian, Darren, Erika, Vic and also Ron White, Tom Ziglar, Delatorro McNeil, Kim Somers Egelsee, Donna Krech, and many more!! A lot of talent and so many key ideas were shared, including a special tribute (by Larry Thompson and myself) to my mentor and 18 year business partner, Jim Rohn. I will be sharing more key ideas on all in part 2 (look for it in a few days).

Also I will be adding some videos along the way.

Of course, nothing replaces being at the event, with the people. Its an experience and lives are changed. But I do hope these notes are helpful for you!

Talk soon!

Kyle

PS – I want to invite you to ask questions that come up and I will potentially include in a future email with an answer. Also, if you attended the event please share some key insights you received as well. Simply reply to this email or email info@kylewilson.com
