Be an introverted show-off

Show the world what you can do. Never mind the world. Show yourself.

–Bob Bowman, career-long coach for Olympic Gold medalist Michael Phelps

What’s your focus when you are heading for a goal? Does a corner of your brain want to show yourself what you’re capable of? Or are you outwardly-focused on what “they” will say or give you at the finish line?

Maybe a healthier way is to show yourself what you’re capable of, and enjoy any applause and accolades that come your way. That’s the philosophy that Michael himself uses… he says in his “No Limits” autobiography that he only races against the clock, and not against other swimmers.

(Notice I didn’t suggest accomplishing the goal in secrecy or celebrating only behind closed doors. Please enjoy the rewards of your efforts!)

What do you get?

I hear many sayings in our industry on that subject.

“You get who you are.”

“You get what you deserve.”

“You get the same value you provide.”

“If you want more, give more.”

This one makes the most sense to me:

You get what you repeat.     –James Clear, author of “Atomic Habits”

For a referral partner struggling to connect with highly influential people, it brings hope.

For a new distributor learning sales skills, it brings promise of mastery.

For a client searching for motivation to get into better shape while they drink your company’s protein shake each morning, it brings the possibility that the boring, frustrating, and sore-muscle workouts will someday bear fruit. And the money spent will be worth it.

Mind you, it doesn’t mean one should blindly repeat an action. The author explains how to choose the action(s) to mold into habit(s) that will propel you in the direction you want. He also gives obvious credit to the authors whose research helped him develop his own methods.

I find the book fascinating, and I continue reading and absorbing his methodology.

Should I stay or should I go?

January is a popular time to join a business, to fulfill a new year’s eve resolution.

Some people are starting their first entrepreneurial endeavor.

Some jump to a new company.

This dynamic happens in all companies, so don’t be shocked.

Bear in mind it’s important to find the right company for you, and only you know what that means for your situation.

If you choose to stay, do so with class. Don’t insult those who leave. It’s their right to move to a different company (or quit the profession) if they want.

If you choose to move to a different company, do so with high integrity. Don’t poach from those who stayed. Poaching includes deliberately (subtly or directly) building doubt in someone’s mind.

Remember The Golden TeamBuilder’s Rule:

Do unto other teams as you would have done unto yours.   –LRS

There’s plenty of success available for all of us.

When the party’s over…

January starts with a burst of excitement and optimism, with parties and setting impressive goals.

Then about a week later… the elation wears off.

This is when the goal looks most bleak: after the excitement of setting it wears off and long before it is manifested. Maybe you’ve not followed through with your daily action plan. Or the finish line simply seems TOO FAR AWAY.

The willingness to show up changes us. It makes us a little braver each time.

–Dr. Brene Brown

A step toward your goals is better than no step. I salute your courage to move in the direction you envision.

Save This (Restart) Coupon

January 1st can have a nearly mythic quality in the world of personal development.

It’s “THE” new year.

“I will reach all my goals!”

“I will become the person I always wanted to be!”

In an inspiration from The Brady Bunch television show, I describe that as: “Pressure, pressure, pressure.”

(Imagine an exasperated younger sister saying that to her seemingly-perfect older sister.)

Today is the 3rd day of 2019. If you find yourself frustrated with your lack of progress thus far (or you didn’t behave the way you planned), I’m giving you permission…

Permission to restart.

In fact, you can claim it as many times as you want.

A Year, A Green Mirror

Each year brings its unique challenges. Sometimes our efforts result in exactly what we want, and others leave us short of our goals.

Our businesses reflect these situations to us at different speeds.

Nowadays, many companies pay on a weekly or daily basis with a direct deposit. When we earn the bonus or residual income, we receive it much faster. This is a mirror with quick response. I named this Mirror Type One.

Our customer-gathering and distributor signups tend to lag about 6 weeks after the outreach effort (or lack thereof). The results of our outreach may take a few weeks for us to reap the benefits of a signup. Likewise, if we slack off, it may take several weeks for the signup rate to start decreasing. It is a mirror with a delayed response. I call this Mirror Type Two.

Our inner (personal) growth starts on the inside and may take weeks, months, or years to show on the exterior. This is a mirror with a lengthy delay. I call this Mirror Type Three.

Because the progression toward our goals seems to start with the third type of activity (with the longest time between effort and result), followed by the second type (delay of a few weeks), followed by the first type (delay of 1-7 days), the rewards seem to come in bursts. The effects of the Mirrors seem to stack up at the end of the process, when Mirror Type One shows us the money.

If you experienced bursts of (or sustained) Mirror Type One encounters, I congratulate you on your visible success.

If your Mirror Type One experiences were few or absent during this year, I still am proud of you, and I invite you to look in The Green Mirror.

The Green Mirror is your personal mirror of all the steps that are leading you toward Types One, Two, and Three. It includes all the private struggles and personal victories. It contains the list of all the business activities you may have brushed off as “not enough.” I named these types of progress-toward-goal experiences as Green Lights, and if you feel discouraged about your progress, I strongly suggest you take a look at them. I’m willing to bet you grew more inside than the world gives you credit for.

May you finish Year 2018 with a smile, and may you begin 2019 with joy.

The follower’s version of a song

You might be familiar with an English-language Christmastime song, talking about a man in a red suit who is coming to town. The verses claim that he sees everything you do, and you should be well-behaved.

Leaders, your followers observe you this way all-year-round.

I know all of you readers are human, and I don’t want you to think you have to be perfect if you’re a leader. On the contrary. Humans make mistakes… and your followers are watching closely to see how you handle those situations. A person’s character is revealed both by what a person does, as well as how one tries (or does not try) to make amends for misuse of power and influence.

Followers, watch your leaders. Note what they do well, and also make an Anti-List: they way you will NOT handle a situation, if something similar happens to you.
