It’s a gorgeous Melbourne afternoon and I’m sitting in the courtyard of one of my favourite local haunts. God. it’s good to be alive. I often remind myself of this when my mind wanders off track and I feel sorry for myself. “What have I got to worry about?”, I tell myself. After all, it’s just over 4 years since I had surgery for the removal of my prostate when I was diagnosed with prostate cancer.
From time to time, I still can get a little gloomy, but these days it’s not for long. I’ve got too much to do as I remind myself of why I’m here and what it is I’ve got to do and achieve.
I like the quote from Anthony Robbins where he says “people aren’t lazy, they just have impotent goals”. That makes sense to me, how about you? What do you think of that quote? Why is that relevant here? Well, I guess it’s as good a place to start as any. You see, I reckon I was suffering from goal impotence. You know the feeling where you’re drifting along in life without much purpose? Like you are going through “the motions”, as they say. I mean, sure, you’re achieving but just not really giving it your all. You know that you have at least another level you could easily get to if you had something that got you excited about – something that just takes your breath away. I reckon goal impotence is a lot like the Sufi saying – “if you don’t know where you’re going then any road will take you there”. I just love that. Think about that for a minute and ask yourself “how does this apply to my life right now?”.
I guess it was just that type of feeling that brought me to the the Six Figure Mentors. It was a day like this – or any other – when you aren’t focused on something that you’re excited about. I was online, enrolling in yet another Real Estate course when up pops this ad which I’d normally hit “skip” on, but for some reason, the person featured in the ad held my attention. I couldn’t detect any stress in his face, whatsoever. “I want to be like this guy”, I thought to myself. For the first time, I watched his YouTube ad through to the end and before I knew it, I was filling in my email address and name. I just went with it, not really knowing what I was doing, but I kept replaying in my mind the image of his relaxed face, and I guess that’s the thing that stuck with me. Within minutes of providing my details, the first of the 7-day-video-series was in my inbox and for the next 7 days, I watched the daily videos featuring mentors Stuart Ross and Jay Kubasek, who explained what affiliate marketing was and how people were so easily making money online – without any previous marketing or sales experience. So, I went through with the SFM, purchasing an app and before I knew it, I was upgrading my status as it quickly became evident to me that there was greater earning potential by committing to the highest level. To me, the main reason I did this, apart from the access to greater earning potential, was for the one-on-one mentoring and coaching that was on offer from those who were already doing it – and doing it well! You see, I’ve always believed in not having to reinvent the wheel, but rather modelling the behaviour and mindset of successful people and do what they do, all whilst also observing what the unsuccessful people do, so as to avoid the mistakes they make. I figure that getting access to the movers and shakers is the way to go. For me, my decision was to be all in – sure it might cost me more in the initial outlay but over the journey, my belief is it will save me a lot of time and money. Some might call it blind faith, but from what I’ve seen so far in the SFM and the online mentoring sessions, I reckon I’ve made a good decision. I keep coming back to this question – “Is what I’m doing right now going to get me to where I want to get to?”. I know the answer is a resounding no.
There you have it – that’s why I joined the SFM. At 51 years of age, I couldn’t imagine being a mortgage broker and investment property specialist for another 15 years. Please don’t misunderstand me – it’s not the money or earning potential that’s solid, but it’s the lack of time to be able to do the other things in life that are important to me. That’s what’s it for me, for sure. The dollars come at a cost and cost is significant time, (or lack of it) and stress.
That’s what’s motivating me. For you, in fact, for everyone, it will be different. But, one thing I have come to learn very quickly since joining the SFM is that people don’t necessarily want to be digital marketers. That’s what drives everyone and their purpose for being and doing. For some, it will be family or financial freedom, but it’s different for everyone. What’s driving you? What’s your why?
