Toby Mac… Speak Life… the power of our words…
Forget About What Others Think About You
“Have I become your enemy because I tell you the truth?” Apostle Paul.
We’re afraid of making enemies. Afraid of conflict. Afraid of disagreements.
So we write, speak, record in a safety net.
We work hard to please as many people as possible. If we don’t, we might get a negative comment. A hateful email. A bad tweet.
How in the world will we control perception? How will we control what other people think about us? How will we remain liked by the masses?
When Paul wrote, “Have I become your enemy because I tell you the truth,” he wasn’t trying to be mean or brash or harsh. He was trying to be helpful. He wasn’t thinking about himself, but of his audience. He was writing in their best interest even if it cost him some likes.
If we are going to engage our audience to the max, then we need to…
Share Need Over Want
I want to eat the donut and bacon. I need to eat the grilled chicken. I’m fat because I choose the first and promise myself the second later.
What’s bad for me tastes GREAT. What’s good for me is OK but I don’t crave it.
We’ve got to stop giving in to the cravings of the crowd. Almost every blogger, writer and speaker on the planet is boring because they focus on giving people what they want.
Why? Because they want to be liked, applauded , agreed with, and affirmed.
Listen, our audience is not our therapist. We are here to serve them. They are not here to heal us. So stop worrying so much about what others think about you and give your people your best. Share what will help them the most. Even if you make a few enemies along the way.
In this series of articles we’ll cover… The Platinum Platform: Discover, Develop, & Deploy Your ENAGEment Business.
If you’ve been speaking and writing for a while or have taken a lot of professional speaker training some of the things in this series you will disagree with. I’ll be the first to admit that I did not go, nor will I go, the traditional speaker’s route.
My goal is to help you become an awesome speaker and to help you build a fun and profitable speaking business. Something you look forward to and enjoy. Something opposite of the average job. Something that makes folks say things like… “What?! You get paid how much just to talk?!!!!”
Don’t want to get paid to speak? That’s cool too. This series will help you get your voice to the masses. The more people hear you the more lives you impact.
One final note… use what you need from this series. Ignore what doesn’t fit you. Use the comment areas to ask questions or comment. Let’s roll… Continue reading »
Success is NOT an Accident!
Everyone who speaks this language has access just the same. I don’t get more letters to work with than you. You don’t get more to work with than me. Total equality.
The way we combine those letters creates impact.
We can build.
We can destroy.
To lead a successful life, career, or business, you need only three things:
1. A crystal clear understanding of WHAT you want to achieve.
2. A passionate desire and burning WHY that inspires massive action.
3. A plan of action which points to HOW success will be achieved and when.
The problem however is that while everyone wants to be successful, far too many people are unsure of their WHAT, WHY, and HOW.
I can help, and want to share something pretty special with you. It’s a rock-solid blueprint for creating your breakthrough and making 2013 the best year of your life.
Check out this incredible program that shows you how to create mind-blowing results.
With this post I am completing my 10 commitments for today. I am also one step closer to goal #5 of my 100 Day Challenge.
Success is NOT an Accident!
Consider the implication of this idea…
What would happen if I were to follow you with a camera crew 24
hours a day 7 days a week for the first 100 days of 2013 while
you went for your goals?
I bet 3 things would happen….
1) You would START doing the things you say you need to do.
2) You would STOP doing the things you know you shouldn’t be doing.
3) You would MAKE monumental performance gains and have the best
year of your life.
How this possible?
Through the power of accountability!
Accountability serves to protect your character, as well as your
credibility, and more importantly, it helps you to accomplish all
of your goals.
THE #1 thing that stops people from accomplishing their goals is
their lack of accountability.
Without accountability, you’re highly vulnerable, easily distracted,
and if not corrected, you’ll quickly become competitive toast.
So, how can someone that wants accountability get it, without
paying thousands and thousands of dollars for a coach?
Good question. Here is your answer:
Gary Ryan Blair, otherwise know as The Goals Guy has put together
what I believe to be the most comprehensive form of accountability,
goal setting and performance enhancement, that I have ever seen.
It’s called the 100 Day Challenge, and when you check out the
following link, you’ll learn how to create mind-blowing
results in 2013.
I’ve seen it, and it’s an amazing piece of work. But you don’t have
to take my word for it, check it out for yourself here:
Happy Holidays, and be sure to use this program to start 2013 fast,
focused and fired up!
Success is NOT an Accident!
P.S. I’m so impressed with Gary and his 100 Day Challenge,
that I’ll be participating in the program myself and expect
to have the best 100 days of my life!
Join me over the next 100 Days, or, at the very minimum,
