This is going to sound kind of weird to you. But I think it will be the one thing you need to get unstuck and launch your speaking, training and coaching career.
I’m going to share with you the two invisible forces that may be holding you back. And it’s not what you’ve been thinking.
Don’t be distracted. Read this all the way to the end.
Let’s get it.
Last Friday was a long day. I woke up really early to prepare for my speaking engagement. Later, I had dinner with the board of directors. Then, I headed to my hotel room.
I needed some information for a webinar the next day. I went to youtube.
One of the suggested videos on youtube was from America’s Got Talent. I clicked on it. Mind you; I don’t even watch television.
I don’t know much about America’s Got Talent.
But that particular show was a cab driver in Miami who spent all his life entertaining his passengers with his voice.
One day, a passenger suggested he tried America’s Got Talent. He did. And he got in.
During his performance, he shocked the audience. He sang a stunning opera song. All the judges including Simon and everyone in the audience were totally blown away!
And get this…
While he was performing on the stage, unconsciously, he extended his hands as if they were on the steering wheel of his cab and the audience was in his back seat.
I lost it. I had tears all over my face. I started thinking…
“Am I the only one who cries while watching a show like this?”
Then it dawned on me.
The world is full of people who are extremely talented. They drive a cab all their lives and never use their talents to make a big impact. So sad!
Maybe because they feel like they are not good enough. Maybe they never got the approval from others.
I thought about YOU. Yes, I mean you. Your cab maybe the job you are stuck in. Or it maybe something else. I don’t know.
But for sure I know you are probably frustrated just like I was when I was a doorman selling myself short at the hotel for 15 years.
My friends and co-workers kept telling me how much I motivate and inspire them. They told me that was my calling.
But, I was stuck. I didn’t know where to go and how to start.
Slowly, I kept fumbling in the dark trying to discover how to realize my dream.
Sure enough, after years of trial and error and a truckload of money I didn’t have, I found my way. Hint: Credit cards.
The question is…
Why is it so many struggles and never accomplish their dreams?
Why is it so many people end up living the rest of their lives in regrets and are barely getting by?
The reality is, there are no excuses why anyone should live an average life.
Today, we have access to EVERYTHING we need to succeed. Money is not the issue. And it should never be.
With just one click of the mouse, you can get a world of information on any topic.
You probably have a hard drive full of information.
You know what I mean, right? You signup for the courses bought the books. You bought the books.
If you are a real consumer, you took lots of notes. You get excited! And you do NOTHING with all of that.
Now, if we have all this information available to us…
Why aren’t we living the life we want? What’s holding us back? Why do we feel so stuck?
How come every time we decide to go for what we want, something pulls us back?
I think there TWO MAIN reasons people continue to struggle unnecessarily…
Reason #1: Nothing out there is going to change your life or empower you to live your dream.
If that were the case, you would have the life you dream about.
Look, it doesn’t matter how many books you read and how many seminars or courses you take.
It doesn’t even matter if your gurus invited you to live with them for a whole year to follow and study them. You would still be where you are. Why?
It’s because what’s stopping you is you. It’s NOT out there.
For example, I coached many entrepreneurs who come to me to help them with their marketing.
But when I start going deeper, I would often discover they already know what to do.
The problem is not a lack of knowledge. The problem is them. All I need to do is to help them identify the invisible forces that are holding them back and wipe them out.
The thing is, your mind will continue to trick you into thinking you need to take one more course or certification, read one more book, or buy one more online service.
Every time you see someone using a gadget, you think, “If I can only buy this, things would begin to happen for me.”
Reason #2: Most teachers don’t know how to teach. What do I mean by that?
Well, it’s not about having the right information. It’s about having the right information in the right sequence.
Because you read a book or hear someone talking their success and how they got it does not mean you can do the same thing and achieve their results.
Think about it this way. Let’s say I give you 12 numbers for a vault that contains 100 million dollars.
If I don’t give you the right sequence to dial the numbers, you will NEVER unlock that vault.
Simply put, success in anything is EASY as long as you have the right information in the right sequence. And you know the belief triggers and what’s holding you back.
Most teachers and authors have no clue about this. They think success is a cookie cutter – one-size-fits-all.
So, it’s time for you to get off the cab and change your life.
Let me get this straight. There’s something I know about you for a fact.
I know you are brilliant!
The fact you are not where you would wish to be has nothing to do with brain power.
You just need some clarity and the belief that what you know and who you are is good enough.
You only need a few distinctions to package, position, and promote your genius.
So, I decided to re-open my coaching program. But I want to warn you.
This is not just about how to become a powerful motivational speaker. I can teach you that. I’m a master at it. As far as I know, no one can teach it to you better than I can.
I’m talking about removing the stumbling blocks out of your way.
