On this episode of the Activity Call podcast, Andy Albright talks to you about the importance of planning and how it determines how successful you will be.

The process of planning is huge. Planning rules the day. It determines how much you can do. The problem is the “inner me” more than the enemy. The skill to plan is critical to success. It will enable you to do more than most. Your plan will allow you do more. Planning is your guide. It is what will drive you to be successful in all that you attempt.

Your ability to set goals and makes plans is the master skill of success. Everything is a series of steps. Multitasking is about having a sequence to do work. The Alliance has the Activity book that can tell you exactly why you are getting the results you are getting. It’s like a recipe for success.

Everybody has a story. We all have “stuff” we are dealing with. Yes, you matter, but how are you working through things that just don’t matter? How do you get results? You approach steps in a particular way. You skill to plan and complete jobs will enable you to accomplish more than most people and is critical to your success.

Planning and scheduling will enable you to hit your goals, realize your purpose and complete projects. Knowing specific steps will help you move from the beginning, to the middle and to the end with clear deadlines and mini-deadlines. There is great skill in that. You can learn and master it with enough practice.

General Dwight D. Eisenhower, who led a successful invasion of Normandy in World War II, was asked about having a detailed planning process. He said, “the plans were useless, but the planning was indispensable.”

Action without planning is the cause of every failure. It is hard to attack work with no plan. There is the old military axiom that states: no plan ever survives first contact with the enemy. Discuss the enemy. The enemy versus “inner me” theory. The “inner me” is the problem more than the enemy. Situations change rapidly. The plan is obsolete, but the process is important.

All successful people work off of a written plan. They have a schedule for each week, month, year and even their life. All great human achievement of mankind from the great pyramids to the nicest sports car were preceded and accomplished with detailed plans. “Failing to plan is planning to fail.”

We are all in a race against time. You have the same time as anybody else. You can make as much money as you want to, but many of you take longer than the most successful people to do it. The “Profit Model” is to measure expense versus profit. How fast and how much do you want to profit versus what you are willing to give up in order for that profit? God gives you dreams, desire and hunger. God blesses plans. The Alliance has the light of D.A.E. (Duplication, Association, Edification). The light of D.A.E. is a plan. It is order and not chaos. Plans are like plays in football. Execute. Order. Process. Get results!

We have the 8 Steps and the 8 Core Values.

Are you working? Where are you working? Why are you working with certain people? The goal is to be intentional with the plan. Doing this brings simplicity and clarity. Be strategic when you move. Less thinking versus greater thinking. The enemy of success is past success.

Focus on Who NOT Do. Who YOU are determines what you DO. Integrity is big. Are you finding people like you? People like winners. There is a cost in anything that you do. How much of your life do you give up to get what you want? We are all dying right now. We don’t have limitless time. The sooner we can realize that, the better off we are.

Andy Albright hosted the Activity Call podcast live from his office at The Alliance headquarters in Burlington, N.C. in front of a live studio audience to announce August contest winners and to announce six new contests that will be held in the next couple months.

Do you understand the power of potential? Do you know that planning for success is the only way you will be successful? Winners are those who have potential, but that also execute and know how to win. They do it often and they love it.

The Alliance is looking for people with potential that can lead to an explosion of growth. We are looking to take people’s potential and put it in motion. We are looking for performers!

On this episode of the Alliance Activity Call podcast, Andy Albright's message centered around how you can identify your special talents and how you can use 8 things to be discover the talent that will help you get the most out of life.

Everybody has talent, but ability takes work. Michael Jordan was talented, but you can bet he worked harder than almost any other player in basketball.

The poet Longfellow wrote, “The great tragedy of the average man is that he goes to his grave with his music still in him.”

Why struggle for 20 years in a job or situation you don’t love and know it doesn’t work? When you could work for two years in something you love and it matters, you can do far more than working in an area you don’t like for 20 years.

Napoleon Hill wrote that “the key to success is for you to find out what you really love to do, and then find a way to make a great living doing it.”

Most, if not all, millionaires will tell you that they have never worked a day in their life because they found out what they loved to do and they did it more and more.

  1. You will be happiest and best at something you love to do. If you could afford to do it with no pay, would you do it? If it brings out the best in you, you get satisfaction from it and you enjoy it, why wouldn’t you do that all the time?
  2. Find your natural, obvious talent and ability and do that. We are here for two reasons: to worship God and to help people. If God is for us then who can be against us? I can do it and you can do it! You can’t win the game if you are not playing the game. Don’t sit in the stands when you should be playing on the field.
  3. What talent is responsible for most of your success and happiness? What do you enjoy, what brought you the greatest rewards and accolades and what do people know you for?
  4. What is your great talent? What was easy for you to learn and do? It was something so easy you didn’t even really work hard to learn it, you just started doing it. What was it? What is it?
  5. What is your talent now? This thing holds your attention. It fascinates you. You think about it, read about it, talk about it, learn about it, and it holds you attention all the time.
  6. You love to learn about this subject or activity. All your life it has been something you were passionate about. You have a desire to know more about it and excel at it.
  7. What is something that when you do it, time seems to stand still. Hours are like minutes.
  8. What is a talent you respect and admire in other people? Who do you know that is good or great at this talent? You admire them because they are so good at it. You want to be as good as them at this talent. People want to be respected by the people they respect. People help people.

These steps are designed to lead you into what you are uniquely put on this Earth for and to do until your time is done.

Here’s the big quest: Do I get to do it versus Do I have to do it? The trap of a poor performer is in not doing what you know you can do. Excellence doesn’t happen immediately. Anything worth doing well is worth doing poorly at first.

On this episode of the Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright explains what he means when he happily says, "One of these things is not like the others!"

People get offended to easily. They don't connect like they should because they are judgmental.
