On this episode of the Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright talks about overcoming fear.
On this edition of the Activity Call, Andy Albright discusses how people can overcome fear and doubt. The best thing about fear is that it is learned and it can be unlearned. The antidote to fear and doubt is courage and confidence.
Most people are held back by fear of failure, poverty, loss, embarrassment and rejection. Fear is the No. 1 mental issue to hold us back.
It is a process to overcome these issues. When you think of a goal, does fear overwhelm you? It’s like a little fire versus a bucket of ice water.
The second mental obstacle closely aligned is self-doubt. We doubt our own ability. We compare ourselves unfavorably to others. Too often people are thinking that other people are …
better than me
smarter than me
more competent than me
They got it all in a little pile and it is perfect and organized.
The bottom line: People think they aren’t good enough or worthy of better.
Inadequate and inferior thinking is not good.
Fear and doubt is learned. Emotion plays a big role in that mindset. Babies are not scared and they are not negative. If you put a snake in a baby’s bed, he does not fear the snake.
The higher our confidence and courage grows, the lower our fears and doubts are. Courage and confidence are developed with knowledge and skill. Most fear and doubt comes from ignorance and feeling of inadequacy. Knowledge and skill comes from doing and learning.
The Alliance calls this “Ready, Fire, Aim!” We have a one sheet available on www.NAAUniversity.com in advanced resources that covers this topic. Do and learn. People learn from attending events, listening to audios and reading books.
Psychologist have a term called “learned helplessness.” Maybe 80 percent of the population say, “I can’t.” Then, they list the reasons why they can’t.
“Whether you think you can or can’t, you are probably right.” Henry Ford
The solution: white sheeting
Small goals and simple plans. Work on them each and every day. You will develop insane courage and confidence. Little by little you history of success will start to add up to bigger achievements. It happens a little bit at a time. You can build up a huge history and grow up some strong overcomers.
Another mental obstacle that creeps in on people is “comfort zone.” Even achievers can become complacent. The comfort zone is a major obstacle in things like ambition, desire, determination and accomplishment.
The first thing to remember is to stay inside the circle of “YOU.” Control the things you can directly control. Don’t worry about your mom, dad, spouse, cousin, etc. Worry about you first. Figure out what you want and draw out a plan to make it a reality.
On this episode of the Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright talks about resource allocation and why it is so important.
The quality of your life is determined by the quality of your questions. How do I decide what is important? How do I spend my time? What do I need to be doing with my time? How do I distribute my resources?
What is a win for you? Can you define it? What do you want?
If you don’t have a clue then you are spending. If you have a plan then you are investing. Defining what a win looks like impacts your daily activities. It directs what you do.
What do you do with your time? We all get 24 hours a day. Do you spend it with family? Do you watch TV, drink beer or wine, etc.?
Watch your words. Instead of spending time or using time, call it investing time. The best leaders invest in people. Some people want to use people to make money. Let’s make sure we are investing in people to get the desired results we want.
As leaders we have to answer the question: How do we distribute our resources among competing situations?
Agents, leads, travel, Show The Plan, width depth, association, etc. All these things take energy and time.
We want to invest available resources in the present to accomplish your goals and objectives in the future.
Margaret Roush said, “Resource allocation involves balancing competing needs and priorities and determining the most effective course of action in order to maximize the effective use of limited resources and gain the best return on investment.
We have tools to build with investing your resources the right way
Resource allocation vs. asset allocation.
Time, money, energy, staff, leads are all ways to invest.
Are you taking people on ride alongs appointments? Allocate to direct or distribute.
You have choices. They can be easily defined. You want one? You want to win? You want the most? What is your best? What does it look like?
How does it compare to worst vs. how does it compare to best?
Most tasks vs. invest to get the desired results.
Spend = Trade
Invest = Devote and expect greater
Budgeting vs. Investing
What is available to you?
Dream big. Make it happen.
