On this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright talks about setting priorities to guarantee success.
The Four Reasons To Set Priorities:
1). Identifies what is important (make a list of those things that need to be done right now).
"The key is not to prioritize what's on your schedule, but to schedule your priorities." --Stephen Covey
Moral: "Efficiency is doing things right; Effectiveness is doing the right things." --Peter Drucker
2). Helps guide better decision-making (things that are considered the most essential should be classified as priorities first).
"Things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least." -- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Moral: "Many things are good, many things are important, but only a few are essential." --David Todd Christofferson
3). Keeps you on track (once the essential needs have been met, the desirable wants in your life can be approached and obtained).
"Priorities dictate our choices, choices shape our wants, and what we want determines our actions." --Andy Albright
Moral: 1st: Establish your priorities (what you choose to do)
2nd: Determine what you want from your do
3rd: Decide what you are willing to exchange for it
4). Gives you confidence to say no (once committed to your priorities, it will give you permission to ignore distraction).
"Dedication to your priorities ensures neglect to all negativity." --Andy Albright
Moral: "with my mind on my money and my money on my mind." -- Gin and Juice by Snoop Dogg
On this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright brings you Part 2 of his series on how to combat the doubts that create negativity.
In Part 1, we learned about the first three of six negative objections and thoughts a new agent might encounter.
1). "Is something wrong with this or is there something wrong with me?"
Advice: Be Decisive - decide to take control of your own narrative.
2). "Why didn't they even want to listen to what I had to offer them?"
Advice: Be Persistent - reject objection with a tenacious pursuit of your own goals.
3). "Is that a multi-level, network marketing, pyramid scheme?" Advice: Be Courageous - challenge the mainstream with your activity.
In Part 2, Andy will share three more objections.
4). "Don't do it. You will lose money and friends."
Advice: Be Responsible - stick to owning the actions within YOUR story. "You either walk inside your story and own it or you stand outside your story and hustle for your worth." -- Brene Brown
Don't let your self-worth be decided by caution and driven by warning. Never find yourself answering to others' experiences or explaining others' objections when choosing your own path.
5). "Who is going to buy from you? You will run out of warm market people soon."
Advice: Be Solution-Focused - concentrate on what could go right vs. what could go wrong. Don't spend endless hours analyzing a problem that hadn't happened yet.
"See what is before you. See the here and now. It is the hardest thing. The only thing that counts." --Abraham Lincoln
Moral: Let the focus of the moment drive your future.
6). "I'm busy. I don't have time. I have to spend time with my family."
Advice: Be Adaptable - avoid getting stuck in the trap of others' personal excuses. Don't expend energy and time trying to get into the emotional weeds with them. Quickly move on to the next down, the next pitch, the next point, the next frame, the next golf hole, etc.
"Negativity is not the problem. The problem is the incredible amount of overthinking you're doing with that negativity. Don't give it credence and move on." --Andy Albright
Moral: Train your mind to see the good in everything. Positivity is a choice, but unfortunately so is being miserable.
