On this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright comes to you live from his home in Treasure Island, Fla. to talk about how to take ownership to take control.
Definition Of Ownership: Being Responsible For Making Sure.
If you are living the definition of ownership, you should easily be able to answer yes to the following questions:
• Do you live how you want to live?
• Do you go to bed at night completely satisfied with your day's effort?
• Do you show up exactly how you want others to show up for you?
The Four "They" Statements That People Say To Avoid Taking Ownership:
1). Why should I try, they are going to do what they want to anyway.
Possible response to reestablish ownership: Do you think you deserve a better outcome?
2). It's not my fault they don't have their act together.
Possible response to reestablish ownership: What does a better outlook look like?
3). I am doing the best I know how to do based on what they have given me.
Possible response to reestablish ownership: Is a better outcome possible?
4). I am just doing what they told me to do.
Possible response to reestablish ownership: Could you create a better outcome?
On this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright talks about the three Cs to success.
"Commitment is what drives you, Consistency is what disciplines you, and Completion is what rewards you." --Andy Albright
1. Commitment (when dedication kills excuse)
• Commitment is not measured by how strongly you feel about something, but by what you are willing to give up or dedicate time toward.
Remember: When you make something a priority, sacrifice will soon replace procrastination.
2. Consistency (when routine kills fatigue)
• Consistency is maintained when you stop living between failure and survival, and start accepting the boring habit of routine.
Remember: When there is reason for the attempt, clarity will soon replace tiredness.
3. Completion (when winning kills stress)
• Task completion is one of the most fundamental metrics to measure success. Doing the Do is a process, but completing the Do is a win.
Remember: When you chase your dream with a number to hit, obsession will soon replace anxiety.

Moral: You'll never know what you don't know until you embrace leaning toward the unknown.
Rule 4: Increase knowledge to sharpen mind (Read).
Quote: "Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body." --Richard Steele
Moral: You become knowledgeable by reading daily, you become sharper by thinking about what you read daily, and you become stronger by implementing what you read daily.

Rule 6: Stay humble to remain thirsty (Be Teachable).
Quote: "Be willing to be a beginner every single morning." --Meister Eckhart
Moral: Success reveals its cup to the teachable, and the teachable are the only ones that remain thirsty enough to drink from its cup.
Rule 7: Accept liability to honor obligation (Be Accountable).
Quote: "Accountability breeds response -- ability." --Stephen Covey
Moral: Personal liability is a statement of personal promise to deliver on defined obligations.
Rule 8: Speak optimism to boost attraction
(Communicate with a Positive Mental Attitude).
Quote: "Who you are is speaking so loudly that I can't hear what you're saying." --Ralph Waldo Emerson
