On this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright serves up 8 rules to know in regards to his 8 Steps.

Settle in and learn as Andy gives you tips to help you improve in these eight areas. 

Let's look at each rule ...

Rule 1: Set the example to be the example (Personal Use).

Quote: "A good example is the best sermon." --Ben Franklin

Moral: A visual is worth a thousand advice.

Rule 2: Perform duty to gain result (Work).

Quote: "The reward of one duty done is the power to fulfill another." --George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans)

Moral: The more one treats work as an opportunity, the more chances one has at success.

Rule 3: Lean in to be in (Listen).

Quote: "The weaker we feel, the harder we lean. And the harder we lean, the stronger we grow." --J.I. Packer

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 5: Show up to blow up (Attend All Meetings).

Quote: "Sometimes the bravest and most important thing you can do is just show up." --Brene Brown

Moral: Show up the first time like you're meant to be there and your courage will be introduced to success.

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

Moral: Speaking to hear yourself speak might boost your ego, but it will not leave them begging for more. A well-timed authentic and positive word can change the course of someone's day.

We hope this helps you as you work on improving in all that you do daily. Start using these rules to help you as you work on each of The 8 Steps!

On this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright talks about the 4 Social Bonds and how they drive success.

What is a Social Bond?

A relationship between people or groups based on shared feelings, interests, or experiences.

Social Bond Quote:

"We recognize feelings, we share in common interests, and we participate in unique experiences; and that's why we form deep and enduring social bonds with one another in The Alliance. Emotional connection is the glue that binds us together." -- Andy Albright

The Four Social Bonds:

1). Attachments -- investment in relationships with proven others.

2). Commitments -- investment of resources in a proven system.

3). Involvements -- investment of time in proven activities.

4). Beliefs -- investment of attitude in a proven culture.

 

Why are people successful in our business?

1). Because of their attachments to other significant people in their lives (attending meetings and copying leaders).

2). Because of their commitment to what works and not losing their progress (buying leads and hiring staff).

3). Because of their involvement in productive pursuits and not wasteful behavior (setting 40 appointments and making 40 approaches).

4). Because of their belief in a common mission and established norms (defeating poverty and following The 8 Steps).

On this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright comes to you live from his home in Treasure Island, Fla. to explain how you can make an attitude shift.

Listen as Andy shares the 8 ways you can guarantee that you have a positive mental attitude. 

Eight Ways To Guarantee A Positive Mental Attitude:

1). Expect to win (by setting clear/achievable goals and relentlessly pursuing them).

2). Don't whine (by never complaining about a setback and not searching for excuses of why something didn't happen). 

3). Look for solutions (by finding opportunity in crisis and seeing gain in pain you will expand your comfort zone and Get Stuff Done).

4). Press forward (by focusing with intention/action or "what" driven and connecting with purpose/motive or "why" driven you will free yourself from distracting thoughts).

5). Set the bar high (by betting on yourself daily and not settling on "good enough" you will seek to surpass the expectation and achieve excellence.

6). Be willing to pay the price (by taking calculated risks to be great and outworking the competition you will remain motivated to master the mundane while others take a break). 

7). Make everyone better (by communicating effectively/leaving nothing to chance and moving faster to create momentum/being a role model within your group you tide will lift all ships).

8). Finish strong (by doing the little things well and embracing the fourth quarter with enthusiasm your dedication will be rewarded with results).

#DoTheDo

Apr 9, 2021

On this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright talks to you about you can creating good habits and break bad habits at the same time. 

"If your priority to add a good habit is not bigger than your priority to keep a bad habit, then you will never change the path you are on." --Andy Albright

Moral: Adding a good habit is realized when you can see its reward and ignore the pleasure of a bad habit.

Four Ways to Create a Good Habit:

1). Make it obvious (design your environment. Make the cues of a good habit visible).

Example: Stack previous booked appointments and the issue-paid policies in front of you while you dial.

2). Make it attractive (create a motivation ritual. Do something you enjoy immediately before and after a difficult habit).

Example: Before and after dialing have the first half of your favorite dessert and then finish the other half.

3). Make it easy (Prime the environment. Pair an action you want to do which requires less effort with an action you need to do which is rewarding).

Example: Sit in your most comfortable chair, with your favorite music playing, staring out into your most inspiring view, while making your dials.

4). Make it satisfying (Use a habit tracker. Keep track of your habit streak and don't break the chain).

Example: Turn your habit into a routine by keeping score of your successes and creating a contest with yourself.

Four Ways to Break a Bad Habit:

1). Make it invisible (Reduce exposure. Remove the cues of your bad habit from your environment).

Example: Get rid of the TV in your upstairs bedroom.

2). Make it unattractive (Reframe your mindset. Highlight the benefits of avoiding your bad habit).

Example: More reading and sleeping will occur.

3). Make it difficult (Increase friction. Increase the number of steps between you and your bad habit).

Example: Only keep a TV downstairs in the den.

4). Make it unsatisfying (Create a habit contract. Make the costs of your bad habit painful).

Example: Require a fee to be placed in a jar every time you watch the den TV.

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

#TheAlliance #IBelieveThatWeWillWin

Mar 13, 2021

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.

Those were:

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

Moral:
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.
