Where Are You Going To Be 1 Year From Now?
I want to tell you the tale of two experts.
You are one of the experts, and the other is someone that you will meet along your journey.
You both go to a marketing conference. It’s the same conference in the same location on the same weekend. At the conference you learn something that’s absolutely going to change your life.
That could be getting involved in real estate investing or internet marketing or a new business opportunity or just something new in your life. After the event you go home and you start reading more. You buy some books. You find some more experts. You buy some online courses. You start reading PDF’s and blogs and listening to podcasts.
You’re doing all these things and then month after month after month goes by.
Day after day goes by.
Week after week goes by and all of the sudden you’re like, “I haven’t done anything. I haven’t actually made progress towards my goals.”
At this event, you met someone. That person was in the same shoes, the same boat that you were in and they were engaged and engulfed and inspired and motivated to change their life just like you were.
A year goes by and you see this person at another event. You reconnect with them and you say, “Hey, what have you been up to?”
You start telling them you’ve been listening to all these podcasts and reading all these blogs and you’ve been checking out this online course and you’ve bought this software and you got that software and you got all these things hobbled together and then he goes, “But what are you doing? What are you selling? How are you making an impact?”
You’re stuck in this mode where you’re just learning.
You’re stuck on that hamster wheel where you think you’re creating motion but you’re really staying stagnant.
Then you ask them, “So hey, what have you been up to in the past year?”
“Well, I built my email list and I have thousands of email subscribers that I talk to every single day. I started a podcast and we’re already 52 episodes in. We do one episode a week and we’ve been doing it for a year now. I get all those episodes transcribed, and I turn them into blog posts. I put them on Medium.com and on my website. I now have this flagship five week online course and program that we put hundreds of students through. Life is great!”
That person’s life has changed in just 12 months. Instead of consuming, instead of reading, instead of watching, instead of listening, they were doing.
They were out there making a change in their life.
So I ask you, where are you going to be 12 months from now?
Are you going to be the person who’s still reading another blog?
Who’s buying another course?
Who’s checking out another software?
Or are you going to be the one who’s out there creating an impact and having significance in the world?
