This has always been my nemesis.
As I am a person who gets bored easily, I find myself saying yes to everything as I would rather make a mistake than not know what might have been. It leads to a very eclectic lifestyle, but is also distracting when trying to achieve a set goal.
This week I was feeling low and needed an energy boost, so what better way than going and watching the Best platform sales speaker in the world perform his magic. The person I am referring to is the one and only #JTFoxx
He is a salesman of the highest level and can generate a room full of energy that I have never experienced before. Not that what he is selling is for me, but if I was in the market I would have bought his program. I know the system these speakers use very well. It is very simple and not unlike that you would use for Stand-up comedy. Build the tension, release the tension.
I sat in the aisle seat for the day to just absorb his energy and get a full view of the show and left there full of energy and inspiration to continue writing my latest book.
But most importantly, the message I picked up is DISCIPLINE!
Though I have always had the Desire to complete my goals, I can see that #JTFoxx shows the discipline to be very successful.
He arrived late for the seminar, due to a late airline flight, yet this didn't phase him at all. If anything he went twice as hard, which was fantastic as I got to absorb twice as much of his energy. But even though he was giving so much, in the end you could see that it all came down to the bottom dollar which I think would have lined his pockets nicely at the end of the day. And not once did he deny this, which showed a form of arrogance which is ignited from a massive amount of confidence and discipline.
There was a moment there when I was pointed out for not taking notes, but unknown to him was that it was his energy I was after and not his information, though the message of DISCIPLINE did shine through and I appreciated that very much.
At the end of the day, I tried to show my appreciation to him and sign copies of my books to give to him, but unfortunately the real arrogance showed as he wouldn't even take them from my hands. Because I was not buying from him, his true colours showed themselves. He told to just place them behind the table on his suitcase and he would deal with them later. So I think the cleaners of the bins may have scored copies of my books that day. I know that he was busy with his potential clients, but this character trait of demeaning people that don't go along with him can give off an impression of immaturity.
Remember this is only my observation of an experience, not a characterisation of the man as a whole. As I got totally what I had came for, and got it for free, I would have liked for him to accept an exchange of energy as a gift.
But all that aside, I have two messages today;
Firstly if you want an energy boost in your life go and see J T Foxx speak, and you will find yourself leaving the room full of very positive energy. Remember to direct to your project or goal straight away as it will dissipate within a few days.
Secondly.... DISCIPLINE! This is the key to achieving your goals. Don't be a Marty and say yes to every invitation that comes along as it only creates procrastination.
