  • Eli (my 13 year old son), I have a question for you. What if I try something and it doesn’t work? If you make only one attempt at a worthy objective, you are not committed. Your fear of embarrassment is stronger than your level of commitment. Successful people don’t get embarrassed, they get more determined! To succeed you must continuously fine tune, assess, make a new plan with a new starting line, and take more action. As Zig Zigler famously said: Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly until you can learn to do it well. Too often, people feel embarrassed because something wasn’t wildly successful on their first effort. FAILURE IS AN EVENT, NOT A PERSON. Remember, if failure is not an option, success isn’t either. The fear of embarrassment often leads to this type of thinking: Nothing ventured, nothing lost. When you play not to lose you usually lose anyway. And, most importantly, you never move forward if you don’t try to move forward. You won’t get embarrassed by not trying. What you do get is a plaid jacket that they give to members of the Mediocrity Hall of Fame. Trust me, you won’t look good in plaid. In today’s world of multi-distracting ourselves by unsuccessfully attempting to multi-task, the prevailing attitude is: If at first you don’t succeed, you probably don’t have the ability. If Rome wasn’t built in a day, then you probably don’t have the ability. So why try? Commitment, my friend. Focus, my son. Clarity, young man. Singleness of purpose. Why don’t people copy the minority that is successful (as nature intended)? We, as a society, value natural, effortless accomplishment over achievement through effort. There is no such thing as effortless achievement. Guess why Steph Curry is such a good shooter? Or why Tony Robbins is such a good speaker? They appear to be performing effortlessly. They continually stretch themselves, behind the scenes, with new ideas, techniques, and by reviewing their imperfect performances to make themselves seem more natural. Back in the day, when I was selling, we were always given a sales pitch. One of the reasons that the 80/20 rule is so prominent in sales is because some people are more “natural” sales people than others. BALONEY! If you knew the hours and hours of practice it takes to become a good salesperson, you would discover that there is no such thing as a natural salesperson. I was fortunate to have some great mentors. I was fortunate that they taught me to use a tape recorder and listen to myself selling. Watching yourself on a videotape is even better. There are so many aspects to being a great salesperson such as making appointments, securing prospects, getting referrals, using your hands and your eyes, smiling, putting the client at ease, posture, and on and on. The devil is in the details. Of course, that’s where excellence hides as well. Studying the masters is the key to success in everything. Here is my major point. It is natural to find a successful person, the 5%er, and copy what they do to be an outstanding achiever. I say this because nature has offspring copy their more successful parents at birth and in childhood to survive and thrive. When you are pursuing “unchartered” territory, copy the formula of those that pursued “unchartered” territory before you. Plan, do, review, be committed and expect temporary failure. It is part of the process. It is a law of nature. Do not let failure deter you from your committed outcome but rather use it as inspiration to continue. Don’t feel that you always must follow the crowd. A man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back to the crowd. Do not become embarrassed when you are not perfect in your performance. Copy the 5%ers that realize success is the constant correction of a series of failures. Do not ever feel that your education is complete. Continually stretch yourself to develop new skills. Remember to drill, practice, rehearse, and review to make your movements seem natural and smooth to others. Then do it again! It is necessary to tell you some of the “why’s and because’s” people are unable to become successful. We are human and subject not only to the frailties of our species but also the shortcomings of the society that we live in (and its influences). My goal is to inoculate you from copying mediocrity by exposing the virus so that you may recognize it when you see it. And, as always, Eli (my 13 year old son), to Educate, Lead, and Inspire. PAY ATTENTION TO SUCCESS AND COPY IT.

  • Wow, i was thinking about this today, my advice would be to not listen your negative interior voice, just like you said in the tip #5 you have to learn from your mistakes but once you do, delete the negative experience associated with that thought and just focus on the lesson learned. Another very important thing is to make sure you congrat yourself once you achieve your goal so you recognize your victory, but also to keep repeating the good habits that you just learned.

  • I found you on Twitter and if you follow me PollyMotzko there then we can send messages back and forth- private messages on Twitter. Bravo on a standing ovation to all of your efforts Evan. I have people asking me to do videos and I don't ever seem to have anybody to hold the camera for me so I'm just going to start doing it myself I see lots of my friends that I know that are in the blogging industry and web sites, they do videos it doesn't matter what it is but just either hold the camera put on the tripod but just do it. I can be waiting forever for mr. Right to come along or a person to hold the camera for me common I just don't think they're ever going to come along unless I hire a videographer at 70 bucks an hour, which I'd just soon not

  • Liked this one a lot! The points, the pacing, the way it was edited, the way you created a new word… really great stuff!My favorite was number 6 “have honest conversations”. I’ve experienced fear of failure not from the failure itself but about what those closest to me would think. You’re 100% right that the way through that fear is to have honest conversations with those people. MOST OF THE TIME (about 98.3% of the time) those closest to us will be supportive.

  • Decide to live your life is the one that resonated with me. I'm in my 60's and always done what was expected of me and my life has been very unhappy. Working through what I have to do to live 'my' life. Don't know how to separate societal expectation from my dreams. Afraid I'll get it wrong and be worse off but even more afraid that I will not get the courage to do it and waste what is left of my life.

  • "Fail your way to success" !!!! One of my favorite books is Failing Forward. The concept makes sense. Ive got to train my mind to see failure as a stepping stone vs. A setback. #BTA8

  • Definitely need to have growth mindset, not validation. Like successful people tend to see failure as temporary but learning and grow in process in long run.
