Happy New Year from Our Entire Team!
Quite a while back I was fortunate to be invited into an elite study group. The study group consisted of many friends/peers who were leaders from around the country within the financial planning field. Our group, which was called Top Gun School, followed Dan Sullivan’s Strategic Coach Curriculum. If you aren’t familiar with Dan Sullivan or The Strategic Coach; I’d encourage you to make the investment in yourself. The investment is substantial however the return on investment is immeasurably life altering.
There were numerous exercises and growth moments throughout the eighteen month course, however one session in particular has always stood out. The idea that your dreams are actually much closer than you realize.
The exercise is quite simple. As with anything important its the execution that makes all the difference.
We began by taking a couple of hours in solitude to list all that we wanted to accomplish in our lives. Categorically we segmented the list into short term, medium and longer term objectives. A bucket list of sorts.
This is where the excitement grew for each of us. We began to list the necessary steps to make each of these dreams or big ideas become a reality. Next we began placing time frames/deadlines around each of our next steps. For many of us we began to envision completed projects or the coming fulfillment that was once a dream and now was a certainty
There was a realization that many items were well within reach in the near future when we simply prioritized our time and energy towards completion. It wasn’t long before we began sharing stories of monies raised, trips planned or simply the groundwork being laid out on some really big ideas.
I certainly don’t want to oversimplify the process. However, I firmly believe that when action items are applied to ideas results will surely follow. Michael Hyatt says it this way, “With action comes clarity.”
At Drive Planning we use the phrase (even hashtag) Be Intentional! The exercise that our Top Gun Group went through simply taught us to Live with Intention. Having an instructor, Kevin Murphey, whom we all looked up to and admired to hold us accountable certainly made a huge impact on each outcome. The best in any sport or field have coaches and mentors.
I want to invite you to create that Bucket List and begin reeling it a bit closer each day, week or month. Find a mentor/coach to push you. If our Be Intentional Package will help you, well all the better.
Recently, in a group setting, I made the statement above which brought several people up to me afterwards wanting to discuss this idea further. Later the image above was posted on twitter which triggered 3 text messages expressing interest and support for this message.
I’ve believed this for a long time but these responses suggested that more and more people believed this also. For years I’ve had clients mention this to me; That they just didn’t know people who liked to talk business or ones that knew about investment opportunities.
Have you ever heard the old adage, The Rich Get Richer? Of course, but maybe it isn’t solely about the fact that they have more money invested thus making money. In fact, I believe that its derived from this idea that who you know makes a significant difference in your wealth building.
Robert Kiyosaki says, “your income will mirror your five closest friends.” So all of this information leads me to believe that we should pay close attention to our circles, conversations and information that we seek.
