|This past Saturday, My son, Ernie, and I went to a friend’s house to watch the big Davis vs. Garcia fight.|
I do like combat sports. I love watching Ernie during his Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competitions, but boxing will always have a special place in my heart.
Although Garcia came out strong in the first round, it was Davis who eventually won with a knockout body shot in the seventh round.
Here’s the crazy thing – Davis actually predicted this would happen. When asked in the build-up to the fight for his prediction, Davis said: “Seventh or eighth round knockout.”
After the fight, a reporter asked him about how he knew that was going to happen. His response was that he didn’t know, but he used that opportunity before the fight to plant a seed of doubt in his opponent’s mind.
That was such a powerful statement and it’s one of the most important points that I try to drive home with my probate students every week.
Our minds need to be guarded – we must be very careful with what we allow into that precious space.
Self-doubt can completely cripple your ability to succeed.
But it works the other way too. Do you need to create success quickly? Set smart goals and find someone to hold yourself accountable.
The secret to this strategy is the accountability. It’s easy to tell yourself, or even your spouse, you’re going to achieve a goal. But it’s also easy for you both to make excuses when another month slips by and you’re right where you started.
About a year ago we added weekly accountability calls to our Probate Growth Accelerator coaching program. I am continually amazed at how quickly students grow because of having their feet held to the fire by their peers.
Ready to finally hit it big? Get your head straight first. And remember, I’m always here to help.
To your success,
