When people ask me what was the greatest shift for me in going from a small town, no college or mentors to eventually spending 18 years with Jim Rohn and being the Founder of multiple personal development companies including Jim Rohn International, YourSuccessStore, DenisWaitley.com, LessonsFromNetwork.com…. there are two CLEAR and resounding reasons:
Associations and Applied Knowledge! These two things are particularly relevant as we enter into 2018!
When it comes to associations, Jim Rohn always taught to ask yourself these three key questions.
1) “Who am I around?” You’ve need to evaluate everybody who is able to influence you in any way.
2) “What are these associations doing to me?” That’s a major question to ask. What have they got me doing, listening to, reading, thinking and feeling? You’ve got to make a serious study of how others are influencing you, both negatively and positively.
3) “Is that okay?” Maybe everyone you associate with has been a positive, energizing influence. Then again, maybe there are some bad apples in the bunch. All I’m suggesting here is that you take a close and objective look.
Personally I took Jim’s advice and became very aggressive at getting around people I could learn and grow from. In my book, 52 Lessons I Learned From Jim Rohn and Other Great Legends I Promoted, every story is based on something I learned from a mentor or higher level of association (Jim Rohn, Brian Tracy, Les Brown, Mark Victor Hansen, Zig Ziglar, Denis Waitley, Robin Sharma, Darren Hardy, John Maxwell, Jeffrey Gitomer and more).
In addition to associations you need applied knowledge! This is where you must learn and implement the skills and strategies of what other successful people do!
For me I had to learn to create a brand, build and market to a list, fill up my own events, book speakers, do media campaigns, create products, do strategic marketing, create systems, manage a team and much more.
Yes, it takes time but while I was learning and implementing new things, I watched so many people stay stagnant and not make the needed shifts or changes.
So while getting around the right people is a start, learning and applying what they do is even more important.
Plus Im starting year 4 of my Inner Circle Mastermind that meets multiple times around the country. Its has produced such awesome results for all its attendees!
