Hey, team. For this week's reminder,
I really want to push you towards the best
in the business.
What I mean by that is
we all have different hobbies, passions
and things that we work towards,
especially if you own a business.
This one might be
extremely important for you.
Seeking out someone who is excellent in
their industry isn't hard to do anymore.
Back in our parents day,
they would have never been able
to have access to these people
who were top of their class.
Now, there's so many platforms out there
where you can actually do courses
or get coaching from people who have done
the things that you want to do.
There's a lot of noise on the Internet
with some people putting out
courses and things that they just don't
have the experience in.
Some people telling you how to make money
when they don't even know
how to do it themselves.
You need to look beyond
those beyond those cheap, cheap prices
and go to the best in the business.
When I was younger and I played football,
I used to watch AFL players on replay
on the TV before I would go out
and play my own local game of football.
There was a reason
I watched the AFL players rather than
watching another local team to pump me up.
That reason was I wanted to see what
people at the highest level were doing.
Not only did it inspire me
because I wanted to be like them,
it also taught me a lot of things too.
You can do the same with whatever
you're working towards.
For example, if you want to be the best
tennis player in the world,
you can actually get coached by people
who are the best
tennis players in the world.
I know it sounds crazy,
but I can link you to a site right now
where you can learn that
if sport is not really your thing
and you're more of a business person,
there are so many people out there
sharing knowledge on how they got to their
first million dollars,
how they built their business
from one employee to 100 employees.
Learn from the people
who have been there and done it.
Don't learn from the people
who are just talking about
what they think sounds right in theory.
There's a book I read a little while ago
and has this quote in it
that talks about Would you take
baking advice from a banker?
And when I read that,
it really stuck with me because
I feel like a lot of people want to give
you advice on things, but 90% of the time
they haven't actually done the thing
or they're not an expert in that area.
Yet for some reason, we still take
on their advice and try and execute that.
I'm telling you, you don't have to take
advice from everyone that gives it to.
You can go to the best, learn from them
and then implement it.
Now, if you're thinking this is going
to cost a lot of money, it doesn't.
We have things like YouTube.
There are people on platforms that are
just giving away information for free.
I have learned so much in podcasts that
I've paid for courses and gone to that
and I haven't gotten out half as much as
what I've learned in one podcast episode.
You might need to do some searching,
but it will be worth it.
If you find the right coach for whatever
you're working towards,
you'll be able to achieve
that goal so much sooner.
So for this week,
I want you to start looking for people
in your industry, people with your passion
who have done the things you want to do
and go and learn from them.
If you're lucky enough,
they might actually be in your life.
You might not need to go online
and watch a course from someone
that you don't know.
You might have the perfect mentor
in your life right now,
but please, please, please
don't take advice from people
who don't know what they're talking about.
Go to the best in the business.
We can do that now. It's 2022.
There are so many opportunities out there.
Don't let old ways disturb your vision.
All right, guys.
That's all for this week.
Put in the comments what your passion
or industry is and where you're
going to have a look to find the help
that you need to get to the next level.
If you have any questions,
I'd be happy to help
put it in the comments
and I'll reply to you with what
I would recommend
or some resources that you can start with.
All right, team. See you later.
Would you take baking advice from a banker?
This week, I’m urging you to be very selective about who you take advice from.
People love to share their opinions, but a lot of the time they are not backed by much knowledge or experience. They truly are just guesses, expressed with confidence.
You have the option to disregard these opinions and go to someone who has actually achieved the outcome you are looking for. With so much content available online, there's no excuse to not be continuously learning from people who are experts in their subject matter.
Be cautious of ‘experts’ on the internet though. There are a lot of people posing to know what they are talking about, but really they have not experienced what they are teaching.
I personally like to go to the best in the biz!
My favourite ways to learn from these people are:
This week I want you to look for people in your industry, people with your passion, who have done the things you want to do, and go and learn from them!
