Are you not getting what you want? Here is why…
If you ever get the chance to go to Austin Texas, go! The slogan of Austin is “Keep Austin Weird”. But if you stand back and think about the word “weird” it normally has negative connotations. But if you step back even further you will realize that “weird” is just something we don’t understand.
One of my favorite things about Austin is the different types of food. When weird people use their ideas, they are able to create things that I would have never thought of. So in the spirit of being weird, I got out of my comfort zone and try some different things. I got on Yelp (which is an awesome thing when you travel) and found a local sandwich shop. It was kind of weird because they had a BLT (can’t get too far away from my comfort zone) that the “L” was actually spinach!!
It was noon on Friday, and only had was picnic table sitting outside. Of course you had to share with other people that are weird. I sat next to a young guy who had a dog and was drinking a beer. In the course of the conversation I asked him what he did. He said he was an Internet marketer. Now this guy was about 23 years old. And I’m trying to think of what a 23-year-old guy drinking beer on Friday afternoon with his dog at a sandwich shop would be able to market.
He said that he and his brother developed dailyinfographic.com. I was shocked because I go to that site. He said he had 10,000 to 50,000 unique visitors a day. So my mind starts racing and wondering if he could help build websites for me. He quickly pointed out and said he knew nothing about the backend that he only was a visionary. Visionary!! This 23-year-old weird kid has vision?
Then I really started to think about it that, he was able to go and have lunch with his dog and have a beer (which they give away free on Fridays at the sandwich shop) every Friday. That weird kid was an entrepreneur, he was a business person.
When I got back to Fredericksburg I looked at The 6 Personal Perspectives of Keller Williams Realty. One of the very first things I saw was limiting beliefs. I had to think about my encounter at the weird sandwich shop, with a weird kid, in a weird place. I began to realize that everything seemed quite normal to me.
Six Personal Perspectives of Keller Williams Realty.
Step 1: Commit to “Self-Mastery”
Step 2: Commit to the 80/20 Principle
Step 3: Move from E to P (Entrepreneurial to Purposeful)
Step 4: Make Being “Learning Based” the foundation of your action plan
Step 5: Remove limiting beliefs
Step 6: Be accountable
This weird – normal young man had no limiting beliefs. The world was at his command and he could do exactly what he wanted to do.
Take some time to identify find the things that are holding you back. Work on those things. No longer allow them to limit you. Defined your success and achieve it.
And by the way, I think I’m feeling a little weird now too…
