Now, I don’t want you to walk away with a bunch of clichés. Again, I believe in being a straight shooter. So, it is important for you to remember that there are various steps in getting anything right. There are various aspects of what this book-set (Radiate the Brain & Change the Game) offers you. If you truly want to change your circumstances and your way of life, you will need to be honest with yourself and subscribe to what I’m sharing.
There is always more than one way of doing things. Since you’ve made the initial effort of investing in yourself via money and time, I suggest you demand your payoff. Let me prove to you that you have what it takes and with a little guidance you can yield the desired results that you deserve!
This specific method will work if you work it. You cannot pick and choose what you like and expect to get the end result of what the book offers. If you do that, please contact me after the fact and share how you did it.
If there are things that you already know and those things are working, that is great. My suggestion would be to adopt the new elements from the book; this will put you ahead of your learning curve. An additional suggestion is stay connected to the source. My contact information is in this book, and I’m totally open to you as a resource.
The world is filled with plenty of information from the World Wide Web or the Internet. Most of the media tools cross reference with the Internet. Think about it: cell phones, net-books, tablets, laptops, desktops, game consoles, television, and I’m sure, as I mentioned before, there will be more things created as time evolves.
I haven’t even mentioned the applications or software that enhances our gadgets. My point is that these things serve as great tools and resources, but they also serve as some of our greatest distractions.
It takes an extremely focused person to have access to any or all of the above mentioned items and not be distracted. While writing this book, there were numerous times that I was distracted because my cell phone hummed, rang, or vibrated.
In order for an athlete to remain skilled, he has to do the things that athletes do. He or she has to stay plugged into what made them strong, what kept them conditioned, what kept them abreast of their sporting rules or best practices. That will remain the same with any industry or profession.
Musicians look at what other artists are doing and how they are executing their craft. At one point in time, to record a record you would have either a full orchestra or a full band in the studio along with the artist.
Each instrument would have a microphone to play into or to pick up that instrument’s sound. Of course, some instruments were too loud and the sound person, also known as the engineer, could not isolate the individual instruments, so they had to learn new ways of recording music.
Eventually, they created a way to record the instruments separately, and today they don’t even need musicians. However, if you are in that industry you need to have a working knowledge of the do’s and the don’ts, or you will either spend more money than you need to or not be savvy enough to compete with the other artists (professional) in your industry.
It’s all about staying plugged in to the source. As a speaker or trainer, you have the same nuances. Sometimes it’s about association fees, it’s about marketing, it’s about subject matter, but whatever it is, if you’re not plugged in, you will find yourself on the outside looking in.
