Business Coach 112

We’re building this wall, we’re planting trees. I enjoy that family time. I took my son out today to go buy the trees. I’m taking my son to go pick out a pair of shoes, all right. I’m honored, he wants to be just like dad, he wants the shell toed Adidas, baby.

The thing is that is something I prioritize. Family, right. Faith, family. How much time? When, specifically, will you spend time with your family.

Then there are this thing called fitness, this area called fitness. Fitness is you gotta work out and when are you going to do it. I know for me it’s just like, “Ah man, get on that machine. I could probably do something else with my time.” The thing is you’ve got to block out time for the items that get done. What gets scheduled gets done and your business coach will help you. That’s what business coaching is all about is helping you schedule time for what matters and achieve the results that you want. Fitness, right.

Then we have … You got faith, you got family, you got fitness and now we have, what? Friendships. Who should you be spending time with and who should you stop spending time with, right? Because we read the notable quotable earlier but Jim Rohn, best-selling author, multimillionaire, he says, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” Who are you hanging out with. I know a lot of Thrivers that come out to our workshops just to hang out with successful entrepreneurs and to be surrounded by them because they realize that mediocrity is accepted by mediocre people.

Nobody’s mediocre by birth, I’m talking about the choices that they make. Faith, family, finance, right? Friendship. Then there’s fitness and there’s fun. You gotta schedule time for faith, family, finances, fitness, friendships, and fun. I’m sorry I’m giving them to you in a different order so it’s hard to write them down. Let me try one more time.

Faith, family, friendship, okay, friendship, we got that. Friendship, we got that written down. Friendship, right. And then we have, what, what’s the next one, friendship and finances, and fitness, and fun. Not necessarily in that priority but you can decide your priority. Your coach will help make sure that your priorities match your action steps. Otherwise, you’re going to have dissonance, which is where you’re stating a goal but at no point are you moving towards that goal.

You’ve stated a goal but you’re not moving towards that goal. Your business coach will help you to identify your biggest limiting factors so you can focus on what matters and what doesn’t. For me, in those meetings with our photography team, I don’t give a crap about Facebook. I don’t care about how many likes we have. Do you know how many people like us on Twitter and Facebook at Thrive15. We have thousands of people who like us on Facebook and Twitter. Who cares. I care about the people that we help, right? That’s the number I track. I don’t care about the number of likes. That’s ridiculous. People like things that they don’t even like. They like it because they should like it, they like it because they should like it, they like it because their friend told them they should like it. They like it because the sales person said, “Please like my Facebook. Is there any way that you could like our Facebook. That would be really beneficial.”

I care about the people that we help, right. That’s the metric that I track.

The next move a business coach will help you execute is they are going to work with you to set three goals by creating a vision for what you want your life to be and what you want your business to look like in the ideal scenario.

We come back we’re going to get into the details of mapping out what you want your life to be like. If you’re not intentional your life will just become the result of what people tell you to do. You’re going to end up with a ton of student debt, you’re going to have a big mortgage. You’re going to have two kids. You’re going to drive a Prius. You’re going to do what society wants you to do. I believe that you already know what you want to do. We come back, I’m going to teach you specifically how to turn your life into what you want it to be. Stay tuned. Thrive Time Show.

Speaker 3: All right, welcome back to the Thrive Time Show on your radio. For many of you who are just finding this show for the first time, this is business school without the BS. It’s a business school where we don’t really get into that whole BS zone. We don’t get into your syllabus, we don’t get into humanities, we don’t get into the way you feel, about how I feet, about how we feel. We don’t get into the Tigris, the Euphrates, the Mesopotamia River Valley. We really don’t talk a lot about the periodic table. What we talk about is how to grow successful companies.

What we were just talking about was how a business coach can help you prioritize the action steps you need to take to find and solve the core problems that are creating your ongoing frustrations.

Gino Wickman, one of the business coaches in the history of the planet, unbelievable business coach, his program, called Traction. My opinion, my humble opinion, as America’s most humble man, and America’s number one business coach, is that his program is very, very good and dramatically more expensive than ours. He says this, he says, “What gets measured gets done.”

Okay, what else does a business coach tell you. Well, the business coach is showing you how to measure the core metrics that are going to move the needle. There’s things that matter that relate to your business and things that don’t matter.

I’ll give you an example. I used to own a company called Epic Photography. The people on the team, for whatever the reason was, they would constantly want to talk about being more relevant on social media. I’m going to walk you through what I know and I don’t think people know what I know but let’s assume that they do.

The average American, the average American. I want you to Google this. The average American, let’s do it. Everybody get out your smartphone, okay. Average American screen time per week. Somebody go ahead and Google that. Okay, here we go. CNN says the average American is devoting more than 10 hours per day on their devices. However, they are looking for, work with me, work with me, they are looking to spend 50 minutes on social media as a diversion. As a diversion? Yes, as a diversion. What does a diversion mean?

We might have a deeper show than I wanted to go into today. What happens is all of us are very busy, we like getting things done, we love achieving success but we need some times to relax. Some guys go grab a beer and watch football. Some guys go white water rafting. Some ladies go white water rafting, they go for a run, they go shopping, they go write a book. I don’t know but the thing is we all have a diversion. We go work out. A diversion is an activity that diverts your mind from the tedious or serious concerns. A recreation or a pastime. For you, many of you, this show is kind of a recreation or a pastime because occasionally I might just lose my mind and have a lot of fun on the show, so for you this is kind of a diversion, right.

Then there’s this area called cathartic. The word cathartic means providing psychological relief through the open expression of strong emotions causing catharsis, thus causing Facebook.

My teammates would constantly want to have me invest time and money into Facebook marketing. This is how the meeting would go. “Hey, I just want to know what are doing to make our videos go viral on Facebook. Because there’s another company in Tulsa who, they’re making Facebook videos that are viral.” Meanwhile, we’re out earning these people 25 to 1 so I don’t give a crap about the competition and what they’re doing, I care about making copious amount of cash so that I can enjoy my time freedom and financial freedom.

I want you to do, right now, Thrivers, I want you to get out a sheet of paper and I want you to write down your F6 goals. If you’ve already done this before, dust that baby off and make sure you’re headed in the right direction. Your F6 goals are the following.

F number one is faith. What do you want to do with your faith this year and how much time do you want to spend per week on your faith.

Two. Family. Today I’m going to be planting a copious … I love the word copious. A large amount, a large sum, of trees with my kids in Camp Clark in Chicken Palace where we live. We’re planting more and more trees, we’re continuing to erect the wall and we’re not getting Mexico to pay for it, so calm down. It’s not a political statement but we are building a massive wall to keep people out that we don’t invite. Just a thought.

We’re building this wall, we’re planting trees. I enjoy that family time. I took my son out today to go buy the trees. I’m taking my son to go pick out a pair of shoes, all right. I’m honored, he wants to be just like dad, he wants the shell toed Adidas, baby.

The thing is that is something I prioritize. Family, right. Faith, family. How much time? When, specifically, will you spend time with your family.

Then there are this thing called fitness, this area called fitness. Fitness is you gotta work out and when are you going to do it. I know for me it’s just like, “Ah man, get on that machine. I could probably do something else with my time.” The thing is you’ve got to block out time for the items that get done. What gets scheduled gets done and your business coach will help you. That’s what business coaching is all about is helping you schedule time for what matters and achieve the results that you want. Fitness, right.

Then we have … You got faith, you got family, you got fitness and now we have, what? Friendships. Who should you be spending time with and who should you stop spending time with, right? Because we read the notable quotable earlier but Jim Rohn, best-selling author, multimillionaire, he says, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” Who are you hanging out with. I know a lot of Thrivers that come out to our workshops just to hang out with successful entrepreneurs and to be surrounded by them because they realize that mediocrity is accepted by mediocre people.
