Fran, FKelso, referenced a quote today that resonated with me.
"All you need is the plan, the road map, and the courage to press on to your destination." Earl Nightingale
It’s all about the training. Basic training and ingrained habits determine where you end up in life. Clearly the quality of training you receive will markedly impact the results you obtain. The training here within WA is an experience, results-based step-by-step training program you can completely rely on as a guide to success. A roadmap, if you will.
From building a rock-solid foundation on which to base your business to finessing the finer details of its continued successful operation, WA a training is simply the best available at any price. Like a good roadmap, it will get you where you want to go.
Individual results may vary dependent on niche choice and amount of effort invested, but the training is fundamentally sound and should be the anchor point of our business.
A lesson from another time
I recall an incident where one of the gifted black belts in our martial arts class was testing to advance another degree of mastery. During his test he fended off five attackers coming at him from five different directions, all of whom were black belts with higher degrees of mastery than he.
Although still standing at the end of the test, he still failed to advance to the next level. The reason, Master Eun, a Korean National Hapkido Champion, gave him was that while his fundamentals were correct, he needed to work on his technique to achieve greater speed and a flow of movement, to be more effective. The aspiring black belt’s Hapkido training didn’t fail him. His application of the training wasn’t advanced enough yet to succeed.
A year later, that same black belt tested again...he passed.
Training is sort of like gravity. How you use it determines where you end up.
The same lesson can be applied to our online endeavors. When in doubt, reference the training. When things do go as planned, refer to training on the subject. If you still can’t work it out, ask other members who have a better understanding and experience with the training. Work on improving technique, flow, or execution of the training.
Even with the best roadmap or GPS in the world, we still must navigate around the potholes, roadblocks, speed traps, and detours to get where we want to go. Those can certainly affect your ETA. The only real decision we must make is whether we really want to get where we’re going. The rest is just a matter of persistence.
We've got our roadmap. We just need to hit it until we get it.
