Thank You Chris Scott
Just recently I was reminded about events from the past. Not in a negative way. In fact, quite the opposite. It took me back to the time when I was just starting out in the world of teaching and training. The countless meetings and training sessions, designed to increase your skills and attitude.
Now back then, I didn’t know much but I did know this: The people you need to talk to are the people that have already done what you want to do. I used to look around the room and identify the different groups of people.
There is no suggestion that anyone I have come across at WA belongs in any of the first three groups but I have met many in the last one. The groups are purely observations from past encounters.
The Negative Thinking Group.
I´m proud to say, I´ve never been a member of this group. They tried to recruit me a few times but I politely (most of the time) rejected the offer.
The Wandering Wonderers
These people always seemed to just wander around and say “I wonder if…” or “I wonder what…” There never seemed to be much direction in this group and so membership was not that appealing.
The One´s Who Knew Everything
Well I say that they knew everything but it was more like that they had an opinion on everything. That opinion was that everyone else was doing it wrong. Again, if you know everything then you are clearly in the wrong room. Membership avoided.
Ok, so I was under qualified and under experienced but this was the group that I needed to a member of. Even though they were qualified, they wanted to learn more. Although they were experienced, they recognized their own mistakes. A group of people committed to continuous learning, or as the Japanese would say “Kaizen”.
Recently I have been stuck and I lost direction The world of online business is new to me and the more I did, the more confused I became. I reached out to the achievers group. Many of you came to my rescue and were kind enough to give me links to training materials. A big thank you from me!!!
While watching some of these trainings, I reached out to Chris Scott aka “The Teddy Bear” and asked him if I could send him a pm to clear up some things. To be clear, I had never met him before. He replied in an instant with “Of course buddy”. That pm conversation led to a Skype conversation in which he gave up his time for FREE to help me.
He has a special brand of humour (I liked it) and coupled with his knowledge and experience, I learned so much in a short space of time. We even spoke in Spanish for a while, although I quickly moved the conversation back towards English because his Spanish is better than mine J
Anyway, to cut a long story short, I am so motivated after that conversation and I can´t wait to get stuck into the next part of my WA journey. I´m a long way off getting my achievers membership card but as they say en español "poco a poco" (little by little)
Thank you WA community and a special BIG SHOUT OUT to Chris Scott, The Teddy Bear.
Wishing you every success
