Inspiration for the Rest of Us
I am not David Goggins, Michael Jordan, or Tony Robbins.
Nor do I want to be.
I’m not willing to make the sacrifices to reach that level of success.
I don’t aspire to be a billionaire.
I missed quota three of my first four years at Salesforce.
I struggle with ADHD and have an addictive personality.
I’m an ordinary guy with the same struggles as everybody else.
But in the past 7 years, I’ve achieved extraordinary results.
I finished as the #1 Enterprise AE at Salesforce, and made Club my final four years there.
I started a coaching business, which has already surpassed 2M in 2023 and will be an Inc 5000 company in 2024.
I ran two marathons in the past year.
I overcame a lifetime of addiction and quit multiple vices.
Most importantly, I have a loving, amazing family I get to spend quality time with every day. That’s what I’m most proud of.
After achieving high success across a variety of areas, I truly believe that most people can replicate this level of success if they follow a few basic principles.
I’ve seen it time and time again with my coaching clients.
Here are my top 5 keys to success in ALL areas of life.
1. Always work on yourself
-This starts with being self-aware and humble enough to admit that you can always get better. It always means committing to taking action.
2. Get direct help and mentorship from experts in the areas where you struggle.
-In the past 7 years, I’ve had 5 coaches, 2 therapists, a marriage counselor, a sponsor, and been part of 3 Masterminds. All offered specific help in the areas I was struggling at the time. Learning from the best and modeling what works is THE fastest path to success.
3. Set ambitious goals
-The purpose of a goal is not that you achieve it, but rather who it forces you to become in order to achieve it. Having a clear vision of what you want, and how you need to show up every day to get there, is the key to fueling your fire. The joy is in the journey of pursuing your best self.
4. Build a plan that enables you to achieve your vision.
Having a solid plan creates confidence and belief that you can achieve your vision. Then you just have to be patient and trust the process. My planning cycle is annual (RAD goal), quarterly (12 week year), weekly (weekly scorecard), and daily (calendar blocking).
5. Show up every day, especially on the days you don’t feel like it
-Success requires doing the things you don’t feel like doing, each and every day.
If you KNOW you are capable of achieving more, but could use mentorship, help, and a solid plan to help you get there, you’ve come to the right place.
This was me 7 years ago, and without the right help I would never have achieved extraordinary results.
