Catch up on the week that was……..

So here we are on a late Saturday afternoon with time to reflect on the week that was but how do I reflect? Do I just say what I feel or should I be open or play it safe……

One thing I wonder, is if I should scream and shout more? I feel that people take you for being you and what you want people to believe you are! One thing I do is work – why do I work?

Well, it is simple, I was educated through school, college, some university and my working career by various companies and some amazing individuals. I was able to attend some top courses, seminars, talks, launches and dinners which have had management, Peer’s, Industry Leaders, Business Owner’s & Leaders together with celebrities, sports stars and inspirational speakers/motivators and oh some top sales trainers too. Why do I mention this? Putting it simply, I have done or experienced more than most, whilst I hear and see others sing, dance, shout whilst also getting others to sing their praises when they have done nothing like I have, experienced what I have or been in a room where you experience the vibes, energy and motivation that these events generate!

On reflection, am I jealous or annoyed that these people are considered more successful than myself because they have more ‘likes’, friends or followers than myself? No, why should I be! If they want to spend all their time reading books, reading the internet or watching videos, YouTube or Hangouts – then fair play to them but wanting to do this and be one-dimensional as they say….let them walk the walk & talk the talk…..

Actually, I feel sorry for their so-called fans, followers, tribes, supporters or what ever you want call them! Why, well it is simple, I have worked and experienced what I talk about and provide – these people haven’t! Does this remind you of the saying….

“Those that can – can! And those that can’t – teach!’

So I will leave you one this one thought or should I say contemplation……

You are ill, poorly, hurt or injured – so you go to a nurse, doctor, surgeon at a Doctor’s Surgery or a Hospital because you need the best to treat you as after all they have been trained and allowed to practice because they are not self-taught!!! So if they can’t be self-taught to look after and treat you, your partner, your family…………

Why do you let self-taught people tell you how to run or advise you about your business………….

Looking for a business partner, an investor or doing a joint venture – have you drip fed?

So you get given a piece of paper with notes, paragraphs, bullet points and mentions of websites – what do you do?

Do you look at and say I can’t understand this or I don’t get this? Or do you go away, look at it all and see how things link and fall into into place?

Well this is something I have done over the last three weeks to 18 different people and businesses and the results are surprising. 

Some ripped it to pieces saying how it should be done but all they were doing was trying to sell me thier business to do what was already there and when you asked them things, they couldn’t deliever – so using them was a step back! They didn’t see the concept of working together, joint venture or partnership – just that they could sell me something even though it was a step back!

Other’s just said I don’t get it, I don’t understand or what is this about – they clearly didn’t read between the lines, link the dots, cross the t’s and see the big picture – amazing!

The amount that saw it, looked at it, thought about it and read between the lines was surprising, higher than I thought but what did appeal was that they were visionaries! Not only did they understand what I had put down and given them, they all actually came back saying what about this, you have overlooked this, if come on board I can bring this, etc, etc but I had already done this and they could see why I hadn’t given them the full picture……..I drip fed them the parts to enable them to think outside the box…..

So, next time you want to deliver something and wonder if you are involving the right people around you, just jot down some ideas, write a small single page or a few paragraphs and distribute it amongst the people you want to work with, you will be surprised at who can actually deliver and show they are of the same working platform as yourself….
