Yes You Can (If You Practice)

One of my children, Nick, has stuck with his music. Everybody in the family’s rather musical, whether it’s singing or playing instruments or whatever. But Nick is really an exceptional guitarist. He can play many styles of music.

At a gig his mother and I went to a while back with his band, we were sitting and listening to the band play and it was in between songs. I heard a guy, sitting next to us with a friend of Nick’s say, “Boy, I wish I could play like that.”

My son’s friend glanced over at me. I looked at him and he kind of had a smile on his face because he and Nick had known each other for years. And he said, “Well, if you practice two, three, four or more hours a day like Nick does you probably will be able to play that well.” And both of them laughed. How true of a statement that is. Are you willing to put in the time necessary to be that good of a guitarist? Nick does.

A good friend, David Lanz, who’s an internationally known piano recording artist, plays hours and hours a day. People say, “Wouldn’t it be nice to play like David?” Sure, it would be wonderful to play like David. If you spent the hours he did, you could probably be pretty good too. You may never be a David Lanz, but you could be exceptionally good.

Have you wished for something but not taken the needed action to develop the skill or expertise? Sure. Every single one of us has–playing a musical instrument, learning to ski, play tennis, golf, badminton, chess. Becoming a good public speaker–knowing how to hold yourself, how to compose your thoughts, how to use your voice, the look on your face.

Maybe being a decent parent is in your magic vase, finding out what to do and what not to do. Knowing how to use time-outs appropriately, how to speak to your children in a way that they will listen to you and you don’t make them afraid.

What about controlling your own emotions so you stay more positive the majority of the time so you don’t get sucked into the cesspool of negativity. Can you do that? Yes, you can do all of this plus much, much more. But you’ve got to quit wishing and start taking action. No more excuses. You can have what you desire; you just have to go do something. You have to take action.

The Champions Mindset

For just a moment, think about that magic vase. What’s one thing you could begin doing today to start on the path to your greater success? One little thing you could do. It isn’t usually the monumental things that make a difference, it’s one step in front of another.

Could you make a phone call to talk to someone to begin moving this process forward? That’s a step isn’t it? Or maybe you could send someone an email who you’d like to talk to about this or to have partner with you on this process and you could ask them. If they say yes or they say no is actually irrelevant because you’re taking action.

Maybe you could read a book. You go and find some expertise that’s already out there. A book to me is an incredible thing. It’s a compendium of information. I’ve written three books. And those books are condensations of years of study and research and experience. If you look at what any book is, it’s a detailed compilation of massive research down to a very finite piece of work. So read a book. Find that compendium of information.

Go get yourself a mentor. We all need mentors. Nobody is so great that you no longer need to grow and learn. Do you think that exceptional basketball players like LeBron James, Michael Jordan or Kobe Bryant, have mentors? Do you think they have coaches that helped them refine their game even though they were playing at the top of their game already? Absolutely.

The Mindset of a Millionaire
Do you know how the wealthy look at the world? Where are their priorities? What are their spending and investing habits? How do they feel about opportunity, poverty, charity, and employment? The answers just might surprise you. But acquiring the mindset of a millionaire takes more than a focus on money. In fact, to the very rich, money is a byproduct of value given. This is just one crucial piece of the entire picture, revealed here in this program.
