There are so many energy vampires in our lives…if you want to stand out and get noticed – just be a great person! Be a great person people want to be around.
My guest this week is Calvin Coyles, CEO and founder of Young and Wildly Successful, Australia’s fastest growing personal development company.
I’ve been helping YWS out with some coaching and sales, and thought it would be awesome to get Cal on the show to share some of the wisdom he’s taught me.
Notes from the episode:
- “Be so good they can’t take their eyes off you.” – Steve Martin
- Rich Dad Poor Dad – book you need to read 🙂
- Learn how Calvin built a million-dollar business in under a year – at age 25!
- Why Calvin believes in mentorship so strongly
- Did you know it takes 68 days to create sustainable habits that will lead to to mastery?
- 3 levels of learning: the ‘dabbler’, the ‘high achiever’ and the ‘master’:
- The dabbler: Jumps from one thing to the next. Has a fast learning curve at the start, but as soon as they hit a plateau, they quit and move on to the next thing. And it happens in all areas of their lives – relationships, sports, activities, jobs etc.
- The high achiever: Starts something, and does whatever it takes to make it work. Hits a plateau, gets frustrated and tries harder and harder to break through. Eventually they do break through, only to hit another plateau. Plus, they’ve stressed themselves out and worked themselves to the bone in the process, and there’s no energy left to enjoy the rewards. Cue: burnout.
- The master: Understands there will be highs, lows and plateaus – and prepares for them. Finds a mentor who has gone through it all before, asks them how they did it, and models their success. Once they’ve learned everything they can from that mentor, they find another one who is even more successful.
- How to master something: 1. Do a self audit, 2. Map out what success looks like, 3. Find someone who’s done it before, and model them.
- Look to your friends and family – see what areas THEY are successful in, and ASK THEM how they did it.
