Your Gosh Attitude

Each of the last 5 years, the legs have become stronger, the apprehension of the next 14% grade hill has dissipated, the Unstoppable confidence continues to grow that no distance on a bike is too far and there is no hill that is off limits. And the results don’t lie. A Century (100 miles or 161 kilometers) is now finished in less than 6 hours in most cases. All of these accomplishments involve my outside of business passion – road bicycling. It didn’t used to be that way.

As I recently peddled recently through the hills, canyons and the peaceful back roads covered by oak trees not far from our home, I thought about some people I had met the day before, about their business and their lives. They mentioned on multiple occasions how they hoped this would happen and wished that would occur. As I continued to ride and pondered the conversations of the prior day, my study of a few days before that quickly redirected my focus to that of people who are truly making a difference because they are in control of their destiny. Recalling the story of a particular study about the “Gosh Attitude” caused me to take a deep breath, stand up and peddle until the adrenalin rush was at an acceptable level.

The Gosh Attitude was born by the immigrants of the early 1900’s. When they arrived in the new land, every day when they woke up, they uttered “gosh, I’m lucky to have this opportunity in front of me”. Every day, they put forth a relentless effort toward a goal they had never known. Soon many began to experience accomplishments at unprecedented levels. How many times have you heard a story about someone who came to a new country with no money and created a top-notch, multi-million dollar or more company? So what is our excuse? Complacency? Because we already have it so good, we don’t need to work hard for the desired results?

Friends, the only time success comes before work is in the dictionary. There is no magic pill. I can’t tell you how many people contact us and want to know how long it’s going to take to grow 15% or more using our system. Simple answer – are you willing to work hard and do what it takes, knowing there will be pain, failure, a change of your comfort zone with an unknown destiny date?

Pain, failure, a change of your comfort zone with an unknown destiny date-business and my bicycle has a lot in common. Guess that’s WHY my passion consistently flows at a high level for both while never being satisfied with any accomplishment. The study of the “Gosh Attitude” also revealed another keeper- “you can have anything you want if you’ll help enough people get what they want”.

As I crossed the last intersection heading for home, the sun was now prominent, another glorious day filled with opportunity in front of me. The thought of my goals made me peddle my bike with everything I had. I knew all I had to do was get to my Planning Your Plan sheet and implement, execute and take action. The good news, you have the very same opportunity every single day. There is only one thing between you and the future of your dreams – ACTION

To Your Success,

PS   Lancaster, CA Agent Gets the Tools He Needs To Double His Business:

“If Mike took 27 years to do what he’s done to pay it forward to us and he’s made it available to us, it won’t take 27 years.  My goal is to doubling the value of my agency and I want to do it in 3 years.   I had no idea how I was going to do it, now I might be able to double it in one year.  I won’t leave it at that though because I’m greedy and I wouldn’t mind it being triple the size it is instead of double.  Would I recommend UPP ?  Oh my gosh don’t miss it!!“
