Simple Triangle to Life
I know most of you have heard of Brian Tracy, and I want to talk about how applicable his ideas are. Have you ever seen Brian Tracy's Golden Triangle? Let me explain it to you in just a few minutes. You could pay thousands of dollars to attend his seminar, but I'll give you a brief overview. It's incredibly awesome and relevant to network connections in your franchise.
The most important thing in your life, which affects everything else, is your self-esteem. Throughout the day, our self-esteem is constantly influenced. How we feel about ourselves at the core determines our actions. It affects whether we feel motivated to make calls, schedule launches and learn sessions, help people, or contribute. Our entire life revolves around our self-perception. Recently, at the age of 65, I've undergone a significant transformation in my life. I've realized that the more I contribute, the better I feel about myself. It's astonishing to me that in the past 30 years, during my final push to contribute as much as I can, this realization has dawned on me.
Personally, I was raised by an old-school football coach who didn't focus on building my self-esteem. That wasn't his way, and it was not the norm for most parents at that time. Criticism, shame, and other negative approaches were prevalent. Although he was doing his best, he wasn't focused on building up my self-esteem. In contrast, my wife and I have established a rule in our household for our three youngest children. We don't criticize them. Of course, it doesn't mean they can run wild without boundaries. Instead, we look for other ways to reinforce positive behaviors. Our goal is to foster incredibly high self-esteem in our children.
If you are concerned about how you feel about yourself, it's actually easy to change. Simply affirm to yourself, "I have great value, and I'm willing to offer it." If you're not comfortable saying it out loud right now, at least type it in the chat: "I have great value, and I'm willing to offer."
The second aspect of Brian Tracy's Golden Triangle is responsibility. Responsibility is essentially our ability to respond to different situations. Let me give you an example. I used to coach a junior golf team, and there was a girl named Sasha on my team for five years. No matter what happened, Sasha always made an excuse for her performance. Rain, wet conditions, wind, or any other factor became an excuse. In my family, we have a phrase that we use when someone starts making excuses: "You don't want to be like Sasha, do you?" We emphasize the importance of being accountable. If you're interested in exploring accountability further, I highly recommend Brian Tracy's book called "No Excuses."
During college, I had to take a course in metaphysics, which I initially hated. I couldn't see how it would be valuable in my life. However, metaphysics is essentially the study of the mind. As far back as Aristotle, it has been recognized that people's ultimate pursuit is happiness. This timeless quest for happiness, income, peace of mind, and security hasn't changed. Our ability to accept responsibility for our lives impacts our happiness significantly. Each day, we encounter various challenges and obstacles. How we respond to them determines our overall happiness. Does that make sense? Your ability to accept whatever comes your way and rebound from it has a tremendous impact on the success of your franchise.
To raise your self-esteem, you must be accountable. There's no other option. Making excuses only breeds negativity, and you can't contribute to others when you're in a negative mindset. Think of negativity like holding a spinner pencil in your hand. If you hold it for five minutes, your arm may start to hurt. Hold it for an hour, and the pain intensifies. Hold it for five hours, and your hand becomes numb, causing extreme discomfort. The same applies to negativity in our lives. If we don't want negativity, we need to let it go. Negativity will always exist, but we can choose not to hold onto it.
When you have high self-esteem and are responsible, it becomes easier to find happiness. It's a simple equation. Therefore, it's crucial to be accountable and accept whatever comes your way—today, tomorrow, next week, or even this year. I genuinely believe that this year can be transformative for each of you. I've attended numerous seminars, from Anthony Robbins to Brian Tracy, seeking new insights. While some ideas may feel repetitive, one thing remains true: if you want a different result, you must be willing to do things differently. And that's precisely what this franchise opportunity can offer you—a chance to change your life.
There are three reasons why this franchise decision can be life-changing. First, we provide you with the tools you need; all you have to do is execute. Second, it's simple math: if you want to make more money, find more people to help. You can improve your sales skills or increase your self-esteem to attract more customers. Lastly, if you commit to this path for around 14 months, you'll have the freedom to live life on your terms. I'm currently living my dream—I can leave whenever I want, go on vacation with my family, and spend quality time with my loved ones. I hope each of you can achieve the same.
If you want to be successful and feel great about yourself, find ways to contribute and help others. Moreover, keep expanding your network of people to contribute to. This will elevate your self-esteem to new heights. There are people out there who need you, so embrace this opportunity to make a difference. I wish you all a fantastic day, and thank you for being here. See you tomorrow!
