High Performance Mastermind Group

I spent hours thinking, jotting notes down, researching but I had nothing. My company was still fairly new in our industry but we had been in operation for a while. Long enough that a lot of the start-up kinks were figured out. But now I was faced with a new problem. It was a situation I had never had to deal with before in this company or any of the other companies I had been involved in previously. But the toughest part was that I just couldn’t figure out a solution that I was happy with. Sure, I was coming up with a lot of different ideas and plans, but the more I thought about them, the more I realized they were not the answer. 

One evening I was at an event that a number of other entrepreneurs there that I knew. A few of us ended up sitting at a table together and once the evening wrapped up we all stayed and spent some time talking about each others businesses, successes, failures and challenges. During our conversations I brought up the issue that I was dealing with and it just so happened that one of the ladies at the table had dealt successfully with a very similar situation in her company. After she told us what she did, we all discussed it more until we figured out the best way it would work for me.

This was when I discovered first hand, the power of a Mastermind Group.

The first time that I had heard the concept of a Mastermind Group was from Napoleon Hill. In his book, Think and Grow Rich, Hill described the Mastermind principle as, “The coordination of knowledge and effort between two or more people who work towards a definite purpose in a spirit of harmony… no two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third, invisible intangible force which may be likened to a third mind,” also known as the Mastermind.

It’s incredible what can happen when you bring people together to solve a problem or make a plan. When you combine the power of a number of different personalities, perspectives, experiences and knowledge a lot can be accomplished or discovered. 
Jim Rohn once said, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” Who you spend your time with influences the person that you will eventually become. This includes every area of your life from wealth, to health, to styles and more. Take a look at yourself. Who are the people you spend the most time with? Now take a look at your similarities. Interesting isn’t it? Are you spending time with the people that will help you grow and take your business to the next level?

When you join the right Mastermind, one that is a committed and dedicated group of individuals, you can take your life and your business to another level. The group can raise the bar by challenging one another to create and implement larger goals and to help each other figure out the path that is needed to accomplish them. 

I’m excited to let you know that we are in the process of developing a High Performance Mastermind Group. If you would like more information or would like to be added to the list of those who want more details once the group is ready to launch, you can fill out the form on below or visit our High Performance Mastermind Page HERE!

Book Quote of the Week – 135

“The FASTEST way to getting back on my feet is to find the right customer who will advertise for me through word-of-mouth referrals.”

Julie Stoian

Thank you Luther!

Last week I was headed down the freeway going to Phoenix for an appointment with my wife. The freeway was very busy. All of a sudden the car in front of us hit some wood on the road and pieces flew everywhere. There was too much traffic for me to switch lanes and totally avoid it so I just did my best to miss as much of it as I could. Shortly after that we heard a pop but we didn’t know what it was, until a second later my “low tire pressure” indicator lit up on my dash. When I hit the debris on the road it made me blow a tire.

We got pulled over onto the side of the road. I’ve changed a lot of tires in my lifetime but it’s never easy with the wimpy little tools that come with your vehicle, and I was in nice clean cloths. So I wasn’t too excited about getting into it. As I was getting under the back seat of the truck to find the jack, someone walked up behind me. I turned around and there was a guy with a big gun holstered on his hip and tattoos on his arms and up his neck. Yes, those were the first things that I noticed.

Long story short, his name was Luther and he was the nicest guy. He asked if he could help. He goes back to his truck pulls out a legit floor jack and some good tools. Rather than me struggling with things for an hour, he had our tire changed in about 20 minutes. He saved us so much time, stress and dirty cloths and we were able to get back on the road to our appointment.

When he was all done I asked him what I owed him. This is the best part of the whole story. He told me that to repay him, the next time I see someone in need he wants me to pay it forward and help them out. He was an awesome guy that stopped and helped out some complete strangers and all he wanted in return was for us to do the same for someone else sometime.

Yes, there are good people out there still!

My daughter, Tia Heggie, goes on Instagram (@TiaHeggie) Live and Facebook Live (https://www.facebook.com/tia.heggie) every Monday. She calls her event Miracle Monday. This past week, my story about Luther was shared on Miracle Monday. To me, Luther being there at the exact time, stopping and helping us was a miracle. Tune in and listen to Tia and hear about more miracles she has witnessed or miracles that people have sent in to share with her.

What Does It Take To Succeed When You’re In A Slump?

I love this time of the year. NBA Playoff Games are on almost nightly. It’s so interesting to watch how different teams, players and coaches try to use their strategies to win each game. We were watching the Utah Jazz against the Houston Rockets. James Harden gets the ball in the corner, outside the three-point line. Then one of the strangest things happened. Instead of staying between his man and the basket, his defender literally got behind him, to his side. He was almost out of bounds on both the sideline and the baseline. My wife looked at me and asked what he was doing. In all my years of coaching basketball I’ve never tried that defense before, I didn’t know what he was doing. But soon, as the Utah Jazz continued to defend Hardin this way we (and the announcers) started to figure it out. One of James Harden’s most effective moves is the step-back three point shot. He’s deadly! Utah’s strategy was to give Harden the lane to the basket and they would count of the help defense when he did that. But they were not going to allow him to have his step-back three point shot. It really was pretty crazy to watch. Utah ended up losing the series but really, their defensive strategy agains Harden was quite effective, and interesting to say the least.  

The series we’ve been watching now has been the Golden State Warriors against the Houston Rockets. I’m a Warriors fan, my wife is a “Whoever is Playing Against the Warriors” fan. So we have fun watching it together. The Warriors have so much talent on their team. The one who stood out to me in the last game (Game 5) was Klay Thompson. He really hasn’t been playing well so far this series. But in this game it took him less than eight minutes to surpass his total scoring from the Game 4. “Klay Thompson is out of his slump!” were the words of the announcers. When I heard this from the announcer it made me think of a lesson I had learned from Tony Robbins which is applicable to sports, business or pretty much anything in life.

What Does It Take To Succeed (from Tony Robbins)

Tony explains that there is a pattern between (1) Potential, (2) Action, (3) Results, and (4) Belief/Certainty. They are all connected as in the diagram below and they create a never ending flow.

As Tony explains how all these are related it makes a lot of sense. But that’s not what I’m going to focus on right now. What I’m going to focus on is what we have to do to get out of a slump. As we go through this pattern, most people don’t reach their full potential because they don’t take massive action. Thus their results are not as good as they could be. Those results then form their belief or certainty, which are lower than what their true potential really is. 

Fortunately it works the other way too. As individuals take massive action and produce incredible results their belief and certainty in themselves goes through the roof. Their potential is expanded, followed by more massive actions, more big results, more certainty, etc.

So what do you notice about Klay Thompson, one of the premier shooters in the NBA, when he gets in a shooting slump? He stops shooting? He only looks to pass the ball? That’s what a lot of people would do. But that’s not what the most successful people do. Whether it’s in sports, business or something else, they keep shooting!

When you’re not getting the results you want, you start to doubt yourself, you become uncertain. That’s the beginning of your downward spiral. 

To get out of your “slump” you need belief or certainty. But if you’re in a slump, how do you get certainty? You get certainty and change the direction of the downward spiral by getting the results in advance. That is why, when you see an NBA playing in a shooting slump, they don’t stop shooting. They are playing at an elite level. They have been shooting thousands and thousands of shots for years and years. They’ve practiced every possible scenario they could face and they’ve made those shots in practice. When they are missing their shots, they keep shooting because they are certain they can make the next one, they’ve done it millions of times before. And when things start falling for them again, watch out!

It works the same with everything in life. As you put more time and effort into doing things you become more certain in yourself and in turn you see an improvement in your results. So the next time you are in a “slump” keep going. Build your certainty by visualizing all the success you’ve had in the past. Visualize yourself doing it. Your mind does not know the difference between something you vividly imagine emotionally and and something you actually experience if you do it enough times. Believe in yourself, create certainty!

Mental Health

Mental health is a topic that can be hard for some people to talk about. A number of years ago I went through a time period that I had to deal with depression. To this day, there are very few people that know about that because I’ve never talked about it. There’s a stigma with it that made me feel ashamed for having to deal with a mental health issue. But that is totally the wrong attitude to have when it comes to mental health. I’ve broken bones in the past. I wasn’t ashamed to admit that I had injured myself and accept help. Mental health should be no different.

My daughter is currently serving a mission for our church in Halifax NS Canada. For about a year she has been dealing with depression and anxiety at different levels and at different times. For a girl that has such a strong personality, that is use to being in control and at the top of her game, it is tough to deal with. As an athlete she’s able to push herself past what other people thought were impossible levels to surpass. She’s always been strong, she’s always been a leader. So to have something like this beat her down almost to the point of submission was devastating. 

She has had some very difficult days and weeks in the recent past. But the past couple of weeks she has had a very good attitude about dealing with it and is doing quite well. She has an incredible support system there in Halifax and literally throughout Canada and the United States. Today she did something that I thought was extremely brave for a 19 year old girl to do. On Facebook (http://facebook.com/tia.heggie) and Instagram (@tiaheggie) she posted a video acknowledging her struggles and encouraged anyone else who is dealing with anything similar to talk to someone and to seek help. She wanted to “open up about it in hopes that it would help someone.” 

It’s touching to read the comments people have posted to express their love and support to her. But in addition to the love and support, many people have thanked her for talking about it and go on to express how they have or are dealing with similar mental health issues themselves.

It shouldn’t be something anyone is too ashamed to talk about. There is help, there is support. There are too many that need someone to talk to, but they refuse to open up. Help is available, accept it. 

I love you Tia! I’m proud of you. I’m proud of all you do. You are making a difference in the world. You are changing lives!

You Can Do Hard Things

An Excerpt, with some minor edits, from a note I was sending someone hoping to help them in a tough spot. I wanted to share it here as well, just in case someone reads it that could gain something from it.

You have been searching for answers and feel that you are not getting them. I can promise you that there will be a day when you look back on this time and will be able to see blessings that you cannot see now. You will be able to see where His hand was guiding you. You will understand the Why. Why you had to go through this trial. Why it wasn’t easier. And that is how you will make a difference in the world for many, many people. There are people near you that need you now. There are people nowhere close to you now that are going to need you. Everyone is dealing with their own struggles and challenges and they need help. Most can’t be helped by someone that has the book smarts on the struggle. But the person who can make a difference, the person who can change their life, the person who can save them is the one who has been there. The one who has been in their shoes and has conquered that challenge. My friend lost a baby boy and a brother in a short period. Nobody could really help her through those difficult times that hadn’t been through something similar. But now, she can take those tragic experiences and help many others going through their own tragic times. I often recall an old Young Woman’s theme, “I can do hard things.” Every hard thing that you have pushed yourself through, whether it was in a relationship, a sport, in business or something else has prepared you for something you will go through and deal with at some point in the future. Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.” You’ve been through hard things in the past and it has strengthened you. You are going to go through hard things throughout your life and they will continue to strengthen you. Right now may be the hardest thing that you have had to deal with up to this point of your life. You can do it. You will grow from it. You are amazing. YOU are going to make a difference in the world!

The Best $100 Investment You Will Ever Make!

Russell Brunson is a name and face I’ve seen plastered all over the internet for a long time. I’ve known a little bit about his company, ClickFunnels, but only to the degree that it’s an online marketing company.

Recently he caught my attention with a great hook. It said, “What would I do if I lost it all?” That got me curious and took me right into his funnel. The next thing I know, I’m signed up for the One Funnel Away Challenge.

As an entrepreneur I love to hear the stories of other entrepreneurs. I love hearing how they got started, where they’ve failed and where they’ve succeeded. So this is what got me excited about the One Funnel Away Challenge.

Here’s how Russell explained the challenge:

Recently, I asked 30 of my ‘Two Comma Club’ members (those who have generated over $1 Million+ inside their ClickFunnels funnel) a very loaded question…
“You Suddenly Lose EVERYTHING…
You lose all your money, along with your name and reputation, and only have your marketing know-how left. 

You have bills piled high, and people harassing you for money over the phone. 
Plus, you have a guaranteed roof over your head, a phone line, an internet connection, and a ClickFunnels account for only one month.


You no longer have your big guru name, your following, or JV partners. Other than your vast marketing experience, you’re an unknown newbie.
What Would You Do?
(From 
Day 1 To Day 30) If You Knew You Only Had ONE FUNNEL To Make Back Your Millions?” 

Each of them replied to my email with a brilliant detailed 30-day plan of what they’d do to get back on TOP. 

They broke it down day-by-day… 

“Day 1, I’d do this…  Day 2, I’d do this… Day 3, I’d do this…”  

Each of them laid out a complete 30 day battle plan to get their business back on track…starting back at “square one” with:
 No Product…
 No List…
 No Traffic…Running Errands… 
 No Reputation…
 And No Funnel…

The “30 Days” book is a GIANT 550 page hardcover book of ALL their compiled battleplans (Day 1 through Day 30).

30 chapters… 30 action plans…

You can actually flip through the pages day-by-day, and SEE the “big picture” of their ONE FUNNEL plan laid out right in front of you! 

You can HOLD it in your hands…

You can page through, and reference it as you try out new business ideas…

You can highlight key ‘a-ha’ moments’ as you read, and make notes in the margins… 
If you’re starting from scratch (or starting again), with no name, no reputation, no list, no money, no traffic, and no product…
The One Funnel Away Challenge is what I would do, from Day 1 to Day 30, if I lost everything, and had to create ONE FUNNEL to get back on track!  

Now that is something that gets my attention. Wanting to hear all those stories excites me. I love reading autobiographies to see how different people built their businesses. But this one is unique! 30 successful entrepreneurs walking you through a day by day plan of what they would do if they had to start over again.

I spent the $100 to join the One Funnel Away Challenge. I’m a week into it and I can definitely tell you that I’m not disappointed. I have learned a lot about marketing, sales and funnels. It’s not just another course that you may or may not use the things you are taught. From day one you are taking action and creating your business. But I’ll tell you what. If I had spent the $100 and only got the 550 page “30 Days” book, it would have been money well spent! This book is Golden! The things shared in it are invaluable!

Do You Have To Do Everything Your Coach Asks?

Early in my career when I was a bank manager there were many things about my position that I enjoyed. I loved working with customers, analyzing their businesses to find the best solutions for them, and I loved coaching and mentoring my staff. Before I was in this position at the bank I had a manager who was a great coach to me. He mentored me well and taught me a lot about being a manager and a coach. 

Throughout my career, coaching is one thing that I’ve continued to enjoy and today I love working with clients to help them work on their businesses, leadership and their personal lives. But whether I’m working with one of my clients, my own team or even the basketball team that I coach, there is one thing that drives me crazy. 

What is it that drives me crazy?

It’s when something doesn’t work out because they didn’t do the things that I knew would work. It’s when my client, team or players don’t listen to me. 

That is the reason that I’m writing this right now. Lets flip the situation around and put me in the client’s seat. Even though I’ve always loved coaching and leadership I’ve never done much in the way of writing or publishing. My coach has recently been talking to me about “finding my voice.” He wants me to start publishing on a regular basis, even if it’s only for my own benefit. He told me to write articles, blog, use Facebook Live, podcast, it didn’t matter. Just start doing something and share it somewhere.

Later when I was alone I sat down to my computer and thought about it. I understood what he was wanting and why it would benefit me. But my thought was that maybe journaling would be good enough. I would do all the writing, I just wouldn’t publish it anywhere. But then I put my coaching hat back on and thought about it some more. From a coaching perspective, I know why he wants me to do it. I also know as a coach how I would feel if I asked one of my clients to do this but they didn’t. 

As a client, team member or player, if you want to grow and benefit from what your coach can do for you, you need to be all in. You need to do the things you are asked to do, even if it’s hard. Sometimes the task isn’t what you learn the most from. It’s the discipline of going through with the task that is the real teacher.

This Challenge Is EXACTLY What I Need

ofa_share-image.png

Earlier this morning I had the post below ready to go but hadn’t pressed Publish yet. I was sitting at my desk reading from the book that you receive when you join the One Funnel Away Challenge.
 
 
It’s absolutely incredible what you can gain from this Challenge. But, if you didn’t get anything else besides this book, it’s worth it’s weight in GOLD!
 
 
Russell Brunson sent a brief email to over 100 of his ‘Two Comma Club’ award winners…
 
 
Inside that email was a single question…
 
 
Here’s what it read:
 
 
“You suddenly lose EVERYTHING in your business (your money, your big name, your list, your affiliates and JV partners, all of it)…You have bills piled high, and people harassing you for money over the phone.
All you have is a roof over your head, a phone line, an internet connection, and a ClickFunnels account for only ONE MONTH.
Other than your vast marketing experience, you’re back to being a newbie…What EXACTLY would you do, from Day 1 to Day 30, to save yourself?”
 
 
This book is 539 pages of these experts step-by-step answers. It’s absolutely amazing!
 
 
 
You can find out more right now at this link: One Funnel Away Challenge
 
 
 
 
Now, here’s my original post from before I got so excited about the book:
 
 
This year, I’m putting a huge focus on IMPLEMENTATION in my business.
 
We live in a world with soooo much information right at our fingertips.
 
Almost anything we need to know is literally a few clicks away…right?
 
But here’s the thing…
 
All the articles you sift through to find out how to grow your business online…
All the business books that you read…
All the infoproducts that you buy…
All the courses…
 
They mean almost NOTHING if you don’t actually execute.
 
But imagine if you took just ONE plan to start and grow your business (or next business) online, and hyper-executed EVERYTHING…
 
ONE plan well executed is infinitely more powerful than knowledge from 50 books that you do nothing with…right?
 
So here’s my challenge for you:
 
I’m challenging you for 30 days to TAKE ACTION on your business, and get your funnel built and launched.
 
It’s the SAME challenge that Russell Brunson just gave to me, and I accepted!
 
It’s called the One Funnel Away Challenge!
 
It’s designed to FORCE entrepreneurs to stop working on stuff that doesn’t matter, and start implementing the KEY tasks that will get your funnel LIVE, and your business flowing…
 
In 30 days, you’ll have a funnel that is built and LIVE, and ready to gather leads and sales.
 
If you’re the type of person who vaguely knows what to do, but just needs to buckle down and DO IT… then this Challenge is going to be the kick-in-the-pants you need EVERY DAY until you get your funnel launched!

Would you know what to do in this situation?

A few months ago, legendary marketer and friend Russell Brunson sent a brief email to over 100 of his ‘Two Comma Club’ award winners…
Inside that email was a single question…
Here’s what it read:
“You suddenly lose EVERYTHING in your business (your money, your big name, your list, your affiliates and JV partners, all of it)…You have bills piled high, and people harassing you for money over the phone.

Other than your vast marketing experience, you’re back to being a newbie…What EXACTLY would you do, from Day 1 to Day 30, to save yourself?”
He started reading through the crazy detailed plans, mapping out what they’d do day-by-day…
They sent him incredible, creative blueprints for how to get their business back up and rolling again, and generating income and leads in just ONE MONTH.
Every Two Comma Club expert had a different answer, and used a different strategy…(which is really, really cool!)
Each of his 30 speakers are going to answer that question for you IN DETAIL during the summit.
They will lay out their step-by-step detailed ACTION PLAN (Day 1 through Day 30) for how they’d get their business up and rolling…
…and each plan is DESIGNED to start out from ZERO.
Meaning, even if you have:
NO LIST…
NO AUTHORITY…
NO INCOME…
NO AFFILIATES or PARTNERS…
Even if you’re starting out truly from “Square One”…this summit is pre-engineered for YOU to succeed starting from SCRATCH!
THIS IS THE SUMMIT YOU NEED TO ATTEND!

Daxon Heggie 2018/19 Sophomore Basketball Highlights

Another season of basketball has gone by in a flash. My son, Daxon, played for American Leadership Academy in Queen Creek, Arizona. He had a good season and grew as a player. I’m looking forward to watching him develop more over the coming years. His dedication and work ethic are going to open up opportunities.
