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!

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!

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!

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!)

“The second reason deep practice is a strange concept is that it takes events that we normally strive to avoid – namely, mistakes – and turns them into skills. To understand how deep practice works, then, it’s first useful to consider the unexpected but crucial importance of errors to the learning process.” – Daniel Coyle
