When Tony Robbins, Frank Kern and John Reese sit down and talk about the seriousness of being a winner, an achiever and getting stuff done: we listen. This is what they did, and it's a really powerful video that, to be honest, is one of the first videos which explained the problem of “getting started” to me.
This video is a little bit silly at first, though it then starts out with Frank and John talking about a problem they both see with their fans, customers and people in the world in general. They see that out of all those people who buy their products, the statistical average is that 70% of people will NOT even start going through the product. This is a very scary statistic!
Eventually Frank and John meet up with Tony to get his opinion and insights into this problem. And that's where everything gets interesting.
Tony brings up many great points starting out:
- Some people are stuck in analysis paralysis.
- Getting started, that first step, is usually the biggest hurdle.
- What people generally lack is that real deep drive. That “back against the wall” motivation …
- But the “back against the wall” no-way-out motivation isn't the big key. It's just having some sort of drive forward (e.g. a real goal) to strive for.
- You shouldn't compare yourself to the experts level of success. Because you are not them. ALL the experts started somewhere. Frank and John both started at the bottom with practically nothing …
- Even with nothing, they built something. But they took it step by step. And EVENTUALLY they got somewhere.
- Having the overriding goal/picture is key. But it's also important to not stress out over those major hurdles. Take it one small step at a time. That is what will get you there. Just put one foot forward at a time. That's it. One step.
There are more great bits of information in that video. It's extremely motivational and thought provoking. So give it a watch and see what you can come up with.
