Last week I was in Phoenix meeting with my coach where I was surrounded by some very high earners; some of whom make in excess of $10 million a year.
Because we were in a protected coaching environment with zero judgement, everyone opened up about their experiences in the first quarter - both their successes and setbacks.
It wasn't long before I noticed that every multi-millionaire in the room spoke about their setbacks in basically the same way. It was really refreshing to hear them open up because it served as a great reminder that, while their problems may seem bigger, they still have them.
One of the four things they had in common (I talk about all 4 in the video) was a habit of quickly identifying the next step they could take, no matter how small, when they needed to overcome adversity and get back on track. And here's the important part: they took that step almost immediately.
None of them pretended it was easy. In fact, we heard some gut wrenching stories and tears were shed. Still, these folks had developed the habit of using setbacks as a trigger, exploding them into action. My early mentors helped me develop this habit and I'm certain many of you reading have it too. If you don't, here's how you form it: keep doing the four things mentioned in the video. It's really that simple...not easy...but simple.
So, what's your next step? I'd love to hear so please leave a comment!
