EP197: An Interview With Damon West

Dec 6, 2019 01:03:44

Description:

On this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright is joined by Damon West, an author and motivational speaker who will be a keynote speaker at National Convention in January of 2020.

Albright had West on to talk about his book, “The Change Agent,” and to talk about what he will share with The Alliance at NatCon 2020 in Burlington, N.C.

West was a star high school quarterback, got a scholarship but was injured. He suffered from substance abuse, which led him down the wrong path in life and landed him in prison eventually.

West talked about the importance of being a servant leader in life and business. West believes that God granted him a second chance to do something with his life. He wants to make the most of the opportunity to reach other people who are struggling with where they are in life. West wants to serve others in any capacity possible. He believes doors open when you do what you believe God is asking you to do.

Positive energy creates more positive energy. Damon West plans to bring even more positivity to The Alliance at NatCon 2020. West wants to show people how to become like a coffee bean. He wants to help people change their mindset. He wants to take your belief level to a place you didn’t think was possible. West wants you to become the best version of you right now. Most people have everything they need to be successful inside of them, but we have to help get it out of them.

EP196: Why Fanatics Are Important

Nov 30, 2019 58:02

Description:

On this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright talks about why fanatics are important to a company's success.

A lot of people think another person doesn't need them. Why? We all need to help set an example for others, and we need provide people with the opportunity to be successful. We have to do this for all people. We need to set goals. That's how a dream becomes a reality. If you can get a "dream" then you can work to make it a reality. 

Get obsessed with something. Tell others. Explain it to people. Show them. Coach them. 

Start with the end in mind. What's the end goal? Results!

Evaluate skills. What knowledge is needed? Think about how and who can make it happen. 

Think about priority and activity. 

Set up yourself. Self-talk. Future. Truth. 

Go, move and evaluate. What are your most important actions? What do you need to do non-stop? It's work, more work and more work.

EP189: ABCs Of Annuities

Oct 11, 2019 01:06:03

Description:

On this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright comes to you live from his office in Burlington, N.C. Andy was joined by a special guest Chad Owen, who flew in from Austin, Texas to share his knowledge of annuities and life insurance.

What are you doing today to grow? Are you better today than yesterday? Are you actively helping other people? That’s the way to get what you want. You start helping others. The more people you help, the faster you will get what you want.

When you believe in something bigger than yourself, then you will succeed. When you are working to help people, they have to believe in what you are bringing to the table. It doesn’t matter if they have $100 or $1 million. It’s about helping people.

Failure is the same in public or behind closed doors. You have to do everything possible to win by helping people. To truly win, you must go deep and wide.

About 20 percent of the things you do are effective. The other 80 percent doesn’t matter. We have to learn to procrastinate more and stop doing the stuff that isn’t working. Put things off until later or until you don’t do it ever.

EP185: Find Winners Fast And Being A Person That Wins Fast

Sep 13, 2019 59:26

Description:

On this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast, Stephen Davies and Ed Soto discuss how to find winners fast!

On the last The Wednesday Call podcast, Davies covered identifying the kind of people we are looking for and the choices and voices that drive us to where we are going.

On this pod, we do a deep dive on the characteristics, but we want to think through two lenses: who we are looking for and how "I" need to stay and keep growing.

When you are coaching people, you will see people who will have these qualities and they reach a point of success then slow down. You will also find people that will try to "head fake" you. Don't fall in love with those kinds of people, they are the wrong people.

GRATITUDE

This is simple. Operate from a place of gratitude ... always! Don't get fooled by words when it comes to gratitude. Gratitude leads to appreciation, altruism and acknowledgement.

Through appreciation there is thankfulness and agreeableness. In altruism we find selflessness and a "love thy neighbor" attitude. With acknowledgement we see indebtedness, consciousness and the pursuit of excellence.

If somebody can't be counted on then they are not grateful.

COACHABLE

Coachable people are transparent. They don't judge without cause.

Other things we look for to find winners fast ...

Hyper Competitive

Good People

Ask Questions

People Who Make Zero Excuses

Constant Learners

EP184: Who Is Winning With The Alliance

Sep 5, 2019 01:01:20

Description:

On this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright talks to you about being a winner, which starts with hunger and desire.

Andy wanted to be successful so bad it mad him crazy. He wanted it no matter what.

How do you win? Through focus, being crazy about it and by staying determined to do it. Andy was never looking for balance. He wanted to be off balance.

What do focused people do?

What do crazy people do?

What do determined people do?

Winners share similar traits.

They have a peace and calm about them. They slow down and take a look around. When you see a deer in the road, you should try to hit it. Aim at it, look at coming traffic, glance in rear view mirror and tap the break.

When something happens, do not panic. Focus on the fix. Be the professional.

Reticular Activation System - Become clear about people, time and stuff.

Excluded Alternative Law - Do tasks with high volume payoffs.

Expediency Principle - People seek the fastest, easiest way to get what they want immediately with little concern for long-term consequences of actions. They have their own interests and benefits first and foremost. Your job is to think about other people first. If they benefit from what you offer, you both win.

Creative Procrastination - What is most important thing right now? What can wait? What doesn't matter?

"You will become as small as your controlling desire; as great as your dominant aspiration." James Allen

"Whenever you find something getting done, you find a monomaniac with a mission." Peter Drucker

“Money may not be the most important thing in life, but it is up there with oxygen.” Zig Ziglar

"There is one quality which one must possess to win, and that is definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what one wants, and a burning desire to possess it." Napoleon Hill

"Cherish your visions and your dreams, as they are the children of your soul -- the blueprint of your ultimate achievements." Napoleon Hill

Be a monomaniac on a mission.

Simplify everything!

EP180: How To Find 'Em And Grow 'Em

Aug 9, 2019 53:30

Description:

On this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright talks about how to find 'em and grow 'em. How do you find the right people and more on this pod!

When you are looking to hire a person, ask yourself the following questions.

What do they look like?

Where do they hang out?

What do you say to them?

How do you get them started?

How do you grow their self-esteem?

How do you get them to take action?

Too many people think they are the toy when they really need to be the battery that goes in the toy. People react to energy. Hands clapping ... even if it is not real energy. Fake the energy if you have to, but at least create some of it.

Talk to people about friendship and the friendship factor. What do you do to people that makes them want to be around you again? Don't be annoying! Tell people what annoying is and then tell them what people like.

Andy wants to know when you do something if you ask what daY it is or do you say let's do this noW? Are you a Y or W person?

Andy has enjoyed success because he keeps getting back on the horse. Whatever his goal is, he keeps trying. NOW. Diet? Now. Schedule? Now. Staying on schedule is huge. It's great for Y people, but you also need some W too. noW!!!

Fail, fail, fail!!! Keep trying until something works.

Here's some areas to focus on when you are working ...

warm and cold contacting

How to say hello

Creating energy

Being bold

staying with people and loving on them

How you make people feel

Let go of preconceived notions

Remember: Love is automatic, trust is extended and respect is earned. I give those things to people until they prove me right or wrong about them.

Pick the battles you want to win with people. Ask great questions. Follow up consistently. Trust comes from alignment. Show them what we are going to do and get aligned. NOW, let's go!

Grow people everywhere you are by encouraging and talking to people. Tell people you need them. Being vulnerable equals being lovable. Create friendships.

Talk freely about your feelings to create an intimacy and connection with people. Personal, Pervasive and Permanent.

Stand for something or you will fall for everything. If you are nice about everything, you do not win. Don't be passive aggressive. People love passion. Anger is needed at times, but not all the time.

EP175: How To Guarantee Success

Jun 28, 2019 53:02

Description:

On this episode of The Alliance Activity Call podcast, Andy Albright talks more about three steps you can take in recruiting that will guarantee success for you. It’s all about recruiting, getting yourself started and helping others get started too.

There are more ways to do something wrong than there are to do it right. Andy recommended the book “Shoe Dog” by Phil Knight. It talks about cowards not starting something, the weak quitting and the strong winning big. Knight said his goal in life was to not be a loser. He wanted to find a way to make his life like a game where he was able to play. Clarity comes before winning or losing is decided. Knight says life is a game, and he didn’t want to be left on the sidelines. Knight wanted to play. When Knight reached the height of success, he wished that he could relive the ride he had been on to that point. Knight believes in telling people what to do and letting them surprise you with the results you get. Momentum can overcome problems. Knight didn’t believe in setting a finish line. Beating yourself is a never-ending commitment. Don’t be a person that only wants to beat the competition. Try to outwork yourself.

3 things you have to do

Don’t quit and don’t kind of quit. Don’t shoot yourself in the foot.

Find better people that are faithful, available and teachable. Find those who are ready, willing and able.

Plug in!

Get a vision of what could be and what will be. Choose success over being comfortable. Hang around winners not people that just get by. Find a burn inside you to want it bad. Some people don’t know what is available to them so they have no reason to want more. It’s not about having fun toys, but it is about being the best you can be.

What do you want people to say about you? How about in 20 years from now?

Will you do the work? Will you make calls? God will give you the resources, but not the reward. You decide what the reward is based on your effort.

Too many people make things worse. Why do people in pain turn it into suffering? Why do people turn a benefit into a mistake? Why do bored people turn to mischief? Pain will happen but suffering is optional. Staying in pain is selfish.

Why not start with the end in mind? Teach people. Get them hooked on a mission. Get them to know there is something bigger for them.

EP171: Simple, Clear, Concise Plan To Move Your Profitability Up Now

May 30, 2019 55:07

Description:

On this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright a Simple, Clear, Concise Plan To Move Your Profitability Up Now!

People have issues. Nobody is perfect. We still have to make moves and help families.

Hope, faith and love are all great, but the greatest is love.

What’s more than knowledge? Wisdom! Love is the most powerful, fear is the most blinding. Yes, Love is more powerful than pain.

Love, fear, insecurity and familiarity are the powerful emotion that keeps us chained to a life we don’t want to live!

Sarcasm is the most destructive. It hurts our relationships. We use humor (a good quality) to make somebody else feel small. Teasing does the same thing. When we use anger, violence and threats it is not good. A person who doesn’t know why people like him or avoid him doesn’t see the big picture. What can seem benign is actually destructive.

We are all emotional. If we were all rational human beings, we would always seek to avoid pain and seek pleasure. But, we tend to shoot ourselves in the foot when we should not. We should work to build and nurture relationships. There’s no debate with emotions. No controversy and no decision. When we use our power for good that is love. When we use power in a bad way it is out of fear or anger.

Incredible acts of courage happen because of love, fear, passion and desire. The wish to be loved and appreciated can lead to incredible accomplishments. Most people want to be respected and desire it. People think we have no control of emotions. If you are curious or show an expression, it is because you are angry, upset, depressed, etc.

How can they?

How can they make you feel? An emotion you don’t want to feel or an experience that hurt is part of your heart and mind. You think about you not them. You can love a person or hate them. Thoughts and emotions are inseparable.

EP169: Recommit, Focus and Do Better

Description:

On this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright is back from Paris and Switzerland to deliver a high-energy pod where he talks about why he is ready to recommit, focus and do better every, single day!

Why do so many people worry about what other people are doing and thinking when it comes to their world? Why can't they only focus on what they are thinking and doing, and not consider what somebody else will say about their actions? This is a concept that so many people struggle with. Often times, the people who make it the worst are family members, who question anything they consider to be outside-of-the-box thinking when it comes to trying to be successful.

EP168: 5 Ways You Can Win A Cruise To Alaska

May 10, 2019 55:54

Description:

On this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast, Chris Hill delivers 5 ways you can start winning today.

Did you know that winning is an inside job? We all like to win, what is interesting is many of us never do. Why is that?

The No. 1 Rule in wining is an old football adage – Don’t beat yourself When people lose, they don’t lose because of competitors they lose because they beat themselves. Winning is not an outside job Carl Lewis – won the long jump Gold Medal in 1996 He said there were a lot better jumpers but he had A lot of good experience behind him He studied to win He talked about all the stuff on the inside before he jumped. Many people when they talk about winning they ask the wrong questions Questions those who win never ask: What are the conditions? How many times do we find people limping around saying the conditions just won’t right. Who is the competition? John Wooden – My biggest problem is not the other team, my biggest problem is us and if I can get us prepared to play to our potential it doesn’t matter who we play Winning inside is always your first victory Take Responsibility

The most important ability is responsibility.  Nothing happens until someone steps forward and takes responsibility.

25 year old – I have learned our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are but we are responsible for who we become.

What kind of influence do you want to be? - 10 Traits of a Real Leader

A True Leader loves and serves others as a life commitment Do not begin leading begin by serving A True Leader will focus on being a friend not on having friends When you make the goal of your heart to have friends, suddenly you are chasing the wrong target.  You will make decisions and mistakes all based upon the fact that you crave acceptance. A True Leader will hate inactivity but love people and respect everybody Leaders restore and empower people, they don’t tear down people A True Leader will stand for right and doesn't fear ridicule How easily are you to give in? What will make you quit? A True Leader finds success in helping others to grow and succeed They will sacrifice personal rights for the privilege of influencing others A real leader values influence more than personal rights A True Leader learns how to communicate well A True Leader has a personal commitment to personal growth A real leader values Growth more than pleasure They set their heart and mind on strengthening influences not depleting ones A True Leader learns to live a well ordered and balanced life Leaders lead themselves first Personal organization is a reflection of character and what we deem is important A True Leader cares about a Good name. Perception is reality Leaders protect their influence A True Leader is destination oriented for himself and others

If you are unwilling to do number 1 then you can turn off the tape
If you are unwilling to do number 1 then the other 12 will not help you

Listen and learn from other successful people God gave us 2 ears and 1 mouth, when you don’t listen you turn off 50% of your learning capabilities There is a relationship between winning and learning People are not successful by accident, find the key to their life and you will find the key to your life. 10 Things you want to look for when listening Commitment Excellence Integrity Time Management Attitude Relationship Priorities Solid Family Values Energy Peace We have examples all around us. Most people when they get around successful people they pick up their idiosyncrasies instead of their strengths That is why we plan what we look for before we look for it Love what you do and do it “You are the only real obstacle in your path to a fulfilling life.” – Les Brown 50% of Americans don’t find meaning at work. And only 34% of employees feel a strong connection to their companies mission Passion comes from feeling like you are a part of something that you believe in, something bigger than yourself Your purpose is your WHY. It drives your choices in life What you say yes and no to Your purpose is the North Star: it helps you focus on the big picture and on the impact you want to create. Happiness lies at the intersection of your job and purpose Motivation lies at the intersection of your job and career. Fulfillment is more profound than happiness. You are achieving something more significant, not just feeling happy about what you do.  You feel fulfilled when our career adds meaning to your life and is connected to your life purpose. You can never make a unhappy person happy by giving them more. Success is not work, it is a way of life, because you were making a contribution instead of chasing compensation. Success comes when you are clear in pursuit of WHY you want it. We all have the right to be fulfilled at work. We must be at a place where fulfillment is possible We must choose to be fulfilled Learn from your mistakes

5 Ways to learn from your mistakes

Acknowledge your errors Blaming other people or minimizing your responsibility isn’t helpful to anyone. Ask yourself Tough Questions Don’t dwell on your mistakes, but reflect on them by asking questions What went wrong? What did I want to achieve What could I do better next time? What did I learn from this? When might this situation happen again? How will I handle it next time? Write down your responses to see the situation more clearly Make a Plan Beating yourself up for your mistakes doesn’t help Make a plan that will help you avoid making a similar mistake Find a way to hold yourself accountable Make it Harder to Mess up Find creative ways to become more discipline Enlist others to help you Create a List of Reasons why you don’t want to make the mistake again Don’t try to be perfect
Deal with the perfectionism issue
Perfectionism paralyzes us and keeps us from becoming successful
Problems with Perfectionism It keeps us from being creative The messiness of creativity will never allow them to get past those boundaries It keeps us from getting started “Nothing will get done if a man waited until he could do something so well that no one could find fault with it” Cardinal John Henry Newman Most of the time perfectionist are perfectionist because they are worried about someone else picking apart what they are doing. It keeps us from being productive “Keep on going and chances are you will stumble upon something when you least expect it, I never heard of anyone stumbling onto something sitting down” Charles Kettering It distracts us from our purpose They have a hard time focusing on the big picture because they are to focused on the small details It is not attainable “Have no fear of perfection you’ll never reach it” Salvador Dali

EP166: Who Are You Competing With?

Apr 26, 2019 53:33

Description:

On this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast, your host Andy Riddle discusses why you need to find a person to compete and compare yourself to so that you push yourself to be more successful.

What do you set your thermostat on in your home? You know where it needs to be for you to be happy. Life is the same way. How do you set the temperature of your life? You will always be hot or cold based on where you are at and based on where you want to be. You can get too hot or too cold, and then you make adjustments.

How is your self-confidence? Do you talk to yourself and assure yourself that you can achieve something? The more you talk about it, the more likely you are to actually do it.

Do you trust yourself enough to follow through? Do you keep promises you make? Doing that helps your confidence in yourself.

Are you self aware? Winners know their environment so well, they take ownership of it and they are confident they can turn it around when it is not in the proper place.

Who do you hang around? Are you actively getting people that are more successful than you? Get around the heat so that you catch fire too.

Do you settle for good when great is just a few feet away? Tom Brady doesn't just want to make the playoffs each year. He wants to win the Super Bowl, and he expects to win it.

How can you compete properly in your life?

Be crystal clear about what you want. Be exact.

What is your why? Do you know your dreams and how to chase them?

Do you execute? What's the plan? Are you willing to outwork everybody? Can you be the hardest worker by 10 times your closet competitor? Compete against your standards! Compete against yourself as though you have a twin in the room.

Don't quit! If you stick with it, you will make it. Work until it works!

EP165: Why Promotion Matters

Apr 19, 2019 01:00:51

Description:

On this episode of the Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright brings you another hard-hitting pod about why promotion matters.

Springtime in N.C.is a time when flowers start blooming, pollen is everywhere and it is the time to grow. This is the time of year when people work outside and get to see the results of that work. That’s what The Alliance is doing too. We do this by watching what we see and what people do in terms of getting promoted. The fruit is what we look at here.

Facts, opinions and emotions. It’s mindset. When it comes to getting promoted you have to think ahead. How do you find people that are sharper than what you got now? You have to look … a lot. You have to talk to people … a lot. Schedule things out for 90 days so that you know how you want things to look in the future. You have to act. What’s the picture going to look like in the future.

Once you start taking action, then you have to keep doing it consistently. There will be storms that come as you try to grow. You have to weather those storms and keep pushing forward. When you have made the decision to commit to doing something, then those storms are not going to stop you. Your plan might change and you might pivot, but you will not stop and you will not quit. Doing that involves promotion. When you promote your activity, your people and your plan properly, then you have a greater chance of reaching the vision you see in your head.

The six inches between your ears in your head will determine what you do and where you go. It is about deciding. That starts by promoting for tomorrow today.

What about when a problem comes up? Stop for a second … think about what to do next. Call a person with great ideas. Write it out on paper. Formulate a plan to make the obstacle better. Then, start taking action to fix the problem.

What do you want to avoid doing? Hesitation. If you know there is a problem, you have to address the issue or it will get worse. All talk and no action will get you in more trouble.

Big dreams and big goals will yield big-time results. That involves working hard, fighting for what you want and never settling for good when you want great. That’s the mindset you want to look for in people. The right discipline and focus will cover up a tremendous amount of mistakes. When you begin to attack little mistakes and crush them, then bigger problems start to look smaller when they arise.

Green Book items are huge. ERS section will help you with sales and recruiting if you are able to apply them. Doing the basics. Follow the ATM. Attack what you can control. Lead from the front so that others will want to follow you. Break big items down into smaller pieces so you can get it done faster than if you just sit there and take no action. Control the things you can control and stay focused on those items. Stay on track and keep the main thing the main thing.

What you think about while you are awake, right before you go to bed and when you first get up each day is going to dominate what you do with your time. Focus on what can be done and not on what can’t be done.

Don’t stay focused on your current problems. Promote and plan so that those problems become something you laugh about years from now. The goal is to keep winning so that you end up having bigger problems you never even imagined before later on. There is no gain without pain. There will be a price to pay. No success comes without struggle. However, it is worth it.

Don’t let your imagination get the worst of you. Keep it clear and keep it simple. Learn how to attack life’s problems. Don’t get whipped up in a frenzy over things that are not that big of a deal.

Encourage yourself and other people. It all matters and helps raise the bar for you and those around you. Be a great teammate. Be a great friend. Be a helper, who is willing to listen and find a solution that helps a person move from despair to success.

Next week’s schedule: Monday - San Antonio, Texas; Tuesday - Duluth, Ga.; Wednesday - Lakeland, Fla.; and Thursday - Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.

EP156: 3 Ways To Get Rich

Feb 15, 2019 01:03:22

Description:

On this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright gives you three ways to get rich!

How many times have you heard a person, or even thought to yourself, “how do I get rich?”

If you have said this or heard a person say this, then let me tell you that'is OK. There is no reason to think that you can’t get rich. That’s the good news.

But, there is bad news that you must confront right now! Time is against you, it is not on your side!!!

Andy Albright makes the same money as you do, but he makes it faster and cheaper than you do.

Can you tell/sell this idea with the same enthusiasm as I Andy? It is about selling and doing the mundane. He covers this in detail on page 121 of his book, “Millionaire Maker Manual.” Once you know what it takes to make money and be successful, you must make yourself hit the repeat button. You have to keep doing it … over and over … time after time. You can’t stop or the money stops.

Excuses!

Let’s talk about excuses. These are reasons why you can’t do something. This is not about skill. This is about activity. If you can put in the work and you are coachable, then you can do what we do. If you know the formula, it is up to you to put in the time/work it takes to hit your desired goal. This can be different for you than 10 other people, but you have to define what it takes in order to get your goal on a daily and weekly basis.

Think about your favorite athlete ever. Pick a person that was a champion and at the top of what they competed in. Why do you think they were so good when the bright lights came on? I’ll give you a hint: they put in the work and did it non-stop, even when they didn’t feel like it. I like to think this is easy complicated. A person that loses innocence and has the eyes of a child will think that they can’t believe they get to do this and get paid to do it.

Forget your history and past. Let’s focus on now and move. Let’s go!

Let me tell you what I learned the last 25 years. It’s not about what people did to you, but how you reacted to how you were treated that matters most. Did you continue to overcome setbacks?

Can you allow your pain to teach you a lesson and keep going through it until things get better? This is who we are at The Alliance. This is what separates us from other people in insurance. It’s not just money. We make old feel like new. We take hopelessness and fill it up with hope. We take a mess and make people feel blessed.

You need to feel empowered, equipped and relieved. You need to feel that way because Andy was given a shot to make it and he did. You can have that same shot. There are times when it takes years for a person to get past their past. Are you the kind of person that can be patient for two, four or even six years before the leader emerges and shows what he/she is truly made of?

How fast it happens for you is up to you. Don’t wait on others to find your purpose. Help find others that have the same vision that you do for the future.

Get after it. Don’t let up. We have to start now. The clock is ticking. We can’t waste any more time. Let’s roll!

EP155: 3 Things To Help You Reach Your Goal

Feb 9, 2019 55:59

Description:

On this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright delivers three critical steps to success that you can implement today.

Plan, Schedule, Organize!

Have you heard the story of the donkey in the well. When dirt ended up on his back, he shook it off and stepped up. He kept doing this until he was able to step out of the well.

What if people faced challenges and obstacles in the same manner?

The way to success can be simplified if you are able to plan, schedule and organize (prioritize). The next step is to decide exactly what you want. If you plan to get that, you are more likely to get it. You have to execute the plan and you have to work to develop the skills it takes to get what you want.

How do you spend your time? Are you in control? Do you have great time management skills? Are you happy? Are you confident? Do you have the power? How is your well being?

No matter how bad you are, you have to learn to avoid procrastination and stay away from low-value activities. You can fix all your problems eventually. You do this by being as efficient as possible, working to be your most effective and by doing things that are as productive as possible.

You have to move from confusion to clarity and from frustration to focus. This comes from repetition and practice. You have to be result oriented.

It's about clear goals and being organized to do tasks that move you toward your dream. This means maximizing every minute possible of every day. The choices and decisions you make are created you entire life up to this moment.

What are you doing now? This is the time to make new choices and new decisions that align with what you want.

Are you using the LLC method? Are you getting a list from people you meet, are you helping them get a license to sell insurance and are you working to help them attend the next event or meeting they need to be at?

Your business, family and your health should be priorities. Be like a sniper and zero in on your target with a high-priority focus on what you are aiming at.

How do you know what is the right thing to do? If you know what you are aiming at, then it should be pretty easy to figure out what to do next. Right things should always be more important than wrong things. All your effort should involve your aim or goal at the moment you are in immediately.

The most important tasks should be your "A" tasks. These are things that get you closer to where you want to be, and they are things that need to happen now. The "A" tasks should take priority over "B" tasks. Which one gets you closer to your goal?

Let's discuss intelligence. High IQ. Did you make good grades? If not, do you at least seem intelligent? Don't act unintelligent, that is not a good look at all. Behave in a way that moves you closer to the goals and be smart about it. If it doesn't move or get you what you WANT. Don't be stupid when it comes to your behavior because it could be the difference in success and failure.

EP151: 3 Ways To Transform An Organization

Jan 4, 2019 01:00:39

Description:

On this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright shares three ways to help re-focus and transform an organization for the better.

Every team or organization wants to continue improving and working to become the best version it can be. This can be achieved in three areas.

1. Decisiveness. This is what can make you dynamic. This involves your job, your schedule, recruiting people, working leads. It also involves not being concerned with things that just don't matter. What are you thinking about? Are your thoughts helping further the mission? Are you helping accomplish the team's mission? Are you moving toward becoming the best version of yourself?

People who are unhealthy are often indecisive. They fail to move quickly and make decisions that move the needle.

2. Conflict and Unity. The best version of yourself involves using principles that create unity by providing a common and unchanging purpose. When you have proper contest and embrace healthy conflicts, you can move toward a positive solution.

This happens when you are arguing for good reason and you are fighting for something that is needed. This does NOT mean argue against each other. This is when growth happens, people learn from each other and you recognize what is needed most to help the team most.

3. Clarity. When you know the mission is king, then things start happening. Most people lack clarity about the organization's mission and their specific role in fulfilling that mission. People need to know that they matter. Leaders must lead and guide people toward the right opportunities and examples that exist in the world.

If you take the time to reach people on a meaningful level, your influence on people will rise. When people value your opinion, they trust you more and will lead you to more people. The more people you can get around, the more likely you will find success.

When people trust you and what you are doing, they are going to let you talk to their friends and family without any pause for concern. It's all about relationships. You have to talk and listen to people and let them know you care.

Put yourself in another person's shoes and try to exercise empathy for what they are going through.

EP144: How To Explode A New Organization's Volume

Nov 16, 2018 52:06

Description:

On this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright talks about the importance of driving volume up in your business.

This takes effort and work, so a lot of people are not willing to put in the time it takes to grow.

People will tell you how bad they want something, but their actions have to back that talk up or it is meaningless.

If you want to grow, you have to call people. You have to get a list and work the list in depth. That's the fastest way to drive volume up. You have to go deep and wide. That's how you build a great team.

When you find a solid person and get them started, you want to help them get a person in depth quickly. Go wide and go deep.

If you build a solid foundation and base, then you build a something amazing. The stronger it is, the more it can withstand when the pressure is applied.

Andy likes to use the example about pushing to go deeper and deeper. When you are digging a hole and you are using a post hole shovel, you can only go so far until you can’t pull the post hole shovel apart.

However, if you keep moving over to the left side and the right side of the original hole, you can dig a little deeper because the hole is wide enough to fit inside and pull the post hole shovel apart.

This is the same concept in our business!

You are the digger. The post hole shovel is your MC Backup (list). The hole you are digging is the opportunity for you to expand financially and see success in your business!

We keep digging deeper to find the gold, or in our case, find the guy or gal that is going to push your business through the roof!

What many people do both in our business and when digging holes, they get to a certain spot and they think that it is good enough.

They think that this is a good spot for them to take a break and can call it quits for the day.

The same thing happens ALL THE TIME with people in our company! And it drives me CRAZY!!

People get to this destination where it is okay to let up and take a break. They think that the person they found is the one to push them over the top and they’re just going to stop.

This is a HUGE NO!

Soon, that hole that you are digging is going to be so deep, you’ll be knee deep in a pot of gold!

And once you’re in that pot of gold, you can look up and see all the success that you have created, and all the studs you have on your side.

That is how you are going to drive your volume up. It is a consistent mind set to not take a break when you think you need to.

Keep pushing and don’t let up.

Get your list from people, call it, and get more people under you to grow as wide and deep as possible.

EP140: 3 Critical Communication Errors

Oct 19, 2018 01:02:36

Description:

On this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright gives you three critical communication errors that people make on a regular basis.

“I’ve never been more excited for our company, and we are about to go!” Belief is a big deal! Communication is the lubrication for financial affairs People mess up communication, we all mess up communication 1) People think that they are not important to tell a leader what is going on, and they think that their life is insignificant to the bigger deal NEED to communicate what is going on “You don’t tell me enough, because you don’t think you are important enough to me” If I communicate something to you, then I expect you to do it, it is your fault that you don’t do it If I don’t communicate something to you, it is my own damn fault that Communication is like two gears, you have your two gears grinding back and forth (those are the people) the communication is the lubrication to making the gears smooth.. Like WD-40 2) People get offended because they don’t communicate with them because they think you’re too important You assume that you told someone everything and they KNEW it, however they didn’t know at all. Information changes the situation Communication is the way to spread the information 3) Assume they know from the text or the email that was sent, the only way they can communicate Quit living the life of being scared and worried about getting hurt. Live a life of not afraid to get hurt, do more than expected! If you don’t have transparency then you don’t have true communication Someone needs to know that they can share affection Do you dare to talk about it, build a strong relationship, and find a friendship

EP132: Maximizing Your Financial Literacy

Aug 24, 2018 01:11:01

Description:

On this episode of the Alliance Activity call, Andy Albright drives deep on the topic of financial literacy.

Do you know where you stand with your finances? Do you have a plan moving forward to build wealth? Where are you investing heavily?

Successful people are great at acquiring assets and limiting liabilities. Think about it like water and protecting a new tree. You water it. You put a fence around it. You provide for it and protect it. If you do this often enough, that tree will bring you apples eventually.

When people are smart with their money, they end up with more of it. When they are dumb with it, it runs out quickly.

Financial literacy is needed to be successful. How many lottery winners and pro athletes have you seen end up poorer than when they hit the jackpot and had millions?

Why don't they teach more of this in school? You have to have a plan.

Rule 1: Buy assets. Next, buy more assets.

What is an asset? Most do not know the difference between an asset and a liability. Keep it simple.

Many people read all the time. However, most don't comprehend what they are reading. Read and understand. That's key.

The rich acquire assets and the poor and middle keep buying liabilities. Assets are tools that help increase your income. You want to keep growing your cash flow and keep buying assets. The balance sheet don't lie. Assets put money in your pocket. Liabilities take money out of your pocket.

Your cash flow fixes a lot of problems. A fool and his money is one big party that soon will be parted.

If you look up and find you have dug yourself a hold, you need to stop digging now so we can fix the problem sooner rather than later.

Intelligent people hire more people that can help them acquire more assets. They don't just get there alone. It takes an army.

Your top asset is your brain. Your attitude matters too. Be smart!

EP131: Marketing Advice To People That Want To Grow

Aug 17, 2018 57:59

Description:

On this episode of the Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright dishes about marketing and how to do it effectively.

Why do people do things that they know are not right or correct?

It should be your job to help them stop doing the wrong things and start changing their habits for the better. How do you do that? You talk to people.

The way to market the right behavior is by talking to people, and by finding people doing what they should be doing. You have to spread the word and make sure you are properly communicating with the people you encounter every single day.

When people are truly focused, then they can do great things. We all need encouragement and we all need daily reminders to stay on point so that we make sure we are successful.

The Alliance is on a mission to help people. If we work hard to form bonds and relationships early in the process, then we can help more people be more successful. In order to do that, we have to set the example and do the right things before we expect the same of others.

We need to connect people with other people who share interests and commonalities with each other. When we build relationships early, the success will come faster and easier than if we don’t make those connections and bonds.

EP119: Powerless To Powerful

May 18, 2018 58:37

Description:

On this edition of the Activity Call, we revisit a topic Andy Albright covered back in April when he discussed how people can overcome fear and doubt. The best thing about fear is that it is learned and it can be unlearned. The antidote to fear and doubt is courage and confidence.

This episode is all about moving from powerless to powerful!

Most people are held back by fear of failure, poverty, loss, embarrassment and rejection. Fear is the No. 1 mental issue to hold us back.

It is a process to overcome these issues. When you think of a goal, does fear overwhelm you? It’s like a little fire versus a bucket of ice water.

The second mental obstacle closely aligned is self-doubt. We doubt our own ability. We compare ourselves unfavorably to others. Too often people are thinking that other people are …

better than me

smarter than me

more competent than me

They got it all in a little pile and it is perfect and organized.

The bottom line: People think they aren’t good enough or worthy of better.

Inadequate and inferior thinking is not good.

Fear and doubt is learned. Emotion plays a big role in that mindset. Babies are not scared and they are not negative. If you put a snake in a baby’s bed, he does not fear the snake.

The higher our confidence and courage grows, the lower our fears and doubts are. Courage and confidence are developed with knowledge and skill. Most fear and doubt comes from ignorance and feeling of inadequacy. Knowledge and skill comes from doing and learning.

The Alliance calls this “Ready, Fire, Aim!” We have a one sheet available on www.NAAUniversity.com in advanced resources that covers this topic. Do and learn. People learn from attending events, listening to audios and reading books.

Psychologist have a term called “learned helplessness.” Maybe 80 percent of the population say, “I can’t.” Then, they list the reasons why they can’t.

No money

No time

No ability

“Whether you think you can or can’t, you are probably right.” Henry Ford

The solution: white sheeting

Small goals and simple plans. Work on them each and every day. You will develop insane courage and confidence. Little by little you history of success will start to add up to bigger achievements. It happens a little bit at a time. You can build up a huge history and grow up some strong overcomers.

Another mental obstacle that creeps in on people is “comfort zone.” Even achievers can become complacent. The comfort zone is a major obstacle in things like ambition, desire, determination and accomplishment.

The first thing to remember is to stay inside the circle of “YOU.” Control the things you can directly control. Don’t worry about your mom, dad, spouse, cousin, etc. Worry about you first. Figure out what you want and draw out a plan to make it a reality.

EP118: Sound The Siren, Your Time Is Now

May 11, 2018 01:03:39

Description:

On this edition of the Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright was back in the United States to talk to you about how to sound the siren so that people know you are coming and you mean business.

What you do sets the example for others to follow. It also determines the level of respect you earn from your peers and those you encounter. You typically do what you think about most. If you spend your days focused on being successful then it is likely that you will be successful.

Do you want to be right or rich? Those who take advantage of opportunities are the people who set the credibility bar. Love is given, but respect is earned. The people you spend the most time around will help determine how fast you move and how far you go. They help set your pace and you need to be aware of that.

EP114: Invest Vs. Spending

Apr 13, 2018 57:47

Description:

On this episode of the Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright talks about resource allocation and why it is so important.

The quality of your life is determined by the quality of your questions. How do I decide what is important? How do I spend my time? What do I need to be doing with my time? How do I distribute my resources?

What is a win for you? Can you define it? What do you want?

If you don’t have a clue then you are spending. If you have a plan then you are investing. Defining what a win looks like impacts your daily activities. It directs what you do.

What do you do with your time? We all get 24 hours a day. Do you spend it with family? Do you watch TV, drink beer or wine, etc.?

Watch your words. Instead of spending time or using time, call it investing time. The best leaders invest in people. Some people want to use people to make money. Let’s make sure we are investing in people to get the desired results we want.

As leaders we have to answer the question: How do we distribute our resources among competing situations?

Agents, leads, travel, Show The Plan, width depth, association, etc. All these things take energy and time.

We want to invest available resources in the present to accomplish your goals and objectives in the future.

Margaret Roush said, “Resource allocation involves balancing competing needs and priorities and determining the most effective course of action in order to maximize the effective use of limited resources and gain the best return on investment.

We have tools to build with investing your resources the right way

Resource allocation vs. asset allocation.

Time, money, energy, staff, leads are all ways to invest.

Are you taking people on ride alongs appointments? Allocate to direct or distribute.

You have choices. They can be easily defined. You want one? You want to win? You want the most? What is your best? What does it look like?

How does it compare to worst vs. how does it compare to best?

Most tasks vs. invest to get the desired results.

Spend = Trade

Vs.

Invest = Devote and expect greater

Budgeting vs. Investing

What is available to you?

Dream big. Make it happen.

EP105: Motivating The Unmotivated

Feb 10, 2018 56:47

Description:

Andy Albright hosted this week’s Alliance Activity podcast live from his office in Burlington, N.C. at The Alliance’s headquarters to talk about how you can motivate the unmotivated.

Everyone is motivated! People are motivated to do what they are doing. What are you motivated to do? Be non-judgmental – the ability to not judge Remember I’m not frustrated at them because they are not part of my success. People are judgmental when they only have a few people. They are depending on their few peoples success to reach their goals. Art of Motivation – the art of leading someone to do what you want them to do because they want to do it. You can’t lead someone who doesn’t want to be lead. You already do this with people you care about

How to Motivate People

Avoid negative Fears and Threats won’t work long term. Most people do not know they are being negative, be a good coach and tell them Arrogance + Broke is a bad combination. Stay humble and keep learning Focus on staying in the circle of you – what you can control Get people to see what they can do in their circumstances – this is motivating When you say “If we or If this… I could succeed “ it demotivates people. Motivate yourself What motivates me?
AA is motivated by “I want the people I respect to respect me, I want my wife and kids to respect me” If you are a short basketball player don’t talk about being short, talk about who did it, and if they did it being short then I can do it being short. When people begin to tell you their circumstances, ask them “Is there something a short basketball player can do that you have not done? Work on shots, footwork, etc” Talk about the basics not the circumstances If you call yourself a motivator but no one does anything after talking to you then you are not a motivator. White sheet Write down 10 things that you want in life Write them down as if they have already happened On the list of 10, what is the one thing that would change your life Start working on that Better questions to ask. Better your life will be Start listing deadlines and steps to get it Organize and do something every day to work on it. If it is the most influential, then go like a maniac Planning brings the future into the present

On this episode of the Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright chats with Justin Balik to discuss his strategy to sell $450,000 in 2018, and how he is planning to do it.

Grab a pad and pen, take notes and listen to this eye-opening interview about a young man who lives in Miami, Fla. and didn't find a purpose until he joined The Alliance.

Balik, who grew up as a "rich kid" in California, was on track to go to medical school to become a doctor until he realized that was not the career path he needed to be on.

After eight years of higher education -- private high school and a degree from the University of Miami -- Balik got an insurance license and the rest is history.

EP93: The Recipe To Fix Confusion

Nov 11, 2017 59:27

Description:

On this edition of the Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright delivered an energetic call from this year’s last Instant Thunder in Burlington, N.C.

Why are people confused? Why don’t people start something? Andy wants to give you the recipe to fix what ails you.

How do you relate?

Do you want to make a difference? Are you doing something that makes a difference? Are you doing it with people who make a difference? Are you doing it at a time that makes a difference?

It’s not about being perfect. It is about wanting a better life for yourself.

Do you believe big? There are four things to think about in terms of belief.

Do you believe in yourself?

Do you believe in your mission?

Do you believe in your people?

Do you believe in your God?

Most people are passive. Why do people talk about significant regrets and not about what they tried and failed at? Why would you spend time talking about something you didn’t even attempt to do?

Most people think this way: If I could just be there … I’d would do this. Why? Starting would be better and more helpful.

The truth is that you can only start where you are! That’s your first move.

Real freedom comes from knowing that you don’t have to save the entire world. Your goal should be to be impactful and to make a difference in the place where you call home.

Start with one thing.

Henry David Thoreau wrote, “One was not born into this world to do everything, but to do something.”

Use the right words

King Solomon said, “Words kill, words give life, they’re either poison or fruit! You choose.”

Speak positive and be nice to people.

Make small changes

Make small adjustments. Get people to move three percent for the better.

John Wesley wrote, “Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. All the time you can. To all the people you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can.

Start small, but believe big.

EP90: How To Keep Going, Not Quit, Not Get Weary and Not Succumb To Lies

Oct 21, 2017 59:38

Description:

On this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright shares how you can keep going, not quit, not get weary in well doing and not succumb to the lies that many people want you to believe in the world we live in.

Can you get a whitesheet of paper and write down everything you want to happen soon, next year and in five years?

Do it and prepare for your future. Prepare for greatness. Every step you take that gets you closer to your ultimate goal gives you more energy.

Have you heard the story of Abe Lincoln and the importance of being persistent. He tried many trades and to seek many different elected positions, but failed over and over again. Eventually, he was elected president and is one of the most famous and well-known Americans in U.S. history.

When you are faced with a decision, how do you determine your next move? Focus on the stats. It matters in life. Stats and facts. Then, take action.

40 percent of the things you worry about will never happen. 30 percent of people worry about things in the past. 12 percent focus on needless concerns about health, etc. 8 percent of the things we worry about are legitimate things. Half of the legit things we worry about we can affect. 2 percent we can eliminate. 2 percent of the things that people worry about is really, really legitimate.

Don’t waste moments in life when you can get something done. Life is meant to be lived. Stop wasting time.

Let go of what you think you want. What do you think you want? Don’t want things that you can never get. You can’t continue wanting stuff that you can’t change. You don’t have time to go after things that you can’t possible affect, change, impact.

Can you get hung up on tomorrow and think about what it will be like? Picture the future. Think big, then think bigger. Keep growing. Cover the bad stuff with more good stuff. It lessens the blow of the bad stuff when you keep doing good.

Keeps pushing forward, it is easier than sitting down. Find new challenges. Find bigger challenges.

Cut out the fear, worry and doubt.

Most people have heard the lies, but they don’t hear the truth. They hear negative people tell them what they can’t have. Stop hearing that YOU can’t have what you want. It will drain you. Don’t buy into that junk. You get to decide what is good enough for you. If you want to win, then you can make it happen. You success and future has nothing to do with the lies people are trying to spread. It has everything to do with what you do.

If you can do the little things and stop worrying about the negative, you can have anything you want.

EP86: The Importance Of Planning - Part 1

Sep 23, 2017 01:04:06

Description:

On this episode of the Activity Call podcast, Andy Albright talks to you about the importance of planning and how it determines how successful you will be.

The process of planning is huge. Planning rules the day. It determines how much you can do. The problem is the “inner me” more than the enemy. The skill to plan is critical to success. It will enable you to do more than most. Your plan will allow you do more. Planning is your guide. It is what will drive you to be successful in all that you attempt.

Your ability to set goals and makes plans is the master skill of success. Everything is a series of steps. Multitasking is about having a sequence to do work. The Alliance has the Activity book that can tell you exactly why you are getting the results you are getting. It’s like a recipe for success.

Everybody has a story. We all have “stuff” we are dealing with. Yes, you matter, but how are you working through things that just don’t matter? How do you get results? You approach steps in a particular way. You skill to plan and complete jobs will enable you to accomplish more than most people and is critical to your success.

Planning and scheduling will enable you to hit your goals, realize your purpose and complete projects. Knowing specific steps will help you move from the beginning, to the middle and to the end with clear deadlines and mini-deadlines. There is great skill in that. You can learn and master it with enough practice.

General Dwight D. Eisenhower, who led a successful invasion of Normandy in World War II, was asked about having a detailed planning process. He said, “the plans were useless, but the planning was indispensable.”

Action without planning is the cause of every failure. It is hard to attack work with no plan. There is the old military axiom that states: no plan ever survives first contact with the enemy. Discuss the enemy. The enemy versus “inner me” theory. The “inner me” is the problem more than the enemy. Situations change rapidly. The plan is obsolete, but the process is important.

All successful people work off of a written plan. They have a schedule for each week, month, year and even their life. All great human achievement of mankind from the great pyramids to the nicest sports car were preceded and accomplished with detailed plans. “Failing to plan is planning to fail.”

We are all in a race against time. You have the same time as anybody else. You can make as much money as you want to, but many of you take longer than the most successful people to do it. The “Profit Model” is to measure expense versus profit. How fast and how much do you want to profit versus what you are willing to give up in order for that profit? God gives you dreams, desire and hunger. God blesses plans. The Alliance has the light of D.A.E. (Duplication, Association, Edification). The light of D.A.E. is a plan. It is order and not chaos. Plans are like plays in football. Execute. Order. Process. Get results!

We have the 8 Steps and the 8 Core Values.

Are you working? Where are you working? Why are you working with certain people? The goal is to be intentional with the plan. Doing this brings simplicity and clarity. Be strategic when you move. Less thinking versus greater thinking. The enemy of success is past success.

Focus on Who NOT Do. Who YOU are determines what you DO. Integrity is big. Are you finding people like you? People like winners. There is a cost in anything that you do. How much of your life do you give up to get what you want? We are all dying right now. We don’t have limitless time. The sooner we can realize that, the better off we are.

EP84: How To Identify Your Special One Talent

Sep 9, 2017 01:03:03

Description:

On this episode of the Alliance Activity Call podcast, Andy Albright's message centered around how you can identify your special talents and how you can use 8 things to be discover the talent that will help you get the most out of life.

Everybody has talent, but ability takes work. Michael Jordan was talented, but you can bet he worked harder than almost any other player in basketball.

The poet Longfellow wrote, “The great tragedy of the average man is that he goes to his grave with his music still in him.”

Why struggle for 20 years in a job or situation you don’t love and know it doesn’t work? When you could work for two years in something you love and it matters, you can do far more than working in an area you don’t like for 20 years.

Napoleon Hill wrote that “the key to success is for you to find out what you really love to do, and then find a way to make a great living doing it.”

Most, if not all, millionaires will tell you that they have never worked a day in their life because they found out what they loved to do and they did it more and more.

You will be happiest and best at something you love to do. If you could afford to do it with no pay, would you do it? If it brings out the best in you, you get satisfaction from it and you enjoy it, why wouldn’t you do that all the time? Find your natural, obvious talent and ability and do that. We are here for two reasons: to worship God and to help people. If God is for us then who can be against us? I can do it and you can do it! You can’t win the game if you are not playing the game. Don’t sit in the stands when you should be playing on the field. What talent is responsible for most of your success and happiness? What do you enjoy, what brought you the greatest rewards and accolades and what do people know you for? What is your great talent? What was easy for you to learn and do? It was something so easy you didn’t even really work hard to learn it, you just started doing it. What was it? What is it? What is your talent now? This thing holds your attention. It fascinates you. You think about it, read about it, talk about it, learn about it, and it holds you attention all the time. You love to learn about this subject or activity. All your life it has been something you were passionate about. You have a desire to know more about it and excel at it. What is something that when you do it, time seems to stand still. Hours are like minutes. What is a talent you respect and admire in other people? Who do you know that is good or great at this talent? You admire them because they are so good at it. You want to be as good as them at this talent. People want to be respected by the people they respect. People help people.

These steps are designed to lead you into what you are uniquely put on this Earth for and to do until your time is done.

Here’s the big quest: Do I get to do it versus Do I have to do it? The trap of a poor performer is in not doing what you know you can do. Excellence doesn’t happen immediately. Anything worth doing well is worth doing poorly at first.

EP82: How To Filter Recruits To Save Time And Be More Productive

Aug 26, 2017 01:08:15

Description:

On this episode of the Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright discusses how to filter recruits to save time and be more productive.

How do you get a ROI - Return On your Investment?

Your enthusiasm level just doesn't go from 5 to 10 without making an effort or changing your behavior.

Filtering is a matter of your focus and your priorities.

Hiring the right people is how you grow your business. You have to find Kings, Queens, Jacks and 10s in your deck of cards to win consistently. It's OK to get a 7, 8 or 9 that can improve, but it's hard to win when your hand is filled with 2, 3 and 4-level people.

When people start talking about things that aren't important, start filtering and move away to a person that is talking about great stuff. Avoid the wrong kinds of people.

Stay focused and stick to working on items that help you move toward your goals. Do not waste time worrying about what others think. Remember what is important in your life and ask yourself consistently this: What should I be doing?

Minimize the negative and focus on the positive. 

People say stuff and people worry about what other people say. When you worry about this, it takes away from your focus.

You have to fight to maintain FOCUS in everything. Focus on what is urgent and what is important. It is a thinking process.

Don't mix up valuable with invaluable stuff. Most people get upset about people, things, drama and don't understand why important tasks are not done.

"What do I do about the voices in my head?" What you say to yourself is important.

You are responsible for the thoughts in your head. Be aware of that and work to keep things positive. The decisions you make have a lot to do with what you say to yourself. Don't let negative forces hurt you. Be mindful of how you react to all situations in your life.

EP80: Explaining The 'Ready, Fire, Aim' Concept

Aug 12, 2017 01:01:12

Description:

On this episode of the Activity Call podcast, your host Andy Albright talks about a concept that he uses in his life and business to help him move projects, tasks and ideas along faster.

This worksheet is called the “Ready, Fire, Aim Concept.”

This concept involves planning in terms of emotion, time and money. Before you go “all in” on a project, you need to start it and then gauge whether or not you are on the right track. Also, maybe you can make adjustments before you think you are done with a task or project.

When you are working toward a goal, figure out what you want and take action. Make adjustments along the way, but keep working toward what you want.

Just do it!

The difference between high achievers and low achievers can be found in the level of action and commitment. The most successful people take action. Moment by moment your life is going away. You can have the best intentions in the world, but what you do is how you need to keep score. Are you getting results? The way to get what you want is to get things done, rather than intending to do something. Are you “action oriented?”

Are you walking, talking and behaving like successful people do? Even if you aren’t where you want to be, are you acting like you are what you want to be? Some people say, “fake it until you make it.” Andy says, “faith it until you make it.” Have faith, take action and don’t be scared to fail.

The law of reversibility in psychology and metaphysics talks about “you are more likely to act yourself into feeling a particular way then you one to feel yourself into acting.”

Act “as if” you are the person you desire to be. Show people your desire and take action with the qualities and talents you possess. Your actions will generate the feelings that go with them. Get advice and take action.

Walk, talk, dress and behave like the people you want to be like. You will soon feel like a winner. You will treat other people the way top-performing people do. You will get results. When you face a difficulty see if as a chance for instruction and not an obstruction. When trouble arises, seek training to get through it. Stay persistent. Never give up! With each obstacle or setback, there is a seed of equal or greater advantage or benefit. You job is to focus on that. Keep doing. There is a lesson in the struggle that may be something you needed to experience or learn from to get better. 

Don’t isolate yourself when you are trying to make things happen. Seek instruction and feedback. Get correction and get better. Ready, Fire, Aim!!!

You can find a copy of the Ready, Fire, Aim worksheet by visiting www.NAAUniversity.com and download it from the advanced resources section, or by using this link:

EP76: 3 BIG Secrets To Attract People

Jul 8, 2017 01:01:49

Description:

On this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright shares 3 big secrets to help you attract the right people in your life.

Andy will also tell you how to use these secrets to help you succeed.

Humans need to feed three basic needs. These are acceptance, approval and appreciation.

1. Acceptance - Accept people as they are and let them be them. They don't have to be perfect for you to like them. Don't try to be the moral police. You don't need to offer them a straight jacket to wear. Never put conditions on your acceptance of people.

Don't say I accept you if YOU change, do this, be this or act like this. People don't like that and will move away from you.

2. Approval - Look for something to "approve of" in all people. Find a shiny spot even if it is a small thing. It seems insignificant, but you need to let them know it. The more you approve, the more that will appear to you. As you get closer, look and see how he/she will adjust and do more to earn approval.

3. Appreciation - Appreciate means to raise value. Do not depreciate people or lower the level of appreciation. Let people know you value them. Treat them like they are valuable. Don't keep people waiting. Thank people. Give them special treatment. Give them individual treatment.

We all have a hunger or appetite to be accepted as we are. Be yourself and be OK. Take your shoes off and relax! Be a person that someone else can be OK with and not judge others.

Now, a lot of people do the opposite. They find faults in people. They are sarcastic. They put down people. They are not real friends. They often suggest how you can be fixed! They are rigid and rough. They have "standards" of how things ought to be. Let the peculiar be peculiar. If somebody is not like you then be OK with that. Let people relax. Everybody calm down.

People who accept people as they are are the ones most likely to change them and influence them.

Ask yourself this: Who changed you? Was it the person who believed in you, encouraged you, loved you and accepted you?

No one person has the power to reform another person, but liking another person as they are is a great way to start.

Have you ever had a doctor that listened with no surprise, horror or moral judgment? That's like a good friend. They accept it for what it is and they help you get better. Like a spouse, it is for better or worse.

No one is accepted by all, but all need somebody to accept them. Gangs operate this way. They do crazy or they do good.

Find approval and like something about people. You can find good or bad, but you have to look for both. You can find flaws or find things to approve. Shine your spotlight on approval things. We all bask in the spotlight of approval. Let it shine on people. Take notice and find something unique about a person. They will then glow.

Appreciation is magic! Raise value and help others grow. We want to be around those who are growing. Let them know. Clap for them. Smile at them. Get up and show appreciation.

Don't keep waiting to do this if at all possible.

Acknowledge immediately. Don't delay.

Thanks people.

Treat them special.

Don’t worry about results. Worry about the activity and the work you are doing. If you don't completely reach your goal, who cares? Are you closer to it now than when you started reaching for it? That is the key. Keep trying to reach it when you come up short.

EP72: 6 Steps To Establish Goals

Jun 10, 2017 58:10

Description:

On this edition of The Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright explains the six steps to establish goals. Listen as Andy tells you why to set goals and how to make your dreams come true.

10:06 – What one skillset would change everything dramatically if you focused on it and got great at it? What if you developed it and did it in an excellent fashion? Would you have the greatest positive impact on your business?

What if you set goals?

Humility, gratitude and giving credit to a higher power is one way to create a brighter future for yourself. If you are willing to set big goals, there is a team at The Alliance to help you. Do you believe deep in your soul that you were meant for more?

A person recently told Andy, “I want what all men want, but I want more.”

Andy’s biggest goal is to help people achieve their goals faster than they thought was possible. Andy believes it is his destiny and calling to help others. He wants to hear the words, “Well done, good and faithful servant.”

Zig Ziglar said, “Success is goals, and all else is commentary.”

Jim Rohn said, “Put it in a box this big and I’ll make up my own drama.”

Your time is precious. Why take forever to accomplish your goals? You can do it now.

The average intelligence with goals will smoke a genius who is not sure what he can do.

No. 1: Make goals! Work on them! Do it every single day!

A Harvard study conducted from 1979-89 found that among MBA students, only 3 percent had goals. A decade later, those 3 percent had earned 10-times more than their fellow MBA classmates.

How do you define happiness? Earl Nightingale said it was the progressive realization of a worthwhile ideal or goal. When you define steps to take and then make progress, you will be happy.

Greek philosopher Aristotle said man is a teleological being. Teleo meaning goals.  

Write it down, make a plan and set about getting it done.

6 Steps to Set Goals

Write it down and be clear Make it measurable and objective Put a deadline on it and set time constraints Establish where you are when you start Determine what is in it for you. Why do you want it? Visualize or picture it now.

The first job of a leader is to determine the truth. Where am I, where are my friends and where is the enemy?

When you have goals, you can move from poverty to prosperity. You can move from frustration to fulfilment. You will rid yourself of underachievement and find success and satisfaction.

Simply put: you become what you think about most of the time.

Broke people think about what they don’t want. Successful people think about what they want and how they can get it.

Why not be successful? Let it occur to you, believe it can happen and want it to happen. Do you fear success or failure?

Step 1: You must write it down and be clear. It has to be tangible. Write it down and make it plain so you can see it. If it isn’t written down then it is not a goal. Write it and re-write it.

How will I measure success in the achievement of this goal? How can I measure my progress?

Writing is psycho neuro motor activity. It means when you write it down, you activate your: emotions, intelligence and your body. It activates your visual, auditory and kinesthetic senses. It programs you goal into subconscious.  

Step 2: Measurable and Objective goals. You have to be capable of being analyzed. You don’t just say I want a lot of money or I want to do better. It has to be specific. Think about your activity, results and goals. Be specific.

Step 3: Time boundaries, schedules and deadlines

Keep it simple. Look at one week. Look at one month. Look at one year. Give it your best guess in those areas. Aim big and see if you hit it or even go beyond the goal. Maybe you just get close. At least you shot at it.

Break it down and create mini-deadlines. Do it for a day, week, month, etc.

Step 4: Establish where you are. Determine you starting point. Where are you now?

Like the Marines say, “Where am I, where is my buddy and where is the enemy?

Analyze your starting point. Know you numbers when it comes to dials, contacts, appointments, sits and applications. It all matters.

Step 5: Determine what’s in it for you. What are the reasons you want it? What is your why? Decide why. List reasons it will personally benefit you. The more reasons you have the more likely you will take action.

Your reasons are the fuel for the furnace of growth. What motivates you more: two reasons to do it or 40 reasons to do it? What do you really want? How badly do you want it? If the desire is there, you will start.

Step 6: Visualize and picture it

Say it, See it and Seize it!

What do you think about? What do you see in your mind? What does it look like? What do I want and how do I get it? Peter Drucker said when you find something getting done, you find a monomaniac with a mission.

If you feel it and emotionalize it, you go deeper and deeper in terms of making it happen. In your brain is the reticular cortex. Your recticular activity system makes you intensely aware and alert. People are resources and they have talent to help open opportunities to help you get it.

 

Time Stamps:

35:00: Where are you? What is your objective?

38:00: The starting point is desire

53:00: You have to see it before you can seize it!

On this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast, Lead Performance Team manager Clay Mertes fills in as guest host for Andy Albright to talk about how you can get all the leads you need and the 5 things winners are doing RIGHT NOW!

The Lead Performance Team is a group who are committed to helping agents get in position to reach clients and help protect them with life insurance. This four-person staff was put in place to help agents maximize their success with The Alliance.

The system that Andy Albright has worked to develop over the last 20 years has a proven track record for success. The tools and resources that exist today were not there 15 years ago, but Albright has invested heavily to put in the infrastructure needed to blog this thing up bigly.

Agents with The Alliance that are "killing it" do 5 things well.

They don't care what the source of the lead is.

They don't care what kind of leads they get.

They don't care where they have to go to run business.

They find the best product to fit the client.

They maximize their book of business and leads by asking for referrals and conducting annual reviews.

EP70: Simple Steps For Recruiting And Building

May 27, 2017 01:02:04

Description:

On this episode of the Activity podcast, Andy Albright speaks to you live from his office at The Alliance headquarters in Burlington, N.C.

Have you ever heard the phrase, “Anybody can make soap, but it takes a clever person to sell it.”

Today’s episode is all about recruiting and building … in simple fashion. There are tons of different soaps in the market, but somebody has to sell it. The people that can sell the soap are going to make more money than the people that are good with just making it. The people in The Alliance that can sell insurance make more than those who are satisfied with making a product. The talent to sell gets earns a person a higher income than a person who works in a factory assembling a product.

Typically, sales people don’t shoot for a finite finish line. Sales people try to do as much as possible. They keep pushing to sell more than just their goal.

EP69: The 3 SureFire Ways To Get New Agents Profitable

May 20, 2017 01:03:07

Description:

On this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright explains the three surefire ways to get new agents profitable. Before you settle in and listen to this call in its entirety, please reference page 230 of Andy’s “Millionaire Maker Manual” and review the section that covers GS3. That is about Goal Set, Get Started and Go Serve.

Think about the following three things:

You be!

Excellence and expectation

Simplicity (Gross vs. Expense)

GS3 is a lot like people taking showers. You need to do it daily or it will not go well in the long run. You have to repeat it. Over and over.

Andy talks about slowing down to speed up when it comes to working with sharp, talented agents. What do you expect of people? First, you have to know they want to and find out do they want to. Next, find out the how to and the how to get from people.

A leaders job is to define reality. Where am I, where is my buddy and where is the enemy? That’s how the military looks at it when it goes on a mission. Where are you? What is your next step? Will you rise above or stay under when the times comes to step up?

You need a plan to play. Can you schedule and prepare in a manner that will lead you to success? Are you doing what you want and need to do or are you checking with friends and family and letting them influence everything you do?

The goal is to help get people started. Are you practicing what you preach? Do you exercise personal use? If you don’t, then why would anybody else listen to you? A lot of people will tell you they are giving you 100 percent, but they are likely at around 85 percent. There’s a huge gap there that can be closed.

When you are doing and leading by example, people will take notice.

When you set the bar for excellence and expect the same of others, the team can perform at a higher level.

When you keep things simple and keep track of where you are in terms of finances, you and your team can be more successful.

EP68: The 3 Different Rooms People Can Stay In

May 13, 2017 01:02:03

Description:

Andy hosted a live edition of The Alliance Activity Podcast from his office in Burlington, N.C. to talk about the three rooms people can stay in. The way people pick a room is they decide what they want.

Some people are committed to fast growth and get big.

Some people are not committed yet. You might call this the funny room.

Then, you have people who go easy until you know. These people make good decisions.

What are you doing with the time you have? Are you sitting and waiting, or are you pushing and doing?

Are you committed? Are you pressing to do as much as possible until your time is done and you reach the end of your life?

People are dealing with things you can’t imagine, even if they look like they have it all together. When things are not going perfectly, committed people still get things done. They don’t let problems stop them from doing what they need to do.

Whatever you want in life, it boils down to deciding to make the commitment to do whatever it takes to reach that goal. We all have problems, but some of us choose to make things happen.

It is the decision to attend meetings, be coachable, etc. that determines where you are going. When you are speaking negative or positive it does comes back to you at some point and time.

What you say is what you get. Positivity in the room changes and impacts every single person in the room. When you are negative, it hurts the atmosphere.

Be accountable and make yourself speak positive. Ask others to hold you to it.

A man must work hard to get better. You have to show gratitude and pay it forward. If you want bigger success then you must deal with bigger problems. Everything is relative. Do you want to step up to bigger success and deal with bigger problems? You have to be able to handle both. You can’t have the sweet without the sour.

The odds of you becoming a human being are insane. You actually won the lottery. Now, are you going to take full advantage of it? Humans can talk, they can build, they can do anything pretty much. Will you work for what you want?

You already beat the odds by being a human and being in the United States. Now, let’s see what you got? Are you going to step up? Your success starts with you. Do you believe in you?

The Alliance has a spot for you on the team. However, you can’t win until you make the decision.

EP66: How A New Agent Can Start Fast And How YOU Can Help Them

Apr 29, 2017 52:51

Description:

On this episode of The Alliance Activity Call, Andy Albright talks about how a new agent can start fast and how YOU can help them get moving.

One secret in life is to get up in the morning and work on something that matters until the sun goes down and you get so tired you can’t keep your eyes open. The best at what they do are able to do this day after day for years!

How do you get new people started fast? Read Andy’s Millionaire Maker Manual on page 207 where it talks about getting people going.

1 – You establish clear communication lines.

How would you act if you knew you would win? What would you do? Do you play by the playbook? If you have the recipe then use it. If you don’t follow directions, I don’t know what the end result will be. What energy and investment would you throw at it?

Details make stories stick. Once you get a Key Leader, you want to help him get to Executive Vice President. Tell success stories, edify the people who are doing the right things and following the playbook. You want to create patterns that people can follow.

On Page 38 of MMM, you can read about The Factory. In the very beginning you want to get 12 wide, licensed and signed up for the next event. The Alliance’s next big event is Family Reunion in July. You can get tickets by signing up at www.AllianceFamilyReunion.com.

4 questions to ask …

What is it? When is it? How do we do it? What do we got to do?

Learn to say people’s names a lot. If you want to get someone great, you have to be great first. People follow the leader.

3 reasons to hire people.

Help people that are praying for something.

Help people that need this.

Help people before somebody else helps them.

Are you making a list, making phone calls, interviewing people and following up?

How would you like to be an answer to someone’s prayer?

You can’t be the answer without faith. Get people telling their stories before we tell them what we are going to do. Catch what people are doing correctly and make sure to point it out to them and others.

Don’t be afraid to get a list. It is more complicated to get a list than it is to call a list. If you can get them to call and help them call, that is big.

Interview people to find out how they have won or been successful in the past because you looking to show their past success. Figure out what their success has been, point it out to them and remind them that it can and will happen for them again.

EP65: How The Best Attract Crowds

Apr 22, 2017 01:05:29

Description:

On this episode of The Alliance Activity Podcast, Andy Albright tells you why the best people are able to attract crowds, why they keep going and what keeps them coming back for more.

What do you love? What is your tip? Are you worried all the time?

Are you working on being positive about things in your life?

Are you booking appointments with people and going to the home even when you don't want to or you think it isn't going to go well?

Are you shying away from recruiting because you haven't had any success yet?

Andy says a big mistake people make is thinking it is all about you and what you have done. Remember the bigger picture is about the team you are on and what you can do together.

Get in the game and start playing to win. If you sit and watch, then you can't win. That means you sell, recruit and build.

Be nice to people ... it makes a difference. People don't care how much you know until they know that you care about them and what is going on in their life.

A leader's ability to define reality is important. Change will take time and it won't always be easy. Work to have great character, make sacrifices and spend time with people when you don't want to do it.

Approval

Look for a reason to approve of a person. It can be little things. Encourage and don't patronize. Raise the value of people, rather than depreciating them. Let people know you are behind them. Most people want to be heard instead of talked at. Be interested and interesting. You have to work to get to know a person so do it. That's how you build a relationship. Offer hugs and handshakes to people. Mind your manners.

How to attract a crowd?

Reach out to people you encounter and offer to help them. They will remember that. Work to build acceptance, build approval and build appreciation. Don't judge others. Make a difference in people's lives and see how much they will be willing to help and do for you in return.

EP61: Relationships, Retention and Rising Up

Mar 25, 2017 01:09:08

Description:

On this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright dishes on relationships, retention and rising up!

Surprising sales teaching from relationships. Surprising placement percentage from relationships. Surprising truth in relationships.

Relationships take effort, time and work. Investing in people is the greatest thing you can do. It won’t always end well and you will be hurt at times, but you have to keep loving on people. Over time, it will pay off for you in ways you can’t imagine.

Sacrifice to people shows others that you care about them and they appreciate it. Most parents will do anything to protect their children. They don’t ever want to see them hurting. That is the kind of sacrifice that happens when the relationship and connection between people is strong. Show people that you care about them every chance you get.

When you give to others and help people when they need you, they will like you and you will have a greater circle of influence.

Talent, motivation and time are how you get crazy successful. Now, when you mix those things along with relationship building, then you can do big things. Relationships matter. When you nurture relationships, you retain people for longer amounts of time. We are all in the people business even if we do not realize it.

EP57: The How and Where of The Alliance

Feb 25, 2017 01:01:50

Description:

On this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast, guest host Stephen Davies delivered a jam-packed broadcast from his office in Asheville, N.C.

Have you ever noticed that most people never know what they need to hear in order to kick them into motion? Why is this so common when it doesn't have to be that way?

Successful people do everything it takes to be in the room when what they need to hear is being said. Often times, when a person hears what they need to hear they start performing at a higher level.

But, what if they hadn't heard it? Why does it take some seemingly magical enlightenment for action to take place?

How do you grow to a higher level than where you are right now, today, in this moment? How do you reach for Good Samaritan Bonus and SEAL Team 20 each month? How do you push for more?

With The Alliance, you can decide what you are going to do and then put together a plan to make it happen. How? The Alliance has a system in place that will help you set and reach any goal that you have. There are no limitations on what you can do if you set a goal and work for it. More is always possible because The Alliance does not have a shortness of opportunity. You get to decide. The opportunity is there is you want it.

Why are you stuck where you are at? Why are you not moving up? The Alliance isn’t concerned about a finish line. We are trying to go as far as we can go. The “Do” at The Alliance is simple: Sell, Recruit and Build.

Make dials, set appointments and go meet clients. Keep doing it and the results will come. It might not happen overnight, but if you keep working consistently then you will find success.

What holds people back?

People have to decide that they want to grow. Once the decision is made, it must be backed up by action. Decision comes from a Latin word that means cutting off. When you make a decision, you cut off everything that is preventing you from doing something. Poor people are enamored by having a plan B or a backup plan. People like that are playing small. They are not playing to win. They are not making a decision to change their life. People who make decisions and are committed are better off because they back up the decision with action.

Normal people don’t get a lot done because they are wrapped up in normal stuff. They waste time on things that don’t help them. When you hear people talking about what they have cut off then you know they have made a decision.

Stephen shared seven words that will help you with making decisions. Take out a notepad and take notes. This is big stuff.

Instead: looking back and looking forward. If you didn’t do what you wanted to do last year, what were you doing that stopped you? What did you do instead of what you could have done that limited your success? Did you play too much golf? Did you go out too much? Too much TV? What were you doing? You can find the time if you are willing to give up other things.

Fear: Not all fear is bad. Negative fear is fear of failure and success. Procrastination is the enemy. This keeps us from doing the things we need to do. Distractions occupy us because we have a fear of failure. Advice is something we seek because we often lack the courage to take action. Worry is nothing more than a prayer for what you fear. Don’t operate in a self-sabotaging manner. Don’t ruin your momentum by making a bad decision. Self-worth issues will limit your success. Stay away from negative people. Look for positive. Don’t borrow trouble. It will consume you.

Energy: you only have so much energy. You can do things to optimize your energy, but it is limited. Be wise about how you use it. Put your efforts into the right areas of your life. Avoid energy vampires that will drain you and your efforts that could be used in a positive way in other places. Avoid OPD (Other People’s Drama). You can’t solve everybody else’s problems and emergencies. Spend time getting caught up on your dreams and not the latest episode of a TV show.

Intention: Are you intentional in what you are doing? What does your plan look like? Are you planning your days out with great intention? When you act intentionally, you make better decisions. What do you want? What does it look like? Figure that out and find a way to go there. Are you putting habits in place to get you there? Your intentions can simplify your decision-making process. Words are not neutral and your intentions shouldn’t be either.

Purpose: Have a purpose, work with a sense of purpose and use the energy of that purpose to guide what you do. When you have a purpose, you are less likely to be self-destructive. When you act with purpose you create the results and impact that keep your belief bucket full. When you lack purpose, you lack belief over time. You have to keep filling up that bucket. A man with purpose doesn’t hesitate to make decisions.

Change: People have to change to reach their dreams and goals. You can’t get overwhelmed by stuff. When you continue to change in positive ways, you are more likely to keep growing. Don’t give up, but do keep getting up. You will fail and hit roadblocks, but you can’t quit or you will not win.   

Delay: When you make decisions and you have to act with delay in some areas, you have to remember it is OK to delay gratification. If you are feeling bad, don’t make a decision. Get up and regroup before you make a decision. Don’t give into your emotions and don’t let your emotions get you in trouble. Keep them in check. Delay the decision until your mind is right. Don’t get too high or low. It can always be better and it can always be worse. Don’t give up on positive changes because it will take time for the results to kick in. Don’t quit. You might be closer than ever thought to winning. If you quit, you can’t win.

Most of us have more than one thing going in life, and we have to make choices and decisions about what move we need to make next. Do you have to stop and think about what you are going to do next? Having a plan and strategy is crucial in knowing what you should do next.

Andy’s goal is to help people achieve their goals by helping them get what they want faster and better than they thought possible.

Your thinking shapes your world. Nothing just happens. Nothing happens until a person thinks about an idea and takes action or a person tells them to do something. Rich people think about what they want and how they are going to get it.

When people move and get other people to move then big things happen. Life is better when you "Do The Do."

EP54: What's Next?

Feb 4, 2017 01:13:14

Description:

On this episode of The Alliance's Activity call, your host Andy Albright dishes about why you need to know "What's Next!"

Welcome to Episode 54 of the AActivity call, hosted live from Albright's office in Burlington, N.C. Grab a pen and notepad, sit back and get ready to learn about why it is important to know what is coming next in business and life.

On today's episode, Andy talks shop with Melanie Ray, Junior Corria and a very special guest visiting The Alliance from South Africa.

Enjoy!!!

Melanie Ray, of Dumfries, Va., joined the call to share her personal story with The Alliance during the last eight years. Melanie talked about the importance of giving back to the team by serving others because of how many people have helped Melanie and her husband, Chadwick since they joined The Alliance. Melanie knows that growth comes through helping and serving others first.

If you don’t go for something at 100 percent, you will be frustrated and not produce fruit with your efforts. Doing something at 50 percent capacity will only make you frustrated.

The Alliance is looking for people who are ready to go all in and figure out what to do next. If you don’t have a plan and a schedule, then you probably are not set up to be successful. There’s an old saying, “Man makes plans and God laughs.” Make a plan, but be flexible for things to change. The better prepared you are, the more likely you can pivot successfully when obstacles appear in front of you.

Making the commitment to go all out for a goal is half the battle. Once you are committed, then you start adding next steps. What is next for you? Are you thinking in those terms? If you don’t know where you are and where you are going, then you will never get to what you want.

It’s great to grow your income, but you also have to grow as a person and in your relationships. You need to let it “occur” to you that you can improve and grow in all areas of your personal and professional life.

Junior Corria, a SEAL Team 20 member, shared his experience of moving to the United States from Cuba when he was a young boy. At 18, he joined The Alliance. Junior started slow, but his income has improved each year with The Alliance. He now makes more than $120,000 annually, and predicts he will hit $300,000 this year.

Life is about the choices you make and the voices you listen to as you decide what you are going to do next. Don’t let your greatest victory or defeat be what happened in the past. If you don’t keep enlarging your goals and dreams then you will not get better and improve. Don’t make the mistake of thinking you are done with what you can do in life.

The more you sit and sulk, the less you get accomplished. Working with a purpose can make all the difference in the world.

Bishop Trevor Manhanga and his wife were visiting with The Alliance today and stopped by the show to speak to the team about his late friend JL Williams, who was a great friend of Andy and The Alliance. JL passed away at the end of 2016, and Manhanga traveled from Zimbabwe, South Africa to pay his repsects to JL’s family. JL was a mentor to both Andy and Manhanga and they each shared some of their thoughts about their late friend.

Part of life is learning to understand and accept people. We all have weaknesses and you have to have a big heart to make a difference in the world. When you have a big heart, you can help people who need encouragement. Giving back and helping those in need is part of living a great life. When you have big hands and help others, it is amazing what you can accomplish. Think on a bigger scale and go to heights that most won’t even dare to think about doing.

Big mind, big heart, big horizons and big hands will help you be as successful as you want to be. The best is yet to come. The Alliance believes that you ain’t seen nothing yet!

The Alliance came to play big and win big this year. We want you to know what's next so that you are set up for success this year. Until next time, we hope you enjoyed the podcast!

EP53: What To Say, Ask and Do With New Agents

Jan 28, 2017 01:05:45

Description:

Andy Albright hosted the Alliance Activity podcast live from his office in Burlington, N.C.

Today’s topic focused on what you need to say to people when they you what they need to do. Andy says, “Whatever it takes!” Listen in and take notes as Andy talks about what to say, what to ask and what to do when you are working with new agents joining The Alliance.

The first thing members of The Alliance do is to follow the playbook. We are 100 percent positive about everything. We avoid being negative. We don’t use sarcasm. We are not ugly. We don’t use snide remarks. We focus on our Prosperity, Inspiration and Eternity. The prosperity is unlimited, the inspiration means we get to have fun and our eternity is real and lasts forever.

YOU can be the cause and the effect. You need to believe this because the speed of the leader determines the speed of the pack and the team. We talk to people when we encounter them on a daily basis. We help people find products that fit their needs. We keep it simple. We speak clearly and simply.

Knowing how to do something doesn’t mean the work gets done. People will start doing when they want to do something. They will do more when they are around people they like and respect. They are more likely to move faster when they are capable and they know you care about them. Now, some people are desperate and will move immediately, but it helps when you make people feel special.

The “How To” is not as important as the “Why To.” When people know why they are doing something, they care that much about how they do it. When people feel stuck, don’t have self-confidence and only worry about themselves, it is a recipe for disaster.

If you want to gain power then be positive about things. If you want to lose influence with people then start practicing being critical of everything.  

People paired with relationships equal performance. When you get away from people then you don’t perform as well. You need to get around people you like and work on growing the relationships you have with people. Make people feel special and loved. Don’t be cold, distant and mean.

If your “Why” is about other people then you don’t have time to sit still. There’s so much work to be done. People need people and we all need to help more people.

When other people are in an emotional tailspin, you have to remain calm. It probably doesn’t even impact what you are trying to do. You can help them through it, but don’t get emotional with them and make it worse. Don’t get too high and don’t get too low. Stay even and calm.

Do you know what makes a great team? They show up for practice. They work on the fundamentals and the basics. They rise above adversity. They don’t get so frustrated they lose focus on the task at hand. They keep executing, keep making plays and keep doing.

C.S. Lewis once said, “I need more to be reminded more than I need to be told.” Avoid the fire if you know it will burn you when emotions are involved. Stay cool.

Use Andy’s tips to get your new people up and running faster, cheaper, farther and more productive NOW.

EP50: Decisions and Choices

Dec 31, 2016 56:55

Description:

On this episode of The Alliance's Activity podcast, Andy Albright talks about decisions and choices.

Life is all about the decisions and choices we make each day. It all adds up and it all matters.

Einstein believed that “time is moving more slowly for a person that is moving.” If you are taking action, you can see things more clearly. It slows time down for you. If Einstein is right then you can hit your target or goal if you keep moving. When you sit still, you are essentially losing time. The more you move and accomplish, the more time you have for more stuff.

Your ability to get yourself organized to do the most valuable task each day will determine how successful you will be. It comes down to choices and decisions that you make. If your mind is focused on the right things, you can accomplish more than about 99 percent of the world.

Tasks getting done that need to be done is huge. If you set the bar high for yourself, then you will perform at a higher level and get more done. People perform to the level of expectations. If you expect greatness from a person, they are more likely to perform at a higher level. People want to be told that they can do it. Make the effort to encourage people and watch them. When you do that, often times the person will get more done.

The people who start now have a greater chance for success than people who sit back, think and waste time waiting.

Think, act and then do. Move. Keep moving. Doing those things will help you get more things done. You are going to make mistakes and you will be wrong sometimes. That’s OK. Keep trying to do the best you can and it will be OK.

If you know what your aim is, then it will be far easier to know the right thing to do to hit your target. When the goal is clear, it is easier to be successful.   

A Gallop poll studied or defined what intelligence really is and it is not about grades, IQ or genius. They found that intelligence is defined by the way you act and what you do.

We all get to make choices and decisions. Not everybody will be happy with what you do, but it is up to you to decide what you are going to do each day.

EP48: Be Brilliant at the Basics

Dec 17, 2016 01:10:31

Description:

On this episode of the AActivity Call podcast with Andy Albright, you will hear all about how being brilliant at the basics will take you to the next level in business. When you get the basics down, you will be more successful.

You need your team focused on doing the basics from the beginning so that you don't have to go back and correct bad habits later.

Andy asks, "What is it (the thing), that if you don't do it in your business you will have dire consequences?"

Andy got successful when he narrowed his focus to as few things as possible that he knew he was good at.

EP47: How To Use Inconsistency To Grow and Be More Successful

Dec 10, 2016 59:16

Description:

On this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright delivered a strong message from his office in front of a live audience in Burlington, N.C. at The Alliance's corporate headquarters.

Are you right there with people, trying to encourage them on a regular basis?

If you quit then they might quit! You have to stay in the game or you can expect other people to stay in the game.

Maybe you aren't consistent? There's good news for you: most successful people have terrible inconsistencies.  

Without encouragement and faith, people will get down on themselves. It happens every single day.  

You have to work hard to be good at anything.

The reason you need to be better is so you don't take away from what you're doing when you're active. If you don't become a better person you'll lose everything you have.  

If you know what's wrong with you then other people know it too. Don't worry about that. Get back to work.

Work on something that will propel you to the next level. When you have a mission, it is not hard to know what you should be doing. The Alliance is in a war against poverty and it is our mission to eliminate poverty for those who "Do."

Here are some tips from Andy that will help you moving forward.

Do fewer things! Don't try to do everything

What are the Top 3 things you need to do TODAY. Make sure they are the most important things you need to be doing. These are your A tasks. Based on your WHY, what are the most important things.

Work on things that you put down more of the time, or ALL of the time. The more time you spend on those important things, the more productive you are on the outside then the more happy you will be inside. What are your "Got To Do" high-priority stuff?

 

Start from where you are Use what you have  Do all that you can do. 

You are where you are so stop evaluating it so much.  

A problem is just a question that hasn't been asked.  

What can you do right now? Then do everything you can do on those things.

EP46: Valuable Tips to Help You Help More Clients

Dec 3, 2016 01:03:17

Description:

Andy Albright hosted a special edition of The Alliance Activity Call during an Instant Thunder event at corporate headquarters in Burlington, N.C. with more than 200 people in attendance for the podcast.

Listen in as Andy interviews some of the top agents from around the country in an effort to help you be more successful with your clients in the field.

EP45: How Did Kyle Keator Do That?

Nov 19, 2016 49:37

Description:

Kyle Keator served as your guest host of this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast while Andy Albright was in Raleigh, N.C. delivering a keynote address at the Shelton Leadership Forum at N.C. State University.

Find out how Kyle Keator did something "big" in only four days on this show!

At The Alliance, everybody is special. Now, that doesn't mean that everybody is going to make $1 million annually. It might not even mean that everybody can make more than $100,000. However, YOU are capable and Andy Albright believes that everybody has the potential to be a high-income earner.

We have our SEALTeam20 and you are encouraged to be a member of this elite group. We also have the Good Samaritan Bonus, which is another program that can help you give back to charities in a big way.

Maybe you are not where you need to be for either of those deals, but you are still part of the family even if you don't hit those marks.

The Alliance wants YOU to be active in both the SEALTeam20 and the GSB. If you are willing, able and ready, then let's go. If you ain't scared of a phone, let's get dialing. If you have a car and you are not afraid of driving, let's roll.

Crank up your laptop and run a craigslist ad. Let's find two recruits this month!

We need those things communicated across the country in our HotSpots meetings. Maybe you are not ready to it now, but eventually you are going to make a decision to do and not think.

The Alliance has put lines in place so that you know where you stand. They start really low and they go up, up, up. The decision of where you fall is up to you and your activity. You are invited to step over lines too. Where you are today doesn't matter. You are invited to step over any line you would like.

The Alliance isn't here to hold you back. It is here to cheer you on so you can go places you've never been before. But, there's no pressure.   

If you are making the kind of money that makes you happy, then great. If you are comfortable then that's OK. What Kyle Keator decided was that he wasn't OK with where he was financially. He started changing things up and pushing for more.

Andy asked Keator if he could set 20 appointments a week, recruit at least two new people a month and write $20,000 each month. Kyle said he could and now he's going to hold himself to that promise. 

In 2017, the people that do those numbers are going to be recognized and rewarded through ST20. Income, special prizes, trips, etc.

ST20 will lead to cash flow, higher self-esteem and recognition. 

What level are you shooting for next year? Are you planning now? Get emotional about it RIGHT NOW, then decide to book some time to make dials for sales and recruiting.

Ask somebody that is where you want to be what you should do next. If you are a manager, help somebody else figure out what to do next. Be specific and exact. Successful people figure out what needs to be done next and what is most important.

Be clear about what you want and what it will take to make it happen. Your actions will back up your words ... or not. Don't talk about it, if you aren't DOING anything about it.  

Keator said he's got to do what he's got to do. He's not worried about what the next President thinks or even the governor. He's gonna do what he needs to do.

Why? Kyle doesn't want to go back to being broke ... ever again! He is self-employed and doesn't want to work for somebody else and wear the uniform they tell him to wear.

He's doing it for his family. College isn't cheap. Christmas isn't cheap. Traveling the world isn't cheap.  

Set some goals. Figure out you "BECAUSE" and focus on that. Write it down.

Kyle wants to do it ...

Because I want to give my church a $1,000

Because I want to give Tim Goad my GSB

Because I want to pay for my kids education.

Because I want a patch.

Because I want to be a part of team.

Because I want to be a part of SealTeam20

Because I want to be GSB 12 out of 12 months next year

Let your manager know what your "BECAUSE" is and work toward making it reality.

What we got to do is get people COMMUNICATING their BECAUSE. Some people call it a WHY. Kyle is calling it a BECAUSE.

We got a book, its very simple, its called The Alliance Activity book.It is just one of the tools The Alliance has in place for you to be successful. These tools help you execute the basics.

 

EP44: How YOU Can Be A Member of SEALTeam20 With The Alliance

Nov 12, 2016 01:29:51

Description:

On this episode of The Alliance’s Activity podcast, Andy Albright talked SealTeam20 and interviewed a select group of agents, who have committed to hitting the mark to be ST20 members in 2017 now.

What does it take to be SealTeam20 material? Well, you need to personally produce $20,000 per month, book 20 appointments weekly and recruit two new agents. That’s it.

Albright spoke with Steve Frickert, Michele Alleman, Jay Turner, Joe Walker, Kyle Keator, Brant Swindle, etc.

Maybe you think you don’t have enough time to be SealTeam20. Well, have you thought about hiring a secretary, more people to work at your house, hire a staff?

Jay Turner knows that if you book 20 appointments then you will hit your goals. The truth is the truth whether you do it or not. Turner, a former fireman, enjoys knowing what the temperature is going to be at his job now, rather than running into a burning building and not knowing how hot the fire will be.

Andy just met with the fine people at Foresters and they discussed how limitations are set by you. You Can do whatever you put your mind to doing. Obstacles are put in your way to be knocked down, not to stop you!

It takes passion to be great at what you do. If you are not passionate about what you do then why in the world would somebody else be? Operate with great enthusiasm. Think about David facing Goliath. David heard the call and he did what he needed to do to get the victory. When David lost his passion and got comfortable, he fell prey to the “comfort zone” and life got difficult.

You get messed up when you don’t have the passion for what you do. Don’t get comfortable and stay home and rest on past victories. You have to keep the passion.

When you attend a meeting, ask yourself the following questions:

Did I do my best to be happy during the meeting? Did I do my best to find meaning and purpose during the meeting? Did I do my best to find Positive relationships during the meeting? Did I do my best to be Fully Engaged during the meeting?

How would you rank yourself in those areas?

EP43: How To Eliminate Distractions in Life so You Can Be More Successful

Nov 12, 2016 58:16

Description:

Andy Albright delivered The Alliance's Activity podcast live from his office at The Alliance's headquarters in Burlington, N.C.

Andy talked about how to eliminate distractions in your life so you can be more successful.

When you are starting your day, do you start by thinking about you and the things you are in control of? Take a piece of paper out and draw a circle and write the word "you" in it. Start listing out the things you can directly control inside your circle. Outside of the circle, write down things you need to ignore because you cannot control or impact it. Everything outside the circle of you is a distraction. It's noise. It prevents you from doing what you should be doing.

Who do you have around you? When you have great people around you, they will help keep you focused on what is inside your circle. They will help you stay on track. They will help you keep working on things you have control of. Part of defining your reality is by having great people around you to keep you centered and on task.

Worry about what is in the circle. Don't worry about the drama. Focus on the facts. Work on improving yourself. Invest your time in the people that truly matter to you. Spend time around people that make you better and are where you want to be one day. People who are successful are great at staying in their circle and avoid spending time on things that they cannot control.

Put yourself in position to win. Avoid the noise. Figure out how to make things happen and keep doing.

What is in the circle of you? Can you put yourself around people that help you? Can you go to meetings that help you improve? Can you listen to audios that make you better? Can you keep "doing" even when it isn't easy? Your thoughts will determine what you do. When you are thinking correctly, then you will be successful. What are you doing when you are not working? Andy believes that in order to be successful, you have to think about what you are doing 24 hours a day.

When you learn to take control of what you do and stop letting others dictate what you do, then you are going to make a big impact. One person on "fire" and crazy about how they spend their time can change the world.

When you start planning your time with great intention, then the pieces of the puzzle that are fuzzy to so many become crystal clear for you and you can put it all together.

EP42: How Do People Sell Like Crazy?

EP38: Dealing With The 3 Cs of Life

Nov 12, 2016 52:00

Description:

Andy Albright hosted The Alliance's Activity podcast live from his office at The Alliance's headquarters in Burlington, N.C.

The main topic of today's call was about achieving your peak performance and helpings other people do the same thing.

Whatever we think about is the direction we are headed in. When you get so focused on what you are doing that you don't notice all the distractions around you then you will get to where you want to be. It might not happen as fast as you would like, but it will happen.

There are three keys to Peak Performance: How to improves yours, how to improve theirs and how to measure improvement.

Setting simple goals, working on specific tasks and taking deliberate measures are how you cut through the clutter and get things you want now. When you do that, you will get the results you want sooner.

Always be thinking intentionally. Be simple, clear, deliberate and definite about what you need to do. If you need to make 27 phone calls then make 27 phone calls. To do well with The Alliance, you need to do one thing: sell, recruit and build.

The Three C's

Commitment - the more committed you are, the more creative you are about making things happen. The more determined you are, the more you are able to focus on the task at hand.

Completion - There are endorphins in your body that get released when you are "all in." Doing 90 percent is average. Average performance gets you average results. Crazy will get you crazy. The more specific things you have, the more you get done. This is not a "get things done" discussion, but instead it is about getting your subconscious to get to work. This will activate "miracles" in your life.

Closure - Anything that is not done in your life should be knocked out now. Get to it.

Don't let alibies be your ally. Anybody can make an excuse or come up with a reason not to be this or do that. How many diseases do you have holding you back? Don't play the blame game. It doesn't help change things. Don't blame your wife. Don't blame your lack of education. Don't blame your life away. Alibies are self-created. They are like your children and you will defend them to the death.

The first thing you have to conquer is yourself. Plato said the most shameful thing is to be conquered by yourself. Most of the ugliness we see in others is actually a reflection of our own habits and nature.

EP33: Ignore the Negative, Focus on What You Can Control

Nov 12, 2016 59:09

Description:

Andy Albright delivered a live version of The Alliance's Activity podcast in front of 200 people in Burlington, N.C. during an Instant Thunder event.

Most people don’t like to be told what they are doing wrong. However, many of us make the mistake of trying to correct the behavior of others when we should be focused on our own affairs. No man should ever throw a stone when he lives in a glass house too.

Andy was joined on the call by people in attendance at the event and via phone by some of the emerging leaders of The Alliance to talk about what they want out of life, out of The Alliance and what assets they need to get all that they want.

Negative stuff will mess you up. You have to be focused to keep that stuff from hampering you from being the best you can be. Learn to remain calm and not let anger get the best of you when life throws you a curveball. Keep things as simple as everything. The only thing stopping you is YOU. Nothing is holding you back. You can have anything you want if you are willing to work for it and you don’t quit. The trick is that you only have so long to get what you want so how you go after it makes all the difference in the world.

One way to keep yourself on track is through reading great books. Andy suggested that everybody know the following six books:

The 8 Steps to Success by Andy Albright Millionaire Maker Manual by Andy Albright Goals by Brian Tracy The Magic of Thinking Big by David Schwartz People Factor by Van Moody First Things First by Stephen Covey Read those books and then implement the lessons in them.

Stay focused. Keep working. Help people. Enjoy life. Have fun! Make Money! Make a Difference!

EP26: How YOU Can Build a Massive Organization That Changes Lives

Nov 12, 2016 01:01:46

Description:

Andy Albright hosted this week's episode of The Alliance's Activity podcast and the topic was: How you can build a massive organization that changes lives.

People make the mistake of talking about what they are doing instead of asking more successful people what they are doing to be successful. Asking questions is important. You will get better when you operate by asking how to get better than telling other people how successful you are.

The Alliance knows that we need more Team Builders to help more people be successful. How do you create more TBs faster? The way to build a massive team is by finding people who can reach Team Builder and developing them into leaders.

The fastest way to make money faster with The Alliance is to sell something. The fastest way to get promoted is to hire somebody to sell something. Ideally, you do both of them and then you get an explosion!

Don't let other people's problems impact your behavior. You can't fix everybody's problems. Stay focused on what you are doing. Make your work the most important thing. When you stay focused on YOU then you will be more successful. You can help other people, but you have to still do what you need to do. We don't judge people. We give everybody the same shot. Now, if people aren't doing the right things, we don't "waste" valuable time with those people. You don't have enough time to waste it on people who aren't doing what they should to be successful.

EP15: Your Location Doesn't Control Your Success

Nov 3, 2016 01:05:22

Description:

On this edition of The Alliance Activity podcast, Jason Carey and Chadwick Ray discuss the biggest differences in the East Coast and the West Coast. Some of those differences include attitudes, people, territories, leads and making money from coast to coast.

As different as things might seem on both coasts, one thing is the same: people need life insurance. Once you get in the home with a client, you quickly find out that people need the same kinds of coverage and they want to be protected with life insurance.

No matter where you live the leads are the same across the country. When you are working to get referrals from people, it still boils down to talking to people and relating to them. When people trust you and know that you are trying to help them, they are going to be more likely to help you in return. If you don't ask for what you want then you will certainly get it. Ask more questions and get better results.

EP14: Where To Find Time and When to Engage or NOT Engage

Nov 3, 2016 01:11:40

Description:

Andy Albright hosted this edition of The Alliance Activity podcast to cover two main topics: where to find the time and when to engage and not to engage.

There are ways to make time for everything. When you see a person that seems to get more done, too many people think there is some mystical magic to it. Now, there is a trick to getting things done. People that leverage time are successful. They find ways to get more done than most are willing to, and they keep thinking of ways to make more things happen.

If you could figure out one positive activity that you could do in your life what would it be? If you could change something, what would it be? Just pick out one thing to focus on.

What one thing would you change in your business? If you could get really good at one thing, what would it be?

Can you figure out your one thing personally and professionally to improve drastically? Write it down now.

Are you going to work on a Saturday morning or are you going to sleep in late? What does your calendar tell you? What are you going to do tonight? How about later today? Instead of putting "things" off why not get to work and start accomplishing tasks.

When you stop putting things off then you start developing a winning mentality that will take you to the next level.

Do your actions "actively" show that you are working to get better? Are you intentionally moving with a clear purpose and mission? This is a choice.

Successful people are where they are now because of choices they made a long time ago. They made decisions and choices and they took great action to reach their potential.

Andy's friend John C. Maxwell loves to talk about "intentional living." What are you doing now that you weren't before? Take a moment to really think about that and decide what you are going to change. It might not happen today, but it can start today and it can start right now. You can't have movement until you move!

Until you can commit then you will stay where you are. You have to decide if you want to win and you have to decide how big you want your victories to be. People spend too much time focusing on urgent things when they should be doing important things. Why? People are addicted to the power that comes from tasks that lead to instant success and gratification.

Recreational activities will not help you financially. They will actually hurt you. It's OK to play cards, golf, etc. but just know that it won't change your life. People do this stuff for fun.

You have to focus on the important tasks in your life and let the other stuff go or at least put it off until later. Learn to make it a habit to spend more time on the important stuff.

EP13: Are YOU Realizing Your Full Potential?

Nov 3, 2016 01:01:13

Description:

Andy Albright hosted the NAActivity call from the Alliance Convention Center at NAA headquarters during an Instant Thunder event.

One of the things that makes Andy mad is seeing people with all the potential in the world not realize their potential. It is not as much about talent so much as it is about figuring out what you are willing to do. That is what separates great people from good people.

Are you working on doing what you are good at? Do you focus on that consistently? How focused are you?

Dysfunction can stop you from growing. You can have all the talent in the world and not be successful because you get off track and don't stay focused.

Can you master avoiding the pitfalls that can derail you? Be a master of putting off low priority items that are not urgent and important.

If you've ever been on a boat you know that you can look behind you and see a wake of water for a long way. How big is your wake? It takes speed, size and direction to create a big wake. Slow boats don't leave a wake. What is the "wake" of your relationships and your task? How many friends did you keep? How many phone calls did you make? Results matter � period!

How do people feel about you? Are you bringing them closer to the fire or pushing them outside the heat they seek desperately? Are you attracting the right people? After they spend time around you, do they want to come back?

How is your integrity? It takes a long time to build it up and for others to trust that you have it, but it only takes one bad move to ruin it forever. You have to make decisions all the time. Each choice you make can improve your stock or cause it to come crashing down in a flash.

Andy will be the first to tell you that he messes up all the time. He is also quick to let things go and move on. You have to keep trying and know that it will be OK.

EP11: Why It Matters To Encourage Others and Yourself

Nov 3, 2016 01:02:57

Description:

Do you need encouragement or critics? This is a powerful question to consider. Most of us judge ourselves with truth and we see everybody else’s “highlight” reel. Which one of those is real?

Andy Albright hosted The Alliance Activity podcast live from his office at NAA headquarters in Burlington, N.C.

People need encouragement and less sarcasm from people and the world. A seed will grow if it is planted in the right environment. More people need to help more people grow. We don’t need to beat them down, we need to raise them up and get them on track. When you believe in somebody and encourage them, you will be shocked by how much it means to them. When you helps others you will see that it actually helps you.

When you build relationships you get well. When you build relationships you grow. It’s natural to grow. The more you can give to others the more you get in return. People who give of their time, money, effort and energy are rewarded in ways you can’t even imagine. Make it a habit to be encourage people in all that you do.

Watch what happens when people pick up on your attitude and encouragement. People will start following you. It will grow and grow.

People need to be on a team. The Alliance is a place that is full of teammates to have your back and encourage you consistently. Tell people that you are proud of them. It’s a simple act that shows people you care and want them to succeed.
