The Road To Amazing Isn’t Always Clear At The Start

<br /> The Road To Amazing Isn’t Always Clear At The Start<br />

Have you ever put so much effort into something only to have it seemingly blow up in your face?

This question we ask quite a few people, we ask experts through our Three Feet From Gold Interviews, we ask family members, friends, and even people that have written us asking for help. It all seems to make such great sense does it not? Well in essence it sure does, find that nice beautiful “Gold Nugget” Inside every adversity right?

Well this post is all about that but it is about something even deeper. I read Josh Hind’s bok recently, you can actually check out the book review on it HERE if you wish. Josh HInds It's Your Life LIVE BIG Book CoverIn lesson 7 Josh shares a vital ingredient in all adversity, this ingredient is pretty simple but so often overlooked. Before we get to that principal, I would like to share a quick story with you.

Just last week Josh and I got on a video call to record his expert interview scheduled to launch on November 18th. Our interview was filled with excitement, joy, I know it is what everyone says but AWESOME content and it was jam packed with everything you love. So as we completed the interview, I knew that it would be at least a week before I would be able to get to the editing portion (I was coding the members area for all of ya!) Not a member yet, click HERE so as we stood on November 6th 2012, I was just getting to the editing portion of Josh’s interview. I have to tell you I was really excited to see the video as I used this new recording device that had proven to be amazing for all our radio shows, the audio was superb in every call.

Here in lies the adversity! I went to look at the specs of the video and it was recorded at 10FPS. What? Now for all of you who work in video or have dipped into it at some point, you will know that 10 FPS is not a very high frame rate at all. Out expert videos are recored and produced between 25 and 29.97 FPS. Needless to say and so as not to go into some pretty “Geeky” stuff. The videos were pretty much useless.

I had to do that you would never really want to do. I had to call Josh and explain that I didn’t do my proper homework and I was not as prepared as I thought I was. Next was to ask for him to once again take time out of his busy schedule to record another expert interview. As the gentalman he is, it was no issue. Which brings us full circle to the point behind this post. During our conversation, I had said to Josh that I believed it was a useless piece of video and he asked how the audio was. “Well it is really good” I said.Josh then came up with thsi idea. Below is segments of our interview for you to listen to.

What an amazing idea, see in everything, EVERYTHING that happens to us, there is always an opposite. Napoleon Hill and Josh Hinds are both right. Mr. Hill said that “With every adversity is planted the seed of an equal or greater benefit” Josh Hinds said “The challenge is that in order to benefit from the lesson adversity has in store for us, we must first be willing to accept there’s a lesson in the first place”, both of these statements will go down officially into history.

Please enjoy these Audio recordings of the interview that went from Horrible to amazing in 5:34 Minutes (That was the length of the call with Josh)

Definition Of Success

In this audio recording, Josh Hinds shares what is most likely the biggest element ni reaching what you determine to be success. Even though it is the most important element, it is the element that most overlook and under appreciate. That element is: What's YOUR definition of success? Is your definition YOURS and yours alone or are you trying to live someone else's "Success Definition"?

The Evolution Of Success

Josh likes to this as success begets success and he is so right. Success does not have tobe monumental, your success points along your route to your ultimate goal will help you expand and grow. Our opportunity to choose are beautiful and monumental moments.

Belief In The Underlined Gold Nugget

Napoleon Hill said in his historic book Think And Grow Rich "With EVERY adversity is planted the seed of an equal or greater benefit" You will be very hard pressed tro find anyone that thinks positively to say Mr. Hill is totally wrong. There is a big but here, it is that YOU have to believe there are these seeds of an equal or greater benefit in every adversity or else, are you going to find something that you don't believe is there?

The Work Around

You have heard the saying about the 100 ways to skin a cat right? Well this is nothing about that although it is about working around obstacles by thinking possibility thoughts, brainstorming, and believing in the single most important person in the world...YOU..Oh ya and YES I did call it a "Walk Around" Not a work around when I was asking Josh. So I already know I messed up! JOY!!



Reacting VS Responding

Reacting VS Responding

Are You reacting or responding?

Reacting Vs Responding

He absolutely blew a gasket. The reaction of this man was as if I just cut them off to the point that they had to drive on the sidewalk.

He started throwing me the bird, screaming absolutely disgusting profanities that R rated movies can’t repeat. Screaming at the top of his lungs while my 7 year old daughter is watching with the most astonishing look I have ever seen on her face.

My crime, I just swerved a little while I was looking into the back seat at my daughter when she was asking me a question and my vehicle moved about a foot to a foot and a half into his lane.

Sound familiar? Ever happened to you?

This is a reaction that we see all to much these days. People absolutely loosing their cool over something that in the grand scheme of things is totally irrelevant. These people choose to react instead of respond.

We have all been there at some point in our lives but where has it got you? Did it change the situation for the better or did you say or do something that makes you wish that you could turn back the clocks of time and change your “reaction”?

Me too! Reacting is simply letting your emotions control you not the other way around. By taking a step back or even if you want to look at it like taking a step out of your body and changing the way you are looking at the situation….You will find the situation will change.

If the gentleman that was loosing his cool over a car swerving slightly into his lane would have simply put his internal body filter up and not lost his cool, he most likely would have said to himself “Ya I’ve been there, it is so simple to just loose that line when you are doing something other than driving.

I mean we have all done it and when we correct ourselves and get back in our lane, our heart is pounding and all of a sudden you are paying better attention to the road than you have in ages. Why? Well for starters most of us driver through Paradigms but that is another post.

It scares us just as much as it scares the drivers around us right? When we react to something instead of respond we will miss so many of the benefits that come out of any situation.

With every adversity is planted the seed of an equal or greater benefit

– Napoleon Hill –

Napoleon Hills quote is not only true it is something that you should repeat anytime you are faced with a situation that you face that you feel is an adversity.

Now responding comes from a calm mind, a quite thought, and the chance to look at any situation from at least (I believe anyway) two other angles before you respond to it. Now this could be sleeping on an email that really got your juices flowing, waiting a few second to respond to a friend asking your advice, smiling at the gentlemen that is screaming at you for moving over into his lane, or even disciplining your children.

All situations can wait for a response rather than a reaction. No matter how severe you believe the situation to be, you can help by responding not reacting.

Think of what you say every time you speak. Remember, you can take the words back but not the feelings that the person you were speaking to felt when you said them.

Watch your words, respond don’t react, and have a great day!
