pockets how do we mark it in a way the
00:18
left Hoss get our products and our
00:20
services and the things that we believe
00:21
in out to the world and yet still remain
00:24
profitable that is the question in this
00:27
podcast we’ll give you the answers
00:29
my name is Russell Brunson and welcome
00:32
to marketing secrets alright everyone so
00:38
I I had just dropped something off my
00:41
kids school because yes once again they
00:43
forgot something they suck I like their
00:47
dad anyway just want to jump on today
00:50
because I
00:56
it’s if you’ve been listening you know
00:58
that I recently hired another coach in
00:59
my life I should have at least one if
01:02
not multiple coaches at any given time
01:04
coach meet the different stuff because I
01:06
found that in fact I saw my kids this
01:09
last night I said if you want be
01:11
successful whatever it is like pick the
01:13
King norm successful at first school
01:15
basketball trombone and whatever it is
01:17
and then number two is find a coach to
01:19
actually coach you through it and so
01:21
that I told my sight when I was putting
01:25
to bed and I told them I was like can I
01:26
preach I figure out stuff I want to be
01:29
better at in my life and then I go find
01:30
a coach to coach me through the process
01:32
hold me accountable so a little while
01:36
ago I was listen to a podcast from Ryan
01:38
Moran and Jeff woods and talking about
01:40
the one thing and anyway loved it so
01:43
called Jeff and hired him and he’s gonna
01:46
coach me through things so I had my
01:47
second coaching call today and I wanted
01:50
to to post this compare my ex driving by
01:56
because I want to make this video just
01:58
kind of walk us through how to be
02:00
coachable because it’s shocking to me
02:02
how uncoachable most people are and
02:07
acted at periscope about this like two
02:09
two years ago or something like that
02:11
about that and it’s funny because I
02:14
remember when I was wrestling
02:16
I started in freestyle Greco and that’s
02:18
kind of happens during the offseason I
02:20
had this coach his name’s Greg Williams
02:22
who’s now the coach at UVU anyway he he
02:26
would go and teach me stuff and then I
02:28
remember like between matches like he
02:31
keep pulling me sighs like hey you need
02:32
a level change better you gotta lower
02:34
your or whatever and like you know just
02:36
walk me through I need to do and I go
02:37
back out and I would just do the thing
02:38
he told me and I remember because he
02:41
told me afterwards they got her had I’ve
02:42
been program probably a year so he said
02:44
you’re one of the most most coachable
02:45
athletes that I’ve ever had he’s like
02:47
you’re not the most talented but one of
02:49
the most coachable I was like I don’t
02:51
even
02:51
it wasn’t cold he’s like what most
02:53
people I tell them what to do and then
02:55
they listen they nod their head and they
02:57
don’t do it and he said with you think I
03:00
tell you dude and said the next match
03:01
you go when you do that thing and he’s
03:02
like that’s not normal I most people
03:04
don’t do that he said you’re really
03:05
really coachable that’s like huh I just
03:07
think everyone just did that and they
03:09
have a coach they believe in why would
03:10
they just listen what they say and then
03:11
do it my dad podcasts a couple of weeks
03:13
ago talking about you know pick a mentor
03:15
listen and then do right like same thing
03:18
and I look it
03:22
it’s like Dan Henry if you guys know Dan
03:24
he’s one of our inner circle members who
03:25
bought the dot-com seekers book read the
03:27
chapter on perfect webinar did a perfect
03:29
webinar in five within five months made
03:30
a million bucks so he went into um
03:32
clickfunnels prove you this weekend and
03:34
he was like hey guys he’s like I just
03:36
you know Russell talked before webinar I
03:38
did it made million bucks like why
03:39
aren’t you guys all just doing that like
03:40
he was kind of confused
03:41
okay Dan’s very coachable and then
03:44
there’s like 100 as was morning a
03:46
hundred and seventy comments from people
03:48
and it was basically a hundred seventy
03:50
excuses why people hadn’t done yet well
03:51
I’m still working on my slides well I
03:53
just you know I’m not really a pitch
03:55
person oh well I just I can’t figure out
03:57
my offer oh and like thing after thing
03:59
he’s like dude just friggin do it
04:00
like you got the best coach in the world
04:03
telling you and it was fun even one guy
04:04
who wasn’t a coach was like well I’ve
04:06
coached my people doesn’t work for
04:07
everyone and Dan’s calm it was like we
04:09
must not be very coach it’s awesome so
04:13
but I kind of again the the point of
04:17
this is like being coachable it’s like
04:19
just doing what the coach says and
04:21
anyway so it’s been fun because I’ve had
04:25
one coach for the last year that I’m
04:27
worked with on one aspect of my life and
04:29
she’s been awesome and I’m not perfect
04:32
doing what she says but but I think I’m
04:35
pretty good at doing that and then I
04:37
assume like I was with most people but
04:39
Jeff’s been coaching me and it’s funny
04:41
because like this was our second
04:42
coaching call this morning and one
04:43
things wanted to do it and have a time
04:44
to do it and instead of like let me off
04:46
okay oh it’s okay you can do next week
04:47
he was like it was in the first like 30
04:53
seconds the thing he’s like hey like you
04:55
know some about what happened I was like
04:56
oh I’d max usually this week because
04:58
Todd’s flying pack Todd’s flying in
05:00
today from allowed to Todd’s my partner
05:01
clickfunnels and I was I wouldn’t a lot
05:03
of planning some of that and he’s just
05:04
like he’s a heading you’re planning with
05:05
him better if you would actually finish
05:06
this sounds like oh crap probably better
05:09
and then anyway so it’s kind of like
05:11
help me my feet to the fire and then and
05:12
then this colleagues like basically like
05:14
okay next week these are things you have
05:16
done by everything he’s like when you
05:18
have these done I was like Friday he’s
05:19
like that’s not specific enough for me
05:21
Friday at 4:30 my time is they cool if
05:22
you don’t get done what happens I was
05:24
like you’re gonna punish me maybe he was
05:27
like if you haven’t done by Friday 4:30
05:29
we’re canceling the call for next Monday
05:30
I was like oh crap oh he’s holding my
05:35
feet to the fire and it was like
05:38
something I could I could walk you
05:40
through from a coaching standpoint what
05:41
I’m enjoy about getting coached by him
05:43
but it was just it was just making me
05:46
make sure I do it right like and I think
05:49
one of the problems a lot of us have is
05:50
we let ourselves off the hook in fact I
05:52
did it and I get I’m very very coachable
05:54
person
05:55
and even with that like this week I was
05:57
like I let myself off hook like oh I
05:58
don’t need to finish this part of it
06:00
because of this and yet I’ve committed
06:02
to the getting that part done and I was
06:05
just interesting you know it’s funny cuz
06:08
the thought the week I was product he’s
06:09
we kind of picked I quote the one thing
06:11
I wasn’t focus on for the week and from
06:12
that I had like found the person if I
06:16
found the role I was looking for found
06:17
the person doing the interview process
06:18
like going through the whole thing like
06:20
it’s got like impressive how fast I was
06:22
moving but yet I hadn’t followed through
06:24
in all my commitments I did most women
06:25
not all of them it was just like crap I
06:27
gotta remember that like I got a I got a
06:29
make and keep commitments like people to
06:31
succeed might there’s one like really
06:32
strange commonality between all of them
06:34
they’re good not just making commitments
06:36
a lot if you ever can make commitments
06:37
I’m gonna do this right I’m gonna lose
06:38
weight I’m gonna make money I’m gonna
06:40
like everyone’s gonna making commitments
06:41
but people are successful gonna making
06:43
and keeping commitments and I fell to
06:47
one my commitments for this week and it
06:49
sucks and I’m like God dang it like oh
06:52
it’s frustrating me cuz I’m like I I
06:54
know better not like I’m someone who
06:55
makes and keeps equipments and I didn’t
06:57
on one of the things I kept most of them
06:58
but I didn’t keep this one and so those
07:01
you want to be you want to be coachable
07:03
and want to have success and understand
07:05
like the big commonality is that the
07:08
success people are making and keeping
07:10
commitments so again once we can find a
07:11
coach or whatever it is and then a
07:13
commitment and then keep that commitment
07:14
and just do it and don’t give it all
07:16
excuses Alex Ramon Z at the last inner
07:18
circle meeting said that any every sales
07:21
call you’re on someone’s getting sold
07:22
either you’re selling them on the
07:23
product or service that they need or
07:24
they’re selling you an excuse why they
07:26
can’t get it and it’s just like dang
07:28
that’s so interesting like even we’re
07:32
buying the excuse or they’re buying the
07:34
product and it’s the same thing for us
07:35
like like if like I just look at that
07:39
threat of 170 plus people who like they
07:41
eachother excuse why why they had done
07:43
it yet and Dan was like dude I did it
07:44
within five months was a millionaire why
07:46
don’t you guys just do it like oh well
07:47
and they’re selling themselves on the
07:49
excuse as opposed to just like making a
07:51
commitment and then keeping the
07:52
commitment so that is my message for
07:54
today making keep commitments all
07:56
successful people do they’re gonna
07:57
making them and get a key
07:59
I fell this week I made much penance and
08:01
I kept almost all him but I did not keep
08:03
all of them so this week I’m better I’m
08:05
gonna make and keep commitments to
08:06
myself to my coaches and to the people
08:10
that I love and care about and I work
08:11
with and I work for and I serve and all
08:13
that kind of stuff so that’s my my goal
08:15
and my game plan is to make and keep
08:17
commitments this week and be very
08:18
specific and write down all can this I
08:20
make I’m gonna make sure that I keep
08:21
each and every one of them and that is
08:24
the path of success so there you go guys
08:26
hope that helps make keep commitments
08:28
write them down and make sure you do
08:30
them and don’t yourself off the hook
08:31
otherwise you’ll just keep making
08:34
excuses and again if you’re buying that
08:37
excuse then you didn’t you didn’t buy
08:39
the thing you got you got in you so
08:40
that’s like I you guys heading into the
08:42
day it’s gonna be fun week I get to work
08:44
all week Todd’s in town we’re gonna plan
