If you had a chance to go back in your life and make different choices,
which ones would you change and which ones would you expand upon?
There was a movie with Robin Williams that had as its theme,
what if you had a rerun of your life and could see all the things
that you had done, good and bad throughout your lifetime up till
this time in your life? What the movie dealt with were choices.
What if a chip was implanted in your brain when you were in your
infancy and then you were able to see a “rerun” of your life much
later in life? By watching this rerun, would this allow you to make
better choices from this time on? Or would you continue on down
the path you have always taken? Perhaps you life has been a very
good one and all the choices you have made have been good ones,
(which I would doubt) or possibly there are choices that you might
like to change.
The choice you make today will determine the next highlight reel
that you might be able to view. There are certainly traps that we
seem to get into and might have to look at these with a closer eye.
1)Living for now, rather than looking into the future and
making some decisions based on what the future might hold.
Saving money at this time for events later on in life or choosing
a mentor to follow that has had the successes you would like.
2) Living for the acceptance of others rather than living a life that
is a good one and being who you are and not always being what you
feel others might think. Standing on your own two feet and becoming
that leader that is inside of you.
3) Repeating other people’s results. You can always learn from
other people’s mistakes, so you don’t have to experience the
If we do what you have always been doing, we’ll get what
we have always gotten. This is why in our choice making,
we need to look at the “reruns” of our life and decide if we
want to continue to repeat the same choices that we have
made or make new choices based on what we had done
right and other things that were not quite as good as
we could have made.
In our pursuit of the brass ring in our internet business, we
continue to make choices based on what we have learned and
what we have been told. But too many times we have those
nagging thoughts and ideas that maybe, just maybe that
we can put some of our own ideas to work and then we wonder
what went wrong, especially early on in our marketing business.
Good mentors are going to help you get started and will do
most everything to help you through some rough periods
but are not going to hold your hand all the way through the
processes without you learning to stand up for yourself.
It reminds me of the last few days of watching two young Robins
learn to fly with their mother and father close by watching. One
of the Young Robins was on our window sill and would fly to the
cover of our BBQ Grill and back and forth before he had enough
security in himself to fly off in another direction. The parents
were there to help if needed but kept their distance watching
the young ones learn to fly.
This is where our choices have to made (especially if we want
to be successful in the long run) to follow our mentors and
leaders who have been successful. Many times their successes
have come through trial and error and they, in turn, can hand
down to us the results of their efforts. Why should we repeat
the same problems or choices, if they have already proven that
their way has worked?
Let our “reruns” in the future be the result of good choices
that we have made because we listened to our mentors
and their successes.
David Wood and David Sharpe have both learned from the
trial and error school of hard knocks. Today their mentorship
has allowed over 100,000 people to start their choice of making
it in the internet marketing arena and become successful because
these two guys went before us and made it happen.
Expect to get dinged here and there as you pursue your goal,
but like wine that gets better with age, you get better when
you have failed a time or two and learned from the experience.
