3. Seek outside counsel. Conor McGregor has no shortage of confidence. To say he’s brash, borderline arrogant, unafraid of what others think of him and unapologetic for who he is would be a gross understatement.
He is authentic to his core and lives his life on his terms.
Unfortunately, this strategy has not served him as of late and his actions and decisions have caused him a tremendous amount of trouble over the last 18 months or so.
If you’re like me, you were shocked when you first saw Tony Robbins standing in the ring celebrating with McGregor and his entourage after his stunning victory over Cerrone in his last fight. And, as stunned as I may have been, it made complete sense to me as I thought about it.
McGregor’s plan(s), strategies and tactics were not getting him the results he desired and longer and he really didn’t know how to get them on his own. So, he reached out to someone — a coach — who knew how to get him over the hump; who knew some new and better strategies to get him out of the place where he was stuck and onto an even better track to bigger and better success.
We all only know so much and to that end, we can only get ourselves so far towards what we want to achieve. When we reach that point, we need to accept that we need help to get to the next level.
Reaching out for help and guidance for a new strategy isn’t an admission of failure or weakness. In fact, it’s a show of strength and admittance that you’re smart enough to know you don’t know everything. A commitment, if you will, to finding someone who knows things you don’t that you can learn from to build the life and business of your dreams.
If you’re not getting the results you want in your life and business, it’s time you seek out someone who’s traveled the road you want to go down and let them show you what it takes to get there faster, easier and cheaper than it took them to traverse it.
When you’re willing to do that, the trajectory of your life changes for the better almost immediately.
Look, you may not like Conor McGregor or even identify with him as an athlete, human being or business person. And that’s okay. You don’t need to in order to take the lessons he’s learned in life and business and apply them to your life and business.
If you’re willing to have an open mind, you’ll see that what’s worked well for him can work well for you to build a life and real estate enterprise that serves you and your family for years to come.
I believe that with all my heart as I’ve done the same thing for myself over the last 20-plus years as a real estate agent, father, son and husband. It’s changed who I am and what I do forever.
It can do the same for you.
