Be A Level Ten With No Apologies | #TomFerryShow Episode 78
Right before my book launched I hit an interesting crossroads…
I was on the verge of breaking through my glass ceiling and I was definitely outside my comfort zone.
Have you ever been there before?
I was so close, but I set myself up for a little bit of self-sabotage.
I was in my head, and I was scared about what was on the other side of success.
In the middle of all that I called my coach and here’s what she told me….
It’s easy to be complacent and under perform your potential.
It’s easy because this is what everybody does.
You have to be committed to Live, Work, and Play at your best.
So many times we set our standards lower to appease the people around us.
When you start finding success, cynical comments usually follow.
When you land that big listing, most people don’t congratulate your hard work.
They think maybe you found some shortcut or did something underhanded to get it.
Look at the realities of the world we live in…
Most people don’t act at a Level 10 because they fear how everyone else will react around them.
When you disrupt the status quo by being a 10 it affects the people around you.
I’m issuing a challenge:
Are you willing to be a level 10 in all areas of your life with no apologies?
3 Steps To Be A Level 10
1. Stop giving your power away.
Stop apologizing for having goals and dreams.
Stop caring what everyone else thinks about your ambitions and desires to serve others and your family.
2. Be on your path; everyone else is on theirs.
You have to get rid of the mindset that if everyone else isn’t operating at a 10, “they are wrong, and you are right.”
You simply say “I choose to operate up here, I love and respect wherever you choose to operate.”
No judgment; simply love them for who they are.
3. Put on your cape. #SuperYou
Think about putting on that superhero cape!
How would the superhero version of you act?
What time would super you get up in the morning?
How aggressive is super you in sales presentations?
Accept that you are winner, and that you were born to do something special.
You are meant to do something great!
Questions To Think About To Be A Level 10
1. Where have you been less than a Level 10?
With your family, career, spirituality?
This isn’t to beat yourself up, but more to take an assessment on how you can improve.
You are either a Level 10 or you’re not.
2. Get clear on what a Level 10 looks like in each area.
What/Who is the model of living as a 10 in the areas mentioned above for you?
Average you vs. super you.
3. Just pick two areas and attack!
Which area of your life is an anchor?
Think about an area of your life that if you were free of you would dominate other areas.
4. Are you working with a coach?
I worked with a coach to become a Level 10, and coaching can help you reach your full potential.
Remember your strategy matters, and your ability to be a Level 10 absolutely rules!
