Emotions drive us to do the things we do. Sometimes, they help us achieve our goals, but they can also inhibit us from reaching our full potential. As business owners, our companies direction and future depend on our personal limits and capabilities. For better or for worse, our emotions will affect the well-being of the business.
Today, our guest is Calvin Coyles from Wild Success. He’s one of the speakers for our upcoming Certified Ballers Live show. At 29, he’s already a successful entrepreneur and best-selling author. He’s also an inspirational speaker, helping dozens of companies in the marketing, finance, fitness, and real estate industries around the world.
In this episode, Calvin talks about how to make use of our emotions to our benefit. He touches on The Wild Method that he uses as a guide in achieving “unrealistic” and “unattainable” goals.
The Wild Method (2:58)
- Human beings of different cultures fundamentally want the same things.
- People tend to have problems in one of three areas, the first of which is lack of vision.
- People have goals, but they don’t know how to achieve them.
- The first key pillar of The Wild Method is to help people create a compelling vision.
- SMART (Scientific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, Time-bound) goals help in planning or as a tool. We have to set goals that will help us be capable of making “unrealistic” and “unattainable” goals.
Working on It Until You Own It (6:16)
- Most people think they are trapped emotionally.
- Instead of “faking it until you make it,” grow and develop an anchor and condition into the nervous system qualities you’d like to have.
- Condition yourself not to fall back onto labels.
- Emotions and experiences are transient.
- Success is the ability to get yourself to do things you need to do when you don’t want to do them.
How the Anchoring Experience Helps the Everyday Person (13:48)
- If you’re a business owner who drives your company personally, understanding yourself is the most essential investment you could make.
- If you take extreme ownership, you’re the person responsible for the business at the end of the day.
- In reality, the business is a reflection of the individual.
- Business owners tend to self-sabotage in five ways: with our emotions, behaviours, language, focus, and limiting beliefs or poor value structures.
- If you can anticipate the future, you could work proactively to solve crises.
Why Calvin Does What He Does (19:48)
- Coming from a not so well-off family who’s just going through the motions, Calvin wanted to have more than that.
- He wants to create wellness in his life and also lead by example through helping others do the same.
- The problems and challenges you have today are because you’re trying to figure things out on your own.
- Surround yourself with the brains that can support you and help you learn things you don’t know.
