In today’s Attainable, Brandon Dawson shares the most impactful advice he’s ever received – advice that continues to guide him both personally and professionally.
The best advice I ever got from my mentors was to be specific, intentional, definitive, and crystal clear about what it is you want to attain. And inside of that picture, the more you can make it about others and their success, the more success you’ll have. And so the advice I got was so clear. There’s an amplification and a magnification impact that results when you take your point of focus and you make it around everyone else’s success, because then they pull you to success.
And that was the clarity I got from my mentors when they said, when you think about what you want your life to look like, ask yourself the question, do you want to be pushing everyone around you? And I think of salespeople. I think of technology companies sending out millions of emails saying try us, try us, try us, try us. That’s kind of pushing at people. I think about retail marketing. Discount, discount, discount. That’s pushing people.
Pulling people is saying, I’m here for a much greater purpose. I’m different than anybody else. And I want to serve you in a way that we can substantively and measurably impact your life and quantify the relationship so that you know it’s the best relationship you could otherwise have. And if I can do that, then I can attain my picture by impacting tens of thousands of independent, private practice business owners who want to attain a higher level of greatness and they need help doing it. That was where I got to with my clarity, my advice, and my picture.
