Happy Monday Mindset!🙌
This past Friday was a special one as Tatiana and I celebrated my dear friend Mara’s 70th B Day.🎉
Mara and I met in June 2014.
She lives in south Orange County, but was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
I’ve been taking Brazilian Portuguese private lessons with her every weekend for nearly 10 years.🇧🇷
And unless a very special circumstance or either of us are traveling, we meet every weekend with incredible consistency.
Now she started as my 2nd language teacher behind my mother-in-law. 🙂
And with time, she’s become one of my closest friends in life.
I now consider her my 3rd mom after my dear mother Donna and Mother in Law Cristina nearly 10 years into our relationship.🙏
I feel blessed.
Now to unpack this, there are so many lessons she’s taught me about her language, her culture, and her life packed with 70 years of wisdom.✨
But probably the biggest lesson is the value of relationships in coaching which is the industry I’ve chosen to pursue a career in.💥
Yes, I am a very disciplined guy which has kept me committed.
In fact, one of my superpowers is that I can lock in on a target for an unreasonable amount of time to get the desired result.
However, the truth is that the main reason I keep coming back week in and week out is only partially due to discipline.
The other significant part is driven due to our relationship.
Mara is a beautiful soul coming from a completely different walk of life who I love.🥰
She grew up in another country & continent on the other side of the world 30 years before I made my entrance to planet earth.
She’s an incredible listener.👂
She makes conversation fun.🤗
She’s very thoughtful and compassionate.
She’s very curious.
She knows her craft well.
And best of all, she cares.
In fact, there’s been only 1 time in 10 years she’s needed to cut out of the lesson first. That’s such a cool fact I like to share in that I FEEL her love and support.
This makes lessons with her fly by as I focus on the relationship.🌟
And as a byproduct, I have gained fluency in her beautiful language after years of putting in the work which I have no plans on stopping.
And this my friend, is the takeaway.
Today’s message is for you to pick something that’s meaningful to you in which you want to achieve. Yes, something hard that will both challenge and change you.
This could be fitness, business, or any hobby that catches your fancy.
The more time to master, the better as that will 10x the fullfiment.
Then seek out guidance from someone who’s gone where you want to go.
After all, guides show you the path.
But also know that all guides are not created equal.
So, ensure you mesh well with them. Ensure they are passionate about the subject you are learning as passion transfers.
Ensure you have common ground, and you genuinely like them.
And then focus on the RELATIONSHIP, not just the transaction of learning.🌟
This is where long term consistency and results resid, even when the going gets tough. Trust me, the going will get tough, and you will feel like quitting often.
But when this feeling hits, the RELATIONSHIP will carry you through.
This is what has worked for me and what I teach my team of coaches here in Mission Viejo.👊
This approach has allowed me to accomplish a very challenging goal, and greatly fulfilled my life in the process.
My hope is you achieve the same success and fulfillment in whatever you are after.🔥
And of course, if you ever need help, my team and I are here.
Make it a GREAT week!💪
