Andy Albright hosted the last episode of The Wednesday Call podcast for 2017 live from AMP Studios in Burlington, N.C.
The show opened with Andy reminding people about The Alliance’s National Convention in Raleigh, N.C. on Jan. 19-22. The keynote speaker will be John C. Maxwell. Before that event takes place, Albright will be hosting several boot camps in January. He will be in Providence, R.I. on Jan. 2, Dallas, Texas on Jan. 5, Florida (Miami, Tampa, Jacksonville) on Jan. 9 and he will hit Mobile, Ala., New Orleans, La. and Jackson, Miss. on Jan. 10.

One of the show’s topics focused on asking this: what you want to do and what you love doing? Most people are successful because they don’t want to go back to a time that was tough on them. Maybe they were broke or disgusted, so they worked hard to change things for the better.
What do you want and how does it look next year? You need to take time to figure that out now, so you can start taking steps to make it happen. It starts now, not later. What people will you surround yourself around that will help you make it happen? Everything you do matters. The decisions you make will determine where you go from here. Please take a few minutes to map out what you want and how you can make it happen.
Andy recognized people who have qualified for Seal Team 20 and agents who have won Good Samaritan Bonus checks in December.
For The Alliance to grow in a big way, Andy is trying to assemble a group who can achieve 33-10-6-5 to help us grow. The Alliance needs 33 people who can hire 10 quality people who can find six more agents who can make five sales per week. That equation will take The Alliance to 10,000 applications per week. That is the goal that Andy has set for The Alliance moving forward. This all starts with “Doing the Do.” That means selling, recruiting and building.
People let “circumstances” limit their performance. You can’t let “stuff” prevent you from doing what you should be doing. Everybody is dealing with problems, issues and circumstances. The people who are successful still find ways to keep plugging away at the task at hand.
There’s an old story about a donkey in a well. A man was messing with the donkey by throwing shovels of dirt. Instead of sitting there and letting the dirt trap it, the donkey shook the dirt off. When the dirt started covering his feet, he stepped up. Finally, the donkey climbed out of the well. That’s what it takes to be successful. Don’t let “dirt” pile up on you when you can move to make it go away.
Work hard to avoid confusion in what you do, minimize your mistakes and avoid consuming negative information.
On this episode of The Wednesday Call podcast live with Andy Albright, members of The Alliance met at the Omni Hotel in Orlando, Fla. where Andy announced the incentive trip contest in 2017 to let agents win a trip to Hawaii with The Alliance in 2018, recognized Good Samaritan Bonus winners and Seal Team 20 members and a lot more!

Andy Albright hosted this episode of The Wednesday Call Podcast live from AMP Studios in Burlington, N.C. in front a live studio audience to discuss five questions you need to ask yourself every day.
Andy opened the show by reminding people of all the upcoming Boot Camps and events coming up before National Convention later in January of 2017.
Next, The Alliance recognized 51 Good Samaritan Bonus winners and the charities they chose to support. Members of SealTeam20 were also recognized during the show. GSB winners and ST20 members in attendance joined Andy to talk about their recent success.
5 questions to ask yourself every single day
Why am I on the payroll? What exactly have I been hired to accomplish? Why do they pay me money to come to work?
What are my highest value activities? What skills or talents can I magically do or work on to keep getting paid?
What are the key results? What metrics prove my worth?
What can I and ONLY I do that if DONE well, will make a real difference … in my life, in my business and in somebody else’s life?
What is the most valuable use of my time right now?
The Alliance is intensely results oriented. It is about going deep and wide. We get better and better at only a few things. We do few tasks, but we do them well. We focus on the tasks that account for most of your results. Delegate and Eliminate. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe said, “The things that matter most should never be at the mercy of things that matter least.”
Develop good habits and make them your masters. Do it now. Do it now. Do it now. Don’t let what matters least get in the way of what matters most.
Andy Albright hosted this week's episode of The Wednesday Call Podcast live from AMP Studios at The Alliance’s headquarters in Burlington, N.C. to talk about three things to do as we approach the New Year and three things you should never do.
Andy covered all the upcoming cities he will be hosting meetings in this month and also reminded people to make plans for National Convention 2017 in Raleigh, N.C. You can find the full list of meetings at www.NAAHotSpots.com.
Michael Owens and Chadwick Ray joined Andy on the show to talk about Seal Team 20, Good Samaritan Bonus and three things to do and not do in the coming year.
If you want to be broke, then find out what they do and do those things. The common denominator of success is that successful people do things that others are not willing to do.
When you are thinking about three things you should do, rank yourself from 1-10 in the following areas. Are you dreaming, believing and acting in ways to reach your goals?
People that get off track are those who stop dreaming, stop believing and stop PERIOD.
When you know what to DO and DO it, then you will be successful. You can’t stop by just knowing what to do; you must back it up with action. That’s the key.
Dream, believe and act. If you can do those things really well, there’s a great chance that you will be successful.
Is what you are doing, helping you accomplish what you want to achieve? If they are, dynamite! That’s great. If your actions are not moving closer to your goals, then you need to stop doing that. Stop NOW!
What does dreaming do for us? It inspires you to push for the dream. It gets you emotional and excited. When you continue dreaming then you have a shot. If you aren’t dreaming then it is like you are dead.
When Andy was a little boy, he dreamed of being able to do cool experiences and making crazy money. When he turned 27, he realized he couldn’t do that working in textiles. He got mad. That’s when he started dreaming and finding out what he needed to DO to be wildly successful.
Beyond dreaming, believing and acting, it is also important to figure out what your next step should be. When you focus on that 100 percent, then you can start making moves toward your goals and dreams. Doing that can also cover up a lot of mistakes and errors. You can climb out of a hole way faster when you are focused on the next correct action you should make.
Stop wishing! Don’t be the person that always says, “I wish ….” Wishing doesn’t get it done. Doing and taking action gets the desired results. That’s why you have to focus on your dreams, believe in what you are doing and that you are on the right path and take strong action to make it happen.
Andy Albright hosted The Wednesday Call podcast live from The Alliance’s corporate headquarters in advance of this week’s Instant Thunder event.
Albright was joined by a very special guest, Dr. Karockas Watkins, and he talked about reaching the ultimate destiny in life, which is what happens after your life ends. Iron sharpens iron. Watkins told the audience they would leave Instant Thunder on Friday ready to show the world what is possible. Vision always puts you beyond your capacity to produce but never beyond your capacity when you work with others. Without vision, you are blind.
Andy spoke about what The Alliance has been building toward in the last four years and specifically referenced the “playbook.” If you see an apple tree that doesn’t produce apples then something is wrong. We might not know exactly what is wrong, but something is wrong. It might be lack of water, lack of nutrients, lack of sunlight, etc. When we fix the problem and the apples start coming then we have a ripe apple tree. Andy wants you to be a fruit inspector when it comes to deciding who your best person is based on what they are doing.
Proverbs says that without vision, people will perish. We need more people with the right vision so The Alliance can thrive and not perish. Vision will help you with your selection process. It will help you decide where you are going. Andy is about helping people and it doesn’t stop with one person. You have to keep helping people to get everything you want. There is a tomorrow in your future and you need to be excited about that.
You might not have made it yet, but the game isn’t over unless you quit. Success doesn’t happen overnight. If you don’t quit, things will get better with a positive attitude and action. Faith without works is dead, so you have to keep taking action and keep doing.
Andy’s dad used to say that boys with money and no vision are headed for trouble. You have to have the right vision to stay on the right path.
If you can stay focused on your vision in the worst times then you can get where you want to be eventually. You can’t lose faith and you cannot quit.
People who don’t “Do the Do” that they know they need to do are messed up. If they know what to do then they need to do it.
Andy shared the first agents who are on track to be SealTeam 20 members in November. This group of people are actively and successfully “Doing the Do.” We want to celebrate their success and recognize them for setting the right example for The Alliance.
