On this episode of The Wednesday Call podcast, Tim Goad and Paul Roberts served as guest hosts live from AMP Studios at The Alliance’s headquarters while Andy Albright was out of town on business.
Today’s show focused on making connections with people and getting better results as a result of your dreams, habits and mindset.
Do you actively seek to help other people? It matters to people. When you do that, you get rewarded in ways you don’t even realize. Serving others helps you build deeper connections with people.
Do you know your why? What is your burning desire for your life? Are you certain about it? When you know your why, you are more loyal and you know what you are doing and where you are going. What happens when you reach a place of conflict? If you know your calling, you can deal with issues faster and easier.
Your habits create connections. The deeper the connection you have with people, the better results you will enjoy. What habits are you creating? Do you know where to run and when to run? Do you know when it is time to make things happen?
What is your mindset? What does it magnify in your life?
Write it down, speak it to others, actively seek to live what you say and back it up with actions.
Be easy on yourself and others and not so negative. Magnify what is great in you and others. You can find plenty of reasons to beat yourself up and others, but that doesn’t make things better.
Build up people for the things they are doing correctly. Be positive.
Tim Goad shared his “Daily Dozen Habits” to help you grow and improve.
Evaluate where you are
Trade in every other option to get rid of distractions
Get around other successful people
Proclaim and pronounce that this is your dream
Understand there’s going to be opposition from a number of different directions
Focus on your efforts
Seek out every positive person you can find
Go beyond what other people think is wise to commit to
Walk around like you are ready
Look for every possible avenue that will help you reach your dreams and goals
Reach out to every helping hand that has a similar dream to yours to help you reach your dream
Before you can be a great leader, you have to be a great follower. Everybody needs somebody to perform for and with. It takes a team to make a big dream come true.

On this episode of The Wednesday Call podcast, Andy Albright hosted the show live from AMP Studios in Burlington, N.C. inside of The Alliance Headquarters.
The show opened with Andy reminding the audience about all the different contests going on in August with The Alliance.
Last week, Andy talked about the three connections that really do not work. This show is all about the real, true connection that will work when dealing with people. Connection creates connectivity and stickiness.
There are three steps to “TRUE” connection.
Break The Ice (Validation): Feelings. How do you make people feel? Do you value a man who does a “great job?” Do you value a woman who says “glad you are with us?”
Prime The Pump (Empathy): Say. What you said matters. Do you respond with understanding? Do you avoid responding with an evaluation?
Find Common Ground (Wisdom): Reveal. This deals with who you see. Do you concentrate on connecting with people? Arrogance leads to an agenda. Thinking you are right causes a “leading the witness” mentality even when you know you are wrong.
To live a life as a human being you need water, food, oxygen and a few necessary things. If you don’t have them, you cannot live.
When you make connections and enough people keep making connections, then we can make a difference.
On this week’s episode of The Wednesday Call podcast, your host Andy Albright was back live in AMP Studios after spending a few days in Florida last week.
Andy opened the show by talking about all the contests The Alliance has going on in August. He also announced the latest new SEAL Team 20 members for July and the Good Samaritan Bonus winners.
Andy’s main topic on this episode was the four corners of connection or relationships, and how you can focus on the right corner to be your best. When you have a poor connection with people you can’t build the relationship. It’s like having a bad signal on your cell phone. If you are not connected, then it is going to be hard to have a conversation with a person. When people are connected and love each other, it is the most powerful thing in the world.
You can have all the information in the world, but if there is no connection between people then it won’t work. People are designed for work and performance. People were meant to be productive. Your cell phone is the same way. When it is connected and works well, life is good. When you are dealing with people you have to work to make a connection with them to get things done.
When you don’t have a relationship or connection with a person, nothing is going to happen. No action will happen until the connection is right. People are looking for a connection. They are looking to find the power of the other (person). They want to find a strong connection.
Dr. Henry Cloud speaks about “the womb to the tomb.” There are three main problems in making a connection. A lot of times, the lack of connection is because people have less energy, less teamwork, less passion and something is not right.
When you ask a person where they are, they might say ... Right Here! I'm good! What you really are looking to find out is where is their heart, mind and soul ... the internal you. That's what we mean we ask how are you doing? We know you are in a good place or a bad place. Asking this question can change everything for a person. It can help your performance, you growth and your life.
There are four places of human connection. These determine where you are. They determine your success. How do you find people to connect with? You have to work to find people that want to connect. You want to know what is in their mind. The question you are asking is this: “Where are you?” It is as much about you as the person you are trying to get going. You can tell what people are connected when you dig deeper.
There are four places where you need to determine where you are.
First – Disconnect or no connection
Second – Bad Connection – look, feel and sound
Third - Pseudo-Good Connection
Fourth – True Connection
With purpose, passion and a reason there comes connections. You can’t relate to everybody, but you can be a connector for people.
When people are not connected, people get frustrated and hurt.
On this episode of The Wednesday Call podast, guest hosts Jane Hill and Jazmin Lightbourn each shared their personal history, and what led them to The Alliance. Both ladies shared some everyday tips they have learned on their Alliance journey.
Jane explained how you should take CONTROL of your decisions and actions in life, and Jazmin elaborated by saying you should take RESPONSIBILITY for the same. It is wise to know the difference between the things you can control and those you cannot.
Jazmin mentioned 4 books that have made an impact on her growth. Learning how to speak publicly makes a huge difference whether you are speaking one-on-one or to a large group. Body language is also crucial in making people respond to you and trust you in an appointment.
It is important to learn how to mirror your clients, create an open body language, manage your facial expressions, add inflections in your voice and dress successfully. Jane and Jazmin brought several members of the audience forward to illustrate wise examples of dress for both Hot Spots and appointments.
A new contest for the month of August was described at the end of the show, and the prizes associated with it.
