Step 8: Communicate with a Positive Mental Attitude "Are you attracting individuals toward you?" -- Andy Albright

I am not Selfish
I am not Careless
I am not Lazy
I am not Pessimistic
List all the things opposite of your negatives
I am Service-Minded (Golden Retriever attribute) I am Methodical (Beaver attribute)
I am Decisive (Lion attribute)
I am Enthusiastic (Otter attribute)
Lesson: You best learn who you are from learning who you are not.
On this episode of The Wednesday Call podcast, Andy Albright continues talking about the importance of The 8 Steps to Success. This week's topic is be teachable.
Step 6: Be Teachable
"Are you willing to be dumb enough to learn and
smart enough to achieve?" -- Andy Albright
Moral: Be humble enough to stay thirsty and be arrogant enough to take advantage of opportunity.
Humility - allows us to hear with new ears everyday.
Arrogance - moves us from just making a promise out of belief; to issuing a guarantee to succeed out of desire.
The Secret is to learn to let both humility and arrogance coexist. Just like the flame that burns the candle, the candle feeds the flame.
Are you teachable? Are you helping others become more teachable?
On this episode of The Wednesday Call, Andy Albright brings you part 2 of his take on Listening, one of his 8 Steps. Find out why he thinks listening is so important to being successful.
3 Macro Hearing Reminders
1. Hear with the Intent to Attract (Hear in such a curious way that others seek out to speak to you because of your enthusiastic focus).
2. Hear with the Intent to Validate (Hearing requires the absence of ego. It results in a genuine desire to edify others).
3. Hear with the Intent to Understand (Do not listen with the intent to reply, but rather demonstrate an open heart and mind with the intent to empathize).
1. The Law of Attraction: What you focus on you will attract.
What are you attracting?
"As a man thinketh in his heart so is he." -- Proverbs 23:7
Do you seek abundance?
"Always remember, money is a servant, you are the master." --Bob Proctor
Can you see success?
"Everyone visualizes whether they know it or not. Visualizing is the great secret of success." -- Rhonda Byrne
2). The Law of Validation: emotions heal best when they are first, valued (accepted) and secondly, endorsed
Can you accept another's perspective without judgment?
"We cannot change anyone unless we first learn to accept them." --Carl Jung
Will you acknowledge another's identity without rejection?
"To acknowledge another's truth, you must first not reject your own." --Laurell Hamilton
3). The Law of Understanding: giving everyone the rights you claim for yourself is the true measure of empathy.
Do you consider another's thoughts before expressing your own?
"I do not ask the wounded person how he feels, I myself must become the wounded person." --Walt Whitman
Do you recognize another's feelings before demanding to be understood?
"To perceive is to suffer." --Aristotle
