On this episode of The Wednesday Call podcast, Andy Albright tells people how they can take a crappy beginning and make it a happy ending.
When you are playing craps at a casino, there are rules, odds and luck involved. Now, the luck part is up for debate because there are ways you can sway the odds to be more favorable for you if you know what you are doing.
When you roll the dice, the results are not always what you want. That's why it is called gambling.
Andy has a formula to take a situation and make an innovation.
Define the problem, use limited resources, be willing to fail and be willing to be crazy.
When you are working with the insurance industry, there are a number of variables involved. You have leads, agents, leaders, clients and ambitious leaders. When you are able to define the potential problems you are dealing with, you can better know how to proceed.
We all have limited resources. It could be lack of money, lack of leadership, it could be abundance of "not" smart people. The more we understand this, the faster we can adapt and adjust.
Why do people fear failure so much? When you eliminate your fear of failure, you can take action faster and with more confidence.
Why don't people act crazier? Why don't they operate as if they knew they couldn't fail. Experience comes from trying to do great things. Crazy people get to do more. They take risks. They have a better chance of getting greater results. People will follow people who get results.
Take the steps you need to take to put yourself in position to turn a crappy beginning into a happy ending.
