Today on the sales life, I got a perfect wave for you to achieve everything that you want to complete in life. If your brain is melting, your bank account is draining. Your waistline is swelling and your excuses are mounting. And one step I'll show you how to get back on track This is the sales life. I'm your host marsh B. And I created the sales life because I believe the number one skill that you need in your life to embrace uncertainty, handle the adversity and never settle again is the ability to sell, but you don't have to be in sales to learn how to sell. I'll take the skills that I've learned in the sales profession, and I'll show you how I've applied these to every area of my life and how you can too. For more on the sales life. Go to marshbuice.com that's M a R S H B U I C E. Stay. you know, sometimes the way can weigh you down. I mean, something sounds right. And it's got you curious, but then when you go seeking advice from someone else, well, their way sounds right too. And yet it's totally D. So who do you believe? And outta confusion you give up before you ever really got started, sound familiar. My friend, Nina Sossamon Pogue is fond of saying. He who chases two rabbits gets none. Understand this. There is no right or wrong. You just need to pick away. just pick away and stay with it. Because even if it's brilliant in conception, you're gonna make adjustments due to enlightenment. You start proving to yourself that, you know, I am stronger. I can handle more. You're gonna develop new capacities because you get stronger. You have a new belief system, and you're gonna adjust along the way because you're gonna be learning as you go on your way. The best decision is to make one. I want you to pick three no more than five things. I call 'em beats that you can live by every single day, these are, your NMW's you're no matter what, regardless of how you feel You pick a time that doesn't get in the way of anything else you got going on. You know, that time it's probably morning time before anybody else gets up before your day even gets started. That is a time that no matter what hell or high water you can hit, it doesn't interfere with anything else. So for instance, if you're trying to get in better shape, here's your five beats and adjust accordingly. Number one, bust a sweat every day, some days you're gonna have five, 10 minutes. Other days you may have an hour bust a sweat every day. Number two, 30 or 45 minutes of weight training. In some days you may have five, 10 minutes in its body, weight exercises. Fine. It's not ideal, but seize the opportunity because some people you talk to, they say, oh, I, I don't do anything, but, but cardio and they look great. Then you talk to other people who do no cardio and they do all weights and they look great. So you're like, which one do I believe? Right. Believe in both. Look, you need a strong body. The cardio is necessary. The strength training is necessary. So commit to both, just pick away. So three days a week, man, I'm all workout three times a week. I'm gonna do. 10, 20, 30 minutes of cardio, whatever, find your minimums. What is that time that you can commit to every single day? Start with 10 minutes. Sometimes, man, you gotta trick your mind and you gotta tell your mind. I'm just, all I gotta do is 10 minutes. And then as you start going. Then you actually increase it. You're like, dude, I'm feeling pretty good today. You raise the bar on those days. The other days you let yourself off the hook, cuz I've already committed to only 10 minutes. Believe me, you're gonna raise the bar as you go along the way. Anyway, number three, the. This is where you gotta know yourself. Some people are super good with process and portion control and all that. If you're good with that fine use portion control for me, I don't use portion control, eat all the foods you want. Marsh just as long as it's clean food and the fifth beat. If you're trying to get in better shape and picking a way is no alcohol before five. And you're gonna find many times that because you hit steps one through four. You don't even want five. You're just ready to go to bed. You're complete. You feel good? You don't wanna give your results away. Good night. See you tomorrow. Cuz I gotta get up at four or five o'clock in the morning. In his book. The power of one more. This is what my future friend ed, mylett calls, standards and goals. The goal is in better. The standards are what it takes to get there. That's your three to five beats that you do every single day. That's gonna get you there. This is where you gotta be specific too. So what is that goal? My standards, my way is in order to be at a certain weight, be at a certain pant size, be at a certain shirt size, pick that be specific, cuz you gotta know what you're shooting for and then head that way. You're gonna make adjustments along the way anyway. So don't worry about the perfect way. If you're trying to get into the creative spot, man, I wanna, I wanna start a podcast. I wanna start a YouTube channel. I wanna start blogging more. What gets you so frustrated every day, you get frustrated out of things that you don't do. So pick away. We'll use the video, for example, in order to have content, you gotta think of content, make it easy. Five days a week, I'm gonna write one page. That's what I committed to one page every single day. Set a minimum. You're gonna find that you're gonna get rolling and your thoughts are gonna get rolling. And the pen seems to be writing itself. It's gonna keep on going, let it roll, but commit to one page five days a week on one legal sheet of paper. That's five minutes. Off what you wrote record a five minute episode, three days a week. I know you wanna do seven days a week. I know there are other people that are killing do pick away. What is it? You can commit to three times a week out that five minute episode now. You got three episodes share snippets on your social. One time a day. I know you wanna do more. Just pick away again. You're gonna raise the bar, but we're building this consistency. So you gotta be average before you become best build your averages in best is on the way. So if you follow this way, It's gonna be three episodes every week. There's four weeks in a month. That gives you 12 episodes. If you chop that down in a five minute episode, you try to get a minimum of two snippets. Every single episode, that's gonna give you 24 snippets every single month. That's nearly 300 for the year. That's a minimum. And I'm telling you it doesn't sound like much. But it's going to feed upon itself. You're going to find more and more and more. Dude. I have 2000 episode ideas I haven't even got to. I don't know if I'll ever get to in my lifetime cuz every day, man, I'm adding to the list, but I just pick a way all of this is happening for you simply because you picked a way you picked away understanding I'm gonna make adjustments, but I can't make adjustments. If I never get started. You gotta constantly tell yourself, man, there's no right or wrong way. It's just a way. And I'm gonna make adjustments. Don't worry about being wrong because sometimes man, wrong is good. Sometimes wrong is necessary because you end up growing through elimination. Because as you're going, you start eliminating what doesn't belong here. What got you here is not gonna take you there. You needed that to get to this point, and then through elimination, you pull it out and say, this doesn't serve me well anymore. You shelf it in order to bring on more and you go higher. You gotta think of yourself as a team owner, a team owner doesn't stay with the same team for decades. They're constantly moving players in and out of the situation. So there was a player that they went with, that they stuck with. They got to a certain point, but even though they love the character of that player, they love everything that he's done. He has served his purpose and that one player sets them up to get three more players. So they trade that player out to get three. And those three players. Develop a new formation of that team that sets them up to become a dynasty. They're constantly moving the chess pieces. This is how you achieve success. This is how you sell your way through life. This is why I'm adamant about you learning the life skills of. Using five ways, communication, curiosity, creativity, continuous learning, and action, and productive confrontation Now you've picked away. You're communicating that with yourself. Curiosity. You're asking questions. You can't be curious by sitting still, you start asking questions as you go along the way you're creative using exactly what you have. Don't worry about everything that you don't have use, what you got. You're gonna earn more along the way. People are going to come into your life and drop things on you that say, you know what? I think you need this and you be like, oh my God, it's gonna happen. I'm telling you. It'll never happen if you don't pick a way. Continuous learning as you go through curiosity and creativity, you're gonna learn more and apply it and then confrontation. You make your feelings, ride the bench and you tell you past to shut the hell up. cause you got a serious future ahead of you. Thanks for being a part of the sales life for more on the sales life.
