Note: Hey readers this article is the speech of Dan Henry from youtube, He is Wall Street Journal bestselling author international speaker and eight figure entrepreneur founder of getclients. com.
Here is his Video if are feeling bored to reading this log speech, you watch this it here
So here’s what I want you to do sit down think of a negative situation that you have to fix, maybe you want to do this in the morning maybe you want to do this before you go to bed.
Maybe you do this right before you’re taking action when you’re planning your day when you’re deciding.
Now think and say in six months in a year in two years in five years what will my life look like if i don’t do this, what and this is this is kind of tough but what will i look like what will i feel like ?
if i’m overweight in five years will i not be able to play with my kids?
Will i be dead?
If i’m dead will my wife be crying for me? will she be sitting alone trying to explain to her son why his father is gone ?or will she be running around happy with another man!
What about not having enough money?
whatever it is i know that sounds a little bit tough to swallow but it’s true and we truth is always bitter.
what about not having enough money? what about that what about having a bad relationship with your father?
Think about two years from now five years from now when you’re attending your father’s funeral and you’re thinking to yourself if i would have just made that phone call if i would have.
Just made amends put your because nobody ever thinks of the future they think of right now and most of the time living in the now is a great thing. but if you want the now to matter you have to think about the future think about what will happen and and don’t just think about it smell it taste it feel
It literally be outside at that funeral you smell freshly cut grass you hear the crying and the whimpering of your family off 10 15 feet away you hear the iron from the gears that lower that casket down six feet into the ground cranking.
You hear the wind blowing really be in that moment make it real because if you don’t make it real and you don’t motivate yourself to make that change it will become real.
Let me give you a perfect example i wanted to write a book always wanted to write a book and i had a basic idea of what i wanted to write i had a basic idea of what i was going to do but i never had the motivation to do it.
This was one of the times when i realized how powerful this technique is, russell brunson who is the owner and founder CEO of click funnels, he has this huge conference every year it’s called funnel hacking live big like 5 6 000 people literally the marketing conference right well i never thought i was going to be able to speak because you know
I made millions and millions of dollars i used their software i achieved everything there was to achieve in that world and every year i would never get asked to speak now i didn’t know why
I thought maybe maybe my brand was a little too abrasive for them or i didn’t honestly know but i just thought it was never a possibility.
So i didn’t bother to do certain things like, You know prepare because i always thought if i could speak there i’d give a book away i’d give a free book to everybody,
and that would probably grow my brand and my business so much if i did that because I’ve seen other people do that and it worked really well. I heard stories of people going to all these different conferences giving out a free book and their business just exploding.
So what i did was i delayed i didn’t think about it well one day about 30 well maybe 40 days before the next funnel hacking live russell calls me up and says Dan i’d love you to speak.
I was like this is amazing oh my goodness you know and i’m like i gotta come i gotta do my speech i gotta and i pretty much knew what i was gonna speak about but then i thought wait a minute i thought wait a minute this is the perfect opportunity to do the book thing.
but it was only you know 30 40 days out so i said to russ i said let me ask you a question if i got a book together if or i didn’t even i don’t think i told him that i think i told him that i already had it together but i said you know if i can get them printed in time to make it to the event facility can i give a free copy away on every seat.
He says yeah and of course when he says yeah i go oh my goodness so over the next 30 days i use my circle of focus technique which i’ve talked about in other videos to write that book in 30 days and i wrote that book in 30 days had it edited photo shoot cover.
Everything and it was on seats printed the whole nine yards and from putting that book on every single seat we’ve generated about two million dollars just from that plus blew my brand blew my name up like crazy and that’s this book right here which again 30 days it took to write this the photo shoot everything and it became a wall street journal bestseller
by the way if you want a copy of this book here the download link where you can download from Digital millionaire secrets can grab it now for free and we’ll ship it out to you just pay shipping.
I digress 30 days now you might say Dan what motivate how did you stay motivated to get this done it’s very simple
I close my eyes and i imagine imagine if i go through all this work and i get up on stage and deliver this great speech and i have nothing to give them they just say, Hey Dan that was a great speech have a nice day!
I thought this is my opportunity how many millions of dollars in revenue am i going to miss that on how how much i mean it was the perfect moment it was the perfect moment for this to be released and i thought what would my life be like if i did not take advantage.
After That every day when i woke up man every day i thought about that i thought about that, and at the same time and here’s where in case you get a little too doom and gloom,
because a lot of people they think about they think about the positive right they think about well what my life will be like.
When i have a book and that’s great that’s that’s good that’s a good way to motivate but when you never think about the negative there’s no sense of urgency there’s no true like back against the wall motivation.
Because we all know as human beings when our backs against the wall that’s when we perform the best right there’s been story of mothers lifting cars off of their children because of the adrenaline boost they got so i like to tap into that.
Now i always did think like hey what it’ll be like yeah it’ll be like the other will have my book they’ll love it we’ll have tons of clients come from getting free books six thousand books all giving out the same sure yes absolutely i
Did think about that but ultimately what really drove me to get it done was that sense of urgency that that thing that made me move.
It made me get up two hours early every day it made me you know focused it gave me that motivation to get it done because i could not imagine my life without taking advantage of that opportunity so that is my recommendation to you the next time.
You want to get motivated to do something is think about what your life will be like if you don’t do it taste it feel it smell it close your eyes be there so that you never have to actually be there, be there in your mind so you can avoid down the line being there in real life.
and you can take advantage of the dream that you envisioned i hope you enjoyed this speech and don’t for get subscribe Dan YouTube channel to get more motivational video to stay motivate.
