Let's face it; it is easier to stay in our comfort zones than to push ourselves to become the people we truly achieve to be.
I had the honor of speaking with Chuck Norris' long time business manager and friend, Dr. Reggie Cochran, this past week in Las Vegas, and he shared several key "kicking points" for people's "sticking points".
1. Appreciate your past...and keep moving forward
Chuck Norris weighed less than 4 lbs. when he was born. He endured a tough upbringing...yet he has achieved an legendary reputation for being an international hero, who refuses to give up.
What limiting stories are you telling yourself? How do you protect yourself from negativity?
How quickly can you detach yourself from those stories?
2. Train, Train, Train.
The late Vince Lombardi said, "Practice does not make perfect...Perfect practice makes perfect."
Chuck and Reggie are obviously amazing martial artists.
One thing that I learned when training for my black belt in Kuk Sool Won was the importance of the little details, and how they create a WOW factor.
(I was blessed to work with one of the top instructors in the world, Master Jeff Green, who would frequently watch us execute a perfect form, then would say, "Awesome! Again...Again...Again..." Repetition is crucial to your success.
3. Be Consistent
You are a brand.
Regardless of if you own your own business, are a stay at home parent, or are a doting spouse; your brand must remain true to your values.
Chuck Norris is flooded with requests for endorsements, partnerships, and opportunities. Most of them he declines. If something is not a cohesive fit for you and/or your brand...don't split your focus and your effectiveness.
What kicking points do you use to move from your sticking points?
