3 Examples of My Undeserved Success

𝗥𝗲𝗮𝗱 𝗧𝗶𝗺𝗲: 2 minutes

Previously I told you to “make offers every day”.

This commitment will change everything for you.

But I don’t want you to think that the solution to your problems is to go around hard pitching people every day like a creep. When making offers, if it feels like a pitch, you’re doing it wrong.

It should feel like a warm conversation between friends.

And when I say “offers” I don’t necessarily mean getting paid.

There are other forms of value.

Much more valuable ones.

And what holds most people back from starting anything in life is the false belief that they’re not ready yet.

Here are 3 examples of my undeserved success to prove it:

• My first in-person workshop — a health and wellness workshop. I prepared nothing. I had zero reason to believe that a single person would show. But I did have friends. And one of those friends had a regular morning segment at a local radio station. She announced the event that morning, and we ran out of places for people to sit.

• My first online workshop — a workshop on resilience. Well-timed (beginning of pandemic). But I had no reputation, no audience, and no credentials. I was just a carpenter who liked personal development. But I sent personal invitations to a few Facebook friends and 14 people paid to see something I created.

• My first big speaking gig — I applied to speak at a massive online embodiment conference. They didn’t say “no”. But they never got back to me. And I watched as the week-long schedule filled. However, an offhanded comment on one of their Facebook posts landed me a last-minute speaking slot right after Alanis Morrissette.

None of these make for a great rags-to-riches story.

But I can’t think of a better way to build authority in the health and wellness niche.

These might seem lucky or random.

And God only knows how these things really work.

But here’s how I think it works:

When you decide you’re ready, the universe responds.

“Nature loves courage. You make the commitment and nature will respond to that commitment by removing impossible obstacles.” – Terrence McKenna

So if you decide that you’re ready.

And you haven’t already done so, grab a spot on the marketing interview waitlist.

Until next time.

All the best,
Kevin
