Everyone is looking for the secret or the advantage that will give you that 10x your performance.
Over the last ten years, what I have found to be the absolute most helpful thing I have done for myself and my business is attending destination training’s. This is when I leave my office and I go somewhere for three, five, or even seven days and take myself completely outside of my comfort zone.
I’m not talking about paying a couple hundred bucks in training to go somewhere. I’ve spent between $1,500 to $5,000 every single month for the last 9 to 10 years investing in myself and learning more about my business. I’ve learned how to produce amazing videos, how to speak in front of large rooms, and how to just be better as a business owner.
Now, don’t get me wrong, watching video’s like this one is great! Please watch more free videos when you can but my challenge to you is this: I would encourage you to step it up a notch and go to other trainings. Pay a couple thousand dollars and go to a bigger training that puts you outside of your comfort zone.
A lot of people might tell me,
“Jason, I would rather go on vacation”
That is fine if that’s on your wish list to go on more vacations. But I like to grow my business so I can afford to go on EVEN MORE vacations. When I spend thousands of dollars, I usually make tens of thousands of dollars back. As opposed to when I spend hundreds of dollars, I only make thousands of dollars back.
So how do I justify the cost? It’s really easy. There are three ways that I justify the cost:
#1: Does it Increase my Performance?
I evaluate a program and see if it’s going to increase my performance. if I think it will, then I go.
#2: Masterminding and Networking.
I’ve had the privilege of meeting people from all over the world at many of the programs I’ve been to.
Someone asked me yesterday,
“Jason, how do you get these gigs where you do international events? You have friends all over these countries!”
It’s because I paid to go to these training’s where many international people are hanging out. I have some amazing relationships all because I’ve been to some great programs.
#3: Shift Your Environment.
Use the opportunity to leave your office and to get out of the mindset that just keeps you in the same place. The shift in your environment can do wonderful things for you.
So I encourage you to go and check out some training’s.
