As you may know, I recently began a Master Key Coaching Program. Things have been going very well–people are experiencing great results and good things are happening in their lives.
One person in particular, who we will call Mike (not his real name), had a very interesting experience.
Mike is a young fellow in his mid-twenties. He does somewhat OK in life, but he wasn’t hitting any high notes. He’s a fitness trainer, but what he really wants to do is get into TV production.
You see, with Master Key Coaching, a big part of it is getting into what you really want. Sure, we all want more money, more stuff, more this and more that; but one of the keys of success is to whittle that list down to what a person really wants to do.
As the old saying goes, do what you love and the money will follow.
I’ve found that to be true many times.
The problem is that he doesn’t know where to start. He has no experience with production, nor does he have any training. He told James that he frankly didn’t even know if he would like it. But he wanted to give it a shot. If for any other reason, he just wanted to see what it was like and if he could make a living from it.
The Master Key Coach took this information and it sat with him for a few hours. Then he thought about a friend he has who lives in the same area Mike does.
Can you guess what the Coach’s friend does?
Exactly! He’s a guy who makes TV commercials for businesses in the area. He’s a guy in the TV production business.
The Coach called his friend and told him about Mike. He told it like it is: that Mike has no experience, no training, but that he wants to get a feel for it.
“Send him over. I’ll give him a shot,” replies the Coach’s friend.
I’d like to write that Mike is now the head of a major television studio, but it is far too early for that. It’s enough for now that Mike has his foot in the door. Where he takes the opportunity is up to him.
My question to you is this:
What do you think was at work here?
Let me know what you think. Leave a comment. In a few days I will let you know what I think was at work. For now, though, let’s hear your thoughts!
Remember, it’s by talking and sharing that we learn, grow, and, hopefully, succeed.
