I often get asked the question “How did you get started?” so I thought I’d post this video (for those of you who may be interested in my story).
In this video, I also talk about the reason why I started a training company and also how I got started teaching Self-Defence.
Now the reason I’m doing this is because I hope that it will inspire you to follow your dream and turn your passion into your vocation.
I’ll talk about how I had to ignore some of the attitudes and advice of people who were ‘stuck’ in a particular way of thinking.
The short moral of the story is, if you have a dream to start your own self-defence business then do it. The very fact that you have the capacity to dream big means that you also have the capacity too realise that dream. Why else would you have it?
When I dreamt about starting my own business I knew I needed to learn from the best so here are some things that I did that worked for me:
1. Model excellence. In other words, if someone in the sector you want to work in is doing really well, find out what they are doing and model it. Don’t copy it or steal their work but model their processes and you will get similar results.
2. To do that you need to get the right advice from the right people with the right experience who are getting the right results – and you will have to pay for it, so it requires investment in time and money, but investing in the rights person and getting the right advice and guidance can fast track you on the route to success.
3. Don’t do what everyone else does, especially if they are not getting the results you want. Now that sounds like common sense but that is exactly what most people do.
4. And finally, don’t be scared to break the rules!
You only have one life so live it on your terms.
