Sales Wolves Podcast | Episode 149 | The Next 6 Days


Every single thing this year, every single
thing that happened, every success, every failure we we’ve talked about this before
but it was all your fault. But when you look at it, when you look at
it through the lens of happening for you, not to you, then you can use it as a tool
to set yourself up for next year, to be able to use that failure, use that success, use
that missed opportunity, use that situation, use that problem, struggle, obstacle to propel
you. What’s up everybody? Welcome to the Sales Wolves Podcast. As always, I’m your host, Tyler Jack Harris
and I am a Sales Wolf. We’ll start off by saying Merry Christmas. It is Christmas. I hope you’re having an incredible time with
your family. But more importantly, I hope you’re listening
to this podcast. Just kidding, you’re probably not going to
listen to it today. But whenever you listen to this, I hope you
had an awesome Christmas, a happy holiday season. And in the spirit of the season, I wanted
to give you the greatest gift that I could possibly give you. In this episode, this is Episode 149, by the
way, the greatest gift that I can possibly give you is the next six days. So let’s say you’re listening to this on December
25. Let’s say you broke away from the family. Got a few minutes to spend with your old friend
Tyler. And you’ve got six days until 2020. And you can carve out an hour, two hours,
three hours, maybe an hour for a couple of days over the next six days. And that time spent can absolutely make your
next year the best year of your entire life. So what would you do in that hour? What I want you to do is reflect. Reflect on 2019. I want you to reflect on your successes. I want you to reflect on your failures. I want you to really reflect on the things
that you could have done better. On the one or two things that happened this
year that had you gone all in, could have made this year. The one or two things this year, the one or
two opportunities that you missed out on, the one or two lessons that you learned that
you can take in to 2020 and capitalize. And really, this is all about perspective. It’s about changing the way you look at the
things that have happened to you and looking at them as they’ve happened for you. Every single thing this year, every single
thing that happened, every success, every failure, we we’ve talked about this before,
but it was all your fault. But when you look at it, when you look at
it through the lens of happening for you, not to you, then you can use it as a tool
to set yourself up for next year. To be able to use that failure, use that success,
use that missed opportunity, use that situation, use that problem, struggle, obstacle to propel
you. You can use that as a tool that can become
the reason for the success that you have next year. But you can’t do that unless you actually
take some time, carve out some time to truly reflect on it. To put some time into just sitting down and
thinking about it. Maybe journaling about it, maybe whiteboard
it out. Maybe you talk it out loud. Like whatever that process looks like for
you or you feel like you get in the best headspace to reflect, and really think, wherever, whatever
way that you do that the best, the most effective, you need to sit down and do that. Because oftentimes in in this fast paced world
that we live in, it’s so easy, just to man, let’s move forward,. Think forward. Let’s, what’s next? What’s next? Move, move, move and you just push through,
especially the obstacles, especially the failures. I don’t want to think about the failures. I don’t want to think negatively. I get that. But there are lessons within those failures. There are lessons within those successes. There are lessons within every single obstacle
that you had this year. That unless you take the time to reflect on
it, you will you you won’t learn what you needed to learn. You won’t grow where you needed to grow through
those things. They will just be things that have happened
and next year, they’ll be more things that happen and in life is happening to you, not
for you. So over these next six days, or whenever you’re
watching this, how many days that you have left in the year at that point, carve out
some time to sit down and just start jotting down all the different things that happened
this year. And reflect on those things. And how you can use that. What was the lesson that I learned when I
went to that back in January, back in March, back in May? What was what was I supposed to learn through
going that process? Because everything happens for a reason. So what was the reason for that? Like, why did I have to go through that? What was the lesson in that? I promise you there is one. But so oftentimes, we miss the lesson because
we don’t take time to think about what we actually went through. We don’t take time to journal it out and figure
out like, What was I supposed to be learning through that process? Like what was what was the key thing that
I can take out of that situation? And I can use next year, so that when I face
something similar, when I face a new obstacle that smells the same, that looks the same,
that I can come at it from a whole different angle? That I can come up, come at it with a whole
new perspective, because of what I went through last year. I think oftentimes, we just, we’re just walking
through life and tiptoeing through life, and these things just happen to us. And we just keep on pushing forward for the
sake of progress. But true progress is made when you go through
those things, and you grow through those things, because you take the time to reflect and learn
the lessons along the way. And so so much of what we talked about on
this podcast is all about having a sense of urgency and fast is the new big and keep pushing
and do it anyway. But there are times when you just need to
slow down and need to just, you know, sit and think and reflect and learn. Learn and grow. And you can call that slowing down to speed
up. So these last few days, slow down to speed
up. Slow down, so that next year you can run faster. Slow down so that next year, you can go through
those things faster. So that next year, you can solve those problems
quicker. And I truly believe that there will be 1,
2, 3 things that you reflect on that at some point, on one day, next year, you will go
man, I’m so glad that I sat down on December 28 and thought that through and really learned
the lesson that I was supposed to learn from that thing that happened six months prior,
because had I not really thought that through, I would not have gotten through this situation
today. So what’s that going to be for you? I don’t know. But it will be something if you take the time,
and really, really invest in yourself. So with that, guys hope you have an awesome
Christmas. Hope you start 2020 off with a bang. But man take some time, slow down to speed
up. With that guys, this is Episode 149 of the
Sales Wolves Podcast. As always, I’m your host, Tyler Jack Harris
and I am a Sales Wolf.
