…that was my response to one of our team when he announced last week he’d never seen one of my all-time favourite movies.
I’m talking about the 1984 masterpiece The Karate Kid.
A classic underdog film.
I told him he had to go watch the movie ASAP – otherwise, I’d be round at his house (after lockdown of course) to crane kick his ass!
Honestly, there haven’t been many movies that have moulded me more than the Karate Kid.
I remember watching it for the first time and Mr Miyagi’s lessons to Daniel-San were over my head – but now, the movie’s underlying themes are more relevant than ever before.
Let me paint the picture…
A skinny, out-of-shape kid goes against the popular crowd (Cobra Kai), trains in an unorthodox way (thanks to Mr. Miyagi), and levels up his life while winning the girl of his dreams (and kicking the crap out of the town bully!)
Here’s one of Mr Miyagi’s famous lines from the movie:
“Either you karate do ‘yes’ or karate do ‘no.’
You karate do ‘guess so,’ *SQUISH!*”
When Mr Miyagi asks Daniel if he’s ready to learn Karate, his response of ‘I guess so’ seriously bugged Mr Miyagi.
The people who ‘try’ to get in shape will probably fail.
The people who ‘try’ to build an Amazon business will probably fail.
So Daniel ‘trying’ to do Karate wasn’t going to take him too far.
Whatever you truly want in life you MUST attack it 100%.
And the journey to building a successful and profitable Amazon business MUST become part of who you are.
– Becoming mentally focused and understanding that every day is an opportunity for you to get one step closer.
– Making conscious decisions and following a plan that you can stick with indefinitely.
– Doing things with conviction. i.e you’re not half-assing it.
Daniel lacked self-belief and it paralyzed him from taking action – that was until Mr Miyagi came along.
If there’s one thing I’ve realized over the years, it’s that having a mentor is absolutely essential if you want to be successful at anything in life.
People often say they wish they could be a “fly on the wall” when we’re doing our private mentorship or coaching sessions.
It’s something I hear all the time.
And I get it.
My favourite way to learn is when I can watch over the shoulder of someone who’s already an expert.
I love it when I get to see “behind the curtain” into exactly how they are doing it.
So, my team and I were thinking about how we could give you that experience.
Now obviously we can’t do a one-on-one call for everyone, but we’ve come up with something that I think is pretty cool…
This Thursday we’re giving you a backstage pass to join us for an Origin Experience call.
Origin is our personal coaching program where we
‘hand hold’ and walk students through every single step to go from “no business” to “Business Success.”
These Mastermind style calls are the ultimate clarity-creators on how to move the needle in your business.
And on Thursday, I want to give you that very exact experience.
Access to the call is totally free, as our gift to you.
Origin Experience Call Details:
Date: Thursday 28th May
Time: 3pm UK /10am EST
HEADS UP: There will be more people interested in getting access than there are spaces available. So make sure you show up early (just click on the link above to join!)
We’ll do our best to answer any questions you may have on the call too, so make sure to make a note of any you have and bring them to the call.
It’s going to be a blast!
