3 Business Lessons from a Taekwondo Black Belt Endurance Test

Aug 01, 2020

Jeremy Williams

My son, Logan, had one of the most physical challenges he has faced in his life last night taking the endurance test for Black Belt at K-Taekwondo. He had one hour to complete the following:
 
  • 60 push-ups
  • 80 sit-ups
  • 80 squats
  • 180 side-to-side jumps
  • 100 roundhouse kicks
  • 200 front snap kicks
  • 60 burpees with 2 snap kicks after each burpee
  • 7 zig zag laps under 57 seconds
  • 100 jumping jacks.  
 
Reading it still amazes me his fortitude to push through the nausea and pain to complete all the above. It is amazing how many lessons in this experience transfer directly into being a successful business owner.
 

Lesson #1 - Embrace the Pain

 
Logan, "Daddy this hurts. My stomach is hurting. I need a minute." Things you don't want to hear as a father, yet in the growth building of this opportunity I had to stay the encourager.
 
There is going to be pain when you're a business owner. Most will choose to run away from the pain and few will...

Getting Rid of the Weeds | Coach Jeremy Williams

Jul 28, 2020

Jeremy Williams

Weeds...I despise them. One of the hardest things to keep up with to maintain our yard and flower beds is keeping the weeds out. This is one of the things I leverage out, and the lucky individuals are my kids. This doesn't mean that I don't have to follow up on their work.

In life and business we have weeds, and I divide weeds into two categories; people and our thoughts.

People can be the weeds in your life that choke you out. They can prevent you from growth and success if you allow them to spread their roots in your soil. They can pervade by spreading their negativity, hate, jealousy, and their desire to not see you truly succeed. If you don't believe the last one, I've personally had people tell me they hope I don't succeed. These individuals will intentionally, and at times unintentionally, plant the seeds that can become invasive in our lives and take us off our game.

What do you do with these individuals? You cut the weeds out. You spray them down with a coating...

How You React to a Situation Matters | Coach Jeremy Williams

Jul 28, 2020

Jeremy Williams

How do you react to a situation? It matters.

Everyday there are going to be things that just don't go the way you intended. That seems to be the case a lot more lately I truly believe because of the pressure cooker environment created by the virus and geopolitical/social issues. In fact this morning, we found out that our June 2021 cruise has now been cancelled. Our family was really looking forward to this 10 day trip that left Galveston for Key West, Grand Turk, Half Moon Cay, and Nassau aboard the Carnival Radiance.

How did I initially react when I found out? Not well. I have to say I was disappointed. The cancellation stirred the emotions of having all the family members of our home celebrating birthdays essentially in quarantine. It got me thinking about my kids' uncertainty with what schooling is going to look like that is supposed to start August 11th. It got me thinking one more disappointment, one more frustration, and what is next.

For every action there is a...

Stretch Your Mind Daily | Coach Jeremy Williams

Jul 28, 2020

Jeremy Williams

What are you doing to stretch your mind every day? One of the things I've personally implemented in my life is attempting to learn one thing that I did not know yesterday. Fortunately access to information is in abundance, and sometimes it is figuring out what is that one new thing I want to learn.

This evening, I made the decision to give up some TV time to watch a live webinar on online lead generation and social media presence. I have to say, I learned a few new things that I was not implementing before. It is a mentality I've been working on over the last decade to be okay not knowing everything, and to approach life and understanding to approach things in curiosity. What I've experienced in this approach is the opening of new doors and opportunities.

Did you know that elephants eat 100 - 200 lbs of plants every day? If you didn't, now you do. Sometimes the information is "useless", yet it might be the answer to the question in Jeopardy that allows me to surpass...

Study What You're Passionate About Growing in Either Business or Life

Jul 15, 2020

Jeremy Williams

Study...I can't tell you how many times this word left my mouth in the last 9 weeks of the school year that were done from home via Zoom. Some of the questions they were asking me, especially my daughter on the topic of math, I was probably not the best source. (This humors me because I was 2 or 3 classes from being a math major.) Study...go learn.

What about us as adult business owners? What about us as people in our 20's, 30's, 40's and beyond on the topic of studying? For our youth we were focused on studying, most of us, so we could make the grades to pass to the next level of education. My question: Why do most people stop studying whether it is for the benefit of growing their business, understanding and maximizing wealth, or even studying to obtain the skill sets to pick up a new instrument or language?

This reality has smacked me right between the eyes over the last couple of weeks. It is in the area building wealth through real estate investment. Now...

Setting Expectations as a Business Owner is Essential | Coach Jeremy Williams

Jul 05, 2020

Jeremy Williams

Setting expectations is essential...
 
It is amazing to me the amount of people that own a business that don't share expectations upfront with their clients/customers. Sharing expectations provides a filter to process future occurrences/obstacles in advance. Having this "newly installed" filter can now be the coping mechanism for when things might not go exactly as planned. To be honest, most things don't go as planned.
 
Example:
 
Scenario: REALTOR® that has listed a property.
 
Expectation Set at Listing Appointment with the Seller:
 
"I call all of my home sellers Mondays between the hours of 10:00 am - 12:00 pm. In this conversation, we will discuss the activity that took place with your home over the weekend including feedback, or potentially the lack of feedback which is in itself feedback. I will discuss with you the current listings and pending that could impact your home, which also might require us to reevaluate pricing if...

Be You | Stop Allowing Others to Tell You What and Who You Need to Be

Jul 02, 2020

Jeremy Williams

Be you...

Over the years I was told, "Jeremy, you're not bringing enough energy. You need to be more excited. You can motivate, encourage, and help more people if you would act in this way." Guess what, it was complete BS, and for those telling me essentially not to be myself, what they don't realize is the number of people that came to thank me for my authentic relationship.

See, authenticity is what people want. They don't want a show. They want to know you truly are passionate about what you do, and that your intention is to add value...not dupe them into believing something through acting out of falsehood. People want to feel like you care about their needs and to be 100% genuine about that feeling.

I write this to encourage you to "Be You" today. I will bet more people will gravitate towards you than away from you. For those that move away, be okay with that too. Unfortunately we are messaged everyday in this world that we have to appeal to everyone. Stop...
