Make More Money Doing Things You Don’t Know How To Do

NYC Elevate is a million dollar a month, networking community organized to help our members make more money through structured collaboration and referrals.

And this is a true story.

The other day, I was working out with my tennis coach and he proposed a drill to work on one of my weaknesses.

And without waiting a beat, I said ‘I’m not good at that … so I don’t want to practice it.’

And I was only half kidding.

I play tennis pretty well; winning 75% of the 150 matches I play every year, but my ego was really suffering with this one skill, so I really didn’t want to practice it.

How does this apply to Elevate?

Quite often I have conversations with fellow members where they tell me that they would like to be more effective at Elevate and make more money.

And then I ask them if they employ any of the advanced networking tactics that I teach every week and at our Monthly Elevator Accelerator.

Invariably, the answer is no and the ‘why’ is?

Because they aren’t comfortable trying something new and potentially failing.

So they never get better at it and they never make more money.

Back to me and tennis; I decided to work on that skill regardless of the discomfort my ego feels and I’m looking forward to pushing my win percentage up to 80%.

The bottom line: If you work on our advanced networking tactics consistently regardless of your initial discomfort, you’ll not only get better at doing them, I guarantee that you’ll make more money.
