Do you make the mistake of meeting a person and immediately make an assumption about them? Do you judge them based on one piece of information, even if you don’t know if what you heard or saw is indicative of the kind of person they are the majority of the time?
Why do people not start with love and trust?
The Alliance leadership believes in loving everybody and starting out immediately trusting people. You will know when we trust you because you will feel it. Until you give us a reason not to trust you, then you will be trusted. Now, you can earn DISTRUST.
We presume that you should be trusted. Most people are introduced to us by somebody that we already know. We trust automatically, but it is up to you to keep that trust. We believe in trusting people from Day One.
We want you to know that we trust you, and we expect your actions to make us continue trusting you based on what you do and not just what you say. When you join The Alliance, we believe you want to be on the team and that you want to be around us. I want people to do what they are supposed to do and expect them to do it when they are supposed to do it.
It’s how we operate using trust and love with people. We don’t make rash judgments coming out of the gate. We don’t judge, we start with love. There are no preconceived notions with us. We believe in people. Part of our mission is to help people change their lives for the better. We love people and we protect those that we love. We think people are worth fighting for and that’s because of the love we have for our team.
If somebody starts messing with one of the people we love, then we are going to fight for them and do our best to protect them. When people we love make a mistake, we are going to let them know it too. We expect people to get results. When you love something, you will do more and go farther than if you didn’t love it. It is like a mother bear protecting a cub.
I don’t have time to love a lot of different things, but what I love I am committed to. I love The Alliance and I’m going to lay it all on the line for this company and the people I love who are part of our team. I am 100 percent committed.
When you believe in what you are doing, you will invest more time, money, energy and emotion into it. When you put your heart into what you are doing, your body follows. When a pole vaulter leaves the ground, they believe with all their heart they will clear the bar. Because of that commitment, their body follows.
Why do people want to NOT love and trust people when they meet them? We don’t like that mentality. I want you to know what it is like to put it on the line and go all out. I want you to be able to say you changed people’s lives for the better. What do you think it feels like to be able to say you gave it 100 percent, put it all out there and gave all you had? If you do that then you will not believe how good you will feel and how much you can accomplish. You can’t maximize you success if you only give 50 or 75 percent. To be your best, you have to give 100 percent. If you do that, life changes and more doors will be opened for you. You heart will be full.
We need to help people understand this and start taking action to give 100 percent in all they do. When you go all out, give all that you can give and get a dream bigger than you thought was possible, watch out! That’s when things will get crazy and you will enjoy more success than you thought was possible. It starts with friendships, love and trust. That’s when you realize how short life is, and that you don’t have time to waste. I live my life like I know I’m dying because that’s the truth. People in that mindset get more done. They are more successful. They don’t sit around.
I have two hands on my watch … the little hand says now and the big hand says right now! That’s how I operate and get more done that most people.
