I want you to think about your parents for just a minute. Did they have any phrases that they would use with you that still show up for you today? Like I had a talk with a friend of mine a while back when we called him Dad is home. My dad had a bunch of these and one of them is, “Can’t never did nothing.”
It always pissed me off.
Today, however, I want to give you a gift. It’s what my dad taught me when I was a little 11-yr old kid. And it’s something I still use today.
I know you’re going to love this show.
(INTRO – AUDIO)
All right, All right, All right!!!
Never did nothing.” That is a Rick Crane-ism, that’s my father.
DAMN – he loved saying that.
And when I was a little kid growing up, I used to hate to hear him say that. And now I think I’ve passed it on to my daughter a little bit because, we have taken the word CAN’T out of our vocabulary in the house. And if anybody says the word CAN’T, then they have to do push ups. So I have my daughter do 3 push-ups if she said CAN’T. Or if anybody says CAN’T, that means even girlfriends or somebody comes to the house. I guess I haven’t made my guests and in-laws do push-ups, but do you get them? You get the idea? Now, my dad would say this to me every time when I was a little kid and I would say, ”I can’t do this.”
Now, yesterday I shared a strategy on greatness quest. If you didn’t check out the episode yesterday, I think you should because I thought it was awesome. I talked about how my dad, I wrote a letter of appreciation to my father about, about how he made a difference in my life. And I learned a lot of things from my father but not the least of which was this strategy I’m about to give you. And I think this is a strategy you can use.
There’s a little formula that I put here and you’re going to find the SAY IT, SEE IT, FEEL IT formula. And I was able to double my results when I was 11 years old using the strategy. And I didn’t believe I could. I was very scared. I was very skeptical. And I didn’t know how to do this, but my dad gave me the formula I’m about to give you.
He doesn’t even remember actually giving me the formula. He laughs about it and like, I don’t even remember saying that, but I have found that this has really served me well. I still teach it to my clients. I should talk about it all the time. I’ve written about it in my book. I’m about to give it to you now so that you can apply it. And let me give it to you in the context of the story that, that, that came up when this happened to me the first time.
So I was 11 years old, I wanted to do pull-ups. I didn’t want to do to pull-ups. There was a test at school and it was how many, it was a physical fitness test. And I wanted to make sure I didn’t look stupid in front of all my friends and some of my friends had done 10 pull-ups. Now this meant a lot to me to not look stupid in front of my friends. And then I’ll have them be stronger than me and that was important. It was really, you know, whatever. That was interesting and most important to me.
So much of my father, who really couldn’t have given a crap about all this stuff. I can’t say that he was always the most patient and always wanted to listen. But in this case he totally, he always believed in me and believed I could do anything. So he said, “All right.”
He was in the middle of shooting a horse and I still remember to this day like it was yesterday. It was smoking hot in Arizona, which is what tends to be a scorchingly hot. He’s bending down underneath the horse and I’m telling him about my problems like that. “And Trevor just hold on, I don’t understand. What do you want?” And I said, “Dad, all the kids at school did 10 pull-ups and I want to be able to do it too.” And I say all, it was 2 kids, it was a Mike Powell and Scott Simonton. And they each had done 10 pull- ups. And he’s like, “What do you want to do?” And I said, “Well, I want to do 11 pull-ups. I want to be better than them.” And so he’s like, “Well, how many can you do?” And so I’m like, “I’m not sure.”
Here’s a question for you:
Have you ever wanted something… REALLY badly… but just been too scared to take any action to try to get it?
I know that I have.
This wasn’t the first time and it wasn’t the last that I might strive for something more, something, desire something.
And then when it comes down to it, I’d never even had the courage to jump up on that pull-up bar and give it a, give it a whirl. I was scared to even know, but my dad asks me. So I went in and I did and I jumped on the pull-up bar and I did 5 pull-ups. And I came back crestfallen because I would have thought I could have done more than 5.
Now, I was really upset and absolutely convinced that this was an impossible task. And so instead, I went ahead and my dad gave me the strategy. So he said, “Trevor, how many pull-ups did you do?” And I said, “Dad, five.” And I was so upset. He said, “All right, no problem.” He goes, “Trevor, I got, I got a strategy for you. This is going to be no problem because like, when, when do you have to do the pull-up?” And I’m like, “I’m not sure on the next couple of days, as soon as we have PE class again.” And he’s like, “Trevor, here’s what I want you to do.”
And by the way, I’m giving you guys the challenge right now. So if you’re listening to me, I’m telling you to do this. So figure out of something that you want, you know, something like, I’m doing a 30-day challenge right now. So I would challenge you to do a 30-day challenge, to pick some one thing that you want really bad and then commit yourself like a daily discipline of doing this strategy. And I almost fricking guarantee you that is gonna help you get better results.
OK, I do guarantee you. I’ll give you a money-back guarantee on my 30-day challenge. If you join me, shoot me a message and say, this shit didn’t work for you and I’ll send you a hundred bucks. How about them apples? I bet you a hundred bucks that this will work for you and you’ll be able to get better results if you use this every day.
All right, so here it is. He said, “Trevor, I want you to see yourself doing 11 pull-ups. I want you to become obsessed with this. I want you to think about it all the time. I want you to visualize yourself.”
Actually, hold on. Did he say that? He said… No it’s the SAY IT, SEE IT, FEEL IT formula. I think he said, “Trevor, I want you to SAY…” where you do the say part first. He said, “Trevor, I want you to SAY I can do 11 pull-ups. And I said it really pleasant, you know, “I’m going to do 11 pull-ups.” I was really, you know, obnoxious little kid. And instead he’s like “Trevor, SAY IT loud with conviction, like I can do 11 pull-ups.” and he’s like, “Well, my challenge for you is to SAY that a million times a day, a thousand times a day. I want you to SAY IT when you wake up, I want you to dream about it. I want you to to to SAY IT when you’re making your, when you’re eating lunch, I’m going to say, SAY IT to yourself when you’re brushing your teeth, I want you to SAY over and over again, I can do 11 pull-ups. I can do 11 pull-ups. I can do 11 pull-ups.”
And it just became my mantra and I’m like, “All right, Dad, I will.” And then he’s like, “I want you to do the second. I want you to SEE IT. I want you to SEE yourself actually doing it. I want you to imagine yourself on the bar when you would SEE yourself pulling yourself up and doing 11 pull-ups. I want you to imagine all 11 and I want you to, I want you to SEE yourself actually doing it and seeing all the kids around you, watching you doing whatever that looks like in a PE class. You’re willing to do that?”
I was like, “Yeah”, and he’s like, “OK, there’s a third part. The third part is I want you to FEEL IT. I want you to FEEL how good it’s going to FEEL once it’s all done. How, how awesome it’s going to be once you’ve done 11 pull-ups. And whatever it is that you want to FEEL, I want you to start experiencing that now. I want you to dream about it and that’s all you gotta do.” SAY IT, SEE IT, FEEL IT formula.
He didn’t actually say it like that. He didn’t give it to me in a formula. My Dad wasn’t a motivational trainer or anything. He was just this guy, this horseshoer that’s a can’t never did nothing. And he was just trying to get me out of this damn hair and he’s like, “Don’t tell me you can’t do something.”
I love that movie with Will Smith, “The Pursuit of Happyness”. You haven’t seen that? Oh my God, I’m sure you’ve seen that. You haven’t seen it? Go watch it again. I’m actually gonna, I’m gonna go watch it again and take my own suggestion here because I think it’s awesome. I could share it with my daughter. Oh my God. That’s so cool. She’s 10 right now. She’ll be 11 soon. Maybe we’ll watch a movie tonight.
All right, so it’s the Say it, see it formula, SAY IT, SEE IT, FEEL IT formula. Now, what I did was for the next couple of days, I started saying, seeing and feeling it all the time. I dreamt about and talked about it.
I just, I use this strategy. I did it every day, did it a million times. I got so confident. I started telling my friends that I could do 11 pull-ups and just watch me because I’m going to do 11 pull-ups. That’s how cocky and confident I was getting. But I started to just believe that it was possible.
So when I jumped up onto the bar to do these pull-ups, and I went through 1 to 5 really fast and I was blown wide. Like, this is awesome. I did 6, I did 7. It was getting harder. By the time I got to 8, 9, 10. Like I could barely do the 10th pull-up. I got up on the tenth and I was hanging there on the bar and I gave it everything I had. I was pulling just as strong as far as I could. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw the PE instructor write down on this clipboard that I’d done 10 pull-ups.
And I was still hanging from the bar because see, I believed I could do 11 pull ups and so I pulled with all my might and I basically sit on that bar until they asked me to get off until I fell off the bar. He’s like, “Trevor, you’re done.” And I was like, “No, I’m not.” Like I didn’t, I couldn’t actually speak. I was like, I can do 11 pull-ups. And I was crestfallen. I was really upset that I didn’t do it, but I did 10. I doubled my performance.
But what had happened when I started that strategy is I didn’t give up. But that was like in just 2 or 3 days. I was a little from 5 pull-ups to 10 with none, I didn’t practice once. My dad said, I said, “Dad, should I do chair practice? Should I go in and do pull ups?” No, no, no, you don’t need to do that. Just say it, see it, feel it and get out of here.”
And so that’s what I did. And so from then, for the next 30 days, I kept up my practice and I thought, this is kind of cool. I wondered how many pull ups I can do within 30 days. I did 20 pull ups at one shot, I was 11 years old.
And I’ve shared this strategy with a lot of people and they’ve been able to accomplish amazing things. And this is the thing you need to become obsessed with your goal. And Tony Robbins teaches something called a triad that actually falls into the same category of these three things that I didn’t learn until years later.
