I went to the MLSP Mastermind retreat in Phoenix, Arizona expecting to leave some garbage behind and break through some mental barriers, as well as hoping to learn the skills to fill in some of the missing pieces of my business. I went in a L1 in MLSP and had some momentum, but I knew there was still something holding me back. The retreat blew away all of my expectations and was a life changing experience for me.
Having a concentrated time with such awesome leaders is invaluable. Hanging out at dinner and between sessions was a great time to get some questions answered as well as just soaking up knowledge. However, for me the biggest takeaway was burning my list of lies. They took us through some exercises to list all of the lies we have been telling ourselves all of our lives. Going through that exercise was extremely difficult and something I would never have spent the time or energy doing on my own. However, having the focused time to walk through my life and see the lies that I have been telling myself, along with others, really opened my eyes to some major barriers that have been holding me back in all parts of my life. I basically have felt that I was not good enough to be successful, that I was a B team player my whole life and I just needed to be happy with mediocrity. What a lie. I no longer believe that and know it’s not true.
We went outside and burned our list of lies and it was super powerful. I knew that was a breakthrough and turning point. But, then we broke an arrow with our necks. I know it sounds weird, but it was the solidification of the breakthrough that made it real. I have the broken arrow above my desk as a constant reminder that I am never going back to those lies.
When I left the retreat, not only did I feel 10 pounds lighter from the mental breakthroughs, but I also left feeling equipped with everything I needed for success marketing wise. I filled up an entire notebook of extremely valuable notes that are priceless. I no longer feel like something is missing and know that there are no longer any places for excuses. It was time to simply go make it happen.
Since the retreat, I have doubled the amount of content I have out there and my leads and signups have increased significantly. I have reached L2 inside of MLSP and am zoning in on L3 and should hit the mark soon.
There is nothing that can hold me back but myself, and now I know that I am worthy of success because I am an A team player all the way and have been equipped with everything I need. The MLSP family keeps me grounded and focused on the task and I am forever grateful for my experience at the weekend retreat. It has played a critical role in my growth and I highly recommend it for any serious marketer who is looking to breakthrough to the next level.
I look forward to going back and being one of the leaders at a retreat weekend in the future and helping others have life changing breakthroughs like mine.
