Biggest Key to Success Today

"Focused activity. 25 years ago this wasn't as big of a problem as it is today. I like the scene in that animated movie 'Up'. Somebody yells, 'squirrel' and all the dogs get distracted and look. With today's technology, you don't have to work 12 to 14 hours per day. Technology helps us but with improper use hinders us."

2)

Biggest mistake

"I look at everything as a learning experience. There have been so many of those. The biggest thing is to document your work. As nice as people are, you still have to put it in writing. E-mail counts. Over five years ago, I was doing business with a guy who cost me a lot of money and got my merchant account shut down."

3)

Counterintuitive

"One thing is shortcuts. People say you've got to follow all the rules. When I heard this concept of modeling it made total sense to me. Back in Taekwondo I would watch these champions that would come into our school and mimic what they did. I was mimicking success.

People said I had to do it on my own and be creative. Since the champion already knew it, I just asked and followed what he was doing."

Overcoming business ignorance

"First you have to get over yourself. Your opinion doesn't matter. I've seen it so many times when people think they have a great idea.

When you start your business it's not all about you. You better surround yourself with what I call a 'Circle of excellence'. Listen to people who have the experience and have achieved the outcomes you desire."

Conventional Myth

“Conventional wisdom is you just work harder and you'll be successful. That's not how it is in today's world."

Circle of Influence versus Circle of Excellence

"Circle of influence is just the people you know and your family. Circle of excellence in contrast is people who have been or are going where you want to go and are further ahead of you. These people are going to hold you accountable.”

David Martin is an internationally recognized speaker, business consultant and performance coach. He combines his experience in elite level coaching, martial arts, sales leadership, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Self-Image Psychology to teach a world championship mindset conditioning to entrepreneurs, business people, athletes and anyone seeking personal breakthroughs in their life.

David began his path of personal development nearly thirty years ago. Enrolling in the martial art of Taekwondo, he learned the physical and mental disciplines that would earn him a gold medal at the US Olympic Festival, as well as other national and international titles.

Upon retiring from competition, David began a career in direct sales and quickly established himself as a leader by developing organizations throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico and Europe. He applied the same principles that he used to become a Gold Medallist to business building. That's when he discovered his love for teaching others extended from the Taekwondo school to the business arena.

Today David Martin travels around the world conducting Performance Workshops. Seminars topics include Mindset Mastery, Sales Mastery, Creating an Empowering Self-Image, Communications, Leadership, Success On Purpose, Breakthrough Limiting Beliefs and more.

Across Europe, the USA, Canada, Latin America and all around the world, David brings his unique combination of entertainment, education and empowerment to those people seeking to recognize that no matter what they think they are…they’re always more than that!

David has this incredible knack and ability to learn multiple languages. And we're not just talking basics or knowing little phrases. He can communicate in other languages at high enough levels to teach seminars to executives, at universities and all over the world in both English and Spanish.

He's friends with Tim Connolly who's done non-credited stunt work and been a body double on the movie 300, Daredevil, the Avengers, Capt. America, Matrix 2 and Matrix 3 and more.

David’s a child of the Bruce Lee era when martial arts started becoming popular in the US. This was the 1960s and 1970s.

He started training in Taekwondo when he was 14. His coach in Binghamton New York at the time was the national team coach and became the US Olympic coach 10 years later when Taekwondo became an Olympic sport.

From this very young age he was training with champions. Haphazardly, he began his mindset and personal development journey unbeknownst to him when he was 14.

He won at the US Olympic Festival. He was a resident athlete at the Olympic training Center. He was team captain of the very first resident team.

Injury

He had a minor injury in 1988 and did not make the Olympic team. He readily admits he could have been ready for the Olympics but didn't do the recovery work necessary. He didn't have the right mindset.

Into direct sales

Next he got into direct sales. Much like Taekwondo, he was fortunate to start in with the best people in that industry. He got to work directly with Jim Rohn for his first three years in the industry.

He then discovered Tony Robbins, Zig Ziglar, Tom Hopkins and continues his education. He loves learning more about self confidence, self image, self-esteem, language and NLP even though he's already a master practitioner. He admits that once he got his master practitioner certification he realized how much was out there that he didn't know.

He owned a Taekwondo school in North Carolina for a while.

Corporate America

He tried the corporate world and lasted about one year. He outsold the other sales team members. But he didn't do it the way they wanted which was to call all of these managers. Many times his friend would know the VP so David would call the VP directly. The VP would introduce David to all the managers so David was getting more business much faster.

The straw that broke the camel's back on this position for David was them changing the compensation plan on business he'd already written. They were going to pay him less.

He lives with his wife and two daughters in New Mexico. He coaches one of his daughter's soccer team.

Some Shareables from David in this episode…

If he had to start over

"Focused activity. 25 years ago this wasn't as big of a problem as it is today. I like the scene in that animated movie 'Up'. Somebody yells, 'squirrel' and all the dogs get distracted and look. I don't respond to every Facebook message within 13 seconds. I don't get on Facebook on my phone. I use my phone for business.

With today's technology, you don't have to work 12 to 14 hours per day. You can get a lot done with focused activity. Technology helps us but with improper use hinders us."

"In Taekwondo we would do our running first thing in the morning. Midmorning we’d do our strength and weight lifting. Early afternoon was kicking, strategy and drills. We’d train about five or six hours and get made fun of by guys who were training eight or 10 hours per day.

When we invited them to train with us they were vomiting and falling out because they couldn't hang. Our training was intensely focused."

Favorite part of your entrepreneur's journey

"That's easy... the people I've met along the way. I've made some of my best friends through Taekwondo. I love people. I've met people all over the world including Spain, Venezuela, Germany, Canada and many other places. Some I've maintained contact with for over 25 years and some I met only briefly. But I've loved that part of the journey."

Weirdest thing

"I was in A Coruna in the northwest part of Spain. Some of my Taekwondo friends lived there. We were all going to do an activity and then take the train back to Madrid on Sunday. I went back to the room to get something and they were all gone when I got back downstairs.

This was pre-cell phone so I couldn't call anybody. Somebody made a comment that my friends who spoke limited English took to mean, 'David's going to stay here at the hotel'. We had already checked out of our room and our stuff was sitting in the concierge area.

I was by myself for 12 hours that day and used it to do a little exploring."

Overcoming business ignorance

"First you have to get over yourself. Your opinion doesn't matter. I've seen it so many times when people think they have a great idea.

When you start your business it's not all about you. You better surround yourself with what I call a 'Circle of excellence'. It's not a circle of influence where your uncle Morey who's worked for the County for 37 years is advising you about starting a business.

I don't mean to discount family members. Are they the right family member with the right experience to be advising you?

What is the person who's advising you ever done in business? Listen to people who have the experience and have achieved the outcomes you desire."

Circle of Influence Vs Circle of Excellence

"Circle of influence is just the people you know and your family. Circle of excellence in contrast is people who have been or are going where you want to go and are further ahead of you. These people are going to hold you accountable.

You may think you have a great idea. A member of your Circle of excellence will scrutinize your idea. They'll ask, ‘Did you consider this? Did you consider that?' They'll share their experience and ask the right questions to keep you from costly mistakes.”

My 16-year-old dad was head of the household

"My dad became the head of his household when he was 16 because my grandpa passed away. He was the eldest of nine children. They used to hunt for food not trophies and racks. If they didn't come home with a squirrel, opossum or deer then they weren't going to eat. Growing up was very tough for him. That was 1940.

I'm the head of my household today. 74 years later it's a lot different.

There are fundamental strategies my dad taught me that are applicable today. But techniques and tactics change."
