The Ferrari Vs The Tricycle Story by WJ Vincent II
As Told By a Billionaire
Years ago, I had the chance to work briefly with a billionaire. He was in his seventies at the time, and was still building, developing, and growing businesses. While I worked as an independent sales rep in one of those businesses, I had the opportunity to learn directly from him several times, and had 2 private conversations that were both life affirming, and life changing. For fun as we start the new year, here is a little story inspired by one of those conversations…
Who would win, the Ferrari, or the Tricycle?
So let’s get this straight, win what? Details matter don’t they? For example, if it is a race of a few inches, or a few feet…the tricycle would win, because it could move before the Ferrari was even started. Does the type of road or path matter? How about who the drivers are? Many successful people have pointed out over the years, even if you become an amazing person, if you are in the wrong vehicle, success, in particular financial success can still elude you. What if the Ferrari doesn’t have any gas? What if the race is for 1,000 miles?
For simplicity’s sake, let’s say we are talking about a race, that is approximately 26 miles long, the length of a marathon. Cause really, the point of this story is to make an analogy for life, and by most accounts I have seen over the years, Life, if we are lucky enough to live a long one, IS in fact a Marathon. There is of course more to the story, because for a 26 mile race, if the driver of the Ferrari has had no training, no coaching, and no experience driving a Ferrari, they could end up crashing, getting lost, or not finishing the race for a variety of reasons. The tricycle would have a better chance than one might initially think if the driver was an elite athlete, maybe a Guinness World Record Holder in Tricycle Riding, who has a great coach, excellent training, and is in prime health.
That is really the point isn’t it? Having a good vehicle makes a difference, but not nearly as much as proper coaching, knowledge, and development of talent. Of course if you have a better vehicle, AND you have the coaching and training, you become almost unbeatable. The great thing about life is that we get to choose the race. We get to decide what does success look like for us, we can get coaching, learn from someone who is already successful, and get the success we are looking for, much faster than we could trying to figure it out on our own.
Dr. Jay is one of the best coaches in the world today. The training systems, techniques and strategies that he utilizes not only allow people to become professional, high-performance “drivers”, but they teach how to succeed in multiple vehicles, and how to get multiple vehicles racing for and with you.
That billionaire I learned from oh so many years ago now, lived his life by a philosophy he adopted from one of the great theologians of all time John Wesley. That philosophy was:
“Do all the good you can, By all the means you can, In all the ways you can, In all the places you can, At all the times you can, To all the people you can, As long as ever you can.”
I always thought that was a pretty good philosophy…even if you are making your way through life on a tricycle. Thankfully all of us have a chance to pursue success in a “Ferrari” so to speak, and learn from the best in Dr. Jay LaGuardia. Speaking of which, there is an incredible event on January 12th at 7 PM CST…Dr. Jay will be reviewing the 2020 GPS To Success Summit…getting the chance to learn some nuggets from an event we only do once a year that is almost $1,000 to attend sounds like a great opportunity to get Ferrari type knowledge at the Tricycle like price of “FREE”! Keep an eye out in your inbox for details, and we look forward to seeing you there!
