EP149 Why Having Partners Leads to Greater Success
In this podcast, I evaluate the difference in accountability, momentum and satisfaction when I’m working on something with a partner vs. on my own. Hint: Having a partner is the better way to be.
KC: Welcome to The Business of Life Podcast. My name is Keith Callahan, your host. Yeah. If this is your first time on the show, welcome. Great to have you here and if you’re a returning guest, if you’re here with us each day, welcome back.
A lot of times we get asked, “What can I do to help, Keith? Is there anything I can do to help out with the show?” The answer is yeah and it’s really super simple. If you haven’t yet, just subscribe to the show. So it does two things for us. It allows you to get the podcast updated in your podcast app on a daily basis. Then it also helps us hugely with our rankings within the podcast app.
So whether it’s iTunes or Stitcher or wherever you consume your podcast, it helps us to rank them. So if you haven’t done so yet, go ahead and subscribe. All right. Let’s dive into today’s topic. Today’s topic is about success partners.
I really look at this from – there are so many times in life that if you just have somebody that you – you’re partnered up with, you’re bouncing ideas around with, and it could be a formal partnership. Like, let’s say you went into business. You started a business and you had a partner in that business or you get married, right? You have a partner, a life partner or more of an informal relationship. So I have three guys that I work out with every morning or two other guys, three of us total.
The power of having – so a lot of times, we think about it in terms of like with a – if you look at a marriage or something like that, it’s sort of – like that’s really what it is. It’s a partnership there, a partnership to create a life together or if you were to go in business with somebody else, you create a partnership, right? Or if you were to run a – you know, so you were doing something for one of your kids’ schools or one of your kids’ classes and you did it with another parent. Like, there’s a partnership there.
But what about the different things that you do in life where you could create a partnership, where you guys have mutual benefit, where you’re not doing something directly together? Let me give an example. A perfect example is for me, meeting with those couple of guys each morning to work out, it gives me so much more momentum and so much more energy and so much more consistency with my workouts.
So we’re all going to work out. Like, each of us wants to work out and we could do it alone. We could go to a gym alone. We could work out in our home alone. But having that time where we meet up together, it drastically, drastically increases the enjoyment, the time that I’m working out, the results that I get.
Even if we weren’t working out together, we – like if there are times where we can’t get together, we text each other. Just a little accountability. So looking at success partners in that way, as I was recording – getting ready to record this podcast, I was thinking I’m kind of out here. I kind of do podcasting on my own. I’m kind of a little guy on an island here.
I went through. I did all the research and learned about podcasting, learned how to do it. But I don’t really communicate with anyone on a regular basis about podcasting. So I was thinking that in my business, in this part of my business, I want to get somebody that – we just check in. We check in once a week or once a month and just bouncing ideas off of each other to each ensure that we’re having the success that we want and really holding each other accountable and that stuff.
So yeah, success partner with this and then in my other business in Beachbody, I am always partnering with people and working with other people whenever I’m creating new trainings or whenever I’m focused in on looking for other people to help, like looking for people that are looking to get started as a Beachbody coach. I like to work with others. I like to – and it just holds me accountable. It helps me to – yeah, I guess I don’t have to go into any more detail with that.
But think about the areas in your life where having a partnership with someone else is going to make it more fun, is going to make it more enjoyable, is going to make it easier, is going to increase the results that you’re looking for.
All right. So there you go, success partners. Have a beautiful, beautiful day and we will see you on the next episode. Peace!
KC: Hey, Keith here, and today I have a free gift for you. Listen this free gift is a list of the 12 most influential books that I’ve ever read. These are the books that have helped me to create the mindset, learn the philosophies, learn the skills to really create this big, beautiful, life that we’re living now.
I read a crazy amount of books, I really do. I’ve probably read thousands of books and these are the top 12 books that – they’re the ones that I go to, they’re the ones that I work with over, and over, and over again. They are highlighted, outlined, dog-eared. And I put this list together for you because I want it to be a shortcut.
I don’t want you to have to – you don’t have to go out and read the thousands and thousands of books. These are the 12 that I highly recommend. I have a detailed review for each book, explaining why I recommend them, why I like them, when I worked with them in my life, what part of my life they helped me to improve.
So I put this together for you, and made it super each for you to get this list. All you have to do is send a text to the number 33444 and then in the body of that text, type in “12books” with no space. So that’s the number “12books”. Again, send the text message to the number, address it to 33444 and then type in “12books” as the message and just send that. And that’ll get you setup to receive those top 12 most influential books that have had the biggest impact on my life.
KC: Today’s episode is brought to you by our sister podcast, All About Beachbody Coaching. So All About Beachbody Coaching really allows us to do this podcast without having all those annoying commercials in the beginning for you. So All About Beachbody Coaching, the Beachbody business that Amy and I run, actually funds this podcast.
So yes, it does cost money to run this podcast, we do not charge you anything, we don’t throw in commercials or anything like that, it really is, it’s funded by our business and by our other podcast, All About Beachbody Coaching. And for me, I’m just eternally grateful for this opportunity because it’s allowed me to really create the life that I love to live.
It’s given me the opportunity to do what I want, when I want, with who I want, and even deeper than that, it’s allowed me to help others to create the same for themselves. It’s allowed me to help hundreds of other people become part time or full time Beachbody coaches, to leave that corporate 9 to 5 job and create passive income in their lives.
And really there’s nothing like that. It’s cool when you have success, it’s so much more rewarding when you help others. So I mention this or a few reasons, the first reason is, that’s actually the way that I work with people and mentor people. I don’t do anything outside of Beachbody coaching because I know that it’s such a powerful life changing tool.
So if you’re curious about working with me, interested in working one-on-one, interested in creating the type of life that you wanna live, I suggest swinging over there. The other reason is, even if somebody’s just curious, like you’ve heard about Beachbody, you know there’s a lot of Beachbody coaches out there. Maybe some of them you get a little annoyed with.
It really dives into what this business is really about, which is life transformation. So if you’re just curious, swing over there. And then the other piece is, if you’re really considering becoming a Beachbody coach, I highly, highly recommend you listen to that first.
Alright, much love guys. Again, that is the All About Beachbody Coaching Podcast, our sister podcast.
ANNOUNCER: Thank you for listening to the Business of Life Podcast. Apply what you learned today and you’ll be one step closer to creating the life you love to live.
