3 Things Michael Hyatt Taught Me

— 4 Comments

When it’s time to start something new, it’s always great to have someone to look up to and walk along side. Life is too short to try to figure everything out on our own.

We each need mentors in our lives. I have many mentors I haven’t met yet. Michael Hyatt is one of them.

Last summer it was time for me to start something I had been wanting to do for a long time…it was time to start my blog.

I was listening to Dave Ramsey’s EntreLeadership podcast and heard an interview with Michael Hyatt. I knew at that moment what my next book would be!

mh-speaking-4c-0It was called Platform Get Noticed in a Noisy World. It was a fantastic book that helped me launch this blog.

I have learned many things from Michael over the past year. Here are 3 of them:

1. Just do it

Don’t wait for the perfect moment. The best time to start was yesterday. The second best time to start is today.

You don’t have to wait to be an expert. You don’t have to wait to be a better writer. You don’t have to wait, period. Just start moving.

 

2. Start with WOW

Michael defines a WOW experience as “that feeling you experience when someone or something has exceeded your expectations”.

My goal is to add value to those that read my blog. I know you want to do the same.

We shouldn’t look to see how little we can do and still get by. My goal is always to do everything with excellence.

 

3. Create Content

Similar to most new bloggers, I tend to get too hung up on the stats. I check my stats way too often!

It’s easy to get discouraged at the beginning. You are pouring a lot of time and effort and investing a lot of emotion and energy into your platform.

The key in the beginning is to focus on creating good content.

One of my goals is to write every day (not post, just write something). I also keep an ideas note pad on my iPhone. This helps me keep posts flowing.

 

Michael has become a mentor of mine (through his book, podcast and Platform University) since I began this journey. I have been grateful for the way he teaches and is willing to give of his time.

If you are looking to launch a blog, Michael’s video cast helped me tremendously.

If you are looking to take the next step in your blogging I would suggest you read Platform Get Noticed in a Noisy World and sign up for Platform University.

We all need to look to someone that has success in the areas we want to have success in.

Who are you learning from today?

  1. I LOVE Mike Hyatt!
    His podcast is in my top 5 of ‘must-listen’ each week, and he’s mentoring you!?!? Sweet!

    • Hey AJ, his podcast is in my top 5 as well! When I say he is my mentor, I say that to mean, I allow him to be an authority into my life on these subjects. I allow him through his teaching (Blog, podcast, PlatfromU) to speak into my life.

      He is a mentor of mine even though we haven’t met.

  2. Great lessons learned. I think creating good content on a regular basis is the key to building a successful online platform.
