266: Patrick Allmond: A Man Who Started Believing In Himself And Never Looked Back
Todays guest on Join Up Dots is a man who wants the world to buy into a simple statement “Stop Doing Nothing”
He wants the world to improve their lives and change the situations that they find themselves in.
And as we do everyday on the show, this guy has a wish that he could go back in time and share some great advice with his younger self in High School.
As he says “There are so many life lessons I’d share with myself. But more importantly I’d lay down a good set of ground rules and beliefs to guide me for the next few decades. It is great when you learn how the world is structured. But sometimes it takes too long to figure out.”
Starting his career at the car hire company Hertz, he moved through a series of positions whilst working for the man, with many of them being linked to the development of others.
He thrived as a trainer travelling the world for the software company Serena, but interestingly, and I love this about him, since 1990 he has been developing his own side hustle with his global mission “Stop Doing Nothing” at the same time.
For over 25 years, whilst still working for other people, he has been building his own company that is on a mission to lift people to new levels of happiness and achievement.
Their mission statement: “To work with individuals and help them plan and execute their ideal life so they wake up excited every day. They do this with online training, seminars, one-on-one coaching, and other tools to help us all build our actionable plans of execution.”
So side hustle, talking to your younger self, inspiring the world to work towards their dream lives, let me introduce to you the new host of Join Up Dots!
No, I’m not giving this gig up, but it is with delight that I bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only, Patrick Allmond.
During the episode we discussed such weighty topics such as:
Why he believes that we should all look closely for the moments in our lives when we feel the happiest, and try our best to replicate them again and again.
How if you want a dream to come true, you must still work harder than you have ever done before to make it happen for you.
Why so many of us are surrounded by tiny inconveniences that we don’t realise that they add up to a major reason to take action.
Why we should all build habits into our lives and ensure that those habits help us improve our performances too.
How he remembers the moment that he gained his personal belief in himself and started to change his life.
