  • Video TranscriptionRowdy talks to...Andrew Roberts page 8 of 21

    Rowdy:Hi, welcome to Play A Bigger Game! Im in my office today with a mentor of mine Andrew Rob-erts. Andrew is a business coach, hes helped businesses earn hundreds of thousands, millions of dollars and his focus at the moment is helping individuals and businesses understand the value of webinars and how webinars can bring people into their business. Andrews a great friend of mine and hes in town for the day and we thought wed catch up and I thought Id take the op-portunity to ask Andrew his thoughts on, you know. How do you think Andrew, people can play a bigger game?

    Andrew: Yes Rowdy its great to be here and yes we were chatting about this this morning and I constantly come back to this will all of my clients because for me it all has to start with the mindset of the actual entrepreneur or the person that wants to play a bigger game. And the number one thing to play a bigger game stems back to what I believe is belief.

    And if you look at belief, theres three ways to believe. You need to hear about it, you need to see it and then you need to do it. And I think far too many people dont focus on the first step which is actually hearing about it. And in order to hear about it we need to focus on investing in our-selves and educating ourselves with people that have been there before us and actually done it to actually build the belief to give us permission that yes we can do it. And then once we hear about it, we then go and witness some other people doing it and then eventually we do it.

    So yes Rowdy it really stems back, for me, initially with belief.

    Rowdy: Yes, so that mindset. So is that an evolution do you think? So do people just go Im going to commit to this. Or do they grow into it?

    Andrew: Well, its a decision. And I shared a story with Rowdy this morning and Ill share it with your audi-ence, that 10 years ago I was just finished university, I was working in a corporate I think I was on a job that was paying me around about 30 to 40 thousand dollars per year. I had very little savings at that point and I was heavily in debt with the university HECS debts. And I was listen-ing to a guy present and he was up on stage, there was 500 of us in the room, and he was talk-ing about how most peoples biggest asset that they would ever accumulate is their house. And they would save all this money, maybe 50, 100 thousand dollars and theyll invest it into a house. And he basically said that the biggest asset that weve all got is us and how much money do we invest into ourselves? And I remember sitting in the audience and Id never really been taught this, that its so important to invest in ourselves. And he went on to say that if youre your biggest asset, how much money are you spending into yourself?

    So Rowdy I was fortunate at a very early age to make a decision to become comfortable with investing money into myself. And the very very first step that I ever took was I borrowed 25 thou-sand dollars on a 14 percent interest and bought myself a 10 day course to actually work on my mindset, to get me comfortable generating in excess of six figures initially and then eventually in excess of seven figures. And Ive made a decision to never stop investing in me until I get to that

  • level and thats where it all stems. And its a decision and I feel a comfort level of being prepared to invest into yourself and be completely okay with it.

    Rowdy: Yes, I like the way that you draw the parallels of investing and Ive never really thought about that before but we do, when we buy a house we do call it investing. When we do something for our-selves we call it spending and not investing dont we. So that investment that you made has paid off handsomely.

    Andrew: Well I went to this 10 day course and I was scared, like anyone spending that sort of money, g
