Challenge #1 - Pre-Deployment Lay Out
Welcome to Challenge #1... Are you ready to get started?
Just like in the military, before any deployment or field problem, we needed to do a Pre-Deployment Lay Out.
You know... Check everything once, and then twice, make sure you have everything and all is in order. This first challenge will ensure you do just that. Before you begin anything worthwhile you need a baseline... A level of preparedness.
First I just want to say... Congrats on being a go-getter and taking one of the first small steps towards being a more educated and prepared veteran.
To be clear you don't need to be a veteran to gain a ton of value from what you will learn in these challenges. We at The Change Your POV Podcast Network are stoked to help and support you along the way.
In other words – welcome to The CYPOV Network!
We’re always on the lookout for folks that are a cut above, you will see that in the incredible guests we bring on to interview across the network... and since you’ve taken the first step in that direction, you too fall into this category.
Look... it is much easier to talk than to do... The fact that you are here right now demonstrates you are not only interested in bettering yourself but willing to do what it takes to make it happen.
You’re about to learn the mindsets and behaviors that set successful people apart from the rest of the pack.
These challenges are designed to stretch you a little... You’re going to be asked to get outside of your comfort zone and start connecting on a deeper level with the most important people in your life, in most cases that will be yourself!
This “Challenge” will literally change the way you see yourself and others around you!
Now... why should you trust us?
We are The Change Your POV Podcast Network and between us, we have over 60 years of combined military experience in the US Army, Marine Corps, and Air Force. We also partnered with a Non-Veteran to ensure we are educated in the mindset of non-veterans and deliver an integrated approach to life outside the military.
Through our individual transitions out of the military, we all learned a lot of things that didn't work, and a lot that did. We noticed that we needed others to fill in the gaps and set us on the right path.
By making some simple changes, accepting help, and learning to be honest with ourselves.... WE MAGICALLY STARTED TO BECOME SUCCESSFUL RECEIVE NEW OPPORTUNITIES, GROW AND DEVELOP!
But it wasn’t “magic” at all.
It was actually simple things we had to learn about ourselves, about others, our environment, and how to view things from a different perspective.
We have attended numerous conferences, read tons of books, and spent years in college studying all that we could about how to do this transition thing better. Then through tons of hours of trial and error applying these varied concepts, we learned that it was not nearly as complicated as most “gurus” made it seem.
We have seen not only what succeeds but also what has failed miserably, so we designed these Challenges to give you the best stuff we've learned in small chunks to help you overcome your anxieties, fears, and misconceptions.
Afterall... Perspective Is The Vantage Point Of Success
That means you are going to learn the absolute best stuff in the least amount of time so you can succeed in the real world.
As you complete these missions over the next several weeks, you’ll definitely start to feel more happy, better equipped, self-aware, and confident. It might not be a dramatic change at first, but as we mentioned before, little steps are the key to big changes over time.
We’re going deep on these challenges, and highly suggest that you take this seriously, by completing all of the exercises each week. It can be tempting to cut corners (you know who you are), but that’s not the way to make the best of this. The real payoff comes when you’re committed to the process.
Over the past several years, we’ve been giving this type of education to an elite few from all over the country both in person and online. As you may know, that type of experience comes at a price.
The first part of this training, however, is free. We’ve never given this stuff away before, and we don’t plan on making this a permanent fixture. What does this mean?... Well, In other words, it won’t be around forever, so get cracking!
Once you’ve completed each challenge be sure to click the “Complete Challenge” button at the bottom to track your progress. This challenge works on the honor system – you are participating because you want to improve your life. We trust you to only mark a challenge as complete after you’ve actually done it 😉
