LAYER CAPABILITIES Layer Capabilities I n order to make your opportunities real, your capabilities need to match your opportunities. Until your capabilities match your opportunities, you won’t reach your opportunities. You will have goals, dreams and desires, but you will be frustrated. Everything you need to do is a constant layering of capabilities. As you build up capabilities you end up reaching your goals. Think of your pursuit of knowledge as picking up capabilities. What you really want in your life is a result. It’s building capabilities that will deliver results for you. When you face roadblocks, remember what my friend Dan Sullivan says: Irritated oysters make pearls. Whatever irritates you in your life, there is BY: JOE POLISH FOUNDER & CREATOR, GENIUSNETWORK.COM something in it that gives you the ability to transform it. Be willing to destroy anything in your life that is not excellent. Most people are unwilling to do that. They will deal with relationships they hate, jobs they dislike, things they are unwilling to let go of, and so on. Wherever your life is working, you have habits and rituals that are making it work. Wherever your life is not working, you have habits and rituals that are making it not work. One of the capabilities in life to develop is that of being your best friend. You treat your best friend well and you take care of them. You don’t force them to do stuff they dislike over and over again. Become your own best friend, no matter what has happened in the past. + Joe Polish is the founder of Genius Network® and GeniusX®, President of Piranha Marketing Inc., and Co-Founder of 10XTalk.com and ILoveMarketing.com, two highly popular free podcasts on iTunes.
