How I Surrounded Myself With People Who Refuse To Let Me Fail

Are you unhappy?

Not feeling fulfilled?

Seeking motivation?

Craving encouragement?

Looking for a change?

Unfortunately, I use to feel like this until I came across an online course that changed it all for me.


Live Your Legend

It’s rare for me to come across an online product or service that I think is worth paying for and that I believe can actually make a difference and deliver on the claims it makes. Although an optimist, I’m also a skeptic when it comes to different products and services offered online, designed and intended to help you. I can’t help but think that it’s probably just someone out to make a quick buck with no real concern or desire to genuinely help those purchasing their product or service.


How I Discovered Live Your Legend & Connect With Anyone

After making a move across country from San Diego to Boston and leaving behind a health and fitness business I built from the ground up and successfully operated for 10 years, I decided that my physical location would never again jeopardize my ability to help and serve others as I had done for the previous 10 years. In my mind there was only one way to make that happen, and that was to take my business online.

After several months of researching, reading, comparing, and deliberating on how and where I should start, I wasn’t getting anywhere. The online world of doing business and serving others was foreign to me. I was clueless of where to begin and didn’t know anyone that was in that space either. Frustrating as you can imagine.

By a stroke of luck, I somehow came across Scott Dinsmore’s website and the Connect With Anyone Course.


An Online Course Like No Other

After discovering Scott’s website, I was immediately interested and intrigued with his message, his views, his ideas, his willingness to share his own stories and experiences. This wasn’t one of many courses I had previously come across where my skepticism was through the roof. There was something different about Scott, his approach, his message, and his willingness to help. His blog posts always contained valuable material, messages, and takeaways.

Before I ever even considering taking the Connect with Anyone course, I developed a strong sense of trust for Scott and what he stood for, what he believed, and how he was helping others to find and do the work that matters to them, that makes them happy, and connecting them with others who shared the same values and beliefs who could help one another.


My Experience With The Course

connect-pre-launch-bannerSigning up and completing the course is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. It was a game changer for me. It helped me identify what I wanted, want I needed to do, and the surroundings I needed to make it happen. It put me in the right environment, with the right people, and the right mindset necessary go after and create real genuine connections. It provided me with a group of other amazing individuals also pursuing their own dreams, goals, and passions.

It provided me with guidance and a highly productive framework to follow, steps to take, and weekly action items all geared towards getting me one step closer to surrounding myself with the right people so that I could begin doing the work that I love.


How It Helped Me

Connect With Anyone helped me realize by making it abundantly clear that our surroundings, our environment, the people who we choose to spend our time with, play a huge role in what we believe and therefore what we achieve. Environment is everything.


“The quickest way to do something you think can’t be done is to spend time around the people already doing it.”

~ Scott Disnmore ~


As I mentioned earlier, I didn’t know anyone personally that was helping and working with people online and therefore no one to ask questions to, lean on, or go to for advise. I had no one to help me take the first step into a world that was unknown to me. Connect With Anyone changed all of that. It wasn’t long before I started connecting with people who were part of the online space I too wanted to become a part of. People who were serving others with their talents and services online, who were making a difference doing work they loved and that mattered to them.

I went from not having a clue where to begin, to being surrounded by people ready and willing to tell me what, where, and when to do it. I went from thinking this new world of helping and serving others online may not be possible or for me, to thinking this world is completely possible and absolutely for me. Amazing what our surrounding can do for us.

My Results

This course did more for me than I can explain in a single blog post but I will do my best to summarize.

I had an idea for an online wellness community I wanted to build but no idea where to even begin.

I started the course and immediately began to connect with others within the member forums who were also out to do work that mattered to them. I finally realized I wasn’t alone and had all the support I would need.

Within this community, I asked questions, shared my ideas and stories, provided insight into other member questions as well as received insight in return from others. Most importantly, I began to create real, genuine connections and friendships.

The course material gave me the confidence and direction I needed in terms of where to direct my energy.

It helped me understand how adding value to the lives of everyone, not just family, friends, and clients, but everyone would pay me back in ways I could never have imagined.

I began connecting with others who I use to think I had no shot at connecting with whose work I admired and respected.

I began to believe in all that was possible and all I could do and create with my new found friends and their encouragement, their guidance, and support.

It led me to create this awesome community we’re all a part of today, The Wellness Bucket.


Additional Insights

Just like anything else, you get what you put into it.

The material, the message, the videos, the modules, the course content, everything is designed to help you meet and connect with others, to make real genuine connections that begin to open up new doors of opportunity that you may never have thought existed.

CWAOut of the 8 Dream Connections I identified early off in the course as part of an action item, I have connected with 5 of them. Not just connecting through Twitter and Facebook either, I’m talking real live in person connections and friendships.

As many of you know, I’m a stronger believe that Impossible is Nothing.


When you surround yourself with the right people, genuine people, those who believe what you believe, who share the same values, who support you, motivate you, encourage you, and simply refuse to let you fail…. Once you find these people, these connections, your tribe, it’s inevitable that you too will begin to think and believe that….
