Business Breakthrough: What Certificates Do You Have?
by Mike J. Agugliaro
Hey. Mike Agugliaro bringing you another fast track business breakthrough. Yes I am. Today I want to talk about degrees and certifications and qualifications and all this stuff. I want to tell you a story. I’m in a bank and I’m doing some stuff, investing, buying properties all over the world and stuff. Pretty much all over the United States and I’m in the bank. I’m opening up another LLC account. I’m talking to a woman and she’s like oh. I tell her about the business and what I do here. She’s like, “Oh, that’s great.”
Then the next thing that comes out of her mouth is so profound to me, makes such a change, makes me understand things on a whole different level. Here’s what she says to me. She goes, “Oh, what kind of degree do you have? Do you have an MBA?” I’m like, “No.” “Oh, do you have BBA or something?” She says or a Ph-something. I’m like, “No.” She goes, “Oh, do you have a Masters?” She rattles off four things.
I say to her, I say, “No. I don’t have any of those.” I said, “Do you know what I do have?” She says, “What?” I said, “I have the degree of building a 23 million dollar business. That’s my degree.” I told her. That’s my degree. I have a degree in getting results. She just looked like holy, like she’s seen ghosts or something because she was thinking that degrees add to results and delivering my Y.
No, you see you spend, a lot of people spend so much time to get these degrees, they never get results. They never get it. I want you to have a degree in results, a degree in accomplishment, a degree in being outstanding. That’s what I want you to have. See, when you live and you’re not trying to put yourself up against some stupid paper you have on the wall … Look, I say it all the time, I’m pretty sure Dr. Phil is not the greatest guy at what he does on the planet. I’m pretty sure. I’m pretty sure about that. Right?
I’m not so sure Oprah is the greatest person in the whole world, that has changed more lives. I’m not sure about that. I’m not sure Anthony Robbins is the number one best skilled person on the planet. I’m not sure about that because I don’t know everybody so I can’t judge that. I will tell you one thing is that a lot of the greats don’t have the degrees and the degree means that you followed a system or a formula that says do this which a lot of times makes you worse than someone without it.
Because someone without it was not stuck in a box, in a pattern saying follow these step by step. They said let me see where I can go to get around. Now look, I’m not telling you you shouldn’t have some. I needed my electrical license. I got my inspector’s license. I needed those things for … Some was for credibility. I’m not saying that. I’m saying don’t control or get your outcomes based on your certifications you have or you don’t have because here’s the deal. There’s no certification on life that I know of. Do you know of one? Is there a certification on how to be the very best businessman, the very best father, very best husband?
There is not. There’s a lot of information that you can get and knowledge is what? Say it. I’m listening. Knowledge is no. Knowledge is not power. Applied knowledge is power. Today you can get a certification, just read a thousand books. You’ll get a result education there. Right? You read a book a week, you’ll have 52 books in a year. Based on what you need to fix, you’ll be an expert at everything. That’s you certification. Today I hope I’m changing that paradigm a little bit of having to go from oh, you’re an apprentice and master mode and platinum mode and all. No. Your certification, I’m going to give it to you today and it’s going to last the rest of your life. I’m giving you a certification that you’re effing amazing. You’re incredible. You’re incredible. Right now, the way you are.
Okay, next certification. There’s your certification on results. You could get greater results tomorrow than you have today. There’s your next certification. You want more? I’ll tell you what. Hit me up on Facebook. I’ll give you as many certifications you want. Now they’re not going to be in the library or something, right? You may not be able to get a loan with it, but I’ll tell you what. You’ll get results and you’ll get massive wealth, tons of freedom and market domination.
That’s what you’ll get. Hang on, let me write one for you. There you go, grab it. There’s your massive wealth one. There’s your certification of massive freedom. There’s your market domination. I’m Mike Agugliaro wishing you a better than great day. You know what I want for you. I’ve already given you the certification for massive wealth, tons of freedom, market domination. Have a better than great day.
