2009 Mega Agent Program - Inspiring Music and Story of Billy McLaughlin

If you haven't seen any of the guest speakers at a Mega Agent Camp, you are really missing out.  These strong and passionate individuals will provoke thought and pull at both your heart and your mind.  After listening to these speakers, there is but one single conclusion - "The only thing holding you back is you."

Meet Billy McLaughlinBilly McLaughlin

Billy McLaughlin built a career as an innovative performer and composer who used unorthodox techniques to create a distinct sound.  In 1995, he signed a major record deal.  Over the next few years, he noticed that his skills started to degrade.  By 2000, he was no longer able to perform and lost his record contract, his home, and his family.  In 2001, he was diagnosed as suffering from a neuromuscular disorder called focal dystonia.  In 2006, he decided to re-learn how to play the guitar with his opposite hand.  By 2007, he has resurrected his career and was recording and touring again.

Many People Fail Because They Quit Too Soon

In 2001, Billy McLaughlin taped a fortune cookie saying to the dashboard of his car and, to this day, it remains as a daily source of inspiration.  It read "Many people fail because they quit too soon."  Drawing upon his faith, he taught himself how to pay the guitar with his other hand.  He was determined to succeed.  So, each day he made strides.  As real estate agents, we are often called upon to adjust our business models and re-invent our niche markets.  When you see someone overcome a debilitating disease, it becomes easier to understand that we need to focus on what we need to do succeed as opposed to the fact that we have failed in the past.  He didn't just hope to get better playing with his left hand.  He practiced hard and often.  If you have ever played a musical instrument, you will understand what it took to re-learn the instrument with the other hand.  It boils down to one phrase - sheer willpower to succeed.

AJ - I can't say that it gave me new hope.  I can say that the speakers tugged at my heart and mind and served to recharge the batteries.  Their attitudes, energy and approaches to life were simply contagious.
