The WWE released a new DVD chronicling the life and career of Diamond Dallas Page. You may know a few snippets of what he’s gone through, but the production documentary definitely shows off a lot of different angles that you may not have thought about. The documentary is not bad, and I will review it later. Today, since it’s Friday, I’m going to be posting content related to making money online, working from home, and writing tips. With that in mind, I have come up with 5 lessons that you can learn from the Diamond Dallas Page documentary from WWE, “Positively Page”. I was impressed, and here are just 5 lessons that you can learn and take with you in your quest to do ANYTHING in life.
Do The Hard Work
The first major lesson you can pull is simple, do the hard work. Page exemplifies this in everything that the documentary discussed. He started in the club business, learned the ropes, and then went into professional wrestling as a manager. When that was curtailed, he didn’t quit, he decided to go to wrestling school and train to become a professional. The people that discussed Page’s work ethic all stated that he would be the first person in the door and the last one to leave. He had a drive that most others simply didn’t have.
Act Like You’ve Been There Before
One thing that stayed with me in regards to moving upwards in any career path is the confidence that comes from this saying: “Act Like You’ve Been There Before”. I like that notion. Sometimes, in life you’re going to be afraid of taking that next step, timid, with anxiety crippling your progress. Don’t let that stop you, instead take this notion and run with it. It will give you a sense of confidence that others don’t have, which is a great thing moving forward through life and in any career path.
Do Not Let Others Tell You What Is Not Possible
Constantly, Page was told he couldn’t do something. He was told he was too old, too tall, too ugly, and he didn’t listen. He just put his hands on the proverbial plow and kept pushing. He was hustling at all times, trying his best to move forward with creating exactly the life he wanted to live. When things crushed him, he still managed to move up and forward, not letting anyone tell him that something was not possible. He didn’t let them have a say in what he was doing.
Age Is Only A Number
The big thing about Diamond Dallas Page was that he was 35 when he started training to be a wrestler. That is way older than the suggested age for any sport. By 35, many are leave professional sports and going to the offices and other non-professional athletic world. But Page jumped in at 35, with bad knees and all. He still did it, and was able to do so for several years as a result. That’s not to say that you are going to have the same success, but if you feel that your age is limiting, think again, you may be able to get a second win, and work towards a greater good.
Turn Things Into A Positive (Even If It Sucks)
Page had a lot of setbacks. This includes being fired from places, and being told that he wasn’t good enough, as well as getting buried within the WWE. There was so much against the guy, and yet he just kept pushing this notion of positivity. Positive mental attitude across everything, even when he didn’t want to do yoga, he turned it into a mega business. His positivity can seem annoying, but it’s that amped up energy that he has been able to harness whenever life has sent him downward, and that’s the thing to remember above all else.
There you have it, 5 lessons that you can derive from the new DDP documentary and 3 disc set from WWE. Apply these lessons to your business and work ethic and you’ll see a huge jump in your success, the DDP way!
