HELP (if you want it)
Published July 1, 2013
There are people who want to be helped and there are people who don’t. That’s just the way it is. And if you are in the service industry (especially if you’re a coach, mentor or trainer), it’s vitally important that you get that. I’ll say it again:
Not Everyone Wants To Be Helped.
Some people are content wallowing in their own misery and staying put in a life that they don’t really want to live. And there’s nothing wrong with that. Everyone’s different.
It’s a simple fact of life that it’s easier to have an average, boring life devoid of purpose and passion than it is to create a life that’s extraordinary, inspiring and meaningful.
What you need to know is: that there are ENOUGH people who are looking for help. Enough people who want what you have. You just need to help them find you
(it’s called: getting exposure)!
It Takes Courage To Stand Out.
But not just that. It takes commitment and determination. And a lot of (hard) work. You don’t just wake up one morning with a massive goal and a huge purpose and have achieved it the next.
So when you are selling your thing, just remember that it is NOT for everyone. It is for people who get that change is possible, progress CAN be made and the chances of success are much bigger when you have somebody by your side:
*Someone who has already done what you are trying to do
*Someone who believes in you, even and especially on those days when you don’t,
*Someone who acts as your accountability buddy, your cheerleader and your butt kicker all at the same time.
For me as a business mentor it’s like this:
Theoretically, it’s ridiculously cheap to start a business these days. You can literally get away with doing it for free, and many people try.
But what most forget is to actually put a value their own time.
People say to me they want to grow ‘organically’ when really what they say is: ‘hey, I don’t care how much time I spend on this. I’m happy doing the hard yakka for years and years. I just don’t want to spend any money on this.’
If that’s how you really feel, you’re entitled to it. But what I’ve learnt is that to make an impact, it’s vital to create some momentum. And if you’re not getting anywhere fast right now, then you have to change something.
I can only help people who understand that there’s no progress without some form of investment. If you want to make more money, you have to invest into your education and your marketing.
If you want to dramatically improve your results, you have to make some dramatical changes. You CAN do it. You might even be able to figure it all out on your own. But you’re a lot less likely to make it on your own.
If you are serious about your business, you have to invest into it. You have to learn how to create momentum, make the sales and make profit, so you can start delegating, creating leverage and even more exposure with the profit you have made.
Only when your business is profitable, and the profitability becomes sustainable will it start to give you the life that you set out to create…a life that has more freedom, more choice, more meaning and creativity, more alignment, more fun and more passion.
