We’ve all seen the ads, the courses, the books, the live seminar, the videos and duvet set, ok maybe not the last one, that’s my own goal
We invest our hard-earned cash, go through the course and 12 months later - nadda
Because the guru’s path isn’t your path.
Their energy, their connections, their attitude and everything else is theirs. So their success won’t always be your success.
Years ago I was running a number of networking events and this guy, let’s call him John, came up to me and said he was thinking of joining but wanted me to guarantee that he’d get new clients from joining to which, I replied. “I can invite potential clients to these networking events but, I can’t guarantee you’ll get clients, that is up to you”
Well, that’s what I should have said but I knew John and what I actually said was “John, if you’re a dick then you won’t get any business!”
And that my friends is the key. Not being a dick.
You can buy the best courses, books and everything else including the guru duvet set but, if you’re not bringing the right energy, then you’re wasting your money.
One of the first things I do before I start working with my clients is to tune in to where their energy is. I work out what attitude they’re bringing to the party. If it’s one of lack, fear or any other negative place then if they allow me, I help move them to a better energy, if not then we say goodbye because as corny as it sounds, your success is my success and as all my clients know, I have their back but I also don’t bull shit them.
Let me ask you a question – Have you ever been in a situation where you’ve thought “what the hell is going on?”
Where work isn’t going as planned, maybe the clients aren’t that great, money sucks and altogether it’s a bit of a shit storm.
Well, I’m going to break it too you but your external world is a reflection of your internal world.
Let that last line sink in. It can hurt but the truth can do that. For me when I first heard it, it was a punch in the stomach.
