Have you ever been stuck in a rut, wondering what you’re doing wrong or what you could do better?
You look everywhere for answers — books, blogs, seminars, friends, therapists, coaches, turning over rocks, praying to god, chatting with complete strangers online.
And you just can’t figure out how to get unstuck.
You think to yourself, “whyyyy can’t I get this right?…reach this goal?…make this change?”
It’s a crummy, lonely, desperate feeling. The longer you let it go on, the worse it gets.
So what do you do when it seems like there’s nowhere left to look?
Sometimes the answer’s right in the mirror.
Sometimes the very thing that’s frustrating you most is something you are doing yourself.
Does nobody ever take your advice? Maybe it’s because you’re always ignoring the advice you’re given.
Not landing a job — any job! — even though you’ve told countless recruiters you can do pretty much anything? Maybe it’s because you don’t really know what you want, so they don’t really know why to hire you.
Can’t find clients because nobody wants to invest in your services? Maybe it’s because you’re not investing in yourself or your business for the services you need.
It might sound like I’m blaming you for what’s going wrong, but I’m not.
I’m simply suggesting that you might need to give more of what YOU are not getting.
You might need to look in the mirror to figure out what that is.
No, you won’t always find the answers there. But it’s another place to look — one that’s most often overlooked.
I know this isn’t the easiest advice to accept, but you’ll thank me later.
So why not get started now?
I want to challenge you to identify the ONE biggest point of frustration in your career or business today. Then take a look in the mirror. Can you see where you might need to give more of what you’re not getting?
To your success,
