Have you ever been stuck in a problem?
Maybe you can’t seem to get over that next success hump in your business?
Many of my clients come to me because they can’t seem to breakthrough. They want more clients, more money in the bank and more freedom to control their life. Yet they feel lost and stuck.
As you read through this blog, you will not only find out why this pattern occurs but also what you can do to make a breakthrough for yourself.
I remember back to when I was grinding for months with no coaching income to justify my efforts. I was trying every tactic out there and still made no business progress. The same thoughts would flow through my head.
‘What am I doing wrong?’
‘What else do I need to do?’
‘How the hell do I get this next client?’
Well, let’s be clear.
You can’t solve a problem with the same resources that created the problem in the first place, right?
That would be like a firefighter shooting out flames from the hose to save the house!
You need to inject a new level of thinking. You need to call upon different resources of insight, awareness, passion, excitement or gratitude. Calling upon higher internal recourses within you is the refreshing water to save the out of control fire.
The more you rely on the same resources, the more you will produce the same results over and over again.
How do you pull out different resources within yourself? It may be very simple, but it is truly powerful if you engage with it.
Instead of thinking from where you are now, imagine what life would be like if you ALREADY had achieved your goal.
Close your eyes for a moment and truly imagine what your world would be like if you already had those number of clients, that dollar figure in the bank, that freedom to travel or work from home. Embrace it, see what you would see, hear what you would hear from yourself and others, and feel what you would be feeling in those moments.
As you fully associate with that life, ask yourself:
What emotions am I feeling right now, knowing I’ve already achieved my goal?
What thoughts am I thinking? Where is my attention?
How did I get here? What steps did I take?
What internal convictions and beliefs did I hold?
Who am I?
This is what I call thinking from your future, and you can gain more insight from your future self than any other person you know.
What are your thoughts about your journey, about your clients or even about yourself? How do you view your obstacles now? Are they really stopping you from achievement or are they necessary for growth?
Are you grateful that you went through the hardships? Do you feel determined, strong, resilient, and passionate? Do you have your eyes set on the next big goal?
What did you do in order to reach this goal? Who did you contact? How many prospects did you talk to? How did you talk to them? How did you tweak your offer, delivery, and service?
Were you mostly focused on selling or adding value?
This is how you access different resources within yourself and you can use this for any challenge you come across in your business. It takes a tiny bit of effort to really imagine it, but your unconscious is a powerful tool. We now know that the unconscious brain can’t tell the difference between what’s real and imagined, therefore you can use this skill to impact how it is that you see the world.
Ultimately you get a glimpse of who you are in those moments of achievement.
It’s probably becoming clear to you that the secret to achieving your goals is to gain insight from your future and become that way NOW.
You cannot wait until you achieve before you start thinking and feeling like a success. You must adopt those patterns here in the now in order to drive you to success.
