For years I traveled around to different events and speaking to clients, my subscribers, new friends, and colleagues. There were some core questions that kept coming up. Questions about whether you can really get what you want.
They all questioned whether they could really get what they want. It may have sounded different in the particular way they asked it, but that was at the bottom, every time.
It boils down to two things.
For those who are already at the top of their profession or well on their way, there seems to be a lot of unrest around how their success looks. They’re feeling an emptiness and a sense of being unfulfilled by the success they thought would be the key to their happiness.
One woman I talked to about this said she doesn’t want to talk openly about these feelings because it will make her look ungrateful for all the financial success she’s achieved. And yet, the money alone isn’t enough to make her happy.
She bought a bigger house, a new car, she’s taken more trips and thrown more parties. And still, at the end of the day, she wonders if there shouldn’t be something more? She also wonders if she’s done something wrong and missed the key to her happiness. What she really wants to know is if it’s possible to get what you want.
For those on the other side of the fence, on their way to building a business, there’s a huge sense of overwhelm and too many disconnected tasks with no idea where all of them are really going or how it all fits together to become a successful business and a happy life.
I talked to someone this weekend that’s in this place. She’s totally overwhelmed and has so many home study programs there just aren’t enough hours in the week to go through all of them. She’s beginning to wonder if what she’s looking for is in one of those programs and she just hasn’t gotten to that piece yet, or if she has to go through all of them and figure out how they work together.
Yet again, what she really wants to know is if it’s possible to get what you want.
I’ve certainly been there! Have you?
Do you wonder if you can get what you want? I know I did.
That place of overwhelm is probably something you’ve felt at different stages of your business. It may even be a place you frequently find yourself in when it comes to your personal life as well.
The worst part is, these are the same issues I’ve been hearing since the day I started in this business over 16 years ago!
Then another friend of mine mentioned something that Stephen Covey says about making sure when you climb the ladder of success that the ladder is up against the right wall!
Well, that’s a whole different story. But it reminds me of why I created my very first teleseminar series way back when. I did a 6-week course called, “How to Create a Vision for Your Life”. It came after a conversation I had with a really successful speaker who asked me how he would know for sure if what he was doing was really his life purpose-his passion.
I was totally taken aback. He looked like he had everything going for him in the way of outward success, and yet he was confused and unsure of his path. He didn’t really have any excitement around what he was doing anymore, he was just making money. And he was bored.
I couldn’t get our conversation out of my head, and I thought about all the people who were overwhelmed and the others who have the feeling of emptiness after getting to the top. And I realized they were all dealing with the same issues. They were just showing up as different symptoms based on where they were in their lives.
So, if you find yourself in any of these situations, it’s not your fault. You may think you’re doing everything right, but if you don’t have the correct system to follow, you will never end up where you want to go.
At best you’ll climb all the way to the top of your ladder and find out you put it up against the wrong building to start with!
It’s time for you to get what you want.
Every day I see people buying one more tactic, the next magic bullet. They don’t work if you don’t have a clear end to end system you’re applying them in. You can spend all your time learning new pieces, but if don’t have a vision of the whole puzzle, you don’t know where they go.
And you can do all the law of attraction stuff until the cows come home, but if you don’t have clarity around it, it won’t manifest.
Clarity is the key.
Knowing who you are and what you want your life to look like puts you in a position where you can create a business with the sole purpose being to facilitate your lifestyle and contribute to your happiness. And I’m talking about soul fulfillment-not just having a fun day.
Your business is a tool to be used to bring you peace and fulfillment. It shouldn’t be an anchor around your neck dictating how you spend your time, or making you depressed and stressed.
Is it time for you to start looking at your life and business from a different perspective? For 99% of the people reading this, I would say yes. You take a look inside yourself to see if it’s true for you.
I feel for you because I know it’s not easy without the right person showing you the way. I wandered around for a long time myself, looking for the right kind of help.
When it comes to discovering your passion, there are books and courses and workshops you can go to. From there you may be able to figure out what your life purpose is. But as you start to get to the part about turning that into a business, there are only a rare few who can do it well, or quickly, without a coach or mentor.
And when it comes to really creating a blueprint for the life of your dreams that is a step-by-step plan of how you can make it a reality, you need help. I know this because if it’s what you really want and you don’t live like that now, it’s because you don’t know how to get there.
And that’s what I do easily, it’s my gift. I see it so clearly when I talk to people. All it takes is for you to believe it’s possible for someone who knows how to do it to help you. That little opening for something new to show up and asking for help can totally transform your life.
