It’s a conversation you need to have that you’re avoiding…
It’s a thing you want to do, that you’ve talked yourself out of doing..
It’s not knowing what to do next, yet, being too ________________ <insert> Stubborn, Proud, Arrogant, Embarrassed, Stupid, Busy, to ASK for help.
Because SECRETLY you’re PUTTING WAY TOO much pressure on yourself to ALREADY KNOW.
Which is really silly when you think about it.
The Definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result.
If you don’t BREAK the pattern, and have a BREAKTHROUGH you will keep getting what you’ve got.
That means, you have to CUT a new PATH. And that means being in BEGINNERS MIND.
The problem is because you are so COMPETENT in your current SITUATION, you AVOID feeling INCOMPETENT.
The reason you AVOID feeling INCOMPETENT is because it’s AWKWARD.
It’s AWKWARD because you EXPECT yourself TO NEVER EVER FEEL AWKWARD and to ALWAYS have your SH*T together.
This THINKING is FLAWED. And if this is the #1 thing STOPPING you from growing.
From gleaning a new skill. From learning a new way. From cutting a new path. From growing yourself, your business, your relationships, your team, your revenue, your profits, whatever it is that you WANT TO GROW.
You are AFRAID of being INCOMPETENT because you consider it FAILURE.
So, here’s a reframe for you. If you FAIL to feel AWKWARD you have FAILED.
Feeling AWKWARD is the #1 BEST WAY to accomplish SUCCESS.
Every MASTER was once a DISASTER (I heard T.Harv Eker say this) and it’s true.
Therefore, I encourage you to FEEL awkward. To love feeling awkward, and truth be known? Once you’ve done something once, you begin to stop feeling awkward.
Why? Because it’s not new anymore.
My team and I felt SUPER Awkward and I felt VERY Awkward when I filmed all the video’s I had to film to create our online program The Influential Leader Online. It was super uncomfortable… NOT having notes. NOT having a teleprompter. NOT having faces to speak to. IT felt WEIRD and I felt AWKWARD.
To get over that, I had to think about YOU. My client. My customer. My community member.
I had to think about how this material helps you grow your business and grow yourself.
I had to GET OVER MY AWKWARDNESS to help you. And this is exactly the point.
WE get in our own way.
WE STOP ourselves from HELPING OTHERS when we OBSESS about feeling awkward.
In a world that obsesses about PERFECT Instagram pics? Obsess about being AWKWARD and watch what happens.
My clients love the content. I get rave reviews. Why? Because after they come to my live event, or after they have sessions with my team, they have material to reflect on and they get to carry me in their pocket.
They get to grow their company. They get to grow themselves. And, I get to grow.
All because we got over our stupid awkwardness. Make sense?
