There is a crisis in the world — one that is not talked about openly. Some would say I’m crazy for even mentioning this.
The world is awash in greed. That’s what the media exploits. And we believe them.
I think the opposite. Too often people are not asking for enough. When I first start coaching people around their goals and desires I’m seeing that they’re asking for a result lower than what they really want.
They don’t believe it’s possible to get what they want, or they think the journey to manifestation is filled with blood, sweat and tears.
People! If you don’t clarify the real goal, make a plan, go after it and fully expect it, how the heck are you going to see major improvements in the quality of your health, relationships, and prosperity? And what about overall peace?
Don’t just say you’re going to write a book. Write a book that transforms lives. Write a bestseller. Write a book that people fall in love with and then buy your products and services. Don’t just write a book because you have a book inside of you. Decide the impact that book will have on you, the readers and your business.
If you knew that you could manifest any result in your business this quarter, what would it be? And if you knew that the unfolding wouldn’t be hell, but joy and expansion, what would you go for?
If this sounds like a Law of Attraction pep talk, it is. But it’s more than that. The process you use to set your intentions and expectations is the same one that delivers your profits.
When I ask people if they want to double their profits they reply, "YES! But I’d be happy with just X amount of dollars". And so goes the process of setting your expectations lower and lower and lower. And your results show it.
Recently I was planning a coaching program I’m launching in the summer. I’d been caught up in the process of the goal, which is very exciting to me, and had not yet sat down to get detailed about my financial outcomes. As I tossed around numbers, I noticed that they weren’t making me jump out of my skin.
The numbers sounded good and they would definitely look nice in my bank account but they weren’t making me say, "YES! Let’s go for this and make it a reality." I asked myself, "What do I really want? What would be the cooler than cool outcome here?" My numbers almost doubled. And the weirder thing was that it seemed easier to go bigger.
Because the lower numbers almost felt like I "tried" to go for something but didn’t hit the mark. It would be anti-climatic, although nice, to generate a lower number as my profit target. But if I didn’t manifest above and beyond what I needed to "get by", I’d have to go out and beat the pavement to generate more sales soon after the program started. That wasn’t enthusing me at all!
I urge you to re-evaluate your financial and business goals this week. Are they clear? Are they a little wimpy? Are they what you really, really, really want?
Have you created a plan to actualize each goal?
Are you "all in", or are you dispassionately sitting on the sideline dabbling in the game? Please share with me below!
Save yourself time, frustration and money. Do it right the first time and set intentions that you are willing to plan for and take action on. It’ll expand your current profit paradigm and you’ll have a heck of a good time implementing each step and celebrating each ‘win’ along the way!
