I’ve always been curious about what causes a person, hopelessly stuck in a rut in any facet of her life, to suddenly break free.
- How do you lose weight after trying every diet and exercise program and nothing works?
- How do you finally nail a financial target after being at the same wealth setpoint for decades?
- How do you get a great team to support you after limping along with so-so talent?
- How do you get a marriage to work after twenty years of brawling?
- How do you kick a long-term addiction?
When I would first fire off questions to those who had broken free, I thought they would reveal some top-secret strategy that only special people could access. Wrong.
I thought maybe a special guru or product might be behind their success. Wrong, again.
I finally found out what it was — after becoming a coach.
It was that their desire for the breakthrough became focused in the direction of what they wanted. They slammed down their foot and said, “Somehow, some way, things are going to change.”
And then what usually got things rolling was focusing on some aspect of their thinking that they hadn’t focused on before.
For instance, I always thought that if I could find a way to tap into a new segment of people who wanted to know more about Law of Attraction, I’d get more sales. My belief was that I had a marketing problem and I needed to solve it.
But when I focused on relaxing my energy around marketing, I’d have record monthly profits with my same list of people that I’d been marketing to for years. It got me thinking that all quantum leaps in business happen because of something you think, not do.
If you want a ginormous shift in growing your business, shift what you’re thinking, not what you’re doing. What you’re doing will automatically shift (with little effort) by refocusing your mindset. I tripled my profits in less than a year by shifting my inner-game strategies!
One of my clients had a huge download of clarity when I told her that her creativity shut down when she thought she “should” do something a specific way. She was thinking that she was just being a resistant business owner and “should” push herself to do things she was told would generate more money.
Another business owner had a breakthrough when I noticed that his judgment of where he thought he “should” be in his finances was the very thing stifling his profits. His homework was to stop putting pressure on himself to market better and to just be easy on himself.
Quantum leaps occur because you actually address the real problem with your business. And I can assure you that every problem in your business is due to the way you think. Every single one.
Every creativity block, profit crisis, system meltdown, and team drama can be healed forever when you decide to refocus in a way that totally empowers you.
May quantum leaps become your norm. Cheers to that!
What’s the inner shift that will allow your quantum leap?
