If your first question is “How much will it cost?” YOU ARE NOT READY TO SUCCEED.
In fact, you are giving yourself permission to not only FAIL, but to GIVE UP.
Failure and giving up are two different beasts. I give myself permission to FAIL EPICALLY each and every day as I take chances, roll out programs, jump on calls with strangers, suffer though FB lives, dump money into my business and push the boundaries with unpopular opinions. (this one included).
GIVING UP is not an option. You fail, you learn, you try again. You GIVE UP and you’ve drawn a line in the sand and thrown out to the universe that you are not prepared to do anything differently in order to realize your dreams. GIVING UP is giving yourself permission to go back to something safe, something known, something far less taxing.
When you have a dream, you need to keep walking in that direction. Don’t use money as an excuse to not accomplish something great.
Unless you are juggling bills, in between jobs and figuring out what credit card to squeak another payment onto… using money as a reason NOT to take the next step in your business journey is a real indicator that you are not ready to do things differently, change your mindset and blow past your goals.
When you don’t have skin in the game you aren’t as likely to succeed. It’s that simple.
You need to incur risk by getting involved DIRECTLY in achieving your goals and investing in yourself. When deciding to work with a business coach you need to ask yourself if the investment is enough of a STRETCH so that you will be motivated to seriously commit to doing the WORK and creating REAL AND MEASURABLE results?
Instead of asking “How much will it cost??” try asking yourself the following:
1. Am I getting in my own way?
2. Can I shift my mindset on my own?
3. Can I call myself on my own bullshit?
4. Without being accountable to another person am I committed and motivated to doing the work?
AND drum roll please….
5. Am I getting the results I want doing what I am doing?
