Let me let you in on a little secret. Scratch that. This is a BIG secret. The personal development industry is going through a HUGE shakeup. Even the biggest names–the icons, the gurus, the sold-out stadium thought leaders–are scrambling to fill seats, sell programs, and adjust to the new landscape. If things seem harder this year, if what used to work isn’t working, you’re NOT ALONE.
The good news is people are more conscious and careful with their money. I find this very exciting. It’s a fabulous opportunity to raise our game.
Cause honestly, we’re ALL sick of the hard sell. We want AUTHENTICITY. We want GENEROSITY. We want real RELATIONSHIP.
We need to see results. And our trust needs to be earned.
Now more than ever is the time to invest in our education, increase our value, and hold ourselves to a higher standard.
I know this is counter-intuitive, but NOW is the time do whatever it takes to up your game. Get new skills. Make inner shifts. Fail fast and adjust immediately.
That’s what this whole year has been about for me.
My friends get this. And their businesses are soaring. (Aaron’s first program launch made him $30,000 in a week. Bill’s latest launch made him over $200,000. And I already hit six figures by June this year.)
This, by the way, is the power of having like-minded friends and coaches who model success and evolution.
In fact this is why I go to so many live events. (Three in the last two months, three more in the next two months.) And why I’m dragging my apprentices along with me. To stay current. To share secrets. To build community.
Sometimes I learn more from the people attending the event than from the person leading the event…
So let me throw in a little freebie checklist of what you want to do next time YOU attend an event:
1. Make POWERFUL CONNECTIONS with like-minded entrepreneurs and coaches.
2. DEEPEN EXISTING RELATIONSHIPS just by showing up.
3. Get Increased VISIBILITY.
4. Form PARTNERSHIPS with high power players who share your values.
5. See NEW POSSIBILITIES that wouldn’t occur to you on your own. (What are other people doing, and how’s it working?)
6. Get inside access to the NEW LEADERS who are on the CUTTING EDGE of what works NOW.
Ultimately if this year has been hard for you, take heart. The times they are a-changing. And from what I see, the changes are good.
