I want to talk to you about working hard in your business, but not getting anywhere. Is that you? Are you doing all the right things? Are you doing what everyone tells you that you’re supposed to be doing, but you’re still not growing your business, not earning the money, serving as many people as you would like or hope to in this stage of your business? If the answer is yes, then I want to share with you a few things today to give some ideas around why this is happening for you.

The first thing is, I want to give you a little analogy. If someone said to you, jump off the building and start flapping your arms and you’ll be able to fly. You get up on the building and you jump off and you go, “Okay, this is going to work in my business. I’m going to try this. I’m all in. I’m giving it my all.” You jump off and you stop flapping. You don’t soar off into the clouds, you start skyrocketing to the ground. Then someone says, “Oh no! You’ve just got to flap harder! You’ve just got to do more!” It doesn’t matter how much you flap your arms, you are never going to fly.

Have you felt like that when you bought a program or bought a marketing strategy or social media strategy? And they go, “You’ve just got to do more! You’ve just got to do more!” Is that what you’re doing in your business, working harder and harder; you keep flapping your arms, knowing full well that you’re plummeting down.

Well, I’ve been there and most of my clients have been there as well. What I wanted to share with you today is, if you’re practicing imperfect, you are going to be imperfect. I know a lot of people don’t like to use the word perfect. But if you’re practicing something like flapping your arms, it doesn’t matter how good you get at flapping your arms, you’re still going to catapult down. What I’m suggesting to you is, make sure that you’re practicing perfect. Practice what is going to work that does work, that’s proven, that you know for sure is going to work.

When you jump off that building and start flapping your arms, you’re not real sure. What is it that gives you the surety that it’s going to work? Well, then you need to find a program or a group or a mastermind where it’s longer term. If you’re just going to go and buy what looks like the easy fix – “Here it is, just do this and you’ll fly, you’ll soar into the clouds.” No, this is a long game. If you’re thinking you’re just going to get that overnight success, it is not going to happen.

Join an organisation or a group or a program that is longer term where that accountability is there long-term. In my SMJ Master Coach Program, I’m there every day, every week, every fortnight, every month, every year for my Master Coaches, where we are moving forward with the changing environment, we’re changing up technology all of the time, it moves very fast. I don’t sell just a program where I go “Here it is, take it, leave it and you’re on your own.”

With my Master Coach Program, we work together long-term, building your business, changing, moving forward, adding new strategies into your business longer term. You’re meeting up with me regularly, knowing that I just haven’t sold you overnight success in a box. If you’re sitting out there on your own and going, “I bought this program and I bought that online program and I bought that online program,” it probably hasn’t served you well if you’re not getting anywhere in your business.

You’re probably out there flapping your arms harder and harder and harder each day, because you’re being told you’ve got to do more, you’ve got to do more, working longer hours, implementing things more and more, instead of doing it once, you’re doing it 10 times. That’s not the answer. That’s not the answer because it hasn’t given you results, right?

If you’re interested in finding out more about my SMJ Coaching Institute and my Master Coach Program, the link is here in the video, reach out to me and we’ll have a discussion on whether it suits you because you’ve probably bought all of these programs that one, you may not even finish, two, realised it’s so much work and three, it doesn’t really fit your business because it’s cookie cutter and you’re not quite fitting into that square peg into the round hole. A lot of programs are like that. I’ve designed the program where it fits you, it’s personal, you’re dealing with me personally. It’s not an online trying to work it out yourself program.

If you’re living in that world, reach out to me and we’ll have a discussion to see if my program will suit you in the longer term; it’s personalised, hanging around with my Master Coaches, hearing on a daily basis what’s really working in the marketplace right now, then you’ll start to feel that momentum moving forward. Stop flapping your wings harder and harder and harder and harder, and more and more and more, start working strategically, start working together with other likeminded people that are going to allow you to soar into those clouds.
