I’ve had a very strange day.
A little background. Over the past few years, I’ve developed an unhelpful habit of engaging with people who promise to grow my coaching practice to at least six figures, usually in less than six months. I’ve spent a lot of money buying such services with zero results.
I’ve spent considerable time recently attending webinars for such providers and they all promise the earth with the “one way” of developing new business. Strangely, every system is different but there you go.
Last week I had decided to repeat my habit and was due to sign up to my selected marketing expert and have my first session this morning. As usual, this offer seemed the answer to everything I needed, and I was excited to start.
Since deciding to go with this provider, a phrase from Og has been going around and around my head. In fact, it’s the phrase that I’ve written above the start of scroll 2; “an action that proved successful today will be unworkable and impractical tomorrow”. That kept resonating with me. It makes so much more sense to design such a system using my own experience and creativity.
So. This morning I decided not to sign up and I contacted the provider to let him know.
That’s when the fun started. I felt what I can only describe as “panic.” I had to get out of my house and cycled to a local coffee shop to calm down and get on with work.
Then something that they mentioned in “What the bleep do we know” connected with me. It seems to me that I was addicted to this habit, this feeling of starting a fresh marketing project and I was feeling withdrawal symptoms. I’ve never had a drug issue, but I’ve read enough about it to recognise the effects.
Well, the feeling soon passed, and I’m left feeling lighter, more energetic, and more joyful than I’ve ever experienced.
As I said, a strange day.
