Here’s A Good Idea
Occasionally, someone will say (in writing, form a distance) rather snidely, “It’s easy for you to advocate that practice because you have a strong brand. What about the rest of us? You can’t relate to where we are!” (These are not people who enter my coaching program!!)
How the hell do they think that I arrived at where I am? Do they believe I had one set of behaviors and beliefs then, which I changed when I became more successful? You build on strengths, you don’t replace them. I’ve always done what I’m doing today, except I’ve continually become better at it.
I have the good fortune to coach a huge diversity of people all over the globe, at every stage of their careers. I’m in touch daily with people who are just beginning their journey, and those who are earning well into seven figures, and people at all stage in between.
You can take an idea and figure out why it can’t work for you and has no validity, or you can take an idea and figure out how it can work for you since it’s worked for others.
What I advocate is the latter. Unfortunately, most critics are in the rear, not on the front lines.
