Regarding your business, or your the early stages of your business, maybe you’re doing so many different things; and it doesn’t matter what you’re doing, you can’t seem to create the success that you dream of, that you know is possible, that you see happening for other people, but it’s not happening for you. And a lot of times, our subconscious is playing a part in this. And I just want to bring this out into the spotlight, so you know what’s going on the inside. Because when you know that, then you can change things on the outside. And here’s kind of how this progression happens when you first get started, and, setting up your business or in the early stages. A lot of times, you don’t know what you don’t know, right? Like my guess is you’ve never started a business before. And so, this is brand new territory. You’re good at what you do, right? Being a great coach is one thing having, a thriving coaching business, it’s altogether different. So, you don’t know what you don’t know – and then that leads to flying by the seat of our pants. There’s like this path, that this choice that you have, right? And most of the time, it’s this our passion, and, our enthusiasm about starting this new venture gets the best of us, and, all of a sudden, we’re just flying by the seat of our pants; figuring it out as we go along. And that leads to “oh crap! now what?” and all of a sudden you’re in reactionary mode. When it comes to your business, you learn, “oh my gosh I need to do that,” “oh I didn’t know that okay I got to do that.” All these people are telling you things, and, you’re in this oh-crap reactionary mode. That’s stressful, really depleting on the energy. It has a lot of other consequence as well. And when we’re in that mode, all we can be is uncertain. Like uncertainty is ruling things. Lack of confidence is what shows up. This react “oh my gosh. should I forget something is?” “Something slipping through the cracks?” “Do I know about this?” “What don’t I know?” “What else is going to show?” And all of a sudden, this doubt takes over – and when that happens, these villains start rushing forward. You feel like a fraud; you’re not good enough; things aren’t good enough; your business isn’t good enough; you’re comparing yourself to other people, and, I could go on and on with the villains that are showing up. And that’s what’s ruling your thoughts, your energy, your behaviors, your actions. You’re trying to have sessions with prospects, are trying to find them, and, all of this is clouding your judgment. And subconsciously, when these, when these villains kick in, and, this uncertainty, and, this lack of confidence in this doubt is prevailing. This is it permeates everything, right? It’s like this – these enter, this energy that’s mixed in and permeating through everything. And so when you’re, you know, your mouth is saying “I need clients, I want clients, I want to make money,” but subconsciously, you’re digging your heels. And you’re like no, because if I if I put myself out there, they’re gonna discover the fraud that I am. They’re gonna realize I don’t have my stuff together. When really, what you want to be as professional. And you want to be of profound service but you feel like anything but that in that moment right so you’re cutting your subconscious is screaming no; while your mouth is saying yes. And you’re in this tug-of-war with yourself, right? So, does this sound familiar? And it’s so common with so many entrepreneurs, because they don’t know. What they don’t know they’ve never done this before, right? And there’s a way to turn this around. The first is just to realize this – to realize that there’s this disconnect, and, then to make a commitment to learn what you need, to know about setting up a business. Because there are some important things that you have to know, and, what I find is that a lot of people, they just put their attention on “let me try to get more clients, okay?” That marketing strategy didn’t work. Let me go try another marketing strategy, and, they just keep trying different marketing strategies; hoping the next one will work. Meanwhile, they’re not taking care of things behind the scenes in their business, and, behind the scenes, and, their energy. So, their subconscious keeps them at this tug-of-war.

You hit a plateau. You feel it doesn’t matter. What you do, you can’t grow beyond the few pro bono clients you have, or the revenue ceiling that you’ve hit. And it’s what happens behind the scenes, both in your business, and, in you energetically where you can make a big difference. So, I just want to put that out there because sometimes you’re a tug-of-war with yourself; and you don’t even know it. So just drop that rope. Make the commitment to learn what you need to learn; about the business of coaching.
