JUST KEEP GOING — EVEN IF YOU THINK YOU CAN’T GO ON…

 

While on this journey of life and entrepreneurship you are sometimes going to hit a few rough spots. Moments where you feel like you’re spinning your wheels, getting nowhere fast.

 

If you are a coach who is currently feeling STUCK and FLAT and you’re questioning if you’ll ever figure out how to make money coaching, then stay with me here.

 

Here’s is what I want to tell you: keep going. It’s gonna get better. Really.

 

There have been more than a few times in my life where things were hard–really hard. And I just had to keep plowing for it, no matter how things looked.

 

I’ve had these moments in both business and in life.

 

One of those times was when my son Dallan was younger.

 

See, when he was little, he had extreme behavioural issues–and this made him a challenging child to raise. It was to the point where we enlisted the help of a behavioural therapist–someone who could help us learn, basically, how to parent him all over again.

Because we were at a point where what we were doing wasn’t working. And since I’m a firm believer in what Einstein says about doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result, we knew that we needed help. We needed different strategies. So we sought them out.

One person who made a huge difference in our lives was Jonathan with Q Creative. I remember being in an especially stressful moment and asking him to just tell me when.

When is my life gonna be normal?

I just wanted a normal life. I wanted to do the things that normal people do. I wanted to be able to take my family out for pizza. I wanted to have a night out and have a normal life.

 

And at the time, something like going out for dinner was impossible–his behaviours were just too extreme. And I didn’t know when that would ever change.

 

Jonathan said, “Daleen, I don’t know when. I can’t tell you a date. But I guarantee that you will. I guarantee that you’ll get there. I guarantee that Dallen will be able to go out for dinner with you guys one day. I guarantee that you will be able to do all those normal activities. We just gotta put in the time.”

 

So we put in the time–literally every day. I mean obviously, I couldn’t give up on my child–so there was no alternative.

 

We put in the time. We learned the strategies. And our results were amazing.

Now, he’s 12--and going out to dinner is our favourite thing to do!

It’s the same with your business. You just gotta put in the time.

 

Building a business really is a lot like having a baby–you gotta go in for the long haul. There is no magic formula, there are no shortcuts. You’ve got to put in the time. You’ve got to do the work. It’s the only way you’re going to LEARN.

 

Just like I had to do with Dallan. I had to learn new strategies, which really paid off in the long run. Because we put in the time. We learned what we needed to learn. And we got there.

 

Don’t think that you’ll never get there. Cause I guarantee you will.

 

So if you are stuck–if you’re struggling–it’s NOT that you’re a failure. All it means is that there’s just more to LEARN.

 

So you can go about learning in two ways: you can keep struggling and trying to figure it out on your own, or you can invest in a coach or a mentor, just I like I did.

 

Because I’m not gonna say this online business thing is easy. Sure, it’s a lot easier when you learn strategies that actually work, but you do have to actually LEARN them, right? That’s where a good coach or mentor comes in.

 

Of course, the choice is yours. A lot of the time, it’s the financial investment that scares people, and I get that.

 

But put your business sense on and think of it this way–if someone can help you learn something faster, then you’re gonna get that return on your investment, right?

 

And here’s the thing–why would people invest in you if you don’t want to invest in yourself?

 

So if you have clients that are saying “I’d like to work with you, but I can’t invest in you right now”, ask yourself if you’re saying the same thing to others. If you’re telling people things like “I’d really like to get clients first before I invest in a coach”, it’s probably going to become your reality as well.

 

Cause life always mirrors back exactly who you are.

 

So do what you need to do, learn what you need to learn. Even if it seems hopeless, it’s not.

Take it one step at a time, but keep going. And when you need help–get it.

 

Keep doing this and you will get there—GUARANTEED.
