Have you ever known exactly what you needed to do next to get to that bigger level in your business? But thought you couldn’t afford it?
Maybe for you it’s hiring some admin support, investing in training or mentorship, maybe even getting an office…
But there’s that excuse I’ve seen creeping up for business owners over the last 16 years, keeping you from taking action on that one thing that will take you to where you want to be.
Would you like to know how to get past the belief that you can’t afford “that thing”? Watch this week’s 4-minute video to learn what I (and our students) do. It’ll change the way you look at life and business:
At a certain point in business, after you’ve done the low-cost to no-cost stuff to get a little traction, the thing you need actually has a price-tag on it.
It costs money.
And so the excuse pops up:
“I would really like to ______________, but I can’t afford it.”
That’s not actually true.
As I shared in this week’s video, the laws of Quantum Physics assure us that when we ASK for what we want, we are given that thing, 100% of the time.
But instead of taking that opportunity to grow, most people use an excuse to not even try.
And when you say yes to the excuse, you say no to your dreams, for good.
Thing is, you can decide at any moment to throw away your excuses.
You can decide to shift how you think about that opportunity for growth that’s right under your nose.
Instead of saying, “I CAN’T afford it” and being done with that, ask yourself, “HOW can I afford it?”
Be curious. Be resourceful. Find the money.
Be willing to hustle to do just a little bit more marketing to get a few more clients so you can invest in that thing that will get you to that next level, whether it’s mentorship, an assistant, or that new office.
The resources are always there. All you have to do is trust that they exist, look for them and then say YES.
You must be resourceful. You must take actions on the ideas that are presented to you as potential solutions.
The money (or time, expertise, etc.) you need is ALWAYS there. Especially when you look for the solution instead of relying on an excuse.
This subtle distinction is how I continue to grow my own business year after year, and it’s a core belief I pass on to our students so they do too. It’s pretty miraculous, actually. And it’s just a small shift in Mindset that pays off in spades.
Let’s you and I be more like MacGyver,
P.S. You can stay where you are, but everything you want is on the other side of that excuse. Ditch it and then take action, OK?
