Have your cake and eat it too!
A prospect began his story by informing me, all he needed for his business was – more money. He’s not the only one.
Our urgent need for money TODAY triggers us, to take an unending series of actions; that just don’t seem to end. We keep yearning for that breakthrough; for that moment when everything will be fine and perfect; not realizing that
Our biggest tragedy is . . . trading what we want most, for what you want now.
I indicated to him that there would be no end to his ‘need’ for money – because his basic operating premise was flawed. Anthony Robbins puts it succinctly: It is never a matter of resources; it is always a matter of resourcefulness.
This prospect became my client. I first got him focused on distinguishing what he truly wanted in his life and then coached him to build a business model around his identified passions.
From a struggling businessperson, he transformed himself into a budding PassionPreneur.
Instead of working to be happy; he was happy – doing what he loves doing; the way he loves doing it; with those whom he would love to do it with — and generating enough to sustain his lifestyle with.
He is not headed to paradise. He is in paradise.
