It’s the first week of the month, which means it’s time to break out the calculator.
3 months down, 9 to go, $X earned and $Y left means you need to make what amount a month to reach your goal?
Every 30 days the calculation gets redone, and each time you ask – are you getting closer to or further away from your goal?
What can feel easy, breezy at the beginning of the year, can feel like a hail mary as the months go by.
If you are like me, the closer you get to hail mary status, the less motivated you become. I know that sounds like the opposite of what is supposed to happen. The reality, though, is that too much pressure stresses me out, and shuts me down.
So if what we are doing is stressing us out what do we do instead? After all, virtually every sales training / goal setting class starts with “know your numbers”.
What if you could put down the calculator, and try something different? Something that didn’t make you hyperventilate?
Einstein said it best:
“You can’t solve a problem with the same level of thinking that created it.”
Let go of the how and when and tap into your ability to create your dreams.
Get clear on exactly what it is you want, and why you want it.
From there, set aside time each day to tap into that. It sounds weird, but it works. Every time I’ve had a big growth in my business it’s because I let go of the how, and focused on keeping my energy and therefore my actions moving forward.
I’d love to tell you that I get it right all of the time, but I’m a classic over thinker, so there are also times when I feel the need to control the how and all of the details. The minute I stop rolling with it so does my income.
So weird or not, I can tell you from experience, that one definitely works better than the other.
