You want an advisor, a consultant, or a coach that always gives you counter-intuitive advice. You know why?
Because if it were intuitive, you would already be doing it.
So many people are not happy with where they are, especially at this time of year. It’s a time where people reflect and they may not like where they are. They make goals and vision boards.
Here’s the thing: where you are right now is a direct reflection of the choices that you made to get here.
So many people say, “Oh, it’s my community. People won’t pay.” All of these things are victims of circumstance if you ask them. The reality is, they’re the ones that created it.
To really take ownership of your present situation. the first step is to understand that you created this.
From there, we can talk about what it would take to get to the next level. Most of the time, it’s not that you’re missing something. It’s that you are not the type of person.
If you are here today as a result of the choices that you made, then in order to go where you want to go, the people that got you here may not be able to get you there. At the same time, the person that you are today – that got you where you are today – may not be able to get you where you’re trying to go.
When I’m working with people, they sometimes think that what we’re doing is crazy. They think that the advice that we give is crazy, too. I always say, especially to my clients, that any piece of advice I give should necessarily feel and sound counter-intuitive.
You want counter-intuitive advice. We’re telling you things that you’re not already doing, so they’re counterintuitive. Those are the things you’re missing; they’re what you need to do in order to get you to where you want to go.
