Here at Sunwapta Solutions, the Manifast team and I are big believers in continuous learning and being coached.
In fact, over the past few years we have spent a substantial sum to ensure not only that we can thrive as a business, but that we are able to help your businesses grow by being better ourselves.
One of my recent training calls was with a prominent mindset coach named David Neagle.
He shares a great deal of information on “The Laws” and how to apply them.
Paying the Price of the Gift
One of the things he said hit me (and I paraphrase):
“We often wish for guidance or help and yet when it comes, we don’t accept the gift because there is a price to it. The price may be monetary or it may require work or change.”
Essentially, we want miracles and quick fixes and we want them for free.
But it doesn’t really work like that. At least not for very long.
If you don’t believe me, I would like to hire YOUR services for the next 2 years for no pay.
See! You expect to get paid for the value you provide.
Are you willing to pay for the value you receive?
That is the lesson that Bob Burg and John David Mann talk about in The Go-Giver as well. You can’t breathe out for very long without without breathing in. Similarly you can’t give without someone receiving.
You have to enable both to achieve great success.
I am truly seeing that to get your business to the next level you have to see spending as an investment.
So what problems do you have or what help do you need that would create value for you? Are you willing to pay for them so that you can grow your business much faster?
Sure you have to get past the monetary chicken and egg conundrum first, especially if you are just starting. Looking at things from the frame of abundance and partnership helps too.
Once you make that shift in mindset new opportunities seem to abound.
I hope they do for you as well.
To your business growth and success!
P.S. We have some great events coming up in May that you or someone you know may benefit from.
P.P.S. If you need help with sales you might find the 1 Day Sales Workshop useful. Feedback from the pilot on 16 April was excellent.
