Hey there, it’s Jane Atkinson with your Wealthy Speaker Success Tip. I thought I would just talk to you while drinking my morning smoothie.
Have you ever felt stuck, like your business has come to a standstill, like you’re not getting the results that you want?
if that has ever happened to you. I want to give you a three-part strategy for getting unstuck. Okay? It’s three things. You may want to write these down, and you may want to refer to this video over and over.
The three pieces quickly are Mindset, Marketing and Consistent Action.
Okay, so let me circle back to mindset. The first thing we need to do is we need to check in on our thoughts about our speaking business. If your thought is anywhere in the neighbourhood of “this isn’t working” or “It’s not happening fast enough”, that is going to put you into a feeling of less than, a feeling of doubt, a feeling of defeat. And when you’re taking all your actions from a place of defeat it’s not going to work. We know that our thoughts equal our results. So, number one, we need to check in on our thoughts and really align our mindset toward success.
One of my clients was a little frustrated during the process, and he came up with an intentional thought which was, “It’s just a matter of time”.
If you’re getting zero out of 10, then we need to revisit the marketing and make sure that you come up with a promise and a strategy for solving the problem. That it’s something that people are going to pay for. Okay, so number one mindset, number two is marketing. Check in on your marketing.
Number three is consistent action. If you are giving up after three months, after six months, perhaps even after a year. If you are, if you know that your mindset’s okay and you know, you’re marketing is okay. The next thing just comes down to consistent action.
If you’re ready to give up after a period of time, then you really have to check in on this because, in my experience, that same client I was just mentioning to you that got frustrated…he did not hit traction until about 18 months and that was with a lot of consistent action over those 18 months.
Then he started to really see the results. So, the whole blank Farmers field idea, you’re not going to plant seeds and get a harvest in three months or even in six months. Maybe you’ll get lucky, and you’ll get one or two engagements, which would be amazing.
But most people want, you know, I want five bookings a month at this particular fee, and that doesn’t necessarily happen after two or three months give it about 18 months till you really start to see some traction happening.
Okay. So those are your three, check in on your mindset, check in on your marketing and make sure that you’re taking consistent action.
That’s it for me. I’ll see you soon, Wealthy Speakers.
