Have you noticed that some people want great and instant results? But… they’re reluctant to put in the effort required to get those results.

I’m bringing this up because I had a conversation recently with a potential client who wanted to get ahead. He was throwing out lots of ideas but had not thought through what it would take to implement those ideas. When I began asking questions (which coaches are trained to do! 😊), he didn’t have answers to the “how” his ideas would come to life. Ideas aren’t enough.

The conversation felt like having a dream about standing on the platform and accepting a gold medal in the Olympics for alpine skiing without ever having skied!

Imagine that. No practice or prowess in a sport as challenging as Alpine skiing and winning the Olympic Gold Medal. Makes no sense, right?

Business owners who want to win the gold medal of business success but don’t really want to put in the hard work of planning, marketing, selling, measuring and building, are like my almost client. Sitting on the couch dreaming dreams and eating bon-bons won’t get you there. I didn’t offer to work with this particular business owner because I could see that he wanted success to be easy and that “work” was a 4-letter word for him.

You have to do the work. Be exceptional and decide to stop trying to be the exception. Exceptional people are successful because they refuse to engage in excuses and reasons why something won’t work. To quote Nike, “Just do it”!

I’m offering ways to “do it” over the next few weeks.
