We've all been there:
"I’ve been trying everything I can think of, nothing is working, I don’t know what else to do to make this happen. It feels like I’m banging my head against a wall and it won’t open."
When this happens, it's time to stop. Breathe.
The issue is not the DOING. It’s how you’re BEING about the doing.
If you’re truly having the issue of “trying everything you can think of and nothing is working,” I can guarantee you the solution is not to try the same old things, but harder and with more desperation.
It’s like in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone where Ron is stuck in the Devil’s Snare and the harder he struggles the more he gets stuck (yes I’m throwing a Harry Potter reference). The only way to get through the Devil’s Snare was to … wait for it …
Your business (and your life!) is the same.
When we’re in a space of doing things with a, “why isn’t this working?!” mindset, you’re going to attract more of the same. You won’t get different results doing the same things you’ve been doing. So instead, try something radically different.
- Take an afternoon or (gasp!) even a whole day OFF from your business,
- Make a phone call instead of sending an email,
- Go to a sexy dance class instead of yoga or
- Go to yoga instead of running.
Whatever you decide to do, the most important thing is to get back to a place of excitement, and joy, and service in your business. THEN come to it with fresh eyes. I guarantee what you see will surprise you.
When you don’t know what to do, it’s time to do something different.
