I just finished reading “Think And Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill.
Originally published in 1937…I was amazed at how relevant this book is to achieving success today.
And, while I don’t agree with everything he says…you will greatly benefit from 95% of it.
Anyway…it reminded me of this client that didn’t believe in what I was doing.
He was my first client and yet he didn’t believe in my methods or my advice.
He was all about making money…
He didn’t care what industry…
He didn’t care what service…
He didn’t care what his gifts were…
He just wanted to make more money!
And because of this attitude…this belief system…he struggled.
Even though he became a client over 20 years ago…he still signs back up every couple of years.
But, now I’m on to him…and I fired him for good!
You may have guessed that this first client was ME.
You have to be your first client.
You have to believe what you’re selling first…before you can offer it to anyone else.
More importantly, you have to believe that you are bringing more value to your clients than what you receive.
If you’ve been struggling and approaching things from a purpose of “making money”, it’s time to flip your formula.
Fire that 1st doubting client today!
Then…starting working with the one that believes.
One of the things the book recommends to improve your belief is a Mastermind group. That was great confirmation for me as I fired up my Inner Circle just before picking up the book.
A group can help you see that non-believing client and make it easier to wipe them out.
