Hey, I have an interesting offer for you. I want to give you a session of free coaching with me, worth $1,500.
So take a second and think about the first thing you would talk about. What is the most important issue you want to discuss with me? Take a minute and really think about it. I’ll wait…
Okay great. I lied. I’m not offering free coaching, but wanted to conduct an experiment. Or more accurately, wanted you to conduct an experiment on yourself.
There is an interesting pattern when I counsel or consult with people. When I ask what is going on, how their group is doing, or how I can help them – the first thing they bring up is a negative.
Someone dropping out. Some distributor who left, trying to steal their people. A backorder, company mix-up, or negative publicity.
Their default answer is whatever they perceive to be their biggest challenge right now. Which raises an interesting question…
Why don’t they bring up their hot new rising star? The group that’s growing the fastest right now, or some other positive situation that they would like to accelerate upon?
So back to the really important question…
What was your first reaction?
