How To Match Your Effort With Your Intention
Nicole: “I have the intention, but lack the effort to recruit. What do I do?” You do it anyway. There’s going to be days. Talia Riser, I love that she talks about this all the time. She is a TEC client of Ray Higdon. He’s personally coached her on this issue and she’s turned it around to where, when she doesn’t feel like it, she does it even more. She’s actually built that in.
When she’s like, “Oh, I’m tired. Oh, I’ve got to go cook dinner. Oh, I’ve got to go pick my baby up at school. Oh, I don’t want to do this,” I’m going to really just knock the heck out of it right now. So she’s turned it around. It’s like Pavlov’s dog, it’s like the bell went off in her head when she heard herself, when she was speaking to herself, her subconscious was hammering in her head, “Oh, you don’t want to do this. You don’t want to do this,” and she just flipped it around and went, “You don’t tell me what to do. I’m going to go run my business like a boss.”
So Mathis, this happens to all of us, but as long as you are intentional, you’ve decided to show up every day, you’re intentional, you know what you need to do every day and you complete your DMO, do it and move on. Have a great day. Be present in your passions.
Nobody needs to be working their business 14 to 16 hours a day. You know what that means? Having your phone in front of your face, waiting for someone to reply to you that you sent a message to. Don’t do that to yourself. Do the do and have a great day.
Staci: Yeah, 100%. And you said in your comment here, Mathis, “I have the intention.” That’s an interesting choice of words. So you intend to do it, but then what is it that’s getting in the way? You’re allowing your distractions to derail you.
You’re allowing your distractions to derail you. That’s a choice. I want you to understand that’s a choice. Sometimes you’re avoiding the work that you need to do because all the other little distractions are just easier than tackling whatever it is that you find uncomfortable or difficult, or maybe you just don’t like it. Some people just don’t like prospecting.
So? A lot of people don’t like prospecting. But if you avoid it by allowing all those other little distractions to come in, when you lay down in bed at night and you put your head on the pillow, you have that heart to heart with yourself where you’re like, “I broke a promise to myself, because I had the intention and didn’t follow through.” And if you make a habit of not honoring your promises to yourself, you’re out of integrity and it’s not going to feel good. So I always advise getting crystal clear on your vision, Mathis.
Who is it that you want to become? Why are you doing this in the first place? Who loses if you don’t win, is the question Ray asks a lot, and I think it’s a good one, who loses if you don’t win? Who are you doing this for? Because if they legit are worthy enough or worth it enough for you to want to do these things, then you need to tap into what it is that’s going to make you show up when you don’t want to, and that’s a vision of who you want to become and the life that you really want to live. When you get crystal clear on that, intention, neither here nor there, it’s going to be in your bones.
You’re going to be committed and decided. And when you decide that nothing’s going to derail you, you will make sure. And something that we learned, Nicole and I, is analyze backwards. At the end of every day, ask yourself, what worked today, what didn’t work today, and what can I do better tomorrow?
I learned that from Brynn Lang. And if you’re asking yourself those questions, Mathis, and you say you discover, “I schedule the power hour at 3:00 p.m and that’s when I was going to work my business and got in my way,” then when you analyze backwards, if you say, “What didn’t work today?” and you say, “Life got in the way and I didn’t follow through on my power hour,” then you need to start scheduling it 3:00 in the afternoon, because life is getting in your way.
So maybe tomorrow you might want to get up an hour earlier before life gets in the way and do your power hour. You see what I’m saying? You control what activity you do during the time you have available to build your business. So there’s always the mindset piece.
We already talked about that. So if you have some limiting beliefs around recruiting, then you need to address that. If you have some issues around belief, you need to address that. But if you’re addressing that and you’re still procrastinating or not following through, then you need to start. Craft that vision, be clear on it. Commit, decide, schedule, analyze backwards. And that will keep you on track.
