Do you remember when you had your first $5k month?
If you’re like me, you were filled with excitement and energy.
$5k felt like an incredible achievement, especially because I had created it using my own smarts and hard work.
If you’d asked me then to consider what it would take to hit $50k a month - I would’ve quietly freaked out.
I mean, obviously that sort of profit was the goal.
But I had little concept of how I would actually get there.
I was a $5k month guy. Then as I continued to learn and grow, I became a $10k month guy. And so on...
Every time I reached a new milestone, I doubled down on my hard work to push that milestone higher the next month.
But soon I hit a plateau.
I was maxed out in time, energy, and resources.
What I know now is: the ONLY way around these limits is a mindset upgrade.
The mindset of a $10k a month person simply cannot handle what it takes to earn $100k a month.
I don’t care how many things you do right to ensure business growth.
You WILL plateau out if there’s not also a consistent shift in your mindset.
Funnily enough, nearly everything you have to do that gets you to $1million, is almost the opposite of what you need to do to hit $10 million.
I totally get why people become stuck in this mindset trap.
Success leaves clues - we look at our path and see what worked. So naturally we think that doing more of that thing will get us a bigger result.
But to start hitting really eye-watering revenue goals, what we actually need is a bigger shift - in mindset, in strategy, and in execution.
We also need a shift in LEVERAGE.
Of how we leverage our selves, our time, our money, our resources to really take things to the next level.
Making this shift isn’t easy.
Sometimes when we start this shift work with clients, they’ll feel that in trying to ‘level up’ their business, they’re actually going backwards for a time.
That’s because to move forward, we have to unlearn the habits that got us to the present point.
A period of retraction is needed.
Tony Robbins explains this concept really well.
He says that when you want to go pro in tennis, you hire a tennis coach.
But do you become more skilled straight away?
Nope. You go backwards a bit first.
Because you need to break down old habits before building new ones.
Think about it..
If you build a 1 storey house, and then want to expand that into a 2 storey bigger house, you need to revisit your foundations before proceeding.
You might even need to smash some stuff up to rebuild.
Because the foundation of your original house isn’t suited to the specifications of your newer vision.
So don’t be afraid of taking a few steps backward in your business to move forward.
And if you want help building a better structure for a bigger business vision, you know where to find me.
