A question I get asked over and over again is how to get more clients – how to become a client magnet.
And I could send them to numerous blog posts where it is broadly explained how to get more clients (I added a few for your convenience further down this post).
They explain it better than I ever could explain it, so I am not going down that road.
I love tactics, but explaining just tactics is not what makes me tick.
Because in the end. It is never a case of tactics. Sure tactics do help. But they are usually only 20% of the solution.
80% is conquering your mind. Your mind that tells you:
“The mind is a powerful force. It can enslave us or empower us. It can plunge us into the depths of misery or take us to the heights of ecstasy. Learn to use the power wisely.”
- David Cuschieri
I am sure your mind has many more variations. I know my mind does ;-).
So I like to tell people to do the following:
And now comes the best part.
You will notice that you will procrastinate. Your mind will wander. You will feel off. You will say to yourself “now is not a good day” or “it’s not a good tactic after all”.
What I want you to do when that happens is the following:
1. Forgive yourself. Just say it to yourself: “I forgive myself for thinking I can’t do it” Or whatever you are thinking. Even if you think this is really out there, just do it. You will find that it works even if you don’t believe in it.
2. Write down all your thoughts with pen and paper around why you are procrastinating.
3. For every thought ask yourself: “Is it true?”
This should already give you some relief and will make you want to execute again.
“Don’t believe everything you think.”
― Byron Katie
Depending on how much time you give yourself (I would say, invest heaps of time in this!! It will pay you back later) you can do a whole Byron Katie sequence on each thought. Byron Katie is the lady who came up with the 4 questions that will change you live. And ‘Is it true?” is the first one.
The book: “4 Questions that can change your life”
