Am I right about this?
If you treat it like a hobby, you’ll get paid like it's a hobby.
If you treat it like a job, you’ll be paid like it’s a job.
If you treat it like a career, you’ll get paid like its a career.
If you treat it like a professional, you’ll get paid like a professional.
It just guts me to see people give up so much to chase the dream of being a coach, course creator or consultant but give up after 3-6 months of work and figure ‘it’s not for me’.
Part of that is because marketers are always setting people up for failure buy promising HUGE results in just a few months and then crushing people with self doubt when that doesn’t happen.
But as much as I like to throw rocks at the High Ticket Gurus, we have to take ownership too.
Are we treating what we do as a hobby, job, career or a professional?
Hobby: If you give up after 3 to 6 months, or post on social media here and there, take one coaching...
I remember when I was a kid, my grandfather used to always tell me:
"You've got to work hard, you've got to go to school and get a degree, then you can succeed".
When I was younger I used to love school, but then around high school I started hating it, and by the time college came around, I knew that I didn't want to pay crazy amounts of money to do something that I hated.
Without me realizing it, it became a battle of 'going to school to succeed' or 'having an average life'.
I didn't want school, so I resigned myself to living an average life.
By sheer chance, I got the opportunity to scrape dishes as a bus boy at the Country Club and be around very successful people that made it look easy.
But for me, I still had years of ups and downs before it started to feel easy, because my belief system was that it needed to be hard.
The crazy thing is I was programmed that success NEEDs to be hard.
How many of us have been told through our entire life: 'you've got to work hard for success'?
