What is it that gets you stuck? Keeps you at a certain plateau, treading water, instead of moving forward?
I’m back in Stockholm, keynoting for the Zinzino International Convention this weekend. But last night I got to perform one of the best aspects of my job. It was an intimate dinner with their top income earners, coaching them on how they achieve their next breakthrough.
The leaders in that room are some of the most successful people in the world. But even they sometimes get stuck and plateau at some point.
Here’s what I’ve discovered, and shared with them.
It isn’t fear of failure. No one gets to their level of success with fear of failure. They got over that craziness long ago. They know the opportunities in life are real. And they know that when they do the work – in their business, and on themselves – the next breakthrough soon follows.
They’ve experienced the cause-and-effect relationship and know exactly how to transform temporary failure into success. So how come they sometimes take a timeout, freeze their potential, and don’t go after that next level of achievement?
Fear of even greater success. Because they’re afraid of the awesome strength of what they possess. And that’s where we’ll pick up on the next post. Until then, I’d love to hear any insights you have, in the comments below.
