When it comes to creating a quantum leap in your income, I talk a lot about the Law of Cause and Effect, especially when working with my private clients.
The Universal Law of Cause and Effect states that for every effect there is a definite cause… likewise for every cause, there is a definite effect. That means your thoughts, behaviors, and actions create specific effects that manifest and create your life as you know it.
So often, we only focus on the outer game actions… and don’t get me wrong, actions are important. Especially honing in on and taking the RIGHT actions consistently!
But the Law of Cause and Effect isn’t just about those outer game actions, it’s also about the INNER GAME actions.
You are ‘First Cause’ on the physical plane.
What you do or don’t do (and how you do or don’t do it) determines your results. But actions always have roots in our thoughts… which means, the thoughts and beliefs that drive your behaviors and actions are a cause.
One place that women often get stopped is around sales and marketing… because it’s asking for money and putting yourself out there. Egads! Send me back to my hidey-hole, please!
This can happen at every level, whether you’re just starting out or have been at it for years. If you’re plateauing… if you’re not calling in the money that you desire… you’ve got to look at where you are causing this. I give three examples in this short video of how this can show up. It’s nuanced, so listen up! :)
So I want you to get honest with yourself today… what do you believe to be true about sales?
What is the story you tell yourself that leads you to not showing up as fully as you can be with sales and marketing? That keeps you stuck in smallness, avoiding visibility and not taking a stand for the value of the solutions that you provide people?
How you answer these questions matters. Because while it’s incredibly important to understand the sales conversation process and to master it, if you’re not managing your mindset (which is at the root of all causes you put into effect), you will constantly stop and sabotage yourself.
Start by answering the above questions and identifying the thoughts and beliefs that have been driving your actions (or inaction) around sales.
