Take a STAND, and do What you DO well – without Sparkly Distractions

by Louise Crooks

Today, I saw something that made me a little sad. It was a coach, who is doing life-coaching with a particular niche, but had also become a Mary Kay consultant. Don’t get me wrong there is nothing wrong with doing Mary Kay, I love their stuff, and it’s a great way to make a living. BUT what that means is that this coach, who had such an amazing vision, isn’t having enough success to be able to focus her energies on just making income in her coaching business. She’s diversified into something that doesn’t compliment her business, and in a sense she is now running two businesses and she is trying to build BOTH! How do you think that is going to go?

In 2014, I want to encourage you to make a stand for what you really want to go for. Don’t allow yourself to be distracted by add-ons, or alternatives. Build the CORE of your business, and do it the right way. Not piece-meal, here and there, but commit to doing what you do, and giving it your all. Not the half-assed, I’ll make a couple of calls today, and I’ll think about speaking next month approach. I’m talking about making sure you have a committed plan in place, so you know what you’re going for. Treat it like you were working for someone else. (yes that’s a loaded statement, but I bet many can relate to the difference in action that would make in your life!)

Give it your ‘balls to the wall’ commitment of building your BUSINESS. Not a hobby, or a ‘I’ll get to it when I feel like it because I’m having an off day’.

Ok, am I freaking you out yet? LOL.

I know it’s pretty charged language right? But I want you to succeed. And to do that you need to give yourself the CHANCE to succeed. I see so many who don’t, and move onto something else way too quickly. And sometimes just before they’re just about to break through…

So ask yourself what the CORE of your work is. And how can you make a decent income focusing just on that? Keep it simple. It doesn’t have to be complicated. Once you’ve built a foundation of consistent income, then is the time to start looking at ‘add-ons’. EG: Nutritionist using supplements or An Image Consultant or Coach using Mary Kay. And even then be careful. When you take on an MLM or direct selling, you really are building another business, unless you are just intentionally selling the products as a way to complement what you already do. Be really intentional around this. Don’t let it be a ‘I’ll be able to make money quickly this way’ sparkly distraction, because I promise you it’s not a get rich quick path. It’s another business you have to build – from scratch.

So why not focus on what you do best and love the most, and just do it REALLY well.  If you do that, you’ll be much more likely to manifest your desires, and in a much shorter time frame.
