I Have A Confession To Make – My Dark Secret

I AM the biggest procrastinator in the whole world.

There is not enough chocolate in the world I could swallow down to numb my fear, confusion and angst.
Did I already mention fear? 🙂

So why should you listen to me?

Because

A) I know what I’m talking about.

…at least in some areas of my life. 🙂

What do I mean by that?

There are certain areas I’m pretty good at. Others not so.

Those are the people you should listen to. The people who know what they’re talking about.

Not to the gurus who tell you how to create a seven figure business in less than a year, who are in fact broke.

Not to the expert who has millions of views and comments online and doesn’t tell you that he has a big, huge, humongous budget to buy likes and to get in front of millions of people and therefore has so many people on his/her list and followers on Facebook or Instagram.
(Did you know that there are businesses out there, selling you a couple of thousand followers?)

Who You Should Listen To

You should listen to those who experienced and are/were going through what they are teaching you.

B) I am a teacher.
I was working as a primary teacher and I was also 6 years a principal.

I have studied and applied things like creating curriculums, breaking it down into objectives, how to motivate children (and teachers and parents), I know how to organize, how to delegate and how to teach. I’m also good about seeing the different outcomes and problems that could arise and in finding possible solutions.

What I’m good at:

I am really good when it comes to organizing, delegating, when it comes to creating plans, systems and I can give you lots of ideas on how to execute things and to get new ideas for whatever you are working right now. I can give you action steps to take to bring you closer to your goal.

What I really suck at:

But I am really, really bad when it comes to executing all the little stuff myself. I am a visionary and I can see the big picture and break it down into smaller pieces and give action steps to take, which is great when it comes to working with clients.

But I just can’t stand doing the little tasks and things to make it happen.

I want stuff to get executed fast, perfect and it has to be visually appealing but when I have to do it on my own it never looks like I visualized it. Then I am frustrated because the teeny parts (that are really not that important most of the time) stop me from getting stuff done.

That’s why it is so crucial to find someone who can do the stuff you simply just can’t, which you hate to do or which would take you days and weeks to finish AND make you feel unhappy.

What do I want to say with all of that:
Do I have figured out everything. NO.

Am I learning each day. YES.

Should you listen to me. You can if you want to, or not.

But let me give you this advice along your journey:

Whenever you choose a person you want to work with or learn from, take a look at their journey and their experience and don’t let you blind by the guru or the person who tells you they have figured it all out.

 

Because: They don’t. No one has.
(God, the Universe, however you want to call it has figured it all out but that doesn’t count here. :D)

If you are looking for someone to teach you, to train you, to coach you:

Listen to your gut and see if they are a fit for you and take a look at their journey so far before you invest in the shiny object they offer.

Stick to those wo know and experienced what they teach, because those are the ones who really know how to help and to motivate you to get you closer to whatever you want in your business and life. 

 

What are you really good at? Let me know in the comments because it’s interesting to hear and good when you remind yourself about what you can do really well.
