High performers in any field don’t focus on the outcome they want. 

They recognise that success comes from a prescribed series of actions, undertaken with full concentration and commitment.

If a footballer thinks, I have to get this goal, he’s way more likely to miss it.

When an interviewee tells herself, I NEED this job, the offer never comes.

And if you say, I HAVE to make this sale, your prospect likely feels discomfort, you wobble, and the whole thing goes off the rails. 

Here’s a better idea:

  • Focus on the process
  • Do A, then B, then C
  • Caress each step
  • Acknowledge the progress you’re making, bit by bit
  • Recognise when you’ve done enough

Follow the stages, not the wages.


PS: I’m putting together a high-end 12-month mastermind for already-successful coaches or therapists who’d like to get to the next level of success. It’ll be an exclusive club and I only have room for three plus me. If you’d like an application form, reply with “Mastermind” and I’ll get one out to you.
