I just spent a weekend leading the sold out Powerhouse California retreat, and before that I was in my 2-day mastermind with my very own business coach.
Now I’m enjoying San Diego with my loved ones and I can’t help but think about my life now and how it used to be.
I was remembering one of the business breakthroughs I’ve had came in my experience with my business coach’s Bring a Friend contest to invite people to her annual event, The Zone.
The first 2 years I could have played the contest, I didn’t. I thought, I would I help my business coach build her business when I’m a business coach myself and I want to build my business!
The 3rd year of the contest, Shanda (my coach) asked my why I was not playing the contest and I told her.
She said… “If you want to have a massive breakthrough, you can’t think like that. Stop focusing on you and yours. Look up and see who you can help.”
That year I went from having not played at all, to playing to win.
Then I had resistance around sharing my strategies with my competitors, and Shanda told me if I shared what was working for me, then I could actually empower everyone to play a bigger game – so I started sharing my strategies.
Then my focus moved from winning the contest to making a difference.
I became committed to inviting anyone I thought of who the Zone event would help to the event.
I ended up winning the contest and helping everyone else who was playing play at a higher level.
The #1 Secret I Learned from my Business Coach Was: Practice Generosity at the Highest Level.
Whenever I get stuck in my own head, I think… how can I make the biggest difference in this moment?
Who can I make a difference for?
Then I go do that.
Tell me, who can you make a difference for today?
