Alright, let’s get into today’s topic. It’s identifying the blind spots that prevent people from really achieving the success that they’ve always wanted.
So let’s talk about it. You know, I see entrepreneurs on a continual basis, business owners, sales professionals. One of the things that they say all the time is, “I’m busy. I’m doing the activity, I’m just not seeing the results.” It’s really, really important to really make sure you’re doing the right activities. See, because people don’t know what they don’t know, and because we don’t know what we don’t know, it’s those blind spots that always b bite us in the butt.
So let’s go over some things that are potential blind spots for the majority of entrepreneurs, business owners, and sales professionals out there.
First and foremost, we see so many people showing up to just spray and pray. Show up and throw up. Ready, aim, shoot. They lack the strategic planning. They lack the clarity. They haven’t really done the do-diligence on creating a vision, creating a strategy. They haven’t planned out their success, let alone their day.
See, when you ask people what it is they want, it’s really easy for them to tell you what it is they don’t want. Very, very rarely can someone tell you what it is they do want, and if they can tell you what it is they do want, it’s so ambiguous, it’s unattainable. Remember, you’re going to hear me say time and time again the brain is incapable of achieving ambiguity.
