Does that sound like you?
You are loving
You are passionate
You have a tendency to help.
And already achieved a lot.
And yet you long for something more ...
You are in the right place.
You are stronger than you think
The biggest challenge you face as a high achiever is that your game is so much bigger than that of the others around you. You're playing at a level where most people can't even see how much you're holding back from what is possible.
I am an expert in leading high achievers from around the world to their greatest success. And here is what I know about you:
Despite your success - or because of it - it will not lead to your next level of success if you do more of what you are already doing.
Rather, it is precisely the qualities that have led to your current success that hold you back from even greater successes.
Through my work, I've found that there are nine mindsets that both propel you forward and hold you back the most at the same time.
Your skills become your hurdles:
1. You are a creative soul.
The very power of your vision can be detrimental to your success because you dream so big that you are overwhelmed. With so many options available to you, the paradox of that choice can make it so difficult to start any new project.
2. You experience explosive success.
Despite the admiration of those around you, often it doesn't feel like you ever worked so hard for everything you accomplished. It is easy to misinterpret the nature of quick win so that it can feel like you are hiding a "dirty little secret". Many of the top performers on the planet judge themselves for being "lazy".
3. You have deep, competing claims that come to the surface as you become more successful.
Your pursuit of success is motivated by deep beliefs and values. If you are not doing what you feel obliged to do, it is an indication that there is a stronger, competing obligation to you that you are unconsciously committed to.
4. You make yourself comfortable in the gray area.
The gray area refers to a runner's pace that is too fast to recover and too slow to grow. Such a pace can feel like a tough workout. But running in this zone, run after run, will actually result in a drop in performance.
The danger to being a high performer is that your gray area will do so much more than the average person, and so be tempted to constantly underperform without even realizing that you are doing it.
5. You are an extremely talented problem solver.
You have a finely tuned ability to scan the horizon for "danger" and that propensity to solve problems means that you are spurred on by challenges and threats. Hence, you tend to avoid things - taxes, relationships, income, etc. - until they reach the status of a problem. And you find it hard to focus on longer-term goals.
6. You strive for perfection.
The more success you have and the more money you make, the greater the pressure to keep up with that level of success. The hurdle of starting each subsequent project becomes unbearably high because it is set to an even higher level each time, based on the successes of your previous project.
7. You are future oriented.
If you keep your attention firmly on the future, you can act immediately as soon as you have an idea. But you rarely get slow enough to notice the effects of these déjà vu challenges that seem to keep popping up.
8. You don't need any help.
Well you don't need them. People are amazed at what you can do. You are one of the top performing people you know. And you definitely don't need any support. But you miss your own, very personal support team.
9. You seldom hear the "truth".
The further you develop, the more difficult it can be for you to open up to the people around you. And the more you grow, the harder it will be for you to find people who will tell you the truth. From the point of view of most of the people around you, you are perfect and not dependent on the truth. Or they think you have accomplished enough already.
Great people are great entrepreneurs
And there is greatness in everyone. I help people to recognize this and to live it - in life and in business.
If that sounds like you, let's talk and find out if a collaboration is a good fit.
