Don’t kid yourself…you’re blocking your own success

I had a conversation this week with someone who was banging on and on ad nauseum about how difficult their life is…how hard they have to work and how poor their results are.  It’s not the first conversation we’ve had like that, in fact, truth be told, I’ve been listening to the same story for nearly 18 months.

I used to offer suggestions and make recommendations for how they could move on from their frustrating and xxxxxxx existence.  I used to be passionate about wanting to help them, knowing that I had the knowledge and experience to do so, and sharing it generously.  I used to believe that they wanted to have a simpler life…to work less and make more money.

I don’t anymore.

Now I know that they are in love with their stories and excuses around why they are not doing well…they’ve trotted them out for so long that they believe in them totally.  They kid themselves that their miserable existence is nothing to do with them…that it’s their prospects, their competitors, the universe conspiring against them.

Others in their field are doing well because they ‘have more contacts’, they ‘xxxxxx, they ‘xxxxxxx  Customers don’t buy from them because they ‘don’t understand’, ‘don’t see the need’, ‘don’t have the money’.

And they in turn won’t invest in the sort of one on one help that they need to push them past this.
