Imagine a cup that represents your internal energy. When your cup is full, even overflowing at times, you feel confident and focused; you’re in the zone. You have so much to give to your clients, your business and your circle of influence.
Now imagine your cup springing a leak. As the energy slowly drains out, you struggle to keep it full. It gets harder and harder to pour energy into your business and the people around you. You feel much less vibrant, and you enjoy your activities less. Things become a struggle when there is less energy to go around.
This cup represents not only your energy but your ability to achieve success. It’s not just imaginary; it is a very real part of your life as an entrepreneur. So, if you want to be successful, you have to ask yourself:
- How do I need to design my business so that my cup stays full?
- How can I market my business in a way that keeps me energetic and passionate?
These are very important questions, because in the coaching industry, we’re not selling a product; we are marketing ourselves. It’s personal, very personal. We’re asking people to invest in us. This can be an intimidating thing to do. It’s a high-stakes proposition, and it can bring out our inner gremlins – self-doubt and insecurities. As we go about building our business and coaching others, we want to be engaged in activities that feel natural and effortless, so our inner light can shine and people can experience our brilliance, not our fears.
