Which Investing Mindset Are You?
When we get lost in a car, we take steps to find our way home. Whether it be using the SatNav or Google Maps, calling a friend, asking for directions or buying a map (a bit old school!).
But for some reason, when we feel lost in our business, we feel like we just need to "work it out" ourselves.
Taking the step to invest in a coach or mentor can be a huge decision and one that we can um and ah over for months, even years.
It takes courage to admit that you need help and even more courage to actually reach out to someone and ask for that help.
Here's the top three investing mindsets I see in my clients (PS. None are right or wrong, this is about self-awareness and identifying where you are in your own business journey!)
They reach out, ask the questions and you can tell they really want to move forward with you but they stop themselves (for any number of reasons!). It's a case of wanting vs trusting.
"I’ll give it a bit longer."
"Maybe I need more time to think."
"Next time I’ll be in a better position."
The Bit by Bit
They know they're ready but it's the investment they're scared of. They will invest but slowly.
"I think I’ll look for something cheaper."
"I’m not sure I’m ready for this leap."
"I know the value but I keep focussing on the price."
The Race Car
The name is self-explanatory. There's no more questioning or doubt. They are ready to go ALL in.
"I’ve tried doing a little but then get little."
"I feel like I’ve stopped myself too many times."
"I realize why the value is what it is now and I don’t want to keep waiting."
Investing in support doesn't necessarily mean money either. It could simply mean time, energy, attention or love. Think of it as the GPS to your next level (plus imagine how much time you'll save by not getting lost along the way!)
