This has been going on forever, since advertising began, but I swear it’s getting worse. Everywhere I look I see people advertising quick fixes for almost anything you need, business or personal.
For instance, I’m shocked at the list of horrible side effects people are willing to endure to get a quick fix for one thing or another from a pill they can pop instead of changing a habit.
The simple fact is there is no magic bullet, but there are some core principles that if implemented fully into your life will make you feel like you do have that magic bullet.
It’s become a part of our society to treat the symptoms and never even take the time to uncover the cause, much less take responsibility for it or do anything constructive to change it.
In a real sense it’s true of weight problems, health issues, issues in personal relationships, addictions, money issues, lifestyle issues and certainly with business.
In business the quick fix is king. Why do you think the get rich quick pitch is perennially one of the biggest money makers for marketers, followed closely by the next tricked out tool that will, of course, make you rich right now?
I’m sure if you’ve been in business for any length of time you’ve heard someone say, “Sell them what they want, not what they need.”
Even seemingly intelligent people who know the quick fix isn’t going to happen will still buy it just in case this one is the real deal. I know I’ve done it. It’s human nature to not want to miss out on the next big thing.
But when you look inside yourself and take a deep breath and get centered and listen to your inner voice, you know none of it is true. The truth is, it all begins and ends with you.
So where do you start if you are ready to take responsibility for your life and create your future?
There are 4 core areas, or what I call core blueprints, that require your attention if you want to have a life that is in flow with your true passion and purpose. When you’ve created all 4 of your blueprints and you have all 4 of these areas functioning at a level that satisfies you, then your life will be more peaceful and effortless than you have ever imagined it could really be…
No magic bullet required!
In the next 4 weeks we will go in depth on each of these areas:
*Introspection and Discovery of Purpose
*Blueprinting the Life of Your Dreams
*Mentoring for Your Life and Your Business
Right now I’d like you to read each one of those 4 lines out loud and notice the feeling in your body when you say the words.
Do you tense up?
Does your stomach tighten?
Do your shoulders drop?
Do you take a relaxed breath?
How does your body instinctively react to the words when you read them out loud?
And yes, it does make a difference to say it out loud.
What thoughts pop into your mind?
What kind of pictures show up in your head?
These are all indications of where you instinctively feel good about where you’re at and where you know you need some help. If you pay close attention to your reaction you’ll also feel how much resistance you have to doing anything about your current situation in respect to that area of your life.
Isn’t it amazing how much information you can find out about yourself from verbalizing and then just being aware of your reaction?
Listen to what you really need and move toward those things first.
Next week we’ll go into Introspection and Discover of Purpose.
Until then, I’d love to hear your thoughts. Just comment on this post on my blog.
