Hey, you guys, Dino Gomez here and you are listening to the Secrets of Coaching podcast, where we break down the nuances of growing a seven figure online coaching business. And we are about to get started in 3 2 1.

 

Have you ever thought to yourself, how in the world do they have better results than me? I’m so much better at XYZ than them.

 

How are they beating me? This is not fair. I have heard this and I see this online and on social media consistently. And I’m going to break this down. Why?

 

This is actually the best opportunity in the world for you. If you ever feel like and are thinking to yourself, how do they have that result when I deserve that result more, here’s precisely what you should do. Let’s get into it. It was interesting. I was talking to a client the other day and they’re doing really well.

 

And so they were curious. They’re like, do you know, how is that other person doing better than me?

 

Using power questions to help our clients work through different things? Because ultimately, normally the answer exists within you. You just haven’t asked yourself the right questions or taken the right frame on a particular situation. So they asked me the question, do you know, how are they doing better than me? What are they doing?

 

I feel like I’m personally stronger at this particular thing than they are, but they have the results that I desire. I like my progress, but they have the results that I desire. What’s the difference now? That is a normal human thought process and or emotion initially until you understand conceptually the opportunity here. All right, so if you’re looking around and this often happens with newer entrepreneurs, maybe you’ve been in the space a year, maybe two years, and then somebody comes into the space and they’ve been online for like two months, and all of a sudden they have the results that you want in two months.

 

And you’re like, how did that happen? I’ve been grinding at this for two years. They’ve been online for two months. They have the results that I want, and I have more experience than them having been here for two years, how is this even possible? And so forth.

 

And normally when that happens, that’s like a negative state of energy. That’s a comparison which you do not ever want to do. It is normal. We all do it right. But you want to catch yourself when that happens.

 

Like you want to snap your fingers and be like, no, not comparing myself to someone else, right? Only compare yourself to yourself because everybody has different resources, different previous experiences and different life scenarios and so forth. For example, somebody could have been a sales rep for ten years and you’re wondering, how do they just start their online business? And they’ve already closed so many clients, they might have just started their online business. But for ten years, they were practicing the art of sales.

 

So it’s going to be easy for them to close clients. They’ve been doing this actually over ten years. And you’ve actually only been doing this two years. Right. But you don’t look at the backstory, you don’t look at resources that they have that you might not have.

 

There’s all these different factors. Right. So you have your advantages as well. With every perceived disadvantage. There is an advantage.

 

But that’s one reason why. All right. Now when you find yourself going, how do they have the results that I want? And I feel like I am better than them. When you say that to yourself, catch yourself, snap your fingers, and then just be like, good.

 

Now I’m ready to actually play at my full potential because when you say they have the results that I want, but I am better than them at a particular craft. What you are saying essentially is that I have the ability to outperform them and get even better results than them. I’ve just decided not to play the game yet. That is the opportunity there from a mindset perspective. Because you are literally affirming that to yourself.

 

Right. Why do they have better results than you? Probably if they’re not as good at the craft, whatever that might be, they probably have better results because they’re implementing better than you are at that craft. Right. And so you’re playing at 10%, they’re playing at 70%.

 

If you actually played at 100%, you would probably smash them. Right. This is an opportunity. Whenever you feel that way, rather than get upset or frustrated or confused or anything else, just be like, good.

 

I’m not even playing at my max. I’m not even going full speed. And I need to identify why. That’s the next question. Why am I not playing at 100%?

 

What do I need to change so that I play at 100% so that I get the results that obviously the market always tells like, this speaks the truth. So as long as you find a way to play, you’re 100% and you truly are better than them at the craft you say that you’re discussing, then you will ultimately come out on top. That’s it. So it’s an opportunity. It is an opportunity.

 

And so again, rhetorically, I was speaking to this client and they’re like, no, I know I’m better at them than this. I just don’t understand, like, why I’m not getting the results. They’re simple. If they’re not as good as you know, they’re just implementing more, they’re taking more imperfect action. That’s really essentially it you can be the best basketball player in the world.

 

Leave it to me to go to a sports example. Right. But you can be the best basketball player in the world. But if you don’t shoot the ball, you’re not going to score any points. Therefore, somebody who’s a terrible basketball player, if they come on the court and they take 100 shots.

 

One of them is probably going to go in. They’ll have two points. You’ll have zero. That’s just it, right? So next time you feel that way, right, helping you overcome a limiting belief, it’s just that you’re not accessing your full potential and you’re probably not taking the right action and it’s probably this your mindset and I know it’s your mindset because we’re discussing this again.

 

I wanted to follow this one up to the previous episode of why I pay my mindset coach $16,000 a year. It’s for this precise reason, right? Obviously, for sure there’s going to be something on the strategy and implementation side, but it’s probably that their mindset is stronger than yours around a particular topic in this moment in time, not forever, but in this moment of time. And therefore that is why you are better than them. But they are getting better results than you, right?

 

So it’s your mindset, right? And so think about that one for a moment. Sit down with that one for a moment. Ask yourself take out a pen and paper and write down and ask yourself where am I not showing up 100%? Because that’s most likely.

 

And why am I not showing up 100%? Tackle those things. You will begin to show up 100%. It’s only a matter of time before you will pass the individual who you are more talented than in this regard. All right, so short episode one to get that one out because I think that one is so fascinating by mere concept of you asking that question.

 

It is a mindset related issue. Why are they getting better results than me if I am more talented? That’s a mindset issue. And so it might not seem like it, but it’s precisely what that is. All right, so hope this was helpful, guys.

 

We will see you in the next episode.

Hey, you guys, Dino Gomez here and you are listening to the Secrets of Coaching podcast, where we break down the nuances of growing a seven figure online coaching business. And we are about to get started in 3 2 1.

In today’s episode, we are going to talk about doubling down on success and how to be more consistent, which is one of the most difficult things to do. This is going to be a great episode, guys. Let’s dive into all right, guys. So at the time of this recording, it is Sunday here. And no matter what day of the week, you are listening to this. Happy Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday to you hope it’s just going to be a killer and amazing day for you. I want to talk about something really interesting concept I heard recently, and it makes complete sense because I was reflecting on it myself. But the topic here is how to double down on your success to grow your business. Right. So here’s what often happens is that you have different strengths and weaknesses. And this is something that we work on quite a bit with our clients is helping them to self identify what are their strengths and weaknesses so that they can leverage more of what they are good at and then simultaneously in their free time, work on developing around the areas where they might consider themselves to be a little bit weaker.

And this is such an important one because here’s where I think this gets really interesting conceptually is that let’s just say you are a really good email marketer. Like you’re great at writing emails, engaging emails. You have a high open rate, a high click through rate. People love your emails. They look forward to your emails. That might be a strong suit, a strength that you have. All right. You could also be a great copywriter. You could be great at sales. You might be very charismatic and you’re great on video. There’s all these different skill sets that you can have. You might be just a great coach that’s very relatable to your clients. And you’re able to explain things conceptually to your clients where they’re able to understand more difficult concepts because you’re able to maybe articulate and explain those difficult concepts better than others would be able to. There’s all these different skill set that you can have. Now, here’s where it’s interesting is whatever you are naturally strong at whatever is a strength for you, you should be doing more of that because you have an unfair advantage there. All right. So guess what?

If you’re really good at sales, what you should probably be doing is more sales because you have an unfair advantage there. Right? A lot of people are not afraid to sell. Some people are just average at sales. If you have a very high industry close rate, you should be doing more sales. And raising your prices because you’re able to close clients at a premium rate and you’re able to close them consistently. Right. That’s something you should be doing more of because it’s an unfair advantage. And that kind of makes sense, right? Do more of the things wherever your unfair advantage is. Do more of that. If you’re really great on video, guess what? You should be doing more of video because a lot of people are too afraid to get on video or they’re not that exciting on video. And people don’t like watching more than 5 seconds of them. If you’re able to hold somebody’s attention for a long time on video because you’re just so entertaining and articulate and charismatic and all the things, guess what? Use that unfair advantage. Do more and more and more video because that’s your advantage. Right. It’s so interesting, this concept because what ends up happening is whatever your strengths are innately, that thing comes easy to you.

You might just be a great writer. That’s just a skill of yours, right? You’re just great at copywriting, you’re great at telling stories, and you have a lot of interesting stories that comes easy to you. And when something comes easy to us, we normally write it off we go, this is too easy. Anything that’s easy for the mind becomes boring. And so it’s not as exciting to us because it’s so easy. And so we just assume sometimes subconsciously that like, hey, everybody is a good writer, or hey, I would imagine everybody has an 80% close rate. Sales has always been easy for me, and it’s not for everybody. Everybody has their strengths and weaknesses. And so because our one strength area of strength comes easy to us, what tends to happen sometimes is that we stop doing it because we go, oh, let me just go learn this new fancy cool thing because I’m unfamiliar with that and we stopped doing the thing that is our unfair advantage when we should be doubling down on doing it just because it comes so easy to us. Right? So if you’re wondering what’s a really fast and easy way to grow your business, we’ll find out what your strengths are and then do more of that because that’s your unfair advantage.

 

And it might be super easy for you. It might even be kind of boring for you because it comes so naturally to you. But that’s your unfair advantage. So why not have an easy way to grow your business, right? Oftentimes we try to over complicate things. It can be as easy as that. Hey, I’m really good at sales. You know what I’m going to do? I’m going to take more sales calls and we’re going to raise our prices because we’re so good at closing. Right. And so that I just find super interesting. And so, again, as a reminder, if you’re sitting here trying to figure out what’s a fast way for me to grow my business. Figure out what your strengths are, start doing. Doubling down on your strengths. That does not mean you do not look to develop other skill sets and other things but after you have doubled down on your strengths doing those, whatever time is left over you can put towards developing complementary skill sets that are just going to make you even more valuable in the marketplace. All right, you still want to grow in other areas but that comes after you’re doubling down on putting more time into what you’re strong around because that’s ultimately what’s going to move the needle for your business right now.

So that’s what I have for you guys today. I thought that one was super interesting. I was thinking back on that and I was like you know what, we’re not sending enough emails and we have a lot of people that say they love opening our emails and they appreciate the value that comes from our emails and they look forward to the emails and they like the stories and the emails and then every now and then I find myself falling out of the routine of writing more emails because it just comes easy to me so I’m like we don’t need more emails and it’s an unfair advantage for us. We really should be writing new emails consistently because it comes so easy to us. It is an unfair advantage so I wanted to share that with you guys there super interesting and again that’s a great way for you to quickly and easily grow your business. It does not have to be challenging. It can be easy. Alright. So hope that’s helpful guys put that into action. We’ll see you guys in the next episode.
