Business Coaching for Success

Stuck In a Rut!

20th September 2016

Recently I have been calling old leads, who I either called or met sometimes up to 2 or even 3 years ago. These are people who showed a lot of interest in the coaching programme, and who said they wanted to go ahead, but not right now. I always warn these people that delaying the start is probably not a good idea, but they are convinced that they can straighten out one or two things first, and will then be in a far better place to use my services. The sentiment is entirely understandable, but seldom justified.

So I will agree to call them a couple of months later, and of course nothing has changed, and so on and so on, until I start to point out that in fact I have been chasing them for 2 or even 3 years, and nothing has changed to any significant level.

I recently had two meetings with new prospects who both used this excuse not to start straight away, and even though they agreed that the chances are in a year’s time nothing will have improved, they still procrastinate and delay the start date. Of course I understand that some people are worried about paying out money for an intangible, but these are business owners who by their own admission acknowledge that their business is not under control, they are not moving forward, and they are not making the money that they want to be making.

So if you are stuck in a rut, frustrated with your business, and wondering what you should be doing next why not contact a business coach. However, before you do so, be sure that is what you want, and that you are prepared to let someone come into your business and your life.

If not you will be just another business owner who wondered if things could be better, but who wasn’t prepared to do anything about it.
