“You are not The One.”
Not special. Not magical.
Remember when the Oracle told Neo he wasn’t The One in The Matrix? How crushed he was?
Then remember how Neo went on to beat the machines in round 1?
The Oracle didn’t tell Neo what he wanted to hear. She wasn’t whispering sweet nothings into his ear.
She told him exactly what he needed to hear.
We need more Oracles in business…
When I wander in and out of most Facebook groups and networking groups, I see crowds of people all patting each other on the back.
All handing out group hugs and validating everything each other says, regardless of facts or reality because they’re more concerned with being liked and seen as “a guru” than making a difference.
Oh there are some notable exceptions — but mostly they’re full of empty motivational crap and bad advice.
Everyone telling each other what they want to hear, not what they need to hear. Screaming sweet nothings into each others’ greedy little ears.
Without exception, all my biggest breakthroughs — in life and in business — have come after I’ve had to hear and digest something painful. Something I didn’t want to hear.
So here’s today’s uncomfortable truth. Most people know this, but ignore it because it’s easier to carry on doing the easy, ineffective thing. Will you?
If you need to see big changes in your business, you need to make big changes in what you’re doing.
Want ordinary results? Carry on.
Want extraordinary results? Better than you’ve got before? Better than your competitors are getting?
Put yourself in a place where you’ll hear the things you need to hear. And start doing the things you need to do.
It’s already June. How long have you been waiting for things to change in your business?
Stop listening to sweet nothings and start changing your business for the better here:
