On the Mats: Business Next Level – What’s Stopping You?
So what could be stopping you from taking yourself to the next level of business? Come on this journey and let’s go and find out.
Hi guys, Nathan McDonald here for another awesome On the Mats episode and today we’re going to talk about getting you to the next level of business. What does that mean? What levels are we talking about? Well guys, if you remember a few weeks ago an On the Mats episode where we talked about the four different levels from comfort to struggle leverage. This is what we’re talking about, but what could be stopping you.
And the reason we’re talking about this today is because I got asked this question by a very good business associate and he asked the question “What stops people from getting to the next level?”
So what I did, is I had to sit down and think about it slightly and I had to go “Wow, that’s a really good question”. So I came up with three main points that we need to have a look at.
So point number one, the thing we find that people don’t move onto the next level is because there’s too much emotion involved in their business; it’s their little baby. And reality is you don’t want to take major risks with your babies, do you? If you had kids you don’t want to go and risk life and limb with them. And reality is people treat their business that way as well, they don’t want to take the risk, they want to stay comfortable, they want to stay safe and secure. And reality is that’s all emotion. Sometimes you need to take risk in business and remove the emotion, you’ve got to realize business is just purely an asset, and that’s all business is.
Point number two. Who’s the control freak watching this video? Raise your hand, or even better still why don’t you go and smack the light button if you’re in YouTube. But, control freak, you’re actually smothering your business, you’re not allowing people to come in and help, you don’t know what you don’t know, so reality is you need people out there to help you get where you need to. And one of the things we want to have a look at is being able to stop that control freakiness, stop smothering your business. That is one of the main reasons you may not be getting to the next level.
But friend, I mentioned this in point number two, you don’t know what you don’t know. I’m sitting here at the moment in a video workshop with all the people who want to know how to video workshop, on how to actually create these simple videos that I’m doing here today. And one of the points is I showed them how to actually get an animation logo done for five dollars, that’s it. Most people pay a lot of money, most people don’t know what they don’t know. So all of a sudden you’ve got to bridge that gap of the information to get you to the next level.
What are the points to get you to the next level? For instance if you looked at where you’re at the moment, you might need some better marketing. What is the right marketing? Do you know what the right marketing is? Who can you find to help you with putting the right marketing in place?
So guys this could be really stopping you guys from getting to the next level. You’ve got to know what you don’t know. My recommendation is go and seek out people to help you actually get there.
So guys are you looking at any of those points? Have you got too much emotion? Are you being a control freak? And are you actually bridging that gap of knowledge of what you don’t know?
