I see it every day - programs, some offered by very successful coaches, that promise you x-many steps to success. If you pay money into this or that program you will receive the PERFECT system to get everything you ever dreamed of.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Snake oil is an expression that originally referred to fraudulent health products or unproven medicine but has come to refer to any product with questionable or unverifiable quality or benefit. By extension, a snake oil salesman is someone who knowingly sells fraudulent goods or who is himself or herself a fraud, quack, charlatan, and the like.
I'm willing to go out on a limb here and tell you that the magic pill you're being sold isn't really all that magical. And it pisses me off when I see thousands of really cool people with amazing dreams and potential swallow the marketing being served.
See, I've seen the other side of the formula - every day I talk with people who feel like they suck and will never succeed because they are picking their way through all the training that these programs provide and they are failing… the 9-step formula to 7 figure income isn't working and they figure that it must be their fault.
I had a client who had spent upwards of $43,000 on programs and fancy masterminds and conferences. And in the first few sessions of working together we threw 95% of that into the trash and started retraining her brain to start trusting her intuition and following her own path to success. She filled up her program the instant she stopped believing in the magic pill and started believing in herself.
WE HAVE OUR OWN ANSWERS.
We know intuitively what needs to happen next to create what we are asking for. But we get distracted by empty promises and shiny quick fixes.
So I ask you - what is it you really want to create? What do you feel in your heart you are meant to do right now - in this very moment? What do the whispers in your soul tell you to do next?
I BEG you - please, please stop buying into the one-size-fits-all formula of building your business. You are unique and magical all on your own. You and the light you hold inside of you are all the formula you need to succeed.
