Most of the people who fail to get what they want would rather “slow down” and “keep to basic” rather than trying all out to make it happen. They put a reverse gear in their life and they have the fear of “commit” to something that they can’t do. In short, they surrender to fast without knowing that there are tools and people who can help him to get what he wants.
One of the reasons is that they “think” they have try all what is possible of doing. They also “think” that they have learned everything about his success. Thus, they have a tendency to reject whatever guidance and support that may be rendered upon them. They thought that they are the master in his industrial and he has walk through all the up and down in life. The ego inside him make him “a full cup of water” and not ready for any input, especially people who do not know anything about his expertise.
This is a pitfall of success. They thought only “Master of his industrial” can only help them. They do not aware that “simple ideas” from people who is not in his field would be able to open up his “mental brake”. The following case study might be helpful to you.
During the Board Of Directors of a toothpaste company marketing meeting, they brainstorm and discuss on how to improve their market share. They talk about packaging, customer service, pricing, marketing strategy, promotional tools ect. After few days of brainstorming and discussion, a tea lady say to them, “I have been here listening to all your wonderful ideas; can I also contribute my idea?” One the directors look at her and say “Don’t waste your time, you are not an expert in this business.” Anyhow, another director says “Why don’t give her a chance”. The tea lady than say “Well, you can make the toothpaste opener a little bigger, than the user will use more. If you double the size, the market will surely double too”. All the directors are amazed by the ideas. In fact, this is the number one formula that is being executed after the marketing meeting.
Your mentor and your coach might not be the expertise in your field, but they are able to lead you to think “out of your box” You will soon discover that one simple idea will give you a million dollar value in return.
Open up yourself. Don’t ever look down at ideas from strangers, from people who are not as wealthy as you, from people who are outclass or people you do not like. They might change your life and give you the next Million Dollar success.
People who are expert in certain field can be easily locked up by certain career pattern and they fail to think “out of the box”. Sometimes, talking to people who are not in his line might be able to give a different insight about what he has been doing so far.
