There comes a certain point in business where you feel like you’re on top of the world!
Ironically, this feeling sets in just when you’re actually not doing so well.
Sure, you’ve convinced yourself you are doing everything possible to grow your Dream Business and everything is on the right track.
But caution – you can’t see what’s hovering in your blind spot!
Keep on your current path and you may wreck.
Then you’ll ask, “why didn’t I see this coming?”
Remember always: just when you’re hot, you’re not.
In the times of yore, every ruler had a commoner in their court who wasn’t a member of the nobility.
This commoner lived among the people, seeing firsthand their problems as well as their successes.
The only job this commoner had was to tell the ruler the truth about his subjects.
They would gather information and candidly share it with the ruler.
A wise ruler heeded this information and acted upon it.
Not only that, but some rulers go undercover themselves, even in modern times.
This story tells us about life, and is even more important in business.
As a Dream Business entrepreneur, there are situations where your tunnel vision will blind you from the challenges that you face, or the situation as it really is on the ground.
This is why as an entrepreneur, it is important that you invest in a business coach.
This coach is separate from the business – and for that reason is ideally suited to call you out when you need it.
One of the best testimonials I have received on my own coaching is from a client who shares that I often tell him what he already knows.
The issue is, because he’s in the darkness of the tunnel, he can’t see what I see as I look into the tunnel while standing out in the light!
Every so often, when you are faced with a dilemma, you will need someone who can give you a true evaluation of the scenario and “shock you back to reality”.
Whether you are doing well in business or not, your business coach not only helps you grow your business, but also grow yourself as an individual so that you’re better able to grow your business into a Dream Business.
The anecdote of the Ruler and the Commoner shows you the benefit of having a business coach.
A business coach works as a “truthsayer” in the business world.
They will bring you out of your cocoon so that you can see the direction you are taking, and how it is impacting you and your Dream Business.
This makes you focus on the things that will help you grow the Dream Business that you truly desire.
You are the Ruler of your Dream Business – avoid the common mistake of going it alone.
Going back to what I said at the beginning, “just when you’re hot, you’re not.”
When is now the best time to find out what’s in your blind spot?
I’ll bet today’s lunch money I can find it within 10 minutes, and that in just 5 additional minutes we can get started on a plan together.
