If you've been to one of my Inner Circle Mastermind retreats in Laguna Beach, California, you'll know that one of the subjects we talk about is how to make this year your breakthrough year. But if you haven't been able to make it along to a retreat yet, don't worry - just read on to find out what we discussed and get my advice on how to make sure that a year from now, you'll be looking back with amazement at all you've achieved over the course of just 12 months.
There is one particular theme that always comes up during the Inner Circle Mastermind retreat, when we take part in events such as hot seats, coaching from high-level entrepreneurs and networking. This is the breakdown that a lot of people have as soon as they move from the "what" to the "how." It's when they get distracted from their aim by thinking too much about how to achieve it that they halt their own progress.
I always advise people who are struggling with this kind of breakdown that you need to focus on thinking about exactly what you want and continue thinking about this until you get to the point where you are really excited about your vision and fully motivated to achieve it. You need to think about what you want to do, what you want to have, what you want to experience and what you want to accomplish. Once you've got to that point, your brain's automatic next step is to start thinking about how you're going to do it, and this is the moment where you are actually going wrong.
The moment you start thinking about the "how" instead of the "what," your brain goes into overdrive. Naturally, you won't have the answer to the question of how to achieve your goal immediately, and this makes you start to question your ability to achieve it at all. You start thinking things like: "maybe I can't do this," "maybe I don't know how to do this," "maybe I'm not good enough to do this," "maybe I don't have the experience to do this," "who am I to actually do this?"
Here's how I advise people to overcome this problem:
Think deeply about what it is you want and, just for a moment, forget about the "how." Let go of that feeling that you need to have all the answers right away because this is distracting you from gaining true clarity on what you actually want. Stop thinking that you need to have every step in your journey figured out right away before you even take the first step.
This will seem crazy to some people, but this is what I do, and this is what will make you a real entrepreneur. I like to jump and build my wings on the way down. It's gotten me this far, and that's why I want to encourage you to do the same.
This is the only way to accomplish something that you might otherwise believe is impossible. In summary, let go of the "how" and focus on the solution, the outcome, the thing that you want.
