this is hard
Have you ever tried to do something new and felt like you were pushing a rope?
At times, that’s what it feels like working with executives and sales associates. They desperately want to have vision. The only problem is that they don’t want to go through the work to get there.
Before you can really have vision, you first have to determine that you’re blind. We ALL have blindness in our lives. But, it’s hard to admit it. Once you do admit that you have blindness you’ll start to see what you’ve been missing.
It’s hard to explain unless you’ve had a similar experience. For me it took physical blindness to show me my mental blindness. It even took a brain surgeon to reveal my blindness.
Just saying the words, “I’m blind” doesn’t make it happen. It takes hours, days, weeks. Who knows, it may even take years for some to determine that they’re blind.
Once they do, that’s where they can start to have change. You can’t change the world until you change yourself.
Most people get lost in this process, because they lack focus. They get lost because they just want to have the end goal. They just want to have be done. They want to have vision.
The problem is that we can’t until we’ve come to the realization that we’re blind.
