I had a conversation with a client the other day that I’d been working with for a while. At the beginning he told me what he wanted to do in his business and what he wanted to see happen. He shared what he was working towards and what the big thing was that really motivated him.
However, I noticed as he was talking about this and as we’ve met the last couple of months, he seems to lack the real internal motivation, excitement, enthusiasm or passion to really make the commitment he needs in order to have the courage and capability to do what he needs to do to make that happen in his company.
So I stopped him and said — what do you want?
He said, you know what I want. It’s what we’ve been talking about. We’re going to do this and that, expand here and grow this, etc.
And I said no. What do you really want?
There was a long silence. He didn’t say anything and then he finally said, well, what I really want is for my leadership team to take more control and leading of our company employees and own that process.
And I said to him. Okay, what do you really, really want?
Then he said to me he wants to have time and money from the business, to start to invest in his marriage and his kids, and in some other areas of his life for the first time in 15 years. And that’s what he really, really, really wants.
So my question to you today is, what have you been telling yourself and other people that you really want? And then, have you actually stopped and been honest and truthful with yourself about what you want out of your business? How about what you want out of your business, your life, out of anything and everything?
That’s my big question to you today. Not the first answer, not the second answer, and not necessarily even the third — but the third answer is probably closer to the truth of what you really, really want out of your life!
