The “I-don’t-know” mantra

i-dont-know mantra

The easiest way to recognize that you are stuck is when you hear yourself waying: “I don’t know”. And for most people this is frightening.

Fears – Usually when we are so terrified to make a mistake and take the wrong path we tell ourselves that we don’t know. The more scared we are the more we tell ourselves that we don’t know and the more we tell ourselves this the more we are re-inforcing the panic until this panic seizes completely and at the end we do really make the wrong decision. Why? Because we couldn’t see things clear. Because we were afraid. I don’t know is a dead-end street. It gives birth to more I-don’t-knows and more confusion for most people. Until it’s understood…

Feelings – In it’s essence, it takes a lot of courage to say to yourself : I don’t know. It shows quite a few things – that you are honest with yourself, that you are actually open for suggestions, to fill in this I-don’t-know with images, sensations, actions steps, plans. And, this is the real face of the fear. You are afraid more to face that you are completely honest with yourself than to face that you are at a dead end. Why? Because you don’t trust yourself and you are not confident that if you don’t know – that is very natural state. A state of mind that brings curiosity to explore, to find out, to know. And this state is called Pre-thinking state. The time and place before the thinking actually happens.

Facts – Next time, when you honestly and truly don’t know, ask yourself – What would you do if you did know? How would it feel? How would it look like? Creating your own reality is the most exciting application of the human mind. You are what you think you are, you are what your thoughts are. Thus, Cogito, egro sum. Just imagine your brain like a gigantic search engine. You type in whatever you are looking for as an answer and look for results. If there are no results – you read the message : No results found and read out loud to yourself: I don’t know the answer. Naturally. But, since YOU are theis search engine and you are also performing the searches, the next thing that happens is (of course if you don’t give up the quest at all by being too panicked by the “no results found” trap) you get into your search engine hat and you start creating new scripts, and new images, and new links in your brain, you maximize and optimize allthat and sooner of later you do the search again. You type in the same key words, the same questions. But this time – you do have “results found”.

This is how our brain operates. And as soon as we recognize that if we don’t know that’s just perfect, we become unstoppable in whatever we wish to accomplish. Because we know that the real meaning of I don’t know is – Let me start creating the “I know” NOW.

How to write an Elevator Speech

“If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” – Coachfucious

The first and foremost thing you need to do is be ready and ably to sell your product or service in a snapshot. In order to get he clients you are looking for you absolutely need to be prepared to meet with your clients wherever they are and whatever they do. What will set you apart from all the rest of the people in your business is the MANTRA that you will sing to enchant your clients and get them close to you.

This mantra identifies who you are, what you do and why your client will choose you over all the others on the market and is most commonly known as elevator speech.

Before we create one, we will go though the brainstorming process.

There are a couple of tough questions that can be answered before we roll up our sleeves and start creating our client magnet.

1. Who am I? In what capacity I want to serve you?

2. What business I am in? What results do my business promise to you as a client?

3. Who is my client? How does he look like?

4. What makes me different from the competition? Why should the client do business with me?

5. What are the benefits of my customer when buying my product / services?

Those questions when systemized don’t look as if they will come out of the page and bite you but when you think about it 90% of the time to come up with ideas is very difficult. Usually this uneasiness to decide on the right answers for you and your business springs from the fact that most of us consciously or not are employees in their business and being an owner of a business is just that – being employed by yourself to perform the job task- owner.

The way to go out of this trap where you end up employing yourself and go into the thinking hat that is only concerned with how to elevate your business the answers will start flowing to you.

Whenever you are ready with our own answers to the clarification questions, you can start writing your elevator speech. This speech you will be able to say wherever you go whatever you do and you will be able to sell your product or service in 30 seconds. And I will show example with my own elevator speech.

1. For whom are you offering your product / service? Who is your client?

Your sentence will start with “for” as in:

“For unstoppably determined people”

2. What is it that your customer wants / needs and you are offering?

Your sentence will start with “who” as in:

“Who want to live with passion and be financially independent”

3. What product or service you are offering?

Your sentence will start with “the” as in:

“The Life and Money Coaching of Tsvetanka (Sue) Petrova”

4. What category does your product or service satisfy?

Your sentence will start with “is a” as in:

“Is a walk through into the world of achieving your goals”

5. What is the benefit that your client will receive when buying your product / service?

Your sentence wil lstart with “that” as in:

“That is low cost and at the same time high in value because”

6. Who are your competitors and why you are better than them?

Your sentence will start with “unlike” as in:

Unlike others I walk the walk and talk the talk.

7. What is the single most important thing that sets you apart form the competition?

Your sentence will start with “our” as in:

“Our coaching reframes circumstances and life situations into possibilities and I help my clients turn those possibilities into opportunities.”

The most important step is as soon as you have your MANTRA ready chant it as much as possible to as many people as possible and then just happily receive all the goodness the powerful mantra tnhat you just created can bring into your business life.

Here is how mine looks like:

DREAM BIG is for unstoppably determined people who want to live with passion and be financially independent.

The Life and Money Coaching of Tsvetanka (Sue) Petrova is a walk through into the world of achieving your goals that is:

-low cost (until she graduates from ICA )

-and at the same time high in value (she is attending in addition to her classes four (4) coaching practices – Life Coaching, Spiritual Coaching, Business Coaching and Executive Coaching)

Unlike other coaches she walks the talk.

Sue’s Life and Money Coaching reframes circumstances and life situations into possibilities and she helps her clients turn those possibilities into opportunities.
