So there’s this woman I know.
She’s stuck in her business.
For the past few years, she’s made about $300k, give or take.
And she’s stuck there.
Not for lack of trying, mind you.
But as I look at her today, I can see the exact reason that she’s stuck …
It’s in the questions she asks.
Here’s what I mean:
Think about the questions you’re asking right now.
- How much should I charge for this?
- What tool do I use for that?
- How do I get more leads?
- What emails go in my funnel?
- What should I call this product?
- Who do I need to hire?
- Do I have the right words on my sales page?
- Do I need a different product?
- Should I shift what I sell and how I sell it?
Now, here’s the important part:
Are those the same questions you were asking a month ago … three months ago … a year ago … three years ago?
Because if they are then … is it really any surprise you are stuck?
If you’re still trying to solve the same problems and answer the same questions …
Why would you expect to be in a different place?
Remember the saying:
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.
Well, asking the same questions over and over is a form of doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results!
Here’s another example:
(And proof that we ALL do this)
I spent the better part of this year trying to figure out how to get more qualified leads into my business. The question I kept asking was, “how do I get more leads? how do I get more leads? how do I get more leads?”
And guess what?
I got stuck.
Until I realized that this is exactly what I had been doing.
I was just asking the same question over and over and over again. Solving the same problem over and over again. It’s no wonder I wasn’t moving forward—I was stuck asking and answering the same things!
And guess what?
As soon as I started asking different questions, I got unstuck.
So here’s the deal:
You can keep going back to questions you’ve been asking; you can keep trying to solve problems you know how to solve.
You can create new programs, you can hire and fire VAs, you can add more bonuses to entice buyers, you can build and rebuild your funnel, you can mess with your business model, you can do whatever it is and answer whatever questions that you have been doing for the past however long …
And you will stay exactly where you are.
OR you can decide to ask NEW questions and solve NEW problems — questions you’ve never asked before, and problems you don’t know HOW to solve — and you can grow into a whole new level of being.
It’s your choice:
Keep asking the same old questions you’ve been asking for the past however many years, hoping that this time you’ll find the magic answer that will change things …
Or start asking new questions. Solve new problems. And start moving forward again.
