“Patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.” Napoleon Hill
I know there is something that you really want right now.
To launch your podcast.
To launch an online course.
To fill your mastermind.
A partnership with a fabulous company.
To travel the world.
What I also know is this: there is always a way.
It’s very easy to give up at the first roadblock or disappointment.
Many give up even before they get started.
I’ve seen it all in my role as coach, teacher, guide, truth-teller.
Persistence is the key.
As a producer of conferences back in my corporate days, I used to create conferences with up to 100 speakers over a 3-day period.
To get that number of speakers to commit, I’d need to invite around 500 to speak.
I didn’t pay these speakers, nor their travel expenses. (I did have a budget for some big-name professional keynote speakers – those were a different story.)
So all I had to go on was my ambition and the ambition of those whom I was inviting – because I knew the speaking engagement would be a boon for their career.
Still – 100 speakers was TOUGH to pull off. Especially because I needed a commitment about 6 months prior to the conference. And I needed a written description of what they’d talk about (I usually crafted this for them and got their approval).
My mantra: walk the fine line between persistence and annoyance.
It was my job to pull this off.
And I wouldn’t let anything stop me.
Because there was always a way to create an amazing finished product. There was always a way to top what I had done the year prior.
My hunger and curiosity fueled me.
As a result, I was one of the most profitable producers on my team … and I received a cut of profits from my conferences.
I’m thankful for that job because it taught me how to financially think like an entrepreneur (how will this decision impact the bottom line?).
“Ambition is the path to success. Persistence is the vehicle you arrive in.” – Bill Bradley
How about you?
What moment from your past has paved the way for this very moment in time?
When have you proven that you have what it takes to rise above ANY obstacle that comes into your path?
Don’t sell yourself short here.
I know you’re something fierce. Because you’re listening to this podcast.
Listen – there will ALWAYS be roadblocks on your journey as you build your business.
And I’ve found that success often comes with twists and turns. It’s rarely a straight line. It’s rarely without challenges … or a few surprises.
Such is life.
Such is the beauty of life.
I was reminded of this over the past few weeks during the launch of my mastermind GLOW.
Although this was my 6th time leading a mastermind, I’ve always found the enrollment process to be an interesting time.
It has never gone the exact way I think it will. In the moment, this can feel terrifying. But when you look back, it’s actually hilarious … and totally makes sense.
You truly have to trust the divinity of it all. You MUST have faith that it’s ALL WORKING OUT even better than you can imagine.
And you have to commit to being a leader during the enrollment process.
You also must know that there are a lot of emotions at play, especially when you launch a high-level mastermind.
Because when you are making an invitation for a high-ticket experience … this is when even the most confident candidates FREAK OUT.
Many disqualify themselves straight out the gate and don’t even apply.
Others apply and then don’t take the next step to book a conversation with me.
A handful give you a verbal commitment and say “Yes, I’m moving forward,” and then fall off the face of the Earth.
And then the right people who are meant to be in this sacred container, at this exact moment in time apply, say yes, and commit.
Having enrollment conversations with prospects who see the value of what you offer is so, so fun.
There’s no selling involved.
Simply two wise souls saying: “You’re the answer to my prayers. Let’s do this, together.”
Enrollment conversations have led to HUGE paydays for my company … as well as the opportunity to help our beautiful clients GROW (that’s our mission!).
In fact, enrollment conversations are a big factor why company sales are up 74% this year as compared to this time last year.
I’m reminded of this every time I log into our CRM system. This percentage continues to increase as we tighten up our operation and HELP MORE PEOPLE.
If you’re a coach, creative or healer and want help closing more sales through enrollment conversations, you DEFINITELY want to come to my online workshop on this. You can sign up at http://JennyFenig.com/sales.
When you BELIEVE that there is ALWAYS A WAY to do, be and have anything you want, then you will attract prospects, partners and friends who vibe the same way.
And this is a good thing.
Don’t give up on your dreams.
They were entrusted to you for a reason.
Funny – as I was preparing today’s episode, I got an email from The Universe (also known as the good people at http://Tut.com).
Here’s what it said:
Even funnier was the fact that I took my sons bowling yesterday! I haven’t done that in a long time so this email really cracked me up!
The point: don’t compromise your vision, your values, your dreams. There is always a way.
You can find the money.
You can find the solution.
You can attract the clients.
You can launch your course.
You can grow your tribe.
You can write your book.
You can build your dream home.
You can manifest the miracles.
“Paralyze resistance with persistence.” – Woody Hayes
Stop drowning in a sea of excuses.
Start breathing life into your dreams.
There is ALWAYS a way.
This is Jenny Fenig sending you so much love, light and faith as you GET GUTSY. I’ll see you next time.
