Missing opportunities and targets – WHY – Douglas Vermeeren

leave a comment »

When I am teaching the Personal Power Mastery course level that is designed for Business & Entrepreneurs I often hear of people concerned that they want to find more customers, discover more opportunities for their companies and identify ways that they could increase their profits.

Many of these people ave tried a lot of different things and may have found quick fixes or small improvements. But most of the time high levels of success have somehow passed them by.

As I have observed these individuals it has become clear why most of them miss their target goals and what they can immediately do to fix it.

Problem #1 – When they look at new things to do they move froward with what they want. Too many business owners progress their business from an ego point of view. In others they move their company in the direction of the thing they think the customer needs and wants. They move towards things which they think will make them look better. Often they also move toward things that they find easy to do rather than gain new skills to serve. Your desires however great aren’t really what your customer is looking for.

Problem #2 – They aren’t hearing the complaints. Customers will tell what they need. Just listen to their complaints about their problems. These are what they are trying to solve and are most willing to pay for. Too often business owners just nod their head when they hear complaining when they should be taking notes. Especially when it comes to things they may hear about their competitors and the marketplace. Some of our best materials and developments have come to our company as we have heard horror stories about how other training programs let people down.

Problem #3 – You’ve heard it before and nodded your head but most likely you haven’t done a thing about it. Problem # 3 is that most people don’t get these opportunities because they aren’t prepared. Success doesn’t just fall into place it arrives only as you are ready to receive it. It isn’t an accident that the same people keep making incredible progress or that their companies continue to grow and soar. The stretch themselves and reach for the next level and all the opportunities on that next level reach towards them to help them up.

It’s like climbing a ladder. You can’t reach the rung of success until you step up a rung yourself. Then it’s in reach.
