Everybody gets to a point in their lives where they feel stuck. Stuck in their jobs, stuck within a particular salary range, or stuck in their businesses, etc. We all want to advance, advance, advance…but we aren’t always sure how. If you find yourself “stuck” within one of these shitty scenarios, perhaps it’s time you wake the hell up and think about taking advantage of a business coach.
What’s a business coach? A professional business coach can sit down and help you evaluate where you are, what your experience is, and where you’d like to see yourself in a reasonable amount of time. Say, five years. He or she will then help you set personal and professional goals for yourself in order to get out of the slump and advance. Don’t let your business or your J.O.B. dominate you and keep you from getting to where you want to be.
Seeking the advice or hanging out with people who are smarter and more intelligent than you are can benefit you. I don’t mean to say that you are stupid, or that you need a tutor, but consider the lessons you will learn from someone who knows what it’s like to be in your shoes? This can be an extremely valuable experience. Think of the information and lessons you could take away from hanging out with a business coach. It doesn’t have to be formal. Go out for a burger or a few drinks. And remember, people LOVE to give advice. So let them…and shut up and listen.
So don’t be the jack ass who sits at a desk and pushes papers for eight hours. You are much smarter than that. And you know it. You know you should be in a higher position, making more money, or running and managing your business more effectively. So do it. Take control over your business, over your career, over your life. No one is stopping you but you.
So it’s time you start making smart and intelligent choices as you move forward and transition into the next stage of your life or in your career. You know…the life where you are dominating your business. Not the other way around.
