I spent years of my business life trying to put a square peg into a round hole… overcoming this was one of the biggest breakthroughs I have ever had… today I will hopefully show you how to do the same.
Ok, so what exactly am I referring to?
Quite simply, I see people trying to do things that are not suited to them… now, I must stress, I am all for pushing comfort zones, but we all have a series of values, skills, weaknesses, likes, dislikes, abilities and obstacles…. so surely it makes sense to build a business that fits all of the above…. right?
Unfortunately, most people don’t do this… they hear that X is the latest hot topic, and they jump on that, with little thought of whether it is a good fit for them or not.
Just because something works for someone else, does not mean it is going to work for you… despite what marketers may tell you.
In a nutshell, stop looking for others for guidance and start looking inside yourself first.
Sounds simple enough… but it is hard to identify something when you are not sure what to look for, not all of us are lucky enough to know aged 6 what we were destined to do. So here is my DNA questionnaire… answer all of these questions honestly, and you will have a much clearer understanding.
* This is under the assumption that you are doing, or want to make money online in some way.
1) What are three things that you tend to find easy that others find difficult?
2) What are three things you find difficult that others seem to find simple?
3) On a scale of 1 to 10, 1 = super shy and introverted and 10 = loud, confident extrovert, where are you?
4) What have you done previously that has given you a successful result? (it doesn’t matter if it is a small result)
5) If you could only deliver ALL of your content for the next 10 years via one of the following, which one would you choose? (writing, audio, video, in person, on stage)
6) On a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being highly unorganized, and 10 being incredibly organized, where are you?
7) Do you prefer to work alone or with people?
8 – If you could outsource one aspect of your business, what would it be?
The above should help you find your own DNA and identity… copy and paste the above questions, and then answer them in the comments section of this blog post, and I will happily take a look and perhaps give some recommendations and advice to you.
From now on you shouldn’t have to try and squeeze a square peg into a round hole ever again.
