Ever experience something like this?
Are you Accepting Annie? Get out your superhero cape and get busy! You have a tendency to make things happen quickly, however, sometimes your activity is not as fruitful as you’d like it to be. You can lose passion because of your focus is on your TO-DO list, and you don’t really expect miraculous results. For you, life is a journey of working hard and getting things done so that you can win. You likely agree with the statement, “if you want something done right, you’ve got to do it yourself,” and while you were taught great skills for success growing up, you were also taught to rationalize why people are the way they are, and make excuses for others, leaving you on your own to get it done. Sometimes you feel like you are on a different planet, and you have to work hard to comprehend the lack of commitment around you.
It’s clear these skills work for you in many ways, but they take their toll, Annie. You’ll only grow so far without attracting magnificent support and new ideas, and you won’t from the viewpoint you hold today. We’ve got to make some shifts to take your drive to excel to a more fruitful place!
Annie, your ability to quickly “accept” what is, so you can move ahead in life, gets in the way in your sales conversations especially. You can be quick to buy into the stories that your prospects give you for why they can’t work with you. You know that YOU can overcome anything, but you aren’t really convinced that others can, and this tendency to discount the ability and commitment of others is losing you cash.
Ready for help, Accepting Annie? If you want it done right, do it yourself, right? But being in control has it’s pitfalls.
