Are you in the DEEP END?
You wade in the zero-depth and your feet are covered with water.
You walk farther in and now your knees are covered. It’s a little harder to walk but you still have no problem keeping upright.
You get to your stomach area…you hold your breath in and suck in your stomach as the water feels cold (why do we do that anyway?).
You get up towards your neck and it feels a little uncomfortable but you can still breathe and you can still stand.
As you dive into the water and swim into the deeper water, you feel confident and excited.
Then when you pick your head up out of the water, you have to tread. You can’t touch anything and you have to work just to keep your head out of the water. It’s not as easy because you can’t feel the bottom – you don’t have a foot on the ground.
You’re in the deep end.
How can you relate this to business? Check out this video to learn what being in the DEEP END means in both business and life.
Being in the deep end means you’re taking risks and doing things that you’ve never done before. It means that you are looking for new ways to grow and you’ll do almost anything necessary to get there.
Being in the deep end means you can’t touch – you aren’t entirely sure if your strategies will work – but you’re going to do it anyway.
The only way to grow yourself and your business is to get out of the safe end – the shallow end. When we stay in the shallow end, we do things that are safe. We use strategies that are “old school” or we’ve been doing for years.
It’s safe there because we have a solid base. It’s safe because we know what to do and what to say.
When we move into the deeper end, we become less sure of what we’re doing or how to do it – or what to say! But THIS is where the growth happens.
Getting into the deep end means you’re going to be uncomfortable and you’re going to have to work harder (not necessarily longer). Is it worth it? YES! I have yet to meet a business owner or network marketer who is satisfied with where their business is.
We naturally want more. We naturally want to grow bigger and better. Both personally and professionally.
So what are you waiting for? Jump off the high-dive into the deep end!!! I’ll meet you there.
Move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new. -Brian Tracy
