What Got You Here Won’t Get You There
Hello welcome to Debbie’s Daily Tips!
I was at an event and I heard somebody say, “What got you here won’t get you there.” I love that. Think about this, what got you here, won’t get you there. I was looking at something and I may have mentioned this before, it was a picture of a dinosaur, dinosaur bones standing up at a museum and it says, “You were powerful, once before.” You’ve heard it said, “Don’t let on your laurels,” and I’ve even heard, “You’re a legend in your own mind. ”
So I think you get it, you always have to be evolving and changing, climbing to that next level of mastery. Because you know, there are always those young and aggressive hunters coming up behind us, looking to take our spot.
When I decided to launch my own coaching company a few years back, I had a slogan in my mind. I thought, I don’t want to be worried about out competing and thinking, what is the competitive coaching company doing or not doing? Because quite frankly, I don’t care. In most cases, I don’t necessarily agree with some of the practices, or I want to improve or grow beyond some of those practices. So why would I worry about what they are doing?
Instead, I decided I wanted to out innovate them. So to out innovate them, I have to listen to what’s going on in the market, I have to study the market, I have to study the trends, I have to talk to all of you about what you’re experiencing because my self, my team, my coaches, we cannot rest or stop. And neither can you!
I want you to think about that. You cannot be complacent. If you are, someone is out there gunning to take your position. So I want you to think about what got you here, and how it won’t get you there. And therefore, you need to challenge yourself daily.
Have a great day! I look forward to talking to you soon.
