Talk to us about what old programming means?
Old programming is anything that you’ve been taught from your childhood until really, you are able to make your own decisions. They’re taught to us by our parents or teachers,, our coaches, our tutors, family members, like whoever is teaching us, especially when we’re young kids, up to seven, we don’t really know anything, we don’t really have beliefs of any kind. So the first seven years are so important because we absorb everything that we’re being told. Everything. Old programing is anything that you believe in to be true for you right now.
2. Talk to us about how old programming can hold us back from growing our current venture?
One of the things that I that I talk to people about is we need to literally erase everything that we know about what it takes to work as an entrepreneur because it’s literally backwards. We have to invest in ourselves first, we have to invest in our time. We have to totally rewire. And that’s why I go so deep with people about their old beliefs, because I really, truly believe that if we rewire that, our business will just explode.
3. What strategies can we implement to start rewiring our old programming?
Number one, you need to start looking at what business means to you. What do you want and what are your definitions of what a business looks like? What are your definitions of what success looks like? So asking those questions, and really just sitting with yourself and saying, “What do I believe right now?” Like, what do I believe about what it’s going to take to build my business say, to five figures or six figures? What is that going to take? What kind of energy is it going to take and what are my beliefs? If you don’t look at that first and you just go head on into your new venture, there will come a point where you won’t be able to move forward. And this is where people have a hard time scaling. Because they’re like, I have this thing and it’s working really well, and I don’t understand why it’s not scaling. A lot of that is belief based.
Second thing is honestly surrounding yourself with people who, are doing not the same thing as you, but who are chasing the same big visions. I truly believe everybody on this planet has a different path. So, finding people who you can celebrate with when you get a new client or who you can bounce ideas with who you can talk to you when you’re having, you know, a hard day to kind of just bounce you back because a lot of the times it’s all emotional for us, especially because we’re so close to our business. So that’s number two. surrounding yourself with people that are going to empower you.
And then number three, I would say is to just really focus on who you are here to serve. So one of the biggest objections that I get when it comes to sales, and this is why I started my podcast is it’s like, I don’t want to sell because I don’t want to sound sleazy, I don’t want to sound like I want to make money off of this person. I don’t want to sound like I’m trying to get something out of them. And a lot of the times the confusion comes from the fact that they don’t actually know who they want to work with. Don’t be someone who says “I’ll work with anybody.” Because guess what, you’re going to get anybody and you’re going to get people that are going to be excited and then they’re not going to do anything, you’re gonna waste your time. And it’s the same thing with coaching when you are like “I’ll help you with all the things,” the reality is, is that when people go to find you, especially high level people who want to hire somebody for a really expensive price, they will be so confused about your messaging that they won’t even look at you. So one of the things that I teach with my clients, especially about scaling is you have to be so niched down. You have to be so crystal clear on who you’re here to serve. That clarity is going to show up in your Instagram posts, that’s going to show up in your stories, it’s going to show up on your website, it’s going to show up in a podcast interview or podcast that you’re doing. It’s going to show up everywhere. And if you are sending out a confusing message, you’re never going to make the money that you want to make in your business. You will always be chasing the next thing.
4. What mindset is required to grow and scale a business?
Essentially, you really have to believe that whatever you envision is going to come true. I know that that’s really hard for some people to understand, because a lot of people will say, “Well, you know, it’s circumstantial, or it really depends on my messaging, and it really depends on blah, blah, blah, blah.” And I’m like, listen, if you don’t believe that you can make six figures in your business- like truly, truly down to your bones, whether you see that number in your bank account or not, your business will never scale to six figures. You are able to control what comes into your life, you’re able to control what kind of people you invite into your life. And that’s why, l I say, getting super, super clear about what you who you want to work with is super, super important. If you don’t believe that you can have certain things, they’re never going to become your reality, because you’re always going to say, I’m not enough. I’m not enough. I’m not worthy. I’m not enough. I’m not enough, and I’m not enough. We need to face that and say, “okay, but what if it was different? What if I was in that? What if I started to think this way and say to myself that I am a six figure entrepreneur? What would that feel like? Like if I were to give you if I were to put six figures into your bank account, what would that feel like?” I always tell people to dream big all the time. And the one mistake that I see people make is that they dream for like three months or six months and then they’re like, it’s not working. Then, they just give up and they’re like, the, you know, manifestation doesn’t work. What I’m attracting doesn’t work. But what we forget is that we need to give the universe, God, whatever you believe in, time to rearrange your previous life to fit this new one that you want and sometimes it doesn’t happen overnight. Sometimes you have to give a time, and the most important part is that you still believe even when it doesn’t seem like it’s gonna come true.
Most of the time people give up before the magic happens, before their manifestation becomes true. What I encourage people to do is always hold the faith, even when it feels like it’s not going to come true. Because that’s where the magic happens- when you hold the faith, when it looks like it’s not going to happen. I think a lot of the times, you have to tell yourself that you’re never going to quit, your business is always going to change, things are always going to move in different directions. But you have to promise yourself that you will never quit on yourself because essentially, in our business, if we quit, we’re quitting on ourselves.
