ST1 - Day 7 - 31h - 2/16/20
Good news but I don’t feel that great. Previously I mentioned a friend of a friend of mine who wanted to do business with me but then things got stuck and it didn’t work out because he didn’t have any orders coming in. Earlier he texted me and said he quit his collaborance with a client and asked me if he should give them my details and I approved. Now let’s see how this goes.
2 business-opportunities coming my way in 1 week, not bad at all.
Now on to why I feel a bit down. I figured I am a case of helper syndrome.
It is… annoying. frustrating. embarassing.
To be more specific, there is a group of young men around my age which is based on personal-development. The problem is… well where do I start?
I think I know a whole ton more about personal development, success, healing etc than these guys, not because I am awesome but because I have gone through the whole process for multiple years. And then there comes this guy around who has the exact same issue like you had a year ago for example. And you know the solution because you have gone through the same shit and you’ve integrated it.
And he just doesn’t take your advice and goes on.
Now, of course I don’t want everyone to just do as I say but you get the point I hope. They don’t even give it a chance. And then you end up going after them and begging them to give it a shot. I feel like I am making a complete foul of myself and I am. This is ridiculous.
This has been bugging me for quite some time now but it got a whole lot better. Just got confronted with a similar situation that’s why I am bringing it up.
Actually, this lets me realise that there is a belief about me always aiming at the wrong target audience.
I think that is the very reason why my business opportunities got stuck and my products haven’t sold so far - because I believe I always attract people to my solutions who are just 0.5 inch away from the actual target audience for which the solution is perfect.
I remember as a kid when I sold my stuff to people and people came and wanted to buy but then, last minute decided against it because of a reason totally unreasonable to me and I got really annoyed because I tried to explain to them and they wont listen.
People who come to me have the exact same problem like I had a while ago, so similar it is painful to watch. But they are just not the right audience for my solution/product.
I guess that’s what it is. It sucks. Its frustrating. Sorry for ranting about it but I hope you can understand.
Imagine growing up in poverty and making your way to a millionar. One day, you see a young guy who struggles with the same poverty like you did. You tell him about it and offer to help him.
And he’s just like “Thanks but I don’t believe in that.”
hello darkness my old friend…
Now, I just shake my head and walk away. The problem is this: There are people out there who actually need this help and would appreciate it. Should I just shut down and don’t help anymore? I don’t know what to do. Maybe I should not offer help anymore but still be helpful if someone actually asks me for help.
About the wrong-target-audience-belief…EoG, go get them!
