Business Is Like Sex

Business Is Like Sex

Business is like sex
 
Yes. I’m about to go there. 😁👍😂
 
When I got married I was a virgin.
 
I was not a pro at sex by any stretch of the imagination.
 
Neither was my husband.
 
Sex, the first time, is super exciting and thrilling and funny and clunky and awkward all wrapped up together.
 
I don’t speak for everyone…some of you maybe came out of the womb amazing at sex.
 
This post isn’t for you.
 
Did not being good at sex deter us?
 
Heck No!
 
NOT AT ALL.
 
In fact, we were inspired by it.
 
It became our life’s work to get good at sex. 😁
 
We did A LOT of practicing.
 
We didn’t think it was bad to practice or that there was something wrong with practicing.
 
We loved practicing.
 
So why, for the love…
 
Do we think we should be awesome at business the first time we try?
 
This scenario has happened with me and several clients. I’m figuring we are not alone….
 
You set a goal of making $9k in a month.
 
You don’t make it…you make $8k+
 
You are completely disappointed.
 
The next month you tell yourself it was terrible.
 
You tell yourself you neglected your family.
 
You tell yourself you didn’t know what you were doing.
 
It was messy and you fell short of your goal.
 
You give yourself zero credit.
 
Years go by with you believing this story.
 
No more practicing.
 
No more showing up the way you did during that $8k+ month.
 
It was a failure.
 
The end.
 
Done.
 
You’re not alone, right?
 
How many of us have done the exact same thing?
 
We tried something.
 
Made it mean it wasn’t meant to be.
 
We start thinking…
 
We misread the signs…
 
We thought we were supposed to do it but maybe we weren’t.
 
We didn’t make our goal.
 
We should head a different direction.
 
We make failing and falling short mean all kinds of things about us.
 
So we quit.
 
When really…
 
No one is amazing the first time.
 
We aren’t meant to be.
 
We could have said that about sex.
 
That was a fail. Awkward. Not a 10 the first time.
 
We could have quit trying.
 
We would have missed out on the fun of practicing.
 
We never would have got to have 10+++++ sex.
 
The same is true in your business.
 
Of course the first time isn’t going to be what it could be.
 
There’s got to be a first time!!
 
For sex and business.
 
Don’t give up after your first try.
 
Or your 100th.
 
Or your 1000th.
 
Believe it or not…
 
You’re getting better every time. 😉
