This week’s question from “Ask Us Anything” comes from Hugo.
At the beginning of the year, I made a plan to earn $400K, and I’m getting there. We’re barely halfway through the year, and if I don’t make any more sales, I’m already at $300K. In the last couple weeks alone, I’ve sold $60K. (Some of that is for next year, not this year. But still—sold is sold.)
Everything is working. But I want to make sure my sales don’t dry up. So, what are the “red flags” I should look for to indicate that I’m sabotaging myself? It’s happened before in the past.
I would ask you—why are you even thinking about that? Why are you telling yourself that it might happen again?
Why not just assume you’ve broken through that?
I wouldn’t spend any energy worrying about that. Instead, just keep doing what you’re doing if it’s working.
Keep your focus entirely on the goal.
If there was a red flag, it would be that the sales stop. Or that you’re not following through on the actions you’ve committed to. That would be the first place to look for a red flag.
