I’ve heard the saying ‘opposites attract’ when it comes to finding that special ‘one’, who you’d want to spend the rest of your life with. But the same is also so true for me when it comes to my clients.
As I looked through my schedule for the week ahead, it struck me just how many of my current small business coaching clients are Creators and Stars!
To a Trader like me it could seem like they are from a far away planet.
The way they naturally think and act is so different from me. But instead I truly get a buzz from working closely with them.
They’re super innovative and always have so many ideas of what they could do.
I love seeing their reaction when ask I ask them – “when are you doing to do it by?’ – it’s like I’ve sworn at them at times.
Instead of standing at the top of the ‘skyscraper’; admiring the view from there and thinking about all the potentials that are out there, Traders like to be at ground level and are very practical minded.
Typically if left to their own devices or without super self-discipline, a Creator or Star’s amazing visions can remain as an idea before the next spark of inspiration hits them (& then the next).
But you can’t really take an ‘idea’ to the bank to get cashed, can you now?
So I love helping these talented individuals to take their ideas and do some real stuff with them, so they have a greater chance of happening.
“Yes sometimes it can feel less ‘fun’ for them when they’re having to focus upon the nitty-gritty planning and execution stages. The same can be said for me, when given a blank piece of paper and attempting to come up the next new or novel idea!”
However, when you remember that we don’t have to do it all ourselves and that we use each other’s talents, then things can really start flowing more easily. And that’s where the real magic is, as when you help other people to get into flow – they help you get into flow too!
What else could you ask for?
