For the Bookworms, here's the gist!
Iiiiiit's STORY TIME!
So back in my freshman year of high school, I liked this boy. And I've always been the type of person who goes after what she wants-regardless of the situation or the "rules".
So instead of being like the normal girls and being shy around this guy that I liked, I did the opposite! I flirted with him and even TOLD him numerous times that I like him! He never rejected me, but he also never said yes to me.
After some time - after my 14-year old self tried everything she could to get this guy's attention and attract him, I got nothing to show for it. In fact, I just had a BIG plate of shame.
I felt like I was a lost little puppy, chasing its own tail. I felt foolish! And you know the shame! In fact, you've experienced it before in your business.
I experienced that same shame in my business with a potential client
There was a potential client I REALLY REALLY wanted to work with and I knew that I could help her! We had worked together in the past and she was happy with our relationship and the work that we created together.
She then approached me about creating a website for her new brand and I was super excited! I had tons of great ideas for her project and knew we could execute something amazing. I chased her down. I did everything I could to get her to work with me.
I knew that I could help her if only she'd book that fucking meeting! I sent her so many reminders to get her signed on so I could help and I got... Nothing. And the big plate of shame was served to me once again.
I told myself that I would NEVER go after another client again!
And that's my reaction every time I feel rejected. Because I go all in with everything that I do - including helping a specific client - only to find that all those efforts were for nothing.
I felt... discouraged and ashamed because I felt like I got rejected and she didn't even have the courtesy to tell me no! She just stopped responding and ignored me, which made me feel worse.
Have you ever felt like that before?
What if we flipped the perspective?
What if instead of seeing chasing clients as foolishly chasing our own tails, we saw it as planting a seed?
When you plant a seed, you do everything to nurture it. But if it doesn't grow, you won't put yourself down. You'll move on to the next seed. It's the same with helping people.
Sometimes the time isn't right and sometimes you were only meant to plant that seed, not grow it! So it's the same thing with attracting clients: plant the seed, make the connection, nurture the relationship, then let it grow. See what comes of it!
So don't chase clients! Never ever chase clients again, I mean it! Instead, see how you can serve, contribute, and nurture. The seed can sprout in that instant and you can have a Giant Tree, or it might take some time to get it to grow!
