Do you sometimes feel stuck in your practice, and don't know what your next steps should be?
Robert Pirsig once said, "Stuckness shouldn't be avoided. It's the psychic predecessor of all real understanding."
I would go further to say it is the Universe holding a big, fat sign in front of your face telling you to slow down and take stock of what you are actually trying to accomplish.
And I use the word "accomplish" quite intentionally, because it is NOT the same thing as doing what you have to do to survive. Or doing what you have to do, to be "fine."
Are you surviving? Are you "just fine?"
Are you feeling like what you are “supposed” to do is work more for less... but deep down, you just don't want to do it anymore?
Today, I want to talk about 6 steps to building a transformational course for your clients.
And so to begin, let me ask you a question...
Have you ever felt like you had a calling to do amazing things with your life, but struggle to find the inspiration, or guidance on what your next moves might be?
Do you want to make more money, but struggle with negative attitudes about ACTUALLY receiving money (let alone charging what you’re worth)?
Often times while we are waiting around, sitting on our hands, complaining about our “stuckness,” we think the inspiration must come from the outside…
On the contrary.
It must come from WITHIN.
You are here on PURPOSE.
Not to punch in and out everyday at a job that undervalues and overworks you.
Not burn yourself out trying to pay your rent with too much work and not enough time.
Not to tell yourself, “I’m fine,” and let your dreams and your creativity die a slow death from complacency and student loans.
You are tremendously powerful.
You were born to be a CREATOR of your life, not just a survivor of it.
You were born to THRIVE.
And what does “thriving” look like?
You tell me!
When you quiet your mind, what message does your soul want to sing?
What wisdom do you have that might ease another’s struggles?
What transformation have you experienced that changed your life?
Who is missing out on your TRUE gifts, because you have yet to take action on it?
Now, earlier this week, a member from my private Facebook group of over 500 therapists, coaches, and healers asked a wonderful question about knowing where to start with building a course curriculum, that could scale your practice beyond the 1:1 business model, online.
And we addressed 4 reasons most online courses fail, and the one way you can avoid that catastrophe, which is to sell transformation, not information.
Now, part of building a transformational course is building a logical and sequential structure that is situated in the context of the client’s experience, and also walks them through the stages of change.
If you are a therapist, coach and/or healer and you are interested in attracting more clients, increasing your cash flow, and expanding your influence online, check out these 7 questions to help you to determine which of the 4 phases of The Abundant Journey you may be in, and your next steps.
