Have You Hit the Upper Limit on Your Success?

From as early as I can remember, I’ve had an “Upper Limit Problem.” That’s what many entrepreneurial coaches, business planners, and spiritual teachers describe as an internal reluctance to accept a life more abundant and successful than what we can currently tolerate. Notice I wrote “tolerate” not “imagine.” That’s because the Upper Limit Problem really has little to do with our ability to imagine ourselves as successful. It has to do with how we react when we start to experience what we’ve already imagined—the early stages of success, wealth, expansion, and recognition.

Your Dose of Motivation to Charge More, Do More and Be More For Your Law Practice Clients

This week, one of the lawyers in our Personal Family Lawyer® program sent the following email to our private forum: “My assistant told me today that I am only appealing to the top 1% of people as potential clients, and that most people can’t or won’t pay our fees. He suggested that if somebody wants a will, then do a will, and charge him $500. Suggested that we should use PFL as a guideline, and not focus so intently on PFL. Compared the program to an infomercial when everything looks good, but ‘results shall vary.’” I wanted to share some … Continue reading »
