Beware of the Promise

by | Apr 6, 2023 | Personal Development

I think I’m starting to see something that one of my mentors has been trying to instill in me for a while.

There are plenty of courses, programs, and business opportunities out there making big promises. Which is not a problem.

What is a problem is we can take everything at face value and internalize it. We are told we can have everything we want in life, for instance, so we end up believing we can have everything we want in life through the program, when that simply may not be the case. Because not everyone taking the program is in the same place physically, mentally, emotionally, or spiritually.

Some people are ready to go. Other people already have structures and teams in place. For them, it may be the right program at the right time.

But can you honestly say you liked every book people have ever recommended to you? Exactly. Books hit people differently at different times depending on what they’ve already experienced and the stage of life and growth they’re in.

Certainly, take the program seriously. Get everything you can get out of it. But don’t set yourself up for disappointment. It’s okay to be a little skeptical – even a lot skeptical – of the promise.
