Well hello! This is probably a post you never thought I would write since I currently sell three courses!
But it’s not exactly what you think.
See, 99% of my posts have a reasoning behind them. Either it’s something my followers are emailing me about, or what people are asking about in my FB group of 5K+ OR other Facebook groups I am apart of.
With SO MANY courses out there on a million and five different things, it’s hard to choose which one is right for you. It’s a SUPER saturated market. Trust me. I get it.
But I am here to tell you, buying a course (on whatever topic) is NOT a quick fix to your problem.
Let me explain.
Us content creators create these courses with the purpose of TEACHING you how to do so something specific. Whether that be mastering Pinterest, learning how to start your own business, or learning how to potty train your 3-year-old.
MOST (not all) content creators have mastered something specific, and they want to teach you how to do the same. See how I use the word “teach” more than once? Because it’s just that. We are showing YOU how to do it.
The catch? You have to do it. You HAVE To put in the work. Period.
Now maybe you are thinking, well, duh! Or maybe you are not.
However, I get an email every now and then saying, ” I have gone through your course, and I have not seen results.”
I always respond with, “I am so sorry to hear that! Do you mind if I take a look at your Pinterest account for you?”
Guess what I see EVERY SINGLE TIME?
They have not implemented ANY of the steps in my 100+ page course — none of them.
You guys, I wish I was exaggerating this. Sadly, I am not.
So I reply with, ” Hey, I looked at your account, and I see a lot of areas that need work. Did you take the time to go over the end of chapter re-caps and implement all the strategies in that chapter before moving on?”
The answer, “well, no.”
Insert palm to face. Simply reading a course is NOT going to help you. EVER.
What will help you?
When you take the time to go through the course step-by-step. No matter the course! You can’t just read a book and your child will magically pee on the potty, I WISH it worked like that. But you know as well as I do that it does not.
Success comes with a LOT of work, then even more work.
Then probably some tears and frustration.
But you keep going.
I promise you right here and now that if you do take a course to help you with whatever you need help with, you will have 150% success IF you put in the work.
Can you tell this is a sore subject? I think there are so many people out there who want overnight success, or maybe they read something saying, “this will make you rich overnight!” There is no such thing as an overnight success.
When you see someone online whom you deem successful, you don’t see the back story. What they did to get there. How much time and EFFORT they put in to gain the successes. And heck, you also don’t see what they continue to do daily to keep their success going.
Point of the story? If you put your mind to it and put in the work, you WILL be successful!
Don’t give up and happy pinning!
