“Shelf Help” isn’t enough

Have you ever gotten in to powerful personal development materials – and there is a treasure trove of brilliant people in this space – loved the material, felt sooo inspired and genuinely motivated to change things – maybe even got started with some changes, and then 2 weeks or 2 months later you notice that not much has changed?

Oh but have I ever been there!

It’s so frustrating too! The degree and intensity of inspiration and motivation is very real. I remember being so committed to making the changes, to doing the things that I was learning. I was genuinely sure change was going to happen! I really wanted to make the changes and seriously thought I would be able to!

Have you experienced this?

The thing is though, a few things are at play that are working against you.

  1. Once the motivation has gone away you’re left twiddling your thumbs unless you’re actually working on what’s beneath all that wonderful motivation. YOU. Unless there’s motive (a deep desire for change) then change won’t happen. The game you’re playing is an intellectual one.

Man that’s frustrating too! I really thought I wanted to make the changes but looking back now, it really was all intellectual. It was wishful thinking! Ugh!

I didn’t go deeper into really understanding me – and that’s KEY! It’s CRUCIAL!

  1. I spent a lot of time and money on books, online programs, expert webinars … it’s called “shelf help”. The Shelf Help material is fabulous but not a sure path to a gradual reprogramming, and that’s what you have to do. It’s your subconscious programming that holds you back – it doesn’t match the success you want. You are truly like a computer – your programming is YOU 1.0, and the success you want requires something like YOU 4.0! Just like a computer, you can only do what you are programmed to do. So unless you are upgrading your programming, all that fabulous shelf help material will have limited impact. 
  2. Doing it alone is fatal to your success. I experienced that first hand. I tried to hold myself accountable and take myself through these high powered webinars, books, and conferences, and apply the learnings by myself. I honestly thought I could do it.

BIG mistake. We can’t do it alone. Why? Because we all have blind spots, we need someone to help us interpret, connect the dots, apply the teachings and keep us accountable. AND we need to be in the right environment to foster our growth and creation.


So I learned the hard way, and I am trying to short cut the journey for you. Save you from the frustration.

The shelf help isn’t enough – it is NOT going to do it! If it were as simple as getting the shelf help and succeeding, we would all go do that and experience fabulous next level successes. It doesn’t work that way. I wish it did – that’s what I tried to do.
