Help Me Out Here.
Help. Tell me if this has ever happened to you:
You’re having a conversation with someone you respect, and all of a sudden they say something shocking.
It happened to me just last week.
But here’s the shocker – their statement was about me!
Let’s back up and start at the beginning.
A friend told me they wanted to help me. They made it clear that what they had to say was in my best interest; it wasn’t an insult or a criticism.
You and I both know that doesn’t usually lead to something good. But here goes…
“Bruce – we’ve known each other for years. I know how much you care about people and how much you want to see people succeed.
You love being a resource – introducing them to someone who can help, telling them a story about someone who overcame their struggles by changing their message. You love to tell stories of transformations with your clients, friends, mastermind members, and so on. And you dislike seeing people struggle, especially when you know how to help!”
It doesn’t sound bad yet, does it?
But then they said: “But you know what? I’m not getting that from your weekly blogs – I don’t see anything about how much you truly care and how much you want to help people!”
That hit me!! I couldn’t stop thinking about what they said.
The next day I woke up with a new perspective. I always assumed that people – especially my long-time readers – knew I wanted to help people succeed and not struggle! That I want to be a resource for them. That I am concerned…
But the more I thought about it, the more I realized I’m not saying it point-blank – that it’s difficult for me to see people struggle when I know how to help.
I’ve been writing these weekly blogs for over 15 years now. Writing them is one of the highlights of my week. I love sharing ideas and perspectives, and yes – even stirring up a little controversy now and then! But perhaps my friend was right – maybe I wasn’t showing my heart…
I’ve been working with my core team for the last three years on new programs. And we came up with three acronyms for each program.
Next month, we will launch two programs – a do-it-yourself program and a done-with-you program.
I won’t start promoting my programs in this blog – that’s not what it’s about. But I do believe this:
The letters, emails, and testimonials that touch me the most are where I’ve helped someone, opened their eyes, showed them a path, improved their personal or professional life, and made something significantly better. I love receiving those!
We both know the old saying, “Nobody cares how much you know until they know how much you care.” So, I’m going to start sharing some heartfelt stories. Personal stories. Family stories. Friends’ stories. Stories about people who have successfully made life-changing pivots. Stories from my MasterMind members – where they are today versus where they were yesterday.
Why? Because there’s nothing more I want for you than your happiness and success in every way imaginable. And if I can be a part of it – even better!
