Business Coaching: What To Do When You Are Stuck And Hit A Plateau

First, let me give a shout out to the Mobile Agent TV guys and Michael Greene.

Michael tweeted…

Thanks @MobileAgentTV for introducing me to @darinpersinger! Best used 5 minutes of my day reading his e-mails!

Awesome! Thanks guys!

I’m a fan of any transformation story… business, health, etc.

It inspires me to see people commit, fight past the struggle… the desire to quit and give up, keep at it and still achieve.

The other week I watched a show called Extreme Weight Loss. The host is named Chris Powell. He specializes in extreme weight loss transformations. And this show was about the first husband and wife he ever worked with at the same time.

In the first 90 days, they did amazing. The had a goal to lose 150 lbs between the both of them.

At their 90-day weigh-in, the wife had lost 75 pounds, and her husband had lost 86 pounds. EPIC WIN!!!

But at their next 90 day weigh in, they didn’t quite have the same results.

They were frustrated and complained to Chris…

“We are doing the exact same thing we did the first 90 days. We are still eating clean, we are following the same exercise routine.”

Well there’s the problem!

Chris explained to them that they no longer had the same body they had the first 90 days. In order to get better results now, they would have to pick up their intensity.

It reminded me so much of what I see in business.

Business owners, sales people think there is this magically orbit. They just need to get to a comfortable level and coast.

This is what I call a “Death Valley” in business. The gap from one level to the next level in business.

What got you here, won’t get you there.

You need to pick up the intensity, but also change your focus on what your priorities are at each level in your business.

This is exactly what I talk about in the first episode of my new podcast.


This episode is called the 5 Levels Of Success. You can even find it on iTunes if you want.
