Are You “Consciously Incompetent”? (Hint…you should be!)


It doesn’t sound glamorous, does it? Not exactly something you’d want to announce in a room full of your peers.  “Hey everybody, guess what…?”

But being Consciously Incompetent is actually a good thing.  All it really means is that you acknowledge that you don’t know it all and that you don’t possess all the skills you need in order to get from point A to point B.

It’s your first step toward change

It is the crucial first step to bringing about a positive change in yourself and in your business.  Once you come to terms with the fact that you don’t know what you need to, then you will be teachable. Your eyes and mind will be open to a whole new world of possibilities and opportunities.

Oftentimes, this comes easier to the novice business owner because he won’t have a problem stating the obvious, “Can you help me because I don’t have a clue?”

Usually it’s the person who has been in business for a long time and enjoyed some measure of success who has the hardest time coming to terms with his incompetence.  

It’s called pride.  And pride will keep you right where you are:  Stagnant.

Have you ever been around stagnant water?  It stinks.  Nobody wants to be around it, much less bathe with it or drink it.

And who’s going to want to join you if your business and mindset are stagnant?  Peeeyew!!!


Once you can acknowledge it, you can make the change

So you see? It’s a good thing to be Consciously Incompetent as long as it’s accompanied with the desire to change.  Are you ready to acknowledge it and get the t-shirt?

Say it with me.  “I am Consciously Incompetent but I don’t want to stay here!”

That wasn’t so hard, was it?  Now you’re ready to move on and change it by educating yourself.  There’s a lot of good stuff out there, but I just happen to have some really good FREE training for you!

It’s a 10 day marketing bootcamp that will be delivered to you in short daily emails.

Afterward, if you decide to invest in yourself with the Attraction Marketing Formula, I’ll give you access to an exclusive community of like-minded entrepreneurs that help each other and will help you apply what you learn too.  This is the same group of folks that I am continually learning from and exchanging ideas with.  It’s an amazing resource!

There you have it.

    Exactly! And since you just gave the definition of insanity, these would be the choices: Be Insane or become Consciously Incompetent and ready for change! LOL…thanks for commenting, Emma!

Great post and a very important message however even though in order to make changes you need to be aware of your shortcomings you need to be careful with this message because some people will just get scared and never take action and think that they need to train all day before they do anything.
It’s important to take action even before you’re ready or have everything figured out and train as you go…
