Why Your Ceiling of Complexity Is Holding You Back

If you ever find yourself smashing your head against the ceiling…

Wondering if it’s supposed to get easier as you grow…

Then you’re not alone.

A lot of entrepreneurs hope things get easier as they scale.

That one day you’ll wake up with an empty calendar, zero inbox, and see your team firing on all cylinders…

But the harsh reality?

As you scale it gets HARDER.

Much harder…

And if you can’t deal with complexity, it’ll keep creeping out of the shadows, grab you, and pull you back down…

That’s why today I want to shine a flashlight on complexity.

If complexity is your Achilles heel, you’ll always struggle to grow your team, your systems, and your revenue…

But if you can manage complexity and get it right, then the sky’s your limit.

Let’s talk about it in today’s GSS episode.

Watch the episode and discover how to break through your own ceiling of complexity.

Here’s what’s on today’s menu:

  1. How to identify your ceiling of complexity, and how to grow through it…
  2. The systems (and templates) I use to handle the complexity within my business…
  3. Uncovering destructive artificial rules you’ve set in place that stop you from getting to the next level…
  4. Are you dealing with complexity from a place of hope or from fear?
  5. One of the most important critical thinking skills you’ll ever need to grow as an entrepreneur (hint: process mapping)…
  6. The one thing you should always put on paper when you’re trying to solve problems…
  7. How to replace your limiting beliefs with UNLIMITING beliefs

If you’re a level 3 person, a level 5 problem seems daunting…

But if you’re a level 7 person, then a level 5 problem becomes a lot less significant. And it doesn’t even FEEL very challenging.

That’s what you want to aim for:

Don’t wish things were easier, wish you were better.

Then the world is your oyster.
