Why do you Defend your Point of View so Fiercely?

Putting across your Point of View

 Have you ever had a conversation and the other person immediately goings into denial, justification or defending their point of view?

Is it that we are defending our point of view, or are we defending our beliefs around this point of view?  Perhaps therefore some people become attached to their point of view, as if it is the only way to achieve this result.

What would happen if you simply gave up trying to defend your point of view? Being able to voice your point of view and then stop worrying about others agreeing with you. There is two important points I would like you to remember and that is not everyone is going to agree with you, and you can not control how others think?

When others try to prove you wrong listen to what they have to say. This does not mean that you agree with them. Many people who try to prove others wrong come from a fixed mindset instead of a growth mindset. Often, they do not take risks because they like to be the expert. This then leads into resistance to learning new activities. Part of the learning process is making mistakes and take the lessons from those mistakes to develop new skills.

The Problem

You can not control how others think when you point across your point of view.

Not everyone is going to agree with you so stop trying to make everyone happy. 

Focus on the process

 Focus on the process and not the outcome. You have control over how you deliver your message and your intention behind your message. 

Therefore focus on the process of ensuring that you deliver your message with Confidence, Conviction and Clarity. Then let go of the outcome. 

Celebrate that you have had the courage to speak up and be heard. Therefore every difficult conversation you have, you win all the time.

I coach women, online business owners, to take consistent action to get their online courses launched and sold out.

My primary focus is on unlocking limiting beliefs that hold them back, list building, and live launching of their courses, primarily via webinars and easy-to-follow blueprints that step them through the complete process.

I lead the way by being in the trenches, studying with the top online course creators in the world, implementing all the latest proven strategies in my own business, experimenting, measuring, teaching from experience that truly works.

Through a mix of coaching, hand-holding, and honest feedback,

I hold my client's aspirations close to my heart, never leaving them behind feeling isolated or disillusioned
