Have you ever asked yourself “How do I get clients?” At times it might seem the most logical question to ask but do you realise that you can’t get the right answer if you ask the wrong question? “What! What questions am I meant to ask?” Well how about “How can I serve more clients? What problems do I solve and how can I articulate that clearly in a way that would attract all the clients I’d like to serve?” It’s not a matter of semantics. Feel the energy of those questions compared to the first; it’s very different. The former is focused on what you can get; the latter two are focused on what you can give, how you can contribute. The quality of your life and the quality of your practice is based on the quality of the questions you ask.
It’s easy to feel discouraged and feel a measure of self-doubt when you’re not seeing all the clients you’d like to be. Not to mention the sheer frustration that goes with thinking of all the people you really could help if you could just get them in front of you. However asking “How do I get clients?” isn’t likely to help you do that as it’s focused on what’s missing, clients. At the root of this question is the energy of lack and powerlessness. It’s difficult to attract or create anything from this space. A different question that comes from a place of what you have to give comes from a place of authentic power, not powerlessness, and that’s attractive.
So, remind yourself when you’re tempted to ask “How do I get clients?” that there are far more powerful questions, the asking of which will feel more congruent with who you are as a practitioner. What questions can you ask today that really will help to bring to you all the clients you wish to serve?
