I just move on.
I am not interested in forcing your hand in the air (to wave it like you just don't care). What I am interested in is working with people who do get it and get me at the same time.
I have learnt (like every good lesson—the hard way!) to not try and 'convince' anyone.
In fact, these days I'll often make it very clear that if someone is absolutely convinced that what I am saying makes no sense and will never ever ever work I'm cool about it. Of course, I let them know I think that's not correct and suggest (politely, of course!) that they can tell that to all my clients and a whole bunch of other people who it is working for and see if they remain convinced. But I don't mind.
I don't actually mind if they don't get it. I mean it's annoying, of course, as I KNOW the difference it would make if they DID see it, but it's not my job to convince them. It's the old 'you can take a horse to water...' scenario.
Because here's the thing: I don't mind if you don't like me, I don't mind if you don't get me, I don't mind if you don't care one jot for my ideas and my take on things, or Things for that matter... and that's because I am saving my energy for the people that DO care. The people that DO get me and my Thing and the whole Being a Business Celebrity way of working—every single bit of my energy is focused on them. Absolutely no point me wasting a dot of my energy on working with people who are against me, or wanting me to 'prove it' to them.
I am very vocal about not wanting to work with 'prove it' people. It's totally exhausting for a start, and the upshot is (nod to lesson learned) that a 'prove it' person is NEVER satisfied. There is always something that could have been done better. Always. And to enter a relationship knowing you're 100% headed for a defeat and an unsatisfactory ending seems rather pointless to me (not to mention very disheartening!). So I don't.
Now, that's not to say that I work with people who gladly bound in having no idea what I'm about. Most people do their homework and their research and either see me speak or watch videos or chat to me first—which makes total sense (I do that too)—but they also get that the Thing-finding and getting famous for it thing is something we'll be working on TOGETHER and therefore I don't have all the answers and certainly can't take all the action for them. I just make sure I work with people who are looking for someone to support them and help steer but not 'fix everything'.
I can't fix everything. I wish I could as I can assure you I'd be charging a lot more :) But I find Things, and I help you see what you can do with yours, and give you ideas to turn it into a business. That's all. I don't magic you into a new person, I don't qualify you in a raft of new skills, I don't catapult you into stardom (or at least not right away!)—I am here as a guide. You will be doing the work, which is why I don't mind if you don't want to. Because not everyone wants to do the work.
When you do want to do the work, let me know and I can help you with that! I've most definitely got a plan we can work on together. Just don't ask me to prove it to you, you'll need to come committed to making it work because then it will.
