In my consultancy work, I have learned that people don’t like their problems to be easy to solve, especially by others. For instance, many of them prefer talking for a whole hour about how a certain problem affects their lives and doesn’t let them sleep, and because of that, they can’t do this and that, and they can’t manage and are completely unhappy. Instead of staying quiet, listening, and finding that their problem can be solved in one or two hours using a different approach, they waste their time. Of course, a solution usually costs money, especially when it is offered (and implemented) by somebody else. Whining, instead, is free. People don’t like to find out how simple and tiny their problems are according to the justified opinion of those who have viable solutions to these problems because that would affect their ego.
When, for instance, you offer solution after solution to somebody telling you: “Yeah, but…” and rejecting with an unimaginable success all of yours, you should know that that person is not really looking for a solution but a lending ear to the importance of their own suffering. Women are specialists by far. They are also the clients most likely inclined to pay for the consultants’ bread to solve their problems once correctly diagnosed.
If you are in the habit of letting yourself be impressed by the weight of the problems you raised while waiting, look at this little story. I hope it will make a significant difference.
Also, I have terrible news for those who hope to be left with the same problems after you thoroughly read this post: if you also watch the video, which is about 2 minutes long, you stand no chance!
Do you still have problems? Then, you are invited to consultancy.
Best wishes and have a bright day!
