There are 10 ways the anxious attachment style could be triggering your response to “perceived threats” in your business, from my own experience.
Do you Recognise any 👇🏻
1️⃣👉Allowing scope creep – doing extra work beyond the original scope, for free, because you fear the response when you ask for additional payment.
2️⃣👉Feeling a need to chase and remind a client who paid for your online program yesterday but has not joined your group yet.
3️⃣👉Worrying when a client who joined your group program doesn’t attend calls, complete tasks, or interact in your group.
4️⃣👉Panicking when someone who bought your digital product or course has not logged in or completed it all.
5️⃣👉Feeling ‘unsafe’ leading group programs because you can’t serve each individual client ‘enough’.
6️⃣👉 Preferring 1:1 because the regular contact with clients reassures you that you’re keeping them happy.
(If it goes unrecognised, this ‘unsafe’ feeling will lead to you sabotaging your group program launches in one way or another!)
7️⃣👉Uneasiness about whether to chase an unpaid invoice or declined subscription, or how to word the message, in case they get annoyed with you and don’t pay at all.
8️⃣👉Stressing that a prospect has changed their mind about working with you because although they agreed yesterday, they have not paid yet.
9️⃣👉Worrying that following up with someone who showed interest in working with you but went quiet, will put them off.
🔟👉Fretting about sending ‘too many’ emails or posting ‘too often’ in case you annoy people, or a specific person, and they won’t like you anymore.
If you recognise any of these, you can learn more in the book, “Attached”, by Dr Amir Levine and Rachel SF Heller.
That is my list, would you add anything else?
