When it comes to setting goals and achieving success, many people erroneously assume that it has to be a solo run. The mindset of competing against one another is so deeply ingrained in our subconscious minds and we are conditioned to see other people as obstacles rather than companions. I recently had a conversation with a young man who is not only thriving on his own but is achieving milestones by rendering meaningful service to others.
What makes Abdul-Qawiyy’s work so fascinating is how he has maintained a success-consciousness and is simultaneously working to advance the good of other people through his work with online course creators. I was struck by how he is proving that these two ideas can exist in tandem with each other. I recently arranged an interview with Abdul-Qawiyy to share how entrepreneurs can strike the balance between servitude and profit.
What is the best method for course creators to show up in their zone of genius?
My motto is simple. How can you create the highest level of leverage for yourself to simplify what you have and, deliver transformation to your audience while appearing in your zone of genius?
The goal is to help people understand the value of staying true to themselves. You can still attract a tribe of people who rock with you and will resonate with what you share without having to resort to any gimmick or doing anything unethical.
Most course creators are too focused on the price instead of selling the experience. Your goal should be to make people feel like even at 4-figures or more, they are getting your offers at a steal. When you get clear on the value you offer and can deliver impact on a large scale without necessarily trading the bulk of your precious time for it, life becomes easier for you.
What is the biggest threat to a creator who is trying to build on this servitude model?
This will be complacency. There are a lot of entrepreneurs who become successful by serving others, and suddenly feel like they’ve gotten to the top and don’t need to learn from anyone or learn anything again. What I believe in is new level, new devils. As you progress, you face new challenges that you cannot necessarily overcome with your old strategies.
The biggest threat will be if you get too comfortable without pushing hard for the new heights and investing in yourself via masterminds, relationships, etc.
So even if you’re making six figures, you can always learn from someone who’s made seven figures as there are always new levels.
Exactly. There is always some new skill or habit you can be focusing on honing. In my case, if I was just starting out right now, I’d sharpen my skills in persuasion and also learn how to generate a ton of traffic using different platforms like Facebook, Google, etc. Then I’d look for people with an established presence with an offer, and help sell their offers for a percentage of sales generated. I’d document the entire process and sell it as a course.
Now I have a skill that makes me money and an offer that can be sold round the clock. Once I make enough money, I’d invest in a credible mentor to fast-track my journey. That is the most crucial part. You should never underestimate the impact that solid guidance can make on your overall journey.
What is your best advice for someone who wants to grow in any area of their life?
I’d say start where you are with what you have. You will figure it out along the line. Also, give it time because when you become impatient with your actions yet patient with the results, you’d be shocked how fast you level up.
If you stick with something long enough and stay true to yourself and your craft, you’d be shocked how fast you level up.
